With fifteen GRAMMY wins under her belt, a recurring spot on TV’s hottest talent show and a trending #NoMakeup movement, Alicia Keys is at the top of her game. We were thrilled to discover Éminence is the key to keeping Alicia’s skin sparkling – and even more excited to hear she has added another one of our results-driven products to her coveted skin care routine.

When Alicia first revealed her fresh-faced complexion, we weren’t alone in clamoring for her skin care secrets. Into The Gloss, ELLE, W Magazine, PopSugar and SELF are just a few high profile publications that have featured the natural beauty’s favorite products. Most recently, Allure got the scoop on what Alicia’s makeup artist, Dotti, uses to give the star her radiant glow, saying “They make us soft. They make us glow. They promise beauty, and boy, do they deliver. But what our favorite products (or, in this case, Keys’) do best: They make us smile.”

After cleansing Alicia’s skin and applying a mask (our refining Clear Skin Probiotic Masque is one of The Voice judge’s favorites), Dotti applies our Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm to “up the dewiness of Keys’s skin” (Allure). This ultra-rich balm is infused with rosehip oil to improve the skin’s moisture, tone and texture, as well as lemongrass (a natural astringent) to minimize the appearance of pores, revealing a picture perfect complexion. To complete Alicia’s look, Dotti turns her attention to the star’s lip area, dabbing on a clear balm to keep her pucker perfectly moisturized. She tells Into The Gloss that our three-step Lip Trio Kit does wonders for Alicia’s lips, keeping them deeply hydrated and camera-ready.

Alicia says of embracing her barefaced complexion: “One thing I’ve heard more than ever is this glow that people refer to that I have. I kind of recognize that glow because I’ve begun to listen to myself inside. And I think there’s something really powerful that happens when you start to listen to yourself. It makes you feel more aware. In touch. More confident. …And that’s taken a little minute to arrive at that place. But there’s definitely something powerful about the way your inner feels that reflects on the outer, on your skin. That, to me, is real beauty.” We couldn’t agree more.

We are incredibly proud that Alicia uses Éminence to celebrate her natural beauty. Which Éminence products are part of your makeup-free routine? Tell us in the comments below.

Your wedding day beauty look may be the most important makeup of your life, and many brides don’t know where to start when searching for the right makeup artist. So, we turned to our team of Global Makeup Educators for help. Keep reading for their tips on what to ask, what to bring, and what things you should always remember.

6-12 Months before Your Wedding

Collect images of bridal makeup you love.

Pictures models and celebrities are often retouched, but they are to use as inspiration and will help guide your initial makeup artist interview.

Find three images of yourself that you absolutely love.

Bring these images with you, as well, and be sure to explain what you love about the pictures (e.g. I love how the eye shadow brings out the color of my eyes).

Schedule preliminary interviews with multiple makeup artists.

Show them the inspiration photos of models, celebrities and yourself, and ask the below questions:

  • How long have you been doing bridal makeup?
  • What do you love about doing bridal makeup?
  • Can I see your portfolio or images of makeup you’ve done? (Look at their images and ask yourself if this is how you want to look.)
  • How do you go about choosing your look for each bride?
  • What brands of makeup do you use? (Check a brand if you’re not familiar with it to make sure it’s something you want to use.)
  • Do you have a capability of doing my entire wedding party?
  • Do you do off-site weddings? If I hire you, will you stay all day? How much will this cost me?
  • Can I see your brushes? (If their brushes are gross, chances are your skin will be too.)

3-5 Months before Your Wedding

Schedule your bridal makeup test.

After you decide on a makeup artist, schedule your makeup test 3-5 months prior to your wedding. At the appointment, our educators recommend:

  • Testing multiple beauty looks (one for the ceremony and one for the reception). If your makeup artist cannot stay all day for your wedding, ask what you will need to complete your reception look without him/her.
  • Arriving with your bridal hair done or with an idea of what your wedding day hairstyle will look like.
  • Wearing a white top or one that is the same shade as your wedding dress so you can see how your makeup will appear when paired with your dress color.
  • Taking pictures with a camera that has a bright flash. This will help you determine what your makeup will look like under a professional camera flash, which tends to wash you out.

3 Things to Remember

Bridal makeup should be timeless. 20 years from now you should be able to look back at the pictures and still feel like your look is beautiful and classic.

Groom the groom. Often, the groom gets overlooked during the makeup preparations, but he wants to look good in pictures too. Ask your makeup artist to even his complexion or tone down the shine so he looks and feels great in your pictures.

