Winter Makeup Essential: Mystikol Eyeliners

winter makeup collection, mystikol cream to powder eyeliner

We know, “next beauty must-have” is a bold claim, but Mystikol eyeliners are our latest obsession. Below are five reasons to lust over this winter makeup essential:

  1. Mystikol eyeliners are available in four long-wearing, intense shades: Onyx (jet black), Dark Topaz (metallic chocolate brown), Amethyst (royal purple) and Smoky Quartz (smoky grey).
  2. Two words— water resistant. With these eyeliners, you don’t have to worry about smears.
  3. The brush is built into the cap. Let me repeat that… THE BRUSH IS BUILT INTO THE CAP! This handy feature makes it a total breeze to create the perfect rich line at home or on-the-go.
  4. Coco glycerides in the formula help it go on smooth across your lids and lash line.
  5. Last, but certainly not least, Mystikol eyeliners have the staying power of a liquid, but are completely blendable like a powder or pencil. Check out how to transform your eyeliner look from clean to smudged to smokey in seconds:

But , wait…there’s more!

When sporting a sultry, smokey eye, we suggest keeping the rest of your look clean and natural. With our Pure & Simple Kits, it’s never been easier to do so. This all-inclusive palette contains two shades of PurePressed Base, two shades of PurePressed Eye Shadow, one PurePressed Blush and a Just Kissed Cheek and Lip Stain. What else does a girl need for an effortless no-makeup makeup look?

This winter’s makeup trends are all about bold, sophistication. They take one facial feature and emphasize it to the max. From blue eye shadow to sultry plum lips, these looks will help your unique personality shine through.

fall_beauty_trends_blogcarouselimage
From gothic lips, to dewy skin and glitter-dusted eyelids, fall’s biggest beauty trends begin with the ultimate base: flawless, glowing skin. To perfect these on-trend looks, prep your skin with some of your favorite Éminence products.

GOTHIC LIPS
With deep plums, rich reds and vampy blacks gracing the New York Fashion Week runway, this season’s lipstick trend is to “go bold or go home” (InStyle). For a picture-perfect pout that won’t dry out by day’s (or night’s) end, prep your pucker with our Lip Trio KitAn Alicia Keys favorite, this three-step treatment exfoliates, plumps and hydrates lips for a silky smooth, lipstick-ready finish.

DEWY SKIN
We love this season’s luminous, barely-there makeup. To give skin a dewy glow, Gucci Westman – the makeup artist behind runway looks for Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta and Rag and Bone – preps models’ skin with our Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream and Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist. Parisian makeup artist Bruno Segni swears by our Tinted Moisturizers to deliver a sheer, natural finish and lit-from-within glow.

GLITTER-DUSTED EYELIDS

This fall, swap your go-to matte eyeshadow for a dash of sparkle. Celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass suggests modifying the bold catwalk look by applying a softer, subtle shimmer to your lids: “Keep the summer celebrations alive with a bit of glitter layered over black eyeliner or applied just to the bottom lash line for a hint of sparkle” (Byrdie). For an eye-popping look, first apply our Wild Plum Eye Cream to reduce dark circles and brighten the eye area.

Fresh is best. Just as you nourish your body with fruits and vegetables at their peak freshness, you want to keep your complexion flawless with skin care products in their best condition. After all, keeping your moisturizers and masques untainted is essential for the most effective skin care. Here are five easy tips for keeping your skin care products pure and potent:

1. Use a spatula: Your hands are dirty, it’s a fact. With every Éminence masque and moisturizer, you will find a small plastic spatula. Using this added tool will help keep your products free from any germs clinging to your hands! It’s easy to use and great for measuring how much product you need.

2. When using one of our best sellers like the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, keep the bottle away from water. If water seeps in through the opening, the product could cake and mold and you definitely don’t want that to happen! If you must keep it in the shower for a morning scrub, ensure you keep the bottle well away from excess water spillage.

3. Wash your brushes: This may seem like a no brainer for most but the lack of convenience and time for cleaning means that many brushes go dirty. With our easy-to-use Natural Brush Cleanser, save time with a couple of spritzes on a paper towel and wipe your makeup brushes down. This will help keep your products AND brushes clean.

4. Keep containers closed: Even if you’re in a rush to get to work in the mornings or to bed at night – stop for a minute and remember to close the lid on your containers! Not only will your products stay clean, they will keep fresh for longer. Depending on the product, it could dry out and harden when left open. Just look at what happens when you forget to put the top back on your toothpaste!

5. Generally speaking, keep your products in a dark, dry place. Naturally, we store our skin care products in the washroom which is fine but if you can go a step further and also keep them in a drawer or medicine cabinet, your products will thank you for it.

Fun tip: Some products like the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque, are great to store in the refrigerator. The cold environment keeps the masque fresh and also adds a cooling sensation!

DIY: Lip Gloss

lipglossblog
Commercial lip gloss can contain artificial colors and fragrances which can be toxic to your health. Take the worry out of your lip gloss by making your own! These lip gloss sticks are easy and fun to make and can be customized with your favorite color and essential oils.

