    When “vegan makeup” comes to mind, most people probably think of more natural and minimalist beauty styles. However, vegan and cruelty free cosmetics can take an everyday makeup routine to a glamorous look that is perfect for a night out after a long work day or a lazy Saturday. Clean formulas do not always equal simple or minimalist. Hyperpigmented eye makeup, liquid lipstick, and comfortable false eyelashes are just a few ways of achieving an evening-appropriate style. Here are some sophisticated yet trendy techniques that will not leave you uncomfortable or caked in cosmetics. Before applying concealer—or foundation if that is part of your regular routine—focus on eye makeup first. Base the look with highly pigmented eyeshadow that is crease-resistant and blends seamlessly. Start with a neutral color and then build on it with a darker shade in the crease of the eyelid. Use a highlighting pen on the brow bone underneath the brow and in the inner crease to open up the eye area, countering the darker colors you started with. Depending on your style, choose a shimmery tone or a matte shade. Move on to lining lids with an ultra-black liquid eyeliner that has a fine tip applicator. This makes it easy to apply and allows you to transition from an everyday look to more adventurous winged tips. Finish off with a voluminous, cruelty-free mascara that does not flake or smudge. Clean the area around the eyes with wet cotton pads to remove flakes from eyeshadow and highlighter. Next, apply concealer or foundation like you usually do. Whatever you are most comfortable with—and more importantly, what is comfortable for your skin—is the best move when being more creative with eye and lip makeup. Use a vegan waterproof eyebrow pencil to define and shape brows or leave them natural if you are blessed with full brows. Choosing the right lipstick for a night out can be tricky, but keep a few things in mind. First, consider the color palette of your outfit. If it is more vibrantly colorful or printed, selecting a subtler lip color is probably the best option to keep the overall palette balanced. However, a luscious red matte lipstick gorgeously contrasts with a little black dress. It all depends on your style preferences, but go with what makes you more confident. Also, consider how your lipstick will compliment your eye makeup. Make sure that it will hydrate, smooth, and plump lips for an extended period of time. Creamy lipstick that does not feather or needs constant reapplication is always the best choice, especially when it has clean ingredients that prevent chapping or cracking.

    Packing your makeup bag before a weekend road trip or cross-country flight often results in a chaotic mess of whatever fits. Travel beauty essentials should guarantee that you can continue your everyday routine on-the-go without a hitch. Essentials should be exactly what you need, right when you need them. Streamline your toiletry bag instead filling it with random odds-and-ends to cut down on the amount of products you pack. Choose these vegan makeup must-haves for long-lasting, comfortable wear so you can confidently focus on getting to your destination in style. Eye Brightener Get off a red-eye flight and look fully rested with a waterproof highlighter. Perfect for illuminating the inner corners of your eyes, highlighting your brow bones, and providing precise definition on cheekbones and the bridge of your nose for an instant face lift. This brilliant tool is a multipurpose necessity for brightening dark circles and defining your features. Never regret throwing this waterproof essential in your makeup bag last minute; you will use it every day of your trip. Waterproof Eyeliner Sick of arriving to your destination with smudged makeup and raccoon eyes? Ditch your old eyeliner for highly pigmented, waterproof eyeliner that lasts for over 24 hours. For fuller-looking lashes, tightly line your lash line using an ultra-black eyeliner with a waterproof formula. Vegan ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter ensure smooth application without fading or skipping. For a fresh look that lasts throughout a long travel day, pair with vegan mascara for an effortless look without unwanted flaking or running. Multipurpose Color Stick Seeing a theme yet? Multipurpose tools are the bread and butter of indispensable travel cosmetics. Multi-use color sticks are a trend that will soon earn their place as a makeup essential. Use a hydrating, pigmented, waterproof color as your lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow in one convenient multipurpose pencil. Airplanes are notorious for dehydrating skin due to air conditioning sucking out all moisture from the cabin atmosphere. This can cause unwanted acne breakouts and excess oil production unless you proactively hydrate ahead of time. Choose a beauty color stick from your favorite vegan makeup brands to moisturize skin with clean ingredients while sculpting and styling a personalized look. Vegan Mascara Every girl needs a low-maintenance mascara with a clump-free and flake-free formula. Staying comfortable while traveling is a number one priority, and mascaras that flake or smudge simply don’t it. Choose a mascara formulated to keep lashes hydrated while buildable fibers mimic the look of eyelash extensions without the hassle. Choose a mascara with a smudge-free formula so you can focus on fun adventures and catching your next flight. Packing your makeup bag does not have to be stressful or leave you feeling unprepared. Use this list to gather travel essentials that last all day and keep your skin healthy on-the-go. Thrive Causemetics develops cleanly formulated makeup essentials, perfect for any makeup routine. With vegan ingredients and absolutely no animal testing, they create high-performance cosmetics that provide gorgeous results perfect for any look.

