We are unbelievably excited to share with you something we have been working on for a long time- our first skincare range ! After months of mixing and testing (we have no objections to being guinea pigs) we have finally created two skincare products to be proud of. We wanted our first two products to be suitable for all skin types, so that everyone could use it. As always, the hydrate day and night cream are made from natural ingredients,

FRESH START

BEAUTY SLEEP

Hydrate Night Cream

Nourishing argan oil, jojoba oil and aloe vera combine with detoxifying and relaxing rose geranium and lavender oils, while sea plant stem cells support cell production and skin renewal for increased radiance and tone.

Hydrate Night Cream

 

What’s your TYPE?

In the 11 years we’ve been creating the finest mineral makeup, we’ve come to know that, when it comes to skin, there’s no ‘one size fits all’. That’s why were already working on our next collection of skincare, specifically tailored for dry, oily and combination skin types.

We hope you love our skincare products just as much as we do, make sure to let us know if you try it!

READY TO GLOW

January 25th, 2016

 

ReadytoGlow

Our first launch of 2016 has just landed and we couldn’t be more excited to share!

We can’t wait to get in the spring beauty mood and fresh, glow-getting skin is the perfect way to update your look in preparation for the change in seasons.

Great skin is the foundation of beautiful makeup, but if your inner glow needs a little help, our new Contour Duo is the perfect way to make the absolute most of what you’ve got.  It’s our secret shortcut to enviable contours and sky-high cheekbones!

Our duo contains a skin-flattering bronzer that makes for effortless contouring and a light-reflecting highlighter which can be used sparingly for a subtle, fresh daytime glow or intensified for a luminous, killer evening look.  No glitter here, just a gorgeous highlight!  Our angled blush brush is the perfect partner for enhancing those cheekbones you never knew you had.

We just love the look that Jane Bradley created on the beautiful Annabel – fresh, subtle and gorgeous.  Here’s how she did it:

First up, let’s sculpt.  Apply the bronzer to the areas of the face that you want to contour, gradually working into the hollows of the cheeks and defining the temples, jaw line and sides of the nose.  Looking into the mirror face-on, blend, blend, blend to smooth any lines or edges.

Now for some glow.  Starting with just a little highlighter, apply to the tops of cheekbones, centre of nose, cupid’s bow, brow bone and anywhere that light naturally catches the skin, build up to achieve the glow you’re after – and you’re done!

Naturally, it’s our usual skin loving formula containing argan oil and marine extract.  It’s fragrance and talc free and vegan friendly – what’s not to love?

Just Add Drama

October 5th, 2015

LL-BlogPost-SM

 

How have we kept this one under wraps?  We’ve been bursting to share this year’s limited edition eye palette with you for months and now we finally can!

Our team at HQ worked on the gorgeous Smoke & Mirrors eye palette with the lovely Jane Bradley, celebrity make up artist, for a fresh perspective on what can work together for a show stopping smoky eye.  The palette’s eight high-pigment, fine-textured shimmering and matte shadows make building and blending a dramatic eye easy.  The darker shades are perfect for adding depth and drama to produce a classic smoky eye look, whereas the light shades will act as the perfect base to build up a variety of party season looks.

Jane said “I love that every single shade in the Smoke & Mirrors palette can be worn together, in any combination, meaning the possibilities are endless!”.  Here at HQ, Myth and Silhouette are fast becoming our everyday faves which they seem to suit every one of us.

We have a feeling Smoke & Mirrors won’t be hanging around for long so get it on your Christmas list now!

Won’t leave the house without our Mineral Makeup? Now you can hold onto that Lily Lolo glow for even longer with our new Makeup Mist. Just spritz on this moisturising formula, infused with Aloe Vera and antioxidant Green Tea Leaf extract, for extra staying power and a flawless, dewy finish.

To apply, shake well then hold the bottle 22 – 24 cm away and mist the face 2–4 times, in an “X” and “T” formation.

Get the Glow.

June 2nd, 2015

LL-BlogPost-Retina-PB
Following on from the success of our pressed products launched last year; we are excited to introduce our new addition to the LL family, Pressed Bronzer.

Our lightweight Pressed Bronzer will instantly give the skin a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow. With soft, buildable colour the three shades will give you the desired level of tan without the need to expose your skin to the sun’s harmful rays.

This mineral rich Pressed Bronzer contains anti-ageing  Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil for added moisturising benefits.

Bronzer should be applied to the areas of your face the sun would naturally hit, forehead, the cheekbones, and down along your jawline to give you a sun kissed radiance. For a more contoured look it can be applied in a 3 shape on either side of the face, blending any edges for a natural finish.

