How To – Make Up Tips and Tricks

Sensitive Skin: All our products are ideal for sensitive skin because we use the minimal ingredients possible, and avoid reactive ingredients like bismuth oxychloride, talc, dyes and mineral oil.

Rosacea & Eczema: Our products are soft and soothing for Acne, Rosacea and Eczema suffers. Many mineral cosmetics actually aggravate skin conditions due to the bismuth oxychloride, fillers and un-natural preservatives. Our products do not contain any of these harsh ingredients, helping us remain one of the best choices for those with sensitive skin issues. All of our products are 100% non-comedogenic and acne safe.

Patch Test: We formulate our products to be especially gentle, but we recommend that you perform a patch test first…just to be on the safe side. If for any reason you have a reaction to any of our products, please contact us. Our mission is for 100% customer satisfaction!

Refresh Cosmetics Regularly: Throw out old cosmetics which can become spoiled, rancid or contaminated with use. Lipsticks, glosses, foundations, setting powders, blushes and bronzers should all be refreshed every year. All our products are hand-milled in small batches to guarantee freshness! Our cosmetics have a shelf life of three years with the exception of the mascara, gel eyeliners and liquid eyeliner which is eighteen months. We recommended that you replace opened eye makeup products every six to eight months, which is standard practice in the industry.

Date Opened: We suggest you use a paint pen or permanent marker to mark your cosmetics with the date that you opened them. This is an easy way for you to know when you should swap out old cosmetics for new ones. If you’re looking for the healthiest skin possible…this is seriously something you need to get in the habit of practicing!

Keep it clean: Clean cosmetic brushes often. Cosmetic brushes can easily harbor bacteria. We suggest you clean all your brushes and sponges at least twice a month, and always wash your hands before apply your makeup! Using a gentle castile liquid soap is recommended. Always wash your brushes after sharing or applying makeup on other Goddesses.

Leave eyeliner for last. Applying Liquid Eyeliner

  1. Apply our Multi-tasker primer, concealer or erase cream. It will help the application go smoother and also keep the liner from fading later.
  2. Liquid liner is much like a pointed felt tip marker.
  3. Pull your eyelid a little (w/ the opposite hand); this eliminates creases which will mess up the final product!
  4. Tilt head head back at an angle to help you get as close to the lash line as possible.
  5. Always start from the inside…out; in one long, sweeping motion. Staying along the lash line.
  6. When you get to the end of the lashes, go slightly upward. The more drama…the more angle!
  7. If you mess up at the end, don’t fret, just use a Q-tip or tissue with a teeny bit of gentle lotion or makeup remover to remove the wing, and try again. If the whole line is a mess, wipe it all off and start all over.
  8. Practice makes perfect!
RANDOM TIP: Use a Q-tip to finish your look…picking up excess eye makeup and correcting any mistakes. Dap in a little water or eye makeup remover to acheive a more dramatic eyeshadow look.

Lipstick & Lip Liner

  1. To make applying lipstick easier, rub a small amount of moisturizer on your lips or try Erzulie’s Lip Treatment.
  2. Outline lips with liner first. Never go a one shade darker or lighter with liner.
  3. Use a small, firm lip brush to apply lipstick; this gives you more control over direction and achieves a perfect edge. Relax your jaw so that your mouth is open slightly and brush on color starting in the middle of the upper lip.
  4. Blot your lips gently on tissue, being careful not to smudge or remove too much color, then brush on a second coat of lip color to create a deeper effect.
  5. For a shiny finish, use a clear or tinted lip gloss like our Juicee Tube lip gloss after applying lipstick. For a matte effect, apply concealer to your lips first or the mult-tasker…this also helps “seal” your lipstick.

One Pair of Lips… Several Shapes to Choose From…

Several different looks can be achieved through over-lining the lips just slightly. Don’t get carried away, but a smidgen over the natural lip line can achieve a wide range of results! Make sure your lip-liner & lipstick match! The best results come from using an opaque color, not translucent gloss. Take 10 years off your lips by going with a natural colored or pink gloss!!! Mature lips should avoid dark, matte colors that bleed, and draw the wrong attention to the lips, our Lipstick Rx Color&Shine is just what your are looking for… long lasting color and moisture.
