Nontoxic Holiday Makeup

nontoxic-holiday-makeup-with-w3ll-people

Hi, Brave Beauties! Shirley here from W3LL PEOPLE and today I’m going to show you one of my favorite classic holiday looks using our safe, non-toxic, cruelty-free cosmetic. This look features a bold, festive lip coupled with natural, glowing skin. W3LL PEOPLE has several incredible new products debuting in 2019, and it’s my honor to preview a couple of our new innovations during today’s tutorial.

complexion

First, I prep my skin. I’m going to start with our Bio Booster Serum and our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer. Those of you who have attended my master classes know how much I love the way these two products work together. I’m wearing Bio Tint in Medium. Typically I would match to Light, but I like to add a little color in the winter to warm my complexion. I combine about 1 1/2 pumps of Bio Tint with 2 nourishing drops of our Bio Booster Facial Serum, mix them together in my hand, and then press gently into my skin and blend.

What this creates is a custom serum foundation that delivers a really healthy finish on the skin. Slight imperfections still peek through (embrace them!), but it creates a gorgeous no-makeup makeup look that is radiant and glowy.

Next up is our Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer, which is probably the most effective piece of makeup in my routine right now. Being a proud mom and business owner equates to some pretty hefty coverage needs! Less is more- a pea-sized amount is all I need to cover both eyes. What I love about this little guy is that A) It packs in a serious amount of coverage, and B) It’s loaded with organic coffee seed oil, which is going to stimulate the complexion, calming inflammation, and diminishing any puffiness around the eyes. For the record, our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer also contains this organic coffee seed oil and it has an SPF of 30, so you’re getting both your glow and your protection with this foundation look.

When applying your concealer, make sure not to skip your eyelids. Not only does this help to instantly open and brighten your gaze, but our Bio Correct Multi-action Concealer also acts as a great eyeshadow primer.

At this point, you could leave your skin as-is. That would be my basic everyday foundation look. But, since this is a holiday look, I’m going to add a bit of extra coverage to help my makeup last well into the night. I’m going to take our NEW Bio Base Baked Foundation in Shade 4 (medium neutral), load it up onto my W3LL PEOPLE Kabuki Brush, and press it into my skin. The coverage is light to medium. It is so silky that I will use it to set my concealer and to minimize shine in my T zone. I polish my complexion using downward strokes with the Kabuki Brush to help blend and set the entire foundation.

Time to warm it up! I’m going to use our Bio Baked Bronzer and Kabuki Brush to add some subtle contouring along the perimeter of my forehead and beneath my cheekbone, essentially creating a ‘C’ shape along the edge of my face. You’ll notice that this instantly adds warmth and dimension to your skin.

eyes

Would you like a special preview into 2019 at W3LL PEOPLE? We’ve started the buzz already, but here’s your chance to get a peek at some of the products we’re releasing in the new year, starting with our Expressionist Brow Gel (launching in February 2019!).

Start by clearing off any excess product from the brush. Apply it to brows by brushing with short, upward strokes. This is a powerful pigmented gel that acts as a brow tint and brow gel all in one. It adds just a hint of color to help your brows look fuller, and it will hold them in place all day long.

Now that you’ve met the Expressionist Brow Gel, I am also going to tease you with one more thing, our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes, which will also be launching in early 2019. Today we’re going to create a bright-eyed look using our Nudist Taupe Palette. Next week I will be creating a sultry deep smokey eye using our Nudist Plum Palette. If you’re interested in the palette you can get first dibs when it launches by joining the waitlist

‘Bone’, a matte ivory, will be my base color. I’m going to apply this all over my eyelid. I prefer to press my shadow in which helps place it exactly where you want it.

Now, let’s add some dimension by pressing ‘Saddle‘, a warm matte tan, into our crease. I’m going to apply it by deliberately placing it into the crease of my eye. After wiping the excess color from my brush, I blend it out. You an also smooth it out with the tip of your finger to get a really natural smudged look.

Let’s add a little glow with ‘Luminaria’, a glistening champagne. This is actually my favorite color in the entire palette, I love light shades on my eyes and the way this color pops. I’m applying this to my eyelids, focusing mostly on the center and blending to the edges. Blend what’s left on the brush underneath the brows creating a soft highlight.

To further add dimension I’m going to use this illuminating bronze tone in the palette called ‘Adobe‘, which has a slight glisten to it. Once the four eyeshadow colors are in place, I use my finger to softly blend everything together.

Time for our Expressionist Liquid Eyeliner! To properly apply a tight line start by wiping any excess product off on the edge of the felt tip applicator as you extract the wand, then use the fine-pointed applicator to gently stipple the liner into the base of your lashes. It’s almost like you’re trying to dot it in between each lash hair. This technique follows your natural eye shape, makes your lashes look thicker and fuller while defining the eye. This eyeliner is built on performance and longevity, and you’ll absolutely love the way it wears.