Ask for what you want. Your wedding day is considered one of the most important days of your life, so don’t hesitate to ask your makeup artist for the exact look you want, and if you don’t like part of the look, make sure to speak up.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and two colors are on our mind – pink and red. Pink is our favorite lipstick color when we want to create an effortless, natural makeup look. But, red is the shade we choose when we want to stand out and feel confident. You may think a red lip is only for movie stars and women who drink everything out of straws. But we’re here to show you how easy it is to create a red pout that works with your style. Keep reading for simple tips from our Global Makeup Educators on how to wear red lipstick.

Beginner’s Guide: How to Wear Red Lipstick

If you rarely wear red lipstick, here are a few pointers from Global Makeup Educators Edgar Dominguez and Hannah Hatcher. With these four steps, you’ll have a soft, kiss-friendly pout all night.

Exfoliate First – “Red lipstick looks best on smooth, hydrated, plumped lips,” says Edgar. He recommends exfoliating and hydrating your lips with our Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator & Plumper before you even pick out your lipstick shade.

Define Your Lips – Use a lip liner that is a similar color to your lipstick (try Crimson Lip Pencil). This will give your lips natural definition. Hannah Suggests lining and filling in your lips with the same shade to help create a kiss-proof finish.

Use a Lip Brush – For the most precise look, Edgar recommends using our Retractable Lip Brush to apply the lipstick. The brush will make it easier to color inside your lip pencil line.

Set It, and Go! – For a matte stay-put pucker, Hannah likes to finish her red lipped look with a little Amazing Matte Loose Finish Powder. You can use your finger to gently dab it on over your lipstick.

Choosing the Right Red Lip for You

Red lip products come in many different shades and formulations. From the classic red lipstick à la Marilyn Monroe to a more natural red lip tint, we have you covered. Here are our favorite red lip products to use for a natural, classic or long-lasting look.

Natural Reds

  • “My favorite red shade that is youthful and flattering on all skin tones is Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain,’ says Edgar. “It has the perfect balance of coral and red, leaving you with a smooth personalized signature red that stays.”
  • Want to add a little shimmer to your candy apple lip? Product Trainer Christine Orcutt Savolis suggests topping your favorite lip product with Crabapple or Red Current PureGloss Lip Gloss.

The Classic Red

  • If you are looking for the classic red lipstick, Hannah’s pick is Cindy PureMoist Lipstick.

Long-lasting Reds

  • To ensure your lip color lasts through your romantic dinner, Global Makeup Educator Shawn Towne recommends using Lip Fixation. He says, “apply the stain from Passion Lip Fixation to your lips, then top it with Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain. The color it creates is really rich and beautiful.”
  • Christine’s secret to a matte red is Hot PlayOn Lip Crayon. She also likes to layer it with Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain for added staying power. “I always say when you want a red lip, you want it to last, ” she says. “Forever Red really stays and is easy to touch up later in the day.”

If your mind and body are struggling with the winter blues and chilly weather, turn to our Apricot Body Oil to invigorate your senses and soothe your skin. A Vogue, ELLE and Marie Claire favorite, this award-winning body oil blends fragrant apricot, moisturizing grape seed and hydrating jojoba oils for skin that is irresistibly smooth and supple from head to toe. Boxed in gorgeous, limited edition Valentine’s Day packaging, it’s the perfect gift for your sweetheart.

Warm this luxurious oil in your hands for a deeply hydrating, sensory massage – and if your blissful state leaves you craving more, try these unexpected ways to incorporate Apricot Body Oil into your body care routine.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, we can think of nothing more romantic (and downright relaxing) than a massage with our award-winning Apricot Body Oil. But when you’re done loosening up those tight shoulder muscles, you’ll find that this luscious body oil isn’t just miraculous for rubdowns and can be used in other surprising ways.

GIVE YOUR BODY LOTION A BOOST

Mix 1-3 drops of Apricot Body Oil with your favorite body lotion for an ultra-rich treat. We recommend pairing it with our Coconut Firming Body Lotion – another ELLE favorite – to deliver intense hydration to aging skin. The coconut, shea butter and grape seed oil in the Coconut Firming Body Lotion leave skin looking tighter and firmer, while the apricot kernel oil and jojoba oil in our Apricot Body Oil leave it feeling exquisitely soft and smooth. Massage into dry hands and elbows for an extra dose of long-lasting moisture.

