Glamour Gal Sheridyn Fisher shares her vegan beauty favourites! Sheridyn's go to mineral foundation is Esmi Skin Minerals

Sheridyn: "It ticks all the boxes - Cruelty free beauty, Natural coverage & stays on my skin all day. My skin is naturally a little "oily" and Esmi Mineral Foundation really works with my skin to give it a Matte finish without taking away that natural glow."

Sheridyn: "My skin usually doesn't hold any foundation very well and never all day, where as Esmi really works with my skin type and my makeup now stays on all day. I've even been wearing it in a lot of film work and love the way it makes my skin look."

Sheridyn also loves the new Esmi Loose Mineral Foundation.

Sheridyn: "Have been loving using the new Loose Mineral Foundation  from the Esmi latest Cruelty Free Makeup range! It feels lightweight, has gorgeous coverage and it sits beautifully over the Esmi Mineral Foundation (which I mix together with my organic moisturiser) to create my favourite natural, glowing everyday look Esmi is made in Australia, 100% Vegan & Cruelty free and I love that the individual product packaging it comes in is made from cardboard so you can recycle it when you take the makeup out of the packet, reducing the unnecessary plastic waste that most product packaging creates."  

Beauty Tip! 
"I love mixing Esmi with my natural moisturizer to create an even, natural glow for my skin without feeling to cakey."

ECO ANGEL: Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore Wild Flower

Our April Eco Angel is actress and Flower Beauty founder Drew Barrymore.

Drew Barrymore was born in California in 1975 and grew up in Sherman Oaks. Her childhood was less than perfect and by the age of 14 she became emancipated. Drew was one of Hollywood's most famous child stars with her memorable role as Gertie in Steven Spielberg's 1989 scifi classic E.T. the Extra Terrestrial - which was the highest grossing film of the 1980's.  

Drew Barrymore 1991

In the 90's Drew starred in many movies including Poison Ivy, Mad Love, Batman Forever, The Wedding Singer, and Ever After. In 1995 at the age of 20 Drew co-founded her own production company Flower Films. The company's first film Never Been Kissed starred Drew Barrymore in one of her most famous roles as insecure copy editor Josie Geller. 

Drew's company Flower Films went onto to produce her films Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, Music and Lyrics, He's Just Not That Into You and Whip It!Drew's filmography includes acting roles in 48 films through her career spanning four decades from 1980 to 2015. 

Drew Barrymore | He's Just Not That Into You

In 2007 Drew became a brand ambassador for Covergirl cosmetics. 

Drew: "It was getting my sort of college degree in being a co-creative director for Cover Girl for eight years, being part of the campaigns, and concepts, and marketing, and photography. Working with [makeup artist] Pat McGrath and trying to drive the brand into something I felt like could best serve, as well as the women we were trying to reach gave me so much education that it felt like a waste not to do something with it." 

With her beauty knowledge and experience Drew Barrymore founded her own cosmetics brand Flower Beauty in 2013. Her mission; to empower women to feel beautiful with affordable cruelty-free beauty products. 

FLOWER: "FLOWER empowers women by developing products that help you look and feel great in your own skin, and to embrace your individual beauty with the support of inspired, luxurious products made with you in mind." 


Being an actress Drew has worked with many celebrity Makeup Artists, so she knows a thing or two about beauty! 

Drew:  "I’ve also been in a makeup chair since I was 6-years-old and had the fortune of working with the icons of the beauty industry, so learning, being in love with products, pigments, brands, companies, and just being a constant student of makeup."


Drew's beauty company FLOWER has now expanded to include fragrance, brushes, bags and eyewear. 

Drew: "[The idea is] to build the branches of your tree from a nucleus. The nucleus is colour cosmetics with Flower: Fragrance, brushes, bags, eyewear — things that naturally evolve and don’t feel like they are greedy and all over the place."

Flower Eyewear offers 36 prescription and sun glasses sold in Walmart stores across America. 

FLOWER: "Love the way you look. You no longer have to spend a lot of money to get the high quality, fashion forward eyewear you want and deserve."

Drew: "I'm so lucky that I get to work in such a wide-array of design arenas every day. It's so energising." 

Just like many women Drew loves wine and launched Barrymore Wines to celebrate her love of creating memories around the table. 

Barrymore Wines by Carmel Road includes 3 wines including Drew's Blend Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio and Rosé of Pinot Noir. 

Drew: "I am passionate about wine. There is so much to discover and experience and my travels help me do that. Barrymore Pinot Grigio is made from Monterey grown grapes which is adjacent to the beautiful Blue Grand Canyon section of the Pacific ocean where extreme winds and deep, cold water create the perfect mix of fog and cool temperatures, ideal for growing the perfect grape. Please enjoy this varietal around the table, a place where I feel some of the best memories are made."

Drew: "I have been a long time lover of Pinot Grigio. I know for me as a wine drinker, first impressions is really important and it was one of the reasons that for this label I actually put my Grandfather's crest because I thought if you did gift this wine and brought it looked like something that wasn't overly feminine but it was just more of a timeless gift. I think about the presentation of wine because it's something that you remember that somebody gave you, you bring them into that experience and then you create a memory. And I think that wine has that amazing ability to be something that is so in tandem and so synonymous with memories."

