Monday marked the first official day of fall—woot! And while we’ve been figuring out how to adjust our skincare routines with the adjusting temps, we’ve also been patiently waiting for autumn to arrive so that we can indulge in some of our favorite fall looks. Fall brings feels of warm hues and simple muted tones for everyday wear, while also deep, bold colors for when you want to up the drama.
We called on W3LL PEOPLE co-founder and cosmetic dermatologist Dr.Reneé Snyder, to model our glowing fall look and decided to make her gorgeous eyes the focal point. Taking cues from fall foliage and that flushed glow that comes from sitting near a cozy fire, here are the makeup essentials we use to get our W3LL Spice look:
Nudist Eyeshadow Palette 1
Hypnotist Eyeliner in brown
Expressionist Volumizing Mascara in black
Nudist Multi-Use Stick in nude peach
Bio Extreme Lip Gloss in afterglow
Our Nudist Eyeshadow Palette in 1 is the quintessential autumn palette, boasting rich, taupe-based hues that blend nicely and can create both minimal or dramatic aesthetics for the eyes.
Step One: For the base, sweep the color “Bone” all over the eye.
Step Two: Smudge the color “Chile” to create a bolder, more bronzed sheen where the lashes meet the eyelid. Putting such a deep hue near the eyes really makes them pop!
Step Three: Next, apply “Adobe” along the crease of the eyelid and move downwards to meet with Chile at the lash line. This soft taupe blends the other two shades together nicely for a more natural look.
Step Four: Use the shade “Saddle” to tie the different shade gradients all together. Where our previous colors “Chile” and “Adobe” meet, lightly press “Saddle” across the lid and blend together until there are no defining lines of color.
Want some extra sparkle for a special occasion? Pat “Luminaria” onto the brow bone and blend down.
Step Five: If you want a more amplified eye, apply one of our Hypnotist Eye Pencils halfway across the lower lash line and the upper lash line. Then using the W3LL PEOPLE Angled Eye Brush, blend the liner into the eye lid for a more smudged and lived-in look. We used the color brown because…fall!
Step Six: More than other seasons, fall is a time to get dramatic with eyes! We love to play into this with BIG, thick lashes using our brand new Expressionist Volumizing Mascara, which gives major length and color to lashes without clumping.
Step Seven: Feathered, bushier brows are our favorite in the fall, mostly because it suggests that yes, it’s probably cold and we’re not focused on making sure all of our body hair—including our brows—are perfectly managed when we’re just trying to stay warm and cozy throughout the season. Lightly sweep Expressionist Brow Gel across the eyebrow in the direction it grows to create a fuller, still natural brow.
Step Eight: To create that fall-flushed glow, apply our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick in the shade “Nude Peach” across the apples of cheeks to capture an effortless blend of soft, naturally flushed hues.
Step Nine: We like to set this makeup look with our Bio Brightening Powder, which has a soft, translucent hue that creates the subtlest highlight on facial angles. So pretty outdoors in the fall sun or indoors in the candlelight of a dinner party!
Step Ten: We’re back to our beloved Nudist Multi-Use Cream stick to finish the look. Take the same shade, Nude Peach, and dab it onto the lips for a flushed tone and then apply our Bio Extreme Lipgloss in the shade “Afterglow” for a soft, peachy pout.
Renee’s got that Autumn glow!

The rumors are true! You may have spotted our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes floating around Instagram, or perhaps in the natural beauty aisle at your local Target — where they were available exclusively up until now!
Today we are launching our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes on our own channels, and are so excited for you to experience first-hand all the love, innovation, and good-for-you ingredients that we have packed into each one of these dreamy hues.
What’s different about our palettes, and why should you make the switch to nontoxic eyeshadows? Conventional eyeshadows can contain harmful preservatives such as formaldehyde, or nasty ingredients like aluminum powder or talc. Our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes are completely safe, healthy, and nontoxic, along with being vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, and created using sustainable energy. They are formulated using a proprietary blend of beautiful botanicals and treat your sensitive eye area to a dose of organic grapeseed oil, organic jojoba seed oil, and organic rosemary oil. Their gorgeous, good-for-you formula goes on smooth, blends easily, and never looks chalky.
Inspired by the Rocky Mountains of Northern New Mexico, the collection currently offers two palettes featuring 5 plant-based, velvety shades that are rich in color while touting serious staying power and superior blendability.
The two palettes work together to create a dreamy collection of 10 shades that work for all eye colors and complexions, to provide you with a full range of shades that create a variety of subtle and dramatic looks — all without the use parabens, sulfates, crappy fillers, or harmful ingredients.
Our Taupe-Based Palette has gorgeous natural hues ranging from pale peach to a deep brown. The palette features the following shades: 1 -Bone, 2 – Luminaria, 3 -Saddle, 4 -Adobe, and 5 – Chile Chocolate.

Are you ready to elevate your brow game, Brave Beauty? This week we unveiled our latest green beauty innovation, our collection of Expressionist Brow Gels!
A gorgeous, full, defined brow is the quickest way to accentuate your eyes, help your face appear more symmetrical, and quickly feel more polished and put together. We dreamed of a brow product that did it all without being overly complicated, and this brow gel is the manifestation of every brow goal we’ve ever had.
It strengthens brows with cacao seed butter, conditions with shea butter, and nourishes with aloe, while simultaneously being a 3-in-1 grooming product that thickens, fills, and shapes your brows with just a few strokes. The plant-based, cream, wax formula delivers a boost of pigment and a soft, flexible hold that doesn’t get stiff, sticky, or flaky.
