Kjaer Weis Makeup Fall 15

This is the latest look from makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis. I've been a fan of the brand since I first laid eyes on the cool metal compacts. I can't think of any other makeup brand that comes close to this stunning packaging. Of course it's what's inside that is most important. Certified organic ingredients, natural mineral pigments, and absolutely no questionable chemicals. Plus, the compacts are refillable.

I became a loyalist after switching all of my makeup over a year ago and meeting Kirsten. Now I look forward to each new launch. This time there are some additions to the foundation, blush and lip color ranges. I was skeptical about trying the poppy-hued "Above and Beyond" Cream Blush but with Kirsten applying it, I knew I was in good hands. It gave my "Paper Thin" (cool, ivory toned) foundation base a great pop of color.

The next item from the fall collection that caught my attention: Captivate Lip Tint. The press release described it as a nude, understated and versatile shade. Of course I was more than happy to receive a sample. How can I say no to a neutral?

“I created our first light brown Lip Tint with a subtle gold shimmer. It's a neutral that plays well with the entire Kjaer Weis line.” – Kirsten Kjaer Weis

Kjaer Weis continues to amaze me with truly incredible organic makeup. I started using this brand last fall and was instantly hooked. I had the pleasure of meeting Kirsten Kjaer Weis when she was visiting San Francisco recently. It was lovely to spend time with her and learn more about her vision for this brand. We talked about the gorgeous packaging, new products launching later this year and the growth of the clean beauty movement. I have no doubt that Kjaer Weis will remain a favorite in my makeup kit for many years to come. I cannot wait to try the new products she's working on. In the meantime, we have plenty of KW to keep us occupied.

The latest look for spring is stunning, as expected. "It’s the charmingly self-assured girl you’ve seen in vintage French films, dashing about the streets of Paris. Her makeup could’ve been applied in the back of le taxi, but somehow elevates her face with a perfect softness. Such a playful, carefree attitude is the essence of spring." —KW

Here's how to get the look:

• Let the skin be seen – just a light touch of Foundation to even out skin tone is all you need. Continue to create youthful, luminous skin by patting Radiance Highlighter into the tops of the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose with your fingers. For just the right amount of flush, add pale pink Embrace Cream Blush to the apples of cheeks with a sweep of the Blush Brush.

• Bring depth and dimension to the eyes with a soft shading of neutral shadows. Begin with a base of Cloud Nine, from lashline to brow bone, then layer on Wisdom with the Soft Brush, feathering the color past the crease; using the Angle Brush, gently sweep the same color along the lower lash line. Add Divine to the crease, blending the color towards the lash line.

• An opaque lip color was achieved simply by applying two coats of Rapture Lip Tint with our Lip Brush. Finish by lightly blotting lips, setting the color and creating a slightly matte look.

Discovering new beauty products has always been one of the best things about my work. I do tend to play favorites and stick with certain lines for a long time. Kypris is a recent find that easily fit into my beauty regimen because I'm crazy about serums + oils and their super powers. This brand uses organic, wild-crafted, and sustainably grown ingredients, which is very important to me. So I've been using the Beauty Elixir III Prismatic Array for two months now and I'm seeing some impressive results in my skin. Prismatic Array is a 100% active formula replete with free radical-quenching CoQ10, collagen-inspiring Vitamin C ester, and a rainbow of phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, and natural actives. It repairs signs of environmental stressors and leaves skin soft and luminous, which is why I use it every evening after I wash my face and do my PM pre-bedtime beauty routine. All it takes is a few drops and let me tell you the bottle lasts a long time! After months of use, I still have more than half left to go. I've been applying to my face and neck but need to make a point of using another drop to cover my décolleté as well. Now that I've tried this blend, I am eager to experience other Kypris offerings like the Antioxidant Dew for deep hydration and Clearing Serum for balance. 1,000 Roses sound pretty incredible too.

Not sure what your skincare needs are in the serum + elixir department? Kypris has a quick and easy quiz that gives you personal customized recommendations for your skincare needs.

Be warned, they've been known to sell out but they are currently available at CredoBeauty.com

In the last six months, I've replaced all of my makeup and most of my new favorites are from Kjaer Weis. This gorgeous brand boasts certified organic formulas that look and feel good. The most recent addition to my makeup kit is the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation. It's creamy, lightweight and blends easily with a foundation brush. I love that you can layer on coverage to even out skin tone as desired and it provides a semi-matte finish. This beautiful base is the first step in creating the stunning understated look shown above, created by makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis. I like to think of it as minimalist makeup. It's fresh, light and perfect for everyday beauty. Get the look with detailed product recommendations and application tips on the Credo blog.
