  • Cruelty-free + Vegan Cosmetics | 10-Minute to Date Night Makeup

    by Haut Cosmetics on June 1, 2014

    haut 10-minute makeupFrom the models on the runways to the ‘no-makeup selfies’, more natural, healthy looks are being embraced. Keeping those trends in mind, we have created a 10-minute, natural look with our vegan makeup that focuses on the basics: protecting our skin from the environmental elements with natural SPF and balancing the skin tone (mine is hyper pigmentation and cystic acne scarring). A simple and quick addition of color, just to put that extra little skip in your step, can be applied to the lips, cheeks and eyes, all with the same product.

    10-minute essentials:

    1. Coconut Cream
    2. BB Cream in macadamia lays the foundation
    3. icustomblend Bio-mineral Foundation
    4. Beige Shea Brightener under the eye
    5. Pink Shea Brightener around the corners and lids
    6. Love Cocoa Balm applied to lips and remaining to cheeks and eyes.

    We also created a Date Night look to encourage you to go out once in a while!! We played with highlight and contour, white liner, light pink or nude lips, a bold Raw Pigment for the eyes and fuller “schoolboy” brows. If you normally use your fingers, try our vegan brushes for a different effect. Keep it fun!


    Date Night Essentials:

    1. To freshen up your look later on in the day, try applying our Skin Elixir by gently patting a few drops between hands then lightly patting with fingers on face where you want to glow. It revives the skin and creates a smooth look to makeup applied over it. Any remaining Elixir on hands can be smoothed through hair for shine.
    2. HDD Cream in macadamia lays the foundation
    3. Shea Brighteners around eyes
    4. Highlight and Contour with Illuminating Aloe Loose Tint and Yellow Brightener
    5. A blending brush of icustomblend Bio-mineral Foundation
    6. Martini Aloe Cream Tint for fuller brows
    7. Vintage Aloe Cream Tint as a liner, taking it beyond the outer corner of the eye a little farther than usual (be dramatic!)
    8. The white brightener can be applied to the inner corners of the eyes, along lower lash lines and the inner lids. In addition, I added just a touch to the middle of my lips to create a fuller look.
    9. Amethyst Raw Pigment is a perfect shade of purple for this season on your eyelids
    10. He’s the One Aloe Cream tint  for the cheeks and last but not least
    11. Empathy Lip Gloss for my lips, or to up the drama maybe with Strawberry Lip Gloss for yours! It’s going to be a fun night….Be Dramatic! Fall In Love!

    Truth: So my date night didn’t end up being with my hubby but rather my three year old son! What a great date it was!

    About Haut Cosmetics

    It has been her lifelong passion to bring out a glimpse of the true beauty of anyone who crosses her path. Joanne first embarked on this journey as a young writer. Any free moment was spent sketching pictures or writing poems and short stories about the special people in her life. With a large family of artists in her midst, she learned to appreciate the gift of creativity. Her greatest joy has been in doing freelance makeup for the past fourteen years. Her drive to illustrate beauty gained momentum when she lost one of the most vibrant and influential forces in her life, her grandmother. After her passing her diaries were uncovered and in them her grandmother described feelings of not being ‘pretty enough’. Yet, throughout her life her grandmother’s presence always lit up a room. That is true beauty…so exquisite it is timeless. Joanne’s life experiences have led her to believe that feminine charm is not only in the outward appearance; it is in the way one discreetly pleases the soul. HAUT, meaning ‘skin’ in German, has been created in a divine quest to redefine ‘pretty’ as being a colourful reflection of the inner details. A little about Amy... Amy is a wife and mother of three who enjoys the simple things in life. She strives to bring wholesome goodness to this world whether it is through her friendly personality or through her works. The things that bring joy to her life are family and friends, the smiles on her children’s faces, healthy living which includes maintaining an exercise routine, eating lots of vegetables and fruit and breathing in the freshness of the outdoors. Amy enjoys being a part of her sister’s Haut Cosmetics Line, collaborating on new ideas, contributing to the company’s PR and social media department. When Amy is working outside the home it would be as a Certified Dental Assistant or volunteering at the local Co-op Produce Market.
