LuLu Insider Event Recap: A Glam Saturday afternoon

At LuLu Face Company we had a gorgeous sunny day to show off our new and improved LuLu “lovelist” subscription box in our Litchfield, CT location. The insider event allowed us to share what LuLu is all about in a fun, stress free environment. Our guests really enjoyed an inside look into the custom foundations, blushes, shadows, and concealers that we love to create. We truly believe that everyone should feel pretty all of the time. Don’t you think so too?

The event all started with a fully stocked mimosa bar and mingling with guests followed by an introduction to LuLu as a brand! We enjoyed a fun filled intro to the box and founder Linda Temkin talked all things beauty with our talented guests (some lovely Connecticut bloggers). It was the perfect intimate setting with wonderful food and drinks by owner and chef Sam of Mockingbird Kitchen and Bar. Doesn’t it sound like such a glam Saturday afternoon?

A special makeup consultation for each attendee made the experience even MORE customizable and personalized – just like their beauty box! Contents of the box included, a custom HD Defintion CC Cream, Glow All Over, Skin Illuminator, Fit and Flushed, A Lipcolor of our choice, and a A To Go brush. LuLu has always been all about inspiring a trendy – classic expression with attention to quality ingredients and this subscription service does just that. The box will come out 4 times a year customized just for you by filling out a simple questionnaire card to determine the best colors and shades for your skintone. The customization possibilities are endless to create the perfect match.

LuLu uses pure minerals that calm the skin with anti-inflammatory properties. We’re 95% Vegan and 100% All Natural, something we’re very proud of!

Guests took photos of one another, discovered their perfect lip shade, all while sharing with their followers on social media. We setup the perfect selfie stations with mirrors, and every tool needed for the perfect makeover. It didn’t take long for the girls to create their best look with a little help from Linda of course. We even created a personalized custom color HD cream for each attendee to enjoy.

Brandy’s a makeup artist and Co-Founder of @entitledbeautyworldwide. She’s even a beauty expert for the today show and a blogger! Brandy really loved our gorgeous violet nail polish shade for her nails. She’s always looking for something violet to rock in May during Lupus Awareness month. SO perfect.

Ilse is a successful fashion columnist and blogger with feminine style you won’t want to miss! She had so much fun getting her very own custom CC cream made just for her by Linda. “Want sunscreen? She’ll add it. Get oily? She makes sure to add a mattifier. It’s honestly the coolest thing.” Thanks so much for sharing your LuLu experience, Ilse.

Lydia is a fashion blogger and photographer who loves to collect and shop secondhand.
She’s photographing the best fashion at the Connecticut shoreline. She had a lovely afternoon socializing, trying out some new makeup, and enjoying snacks. In her opinion, it’s the option to have products customized that really sets the line apart. We’re so thrilled to hear that you loved your custom CC cream, Lydia.

We really couldn’t have asked for a better event with these talented Connecticut bloggers. Please visit us again soon ladies! Don’t forget to follow them around Connecticut on all their social media and be on the lookout for the LuLu subscription box. Coming to your doorsteps very soon.

Finding Your Everyday Essentials

essential beauty products everyday

Not liking the makeup routine you’ve sunken into? How can you change this and re-discover your everyday essentials all over again? Well, we’ve got a few suggestions for you. First, it’s time to be honest with ourselves. Ask yourself these questions:
How much time do I want to spend getting ready? What am I looking for in a product? What do I want to emphasize or hide? Where am I going?

We want to help you feel like the best you when you put on your “go-to” face. While everyone has their own unique traits they work with, we like to think there are essentials out there that are perfect for anybody. See how these stack up in your routine and with your specific needs.

Here are our can’t-go-wrong faves and why they work for most!

 

beauty necessities everyday makeup

 

Deep Dive Micellar Cleansing Water 
Let’s start with what makes this one unique. The great thing about micelle molecules is that they act as magnets to lift dirt, oil, and makeup from the face and eyes. Because this cleanser lifts impurities, all it takes is a gentle swipe to remove, instead of damaging your skin with harsher exfoliation. It’s not just a cleanser, either: it also works to tone and repair skin, and let’s face it, who couldn’t use a little R&R for your skin? This is also a cleanser that is gentle on the skin due to extracts of poppyseed, prickly pear, and white lily, so your skin will be feeling fresh and new no matter how sensitive it is.

Shadow/Cake Liner Palette
Adding a palette to your beauty arsenal can bring your look to life in a variety of different ways or occasions, and all the different colors mean you don’t have to stick to the exact same thing every day. A palette is an essential item in any makeup bag because you can mix it up without having to purchase any new colors. Since LuLu has a line of fully customizable palettes, we suggest filling your palette with colors that flatter in multiple occasions for your go-to colors, and selecting a couple that can be for special looks. No matter what kind of eye makeup you wear, you can customize this to fit your needs. Do you usually forgo a heavy black liner? No problem, swap it out for a neutral or add another eyeshadow.

