Summer Foundation: how to have flawless skin all summer long using vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free products from W3LL PEOPLE

Summer officially arrived on June 20th, but I think many of us have been “feeling the heat” the past couple weeks!  Whether you’re a sun worshiper or shade seeker, we’ve solved the summertime sadness that can happen with your foundation. Between the heat, sun, water, sand and increased physical activity during the warm summer months, we encounter a new host of skin issues and concerns, and along with that come foundation woes. Is it clogging your pores? Does it feel heavy on your skin? Does it melt off the second you step outside? Are you using the right shade after that weekend at the beach?

If any of those sound like you, then listen up! W3LL PEOPLE‘s luxe all-natural makeup formulas are breathable with active skincare benefits perfect for solving any summer skin issues. We promise that you will love our foundations and that our collection contains the perfect summertime solution for you. We’ve designed our products to have a weightless texture and formulated them with premium quality ingredients, such as pure zinc oxide to help protect your face from UV and UVB rays. The key to foundation in the summer is picking a summer-friendly formula that’s right for you, and learning how to apply it correctly. W3LL PEOPLE co-founder and green beauty guru Shirley Pinkson shares her tips for getting a natural, summery look—and the coverage you need—without feeling weighed down.

Find Your Foundation

Our collection of good-for-you cosmetics offers three super-powered options when it comes to foundation. Our newest product, Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer, is the ultimate all-natural makeup + skincare hybrid! This hydrating cream formula evens out skin-tone, offers a radiant, dewy finish, and protects your skin with SPF 30. Bio Tint is loaded with goodness: organic coconut to hydrate, broccoli seed oil for a flawless application that smooths and brightens, organic pomegranate to rejuvenate, and a state-of-the-art algae extract to combat hyper-pigmentation!

Altruist Foundation Powder has long been one of our staple products. However, this spring our fan-favorite Altruist underwent a makeover to make the formula even better! This reinvented mineral powder calms your skin with aloe and chamomile, and uses the ancient power of freshwater pearl powder to create a finish that is dewy and hydrated, never dry or chalky. The addition of non-miconized zinc oxide allows Altruist Foundation Powder to protect your skin from environmental damage.

If your skin tends to be dry, or you really appreciate makeup that lets you glow, we recommend our Narcissist Foundation Stick. This miracle formula is based on premium organic, omega rich sunflower seed oil known for it’s nourishing and healing properties. Although it’s a “cream”, it blends and breathes with skin seamlessly–even in the heat of summer. Just be sure to amp up your Bio Brightener Invisible Powder to help set the foundation while also adding a luminous highlight.

Get Sun-Kissed with Bio Bronzer

Our Bio Bronzer Stick or Bio Bronzer Powder will become powerful tools in your makeup arsenal, whether you like a sun-kissed glow, or are a fervent SPF-applier! Bronzer can be used to fake a golden glow, and can also be used to slightly alter the appearance of your go-to foundation, so that it can work for you throughout the summer.

Start by deciding which product is right for you. Our Bio Bronzer Powder is great if you have oily skin, or tend to feel like your makeup moves around or disappears after several hours of wear. Our Bio Bronzer Stick offers the same flawless bronze glow (not too orange, not too glittery) in a cream formula that is perfect for achieving a dewy finish, and for helping those with dry skin infuse it with both color and hydration!

To “faux the glow”, simply swipe your Bio Bronzer of choice anywhere on your face where the sun would naturally hit it. Your approach should be slightly different from your contouring routine, since you aren’t trying to shape or slip the face, but are simply trying to create the illusion of having spent the day outside. We recommend applying Bio Bronzer to the the crown of your head near the hairline, lightly along your nose and underneath the apex of your cheek bone. Blend the bronzer out accordingly to create a natural-looking summertime glow.

If you did get a weekend out in the sunshine (lucky you!) and you wake up Monday feeling like your go-to foundation shade is looking just slightly chalky on your skin, don’t fret! Bio Bronzer can again come to the rescue to help adjust your foundation by 1-2 shades. Simply mix a small amount of Bio Bronzer Powder into your powder foundation to help darken the shade and add a natural golden undertone. Or, try layering our Bio Bronzer Stick lightly over your favorite cream foundation to help infuse color back into the skin. If you are very fair skinned you might want to try this trick with our Bio Bronzer Powder combined 50/50 with a translucent powder, such as our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder.

Use the Right Tools for Coverage

Sticky, sweaty fingers are not the ideal foundation applicators for obvious reasons. Instead, after moisturizing or priming skin, use the W3LL PEOPLE Foundation Brush to apply the Narcissist Foundation Stick. Blend the creamy formula into your skin to conceal blemishes, reduce redness, and even tone, and tap the brush under your eyes to minimize dark circles. To apply our Altruist Foundation Powder try our Kabuki Brush.

Get a Sheer, Luminous Finish

To create that healthy, radiant look, dust on a layer of our must-have Bio Brightener Invisible Powder with the Kabuki Brush. This weightless clear powder is packed with delicious organic and natural actives like crushed fresh water pearl. Yeah, its amazing. And if we still haven’t convinced you that foundation is indeed a fit for summer, the Bio Brightener Invisible Powder can be your hero! Used by itself it acts like a clear foundation. It will minimize pores, even skin tone and create an age-defying soft focus effect. Bonus: it helps manage excess oil and shine while creating a gorgeous, youthful glow on the skin. Be sure to lightly spritz the complexion one final time to complete your gorgeousness. That final spritz will help blend, even and set our gorgeously good for you makeup.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Healthy Makeup Swap: Our Nudist Colorbalms

Healthy Makeup Swap: trade in your Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint for W3LL PEOPLE's Nudist Colorbalm, infused with jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, carrot seed oil, chamomile and aloe.

Did you know that the average woman consumes between 4-7 pounds of lip products over the course of her lifetime? The average application is around .06 grams, and unless you wipe it off onto a napkin that product either ends up absorbed through your skin, or consumed as you eat that sandwich or inadvertently lick your lips throughout the day. The lesson: what we put on our skin (no matter what the product is) ends up in our system. We need to make sure all the products we use are healthy and safe.

Meet our Nudist Colorbalms, which make one helluva healthy replacement for all of your toxic lip products. Conventional lipsticks often contain lead, arsenic and mercury (yuck!).  Our Nudist Colorbalm is a true 3-in-1 multi-action product. They moisturize like a balm, add color like a stain, and treat lips throughout the day or night like your favorite lip mask.

Nudist Colorbalms are the love child of a lipstick and a lipbalm. They are designed to look phenomenal with a hint of color ranging from clear to deep berry and also to provide penetrating hydration. These gorgeous little beauty balms contain 70% organic content, are EWG verified as well as USA Organic Certified. Check the ingredient label and you’ll find plant-based power from jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, red raspberry seed oil, carrot seed oil, chamomile and aloe. What you won’t find are any of the crappy fillers, harsh chemicals or parabens. This luxury lip treat leaves your stressed lips soothed, supple and protected.  Clothing is optional.

Get your Nudist Colorbalm today and share a photo with us on Instagram by tagging @W3LLPEOPLE and #BEW3LL.
