Spring Skin Saviors

So we’ve been mentioning the fact that it’s spring and that we have a lot of snow. Maybe it’s time to stop, but we’ve been waiting -- like so many others -- for the first warm days of spring and it’s a bit discouraging to see daffodils pop up through the earth only to find them buried under 2 feet of snow. We digress as usual… moving on to a few products that we are loving for our skin!

Elisabeth Moss Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Look

Elisabeth Moss won Outstanding Actress In A Drama Series at the 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards on January 11 for her performance in “The Handmaid's Tale,” which is no surprise to us. Have you seen “The Handmaid's Tale?” It is absolutely riveting and terrifying and addicting to watch. We digress… Elisabeth’s look was clean and classic, and we have the “how-to” from none other than Honest Beauty Creative Color Consultant, Daniel Martin.

Inspiration: “My inspiration for Lizzie's makeup was English garden. Her ERDEM dress and its embellishments was the jump off to a subtle smokey eye in steel gray and rosy cheeks.” - Daniel Martin

  • To recreate Elisabeth’s fresh, rosy look, start by prepping the skin with the Younger + Clearer Clarifying Toner and Younger + Clearer Nourishing Lotion for a balanced, hydrated canvas.
  • After applying the base, dust the Invisible Blurring Powder onto the t-zone to ensure your skin only shines where it should.
  • To create a subtle smoky eye, mix the Charcoal & Pewter Shimmer shades from the Everything Palette and smudge across the outer corners.
  • Next, pop the Champagne Shimmer shadow in the inside corners & finish with a few coats of the Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer.
  • Finish off the look by swiping the Falling For You Cheek Palette across the apples of your cheeks and a touch of highlight on the cheekbones.

Honest Beauty Products Used: Skincare: Younger + Clearer Clarifying Toner ($18); Younger + Clearer Nourishing Lotion ($32) Makeup: Concealer Duo in Vanishing Vanilla ($20), Invisible Blurring Powder ($28), Falling For You Cheek Palette ($34), Everything Makeup Palette ($35) and Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer ($22)

Jessica Alba's Secret to Pregnancy Bliss

Sometimes pregnancy can be, uh, a bit overwhelming -- to say the least. Happily, Honest Beauty Founder Jessica Alba is sharing her top pregnancy beauty tips! From baths, work outs, beauty & more, the soon-to-be mom of three is sharing her secrets on how to get through pregnancy looking and feeling your best.

Tips from Jessica Alba, Honest Beauty Founder:

Schedule ‘me’ time
I love a good bath!  I use our Honest Company Dreamy Lavender Bubble Bath, which smells amazing and helps to make me feel calm.

Drink lots of water
Hydration is absolutely key during pregnancy, so I make it a goal to drink at least 10 bottles of Smartwater a day. Also, water is great for preventing your skin from drying out. A cute water bottle can make drinking water more fun, my current fav is the “No Bad Days” tumbler.

Nourish from the inside out
It’s important to feed your body (and your face!) with the best possible foods and ingredients. I love really fresh, organic fruits & veggies, and recently can’t get enough peaches. My skincare go-to is the Honest Beauty Everything Organic Facial Oil, it’s rich in the same fatty acids and vitamins known to feed your body and it helps restore moisture and radiance.

Sweat it out
I try to work out 3 times per week, I love how I feel more energized and radiant after a good gym session. I’ve been doing total body strength training workouts because they’re great for women like me who are currently pregnant. Right now, I’m focusing on strengthening my upper back as I gain more weight in the front. When I'm working out I try not to get too heated and I try and keep my heart rate below 140bpm. Pace yourself and listen to your body (Consult your doctor before starting a new workout regime).

According to my trainer, Gregg Miele, benefits of strength training may include:
  • Improved fitness and strength
  • Healthy weight gain (reduction of excessive weight gain)
  • Controlled glucose levels (reduces risk of gestational diabetes)
  • Better postpartum recovery

Never skip moisturizer
Us pregnant ladies need as much moisture as we can get. I apply the Honest Company Organic Body Oil right after the shower; it makes my skin feel super silky without being slippery. If you’re feeling dry & flaky, try adding dry brushing to your routine a couple times a week to buff away the dead skin

If all else fails, swipe on a bold lip
A bright, bold lip always picks me up and makes me feel confident, even on days when I’m not really feeling the “pregnancy glow”. My go-to is the Honest Beauty Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Strawberry Kiss.

Jessica Alba 2017 Vanity Fair After Party GTL

BEAUTY INSPIRATION: Modern take on new romantics -- Jessica’s Ralph & Russo dress.

MAKEUP BY: Daniel Martin, Honest Beauty Creative Color Consultant

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: To recreate Jessica’s bronzed and bold look, start with the Contour + Highlight Palette to sculpt features while bringing warmth to the complexion. Next, sweep a creamy brown color across lids followed by a touch of Magic Balm for a glossy sheen and top off with several coats of the Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer. Complete this sultry look by creating a subtle ombre pout using Blazed Garnet, the vampy maroon shade in the Falling For You Palette followed by the Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Mulberry Kiss to brighten up the center of the top and bottom lips.

HAIR BY: Jennifer Yepez, Honest Beauty Brand Ambassador

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: To create Jessica Alba’s sleek and effortless pony, prep strands with the Beyond Hydrated Moisture Milk Leave-in Conditioner, Honestly Protected Heat Defense Spray and Honestly Uplifted Volumizing Spray. Using a flat brush, blow dry the front and sides of hair backwards, gather in a pony and fasten with an elastic band. Wrap a small strand around the elastic and secure with bobby pin. With a 1.5 inch curling iron, wrap large sections throughout the pony to create slight waves and bend followed by a mist of the Honestly Effortless Sea Salt Spray for added texture. To complete the look, spritz hair with a medium hold spray and smooth flyaways with a toothbrush.

  • MAKEUP: Contour + Highlight Kit ($34), Falling For You Makeup Palette ($35), Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer, Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Mulberry Kiss ($22) and Magic Balm ($18)
  • HAIR: Beyond Hydrated Moisture Milk Leave-in Conditioner ($20), Honestly Protected Heat Defense Spray ($18), Honestly Uplifted Volumizing Spray ($24) and Honestly Effortless Sea Salt Spray ($18)
