Master Fall Makeup And Keep Summer Glowing!

As the seasons transition, so does the air. While it’s fun to update your fall beauty routine with new colors, we also recommend transitioning to a routine that is more hydrating and nourishing to your skin, and helps you hold on to your summer vacation glow with plant-powered products that add both color and radiance! W3LL PEOPLE Co-Founder, Shirley Pinkson, is the master of the faux glow, and today she is walking you through one of her favorite looks for Fall 2017.

STEP ONE: Prep that Glow

If you want skin that truly radiates, start your routine by gently pressing a few drops of our Bio Booster Facial Serum into skin. This 7-in-1 botanical serum strengthens skin with turmeric and seabuckthorn, repairs and rejuvenates with organic rose hip and pomegranate, brightens and corrects with algae complex, moisturizes with jojoba, macadamia and olive oil, primes and perfects skin’s surface with broccoli seed oil, soothes sensitive skin and calms rosacea with calendula and carrot seed oils, and helps combat breakouts with organic red raspberry and black cumin. Layering this onto skin before starting your makeup routine helps provide a layer of environmental protection as well as a base that nourishes your skin throughout the day.

STEP TWO: Keep It Fresh

The secret to a glowing look is to keep your base light and sheer. Shirley strongly suggests putting our  Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer over the top of the Bio Booster Serum (or even mixing it together before applying) to help even-out your complexion while still allowing your natural glow to shine through.  Next, apply bronzer to give skin that healthy, sun-kissed glow that we all appreciate in the summer. Sweep the bronzer down along your cheeks and along the bridge of your nose, where the sun naturally hits your face. You can choose between our Bio Bronzer Stick, for a dewy kiss of color, or our Bio Bronzer Powder for the perfect matte brown glow.

STEP THREE: Amp it Up

The light, nourishing layers that you’ve applied to your skin so far should look natural, luminescent and fresh! If you feel like you could amp it up with even more glow, reach for our Bio Brightener Stick , which instantly brightens and sculpts for added glow and dimension. We like to swipe it around our orbital bones and lightly blend using our fingertips. The creamy organic formula has a weightless texture that doesn’t crease, and infuses your skin with green tea, olive oil and organic aloe.

STEP FOUR: Finishing Touches

Our lips are sensitive, and they can be one of the first indicators that fall’s dry air is wreaking havoc on your skin. We recommend keeping them supple and soft with a lip balm that is free of petroleum derivatives, harsh artificial ingredients and fragrance, such as our new and improved Nudist Lip Butters! They offer a soft wash of color combined with penetrating hydration from organic omega oils and aloe. We suggested a couple swipes of our Nude shade to finish off this perfect fall look!

W3LL PEOPLE Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer named one of EWG's Favorite Moisturizers with SPF!

The EWG (Environmental Working Group) is the leading resource when it comes to rating personal care products. Their standards are strict, their stamp of approval is prestigious, and their mission to help consumers identify healthy, safe products is something we can all get on board with, right?

At W3LL PEOPLE, our team works incredibly hard to make sure that all of our products are clean, that they all have top-notch scores in the EWG Skin Deep Database, that each product is crafted with ingredients that nourish and benefit skin, and that our fans love our products as much as we do! We were recently honored to have our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer listed as one of the Best Moisturizers with SPF by EWG!

Bio Tint has a score of 2 on EWG (the lower, the better on a scale of 1-10!), and provides SPF 30 broad spectrum protection through the natural power of pure zinc. This hybrid product goes to work not only providing coverage to even out skin-tone, brighten your overall appearance and protect your skin from the sun, but also uses an advanced bio-peptide complex to help boost collagen production, infuses skin with coconut and broccoli oil for superb hydration, and helps fight off sun-spots or hyper-pigmentation through a combination of pomegranate and algae extracts.

Bridal Beauty Using Natural Makeup from W3LL PEOPLE

Bridal Makeup: create a natural, healthy and nontoxic wedding day looking using products from W3LL PEOPLE.

