Prom Makeup Tips From Eminence Organics

Prom season is here, and if you’re scrambling for the best prom makeup ideas for yourself or someone you know, you’re not alone.  Whether you’re after a glamorous or more natural makeup look for prom, the key to pretty makeup is gorgeous, glowing skin. Here are a few Eminence Organics beauty tips to help you get ready for prom night.

PREP YOUR SKIN WITH A FACE MASK

For prom makeup that lasts all night, you can’t skimp on skin care – and the best way to achieve long lasting results is to give your makeup a brilliant base. To achieve a gorgeous glow, we recommend ditching your redness-inducing DIY face mask and prepping your skin with a natural, organic Eminence Organics mask.

Rising runway star and high-schooler Delilah Hamlin (pictured left) tells ELLE that multi-masking is one of her secrets to glowing skin: “Literally, everyone knows that if they’re going to FaceTime me at night, I’ll have a mask on. My favorite brand is Eminence Organics.” Delilah’s favorites include Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Masque and Strawberry Rhubarb Masque. With career cues taken from the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, it’s no surprise this stunning model is on the rise – and we’re thrilled that Eminence Organics is part of her skin care routine!

PERFECT A NATURAL PROM MAKEUP LOOK

The key to perfecting natural prom makeup is to use natural cosmetics. If you’re after sheer coverage and a natural finish, we recommend applying Eminence Organics Vanilla Latte Tinted Moisturizer (also available in Caramel Latte). This lightweight formula softens and protects skin for a smooth and bright complexion, without the aftermath of a pore-clogging foundation.

For long-wearing coverage and a silky matte finish, set your base with Sun Defense Minerals (available in six shades). Tip: apply a shade darker than your complexion to the top of your forehead, down your cheekbones and along your jawline for a sunkissed look.

Give your lips maximum hydration with the award-winning Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm. If a plump, glossy look is more your style, try Eminence Organics Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper. This Vogue favorite contains invigorating cinnamon oil and hydrating jojoba oil for a naturally plumped pucker.

DON’T FORGET THE ESSENTIALS

Before running out the door, toss Eminence Organics Green Tea & Hemp Blotting Tissues into your clutch. These ultra fine tissue paper sheets absorb excess oils and moisture on the face to keep your complexion perfectly matte all evening long.

MAINTAIN YOUR YOUTHFUL GLOW

Stay forever young and take preventative action against the early signs of aging. Care for your complexion past prom night with the Eminence Organics Youth Shield Collection, including Eminence Organics Red Currant Exfoliating Cleanser, Red Currant Mattifying Mist, Red Currant Balancing Concentrate, Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque and Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF 30. This collection protects and hydrates your skin’s appearance to prevent the visible signs of aging – before they begin.

Get Prom Perfect Skin!

The weather is warming up and prom season is just around the corner!  For a rundown on how to get that “prom perfect” skin, Teen Vogue consulted A-List facialist Joanna Vargas. According to Vargas, if you want “a pristine complexion, you’ll need to plan accordingly!” because “good skin doesn’t happen overnight”. Here’s a couple of great suggestions from Joanna on how to prep your skin for prom.

Four weeks before:

This is the time you should start to be “more diligent with your beauty routine”. “It’s important to be exfoliating at least twice week” Vargus says. Her favorite scrub for teens is our Citrus Exfoliating Face Wash.

One Week Before:  

“This is the perfect time for a full body exfoliation to really get glowing”. She recommends our Coconut Sugar Scrub.

Even if prom isn’t your thing – it’s important to remember that a good skincare routine is vital for a healthy, glowing complexion. In the words of Joanna Vargas – “your skin is a reflection of both your mental and physical health as well as the products that you’re putting on and taking off of it on a daily basis”. Now that’s great skin advice!

How To Exfoliate: Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant Vs. Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™

With countless fans who are celebrities, make-up artists and beauty editors, our award-winning Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant has quickly become a cult classic. If this coveted exfoliant is already part of your beauty arsenal, our new Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ will take your skin care routine to the next level. But don’t swap out your beloved Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant just yet. Here’s why this classic favorite and popular newcomer are better together.

LARGE VS. SMALL PARTICLES

If you’re after the smoothing action of a physical exfoliant, the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is probably one of your go-to products. The particles in this best seller gently slough dead cells from the skin’s surface, for a perfectly buffed complexion. The particles in the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ are finer, giving them the ability to zero in on hard to reach spots and reveal a clean and refreshed complexion.

POWDER-TO-PASTE VS. POWDER-TO-FOAM

Adding water to the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant creates a creamy paste that gently exfoliates to smooth your skin’s texture. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant is a powder-to-foam product that generates a light, fizzing action to release oxygen onto your skin’s surface, invigorating your complexion and bringing it back to life.

