“I love Melon Satin Matte Blush for spring and it pairs perfectly with Orchid Pearluster Eyeshadow” -Candice, Customer Care

“The Gaia Collection is so different for spring and I think that’s why I’m drawn to it. It’s strong and wearable, perfect for nights out.” -Hannah, Operations

“When I think spring I think of the shade green and Atlantis Pearluster Eyeshadow is a gorgeous wearable shade of green that I love to wear.” Charlene, Operations

Lotus Lip Tint is such a fun berry shade for spring. If I’m in a rush, I’ll dust on some foundation, mascara and then pop some Lotus on and it looks like a full spring look.”   – Alyson, Marketing

Sombra Contour Powder is the best mult-tasker for spring! You can use it to contour, add warmth to the skin, and also as an eyeshadow." – Kate, CEO

Tigereye Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow has to be my favorite because I wear it every single day!” – Karin, Operations

Get the Look: Gaia Spring Collection

Posted on March 12, 2014 by Alyson | 0 Comments

Greek mythology tells us that out of Chaos Gaia was born.  As the creator of the universe she is mother earth, and everything that exists in the world originates from her.  Gaia represents strength, power, creation, and maternal nurturing.  Inspired by this, we created a collection of strong earth tones.  Our Gaia Collection features two Limited Edition Eyeshadows, and our all new Limited Edition Radiant Finishing Powder. The eyeshadow in Chaos is a fiery copper, Celestial eyeshadow is a deep blacked gold, and Radiant Finishing Powder in Sacred is a soft glowing peach.  Together these shades create a strong and enchanting look.  Follow these simple steps to achieve this powerful look:

1. Start by applying a sheer layer of Satin Matte Foundation (Sara’s shade is Warm 1) using the #25 Foundation Brush.

2. With the #17 Blush Brush add just a touch of Satin Matte Blush in Carnation to the apples of the cheeks.

3. Lightly dust Radiant Finishing Powder in Sacred along the forehead, cheekbone and jawline; as you would with a bronzer or highlighter.  The #23 Kitten Brush is the perfect tool for the job, this way you will get a sheer glowing application.

4. With the #37 Eye Blending Brush sweep the Sacred Radiant Finishing Powder from the lash line to brow bone. This acts as a nice base and brow bone highlight.

5. Pick up a small amount of Chaos on the #39 Large Shadow Brush. Then work the shadow into the bristles, spritz with water, and pat the shadow onto your lid and into the crease.

6. Dampen your  #33 Angle Liner Brush with water and blend with Celestial to create a liquid liner.  Apply Celestial to the upper and lower lash line for intense definition.  Bring the line as close to your lashes as possible..  Extend the liner slightly past your natural lash line and wing it up for an eye widening effect.

7..  With the #36 Pointed Crease Brush blend (dry) Celestial along your crease, but concentrate the color along your outer crease.

8. Coat your lashes with several layers of Natural Definition Mascara in Black to add drama.

9. Finish the look with Rhubarb Lip Tint to moisturize and enhance your natural lip color.
