5-Minute Face Look #1
- Friday, 05 June 2015 09:47
We’re excited to share some of our favorite 5-minute makeup looks with you through this new feature! A 5-minute face is a look you can apply in a matter of minutes and requires less than 5 products to execute.
Our first look is meant to highlight your skin’s natural glow! This is a great look when you are on the go—on mornings that require a snooze hit (or two), or after yoga class when you’re meeting friends for coffee. Our favorite tip for looking put together in a hurry is to keep skin natural, and tie your lips and cheeks together with color! For this look we used two of the products featured in our recent post about coral!
Start by applying our Universalist Multi-Stick 7 on the apples of your cheeks and gently blend upward into skin with fingertips. Next, dust your face with our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder. It offers invisible coverage and a radiant, soft-focus effect that blurs fine lines and softens skin imperfections. It adjusts to suit any skin-tone and creates a flawless complexion without fuss. Layering your blush underneath the Bio Brightener helps it look like you are glowing from within, and allows the flush of color from the Universalist Multi-Stick to look very natural.
Use an eyeshadow brush to work some of the Bio Brightening Invisible Powder into your lashes. This is a great trick to get your lashes to look super thick! Top lashes with two coats of our Expressionst Mascara (back in stock soon!) for lashes that are big and fluffy! We’ve loaded this formula with pure mineral pigments that create the blackest of black.
Finish this look with a quick swipe of our Bio Extreme Lipgloss in Grapefruit for melon-colored lips that are rejuvenated with our peptide complex and and hydrated to the max with coconut oil!

A large, juicy slice of watermelon and the smell of strawberries ripening on the vine are two of my most vivid summer memories from childhood. Perhaps these recollections are why melon and berry hued shades tend to make their way into my beauty routine when summer approaches.
Coral should be easy and breezy — just like a summer day. It’s a shade that tends to be universally flattering and doesn’t need to be over-thought. Unlike selecting the perfect shade of teeth-whitening red, coral is more forgiving. I tend to favor corals that are more pink than orange and suggest this for most skin tones.
W3LL PEOPLE has developed several products in shades of coral that are free of cruelty, parabens, petrochemicals, glycols, silicones, sulphates, artificial dyes, artificial fragrance, GMOs and nanoparticles. Try out our no nasties makeup in this season’s hottest color with our Universalist Multi-Stick No. 7 (pictured, $34.50). No. 7 is a bright peony shade that washes cheeks with chemical-free color. For lips, our coconut-oil packed Bio Extreme Lipgloss in Grapefruit (pictured, $23.50) uses a state-of-the-art peptide complex to rejuvenate lips while it volumizes and soothes. If you prefer a balm or stain, you might tend toward our Nudist Colorbalm 1 ($19.50) which will give your lips a beautiful coral glow while providing nourishing hydration with omega oils and aloe. Bring the coral trend to your eyes in a subtle and complementary way with a few swipes of our Elitist Eyeshadow Powder 814 ($16.00).