We thought we’d let you in on the secret of how our model Ana got this sun-kissed glow.

Eyes – Apply Moonlight Mineral Eye Shadow with a wet brush as the main base to the eyelid and blend into the socket line. Bronze sparkle can be applied to the crease and blended together.

Mix Sticky Toffee with water and apply to the inner corner of the eye to highlight, and blend towards the middle of the eye lid. Using the socket line brush apply moonlight along the lower lash line and blend slightly to soften.

Face – Using our Bronzer Brush apply Montego Bay Bronzer all over the face, particularly on areas that would normally catch the sun, don’t forget to blend into the neck. Contour using the blush brush, apply Honolulu in the hollows under the cheek bones along the jawline, down the sides of the nose and near the hairline.

Lips – Keep the lips nude for this look with our Natural Lipstick in Rose Gold which contains a slight shimmer. Apply straight from the bullet and blot with a tissue before adding a second coat for longevity. Add a coat of Natural Lip Gloss in Clear for an extra finish.

To avoid looking too orange look, pick the bronzer shade that will suit your skin tone:

Light skin tone – Miami Beach – Matte

Medium skin tone – Montego Bay – Sheen

Medium to dark skin tone – Honolulu – Sheen

It’s time to get that summer ready glow.

HOLY BROW! Beautifully defined eyebrows…

June 11th, 2014

Following on from the successful launch of our Pressed Eye Shadow, available in the same sleek mirrored compacts we have launched our Eyebrow Duo which comes in three natural shades.

Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo

Enhancing your eyebrows can completely change the look of your makeup as they define your face and can give a polished effect, the key is to only enhance and define your natural brow so they look like your brows but better!

Featuring a natural coloured wax and a pressed powder in, Light, Medium and Dark, find the shade which is closest your natural eyebrow colour or go a shade darker if you want a stronger more defined look.

Makeup artist to the stars, Jane Bradley, worked with our Eyebrow Duo on our latest shoot and was really impressed with the colours, she said “It’s often hard to find brow shades which match seamlessly with your natural brow colour but clearly great care has been taken to get these Eyebrow Duo’s just right. LIGHT is perfectly ashy for pale blondes, MEDIUM is a mid brown for mousy blondes or brunettes and DARK is spot on for blacker hair without a hint of an orangey undertone. I’m really impressed and the wax is a great way to keep the hairs in place too”

Our Angled Brow – Spoolie brush is the perfect tool to use with our Eyebrow Duo, making application quick and easy. Our Eyebrow Duo allows you to get perfectly groomed brows in just two easy steps;
Step 1
Using the Angled Brow end of the brush apply the pressed powder in short strokes to the natural shape of the brow, following the direction of hair growth. Make sure to fill in any gaps for a polished result.

Step 2
Using the Spoolie end of the brush, comb through the brows to groom and tidy before applying the wax. Using the Angled Brow end of the brush, coat the bristles in a thin layer of wax and follow the same application for the powder. The wax will set the brows and help to hold them in place all day.

TIP: To get a more intense colour payoff, mix the wax and powder together

Our Eyebrow Duo is the natural way to beautifully define your eyebrows for an immaculate finish, have you tried it yet?

Our team have been busy creating these gorgeous new shades that are bang on trend and perfect for glamorous daytime wear or a sultry night out with friends.

The four new Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow Duos shades have been chosen to complement each other and to help you create some wonderful effects. These convenient duos are the perfect size for your handbag and are a mess free alternative to our loose eye shadows.

You don’t need to worry about any nasty chemicals as the formulations are kept as simple as possible with high quality natural ingredients.

Smoky Slate – contains a smoky taupe shade paired with a deep grey. Great for achieving the smoky eye look but with hint of shimmer for added glamour.

Nightfall – Intense navy blue paired with a golden shimmer. Try applying the golden shade on eyelids then using the blue as eyeliner.

Plum Crazy – Deep shimmering plum shade with a dusky pink contrast. Perfect for using during the day or applying using a smudge brush for a more intense, dramatic night time look.

Poison Ivy – Golden Olive green shimmer with a complementary matte rose. The glistening golden green will work fabulously combined with the rose, for a night on the tiles.

Currently gracing the catwalks all over the world, bright bold lipstick shades are a big hit this Autumn.

Our beautiful fuchsia pink (Passion Pink) and deep merlot (Berry Crush)  are our boldest shades yet and are packed with Vitamin E and rosemary extract that will nourish your lips as well as giving you a ‘stand out in a crowd’ pout.

