Emmy Makeup Trends 2013

There were many great beauty moments at this year’s Emmys. Sporting the hottest trends of the season our favorite television stars took to the red carpet. We saw quite a few rising trends like the bob as well as chic ponytails and timeless looks like bright lip shades. We’re going to show you how to get the top three looks while reliving the red carpet!

This look was inspired by a high-fashion version of a 1965 Vogue magazine cover.

Eyes: Cover the lids with ZuZu Luxe eye shadow in Casino. Contour only the crease of the lids with shadow in color – Vixen. Brush on black liquid liner Raven on the top lash line and bottom. Now don’t be shy with the mascara!!

Skin: Always use a concealer and give a natural glow with this gold highlighted bronzer D-28 by ZuZu Luxe.

Cheeks: Try our blush in Samba– I feel like that will look great on most skin tones.

Lips: I love the lip color Siren by ZuZu Luxe.

To achieve this look get “shimmery eyes” by mixing Platinum shadow all over from lashes to brow bones, concentrating color mostly on the inner corners and lids. Extend the shimmer past brows and use as a highlighter on cheekbones and temples. Next, line lashes with a black liquid liner like ZuZu Luxe Raven to thicken your lashes then comb through them with Onyx Mascara.

To offset the light-reflecting eyes and cheeks, be sure to keep the rest of the face matte. Moisturize skin (Gabriel Organics) and then apply an oil-free liquid foundation like ZuZu Luxe. Next, tap peachy Gabriel Cosmetics Apricot onto cheeks.

For those poppy lips, we recommend swiping on Coral Gabriel Cosmetics lipstick straight from the tube and perfecting the line with a lip brush. This statement lip is all the rage this fall.

We fell in love with this gorgeous look on the red carpet. This look was inspired by the German model Veruschka from the 70’s.  This look is more modern with soft blended bronzing, a pop of pastel to the eyes and a neutral lip. For this shimmery eye use ZuZu Luxe shadow in Dusk on eyelids and lining underneath the eye. To make your eyes pop like Padma’s use Prism on the inner eye.  For the retro lip look try Ultra Suede topped off with Gabriel Color Champagne lip gloss.

 

Get your Hollywood glamour on!

Celiac Disease and Gluten in Cosmetics

The Secret To Mistake Proof Beauty

Certified Gluten Free

If you have a gluten intolerance or celiac disease you probably are used to looking for gluten in your food, but what about your makeup?  Food labels almost always list whether or not it contains gluten, a type of protein found in wheat, barley and other grains. Packaging for your beauty products may not provide this important information.  Most mainstream cosmetic companies don’t provide gluten information on their packaging.

There are an estimated 2 million people in the United States with celiac disease. If they consume gluten, their immune systems attack villi structures that line your small intestine which are crucial for absorbing food nutrients. The only treatment is to avoid gluten.

Studies have shown that anyone sensitive to gluten could experience symptoms and reactions to makeup, skin care, and lotions that contain gluten. Consumers need to be aware of potential inadvertent gluten exposure. These products can be accidentally ingested in small quantities if the product is used on their hands or around their mouth. Gabriel Cosmetics and ZuZu Luxe are one of the first cosmetic companies to have their products Certified Gluten Free.  Not all labels list gluten even if it has a gluten based ingredient such as vitamin E.

So to ensure that you are getting a gluten free product, always purchase from a reputable company like Gabriel Cosmetics, Inc. that communicates that we understand what gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease are and our commitment to providing these products free of gluten.  In conjunction with National Celiac Disease Awareness Day today we are offering 20% off of our products here using code glutenfree.