You’ve said yes-to-the-dress, sampled the cake and booked the photographer, so now it’s time that we sit down and talk about you, m’dear!

Your wedding will be one of the most remembered and talked about days of your life. The photos will grace your memory, Facebook page and walls for years to come, so it’s no wonder that we put tremendous pressure on ourselves to look our best when we say “I do”. Unfortunately a lot of these practices come with a hefty list of toxic ingredients in tow. Professional manicures, loads of hairspray, spray tans and even your makeup products can come with harsh ingredients.

Bridal Makeup: create a natural, healthy and nontoxic wedding day looking using products from W3LL PEOPLE.

Most brides are concerned about performance and long-wear when it comes to their wedding day look. Rest assured, your wedding day makeup look can be glamorous, high-performing, and good-for you! Today we’re showing you our go-to look for green beauty brides!

Bridal Makeup: create a natural, healthy and nontoxic wedding day looking using products from W3LL PEOPLE.

We start this look with our Altruist Foundation Powder. For most brides, especially summer brides, powder foundation will offer a photo-ready finish that lasts all day. Our Altruist Foundation Powder is infused with freshwater pearl powder, which allows this creamy powder to warm up and melt into your skin offering a dewy, satin finish that helps absorb excess shine throughout the day. Your makeup will look hydrated and flawless, but never too dry or matte.

Next, we transform you into an iconic Blushing Bride with a simple swipe of our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick in Nude Rose. Simply swipe the stick onto the apples of your cheeks and blend upward for a wash of soft color that looks natural and timeless. The Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick can also be used on lips and eyes! Try applying it to lips for a perfect wedding day pout!

We will finish our green beauty bride with two coats of our Expressionist Mascara in black. Most brides will find themselves reaching for a waterproof mascara, especially if they plan to shed a tear (or just full-out ugly cry, no judgement here!). But our advice is to instead rely on a healthy, nontoxic formula that is gentle on both eyes and lashes. Keep a tissue handy, and if you tear up or cry, gently press the tissue against your eye to absorb the tears before they turn into running streaks. Non-waterproof mascara can easily be reapplied, so that your lashes look fresh and full, versus waterproof mascara that will likely clump your lashes together or get spidery if reapplied.

To take the look from everyday to “the best day of your life” apply a highlighter. Not only will it add dimension and a lit-from-within, ethereal glow, but highlighter looks beautiful in photos! Simply apply a swipe of our Bio Brightener Stick to the apples of your cheeks and around your orbital bone.

Those four products are all you need to create a beautiful, natural look! Stop there, or finish with these additional suggestions to increase the glam:

  1. Swipe your lips with our Bio Extreme Lipgloss, which naturally plumps lips and fills in fine lines.
  2. Line your eyes with our Hypnotist Eye Pencil for a more defined eye, or smudge the line for a perfect little daytime smoky eye.

The Power of Pearl Powder

The Power of Pearl Powder: the health benefits of pearl powder in skincare and cosmetics | W3LL PEOPLE

Hold on to your makeup bag, natural beauties, because we’ve got some exciting news! W3LL PEOPLE is infusing luxurious Freshwater Pearl into our cosmetics to boost radiance and collagen production!

Crushed Freshwater Pearl Powder can now be found in our supercharged Altruist Foundation Powder, Narcissist Foundation SticksRealist Setting Powder, Bio Bronzer Powder and Bio Brightener Invisible Powder. This lustrous ingredient is sustainably sourced and is packed with age-defying benefits for your skin.

Pearls have been prized for centuries as adornment, but did you know they have also been valued for their ability to condition and perfect the complexion? Precious Pearl Powder is nutrient dense and has been used for thousands of years in facial treatments across cultures in Egypt, China and Japan (the Geisha have long cherished pearl powder as one of their best kept beauty secrets).

All that sounds great, but is there any science to back up the ‘power of the pearl’? The answer is definitely yes! Pearls are a potent antioxidant that help restore your body’s super-critical enzymes and reduce peroxidation. Pearls also contain polysacchariddes, 17 amino acids, more than 30 trace minerals and vital proteins which help stimulate the body’s regeneration of collagen (which is what keeps your skin looking youthful). The science behind pearls is exactly why this natural wonder is now a key ingredient in our makeup collection.

