  • What to Wear with The Little Black Dress

    We all know the LBD is never, ever going out of style, and we are very thankful for that. The great thing about neutral colors in your outfit, is that it's not only encouraged but even important to have a little bit of fun with color on your face. Here are a few products to make you stand out before a night on the town.

    We love this simple tank dress from local fashion hub Beehive Boutique. Shop the dress and more online.

    Our Picks

    Clockwise from top right

    Calm and Collected Skin Tint: Black tends to make everyone look a bit sallow. Warm up your skin and get a nice glow by applying Calm and Collected Skin Tint all over, even onto the neck and chest. Prefer a matte finish? Try Poised to Perfection Skin Tint instead.

    Girl Friday Blush: We love a nice pinky blush with a black outfit. And Girl Friday has just enough color to give you the pop you need to stand out. Plus, the name just makes you feel like going out on the town. Apply more liberally than usual, the black is going to mute it out.

    Illuminator X Eyeshadow: A nice, light pinky lid is perfect for this look. Try keeping a clean eye and adding drama with exaggerated liner.

    Mrs. Coffee Eye Liner: Mixing neutrals is always a go, and this is a really subtle way to do it. Depending on your preferred level of drama, apply as thick or thin as you want. Our fave? Really thick with a bit of a wing.

  • Face Sculpting with Everyday Minerals Powders

    Of course, different products will be appropriate for highlighting/contouring for different skin tones. Here's a list of products to use based on your skin depth. This is for subtle face sculpting. If you'd prefer a more dramatic look, try choosing the shades a skin tone deeper than your own. EM User below is using tones for Light to Medium Skin.
    Medium to Dark Skin: Everyday Bronzer/ Natural Lucent Powder
    Artist Tip: Remember to Apply enough of the product to see an exaggerated application on the skin, then blend, blend, blend using a Kabuki brush.

    CHEEKS
    Step 1: Use the Angled Kabuki Brush and the Poised to Perfection Skin Tint and apply a tiny amount to the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion.

    Step 3: Apply the Poised to Perfection Skin Tint to the hollows of your cheeks under the cheekbone.
    Step 4: Dust a light layer of the Finishing Dust along your cheekbones to set the look.
    NOSE
    Step 1: To create the illusion of a narrower bone structure on your nose, use the smaller end of the Double Ended Angled Blush & Mineral Brush to apply a thin line of Sheri's Radiant Creation Lucent Powder. For a more dramatic sculpt, add Poised to Perfection Skin Tint on the sides of the nose.
    Step 2: Use the Angled Kabuki Brush to blend.
    FOREHEAD

    Step 1: Minimize the appearance of a wider forehead by using the Double Ended Angled Blush & Mineral Brush to apply a bit of Sheri's Radiant Creation Lucent Powder to the center of the forehead.

    Step 2: Apply Poised to Perfection Skin Tint on your temples and gradually blend outwards towards your hairline, moving upwards subtly along the upper forehead to create dimension.

    Step 3: Use Angled Kabuki Brush all over to blend.

    JAW/CHIN

    Step 1: Apply Sheri's Radiant Creation Lucent Powder under your chin and blend along the underneath of your jawbone.

    Step 2: Use the larger side of the Double Ended Angled Blush & Mineral Brush to apply Finishing Dust to the upper part of your jawbone, blending downwards along your neck.

    Step 1: Apply Come Hither Eye Liner with Even Eyeliner brush thickly onto your top lash line. Use the remainder to line the bottom of the lash line.

    Artist Tip: Uneven line? Don't worry. We are going to smudge it out anyway.

    IMG_4388

    Step 2: Apply Mrs. Coffee Eyeshadow with Eye Smudge brush over top of liner in an exaggerated line across the eye. Repeat step with bottom lash line. Again, don't worry if the line isn't perfectly straight. We will blend later.

    IMG_4391

    Step 3: Apply I Fancy You Eyeshadow all over the lid and into the crease with the Eye Blending brush. Blend together with darker shadows to look natural, so the darkest shades are closer to lash line, and they gradually fade to lighter at the top. Apply Electric Sanctuary Eyeshadow underneath the brow bone and into the tear duct to highlight.

    Artist tip: Want more drama? Layer the darker shades to achieve more intensity. Work darker shades into the crease for the most intense eye.

    Step 2: Apply either Joy Eyeshadow or I Fancy You (Used here) Eyeshadow all over lid and up into the crease using Everyday Eyeshadow Brush.

