Back to nature – beauty in perfect balance

January 9th, 2017

Get set for a  fresh start

This year we’re inviting women everywhere to discover a different kind of detox… and it all starts with your skin. At Lily Lolo we believe that a beautiful complexion is as much about what you put on your skin as what goes inside, which is why our collection of pure mineral makeup empowers your skin to be the very best it can be, naturally.

The beauty of pure minerals 

Our products are made using only ingredients that are proven to nourish and protect the skin. And what you’ll never, ever find in Lily Lolo makeup? Harmful chemicals such as parabens and phthalates, synthetic perfumes, dyes and anything that isn’t kind to you and your skin. Plus, with an amazing 18 foundation shades to choose from, finding your perfect match couldn’t be simpler.

MINERAL FOUNDATION SPF 15

The ultimate skin-loving makeup, our Mineral Foundation feels beautifully weightless while providing buildable, customisable coverage. Made using only natural ingredients, it minimises breakouts and blemishes for a healthy-looking complexion and creates a natural, breathable barrier to protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays.

MINERAL CONCEALER

Our secret weapon for minimising, not aggravating, blemishes. Just a little of this delicate loose powder is all it takes to effortlessly conceal imperfections and dark circles – and it’s incredibly long-lasting, too.

FINISHING POWDER

The perfect final touch for makeup, this silky, light-diffusing powder sets foundation and concealer in place, provides extra staying power and instantly blurs the appearance of fine lines and imperfections.

 

We sell sample sizes for our foundation and finishing powder so you can make sure you get the right match. If you feel you’re unsure on a shade, just pop us an email or give us a call and we will help find your perfect shade!

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.

The fairest of them all.

If you have pale skin, you’ll know how hard it is to find makeup shades that will compliment your complexion.

You’ll be glad to hear that Lily Lolo have launched their 3rd shade of Natural BB Cream, and this one will be right up your street. Suitable for customers who currently wear our lightest shades of Mineral Foundation, the pale beauty balm will help blur imperfections and even skin tone.

Its becoming more fashionable to embrace a more natural skin tone, with celebrities like, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson and Dita von Teese all favouring the English rose look.

Our products cover a broad range of skin tones, but here are a few products that will flatter even the palest of skin.

BB Cream – Fair – £11.99

Foundation – Porcelain and China Doll – £13.49

When it comes to Blush, pale skinned beauties are lucky that they can either wear pink or oranges hues. For a little added shimmer try our pale pink Candy Girl Mineral Blush or Cherry Blossom which is a light peach shade. Remember that a little goes a long way with our blush, so apply in light layers.

If you need any advice about the correct shades for you, please contact our customer services team.

Parisian Spring Collection

April 16th, 2015

LL-BlogPost-Retina-SS15

Taking inspiration from the natural beauty make-up trends showcased on the S/S 15 catwalks, the new need-it-now collection is comprised of toned down burnt orange hues, beautiful beige’s and nudes that will flatter and compliment any skin tone.

Perfect for the spring time, the striking coral shades will help you achieve a fresh-faced complexion and a radiant, healthy sun-kissed glow.

The collection is comprised of, Pressed Eye Shadow shades, In for a Penny (Metallic, bronzy brown) and Buttered Up (Demi matte, Champagne); Natural Lip Gloss High Flyer (Burnt Orange) and Life’s a Peach (Matte, medium peach) Pressed Blush.

Because of the natural formulas, a lot of our products are multi use. Not only was the new Pressed Blush used on the apples of the cheeks, but also to add dimension to the eye lids.

To get this look, follow celebrity makeup artist, Jane Bradley’s guide:

“I blended Buttered Up across the entire lid, inner corners and lower lash line for a highlighted effect. Then I applied In for a Penny to the outer corner of the socket and take across the upper lash line. Make sure to blend any sharp edges.  I lightly swept Life’s a Peach across the apples of her cheeks for a fresh natural glow. High Flyer is a deep coral shade to give a fresh pigmented layer of colour and shine to the lips.”

3 steps to flawless looking skin.

January 16th, 2015

LL-BlogPost-Retina-3Steps

 

Here at Lily Lolo we are constantly offering shade advice and product recommendations to new customers, but by far the holy grail of beauty question asked is, ‘how do we get flawless looking skin?’.

We find that layering is the key and unlike other products that can feel thick and cloggy, our makeup has a weightless texture with remarkable staying power. The natural formulation of our best-selling products will minimise breakouts, blemishes and will help you achieve healthy looking, flawless skin in 3 simple steps.

Step 1 – Natural BB Cream

Our silicone free Beauty Balm contains nourishing and anti-ageing ingredients to moisturise your skin and give a healthy dewy glow as well as a super sheer layer of coverage.

Step 2- Mineral Foundation 

After allowing your BB Cream to dry, begin buffing your favourite shade of Mineral Foundation into the skin. Our Baby Buki Brush is great for smaller areas of your face such as eyelids and around the nose.

Step 3 – Finishing Powder

Our Finishing Powder instantly minimises fine lines and imperfections with a lightweight texture and natural formulation. Choose from a matte or dewy finish and apply with our Powder Brush in light downward strokes. It will set your makeup and help it to last throughout the day.

If you have any questions, our friendly customer services team are here to help.

Wow, we have LOVED 2014.

January 2nd, 2015

LL-BlogPost-Our2014

We started out 2014 a little apprehensive of the big announcement we were about to make, a total re-brand of the Lily Lolo you have loved and supported for a long time. Well, we just want to say a massive THANK YOU, because we couldn’t be happier with the reaction we received from all our loyal fans and stockists around the world.

Not only are we overwhelmed with all the praise, we have also earned recognition with several trade, reader voted and industry awards, many of which were for new products that only launched in 2014.

Our product development team spent a lot of time on new, improved formulas of our Eye Pencil and Mascara and these were amongst the big award winners.

We also launched our first liquid product, a Natural BB Cream, which went down a storm and is still continues to be one of our best selling products.

More pressed products were added to our range in 2014, twenty Pressed Eye Shadow singles, six Pressed Blush compacts and two stunning Limited Edition Eye Palettes for Christmas.

We went on the road towards the end of the year, traveling to trade shows in Dublin and Manchester. We enjoyed meeting some of our current stockist and also introducing Lily Lolo to some new stockists that loved it so much, they are now selling it in their own salons.

You can see that we have had a very successful and busy 2014, we can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store.

Thank you all for your continued support, we would like to wish you a very happy new year, and a beautiful 2015.

It’s hard to believe but we’ve improved the formula of our Natural Mascara.

We’ve taken our Lash Alert Mascara, tweaked a few ingredients, added a new application brush and voilà our New Natural Mascara.

With its lash defining, volumising and lengthening effects you can create your perfect doe-eyed look.

There’s no need to worry if you have sensitive skin as this improved formula is fragrance, silicon and alcohol free and it doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals that can cause irritation.

Our Mascara is available in matt black and can be used as an everyday essential or by applying more coats; it will give you a more dramatic, party ready look.

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?

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.
