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.

Summer Skin Essentials

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.

W3LL PEOPLE Altruist Foundation Powder Re-Imagined

altruisthero_3

altruisthero_3
They say good things take time. They also say if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, we’ve never really been the type to follow the rules.
Altruist Foundation Powder was among the first products we offered when we launched in 2013. Perfecting a safe, nontoxic mineral foundation powder full of good-for-you ingredients was one of our top priorities when founding W3LL PEOPLE, and we nailed it with Altruist. Our fans seemed to agree, making our Altruist Foundation Powder a cult-favorite in the green beauty community. Our inbox was filled with testimonials about how it had improved their skin and changed their life, and we never looked back.
In our tireless effort to leverage new trends and innovations, we recently remastered the Altruist with the goal of further improving it’s performance, benefits and utility.
Today we introduce you to a re-imagined Altruist Foundation Powder: she’s still the nontoxic mineral foundation you know and love, filled with the nourishing and rejuvenating properties of organic aloe, chamomile and green tea,  but with the added benefit of environmental protection from pure zinc. And, like our newly reformulated Bio Brightener Invisible Powder, Altruist now features the radiant, anti-aging benefits of luxurious, crushed freshwater pearl, making our already creamy foundation powder even more weightless, with an elegant finish that is dewy, not dry or chalky.
We also upgraded the packaging with a sexy new look AND a locking sifter seal to make the loose foundation powder travel-friendly and mess-proof for the natural beauty on the go.

If you’ve been a long-time fan of Altruist, we feel confident saying that you are going to absolutely love the healthy skin benefits in the remastered formula!  It is quite simply the finest loose foundation on the market for achieving ultimate, natural looking coverage that feels creamy soft on the skin–without creasing or gathering.

Nontouring with our NEW Natural Contour & Highlight Duo

How to Master Nontouring using Natural, Vegan, Cruelty-Free Products from W3LL PEOPLE!

Dear Face: meet nontouring. Just when you thought the millionth YouTube tutorial attempt was going to help you master your contouring, the beauty world says “Move over!” and introduces you to Nontouring. Nontouring is the love-child of contouring and strobing, and is meant to produce slimming definition that is countered with a soft, lit-from-within glow. Thankfully this trend arrives just as we pull back the curtain on our newest, innovative creation: The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo.

Our The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo has two amazing products in one easy-to-use palette that is sure to make you a Nontouring pro in no time. Our green beauty master makeup artist, Shirley Pinkson, thinks of Nontouring as “instantly faking a facial”. The key is to contour with a cream bronzer that is a natural shade of matte brown, instead of too orange or fake, and then keep skin vibrant, dewy and radiant with a combination of tinted moisturizer and highlighter.

Nontouring using our natural, vegan, cruelty-free, nontoxic cosmetics is as simple as knowing how to swipe! All of our cream cosmetics are formulated with a powerful blend of coconut oil, organic aloe and chamomile. Our hydrating formula leaves your skin dewy while infusing it with nourishing, botanical ingredients that help treat and improve your skin’s appearance while you wear it. This new product is our solution to the over-done, too orange, not-at-all-natural bronzers and contouring kits. The The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo helps give your face a hint of color, helps you ad subtle definition where you want it, and most importantly it keeps your skin looking fresh, dewy and entirely natural.

To get your Nontour on, start by evening out your skin-tone using our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer with SPF 30. A tip from Shirley: apply Bio Tint using the pads of your fingers to gently blend into skin. Bio Tint Multi Action Moisturizer with SPF 30 is infused with broccoli seed oil, which allows it to spread evenly and absorb effortlessly into skin, but also prevents creasing while supplying your skin with a healthy dose of vitamin K.

Next, add some depth to your complexion using our Bio Bronzer Cream, included in the The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo. Apply and blend using your fingertips or our Flat Foundation Brush. Avoid using bronzer to define your nose or chisel your cheekbones, and instead focus on areas that would naturally be kissed by the sun — a touch of color on the top of your nose or center of your forehead is enough to help create the ethereal glow that Nontouring is known for.

How to Master Nontouring using Natural, Vegan, Cruelty-Free Products from W3LL PEOPLE!

The last step is the key to mastering your Nontour! We recommend using a cream highlighter that like our award-winning Bio Brightener Cream. Simply finish your look by highlighting the areas of your face where light would naturally hit it — just under your brow bone, down the bridge of your nose, on the cupids bow of your lips, and if you’re feeling adventurous, highlighter on the center of the forehead or just above the arch of the brow can also create a beautiful effect.

So, there it is, a brief introduction and tutorial on Nontouring using our new Natural Contour and Highlight Duo! Plan on giving it a go? We want to see! Share a photo of your look with us on Instagram by tagging @W3LLPEOPLE and #BEW3LL.
