BACK TO BASICS

One of the core principles that I aim to live my life by is keeping things simple. Going back to basics is one of my favorite ways to incorporate simplicity and bliss into my routine, by sticking to products and practices that keep me feeling as light and fresh as possible.

My favorite way to go back to basics this month? Two of EM's shining star products that are so essential to my makeup routine. 

First we have the Pearl Finishing Dust, which provides a sheer touch of coverage and sets my look in a way that is understated yet so lovely. This finishing dust leaves my skin looking radiant and ready for the day ahead, while providing the most delicate hint of shimmer. 

 Its pearl-like qualities gives skin a glowy finish that is perfect for setting your look!

To apply, I use the Plush Mineral Brush, which is my go-to brush for a number of applications. It's perfect for all over coverage and is luxuriously animal friendly with the softest synthetic bristles you've ever felt! I love using this one to apply the finishing dust, since it feels so soft and soothing on my skin.

These two products have helped me come back to basics this spring, and give me that no-makeup look that you know I adore.

 I hope that everyone is having a beautiful day!

ROSE BEAUTY TIPS

Inspired by the beautiful new blushes from our Rose collection, we've compiled all of our rose beauty tips from around the office. Turns out, roses aren't just pretty to look at, there are tons of skincare benefits as well!

Shop the new blushes here

KKP_1232Clockwise from top: Primrose, Field of Roses, Tea Rose and Fresh Rose Blossom Blushes.

1. Roses are a great natural anti-aging tool.

FIlled with anti-oxidants and vitamins, roses are a great way to protect against harmful environmental factors, keeping your skin supple and healthy.

2. And the ultimate skin balancer.

Used as an emollient for dry skin, an astringent for acne-prone skin and an anti-inflammatory for sensitive skin, it covers all the bases to keep your complexion smooth.

3. Let's not forget about aromatherapy.

Stress has a direct effect on the look and feel of your skin. Using the relaxation benefits of breathing in Rose oils and fragrances can help keep your skin and psyche balanced.

Try these tips to incorporate roses into your beauty routine. 

A steam facial: Great for leaving skin looking hydrated and feeling clean, putting some rose oil and/or petals in a steam facial is the perfect way to relax and refresh after a long day.

Add a drop of rose oil to your daily moisturizer: It is intensely concentrated, so you will get major benefits from a small amount, plus the smell is divine.

Use rose water as a face tonic: It's safe and gentle and provides calming, soothing and moisturizing benefits, perfect for using on top of the rose blushes to keep skin looking supple and glowy.

Most people with tattoos are proud to showcase their body art whenever they get the chance. On the other hand, there are times when some might feel more comfortable hiding their ink from view.

Whether it’s a wedding, a job interview or a family reunion with a judgmental grandma, there are some rare occasions when it might not be ideal to flaunt a tattoo.

I’ve covered many a tattoo in my career, with brides-to-be being my most common clientele with this request. And while I highly recommend making an appointment with a professional the first time around (they can start you off with the right color palette, brushes and sponges,), anyone can temporarily cover their own ink with the right know-how and practice.

  1. The first step, is to prep the tattooed area with an alcohol wipe. This cleans the skin and removes any excess oil from the pores.
  2. Next, cover the area with a small amount of primer. Oil-free primer helps the color ‘grab’ better. 
  3. Once the foundation primer is dry, it’s time to start concealing the tattoo. Neutralizing a black outline is the trickiest part, because the black ink often turns blue. We advise sponging on a full-coverage concealer in a stippling (or dabbing) motion. Tattoo Camo makes a very good one. 
  4. The next step is concealing the first layer of concealer, so purchase one that matches your skin color. Sometimes having one lighter and one darker works even better, as they can blend for a more natural look.  
  5. Using a flat synthetic brush about 1/2-inch wide, pat a layer of skin-tone concealer on top of the full-coverage concealer. You’ll have to play with the colors to get the best shade and coverage.
  6. To set the makeup, apply an invisible loose powder with a Makeup brush, and remember to dab when applying. Do not brush back and forth.

