It is thrilling to encounter beauty in different forms, inside and out, so I applaud MAKE, the very first for-benefit color cosmetics line! I recently discovered MAKE just before a cold-escaping trip to Miami and it was perfect timing, as I was in dire need of a fresh sun-kissed look minus the heaviness of winter. Mentally, it was also refreshing to find out I was supporting the We See Beauty Foundation which is dedicated to accelerate women-led, worker owned cooperatives. When looking beautiful leads to building sustainable communities, there’s no way to go wrong!
Here’s my perfect formula for that youthful “no makeup” (wink, wink) look using my new MAKE obsessions: Gilded eyeshadow which adds just shimmer highlight and dimension without heavy color, satin finish blush in Marie Antoinette, a sheer light pink lipstick aptly named “Ballet Flats,” and Cream Luminous Lip Gloss in nude just to add that polish! In just five minutes, I felt transformed and pool-ready. Just before dinner, I applied the same regimen with a bit of added eyeliner and a darker shadow and was ready for a night on Lincoln Road.
Also take a minute to check out WeSeeBeauty.com which is way more than cool site for buying beautiful colors. There are products that tell stories rooted deeply in worldwide support for women. The first project starts in Brooklyn, NY with Do Good Be Beautiful, which creates and sells healthy cleaning and personal care products. It’s also a creative outlet, involving two artists each season working to create a collection. A former Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen collaborator, Faye Toogood is an interior designer who partnered with makeup artist Ayami Nishimura to create the New Medieval Collection. One-third of MAKE product sales support We See Beauty, so buy away and feel good about it- you’re helping yourself while supporting an amazing organization. Partner with MAKE and celebrate beauty in a new way!
