Best of Beauty: Rainforest Alliance Annual Gala

Last month Oriflame was honoured for our commitment to sustainability at the Rainforest Alliance Annual Gala in New York City. Get inspired by these eco-friendly stars’ style and recreate their looks for this summer’s hot party nights!

Sun-kissed skin, blonde locks, golden shimmery cheeks and shiny accessories; we spotted some of this summer’s key trends as we mingled with A-list celebrities and the top of the sustainability crop.

We were especially mesmerised by the beauty of eco-fashion guru Livia Firth and model Gisele Bündchen (Bündchen is on the Rainforest Alliance’s Board of Directors ).


Natural glowing beauty

The Brazilian supermodel went for a natural, sun-kissed party look. Plump for gold-shimmered skin, bronzy lids and nude lips; clean, lustrous and radiant makeup will make you the belle of the ball.

Start by applying a primer. Cover any flaws with a concealer and finish with a lightweight foundation. Brush gold-toned bronzing powder over your cheekbones, dab gloss on your lips and – voilà! Choose shimmery accessories to match the look.

The world-famous model wore a sweeping evening gown in an organic hemp and silk blend, made just for her.




Glamorous volume 

We’re inspired by Livia Firth, founder of the Green Carpet Challenge. The Italian beauty has ‘eco-fied’ red carpet events worldwide since 2009 by pairing celebrities with environmentally responsible ensembles from the world’s top designers. We especially loved Firth’s long hair.

Get her glamorous green-carpet look in a flash! Dampen hair with a heat protecting spray and set with hot rollers. Brush out, shape curls and waves with your fingers, and fix with spray.


Livia sported a green dress made from recycled PET bottles!