It takes skill, but with the right products, tools and practice, it can be mastered. This method also works well for bruises and skin discolorations,”  And, depending on how long your cover-up needs to last, you can also use a setting spray to keep color from rubbing off on your clothes.

Once you've applied the complete cover-up, you must remember that you might not get the results you were hoping for on the first try; however, if you can’t afford a trip to a professional, don’t get discouraged. It does take time, so just experiment at home until you find the right colour match and blending method that work best for you. Then, attend that wedding, job interview or family reunion with confidence.

WHAT TO WEAR WITH THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS

We all know the LBD is never, ever going out of style, and we are very thankful for that. The great thing about neutral colors in your outfit, is that it's not only encouraged but even important to have a little bit of fun with color on your face. Here are a few products to make you stand out before a night on the town.

We love this simple tank dress from local fashion hub Beehive Boutique. Shop the dress and more online.

unnamed

Our Picks

Clockwise from top right

Calm and Collected Skin Tint: Black tends to make everyone look a bit sallow. Warm up your skin and get a nice glow by applying Calm and Collected Skin Tint all over, even onto the neck and chest. Prefer a matte finish? Try Poised to Perfection Skin Tint instead.

Girl Friday Blush: We love a nice pinky blush with a black outfit. And Girl Friday has just enough color to give you the pop you need to stand out. Plus, the name just makes you feel like going out on the town. Apply more liberally than usual, the black is going to mute it out.

Illuminator X Eyeshadow: A nice, light pinky lid is perfect for this look. Try keeping a clean eye and adding drama with exaggerated liner.

Mrs. Coffee Eye Liner: Mixing neutrals is always a go, and this is a really subtle way to do it. Depending on your preferred level of drama, apply as thick or thin as you want. Our fave? Really thick with a bit of a wing.

INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: EVERYDAY MINERALS BAMBOO BRUSHES

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 1.05.42 PM

What we put into our products is very important to our way of life, and we know that it's important to you too. So we're giving you some insider info on our how our products are made, where and how we get our materials, and how we are working together to keep the Earth a green and healthy place. We'll call this series our ingredient spotlight, so you can know what you're getting and where it's coming from. This week, we're going to focus on bamboo, used to create our award-winning makeup brushes.

Bamboo brushes are an effective way to provide a sustainable, inexpensive, quality product. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant on earth. It is found in diverse climates that range from hot tropics to freezing mountains, and has an extremely versatile and short growing cycle. When the branches are cut, the underground system of the plant remains intact and the plant quickly sends up new shoots. Bamboo is harvested three to five times a year instead of the typical 20 to 50 years of its wood counterparts, making it completely sustainable!

All of our ingredients are purchased from small-scale producing groups. Carina travels worldwide, personally visiting suppliers to trace the ingredients, meet the growers, and ensure care for the environment and fair working conditions and wages.

Everyday Minerals is completely cruelty free, and all of our suppliers take the pledge as well. Learn more about our no-testing policy here. That adorable blue heron pictured above is part of our Wildlife Rescue project.

THE PERFECT FLUSH: CHOOSING AND APPLYING CHEEK COLOR

The ideal cheek shade gives just the right amount of color, leaving you perfectly flushed in a naturally beautiful way. Use these tips for a flawless application.

IMG_9025

Warm vs Cool: The best way to choose the appropriate cheek color for yourself is to simply match one to two shades darker than the color that you naturally flush. If you tend to flush more pinky, rosy tones you want a Rosy, cool toned blush. If you tend to flush more peachy, tawny tones, you want a more Golden, warm toned blush.  More neutral tones can wear either or both. Shades listed below are from lightest to darkest.

Cool Tones: Wildflower HeavenGirl Friday, Wild Vines

Warm Tones: DaydreamSnuggleAll Smiles

Step 1: Always begin your cheek color application two-fingers width (or a wide brush handle) away from your nose. Get enough color on your brush, but press the powder down into the brush head and pat or tap off excess to get a smooth and even application.

IMG_1198

Step 2: Starting just below the highest part of the cheekbone brush up and back toward hairline, staying below the peak of the cheekbone and temple area. This will give you the perfect natural-looking flush.

