If the colder weather and longer nights were a palette – the Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette would be it. Dramatic and decadently jewel-toned, it’s candlelit rooms with tufted parlor chairs, prosecco by the fire, and velvet gowns. Well, at least that’s the (almost) winter vision we’re sticking with ;)
In this blog, we’re showing you how to create three looks to invoke that feeling of cold weather glamour into your life (and onto your lids)!
Every shade has a little (or a lot) of shimmer, sparkle, metallic, or duo-chrome glitz. No mattes, no subdued shades, just rich, gemstone drama. This palette is for your indulgence - to spend many blissfully impractical hours calling forth the creative artistry within.
Like every Āether Beauty palette, the Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette is completely sustainable, fully recyclable, 100% vegan and cruelty-free, crystal-infused, buttery smooth, and full of non-toxic, skin-nourishing, organic ingredients like:
Organic Moringa Oil
Moringa oil contains vitamin A to help build collagen, vitamin C to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and vitamin E to help heal and prevent inflammation.
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil
Antioxidant-rich vitamins A and C boost radiance, combat discoloration and sun damage, and work to encourage healthy collagen production.
Organic & Fair-trade Coconut Oil and Shea Butter
This moisturizing, skin-softening duo helps seal in moisture, reduce inflammation, and calm redness.
We named this the Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette for a reason! This palette is infused with 6 different crystals: Diamond, Amber, Sapphire, Topaz, Amethyst and Tourmaline. Each crystal adds a different facet of shine, luminosity, and spirit-healing energy:
Known to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, diamonds also activate the crown chakra – opening the mind and spirit to infinite possibility, imagination, and creativity.
Amber contains succinic acid - a powerful antioxidant that helps fight the damaging effects of free radicals on your skin. For your spirit, amber absorbs negativity, enhances feelings of self-worth, and stimulates creativity.
A calming crystal, Sapphire helps soothe and hydrate the skin. Considered one of the most sacred stones, sapphire helps you connect with and express your truth.
Topaz releases tension from the face which can cause premature aging. It's the stone of creativity and abundance, helping to bring your highest intentions to life.
A truly skin-soothing stone, amethyst emits infrared rays that help calm redness, inflammation, and help prevent bacteria growth. Just as purifying for your spirit, amethyst neutralizes negative thoughts and helps release anxiety and stress.
Tourmaline helps energize the skin, giving it a radiant and youthful glow. Tourmaline also acts as a ‘psychic shield’, transforming low-vibe energy into positive, creative action.
An innate aristocrat, she’s secure in her originality and knows her own worth. Tourmaline, amber, and diamond infusions deflect low-vibe energy, strengthen confidence, and help channel creativity and imagination.
How to create this look:
This look says swathed in silks and covered in crystals - it's unique and enigmatic. Amber and sapphire infusions inspire acceptance and expression of your authentic truth.
How to create this look:
An all-metallic, mixed-metal look that takes gilded to a modern place. Amber, topaz, and diamond infusions unlock creative inspiration, call forth abundance, and open our minds to infinite possibilities.
How to create this look:
As a highlight: this is the palette of shine, so of course, there are a few MAJOR options for a #lit highlight! Experiment with the shades ‘Moonlight’, ‘Diamond’ and ‘Topaz’ along the cheekbones, in the inner corner, along the bridge of your nose, under your brow bone, and atop your cupid’s bow.
As an eyeliner: for smoky, sultry definition, try applying the shades ‘Intuition’ or ‘Recharge’ with a thin angled brush on upper or lower lash lines. Dip your brush in water first for next level pigment and shine!
If you love this palette but it’s not in your budget at the moment, you can split the price into 4 payments with our new Afterpay option! #shinenowpaylater

Even though most of us were stuck at home 24/7 this year, beauty was still very much alive. Lockdown (and possibly boredom) awakened our creativity and we experimented with everything eyes, perfected our zoom meeting glow, and took ah-maazing care of our skin (plus gave it a much need break from foundation).
Now in 2021, with many of us still living the lockdown (or semi-lockdown) life, we’ll keep upping our beauty game whether it’s paired with pyjamas or actual go-outside ensembles.
A month-long compassion challenge, Veganuary is your chance to try out the vegan life for the month of January. While it started with just food, Veganuary is broadening its horizons to include vegan beauty, skincare, and fashion. Keep reading to find out:
The first new moon of 2021 falls in the steadfast, tireless, goal-oriented sign of Capricorn. As a cardinal earth sign, Capricorn is the initiator of projects – always presenting groundbreaking new ideas, and working hard to bring them to fruition.
New Moons are a time for recharging, resetting, and planning for the month ahead. It’s a time of new beginnings and direction changes. With Capricorn in charge this month, we’re inspired to #makeithappen, achieve our goals, and lay the groundwork for our future.