RELAX IN AN AROMATIC BATH

For an all-over skin conditioning treatment, add 1-2 capfuls of Apricot Body Oil to your bath. Dim the lights and close your eyes for an indulgent aromatic experience. Muscles tired and aching after a rigorous workout? Add 2 cups of Epsom salts to your apricot-infused bath for ultimate relaxation. Once emerging from your heavenly soak (if you can!), smooth a few drops of Apricot Body Oil onto slightly damp skin for deeper penetration of this luscious oil’s feel-good ingredients.

SLOUGH OFF DRY WINTER SKIN

Say goodbye to dry and flaky winter skin by mixing a few drops of Apricot Body Oil with two shakes of Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. Rub your hands together to create a creamy paste and apply it to dry areas as a gentle all-over body scrub. The rice powder and lactic acid in the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant slough off dead skin cells and buff skin texture to leave it looking perfectly polished, while the Apricot Body Oil adds a dose of deep hydration for gorgeous, velvety skin.

If you follow our blog, you’ll know that we created a new 30 day habit for you to start off the year with the best skin ever (remember Part 1 here?). Now that you’re in the swing of things, we’ll take you through the rest of your 30 day plan for gorgeous, flawless skin. Stick to our organic skin care recommendations and prepare to behold your skin achieving next-level radiance:

chart_1

DAY 17
Apply an exfoliating peel to renew your skin surface with gentle acids. Our VitaSkin™ Exfoliating Peels are effective but gentle peels that can be used up to three times a week.

DAY 18
Use an eyecream today and every day. The delicate skin around your eyes needs daily care since it is the first area to show signs of dryness and aging.Nourish and hydrate the eye area daily with a moisturizer like Bearberry Eye Repair Cream.

DAY 19
Use a toner after cleansing to remove all traces of impurities and return your skin to its normal pH balance. Don’t know which toner to use? Explore our wide selection of toniques and mists for your particular skin type and read this blog post for tips.

DAY 20
Eat dark leafy greens today and regularly. Load up on kale, broccoli, chard and other greens that are full of antioxidants to help repair and renew your skin (TotalBeauty).

DAY 21
Use a night cream before you sleep. Ingredients are absorbed more readily into the skin overnight, hydration is more effective, and night creams tend to contain more actives. Review our night care products to find the right cream for your skin type.

DAY 22
Spray tonique throughout the day to hydrate. Instead of messing up your makeup during the day with a moisturizer or cream, try a tonique or mist to add moisture. The Stone Crop Hydrating Mist is a popular choice that can be used for all skin types.

DAY 23
Use serum regularly to target specific issues with your skin. Because serums contain a higher concentration of active ingredients, adding them to your routine will be the most effective type of product in tackling skin issues. Explore our array of serums, oils and concentrates.

DAY 24
Don’t forget your neck and chest area. The skin here tends to be thin and shows the first signs of aging. One fantastic product that’s formulated for these often-neglected areas is our Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for Face and Neck.

DAY 25
Eat watermelon or tomatoes today. These fruits are powered by lycopene, an antioxidant that reduces UV damage to the skin and protects against the visible signs of aging (Daily Mail).

DAY 26
Use a humidifier. Especially during dry winter months, a humidifier will help your skin retain moisture and stay healthy.

DAY 27
Try a facial oil for hydration. Using an oil in addition to, or instead of, a moisturizer can provide an extra source of hydration and also help balance oil production in your skin. Our new Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil is an innovative facial oil that treats signs of aging, hydrates deeply and is suitable for all skin types.

DAY 28
Exercise regularly. Physical activity increases circulation which helps nourish skin cells all over the body, including the face (WebMD).

DAY 29
Wash your pillowcase today and at least once a week. Bacteria stays on the fabric and can transfer to your face easily if bed linens aren’t kept clean.

DAY 30
Treat puffy eyes with cucumber slices and our Cucumber Eye Gel. A few minutes with the cooling effects of cucumber slices and a soothing application of our eye gel will revive eyes and reduce puffiness quickly.

Have you been following our 30 day habit for your best skin? Let us know in the comments below.

30daypart1

They say it can take 30 days to create a new habit and what better time than the first 30 days of 2017 to re-plan your skin care routine and achieve your best skin? For the next month, try out our 30 daily tips and incorporate them into your regular routine. Although these tips are just a limited selection of recommendations,  you’ll find these suggestions – and our natural, organic and Biodynamic® skin care – will optimize your complexion and bring out your inner goddess.

Here are the first 16 tips to kick off the month – check back with us next week to complete the 30 day habit!

chart_1
DAY 1
Go dairy and sugar free today. Especially if you’re recovering from an indulgent holiday diet, you’ll want to reduce your intake of these types of food. Studies now show a definite link between consuming dairy and high-sugar foods with problem skin (Skin Inc).

