3 Fall Beauty Trends to Wear this Season

This fall is all about celebrating your natural beauty in the most glamorous ways possible. There are a lot of fun fall beauty trends to try this year, but if we had to choose one, it would be “the one-feature rule.” What’s the one-feature rule? It’s when you pick one aspect of your face that you love, and create a look that brings all the focus to that area.

The trend is simple to follow, and with our Naturally Glam collection, we have everything you need to practice it all season long. If you want some inspiration, here are three makeup looks inspired by fall 2017 runway shows. Make sure to watch the videos to see how to achieve each one.

The Naturally Glam Look

This is our favorite look for fall, and we wish we could wear it every day. We all know how useful it is to have an eye shadow palette full of your favorite natural shades. This fall, we took that concept and added some dazzle to create the Naturally Glam Eye Shadow Kit.

With these five, high-performance shades, you can glam up your no-makeup makeup look like a pro!

The Ombré “Popsicle” Pout

Do you remember the way your lips would stain when eating a popsicle? That is the exact ombré look seen all over the fall runways. It may even be one of the biggest beauty trends of 2017. Luckily, you don’t have to risk brainfreeze to get an ombré lip. All you need is our Paris Just Kissed Lip Plumper, and a couple of our favorite pencils: Naughty PlayOn Lip Crayon and Berry Lip Pencil.

Since you’re playing up your lips in this look, keep your eye makeup simple with a touch of shimmery shadow. And add a rosy glow using Clearly Pink PurePressed Blush.
Look at Me Lips

Red lipstick is classic, so we won’t call it a beauty trend, but the makeup you pair with your bold lip can be as high-fashion as the other two looks. The trick to taking your red lipstick from everyday to right-off-the-runway is creating the illusion of a makeup-free face.

Wear barely-there eye shadow and add a hint of highlighter for a natural glow. To get the perfect apple red lips, try Gwen PureMoist Lipstick.

Practice Makes Perfect!

Whether you want to emphasize your eyes or let your lips do all of the talking, we want to see how you show-off your favorite feature! Share pictures with us on Instagram by tagging @janeiredale and #BeautyWithBriliance and @TheGreenSpa #GreenSpaCares.

The Eminence Organics Guide To Microgreens & Their Health Benefits

If you’ve heard the term “microgreens”, you may have wondered about these tiny trending plants. You’ve walked past their little bobbing heads at your supermarket, seen them piled up on plates at your local eatery, and they’re even showing up in the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection

What’s the big fuss about something so small? With Earth Day around the corner, we’re here to walk you through the microgreens phenomenon and help you find out more about these environmentally friendly plants and their health benefits in food and skin care.

WHAT ARE MICROGREENS?

Microgreens are exactly what they sound like: small and green! They are simply mini plants – like broccoli, radish or clover sprouts – that are harvested in their seedling stage before they reach maturity. Planet-friendly because they require few resources, microgreens are ready to go in 14 days or less. These cute little leaves are intensely flavored and add a zesty accent to salads, sandwiches and even soups.

MICROGREEN HEALTH BENEFITS

Besides adding flavor to your plate, microgreens deliver nutrients to your body. According to a study by the US Department of Agriculture, the leaves of almost all microgreens have “four to six times more nutrients than the mature leaves of the same plant.” As USDA researcher Dr. Gene Lester points out, “All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, and fighting cancer and have all sorts of benefits associated with them.”

EMINENCE ORGANICS MICROGREENS DETOX COLLECTION


While eating microgreens provides potent nutritional benefits, using microgreens in your skin care products further enhances those healthy effects.

The new Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection harnesses the powerful actions of these leafy ingredients to cleanse and protect the skin from drying environmental stressors with these three products:
1. The Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil restores balance and removes impurities.
2. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant brightens and invigorates through exfoliation.
3. The Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment revitalizes and detoxifies dry skin with a lightweight gel cream.

Together, this capsule collection uses microgreens and ingredients like stonecrop to target the drying effects of pollution on the skin. Find out where you can buy the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection at your nearest Eminence spa.

MICROGREENS, ROASTED BEETS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD RECIPE


To experience the natural potency of microgreens both inside and out, you can introduce them in your diet as well as add them to your skin care routine. We love this recipe that tosses together tender microgreens with sweet roasted beets and the rich flavor of goat cheese:

INGREDIENTS:

Salad:
3-4 beets (we used golden beets)
⅓ cup goat cheese
2 cups microgreens

Dressing:
3 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 TB white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Wash beets thoroughly. Wrap each one individually in foil, place on baking sheet and roast for 45-60 minutes.
2. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Unwrap each beet and peel the skin which should slip away easily, then cube.
3. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss with microgreens gently.
4. Crumble goat cheese on microgreens and top with beets.

