The quote 'anyone who says diamonds are a girls best friend never owned a dog,' is completely true. My dog is my best friend, co-pilot, encouragement, and so much more. I never thought I could love something so much, and if you have a pet you totally understand what I mean. My pup Luna is a 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog, aka Blue Heeler. They are loyal and loving, usually referred to as 'velcro dogs' because they are always, always at your side. Heelers have almost unlimited energy, but they do have an off switch. As I write this she is curled in her bed having sweet doggy dreams.
My husband and I made the switch a year and a half ago to all natural and cruelty free products. As a pet owner I couldn't imagine harming any animal for testing soap and lip gloss. I am so thankful to all the cruelty free companies out there who make amazing products. I remember seeing a label that said 'tested on owners, not animals' and thinking that was just the greatest thing!
Luna has joined me for a few photoshoots, including my wedding. The photo below was done a few weeks ago by my friend and local photographer Chelsea Banwell. Along with being an incredible photographer, Chelsea is also an Elate Make-up Artist! I can't even believe the photo she captured, the way Luna has her eyes closed leaning in for a smooch is just adorable. I highly recommend getting dressed up, and having a professional photoshoot with your pup. It may sound silly, but you will treasure the images now and forever.
For this look, Chelsea used items from the Elate be:free Spring Collection.
Eyes: Freedom Blue Liner, Sweet - Soulful - Beloved EyeColour, Celebrate Twinkle Powder, Essential Mascara
