Boy did I have fun on this shoot. Apart from getting to work with one of the most awesome people I know, this my friends is a mission well worthwhile. Depths of Beauty (www.depthsofbeauty.com.au) led by Emmily Banks, is all about helping people make the switch to natural, organic, eco-friendly and cruelty free beauty products. This stuff should be FUN not tricky, so the Depths of Beauty team aim to support the switch by making it as easy and accessible as possible. Most of all, their message is to encourage women to LOVE THE SKIN they’re IN!
The movement celebrates all that is divinely feminine and how true beauty is cultivated from within. It is a FEELING, a vibe, our truth and when we live from our hearts, our most authentic selves, this is where the beauty truly lies.
Check out all the reason to go natural here – but your health and the health of the environment are pretty good starting points! And um… look at these photos, they look just as good (if not better!) than any beauty campaign. Natural works AND performs!