2 Eminence Organics Skin Care Routines You Need This Summer

 

With days growing longer and temperatures heating up, it’s time for a summer skin care overhaul. And changing up your skin care routine for the season calls for more than just slapping an extra layer of sunscreen on your face. A summer skin care revamp means rethinking your routine to protect yourself from different types of skin damage and seasonal dryness.

In order to help you, we’ve designed two daytime skin care routines – one essential and the other enhanced – from Eminence Organics products specially selected for the season. Read on to learn more about the Eminence Organics Skin Care Routines for Summer:

THE ESSENTIAL EMINENCE ORGANICS SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR SUMMER:

1. CLEANSE 
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Cleanser – Target dark spots from the summer sun with Eminence Organics Bright Skin Cleanser. Our two actives, Gigawhite™ and Natural Hydroquinone Alternative work to brighten the appearance of your skin while you cleanse.

To help prevent summer skin problems, use our Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser as an alternative cleanser.

2. TONE
Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist – Unlike drugstore toners, Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist doesn’t contain alcohol that dries the skin. Instead, this hydrating and softening spray restores moisture for a smooth and toned finish. A celebrity favorite, the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist has won over fans like Alanis Morissette who declares, “I never leave home without my hydrating mist.”

3. MOISTURIZE
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Moisturizer SPF 30 – One of our best-selling products, Eminence Organics Bright Skin Moisturizer not only hydrates the skin but also brightens with Gigawhite and Natural Hydroquinone Alternative. When you consider that the Bright Skin Moisturizer also contains a protective SPF that defends the skin from UVA / UVB / UVC rays, you’ll agree that you have the perfect summer moisturizer.

As an alternative SPF moisturizer to protect, hydrate and help reduce the visible signs of problem skin all summer long, use our Eminence Organics Red Currant Protective Moisturizer.

Although this essential summer skin routine covers everything you need, you can also add any of the following products to elevate your summer skin care experience.

THE ENHANCED EMINENCE ORGANICS SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR SUMMER:

EXFOLIATE
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel – This results-oriented peel solution reduces the look of uneven skin that can develop over the summer. Lactic and mandelic acids gently remove dead skin cells for a brighter looking complexion.

MASK & TREAT
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Masque – Continue treating your complexion with the VitaSkin Bright Skin Solution and Eminence Organics Bright Skin Masque. Winner of the Best Mask in The Fashion Spot Earth Day Beauty Awards 2015, the Bright Skin Masque evens out skin tone for a luminous and glowing complexion.

As an alternative face mask to improve the appearance of problem skin, use our 5-time award winning Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Masque.

PREVENT & CORRECT
Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum – A powerful re-hydrator for skin dehydrated by the summer season, Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum restores moisture so the skin appears plump and smooth. A favorite of Madonna, the Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum is a summer must-have for supple, silky skin.

Additionally, you can always prep your skin for a day in the sun with our award winning Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum, which reduces the appearance of the visible signs of aging. Just be sure to apply one of our SPF Sun Care products before heading outside.

EYE CARE
Eminence Organics Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream – Cool down for summer with the Eminence Organics Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream and its refreshing metal rollerball applicator. Like the cast in the popular 50 Shades of Grey and 50 Shades Darker movies, you’ll fall in love with this eye treatment that instantly lifts and tightens.

LIP CARE
Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 – One of the most overlooked body parts for sun care, the lips need just as much protection from sun damage. With our new Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm, a swipe of this protective lip treatment defends the vulnerable lip area from full-spectrum UV rays. Then, keep working on those luscious lips while you sleep by using the award winning Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm overnight.

COSMETICS
Eminence Organics Vanilla Latte Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25 – Soften and protect skin with this antioxidant-rich, non-clogging tinted moisturizer. Perfect your look with this lightweight sheer coverage and a natural mineral zinc finish for SPF 25 sun protection.

BODY CARE
Eminence Organics Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen SPF 32 – With your summer skin overhaul complete for your complexion, it’s time to turn to body care for the summer. Since sun protection is the first priority, Eminence Organics Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen is your most important product for long summer months. Moisturize and revitalize from head to toe with this sunscreen and protect your skin from UVA / UVB / UVC rays. To help your skin recover overnight, reduce the appearance of redness and rehydrate by using the Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator for Face & Body.

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.

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

spring 2017 color trends, mauve eye shadow

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

spring 2017 color trends, blue eye liner under eye

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.