I’m going to finish my eyes by applying our Expressionist Mascara. I think that mascara is the most magical part of any beauty routine, it just opens up the eyes and finishes the look so beautifully. I have a memorable catchphrase that I say often in my workshops, “Jiggle and Twirl”. Just nestle that wand really tight into your lashes, and then jiggle and twirl the brush all the way up to separate the lashes while delivering the perfect amount of product. I apply two coats per eye, and you’ll notice that our mascara stays malleable for a few seconds, giving you enough time to work with your lashes and apply that second coat. It doesn’t get super dry, crunchy, spidery, or flakey.

cheeks-and-lips

If you know me, you know that mascara and blush are my two most sacred products. I simply don’t feel alive without blush, and our Nudist Multi-Use Powder Duo delivers a gorgeous, universally flattering shade of warm coral along with a beautiful golden highlighter. I used our Flat Foundation Brush to apply the coral shade to the apples of my cheeks and then gently blend.

Now we’re going to highlight with the golden shade from the Nudist Multi-Use Powder Duo. This shade is super versatile…a good rule of thumb is to apply it where sunlight would naturally hit your face. I’m going to apply it onto the tops of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and center of my forehead. Then I wipe off my brush and use it to blend the glow right into my skin. Our highlighter is different from our Bio Brightener Cream. It’s a powder instead of a cream, but it’s also a little warmer and golden, versus Bio Brightener which is a little cooler. Depending on your complexion and which tones you prefer, you might want to highlight with the Bio Brightener Stick instead.

The final piece of our holiday look is our Optimist Lipstick in Retrograde. If this gorgeous shade of red isn’t enough to win you over, the locking, mirrored tube will surely impress you. Retrograde is the most neutral, wearable red. It has a blue, yet warm undertone and a lot of depth, almost like an oxblood. You can apply our Optimist Lipstick directly to lips for a classic, semi-matte lipstick look, or apply it with a Lipstick Brush and blot it off to wear it as a stain. This is really the finishing touch on this holiday look!

This holiday look that can be easily transformed from day to night. Follow this tutorial for the skin, eyes, and cheeks but use a neutral Optimist Lip Shade like Let it Go for daytime. When you are ready to take it up a notch, switch to Retrograde!

Fall in Love With This Fig Makeup Look

Step by Step Beauty Tutorial: Fig Makeup Look featuring natural, vegan products from W3LL PEOPLE.

We’re embracing the arrival of cooler temps and the sound of crunching leaves, so we decided to overhaul our go-to beauty routine with some fall feels, too! Check out this simple makeup tutorial created by our team of green beauty pros to accomplish the look above.

Step 1: Set the scene for this look by prepping your skin. Make sure it is clean, exfoliated and moisturized. We recommend pressing a couple drops of our Bio Booster Facial Serum into skin to help awaken your complexion and provide a supple, hydrated base.

Step 2: Hide blemishes and erase any discoloration by applying our Narcissist Foundation Stick to face using fingertips, which helps warm up this cream foundation so that it blends effortlessly into your skin. To even-out and brighten the under-eye area, we recommend applying our Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer. Match it to your skin-tone for natural coverage, or go one shade lighter if you’d like your eyes to look brighter and more awake.

Step 3: Apply our perfectly formulated Bio Bronzer Powder (never too orange or too brown) to your face for a hint of summer color no matter the season! Our pro tip is to apply this Allure Best of Beauty Award Winning bronzer where the sun normally hits your face: focus on the top of your forehead, along your cheekbones and lightly beneath the jawline.

To get the perfectly fall cheek color seen above, we’ve combined two of our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Sticks, Nude Rose and Nude Berry! They are each beautiful on their own, but together they create a beautiful tawny mauve that adds the perfect punch of fall color. Simply combine the two shades on the back of your hand, press into the apples of your cheeks and gently blend up and back. Our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Sticks not only add sheer, vegan color, but they infuse your skin with organic aloe and antioxidants. Plus, they can be used on cheeks as well as eyes and lips.

Step 4: Next, add dimension and radiance to your face using our Bio Brightener Stick. This “magic wand” helps create a hydrated, happy, youthful glow with just a few swipes! For this look we applied Bio Brightener to the very tops of the cheekbones, sweeping upward toward the orbital bone.

To set under-eye concealer and add a bonus pop of brightness, gently set the area by sweeping a light layer of our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder beneath eyes. You can gently tap it into place using the pads of your fingers. This universal powder adjusts to suit any skin-tone, and instantly brightens and illuminates your skin with an infusion of crushed freshwater pearl powder.

Step 5: For the eyes we are keeping things simple. We started by applying our Hypnotist Eyepencil in brown to the lash line, keeping it tight, and then smudging it outwards along the lash line. Not only does this boldly frame the eyes, but by gently pressing the liner into the lashes, it helps them look naturally thicker and more lush. To add warmth to the eyes and make them pop, sweep our Bio Bronzer Powder  into the crease of your eye. Bonus! Our Hypnotist Eyepencil in brown can multi-task as a great natural, nontoxic, universal eyebrow pencil! Gently brush it into brows to fill in any sparse areas or provide more shape.

