  • Everything's Coming Up Roses

    I am a self-admitted rose lover. From the fragrant aroma of fresh cut roses to using a few drops of rose essential oil in the bath, I can't get enough of this glorious flower. So, it should come as no surprise to you that the pretty pale pink hue of springtime roses served as my inspiration in creating two of our latest blush shades!
     

    First we have At First Blush, a dreamy, luscious pastel color that will give you a rosy flush for any kind of weather.

    This is a lovely light, warm pink that will give your cheeks the perfect pop of color as the weather begins to warm up for spring.
     
    Our second newest blush is called Pink for Flower Blush, and is a bit paler and dustier than the other.
    pink_for_flower
    This shade resembles a sweet bouquet of soft hints of pink blossoms in a field of flowers, and provides just the most delightful kiss of color!
     

    Our new Love At First Blush Kit also contains a delightful array of rosy spring blush shades that I've had so much fun playing around with over the past few weeks!

    While layering these shades to create totally new combinations for my cheeks to revel in, I had the pleasure of seeing YouTube beauty superstar Samantha Schuerman include a shade of blush from this kit, Tea Rose, as one of her recent weekly favorites!

  • DIY Weaving Loom

    I’ve always wanted to get into weaving, but the sky high prices of a just a simple loom really hindered my interest. One day, after receiving a fresh pair of shoes, it occurred to me, “I can just use the box to make a loom…genius!” And so, this DIY was born.

    416A5691

    What You Need:

    Lid from a cardboard box

    Scissors

    Pencil

    Ruler

    Duct Tape

    Yarn for your weaving

     

    Directions:

    416A5506

    1. 1. Cut off the edges/fold-over part of your cardboard box, and trim the piece of cardboard the desired length for your weaving.

    416A5533

    1. 2. Using a ruler, mark lines at every half inch along the top and bottom of your board. Then make little snips along these lines to create slits that will hold the yarn in place.

    416A5542

    1. 3. String pieces of yarn between the slits at either end, and leave tails hanging.

    416A5551

    1. 4. Flip the box over and tape down the tails with duct tape.

    416A5597

    1. 5. Now, start your weaving too look however you would like it to look! After every few rows, push the lines together so they stay nice and tightly packed.

    416A5652

    1. 6. Once you’re wrapped up, tie off the ends (I did it in groups of three since I like the tassel look) and weave back in and tails you left hanging on the sides.

    416A5668

    1. 7. I decided to hang my weaving from a stick, so at the top I simply tied groups of three around the twig and trimmed the excess. If you have a different method of hanging, you can always weave the loose ends at the top back into your piece.

  • Spring Blogger Love!

    It's Spring... one of my favorite seasons! Flowers are blooming and the sun is warming up the soil, and there's just such a feeling of growth and regeneration in the air. Love!
     
    Today, I am so excited to share with you a bunch of recent blogger love for some of our freshest products of the season. We recently launched two fantastic new kits, the first being the REAL YOU COMPLEXION KIT.

The REAL YOU COMPLEXION KIT was designed to let your beauty shine through, and enhance your complexion's natural radiance. 
     
    Our other new kit (which I am especially crushing on) is our LOVE AT FIRST BLUSH KIT.

    I was thrilled that a bunch of my favorite bloggers, Instagram stars and YouTube vloggers were so enamored with these kits! The beautiful photos and videos that they shared with their loyal followers were just too amazing not to pass along to you!
     
    Bloggers showed so much love for the LOVE AT FIRST BLUSH KIT, from Courtney of Pretty Little Fawn pretty rose-adorned image to An of Haute Pink Pretty's shot of her blushes that were perfectly complemented by the pink hue of her Chanel book. Christina of Trop Rouge also posted an adorable image of her favorite rosy blush, and Coury of Fancy Treehouse's photo of her daughter's hand grabbing for the blush just made me melt!

  • 5 Products I'm Loving for Spring

    EM Spring 5

    Spring is in the air! The season that brings fresh energy and a wonderful feeling of inspired renewal is upon us, and I can't wait to lighten up on several levels. First, I plan on spending more time outdoors... walking through the beautiful fields here on our farm in Austin, planting flowers and enjoying time with my family. I also plan to lighten up by practicing many of the tips I offered up for ways to naturally increase your energy levels.  
     
    Another way I want to lighten up this spring? With my makeup! I have always been a big fan of light, minimal makeup, and so many of our newest products take this message to heart! Whether it's by providing a delicate, sheer wash of earthy color or a shade that naturally resembles the skin, I've rounded up 5 of my favorite products for pretty spring makeup looks.
     
    The Soft Peach Color Corrector is magical in terms of it's skin correcting qualities! By adding just a dab of this product, discolorations are neutralized and skin tone is evened. 
     
    Spring Berries Tinted Lip Butter is a totally moisturizing balm with the prettiest hint of natural berry color. Marula and Passion Fruit plant oils, along with Murumuru Amazonian butters and Meadowfoam Seed Oil leave behind a nourishing gloss that is so delectable.
     