Mineral Powder Blush
Who couldn’t use a little livening up in the cheeks first thing in the morning? No matter the shade of your skin, everyone looks a little glowier with a slight flush added to the cheeks, and we think having a great quality blush in your beauty bag is essential. Even if all you want to do is throw on some mascara and call it a day, swiping on some blush can liven up your face in one simple step. Our pressed mineral blush is a luxurious formula free of oils, talk and fragrance, so it’s ideal for any skin type.

Fit and Flushed Bronzer
Want to take that flat skin a step further? We think it’s safe to say everyone wants that healthy bronzed look. However, in the winter months it can be a little harder to obtain it naturally. Thinking you could use a boost in your flat dull skin? Try Fit and Flushed to add a bronzed glow; the shade is perfect for any skin tone and because it’s buildable you can adjust just how much of that bronze you want, whether it’s just a dash or you want to be shimmering like a gold mine!

What’s Best For You? Custom Blending Options by LuLu

custom blending foundation

In a game of competing brand names and one-upping your peers’ designer cosmetics, how would you like to have a product that no one else has? Better yet, not only is this product unique, but it is specifically suited to what your face needs most, and what looks good on it. Many of us don’t get exactly what our skin needs out of our products, but because we like the shade or the finish we continue to use them. Wouldn’t you want to include all the features you desire into a single product?

Instead of using a product that’s aimed at anyone with a face, how about getting your hands on some products that are suited for your face. Sometimes these blanket solutions can exacerbate the problem, since everyone’s skin reacts in a unique way. Yours may react differently, product may sit on it differently, and may be colored differently. Sounds good, right? Onto the details!

What do we do?
We use our years of experience and knowledge (and superpowers) to custom blend products for you based on your unique skincare necessities, and your individual stylistic preferences. Get some expert tips along the way, too! We can custom blend blush, foundation, bronzer, eyeshadow, and soon—lips!

What kind of customizations can we make?
Foundation – Perhaps you have found your shade but the oil from your skin doesn’t keep it in place. We can add finishing powder to an oil-free foundation for a more stay-all-day matte look that won’t move. Or maybe you need a bit more color correction to combat dark circles or discoloration. We’ve got it covered!

  • Finish: mattifying, dewy, etc.
  • Coverage: light, medium, full
  • Moisturizing
  • Sunscreen included (up to 18SPF)
  • Color matching
  • Color correcting
  • Based on skin type: oily, dry, acne prone, combination, etc
  • Skin Care Ingredients: copper peptides, brightening, firming, etc.

Eyeshadows – This is perfect for those occasions when you have an idea in mind but you just can’t find in an existing product. Or maybe there’s a very specific color you’re looking for. We can custom blend that shade into a product for you!

  • Coverage
  • Custom color

Blush/Bronzer – We see this problem quite frequently, maybe you prefer a sparkle-free, matte face, but every bronzer or blush you stumble across is jam-packed with shimmer. For someone that wants a bronzer without the sparkle – this could be perfect for you. You’ll get your perfect shade, just sparkle-free and custom-tailored to your needs.
Finish – more/less shimmer, more/less matte, etc.

  • Color Matching

Feel Better About Your Products: Vegan and Cruelty-Free!

vegan cruelty free

In this post we wanted to focus on another element of our line that is just as important as what you can do with a lipstick or an eyeshadow. LuLu prides itself on having a line of cruelty-free products with an additional focus on vegan products. We think it’s an important responsibility to provide products that are cruelty-free in an industry that has an overwhelming amount of products that are not.

Many of us find moral conflict with the standards of animal testing, and we hate having to purchase products that were tested in this way, no matter how pretty the shade of lipstick. By providing a line that is full of cruelty-free products, we hope that those who are passionate about this issue will have another product line to add to their beauty regimen, or those that currently use products tested on animals will consider making the switch over. The change starts with each and every one of us! The more brands that get involved in the industry and choose cruelty-free testing, the bigger the change we can make.

 

vegan nail polish
 

We provide products that are vegan for this same purpose. Many choose to use vegan products only, because while some may be cruelty-free, some other products still use animal byproduct, which some suspect are obtained by less than humane methods. We understand the difficulty of having a smaller selection of products to choose from, and that many vegan consumers may not be able to find what they need in some vegan product lines. So we made our own! We carry a wide array of vegan products, ranging from foundation to nail color.

Currently, the vegan products we offer are any shades of the Natural Vegan Lip Colour, Nail Polish, Flawless Finish High Definition Powder, and Natural Foundation, as well as any custom blended product you request. In these lines you’ll find a range of 5 lip colors, made with organic and natural waxes to smooth and moisturize lips, 15 nail polish shades with every color in the spectrum, and an additional top and base coat, and 6 different foundation shades. These products are also free from harsh chemicals, and provide natural vitamins and moisture. The vegan lines fulfill this same purpose for those that don’t want products that can be traced back to the exploitation of animals, and works to provide a product line that they can be proud of consuming.

We love our furry friends, and believe that animal testing is unnecessary and wrong. Something used to make you beautiful shouldn’t come from something so ugly! Buying a LuLu product means you can apply your lipstick with a smile and a clear conscious. We hope we can be a small part of the beauty industry changing for the better, and by providing a line with these options it’s easier for customers to make the switch to products that are better for all living beings.
