If I were stranded in a desert island and was allowed one item of make up, mascara would 100% be my item of choice.
Applying mascara makes such a difference and adds a touch of immediate glamour. I have small eyes so adding mascara to my eye make up routine gives the illusion of a bigger eye.
I always opt for a black mascara to give me intense definition including volume for each lash. If you are fair or looking for a more natural, subtle look I’d go for a brown.
The nourishing formula which includes aloe vera, castor oil and shea butter glides on perfectly with the structured brush wand.
100 % natural ingredients and free from any synthetic preservatives, reducing any risk of infection including redness and irritation.
A must for anyone with sensitive eyes who has struggled with regular mascara.
Refillable, reducing your plastic waste. Housed in a beautiful bamboo case which comes in a cute bamboo pouch with drawstring.
Organic shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter), shea butter is extracted from the fruits of the shea tree, which only grows in West Africa. Its richness in fatty acids promotes nourishment and moisture retention to skin. Recommended as a stimulant to wound healing, it is also protective against UV with soothing and calming qualities.
Make sure your eyes are free from oil or any moisturiser before applying your mascara, you can lightly dust your lashes with a loose powder before applying.
Never pump your wand as this will lead to overloading your brush which will leave mascara clumpy.
If you accidently smudge any mascara around your eye on to your skin, always wait until the mascara dries, wet a cotton swab and use to remove.
Co founder, David Reccole is very passionate about Asian countries, much of his inspiration coming from his travels to India, Vietnam and China.
Upon one of his travels he was visiting a Taiwanese friend who presented him with a bamboo mechanical pencil and a bamboo pen. A brainwave soon followed, if it is possible to make a pen surely the same concept can be used to create lipsticks and other packaging specifically for make up.
In 2012 David Reccole, and 2 of his friends, Philippe Donnat and Yvan Rouvier decided to develop an organic make up brand.
Taking their deep values, their love of nature and awareness of our consumption on the environment, Zao was born. The only make brand that is 100% natural and certified organic by Ecocert.
Bamboo was their first choice of material to use when it come to their brands packaging, a natural carbon storer with an exceptional growth rate, it allows Zao products to display a reduced carbon footprint.
Not satisfied with using bamboo for just their packaging they also incorporate formulas in the form of sap
powder, leaf hydrosol or bamboo rhizome macerate within certain Zao products.
Rich in silica, naturally present and produced in the body, it participates in the process of producing collagen, helping preserve the elasticity of skin tissue.
Whilst some packaging is not 100% plastic free, Zao make up may not be perfect but it is the next best thing on the UK market!
HOW TO USE ▾
Start with the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally close to the root, move up in a zigzag motion while you are looking down. Concentrate on the ends to enlarge the eye and on the centre to open up the eyes. Gently tap the eye lashes when applying mascara to the lower lashes, ensuring that you don’t overload them.
