Mindfulness: A Practice

Posted on August 18, 2015 by Alima Pure | 0 Comments

Last week I received a phone call from a friend who had just walked out of a disappointing yoga class, more frustrated than when she stepped onto her mat and not relieved of the stress she had hoped to let go of. She couldn’t focus, she said. She was too aware of the bodies surrounding her and the accompanying heightened smells and sounds of breathing seeming to echo in her ears for the duration of the practice...

Perfect Pairings: Foundation Power Couple

Posted on July 28, 2015 by Alima Pure | 0 Comments

This week, put your best face forward with 20% off our award-winning Satin Matte Foundation as well as our bestselling foundation brushes, the #15 and #25. Match made in heaven, you say? Well, we designed it that way!

Perfect Pairing

#15 Flat Top Brush: The perfect brush for those seeking fuller coverage, the soft bristles of our #15 brush are densely packed and cropped flat across the top, making it ideal for delivering a heavier application. (It’s versatile, too. Color Balancing Powder wearers, this brush is for you!)

#25 Foundation Brush: Our classic foundation brush has soft, dense bristles to allow for natural coverage and sheer application of our mineral foundation. The slightly domed shape of the brush, paired with the finest, high-quality bristles, distributes powder evenly for a smooth, natural finish.

Soft, cruelty-free, and easy to use: simply pick up a small amount of foundation on your brush and tap into the lid of your jar, a small dish, or the palm of your hand to evenly work the powder into the bristles. Using downward strokes, lightly apply the foundation to the skin, adding more layers as needed for desired coverage.

These brushes and our foundation go hand in hand, and with 20% off there’s no better time to introduce one to the other for the ultimate makeup power couple.

Six Simple Steps for Healthy Summer Skin

Posted on July 23, 2015 by Alyson Hancock | 0 Comments

Limiting sun exposure is difficult to do in the summer, especially with all of the activities that accompany the season. Regardless if you are a hiker, a BBQer, a beach goer (or all three), combat sun damage and restore your skin with these simple steps to ensure your best skin this summer.

Healthy Summer Skin

Protect! This goes without saying, but sunscreen is vital to the skin any time of year, and especially in these months when the sun is the harshest. Even in those moments you don’t think to apply, like when out running errands, be sure to lather on a protective layer

Hydrate! Number one rule: drink water! In these hot summer days, you lose water faster than usual and with water making up over half of your body weight, it’s important to replenish before you become dehydrated.

Cleanse! Exfoliating one to three times a week will help polish your skin and remove dead cells to brighten your complexion. Combine with daily cleansing followed by moisturizing to help maintain your natural summer radiance. For deeper cleansing and added skin hydration, use a mask once a week. We love Tata Harper’s Deep Hydration Mask, but often a DIY mask does just the trick!

Soothe! Did you know your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it? Nourish and heal your skin with a natural moisturizer, or with one of our personal favorite after-sun remedies, coconut oil. The ultimate skin soother? Coconut oil mixed with Aloe Vera. You can practically hear your skin sigh upon application.

Exercise! Exercise increases circulation which helps to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Escape the heat to an air conditioned classroom or take your workout outside (wearing sunscreen, of course) and work up a sweat to benefit from one of the many advantages of exercising.

Sleep! Those precious evening hours are when your body repairs and restores itself the most. Take advantage!

And don’t forget to load up on antioxidants!

Go on! Grab your sunscreen, water bottle, and friends and make the most of your summer, safely.

DIY Tinted Moisturizer

Posted on July 16, 2015 by Alyson Hancock | 0 Comments

If you prefer a more sheer coverage while still wishing to enhance your natural skin tone, a tinted moisturizer is just the trick. It’s easy with this quick and simple DIY recipe. You will simplify your morning routine while hydrating and protecting your skin, and end up with a lovely, subtle glow.

The best part? You only need two ingredients: your Satin Matte Foundation and your favorite moisturizer.

DIY Tinted Moisturizer
Start by choosing a moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type – normal, oily, dry, or combination.

1.    Blend a bit of your Satin Matte Foundation into a few drops of your moisturizer. Start with a small amount so you can perfect the color as you build as needed.

2.    Continue to blend until you have your desired shade. Keep in mind, if you add more moisturizer, you will lighten the coverage. Adding more powder will allow the now tinted moisturizer to be more pigmented and heavier for fuller coverage.

3.    Using the #25 Foundation Brush, apply in light strokes all over the face and neck for a natural, dewy complexion; or simply apply as you would a moisturizer.

This easy DIY is also great with sunscreen for a tinted sunscreen with added protection!
