Trend #5: Doll Lashes

You love the look of long, full lashes because it gives the appearance of being bright-eyed and refreshed, and you can’t get enough of our PureLash Lengthening Mascara. The formula includes a proprietary blend of Seaweed Lipids and Wheat Protein that thicken, curl and strengthen lashes, so they are always long, full and healthy.

Trend #4: Defined Eyes

Many of you truly believe your eyes are the windows to your souls, and you love to show them off. Whether creating a cat-eye, a full on wing, or a smudged line for a smokey eye, eyeliner is your go-to. We have a variety of different eyeliners, but your favorite is the trusty Eye Pencil— it’s vegan, wheat-free and long-lasting.

Trend #3: Bold Lips

Like many silver-screen sirens, nothing beats a bold lip. Some call it a power lip, and it must be true because many of you told us that adding lipstick makes you feel confident and sexy— who doesn’t want that? With 26 beautiful shades, including our bold, new red, Cindy, you know that PureMoist Lipstick is perfect for a little confidence boost and a pair of super soft lips.

Trend #2: Healthy, Glowing Skin

What’s better than a healthy glow? According to 25% of you, nothing can beat it! Whether you prefer bronzer or PurePressed Blush, you know that a wash of color on your cheeks makes you look radiant and feel put together. Learn how to find the right blush for your skin tone to get this healthy, glowing look.

Trend #1: Naturally Me, but Better!

We love that over 50% of you feel most beautiful and confident when you are rocking a natural look. All you need is a great foundation and you’re ready to take on the world. Which mineral foundation are you obsessed with? PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, of course! It’s barely there feel, buildable coverage and a full spectrum of shades allow you to get the natural look you want without being a makeup pro.