IMG_4011

Step 3 (Optional): If you want to add a pop of color on the cheekbone, choose a brighter shade and brush just on the apples of the cheek before blending back to the hairline.

IMG_9074

*Avoid adding too much color and not blending enough below and above the cheekbone (see photo below.) While you don't want to specifically apply color here, blend the application out over the entire cheek, so it looks like a natural flush.

CONCEALER CORNER: CAMOUFLAGING DARK CIRCLES

before copy

Concealer can be tricky. And, as we generally want it to cover the most important and hard to disguise areas, it is important to choose the right one and apply it the right way. Follow the steps below to instantly cover and brighten darkness under the eye.

Cream vs Powder

First thing first, decide which formula you will need. As a general rule, oily areas need powder and drier areas will be best suited with a cream. The under eye tends to be drier than the rest of the face, so you will most likely need a creamy concealer for that area. Keep in mind that this formula is more portable as well, so it's great for spot touch-ups on-the-go. Always remember that you may need different concealers for different areas of the face or different times of year.

Step 1: Choosing and applying your Color Corrector stick

For maximum coverage disguising dark circles, start with a Corrector Stick in either a peach or rose undertone. Rose undertones tend to cover blue and purple darkness underneath the eye, while peach serves better to eliminate blue and green. Apply directly from tube, covering any area that appears dark from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye and all the way up to the lower lash line.

corrector 1

Apply enough of the product so that you can see it on the skin (lower left) and press in until it blends perfectly (lower right.)

Step 2: Choosing and applying your Creme Concealer stick

Choose a Creme Concealer color that is one or two shades lighter than your skin tone and apply on top of Corrector Stick over the entire under eye area, with the Oval Concealer Brush.

Set with Finishing Dust to lock into place, and your eyes will look bright and awake all day!

We've all been there... lack of sleep plus everyday stress equal dreaded dark under eye circles! When luxuriating on a lounge with freshly cut cucumber slices on your lids just isn't an option, don't fret. We've got you covered! 

Our MULTI-TASKING CONCEALER is one of my favorite products in terms of instantly eliminating dark circles. This concealer is ultra-versatile, and can camouflage a number of skin sins, from sunspots and broken capillaries to blemishes and - of course - tired looking eyes. This concealer is designed with extra pigment to instantly refresh under eyes. When my eyes look like they could use a little TLC, I start by wetting a washcloth with cool water and pressing the cloth against my eyes for 1-2 minutes. The cool water depuffs tired eyes and awakens the skin, which creates a nice foundation for you to apply the concealer. Just a few dabs is all you need for light-medium dark circles, add a bit more if your under eyes are seriously fatigued. I like to use my fingers to pat a bit of concealer on the skin under my eyes, and then blend with the OVAL CONCEALER BRUSH.

Voila! It suddenly looks like I awoke from a happy dream.

This tutorial will demonstrate the techniques to achieve that healthy radiant glow using our Everyday Minerals Bronzer and Natural Lucent Face Powder.

    Everyday Bronzer &
    Natural Lucent Face Powder

  • Blender Face Brush & Tapered Sculpting
    Brush 





 
  • STEP 1


    Begin with choosing the right tool for your Bronzer. There are several Everyday Minerals face brushes that will work, however, the Tapered Sculpting Brush, will be used in this tutorial.  This brush softly defines color to the contours of the face.
  • STEP 2


    Choose the right shade that looks best on your skin tone.  Our model, Stephanie, is wearing the Everyday Bronzer shade, which is our medium tan shade, for a sun kissed glow. Apply with the Tapered Sculpting Brush to the “hollows” of the cheek in a downward diagonal direction.  
  • STEP 3


    The Everyday Bronzer is also applied to the temples and forehead for a more radiant sun kissed glow.
  • STEP 4


    Next take the Blender Face Brushto sweep our Pearl Beige Lucent Face Powder to the high cheekbone area. This fluffy flat top shaped brush delicately applies brightening products like the Lucent Face Powders to the face. Tip: Gently stamp the product onto the high cheekbone with the brush for best results of application.
  • STEP 5


    When applying bronzer on the cheek, start at the hairline near the top of the ear, in case color is applied too strongly at initial application.  It will be easier to blend product at the hairline, where heavy color deposit can be easily softened to look unnoticeable.  Also, swirl and tap excess product onto the lid of the container for mess proof application.
  • STEP 6


    A healthy glow complexion is what every skin should look like! The Everyday Minerals Bronzer and Lucent Face Powder is the duo rock star to achieving that look!