DAY 2
Wear moisturizer with sunscreen today and everyday. Did you know that UV rays are responsible for 80% of all signs of aging skin (Daily Mail)? Try one of our favorites, the Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF30 and screen your complexion from the visible signs of aging.

DAY 3
Drink 8 glasses of water today and everyday. Water hydrates your skin and helps clear toxins from the body.

DAY 4
Clean your makeup brushes today and at least once a week with our Natural Brush Cleaner. Keep your skin in its best shape by avoiding bacteria which can be spread by dirty makeup applicators.

DAY 5
Treat age spots and other hyperpigmentation issues. Stop ignoring uneven pigmentation on your skin and brighten your look with our Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster-Serum.

DAY 6
Exfoliate today and at least twice a week. Sloughing off dead skin cells will brighten up the look of your complexion and prevent clogged pores. Try our Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant which can be used for all skin types.

DAY 7
Book a facial at an authorized Éminence spa. Take your skin to the next level with regular treatments at a spa with estheticians who are trained in Éminence techniques and products.

DAY 8
Massage your skin lightly when cleansing. Instead of rinsing straight away, massage lightly with fingertips to increase circulation at the skin’s surface.

DAY 9
Go without makeup today. Give your skin a chance to rest and breathe freely without cosmetics for at least one day on a regular basis.

DAY 10
Drink a cup of green tea. Packed with healthy antioxidants, green tea combats free radicals that age the skin and body.

DAY 11
Mask today and at least once a week. Facial masks can add hydration, balance skin, pull out impurities and replenish nutrients. Explore our masques and treatments for one that’s right for your skin type.

DAY 12
Exfoliate your lips. Is your pucker feeling rough and scaly? Try the Citrus Enzyme Lip Exfoliator in our Lip Trio Kit to refine and smooth the lip area with fruit enzymes.

DAY 13
Apply body lotion after your shower everyday. Maximize hydration by locking in a layer of moisture immediately with a moisturizer like our Coconut Firming Body Lotion.

DAY 14
Wear sunglasses. When you reduce the number of times you squint and frown due to bright daylight, you diminish the fine lines and crow’s feet that develop around your eyes.

DAY 15
Get your beauty sleep. Target dark undereye circles and puffy eyes by getting a full night’s sleep and look refreshed the next morning.

DAY 16
Wipe down your cellphone. Do you know how many germs live on your cellphone which transfer to your face when you answer a call? Clean your phone regularly and promote healthy, bacteria-free skin.

As the days get shorter and the air gets cooler, we tend to spend more time indoors – and that’s exactly where nasty germs and airborne illnesses thrive. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to stay healthy this cold and flu season.

Here are 5 simple (immune boosting and germ fighting) tips to stay cold and flu free this winter:

1. Fight cold and flu viruses with Vitamin-C rich foods

Vitamin-C is our cold and flu fighting hero. Fresh, organic, fruits and veggies give us the nutrients we need to keep our immune system strong and healthy. Citrus fruits, berries, bell peppers and fresh green veggies (spinach, kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts) are all excellent sources of Vitamin-C. If you want to take your Vitamin-C intake to the next level, why not try some of our Vitamin-C rich products.

2. Wash away cold and flu causing germs

One simple step that we can all take to stay germ free is to wash your hands often with soap and warm water. Can’t find a sink? Then try a hand cleanser. We recommend our Tea Tree & Mint Hand Cleanser – our chemical-free (and refreshing) alternative to a hand sanitizer.

3. Get plenty of immune boosting rest and relaxation

Sleep allows our body, to rest, recover and recharge, so it’s important to make sure that we get enough of it. When it comes to keeping our immune system strong, reducing our stress levels is equally important as getting enough sleep. Stress can cause havoc on our immune system and can hinder our body’s natural defense mechanisms. What’s our favorite way to relax on a cool winter night? Add a few drops of our Apricot Body Oil to a warm bath and let the exotic, fruity aromas take you away to a state of ultimate relaxation.

4. Make clean, fresh air a part of day

With colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours, it can be difficult to make outdoor activity a priority. Recycled air harbors cold and flu viruses so it’s important to expose ourselves to fresh, clean air as much as possible. If you can’t get outside, try opening your windows (on warmer winter days) to let fresh air in, and stale air out.

5. Boost your immune system with exercise

We all know that exercise is good for us, but what many of us may don’t realize is that regular physical activity can help boost our immune system. When we exercise, we release toxins (through our sweat) and we also heat up our body temperature which in turn boosts our body’s natural virus-fighting ability.

Here’s to a happy and healthy winter!
