All the Fall Feels…Our W3LL Spice Fall Essentials Look

Monday marked the first official day of fall—woot! And while we’ve been figuring out how to adjust our skincare routines with the adjusting temps, we’ve also been patiently waiting for autumn to arrive so that we can indulge in some of our favorite fall looks. Fall brings feels of warm hues and simple muted tones for everyday wear, while also deep, bold colors for when you want to up the drama. 

We called on W3LL PEOPLE co-founder and cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Reneé Snyder, to model our glowing fall look and decided to make her gorgeous eyes the focal point. Taking cues from fall foliage and that flushed glow that comes from sitting near a cozy fire, here are the makeup essentials we use to get our W3LL Spice look: 

  • Nudist Eyeshadow Palette 1
  • Hypnotist Eyeliner in brown
  • Expressionist Volumizing Mascara in black
  • Nudist Multi-Use Stick in nude peach 
  • Bio Extreme Lip Gloss in afterglow 

Our Nudist Eyeshadow Palette in 1 is the quintessential autumn palette, boasting rich, taupe-based hues that blend nicely and can create both minimal or dramatic aesthetics for the eyes.

Step One: For the base, sweep the color “Bone” all over the eye. Step Two: Smudge the color “Chile” to create a bolder, more bronzed sheen where the lashes meet the eyelid. Putting such a deep hue near the eyes really makes them pop!

 Step Three: Next, apply “Adobe” along the crease of the eyelid and move downwards to meet with Chile at the lash line. This soft taupe blends the other two shades together nicely for a more natural look. Step Four: Use the shade “Saddle” to tie the different shade gradients all together. Where our previous colors “Chile” and “Adobe” meet, lightly press “Saddle” across the lid and blend together until there are no defining lines of color. Want some extra sparkle for a special occasion? Pat “Luminaria” onto the brow bone and blend down.

 Step Five: If you want a more amplified eye, apply one of our Hypnotist Eye Pencils halfway across the lower lash line and the upper lash line. Then using the W3LL PEOPLE Angled Eye Brush, blend the liner into the eye lid for a more smudged and lived-in look. We used the color brown because...fall! Step Six: More than other seasons, fall is a time to get dramatic with eyes! We love to play into this with BIG, thick lashes using our brand new Expressionist Volumizing Mascara, which gives major length and color to lashes without clumping.

 Step Seven: Feathered, bushier brows are our favorite in the fall, mostly because it suggests that yes, it’s probably cold and we’re not focused on making sure all of our body hair—including our brows—are perfectly managed when we’re just trying to stay warm and cozy throughout the season. Lightly sweep Expressionist Brow Gel across the eyebrow in the direction it grows to create a fuller, still natural brow. Step Eight: To create that fall-flushed glow, apply our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick in the shade “Nude Peach” across the apples of cheeks to capture an effortless blend of soft, naturally flushed hues.

 Step Nine: We like to set this makeup look with our Bio Brightening Powder, which has a soft, translucent hue that creates the subtlest highlight on facial angles. So pretty outdoors in the fall sun or indoors in the candlelight of a dinner party! Step Ten: We’re back to our beloved Nudist Multi-Use Cream stick to finish the look. Take the same shade, Nude Peach, and dab it onto the lips for a flushed tone and then apply our Bio Extreme Lipgloss in the shade “Afterglow” for a soft, peachy pout. Renee’s got that Autumn glow!

Eye Love You in the Nude

nudist-launch-image-2

The rumors are true! You may have spotted our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes floating around Instagram, or perhaps in the natural beauty aisle at your local Target — where they were available exclusively up until now!

Today we are launching our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes on our own channels, and are so excited for you to experience first-hand all the love, innovation, and good-for-you ingredients that we have packed into each one of these dreamy hues.

What’s different about our palettes, and why should you make the switch to nontoxic eyeshadows? Conventional eyeshadows can contain harmful preservatives such as formaldehyde, or nasty ingredients like aluminum powder or talc. Our Nudist Eyeshadow Palettes are completely safe, healthy, and nontoxic, along with being vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, and created using sustainable energy. They are formulated using a proprietary blend of beautiful botanicals and treat your sensitive eye area to a dose of organic grapeseed oil, organic jojoba seed oil, and organic rosemary oil. Their gorgeous, good-for-you formula goes on smooth, blends easily, and never looks chalky.

Inspired by the Rocky Mountains of Northern New Mexico, the collection currently offers two palettes featuring 5 plant-based, velvety shades that are rich in color while touting serious staying power and superior blendability.

The two palettes work together to create a dreamy collection of 10 shades that work for all eye colors and complexions, to provide you with a full range of shades that create a variety of subtle and dramatic looks — all without the use parabens, sulfates, crappy fillers, or harmful ingredients.