As the summer months begin to heat up, it's a given that our skin will go crazy and shine will be out of control. An oily complexion is no fun! Oily eyelids can definitely be a bummer when all you are lusting for are dreamy, matte eyes. Don't fret, we've got you (and your lids!) covered. A quick fix that we've discovered works wonders is using just a dab of the Finishing Dust to prep fiercely fight against shine. Simply apply a touch of the dust with our Everyday Eye Shadow Brush prior to applying your eye shadow of choice, as it will work as a primer and combat oil in a flash. Once you've applied your shadow, add one final, light layer of the Finishing Dust to complete your look. Secret: this also tones down the sparkle of some of our super-shimmery shadows.

Everyday Minerals are proud to offer you not only a delicious assortment of cheek colors, but also a nice variety in terms of finish - ranging from matte to sheen and shimmer. Lately, I've been lusting after our matte blush shades... they can just give your cheeks the most subtle little hint of color that is so flattering and natural!
 
Our matte blush shades come in shades of pink, berry, tan, coral and plum, and are ideal to really make your look pop. Lately, my favorite way to wear our matte cheek colors lately is to keep all other colors neutral (on your eyes or lips) to let your cheeks shine. This keeps them the central focus of your makeup look - all eyes on you! I love a pale pink, almost nude, lip with a rich bronze eye shadow (like FREE AS THE WIND) and NATURE'S SWEET SIDE blush, or the pale earthy goodness of DAYDREAM blush with KNIGHT OF RIBBONS eye color and just a hint of clear lip gloss.
 
What would be your dream makeup pairing incorporating one of our matte cheek shades?

We all have those days when our skin leaves a lot to be desired. However, spot concealing can go a long way in completely covering up a variety of flaws, from dark spots to broken capillaries and acne. Our concealers refine your complexion naturally, and can also be used to contour and color correct problem areas. Imperfections are eliminated and your skin will look better than ever. We've gathered a few of our favorite tips to master the art of spot concealing, a few of which are quite sneaky - but we promise we won't tell if you won't!

Two of the most important things to remember when it comes to spot concealing are to start with less concealer than you think you need - a little goes a long way, and you can always layer on more later - and to dab, dab, dab! Dabbing the minerals onto your skin is the best way to apply concealer - don't rub it in! A few tips: we like to start by adding a little bit of concealer to our hand, and then swirl our brush into the minerals to grab them for the application. Gently dab the concealer onto problem spots by using a stippling motion, and then using a clean fingertip, dab the area that you applied the pigments to gradually blur the concealer into your skin. Once you've lightly covered all areas needed, apply your foundation as usual for an effortlessly even skin tone.

Application
On clean dry skin, apply Tattoo Camo Concealer paste to your tattoo (multiple layers may be needed). 

Gently cover with Tattoo Camo Setting Powder and shake off any excess.

Spray Tattoo Camo Magic Shield evenly on area about 25 cm to 30 cm from skin, creating a breathable, water and smudge resistant barrier

Removal
Simply use the oil free Tattoo Camo Remover Tonic on a cotton pad to wipe off

Helpful Hints
• Depending on the colours of your tattoo artwork, building up several layers of the concealer could be necessary to cover up the tattoo
• Smooth concealer paste over tattoo and blend edges with a sponge
• If necessary add an additional layer by using your fingertips, dabbing the concealer over the tattoo
• When completely dry, apply setting powder with a makeup brush. Shake or blow off any excess.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you are happy with the coverage of the concealer before applying the setting powder. 
Once you put the setting powder on you CANNOT put more concealer over the top of the powder as it sets the concealer and will ball up and come off the skin.

