The beauty of doing something you love brings you into contact with an amazing amount of phenomenal people who teach you things in other areas of your life you weren’t focusing on. Through Insta and our eco-conscious life-style and wanting to support local and meet like minded people we had the privilege of finding an absolute GEM of a human! Meet Storm Pass – an incredible make up artist who is not only a true beauty herself but also a believer of clean beauty and clean living.
Dom and I were lucky enough to meet her and her husband [Kevin Mark Park – famous photographer and coffee aficionado] and even had some amazing images done with them. To say we are lucky to know them is an understatement.
So here is a little bit more about Storm…

Who is Storm?

Hi, my name is Storm Pass and I am a wife, mom and professional makeup artist.

When did you first get introduced to the idea of sustainability?

When I started making a change to cruelty free beauty a few years ago, I started making some changes in other areas of my life, for my family and around our home. I started using chemical free cleaning products that were eco-friendly. I started to fall in love with the idea of using products that were kind to my family and the environment. From there, a passion grew to live more sustainably and to do my part (even though I don’t always get it 100% right all the time.)

What are three things everyone can do today to make a difference?

  1. Reduce single use plastics
  2. Start an eco-brick
  3. Take material bags with you when you do your shopping instead of using the store’s plastic bags
What’s a typical dinner in your household?My family loves traditional favourites, like spaghetti bolognaise, cottage pie, stews etc. I’ve been trying to incorporate more veggies into our meals at dinner time, and less meat (we are a family who eats meat, so it’s more a matter of reducing rather than cutting out completely.)
So, say spag bol is on the menu, I’d make it with half beef mince and half red lentils and let it cook with a veggie packed sauce. We also do a lot of protein and salads.

And some nights it’s pizza or creamy pastas from Uber Eats 😆

What is your idea of the perfect plastic-free pantry?

A glass jar for everything and everything in a glass jar! 😆

Favourite ingredient from Refillery to cook with 

The beef, chicken and vegetable stocks are so delicious and wonderful to cook with. I use them so often! And the mixed herbs!

Post COVID-19 life advice

This virus has changed life as we know it. My advice is to take things one day at a time as we continue to navigate our new “normal.”  Dont sweat the petty stuff, and just do the best you can. Stay positive and look for the good in everyday!