    The Fresh Rose Blossom Blush provides you with a subtle kiss of rosy color that enhances the natural tone of your cheeks. This shade will give you a fresh-faced rosy flush.
     
    Our Bronzed Finishing Dust will offer your skin a bit of completely natural sun-kissed color, replication the look of spending a lazy afternoon in the sun. A translucent tint of color that never looks fake, this dust is a must-try!
     
    I Fancy You Eye Shadow is such a wonderful, neutral color that provides a tender touch of dimension to your lids for Spring. A light taupe color that can be layered with other shadows, this shade is great for a barely-there makeup look.

    What is your favorite part of your job?

    I get to learn so many interesting things about natural ingredients, botanicals, and the biochemistry of hair and skin. Also I feel like it's a perfect thing for me because I am artist and creative but also love science, and my job is a fairly equal balance of the two!

    What are the most challenging parts of your job?

    I am limited in what ingredients I can use since we only use natural and plant or mineral derived ingredients, so it takes more creativity and research to make the products work as well as mainstream products.

    photo 3-1

    What do you love about your city?

    Austin is weird so I fit right in! And I love the weather here. Good combination of hip and progressive city life and warm weather that is hard to come by - San Francisco is too cold for me!

    What event in your city do you look forward to every year?

    The Texas VegFest. It's pretty new, I believe the one coming up this April will be the third one, but it is a lot of fun and there's so many awesome speakers and great vegan food.

    photo 1-1

    What healthy living tips can you provide?

    Find something active you enjoy and do that. Eat lots of fruits, veggies, beans, and omega-3 rich seeds! A balance in all things is really important for your mental health - but whatever a good balance looks like for you, it might not necessarily be 'moderation.'

    What is your favorite food and restaurant?

    I love the Concious Cravings trailer on South First. Their BBQ Seitan Wrap and rosemary fries are so good! I also love going to the new South Wheatsville for a Popcorn Tofu Po'boy and Capital City Bakery for the best vegan cupcakes in Austin. I am a vegan and there is certainly no shortage of great vegan food here! I've been vegan for 9 years, since I was 14 and a freshman in high school! So Everyday Minerals being a vegan company was definitely one of the things that appealed to me.

    What's your favorite product to make and why?

    The sugar scrub because it smells nice and looks pretty.

    photo 2-1

    What are you most excited about right now?

    In May I'm going to New York city to attend a one-day class on cosmetic preservation. I've never been to NYC and I'm very excited to learn things that will help me create inventive products.

    What music are you listening to right now? 

    "Summertime Sadness" by Lana Del Ray

    What is your favorite place that you've traveled/where do you want to travel?

    When I was 13 I went to Yellowstone with my parents, and I loved seeing all the wildlife there. I am looking forward to going to NYC for the first time, and I hope to visit Europe and Australia some day.

  • DIY Succulent Mobile

    Obsession confession: house plants. You can never have enough. They are the silent companions, the life teachers, and the friends who will always put a smile on your face.

    Double obsession confession: succulents. They will never get mad at you for forgetting to water them, and they look like Mother Nature’s coolest alien.

    Now here’s a fun new DIY to celebrate the obsession and fill your house with hanging succulents.

    416A5053

     

    You’ll Need:

    -        Sculpt It (air hardening sculpting material)

    -        5 Old Jars (I used a mixture of jars from spices and preserves that varied in size)

    -        5 Inches of stiff wire

    -        String

    -        Pointed clay tool or safety pin to poke holes

    -        Paint color of your choice

    -        Paint Brush

    -        Cup & Water for painting

    -        Painter’s tape

    -        5 Small succulents & soil

    Directions

    1. Taking a small piece of sculpt it and roll it into a ball.

    2. Flatten the ball into a round sheet with your fingers416A4815

    3. Mold the flattened piece around the bottom of a jar.

    416A4834

    4. Polk two holes on opposites sides of the clay where you will feed your strings through. 416A4825

    5. Poke another hole in the center bottom for string as well.

    6. Let your sculpt it dry completely. Part way through, pull it off the jars and let it sit to continue drying. The whole drying process takes about one day or two. Be patient.

    7. Once your clay is dry, tape off the top half with painters tape.416A4959

    8. Thoroughly paint the bottom half and let dry. 416A5004

    9. String two strings through the holes on either side of each planter, and knot them on the inside to secure. Leave the strings on the smallest and second to biggest planters fairly long so that you can choose how low they will hang.

    string

    10. To begin putting everything together, figure out which succulent you want to put in which container, and line them up smallest to biggest.

    416A5019

    11. Plant the biggest container first. Then, pick up the strings so you can find where it hangs centered. Once you’ve found the spot, tie a knot and feed the strandsthrough the bottom hole of the next planter, tying another knot to secure.

    12. Plant your second to largest pot next and set the two to the side.

    13. Plant the next three planters on their own using the same method. So you will have one strand of two planters, and another of three.

    416A5039

    14. Hang both strands from the ceiling so that the hole of one hangs next to the knot above the other. Stick a piece of wire in the hole and wrap it around the knot of the other to keep them separated like a mobile.
