W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Brow Gel

Are you ready to elevate your brow game, Brave Beauty? This week we unveiled our latest green beauty innovation, our collection of Expressionist Brow Gels!

A gorgeous, full, defined brow is the quickest way to accentuate your eyes, help your face appear more symmetrical, and quickly feel more polished and put together.  We dreamed of a brow product that did it all without being overly complicated, and this brow gel is the manifestation of every brow goal we’ve ever had.

It strengthens brows with cacao seed butter, conditions with shea butter, and nourishes with aloe, while simultaneously being a 3-in-1 grooming product that thickens, fills, and shapes your brows with just a few strokes. The plant-based, cream, wax formula delivers a boost of pigment and a soft, flexible hold that doesn’t get stiff, sticky, or flaky.

Of course, we didn’t stop with mind-blowing performance or plant-based power. This brow gel is also cruelty-free, vegan, EWG verified, gluten-free, GMO-free, and free of any crappy fillers or ingredients.

W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Brow Gel

To apply:

  1. Remove the wand from the tube, removing any excess product from the bristles.
  2. Brush into brows using short, upward strokes and allow them to set for 15-30 seconds.
  3. Finally, use the bristled wand to gently shape brows into place.

The All-Natural, Nontoxic Winter Survival Guide for Face, Skin, Body and Hair | by W3LL PEOPLE

Regardless of how great your skincare routine, it’s normal for your skin to feel a bit dull and lifeless in the depths of winter. The drier air, lack of vitamin D, and exposure to potentially harsh elements like wind and bitter temps can leave your skin dry, red, and in need of some extra TLC.

Dry winter skin is a head-to-toe issue, requiring head-to-toe solutions. We called in our team of Green Beauty Pros from our Studio in Austin, Texas, to help curate a collection of products that will get your entire body through the winter months.

See below for our team’s selections and what they love about them. The brands below are available for purchase through our Studio, you can reach them at 1-800-790-1563, Ext.1. Orders over $30 ship free! We hope this keeps you glowing until warm weather returns!

Plum Smoky Eye

W3LL Made: Creating a Plum Smoky Eye with W3LL PEOPLE's nontoxic cosmetics.

Hello Brave Beauties, it’s Shirley again with a quick tutorial and yet another incredible new product from W3LL PEOPLE to introduce you to!

I’m thrilled to reveal our Nudist Plum Eyeshadow Palette, which will be launching in the next few weeks. Our Nudist palettes each consist of 5 plant-based colors in either a Taupe or Plum range, that have a propriety blend of botanicals, giving each shade a creamy velvet texture, rich color, serious staying power and superior blendability. If you want first dibs on these incredible palettes you can click here and add your name to the waitlist. Our team will email you as soon as these babies are available!

Today I’m going to walk you through a super simple smoky eye look using the five nontoxic shades that are included in the Nudist Plum Eyeshadow Palette.

Nontoxic Tutorial: Creating a Plum Smoky Eye with W3LL PEOPLE's nontoxic cosmetics.

Start this look off by applying a base eyeshadow. This helps brighten the eye, even skin tone, and create a clean canvas that you can build upon. I used Rose Quartz, a soft delicate peony toned shade. The shadow is so silky that I used my finger to apply and blend! This helps create a natural, “lived-in” look with your base.

In the second step, I’m going to start smoking things up. To do this I’m using the Hypnotist Eyepencil in Black, which will create the perfect primer for a rich, smoky eye. You simply scribble the pencil directly onto your finger, and then gently tap it onto your upper lid similar to how you would apply a cream shadow. We’ve now created the perfect texture for the eyeshadow to adhere to. Don’t stress about achieving the most perfectly blended eye- we will be applying eyeshadow over this and it will smooth everything out.

Now it’s time to add dimension to this look. The Deep Amethyst shade in the palette is a delicate shimmering plum. It’s absolutely gorgeous! It has the perfect balance of shimmer and creaminess, creating the ideal satin texture. Press Deep Amethyst directly on top of the smoothed out black eyeliner. In doing so, you will notice that the shadow blends impeccably!  Really brightening and enlivening the darkness of the pencil.

The last step eyeshadow step is adding a pop of light! I’m simply blending in Aura, a shimmering rose, onto the inner corner of the eyelid. I love how this helps open up and brighten the eye. It glows but isn’t glittering.

Nontoxic Tutorial: Creating a Plum Smoky Eye with W3LL PEOPLE's nontoxic cosmetics.

Finish this smoky eye look with our Expressionist Mascara in Black. I chose to only focus on my upper lid, but if you love a good layer of mascara on the bottom lid- go for it!

If you’d like to convert this look into evening glam for an event or date, simply mimic the eyeshadow application on the bottom lid. Apply a thin smudged line of liner onto the bottom lash-line, and smooth it out with Deep Amethyst. Add a layer of our Expressionist Mascara, and you will instantly have the ultimate smoky eye!

Nontoxic Tutorial: Creating a Plum Smoky Eye with W3LL PEOPLE's nontoxic cosmetics.

Elevate your entire look by applying a quick swipe of highlighter and concealer. I apply a good amount of our Bio Brightener Stick to my cheekbone before I apply the Bio Correct Concealer (in Light). Once the highlighter is in place, I add a dab of concealer onto the inner half of the under-eye. I then blend both products together with my finger to create luminous coverage.

One of my makeup mantras is ‘choose your weapon’. This look clearly is about the eye, so I’m going to suggest that we keep the lips subtle with a layer of our Bio Extreme Gloss in Nudist. This gloss has natural peptides that plump the lips just enough to smooth them out and minimize fine lines, while this color adds dimension and shine without being too attention-grabbing.

You can watch me apply this entire look on our IGTV channel by clicking the link below or following us on Instagram @W3LLPEOPLE! We can’t wait to see this gorgeous look on you. Give it a try and #BEW3LL!

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.

YOU'RE PRETTY.