GET THE LOOK

We don’t know about you, but we always love seeing tips about how to get makeup looks, so we’d like to share some of the model images from our recent photo shoot, and how we made them look so beautiful using some of our A/W products as well as firm favourites from our current range.

Below is Emma wearing everyday Autumnal makeup

AW main

Face

Our makeup artist used a mix of Coffee Bean and Warm Honey Mineral Foundation on Emma and a light dusting of Sunset Blush on her cheeks. Flawless Matte Finishing Powder was used over the top to stop shine or reflections on camera.

Eyes

All of our makeup artists used Prime Focus eye lid Primer to extend the wear of powder eye shadow, keeping it smooth and crease-free.

Using Poison Ivy Pressed Eye Shadow Duo, the matte rose was applied all over the eye socket as a base and the green was used on the lower and upper lash lines to create a smoky effect.

As a highlighter, Cream Soda Mineral Eye Shadow was applied under the brow bone to add a hint of glamour.

A coating of Lash Alert mascara and Natural Eyeliner, both in black was added to the upper and lower lashes to finish off  these powerful eyes.

Lips

We think Emma looks beautiful in the new Berry Crush Lipstick, and it really compliments the dramatic eye makeup.

 

Here is Tess with  more dramatic night time  makeup

AW 2nd

Face

A light – medium shade of our Mineral Foundation, Popcorn, was used on Tess to match her peach undertones, with a hint of Flushed Blusher to highlight the cheekbones.

Eyes

Prime Focus primer on the whole eyelid area, with Smoky Slate Pressed Eye Shadow Duo used to create this look. The smoky Taupe was applied as a base and the deep grey was blended around the eye socket and under the lash line for an intense night time look. To finish off the eyes, the makeup artist used Lash Alert black mascara and good amount of eyeliner on the edge of the eyelid and under the eyes using a Smudge Brush.

Lips

Tess wore the Passion pink Natural Lipstick with Bitten Pink Lip Gloss over the top.

Lily Lolo goes to print!

March 19th, 2013

We have been exceptionally busy in preparation for the launch of our new spring summer collection which will be available next month. Following on from the success of our Prime Focus Eyelid Primer which has been extremely popular, we will be introducing a brand new range of pressed mineral eye shadow products! This is an exciting extension to our popular range of loose mineral eye shadows. Some of our product development team took a trip down to the printers based in Halifax in the UK to check on the progress of the packaging.

While they were there, they got to have a tour around the factory to see what processes are involved in creating our very special boxes! There were lots of hi-tech machines for printing, cutting, folding and gluing. They were amazed at how much attention to detail is paid at every part of the production process to make sure the end result is flawless!

Our box supplier have lots of major clients in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry and you can only imagine how many boxes get printed each day (something like 10,000 an hour apparently!) and as a result how much waste is produced; therefore it was good to hear that all the waste is 100% recycled.  Here at Lily Lolo we want to make sure that every part of our supply chain supports our ethical stance. We are also proud to be supporting a UK business at a time when many companies are going overseas for lower costs regardless of the ethical implications.

Ahead of the launch we wanted to give you a sneak preview of what the packaging will look like for the new pressed eye shadow, hot off the printer… and available to buy soon!

Autumn Radiance

As the weather starts to take a chillier turn our thoughts turn to updating our look and getting a warm autumnal glow, our brand new shades are perfect for adding a warming touch of colour, are easy to apply and give you a natural, healthy look.

Using Soul Sister Mineral Eye Shadow, sweep a wash of colour across the eyelids. Soul Sister has a flattering demi-matte finish which gives just the right amount of lift to your eyes. Add depth and drama next by blending Cosmopolitan into the socket line (our Eye Blending Brush is great for this).

Finish off your eyes with two coats of our fabulous Lash Alert mascara.

Top Tip: Cosmopolitan used with a wet Eye Definer or Eye Detail brush will give a stunning eye liner shade too!

Using Sunset Mineral Blush will help to create a healthy looking, rosy glow to the apples of your cheeks or give skin a natural shimmering lift with Goddess.

For a dusky pink lip, Damson Dusk Natural Lip Gloss is ideal, echoing the shades often found in natural lip colours to enhance your perfect pout, you’ll fast find it becoming your everyday essential!  Or why not try our glistening Cocktail shade for a warm lip gloss to add a touch of glamour to any look, this deep, peach apricot shade has just the right amount of shimmer and is on trend for a stunning catwalk lip look.
