Prep and Prime Like A Pro! Makeup Artist Approved Skincare ✓

Ask any makeup artist and they will tell you that the key to a flawless application is making sure your skin is properly prepped. It’s important to incorporate skincare products into your ritual that smooth, calm and hydrate your skin for a balanced complexion and a blank canvas for makeup. Prepping your skin with the right formulas help your makeup to go on smooth, melt into your skin and look more natural (and last all day!).

A LIGHT-WEIGHT, ULTRA-ABSORBENT MOISTURIZER

If your skin is dehydrated and dry, your foundation will never sit properly on your skin. A crucial part of skin prep before foundation is a light-weight moisturizer that delivers deep hydration, but also fully absorbs leaving zero greasy residue. Our HYDRATING PETAL CREAM does just that. Pure Hyaluronic Acid and Hibiscus Peptides deliver daily moisture that leaves your skin balanced before applying makeup.

Celebrity makeup artist KINDRA MANN counts on this moisturizer [Hydrating Petal Cream] often to prep skin before applying makeup for her clients. “The intelligent ingredients in this moisturizer make it a standout face lotion that I will use again and again and again,” she says.

A PORE SMOOTHING, PRIMING SPF

Our innovative sunscreen, LUXURY SUN RITUAL, has become a cult-favorite among makeup artists for not only protecting the skin with SPF 30, but also beautifully blurring pores and priming your skin for foundation. Read what just a few of these talented artists had to say about Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30 and it’s pore smoothing, priming benefits

“I have never seen anything like it! This formula works beautifully as a pore smoothing primer that offers a blurring, soft-focus effect on makeup with SPF protection as well.” - ALLAN AVENDAÑO, Celebrity Makeup Artist

“It is an essential part of my kit — whether creating a look for the red carpet or a photoshoot, its an SPF that checks all the boxes. It’s clean, mineral, reef-safe, sheer and invisible. It’s like a second skin. It feels so amazing.” — RENÉE LOIZ, Celebrity Makeup Artist

“I love this SPF because not only does it protect you from harmful sun exposure it’s also great for blurring pores which makes it an ideal 2-in-1 makeup primer.” — KENDAL FEDAIL, Celebrity Makeup Artist

PRO-TIP FOR A GLOWING COMPLEXION

One of our favorite makeup artist tips for glowing skin comes from HEBA THORISDOITTR, head makeup artist for the wildly popular film Don’t Worry Darling. Heba mixed a few drops of our LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM into the foundation for actress Florence Pugh to give her a glowing complexion in the film. The perfect pro-tip for giving your skin a glowing boost when applying your foundation and infusing extra nourishing skincare into your makeup look.

DON’T FORGET YOUR LIPS

Have you ever gone to apply your favorite lipstick and your lips are dry, preventing smooth and evenly distributed color? Not ideal. Keeping your lips smooth and hydrated is the key to preparing them for other lip products.

Our Luxury Lip Oils double as both a lip-drenching dose of hydration and a subtle wash of color to either wear on their own or to moisturize your lips before applying lipstick. Makeup artist REBECCA HICKEY reached for our Luxury Lip Oils on set of The White Lotus Season 2, to give the actors luminous, hydrated lips worthy of a Sicilian vacation.

Celebrity makeup artist LISA AHARON loves our Luxury Lip Oils for “keeping lips hydrated to create the illusion of volume that can be lost with age.” She adds that they can also “help to smooth lips and fill fine lines.” 

Incorporating just a few powerful, effective formulas into your skincare ritual can prep and treat your skin for your most flawless, long-lasting makeup application yet. Taking the time to prep your skin makes all the difference.

The Best Clean Lipgloss and Why It's Worth the Switch

lip_gloss_cbd_clean_beauty

 

Lip gloss is one of the most toxic products found in a makeup bag. We’ve all heard and read about the harmful ingredients found in some lip products on the market like lead, carcinogens, mineral oil, and synthetics but what makes these even more toxic is that we put them on our lips. Any product you put on your lips, will be gradually ingested (that’s right, we eat it!) not purposefully, of course, but it’s unavoidable. If you are like us, you swipe on a gloss, balm or lipstick almost daily and re-apply multiple times a day. All this usage can add up to a significant amount of consumption and absorption into our bodies. Your lips are also a thinner tissue so some toxins are absorbed straight away.

When nutritionists and doctors tell us to try and eat natural foods, and to avoid ingredients you can’t pronounce—shouldn’t that also apply to what we put on our skin? The largest organ of our body? We think so. We know it’s hard to part with your cult favorite products and going full non-toxic can be a challenge. If you are going to start somewhere, start with your mouth. Clean beauty has made incredible strides in creating lip formulas that are not only safer, but truly perform. 

That’s why when we launched our first lip product, Luxury Lip Shine in 2019, it was essential that the formula was meticulously clean, with good-for-you, results-driven ingredients that were rigorously tested...and that we could pronounce. We turned to powerful florals to infuse every swipe with skin-loving nutrients that act more like a lip treatment, but are still comfortable on the lips, non-sticky, and provide a sheer wash of color.

We are proud to say that our Luxury Lip Shines have 8 non-toxic, vegan, simple but high-performing ingredients: Sunflower Seed Oil, Whole Flower Hemp Extract, Candelilla Wax, Shea Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis, Chamomile Extract, and Grapefruit Seed Extract. These antioxidant-rich ingredients make up our high-shine, silky gloss that glides on effortlessly. Each botanical serves a purpose as skincare for your lips. Sunflower, Chamomile and Aloe are calming while Shea and Jojoba are deeply nourishing.

Beauty editors rave about these special glosses. Luxury Lip Shine was named “Best Clean Lip Gloss” by Women’s Health. “This gloss glides on easily—no goops or globs, promise—and sticks to your lips (instead of your hair). Ingredients like aloe and sunflower act as a softening treatment too.”  Meet your new, favorite non toxic lip gloss.