 

Ingredients:
1 gram white beeswax
3 grams Shea butter (or virgin coconut oil)
2 grams jojoba oil (or grape seed, Fractionated Coconut, or almond oil)
10 grams castor oil
1 gram vitamin E
7 drops of your favorite essential oil
Pigment, such as organic beet root powder or mineral makeup

 

Note: this is enough to fill two standard lip gloss tubes. You can find empty lip gloss tubes online and at local beauty stores.

 

Directions:
  1. Place all ingredients, except for essential oil, into a glass jar.
  2. Place jar in a saucepan with 1-1.5 inches of boiling water.
  3. Once melted, remove and let cool for 2 minutes.
  4. Add essential oils.

Note:

Start with a little and add more until you get desired color.

For color, add pigment and stir until combined.

Using a dropper, transfer into the lip gloss containers. If it starts to get too thick, place glass jar back in warm water to melt.

You’re done! Enjoy your moisturizing and natural lip gloss!

When you’re heading to the shore, it’s important to have makeup that is versatile and fits in beach bag. You want to look natural, as if you aren’t wearing any makeup, but still feel confident that you look your best. For an effortless no makeup, makeup look, all you need is five products, a couple of brushes/tools and your fingers:

Peaches-Cream-1-232x300
Mineral Foundation
(Alternate Uses: Concealer and SPF)
Great mineral foundations, like our PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, can be used as both a foundation and a concealer. It also contains broad spectrum SPF to protect you from harmful UV rays and is water resistant for up to 40 minutes!

Peach Eye Shadow & Cream Eye Shadow
(Alternate Uses: Highlighter, Blush and Lip Color)
Select a peach and a cream eye shadow with a little shimmer (we suggest our PurePressed Eye Shadow in Peach Sherbet and Cream). You can use the two colors in multiple ways; in addition to adding color to your eye lids, they quadruple as a highlighter, blush and lip color!.

Pencil Eyeliner
(Alternate Use: Brow Pencil)
A natural brown eyeliner, like our Basic Brown Eye Pencil, is great for lining your eyes, but if you’re a brunette, you could also get away with using it as an eyebrow pencil. If you have lighter hair, we recommend using a lighter colored eyeliner, like taupe.

 Lip Balm
(Alternate Use: SPF)
Lip Balm is the best finishing touch to any look. It moisturizes your lips for a supple pout, and if you use our LipDrink Lip Balm with SPF 15, you also get the added bonus of sun protection!

Follow the below steps to learn how to get the perfect, natural beach makeup look in 10 easy steps:

Peaches-Cream-2-242x300

  1. First, use your Retractable Handi Brush to apply your foundation.
  2. Then, use a Flocked Sponge to layer foundation over any areas that may need a little extra concealing.
  3. Using your ring finger apply the cream eye shadow to the lid of your eye and as a highlighter on your brow bone.
  4. Next, use your finger again to apply the peach shade to the outer corners of your eyes and into the crease.
  5. Starting from the inner corner of your eye and working your way out to a slight wing, line your upper lash line with your Brown Eye Pencil.
  6. Also, use the eye pencil to define your brows by filling in your eyebrows using small, hair-like strokes.
  7. With your index and middle finger, lightly swipe the cream eye shadow on your cheek bone as a highlighter.
  8. Then, with the same two fingers, apply the peach shade to the apples of your cheek with light strokes.
  9. Dab the peach shade onto your lips using your middle finger for a soft pop of color.
  10. Finish your look with a swipe of lip balm on your lips.

rosehip

What’s on your summertime hit list this year? Relaxing beach days, check. Fierce hiking trails, check. Loads of swimming, check. Unfortunately, the very outdoor activities that make your summer amazing (and you healthy!), also ravage your skin throughout the season. Salt water dries the skin, UV rays attack your face and body, and the wind chaps your complexion. You better be ready for summer – because this season truly makes your face, body – even your hair – a complete wreck.

Introducing our new Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm – your new weapon in the fight against the elements and a part of our Repair & Protect Collection. This all-season “miracle” balm has a buttery texture that sinks moisture deep into the skin. Ultra-rich, the cream relieves all the essential spots that are especially rough and dry from environmental exposure this summer. Soothe your skin and let this super balm repair your dry complexion.

Need some inspiration for using this miracle product? These are the top 6 spots on your body that can be treated by the Repair Balm:

balm_blogvertical

1. POST-SUN DRY SKIN
Enjoyed a little too much sun? Soothe your dry, after-sun skin at the end of the day.
2. DULL HAIR ENDS
Not just for skin, we find that the Repair Balm also moisturizes dry hair ends.
3. RAGGED, DRY CUTICLES
We may not be able to save the cute manicure destroyed by the beach but the Repair Balm fully restores dry cuticles.
4. ROUGH ELBOWS
Spot treatment with the Repair Balm beautifies those rough, dry elbows – just in time for your arm-baring summer wardrobe.
5. DRY KNEES
Show off sleek, polished legs. Soften dry knees by rubbing in a layer of the Repair Balm regularly throughout the summer.
6. DRY, FLAKY HEELS
Don’t let your summer sandals reveal dry, flaky heels! Pretty up your feet by applying a generous dab of Repair Balm.

Where do you need to use the Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm this summer? Let us know in the comments below.