Of course, we didn’t stop with mind-blowing performance or plant-based power. This brow gel is also cruelty-free, vegan, EWG verified, gluten-free, GMO-free, and free of any crappy fillers or ingredients.
Remove the wand from the tube, removing any excess product from the bristles.
Brush into brows using short, upward strokes and allow them to set for 15-30 seconds.
Finally, use the bristled wand to gently shape brows into place.
Hello Brave Beauties, it’s Shirley again with a quick tutorial and yet another incredible new product from W3LL PEOPLE to introduce you to!
I’m thrilled to reveal our Nudist Plum Eyeshadow Palette, which will be launching in the next few weeks. Our Nudist palettes each consist of 5 plant-based colors in either a Taupe or Plum range, that have a propriety blend of botanicals, giving each shade a creamy velvet texture, rich color, serious staying power and superior blendability. If you want first dibs on these incredible palettes you can click here and add your name to the waitlist. Our team will email you as soon as these babies are available!
Today I’m going to walk you through a super simple smoky eye look using the five nontoxic shades that are included in the Nudist Plum Eyeshadow Palette.
Start this look off by applying a base eyeshadow. This helps brighten the eye, even skin tone, and create a clean canvas that you can build upon. I used Rose Quartz, a soft delicate peony toned shade. The shadow is so silky that I used my finger to apply and blend! This helps create a natural, “lived-in” look with your base.
In the second step, I’m going to start smoking things up. To do this I’m using the Hypnotist Eyepencil in Black, which will create the perfect primer for a rich, smoky eye. You simply scribble the pencil directly onto your finger, and then gently tap it onto your upper lid similar to how you would apply a cream shadow. We’ve now created the perfect texture for the eyeshadow to adhere to. Don’t stress about achieving the most perfectly blended eye- we will be applying eyeshadow over this and it will smooth everything out.
Now it’s time to add dimension to this look. The Deep Amethyst shade in the palette is a delicate shimmering plum. It’s absolutely gorgeous! It has the perfect balance of shimmer and creaminess, creating the ideal satin texture. Press Deep Amethyst directly on top of the smoothed out black eyeliner. In doing so, you will notice that the shadow blends impeccably! Really brightening and enlivening the darkness of the pencil.
The last step eyeshadow step is adding a pop of light! I’m simply blending in Aura, a shimmering rose, onto the inner corner of the eyelid. I love how this helps open up and brighten the eye. It glows but isn’t glittering.
Finish this smoky eye look with our Expressionist Mascara in Black. I chose to only focus on my upper lid, but if you love a good layer of mascara on the bottom lid- go for it!
If you’d like to convert this look into evening glam for an event or date, simply mimic the eyeshadow application on the bottom lid. Apply a thin smudged line of liner onto the bottom lash-line, and smooth it out with Deep Amethyst. Add a layer of our Expressionist Mascara, and you will instantly have the ultimate smoky eye!
Elevate your entire look by applying a quick swipe of highlighter and concealer. I apply a good amount of our Bio Brightener Stick to my cheekbone before I apply the Bio Correct Concealer (in Light). Once the highlighter is in place, I add a dab of concealer onto the inner half of the under-eye. I then blend both products together with my finger to create luminous coverage.
One of my makeup mantras is ‘choose your weapon’. This look clearly is about the eye, so I’m going to suggest that we keep the lips subtle with a layer of our Bio Extreme Gloss in Nudist. This gloss has natural peptides that plump the lips just enough to smooth them out and minimize fine lines, while this color adds dimension and shine without being too attention-grabbing.
You can watch me apply this entire look on our IGTV channel by clicking the link below or following us on Instagram @W3LLPEOPLE! We can’t wait to see this gorgeous look on you. Give it a try and #BEW3LL!
Why not kick off the New Year with a refreshed beauty routine that is healthy, non-toxic, and good-for-you? Removing toxic products from your beauty routine can seem a bit daunting at first, but our goal at W3LL PEOPLE is to make clean, healthy beauty simple and hassle-free. We recommend starting slow, and replacing the items that are used most frequently, are the most toxic, or come into the most contact with your skin or sensitive areas. When asked which products to swap out first, these are the four products our experts recommend replacing ASAP:
Mascara – Switching to a nontoxic mascara should be a high priority for all of us. Not only do most conventional mascaras contain coal tar, but they can also contain other nasty ingredients that are drying and damaging to your natural lashes. Our Expressionist Mascara not only comes with a clean ingredient deck, but it also comes with the added benefit of plant-based ingredients like castor seed oil and sunflower seed oil, which help promote lash health and growth. We’ve combined an incredible formula with a state-of-the-art rubble-bristled wand that helps lengthen, define and curl your lashes. You won’t miss your toxic mascara for a second, we promise!
Lip Products – We don’t have to remind you of how much lipstick the average woman consumes in her lifetime, do we? Okay, we’re going to: it’s upwards of 4 pounds or more! Obviously, the products that go near our mouth should be nontoxic and as close to consumable as possible. W3LL PEOPLE offers four versatile lip products that provide you with varying levels of coverage, powerful pigments, and botanical formulas that outperform their toxic competition (left to right): Bio Extreme Lipgloss (Nude Rose), Optimist Lipstick (Om Yeah), Nudist Lip Butter (Cherry), Nudist Multi-Use Stick (Nude Rose).
If you’re feeling “stuck” on where to start with your green beauty transition, we hope that this post will give you a gentle nudge in the right direction. We know that you will be blown away not only by the performance of our nontoxic products but also by the way they nourish and improve your skin, that you’ll be happy to swap out each product in your makeup bag! Make sure you’re following along with us on Instagram, @W3LLPEOPLE, this month as we share more tips and tools for making the switch to clean beauty.