    A trend determined to stay, liquid lipstick appeared in the makeup industry overnight in 2016 and dethroned traditional lipstick (for the time being). It is included in several new makeup collections, from classic colors to vibrant, trendy shades. Intimidated by the seemingly detailed application? Worried about smudging and flaking? And how easy is it to take off? Here is the complete guide to liquid lipstick application and answers to popular questions from makeup experts. How do I know which shade is right for my coloring and complexion? Liquid lipstick often looks more pigmented in the bottle than when it dries on your lips. Trying it on is one of the best ways to determine if the color fits your unique complexion. If you have pink, red, or bluish undertones to your skin, you have a cool complexion. Lip colors with blue or purple bases look best with this color palette. Orange tones are definitely not your friend. Avoid lighter shades, as they can easily wash you out. Conversely, if you have yellow, golden, or olive undertones, you have a warm complexion. Warmer shades should be your makeup style go-to, so pick out that fiery red lipstick you have been eyeing for a night out look. What is the easiest way to apply the liquid formula? A major concern for liquid lipstick newbies is the application. But remember the first time you tried liquid eyeliner? It takes a bit of practice before getting the application down. No one will get it perfectly the first time. Exfoliate and moisturize your lips before applying a matte liquid lipstick. Start with defining the cupid’s bow on your upper lip, then outline your top and bottom lips with the tip of the wand. Next, fill in the rest of your lips with the lightweight and moisturizing formula. Look for ingredients that hydrate and do not dry out your lips. This avoids feathering and cracking later on in the day. How long does liquid lipstick last? It depends on the brand. If the packaging or online description does not mention a definite timeline for lip wear, scratch it off your list of potentials and move on. All day coverage is obviously your best bet. Liquid lipsticks that have setting times often last longer and tint lips, so that if the formula fades, the saturated, pigmented color does not. Does liquid lipstick smudge like traditional lipstick? Nope! This is one of the major benefits of liquid lipstick over traditional lipstick. Once a high-performance formula sets, it will not peel, flake, or feather for the rest of the day. Make sure to follow instructions for the setting time. Otherwise, you might accidentally smudge your lip color masterpiece before it dries and have to start all over again. How do I take it off? Using a makeup wipe will most likely not remove liquid lipstick completely. Choose an oil-based makeup remover to take off liquid lipstick at the end of the day. It will probably have set within any lines or crevices in your lips, so take the time to remove it completely, just like your eye makeup. Take a break from traditional lipsticks and try introducing liquid lipsticks into your makeup routine. Thrive Causemetics has a cultivated collection of vegan liquid lipsticks with weightless, full-coverage that provide long-lasting and hydrating color. Use these tips to find your perfect shade and apply liquid lipstick effortlessly.

Classic Twists on Summer 2018 Beauty Trends

Summer makeup trends fill our Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards year after year, but often they are so far out of our comfort zones that we do not even want to try to attempt them. Trends are fun because they allow us to experiment with color, texture, and application. But there has to be a middle-ground between timeless classics and funky fads (fishtail eyebrows, anyone?).

Need some help navigating weirdly creative makeup styles hitting the runway this summer? Here’s an easy tutorial guide with classic takes on current summer makeup trends.

Brilliantly Bright Eyes

Grunge had its era; now it’s time for open eyes and brilliant illumination. Shimmery, pastel colors used to highlight and widen the eye area are popular amongst celebrities and fashion gurus alike this summer. Brightening the inner corner of the eyes has been a makeup staple for the majority of the 2010’s, but you can confidently take it to another level this season.

Use a highlighter pen to lighten and brighten the inner corner of the eyes. Then sparingly use it on the brow bones underneath eyebrows. Pair with pastel eyeshadows with pink and champagne undertones for a youthful and shimmery glow. After applying mascara, use a cotton tip to remove dark flakes or smudges for a clean and bright look.

No-Makeup Makeup

Finally, the trend every girl can get behind. The au natural look is coming back to the runway, focusing on flawless skin and low-key cosmetics. But the key to understanding this fad is choosing products that freshen skin and last all day.

Sweat proof makeup is a fantastic tool to achieve this summer look. Use waterproof bronzer to create a sun-kissed look, but avoid serious contouring. Cosmetics that have skin-loving properties like Vitamin B5 serve a dual purpose as hydrating skincare and pigmented makeup in a convenient package. Less is more with this trend, and we can only hope it sticks around past this summer season.

Vibrant Color Palettes

Blue eyeshadow may be this summer’s biggest predicted trend, but vibrant colors are taking over eyeshadow palettes across the board. If bright eyeshadow colors are not your favorite style, take this fad in a different direction.

A highly pigmented color stick is the perfect solution for intense color on your cheeks and lips. Apply a shimmery or matte shade with potent color that lasts all day. Blend out with a makeup brush so that the rich hue is not glaringly intense but instead subtly colorful.

Shimmer Me Pretty

Notice a theme yet? Makeup artists and gurus alike are loving natural glow styles this year. While you might already have shimmery makeup products in your makeup bag already, it is probably time to update how you apply them.

Apply a lightweight highlighter with vegan makeup brushes along the bridge of your nose and on the cupid’s bow of your upper lip. Sparingly layer to amplify your skin’s natural glow.

Take a step out of your comfort zone and try these Summer 2018 makeup styles for yourself. This season is all about individuality and natural glow. For high-performance makeup versatile in every season and any style, Thrive Causemetics creates collections with vibrant, pigmented colors and skin-loving ingredients. From vivid colors to shimmery highlighter, strike a balance between trendy creativity and classic style that is all your own this summer.