If you’d like an eye look that is slightly more dramatic, you can layer our Expressionist Liquid Eyeliner near the lashline at this point. It will help define eyes, and the simple addition of a winged end can help eyes appear bigger. Finish eyes with two coats of our Expressionst Mascara in Black (or try plum for an adventurous fall twist), use the rubber-bristled brush to work the mascara down into lashes, and then lift them upwards and outwards to lengthen and separate. If you tend to have straight lashes, and would like to provide them with natural lift and curl, try gently pressing your lashes upward while the mascara is still damp.

Step 6: Now for the grand finale: your lips! This rich color helps them stand out in a big way, but the routine is pretty simple! Simply coat your lips with our Nudist Lip Butter in Fig for a wash of rich, burgundy color. These soothing lip quenchers are our favorite product for fall and winter, because they help infuse your lips with penetrating, nourishing hydration thanks to a formula that is rich in carrot seed oil, aloe, omegas and chamomile.

ADDED BONUS: For the  entire month of October receive a FREE Nudist Lip Butter #2 in Fig with the purchase of any full-size product online or in-store. Cannot be combined with any other offer, restrictions may apply.  

That’s it! A simple routine with a palette that is sure to compliment your coziest sweaters, and one that you can feel good about thanks to ingredients that are natural, clean and good for you! Try out this fall makeup look and share it with us on Instagram!

How to Master Nontouring

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

Dear Face: meet nontouring. Just when you thought the 13,054th YouTube tutorial attempt was going to help you master your contouring, the beauty world says “Move over!” and introduces you to Nontouring. Thankfully this trend arrives just as we pull back the curtain on our newest, innovative creation: The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo.

Two amazing products in one easy-to-use package that is sure to make you a Nontouring pro in no time! Nontouring is the love-child of contouring and strobing, and is meant to produce a soft, lit-from-within, natural look . Our green beauty master makeup artist, Shirley Pinkson, thinks of Nontouring as instantly faking a facial. The key is to keep skin vibrant, dewy and radiant by delicately layering foundation, bronzer and highlighter.

Nontouring using our natural, vegan, cruelty-free, nontoxic cosmetics and 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 ingredients that help treat and improve your skin’s appearance while you wear it.

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

To get your Nontour on, start by evening out your skin-tone using our Narcissist Foundation Stick. A tip from Shirley: apply Narcissist using the W3LL PEOPLE Kabuki Brush to help the finish be superbly blended, sheer and luminous. Next, add some depth to your complexion using our Bio Bronzer, included in the Natural Duo. Apply and blend using your fingertips or our Flat Foundation Brush. Avoid using Bio Bronzer it to define your nose or chisel cheekbones, and instead focus on areas that would naturally be kissed by the sun — perhaps just 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.

The last two steps are the key to mastering your Nontour! For nontouring, we recommend using a cream blush that adds a hint of juicy color to cheeks. We love blending a pop of color into the apples of our cheeks using our Nudist Multi-Use Cream. Once your cheeks are poppin’, finish the look with our Bio Brightener Stick. Use it to highlight 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 you Nontour with our natural products! Share a photo of your look with us on Instagram by tagging @W3LLPEOPLE and #BEW3LL.

Each season, our team of experts curates a special collection of products that highlights the hottest trends in beauty. You can check out our current essentials here.

This quick look is perfect for everyday and is great when you are pressed for time. Start by neutralizing redness and covering blemishes with our new Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer. Our Bio Correct has a mousse formula with great coverage, and is also loaded with the benefits of blue algae extract and caffeine to help depuff and smooth! Use it under your eyes to look instantly more awake and refreshed. We also recommend using a small amount across your lids as an eyelid primer (go ahead, try it, you won’t believe how well it works)! While it is still tacky buff our Elitist Eyeshadow Powder 814 from lash line to brows for a neutral, peachy eye that stays put all day long without the use of chemicals or toxic ingredients.

Now that your skin is evened out and glowing, try applying a pop of color to the apples of your cheeks using our Universalist Multi-Stick 7! Apply a quarter-sized circle of color onto the very apple of your cheeks, and then blend softly into skin using your fingertips.

Next, you’re going to put your cheek color on your eyes and your eye product on your cheeks. Are you following us? We promise, this is gorgeous (and a tip that is approved by our green beauty guru, Shirley)! Take the Universalist 7 and apply a small amount to your finger, then blend it into the crease of your eye for a very natural daytime smoky effect. Take your Elitist Eyeshadow Powder 814 and using your finger or a small brush simply place a small dot of it directly onto the apple of your cheek (it’s where the pupil of the eye and nostril meet) and then blend in lightly. It will give you an inner glow that helps you look radiant and healthy!

Finish with your lips! Push your multitasking even further by using Universalist 7 as a base color on your lips, and then top it with our Bio Extreme Lipgloss in Nude Rose. Or keep it simple with just the gloss, we’ll leave that up to you! Finish the entire look with a coat of our no clump, no smear, no chemicals Expressionist Mascara!