If you loved our cosmetics before, you’re going to be stunned by these remixed and remastered formulas. Our pearl-packed makeup will improve your natural radiance and offer more therapeutic skin benefits than ever before. You’ll find them to be creamier, with beautiful satin finishes that leave your skin hydrated and glowing. Our favorite facet of pearl powder is it’s ability to create a subtle, soft focus effect that blurs lines and diminishes imperfections, naturally.

Do you believe in the power of the pearl? Try one of our newly improved products and see the results for yourself! Shop W3LLPEOPLE.com then share your experiences and reviews with us on Instagram @W3LLPEOPLE and using #BEW3LL.

Beauty starts from within, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the importance of health from the inside, out. Our Austin team is blessed to be neighbors with Juice Society.

Glowing skin is always in. Having skin that not only looks healthy but is healthy is largely dependent on a dependable, effective skincare routine. We are longtime fans of Osmia Organics. Just like your favorite W3LL PEOPLE cosmetics, all of Osmia’s products are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, and synthetic color or fragrance. We love the gentle cleansing (and natural, clean smell) of their Rose Clay Facial Soap, a must have for any eco-beauty bag.  The kaolin clay in this cleanser instantly hydrates and helps heal the skin. At night, follow it with their Active Gel Toner, and then layer the Restore Facial Serum over the top. In the morning, start the day right with a light layer of their Purely Simple Face Cream before our nontoxic beauty products.

Now that you’re radiating health from the inside out, it’s time to enhance your natural beauty using a few of our supercharged, plant-based cosmetics! The full line is EWG verified, so you can feel confident your making a truly qualified choice.

Start with a good foundation. Don’t be shy, when it comes to making the switch to safer beauty, foundation is one of the most important steps, but often one that women hesitate to make. We all have our favorite foundations and switching to something new can be difficult. Not only do you need to find a formula that works for you, but also the perfect shade. We’ve created our Foundation Selector to help make the process easy. Foundation is a product that most people apply to their entire face so finding a product that is healthy, nontoxic and also treats your skin with botanical ingredients is key. Our Altruist Foundation Powder has been re-formulated to treat your skin while you wear it, with an combination of green tea, freshwater pearl powder and aloe. Plus, a dose of zinc helps protect your precious skin from environmental damages. If you’re a cream foundation loyalist, try the Narcissist Foundation Stick. Packed with nourishing plant based botanicals, our new breakthrough formula delivers a weightless, satin, soft-focus finish while balancing skin tone and diminishing imperfections.

Take your foundation up a notch by adding an effortless contour using our Natural Highlight + Contour Duo. Sweep the cream bronzer under your cheekbones, jawline and along the sides of your nose to instantly shape and add sun-kissed color (see our tutorial on Nontouring for even more tips). Next, get your glow on by adding a pop of luminous shine using our cream Brightener. Apply it to the very center of your cheeks, your orbital bones, or even above the arch of your brows for a radiant glow! If you’d like to add an additional pop of color we recommend our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick (pictured here in Nude Peach) to add a pop of color to the apples of your cheeks.

We know our skin absorbs the products we put on it, but don’t forget about the products you put near your precious eyes (those are important!) or on your lips (which usually end up being consumed). Perfecting a clean eye look is easy with our Expressionist Liquid Eyeliner, and award-winning Expressionist Mascara. This dream team provides you with the long-lasting performance you expect, the lush lashes you desire, and an ingredient list that is free of coal tar or skin aging adhesives. Finish your nontoxic, cruelty-free beauty beauty routine with a quick swipe of our Nudist Colrobalm. The love child of a lip stick and a lip balm, The Nudist gives lips a subtle boost of color and shine plus penetrating, nourishing hydration. Rich in organic omega oils and aloe, this luxury lip treat leaves stressed lips soothed, supple and protected!