3 Green Beauty Products to Buy First

3 Nontoxic Beauty Products to Buy First: switching to healthy makeup | W3LL PEOPLE

Why not kick off the New Year with a refreshed beauty routine that is healthy, non-toxic, and good-for-you? Removing toxic products from your beauty routine can seem a bit daunting at first, but our goal at W3LL PEOPLE is to make clean, healthy beauty simple and hassle-free. We recommend starting slow, and replacing the items that are used most frequently, are the most toxic, or come into the most contact with your skin or sensitive areas. When asked which products to swap out first, these are the four products our experts recommend replacing ASAP:

  1. Foundation – Our skin is our largest organ, and it can quickly absorb what we put on it. One of the first products you should swap for a clean alternative is your foundation, because it typically covers the most surface area, making you most prone to toxic absorption. W3LL PEOPLE offers you four options in foundation products so that you can select the product that provides the coverage and finish you desire (left to right): Altruist Foundation Powder, Bio Base Baked Foundation Powder, Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer, and Narcissist Foundation Stick. For an in-depth look at each foundation’s benefits check out our Foundation Guide. For help selecting the perfect shade, visit our Foundation Selector.3 Nontoxic Beauty Products to Buy First: switching to healthy makeup | W3LL PEOPLE
  2. Mascara – Switching to a nontoxic mascara should be a high priority for all of us. Not only do most conventional mascaras contain coal tar, but they can also contain other nasty ingredients that are drying and damaging to your natural lashes. Our Expressionist Mascara not only comes with a clean ingredient deck, but it also comes with the added benefit of plant-based ingredients like castor seed oil and sunflower seed oil, which help promote lash health and growth. We’ve combined an incredible formula with a state-of-the-art rubble-bristled wand that helps lengthen, define and curl your lashes. You won’t miss your toxic mascara for a second, we promise!3 Nontoxic Beauty Products to Buy First: switching to healthy makeup | W3LL PEOPLE
  3. Lip Products – We don’t have to remind you of how much lipstick the average woman consumes in her lifetime, do we? Okay, we’re going to: it’s upwards of 4 pounds or more! Obviously, the products that go near our mouth should be nontoxic and as close to consumable as possible. W3LL PEOPLE offers four versatile lip products that provide you with varying levels of coverage, powerful pigments, and botanical formulas that outperform their toxic competition (left to right): Bio Extreme Lipgloss (Nude Rose), Optimist Lipstick (Om Yeah), Nudist Lip Butter (Cherry), Nudist Multi-Use Stick (Nude Rose).

If you’re feeling “stuck” on where to start with your green beauty transition, we hope that this post will give you a gentle nudge in the right direction. We know that you will be blown away not only by the performance of our nontoxic products but also by the way they nourish and improve your skin, that you’ll be happy to swap out each product in your makeup bag! Make sure you’re following along with us on Instagram, @W3LLPEOPLE, this month as we share more tips and tools for making the switch to clean beauty.

The Power of Pearl Powder

The Power of Pearl Powder: the health benefits of pearl powder in skincare and cosmetics | W3LL PEOPLE

Hold on to your makeup bag, natural beauties, because we’ve got some exciting news! W3LL PEOPLE is infusing luxurious Freshwater Pearl into our cosmetics to boost radiance and collagen production!

Crushed Freshwater Pearl Powder can now be found in our supercharged Altruist Foundation Powder, Narcissist Foundation SticksRealist Setting Powder, Bio Bronzer Powder and Bio Brightener Invisible Powder. This lustrous ingredient is sustainably sourced and is packed with age-defying benefits for your skin.

Pearls have been prized for centuries as adornment, but did you know they have also been valued for their ability to condition and perfect the complexion? Precious Pearl Powder is nutrient dense and has been used for thousands of years in facial treatments across cultures in Egypt, China and Japan (the Geisha have long cherished pearl powder as one of their best kept beauty secrets).

All that sounds great, but is there any science to back up the ‘power of the pearl’? The answer is definitely yes! Pearls are a potent antioxidant that help restore your body’s super-critical enzymes and reduce peroxidation. Pearls also contain polysacchariddes, 17 amino acids, more than 30 trace minerals and vital proteins which help stimulate the body’s regeneration of collagen (which is what keeps your skin looking youthful). The science behind pearls is exactly why this natural wonder is now a key ingredient in our makeup collection.

If you loved our cosmetics before, you’re going to be stunned by these remixed and remastered formulas. Our pearl-packed makeup will improve your natural radiance and offer more therapeutic skin benefits than ever before. You’ll find them to be creamier, with beautiful satin finishes that leave your skin hydrated and glowing. Our favorite facet of pearl powder is it’s ability to create a subtle, soft focus effect that blurs lines and diminishes imperfections, naturally.

Do you believe in the power of the pearl? Try one of our newly improved products and see the results for yourself! Shop W3LLPEOPLE.com then share your experiences and reviews with us on Instagram @W3LLPEOPLE and using #BEW3LL.
