beyond minerals.

Mineral makeup, with plant derived ingredients that help care for your skin. Formulated without parabens, talc, or mineral oil.

It’s that time of year again.

Summer is coming to an end and fall and all it entails is right around the corner. With bittersweet excitement we’re back to school, work, responsibilities and routines. With that no time to spend an hour getting ready in the morning anymore, our master stylist Stephanie shared her tips on a quick 10 minute makeup application to get going on busy weekday mornings:

Step 1: start with our Inner Light tinted moisturizer

Aveda’s tinted moisturizer provides sheer, light weight coverage, and includes SPF 15. For medium coverage our loose mineral powder can be added, and for full coverage our dual foundation can be applied on top for a smooth, velvety finish. Our powders are free of talc and parabens, and come in 100% post consumer recycled packaging.

Step 2: Apply our thickening mascara

It will condition and thicken lashes, can be applied in layers for a build-able yet natural finish, leaves lashes in better condition than before, is smudge free and flake proof for all day wear, and is ophthalmologist tested and fragrance free.

Step 3: a quick dusting of our flower based petal accent blushes to complete the look

Add a warm glow by dusting our bronzer on cheeks and forehead, for a sun kissed look, or bring out rosy accents in the apples of your cheeks for a youthful look. Our blushes come in a trio of colors for ease of blending, and are infused with certified organic lavender, and have a soft, soothing aroma. Our tri-color palettes are talc and mineral oil free, and come in a 100% post consumer recycled clam-shell and paper sleeve.

You can even choose to use one of our amazing magnetic compacts to bring your dual foundation or our mineral pressed powder along with you. Our environmental essentials compact even holds one of our nourish-mint lip colors! Our lip colors actually smooths the appearance of fine lines and increases moisture up to 26%! Designed to naturally plump lips without irritation, through the delicious aroma of peppermint, ginger and vanilla. Comes in a wide range of colors.

This application of makeup should take less than ten minutes but will make a huge impact!