Drew shares more about her life since the age of 14 in her memoir Wildflower. Her autobiography is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges and experiences of her earlier years. 

Follow Drew's daily adventures and join her 7 million followers on Instagram! 

Drew: "Instagram: that’s my platform. I need one and one only.  I’ve never done Snapchat, never done Twitter. Facebook is important but I’m personally invested in Instagram — that’s my channel."

From child star to Hollywood legend to beauty pioneer - Drew Barrymore is a healthy, happy and successful woman and we can't wait to see what she does next!

JESSICA ALBA: Honest Beauty


To celebrate Jessica's 36th birthday this month we're breaking down her Honest Beauty routine. 

You may know our Eco Angel Jessica Alba from her films Into The Blue, Fantastic Four and Sin City. But did you know Ms Alba is worth a cool $340 bucks? Jessica became a billion dollar business babe after starting her Honest company in January 2012 which produces natural, non-toxic household goods, baby products and body care.

Jessica: "We created the Honest Company because we had too. We had to make it easy for parents to buy safe products for their families." 

With no formal business training and no college education Jessica co-founded The Honest Company - "a real life unicorn", a term reserved for start-ups valued at $1 billion or higher. Today, The Honest Company is valued at $1.7 Billion! In 2015 Jessica launched Honest Beauty with 17 skin care products and 66 makeup items. Most recently Honest Beauty hit the selves of Target stores across the US. 

Honest Beauty products feature advanced formulas with breakthrough botanicals, all made without parabens, talc, and synthetic fragrances.  Honest Beauty products are non-toxic, eco-friendly and cruelty-free. Honest Beauty creates a fresh, radiant and flawless finish you'll love. Their on a mission to make you look as good as you feel... And that's honestly beautiful.  

Jessica Alba formulating Honest Beauty

It takes 18 months to develop each Honest product. Jessica recently explained the Honest Beauty product development to Allure magazine. 

Jessica: "We don't own our own factories. We find best-in-class manufacturers, and then I go work with their chemists to create our formulas, or we make our formulas in-house. It's a very rigorous process of quality assurance and quality control. We have a sourcing department. We have a product-development and R&D department - those are the chemists. And then the product development creative is on my side. So I say, "It needs to feel like this; it needs to smell like this; it needs to perform like that; it should be delivered in this type of package." And then I work with the creative-marketing team. It takes about 18 months to make it and to test it. And then I work with my retail team and online team so the product feels exactly the same online as it does [on a shelf]."

Jessica's signature "no makeup" look is fresh, youthful and it's all Honest Beauty! Re-create her look using Honest Beauty products:
  • Cream Foundation in Camel
  • Concealer Duo in Disappearing Dune
  • Invisible Blurring Powder, Contour + Highlight Kit
  • Magic Balm (to highlight!)
  • Brow Filler in Rich Brunette
  • Eyeshadow Trio in Soft Sand
  • True Velvet Eyeliner in Cocoa
  • Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer
  • Blossom Kiss Lip Crayon
  • Dreamy Kiss gloss
Jessica's look was created by celebrity Makeup Artist and Honest Beauty creative colour consultant Daniel Martin. 

Jessica: "I love this mascara: You use the primer on your upper lashes, and then while that's drying, you do your lowers and then coat each with the mascara. No smudges or mascara dust."

Jessica knows that “beauty starts from the inside out.” She recently shared her diet and exercise secrets with Shape Magazine during her latest cover photoshoot. 

Jessica: “I love my shape because it does what I want it to. If I want to go on a hike or a bike ride or go for a swim, I know my body will do everything I tell it to. I also appreciate that I can push myself through when I’m feeling tired. There’s always a little extra something to get me past the tired moments.”

Jessica Alba | SHAPE magazine

Jessica: “With exercise, I get a little more toned and I definitely feel stronger, but my diet is much more important if I’m trying to slim down. In that case, I usually don’t eat gluten, dairy, fried foods or processed foods. I try to stick to a diet that’s low in sugar and carbs and high in lean protein and vegetables.”

The latest Honest Company endeavour is Jessica's new range of Honest Hair Care which launched last August and features pro hair formulas with breakthrough botanicals designed to tame the most demanding locks. 


Honest Beauty didn't become a billion dollar business overnight. Jessica worked hard and lead an incredible team to build Honest into the company it is today. The 340 million dollar girl boss says it's all about the hustle. 
Jessica: "A, I'm a hustler. B, I've been working since I was, like, 12. I've lived all over the world; I've worked all over the world with adults and seen all these different dynamics. I've been part of a lot of businesses' marketing strategies, and I see how they utilize someone like me. I love learning. I'm a sponge. I haven't lost my thirst and desire to learn. Every day is different, and I'm working toward something that I feel really good about. So it's super gratifying."
So take note girls, work hard and hustle and remember to always be beautifully honest.