    Artist Tip: Re-dip the brush and work the color into your crease. This will give definition without looking heavy or requiring another color

    KKP_9667

    Step 3: Apply Come Hither Eyeliner along the top lash line using the Even Eyeliner Brush.

    Artist Tip: Keep your eye open and look down into a mirror to apply your eye liner. This will allow you to push the color directly into the lash line, making sure there is no gap between liner and lash. Wet brush before applying for a more dramatic line.

  • Banish Redness in a Flash!

    Redness can be hard to control, especially in the winter months. Luckily, there are a few easy products that are simple to use that hide redness while still looking natural. Here are the best bets for keeping your flush where you want it.

    redness_before

    Mint Color Corrector: Definitely our most popular redness correcting product, it is a fan favorite for pros and beginners alike. Start with a clean face and apply all over, starting in the center of the face where you have the most redness, with the Kabuki Brush, or in hard to cover areas with the Oval Concealer Brush. Finish with the foundation of your choice to make it skin tone correct. Have a darker skin tone? Use Sage Carnauba Concealer instead.

    redness_after

    Sunlight Finishing Dust: Dust all over the face after foundation to set makeup and take away redness. It has a sheer coverage, so it will be a much more natural look. Skin will look bright and refreshed and any redness will be toned down.

    1. Can you tell us a little about the inspiration behind the song?
    Mark and I went into the studio with an idea of where we wanted to go with the track, but basically let loose after that. We didn't set too many boundaries for the direction of the song.
    2. How would you describe your beauty style in relation to your music? Are there any themes you follow that help define your style?
    I would say a common theme in my style in general - whether in beauty, music, or anything else - is simple but bold.
    3. What is your favorite color palette right now and how do you use those colors with your look and with your art?
    As far as my makeup goes I usually keep it simple with earth tones and black liner. I guess this relates to my taste in music, as I'm very drawn towards dark, organic sounds.
    4. We are so thrilled to be collaborating with you in such a creative way, can you tell us future past or present someone that you’d love to collaborate with?
    Wehbba or Maetrik/Maceo Plex. Both producers have impeccable skills production-wise, and their style is right up my alley.
    5. We believe all women are artists by nature, and love to hear about personal achievements in a creative lifestyle, can you recall when you first realized that you were inspired to perform and create music?
    My mom is a musician, so I've been exposed to music since I can remember. I think my "aha" moment was when I saw a DJ live for the first time. I had been in love with electronic music for so long, but hadn't yet started going out to clubs or festivals. I had no idea there was this scene where people would come together on such a large scale and dance for hours. Experiencing that for the first time was surreal - It drove that seed that had already been planted years before even deeper.
    6. What are your favorite beauty products for when you are on the road or even during your performance?
    A strong, dark eyeliner and lightly tinted, hydrated lips.
    7. Do you have any helpful words or advice you can give to other women who want to further pursue the arts? 
    Figure out exactly what you want, and then apply yourself 110%. No one wants your dreams fulfilled as badly as you do. And don't give up when things get difficult, that just means things are about to get really freakin' amazing.
    Here's a link to her new single. Check it out and love her as much as we do.

  • Ingredient Spotlight: Bamboo Brushes

    Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 1.05.42 PM

    What we put into our products is very important to our way of life, and we know that it's important to you too. So we're giving you some insider info on our how our products are made, where and how we get our materials, and how we are working together to keep the Earth a green and healthy place. We'll call this series our ingredient spotlight, so you can know what you're getting and where it's coming from. This week, we're going to focus on bamboo, used to create our award-winning makeup brushes.

    Bamboo brushes are an effective way to provide a sustainable, inexpensive, quality product. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant on earth. It is found in diverse climates that range from hot tropics to freezing mountains, and has an extremely versatile and short growing cycle. When the branches are cut, the underground system of the plant remains intact and the plant quickly sends up new shoots. Bamboo is harvested three to five times a year instead of the typical 20 to 50 years of its wood counterparts, making it completely sustainable!

    All of our ingredients are purchased from small-scale producing groups. Carina travels worldwide, personally visiting suppliers to trace the ingredients, meet the growers, and ensure care for the environment and fair working conditions and wages.

    Everyday Minerals is completely cruelty free, and all of our suppliers take the pledge as well. Learn more about our no-testing policy here. That adorable blue heron pictured above is part of our Wildlife Rescue project.