I go wild for a natural, minimal makeup look. To me, women are the most beautiful when they allow their inner beauty to shine :)

The “no makeup” look is a favorite of mine, and one that has taken me many years to perfectly accomplish. Eyes, in particular, are brightened when they simply have a subtle flash of natural looking shine and shimmer. It’s all about that transparent glow, radiant texture - very even and natural.

For eyes that are naturally illuminated, look no further than my magical array of barely-there eye shadows!

These earthy, light tones and sparkling nudes add just the perfect amount of polish to your eyes, without being too heavy or dramatic. Ideal for daytime :)

On the matte/pearl side, the following shades are my top picks:


FREEDOM - an earthy nude shade has a beautiful pearl luster to naturally illuminate your eyes.

CARDAMOM - like the sands of the beach with pearl like effects.

MY PLACE -  this sophisticated shade is a lovely deep taupe with beautiful brown undertones.




If you’re looking for an exciting dash of sparkly shimmer, the following shades are my top picks:

ALL SPICE - a soft neutral pink champagne laced with delicate white shimmer.

SPIRITUAL SHIMMER - a soft subtle white shimmers abound in this ever so wearable nude eye shadow.

JANE EYRE - a soft, demure pink beige with a hint of sparkle.




Just like with any eyeshadow, follow these simple application instructions for a look that is striking and glamorous.

1. Apply a sheer wash of eyeshadow to your crease, layering color should you prefer a bolder look.
2. Continue application to the outer corner and lower lashline.

I thought that it would be a fun project to customize a makeup look for each fabulous age group that uses Everyday Minerals, and hopefully - depending on what age group you currently find yourself in - you can make good use of my suggestions!

For the fantastic ladies in their 40’s, this is for you.

You’ve enjoyed the self-discovery and exploration of your 20’s, the confidence and sassyness of your 30’s, and are now in your 40’s. I’m all for makeup looks that embrace warm metallics such as bronze and copper in this stage of life - they can warm up your skin tone and are as glamorous as they are elegant. These shades can be paired with everything from a chic cocktail dress for a night out to a casual ensemble of jeans and flats on the weekend... their versatility is truly remarkable. I leave it to you to rock these shades, my wonderful 40’s gals!




FINISHING DUST - This magical dust is a shine-fighter that can be extremely useful for those who develop oily skin in their 40’s. This translucent powder serves to set your makeup and get rid of excess shine. 

EVERYDAY BRONZER - I don’t need to tell you that the prolonged sun exposure that you most likely experienced in your teens and 20’s was very damaging to your skin - in your 40’s, you know better. Fake it with this fab bronzer... it provides you with the appearance of a bronze goddess without the sun’s harmful rays!

ALL SMILES BLUSH - I love this rosy matte peach shade paired with any of the following metallic bronze/copper eye shadows!

I DO DECLARE EYE SHADOW - Like a steaming cup of cocoa on a cold day, this sparkling copper shade has rich dark brown hues that will warm up your eyes. 


MIDNIGHT MYSTERY EYE SHADOW - Coppery deep undertones with splashes of gold.

FLOURISH EYE SHADOW - A blossoming bronze latticework of glistening shimmer.

THE CAT’S MEOW


Cat’s have 9 lives, right? Well, I think that the cat eye makeup look should live forever.

I’ve always been a huge fan of sexy, matte black cat eye liner. It’s very Brigitte Bardot meets Kate Moss meets Cleopatra. The cool part about cat eye liner is that it can be done in soo many ways. From subtle to over the top!!

Sultry and seductive, cat eyes are just so good. Give me lashes and thick black eyeliner and I’m in heaven. It’s very 60’s but still so modern and chic. I was so happy to see if on the SS 12 runways of Giorgio Armani and Jonathan Saunders.

The best part? It’s super easy to do. All you need is Carina’s genius Black Eyeliner and you’re set. Just wet your eyeliner brush and then dip the tip of the brush into the minerals..instant liquid black liner. Amazing!!!!


Here are some cat eye photos to inspire you..love these.

Ps - keep your blog topic requests coming..leave comments with what you want to see!!

Love, Taylor

It’s a fact... every girl (me included!) wants to have glowing, naturally luminous skin. Unfortunately, due to things we can’t control like dirt in the air and free radicals, sometimes our skin looks less than stellar. Coming home after a long day and realizing your skin looks dull is just the worst! 