POLISHING VS. DEEP CLEANING

The Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant cares for the surface of your skin, sloughing away dead cells and buffing its texture for a smooth, flawless looking finish. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ is your anti pollution solution – it de-gunks clogged pores by softening impurities that have accumulated throughout the day and harnesses the power of potent microgreens to protect against the aging effects of environmental stressors.

HOW TO USE THEM TOGETHER

To experience the benefits of both exfoliants, we recommend using the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant in the morning to smooth and prep your skin and the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ at night to remove dirt and grime that collects during the day.

5 Spring Color Trends to Try by Jane Iredale

We could name a thousand things we love about beauty, but one of our favorite things are the trends. In fashion, we often feel like the best trend is no trend at all, but in beauty, experimentation is part of the fun. Sometimes, trying new trends is less about purchasing the newest product formula and more about trying new color combinations. So, let’s talk about five of the coolest color trends for spring 2017.

Spring 2017 Beauty Color Trends

Color Trend #1: Brown

spring 2017 color trends, brown lipstick

How to Wear It: On your lips! It may sound very 90s, but brown lips are back and it looks amazing on every single skin tone. From chocolate to pinky nudes, brown is every where you turn. Our trick to wearing this trend without going overboard is to choose a shade that is slightly darker than your natural lip color.

Try this: Lisa PureMoist Lipstick; add a subtle pink to the lipstick by layering Pink Lip Pencil or Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain underneath it.

Color Trend #2: Peach

spring 2017 color trends, monochromatic peach makeup

How to Wear It: Peach is one of our favorite colors for spring because you can wear it all over your face in both matte and shimmery textures. If you want to try this monochromatic look, we recommend creating a subtle gradient peach eye makeup look and then keep your cheeks and lips natural with just a hint of color.

Try this: Peaches & Cream Bronzer; mix and match the four peachy shades to create different eye makeup and blush looks.

Color Trend #3: Mauve

How to Wear It:  We like to give our complexion and overall glowy effect by creating a smokey mauve eye makeup look. Create this simple look by applying a light mauve shade to the lid, then adding drama with a darker wine tone or even a deep brown. You can also use a mauve nail polish for the perfect transitional manicure for spring.

Try this: Soft Kiss PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple; this eye shadow trio has all the necessary shades required to create the perfect mauve smokey eye look.

Color Trend #4: Blue

How to Wear It: We’ve said it before, but blue eye makeup is the IT trend this spring, and we promise it can be chic and completely work appropriate. Our favorite way to add a little blue to our look is to line our bottom lash line with blue eyeliner.

Try this: Midnight Blue Eye Pencil; read this blog post to find out how real women wear blue eye makeup.

Color Trend #5: Pink

spring 2017 color trends, draping, blush explosion

How to Wear It: Can you say blush explosion? No, we aren’t talking about the woeful moment when you accidentally drop your blush while multi-tasking in the morning. This is a playful way of describing our favorite spring trend, draping. What is draping? It’s a technique that uses blush instead of bronzer to contour.

Try this: Susan PureMoist Lipstick and Pink Quartz PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple; go all out by pairing your rosy cheeks with a touch of pink to the eye and lips.

DIY: Foot Mask with Bergamot Essential Oil

You don’t have to stress about cracked heels on your feet this spring. Try this nourishing foot mask made with Bergamot essential oil (and other feet-friendly ingredients) for nourished and beautiful feet.

Why use a foot mask? Since our feet have the most pores per square inch than any other area of the body, it is important to remember to treat the feet too! What you put on the feet will absorb into the rest of the body, so do your best to gather high quality, organic ingredients for this foot mask.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup organic Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons organic raw honey

2 splashes doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil

1 stalk organic celery

6 drops Bergamot essential oil

Notes about ingredients used:

  • The probiotics in Greek yogurt help deliver beneficial proteins and the lactic acid it contains rids the surface of old cells, making way for radiant, fresh skin.
  • Celery is rich in zinc, which helps to repair dry, cracked skin. Celery also carries vitamins and is cleansing and detoxifying.
  • Raw honey is a natural humectant, contains beneficial enzymes and antioxidants, and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Bergamot essential oil is calming and soothing to the skin.

Directions:

  1. Grate stalk of celery and drain excess moisture in strainer or with paper towel.
  2. Add celery and remaining ingredients to food processor or blender.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Ready a wet washcloth or sit by tub.
  5. Apply mask immediately to entire foot with fingers or brush.
  6. Let sit 15–20 minutes while enjoying mask’s cooling sensation and the calming effects of Bergamot essential oil.
  7. Rinse off and enjoy your nourished and moisturized feet.
