March is here, which means SPRING!

 

There are many celebrations occuring this month, do you have plans to partake?

 

On the 3rd, Japan celebrated the Doll or Peach Blossom festival. On this day, families honor their young daughters' health and beauty.  Make a date with your daughter and doll her up with our Peachfuzz products!

A Moment with the Makeup Artist
Base Face 101 - Easy steps for using your Zosimos products to create the ultimate flawless palette.
  
Always start with cleaning & moisturizing.  Save the scrubbing/exfoliating for nighttime as they can cause skin to redden.
  
Shake your Primer to redistribute any settled pigment.  Then use the sponge provided to apply to the entire face, focusing on the T-zone or any other areas where the pores are more noticeable.  If your skin is particularly oily, it may be helpful to dampen the sponge before application, so that only the pigment/Silk Mica is smoothed onto the skin.
 
Use a Concealer Brush to apply small amounts of Concealer to your eye area and blend any lines.  The bonus is that our Concealer doubles as an Eye Shadow Base!  Then apply to any areas you wish to conceal.  Remember to use sparingly to keep that natural look and avoid any "cakey-ness."
  
Next, dip your Foundation or Kabuki Brush into the Foundation jar.  Keep in mind that with mineral foundation the powder stays where you put it.  With that in mind, turn your brush upside-down (bristles facing the ceiling) and tap the handle gently several times on a hard surface.  This incorporates the Foundation into the well of the brush.  Buff onto your face starting in the center and moving outwards.  It is best to use downward strokes, as this will make the fine hair on your face less noticeable.
  
Finish with a spritz of Setting Mist or plain water if you avoid scents.

Formulator's Corner

Three exciting developments this month!

 

The Peony pigment was refomulated to be Vegan.  The improvement affects all the Peony products - Eye Shadow, Lip Liner, Lipstick, Lip Gloss, and Lip & Cheek Tint.

 

 

Speaking of Lip & Cheek Tint, the content of Wildcrafted Candelilla Wax was reduced to make the product softer.  It spreads easier, you need to try it!

 

Last, but not least, is a little edit to the Concealer.  The addition of Vegetable Glycerin makes this product creamier and easier to apply. Order some to see for yourself!

 

Formulas are updated and improved as a result of the feedback we receive from both customers and professional makeup artists we work with, so keep it coming!

Customer Feedback

 

 Congratulations to Ashley H. of Alabama - winner of this month's $10 Customer Feedback Token of Appreciation!

 

Ashley told us:

 

"Greetings...I wanted you to know I adore the lipstick, gloss, cheek tint, and eye shadow samples.

 

I thought them a bit expensive at first; however, when I received them I realized they are generous, high quality portions.

 

Your colors are beautiful and richly pigmented.  I found they did not dry out my features, nor did they create an oil slick.

 

I do have to reapply more often than with unhealthy cosmetics, but it is so worth it.

 

Also, shipping took some time, but I understand these are handcrafted.

 

I tossed the Dior, Uban Decay, and Estee for good. Thank you, Thank you!"

Last Chance

 

Kabuki with handle  

Did you know we have nearly 20 different styles of cosmetic brushes on CLEARANCE?!

 

We decided a while ago to stick with offering only the Bamboo Brushes because they are Vegan.  Our Vegan customers avoid using brushes created with animal hair.

 

If using Vegan brushes is not a concern for you, take a look at all we have to offer while supplies last! 

 

Brushes on the Clearance Page are marked down 25%!
