GET THE LOOK: VDAY EDITION

GET THE LOOK: VDAY EDITION

February 13, 2020

Whether you're celebrating your love for yourself or for someone else this Vday, let's take this chance to bring a little crystal-infused love and light to our beauty looks! 

In an ode to all things love, we’ve put together a little collection of your most romantic looks using our three favorite love-inspired products:

  • The OG Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette
  • Our new Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter, and
  • Our new Radiant Ruby Lip Crème (available only at Sephora online)!

WHY WE LOVE THESE THREE FOR VDAY (AND ANYTIME YOU WANT TO ALIGN WITH THE ENERGY OF LOVE)

The Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone palette is universally flattering, irresistibly romance-toned, and infused with real Rose Quartz crystals. Rose Quartz is known as the ‘heart stone’ – it helps heal the heart chakra, allowing you to open your spirit to the energy of love. Rose Quartz also helps reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and redness. Not to mention the just-kissed luminous effect it has on your skin!  

The new Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter, with its rose gold hue, brings a glistening, ethereal glow just like the flush of a new flame (or that moment YOU realize you're perfect and deserving of your own love). Not to mention, it’s infused with real diamond powder – and what’s lovelier than diamonds?!

A super-hydrating blend between a full-color liquid lip and a buttery lip cream, our Radiant Ruby Lip Crème is a deliciously decadent, ruby-infused love letter to your lips. Rubies are known to stimulate the heart – awakening passion and love in your life. Available exclusively at Sephora online, it’s the full-color swipe of silky, love-filled drama to complete your Vday look!

And the icing on this love-themed cake: until Valentine's Day, you can get our new Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter for just $16 when you purchase our Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette. Use the code BEMINE at checkout!

THE LOOKS

MONOCHROME ROSE GLOW

For a romantic monochromatic look that feels almost bronzey, carry those gorgeous pink shades all over the face – on lids, cheeks, and lips.

HOW TO CREATE THIS LOOK

  • Apply the shade ‘Heartstone’ all over the lid and along the lower lash line.
  • Create a winged liner with the shade ‘Scorpio’. Start in the middle and wing it out, creating a fairly thick line. Keeping eyes open, follow the wing to the upper lid to create a triangle on the outer corner. Blend to soften the edges.

For that all-over-glow, dust our Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter along your cheekbones and under the brow bone.

VINTAGE STARLET

For a 1920s sultry starlet vibe, take a page out of Magdalene’s art deco beauty book. She’s wearing:

  • Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette on her eyes
  • Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond highlighter on her cheekbones
  • Radiant Ruby Lip Crème in 'Inspire'- available only at Sephora online.

AN ARIANA GRANDE VDAY

What would Ariana Grande do? Well, definitely this half-up style, and maybe these mauvey pinks! Kelly wears our Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette, and for a similar all-over glow, try our Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter! 

HOW TO CREATE THIS EYE LOOK

  • Apply the shade 'Reawakening' all over the lid, blend well.
  • Swipe the shade 'Aura' along the crease.
  • Apply the shade 'Divine' in the center of the lid.

NEXT-LEVEL NEUTRAL

Pinks and purples are the new black - who's with us?! Cool-toned shades can deepen and richen your own eye color while adding some can't-look-away interest to your eye look. Karina is wearing our Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette.

GROWN-UP PINK

When pink becomes sultry. For a grown-up take on the bubblegum pink look, smoke out your shadows and add a deeper, mauvey lip for drama. Susan wears our Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone palette on the eyes, and for a similar lip (with some shine), try our Radiant Ruby Lip Crème in the shade ‘Protect’ – available only at Sephora online.

ALL IS BRIGHT

Capture all the light and love with a bathed-in-radiance stardusted highlight. Oh, and maybe a magenta lip and romantic rose lid to bring it all together. Maria wears our Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter.

For a similar eye look, try our Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette, and if you’re all about that statement Magenta lip, you’ll love our Radiant Ruby Lip Crème in the shade ‘Passion’ – available only at Sephora online.

SUBTLE IS SEXY

For that softer ‘I’m in love’ look, keep everything simple and subtle – a slight cat eye, a touch of mascara, brushed up brows, and of course a light-reflecting glimmer of Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter along the planes of your face.

ALL OUT GLAM

If you're feeling #extra, dial up the glam all the way with a metallic purple eye look and a strawberry red lip! On her eyes, Vida is wearing shades from three of our eyeshadow palettes:

From the Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette, she's wearing the shades 'Heartstone' and 'Stardust'. 

From the Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette, she's wearing the shades 'Sandstone', 'Amethyst', 'Amber', 'Moonlight', and 'Energy'.

And from the Summer Solstice Palette, Vida's wearing the shades 'Balance', 'Intrinsic', and 'Ruby'.

GIMME THE GLOW

Nothing says romance like a gorgeous rosy cheek, a sultry smoky eye, and glossy nude lips. To create this look, Lauren used our Summer Solstice Palette on the eyes and our Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter along her cheekbones, down the nose, and in her cupid's bow.

LOOK-AT-YOU LIP

A bright red lip, but make it fashion. Enter a neutral smoky eye, a subtle dusting of rosé highlight, and a strawberry red statement lip – voila, romance made chic. Reagan’s wearing:

  • Supernova Crushed Pink Diamond Highlighter
  • Radiant Ruby Lip Crème in 'Inspire' – available only at Sephora online.

PINK FOR PRESIDENT

Pink is the new neutral – are we right? For a subtle, champagne pink vibe, try Crystal’s easy look using the Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette. 

HOW TO CREATE THIS LOOK
  • In the crease, use the shade 'New Moon'.
  • Apply the shade 'Balance' in the outer corner and blend all over the lid.
  • Swipe the shade 'Citrine' along the brow bone and inner corner of the eye.

I DON'T DO SUBTLE

For a more dramatic (and #seriouslylit) Vday look, douse yourself in our Supercharged Crushed Diamond Highlighter. For a similar eye look, embrace those metallic and duo-chromes pinks in your Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette (Divine, Reawakening, Aura, and Heartstone).

Plastic Free July Amid COVID
Plastic Free July Amid COVID

July 02, 2020

While COVID has had some positive effects on the environment (cleaner air and clearer waters), it’s had the opposite effect on plastic usage. With many grocery stores banning reusable bags and containers, and coffee shops like Starbucks rejecting reusable cups, plastic use is at an all-time high. Not to mention, many areas that previously banned single-use plastic have lifted their bans during coronavirus. Plus, we’re all using plastic-laden, disposable PPE at an inconceivable rate.

So, what can we do? Can we bounce back from this? And how big is the problem really? While a completely Plastic Free July probably isn’t possible during COVID, we can arm ourselves with tips and truths to choose better and bounce back from the plastic pandemic when this is all (blessedly) over.

PRISON LABOR IN THE US & CHINA: IS YOUR MAKEUP MADE BY PRISONERS?
PRISON LABOR IN THE US & CHINA: IS YOUR MAKEUP MADE BY PRISONERS?

June 26, 2020

Look up prison labor and you’ll find a whole host of different opinions – some say it’s a chance for inmates to acquire new skills and knowledge, which can lead to employment once they finish their sentence. The vast majority of accounts though, describe prison labor as essentially ‘slave labor’ – unpaid or incredibly low-paying forced labor, exploiting inmates.

How is this relevant to the beauty industry? Many private companies, including beauty and fashion brands, use or have used prison labor, though most of us have no idea it’s even happening. Just like with sustainable sourcing and child labor, it’s essential to know how our products are being made so we can make ethical buying choices.