That is why my 
Lucent Face Powders are so amazing... they can instantly brighten and transform your skin in no time. My Lucent Face Powders are some of the most popular EM products, and minimize shine as they illuminate your skin. Their light reflecting properties will give you a radiant glow in no time! Which shade is your fave?



We have Pearl Beige (a neutral shade perfect for those with Fair to Light skin) andNatural (a perfect shade for those with Light to Medium skin tones), in addition to Wet Sand (a neutral sprinkle of shimmer that can be used on all skin tones) and Dusty Miller (a very pale peachy pink with a hint of sparkle that can be used on all skin tones). One of the most popular is Viki’s Radiant Creation, which was created by an Everyday Minerals customer and is a beige shade with a hint of sparkly pink that is perfect for Light to Medium skin tones. Or, if you’re feeling tickled pink, try Light Pink - just as the name says, it’s a luminous soft pink face color with a subtle shimmer. To test out the colours why not try our Glow Kit

The key to my Lucent Face Powders is where to apply them to provide the maximum amount of WOW! Through my experience, the following “face places” are the best to naturally create glowing skin:
  • Middle of forehead and temples
  • Inner corners of eyes
  • Along the center of nose and on the tip of the nose
  • Chin
  • Along the cheekbones
  • Along the jawline
These places will give your face definition and a natural contour. 

Another fab product? My 
Luminizing Sunlight Powder.



This product provides less shimmer and more anti-shine qualities... it’s yellow based mineral formula also conceals the appearance of redness and gives added subtleties of sheen. It’s totally translucent and is perfect to set your makeup!

Do you have any luminous tips to share, ladies?

What is Tattoo Camo?
Tattoo Camo is specially formulated to completely mask your tattoo, creating the illusion it was never there. Tattoo Camo masks all colors of the tattoo and does not harm or fade the tattoo. Made and packaged in the USA. 

Which shade is right for my skin tone?
Match Tattoo Camo shades to your skin tone, not to the colors of your tattoo. By using lighter and darker shades you create an invisible cover that masks your tattoo completely and looks absolutely natural. 

Shades from light to dark

TC #8 - the lightest color. - ivory
TC # 5 - slightly more color. - cream
TC # 2 - follows closely. - warm beige
TC # 12 - somewhat tanned. - sunkissed
TC # 15 - slightly more tanned. - walnut shell
TC # 19 - the most tanned. - almost cocoa


Why should I use different Tattoo Camo shades?
Using different shades enables you to make the cover lighter or darker, all according to the different nuances of your skin tone. You create a natural looking cover and nobody knows that there is a tattoo hiding under that cover!

How to apply Tattoo Camo?
Every Tattoo Camo Kit has an "Instructions" insert. These easy and simple to follow instructions make applying the concealer a hassle free procedure. After a quick application you are "Tattoo Free"!

Does it rub off?
Not with this easy smudge & rubbing off protection! And with just a few sprays of our Shield Spray mist and you are set for the day!. (Avoid eyes and mouth). This also helps with protecting your clothes. 

Is Tattoo Camo water & transpiration resistant?
Yes, it certainly is. Even swimming or bathing hardly effects it. Your tattoo will be covered the whole day. At the end of the day you simply wipe it off with our gentle, yet highly effective Remover Tonic.
It does not harm or fade your tattoo.

What is Remover Tonic?
This oil-free tonic gently and effectively dissolves all traces of your Tattoo Camo concealer. Dampen a cotton pad with the Remover Tonic and effortless wipe off the cover. All you are left with is a perfectly clean tattoo, with no oily residue. 

- Non Allergenic
- Oil Free
- Fragrance Free
- Suitable for all Skin Types
- Tattoo-Safe

Is Tattoo Camo only for tattoo coverage?
Tattoo Camo has also proven to provide excellent coverage for skin blemishes, scars, birthmarks, acne scars and old-age spots. For optimal satisfaction use a combination of lighter and darker shades. Watch our YouTube video link below to show you just how easy it is to cover birthmarks and blemishes with Tattoo Camo.