WONDER WOMAN: Hollie Piper

HOLLIE PIPER Zealous Swimwear 

Every once in a while we are inspired by a kick-ass female with business super powers who is strong and successful. She is fearless, confident and doesn't take no for an answer. Hollie Piper, founder of Zealous Swimwear is one super Girl Boss and our newest Wonder Woman

In this exclusive interview with Eco Glamazine, business babe Hollie Piper shares her passion for Zealous Swimwear and her secret to staying motivated in business.  

Hollie Piper is a born and bred Queenslander, wife and mother of two. She is super creative and began her working career at the age of 18 as an Internationally commissioned Illustrator. Growing up the sunshine state Hollie loved water sports and took full advantage of the swimming culture and Queensland lifestyle. 

Hollie combined her skills in pencil illustration, digital graphics and conceptual art with her love of sports and swimming to create Zealous Swimwear; a brand that truly reflects her beliefs and creative style. 

Zealous Swimwear was established in 2012 with the dream to inspire young athletes to be the best they can be. Passion, drive and the will to succeed is that Zealous is all about. 

This unique Aussie brand was developed with a team (lead by Hollie) of Australian elite athletes, designers, textile specialist and machinists. Zealous aims to provide a garment that allows athletes to be themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin. 

Sounds pretty impressive huh? We think so!

What does “Zealous” mean?

ZEAL·OUS / ‘zeles / adj: To be consumed by intense enthusiasm or zeal. inspired by an active interest or passion

The Zealous brand concept "strength, courage, inspire" is the inspiration behind every garment. Zealous swimsuits are produced with high grade polyester fabric and designed by Hollie using unique, vibrant and colourful artwork. 

As the woman behind the brand, can you tell us more about Zealous Swimwear? 

Hollie: I created Zealous Swimwear with the dream to inspire young athletes to be the best they can be. I developed my unique brand using an expert team of Australian elite athletes, designers, textile specialists, and machinists.

I wanted the brand to embody the notion of passion, drive and the will to succeed in all endeavours. As a brand, Zealous aims to provide a garment that allows athletes to be themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin. We seek to inspire greatness and confidence in athletes around the world by providing an active swimsuit that is durable, fashionable and 100% Australian owned.

Every Zealous Swimsuit is high quality, Australian made, long lasting and designed with training and pro athletes in mind. Zealous is designed and produced for the sole purpose of frequent training in chlorinated and salt water, and designed specifically for an athletic figure. For this reason it's the swimwear choice of Australia's best athletes including Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Pan Pacific Games and World Championship Swimmers.

As the key Designer of Zealous Swimwear, what inspires you to create your unique and vibrant designs? 

Hollie: I draw my inspiration from everything around me. From where I've travel to my favourite movies, music or dream destinations. I love exploring new themes, colours and print textures each season. 

Hollie, what's a typical work day like?

Hollie: I always start my day with coffee, while I check all social accounts and browse my email. I usually settle into work around 7:30 and start by knocking off any admin required, such as processing orders and accounts. Then I start on emails and get any quotes, customer service emails and general enquiries covered off. From there I usually split my days between doing team wear, stock management and social media.

Hollie Piper, Zealous Swimwear owner 

Running a successful brand is a full time job... Add in motherhood and marriage, life can get pretty busy. So what's Hollie's secret to staying on top of her mommy duties and balancing work? The "4am hustle" of course and "no work after 6pm".   

How do you stay motivated and on track everyday? 

Hollie: I'm a list maker and I have a lot of apps and plugins for my computer and phone to help me stay on track with follow-ups, tasks, production and social media. I also work in bulk, which basically means instead of doing one of something I'll bank up several at a time. For example, I'll do a week to a months worth of social media posts in one hit, instead of just scheduling the posts for that day. I'm also partial to the 4am hustle which helps me cover off more work per week.

Being a wife, mother, and business owner - how do you balance work and family? 

Hollie: Up until recently, I was a FIFO wife which meant I had to stay on track with my time on the weeks my husband would be away. This is also why I get up at 4 some mornings to get those hours in that I'll miss while I'm running the kids school and sports. It means I can enjoy watching them do their activity and we aren't so rushed at pick up/drop off times. We try to meal prep for the week ahead so it saves me time in the evenings, which is very helpful, plus I don't really like cooking. I have a no work rule after 6pm and Friday's is my "down day" which is basically my day to do as I choose. I usually just do emails that day and do some cleaning, groceries, and laundry. Then my weekend is somewhat free to relax with my family and get ready for the next busy week.

What’s your best business tip for women running their own business? 

Hollie: Spend more time on your business rather than in your business. Don't get caught up with the running of day to day things, spend time on improving and growing your business. 

Hollie Piper | Stephanie Bowers Photography

Being the founder, managing director and textile designer behind Zealous, Hollie has created one of Australia's best Swimwear brands. Not only does she design each piece of Zealous Swimwear, she runs a successful online store (shopzealous.comand manages the brand's social media channels. When it comes to business Hollie is organised, driven, motivated and most of all passionate about inspiring athletes to be the best they can be with Zealous Swimwear. 

Girls take note, Hollie Piper is one zealous woman and our newest Wonder Woman. Follow Hollie's adventures on Instagram and be sure to follow her brand Zealous Swimwear.
