When it comes to make-up, our clients tend to fall in to two categories: those who wear it, and those that don’t. With so many brands, colours, shades, and products to choose from, stepping into stores like Sephora or even strolling the drugstore can become overwhelming. Luckily, no matter how much or little you wear it, we have a one-stop solution: Colorescience.
Whether you’re heading to work or a night on the town, Colorescience Mineral Make-Up is versatile, easy to use, and (more importantly) won’t pollute your skin. As medical estheticians, we see a lot of people visit us with breakouts and irritations that have been caused by using cosmetics that are full of fillers and cheap chemicals. However, Colorescience is so pure and natural that it actually nourishes and protects your skin while also offering the same coverage as regular make-up. That’s why we always remind clients to use half of what they would typically use with other brands of make-up because with Colorescience a little goes a long way.
Though we carry an extensive list of products from this line (we really love it!), we’re listing just a few of our favourite products that are staples in our make-up regime. Plus they’re easy to pack in your purse when you’re on the go!

Urban Body Laser’s Colorescience Must-Haves

EYES
Colorescience Pallettes

Colorescience palettes are designed for correcting and highlighting all areas of your face. Apply as a concealer, corrector, eye shadow, highlighter, bronzer or foundation all in one easy-to-pack and convenient package.
This kit contains five complimentary colors combining pressed minerals designed for your skin tone and condition. Each colour can be used separately or blended to cover or camouflage any imperfections like blemishes, dark circles, scars and broken capillaries.
Mascara

Every woman seeks long, voluminous lashes without smudging or clumps. Colorescience Mascara has created the perfect formula that provides buildable coverage to thicken and extend your lashes without looking like you have tarantula eyes. This product is unlike any other mascara we’ve ever used, as it resists humidity, water, and smudging while holding and lifting your lashes for that sought-after ‘fringe’ appearance.

COMPLEXION
It doesn’t get any easier than the Loose Mineral Foundation. Just sweep the brush over your entire face and neck in a circular motion and you’ll have lightweight coverage that’s not only water resistant, but also contains SPF 20 to protect your skin.

To finish the look, add a rosy glow with the Loose Mineral Cheek Colore (Just Barely) or a sun-kissed tan with the Mineral Bronzer. Both of these products contour and highlight your complexion by adding richness and warmth. Plus they contain Vitamins A & E, pearl powder, and oat powder that help sooth and condition the skin.

LIPS
Pucker up with the Sunforgettable Lip Shine with SPF 35. Lips are given a natural shimmer that brings out the natural shade of your lip colour with a glossy finish.
Final Step: Set It!

A few spritzes of the Setting Mist keeps make-up and sun protection in place all day and activate the vibrancy of minerals for an ultra-natural, luminous look.
These are just a handful of products from Colorescience that we recommend, but to learn more about which shades and other types of make-up they offer feel free to contact our medical estheticians for a free consultation.

We sat down with one of our staff members, Miranda, and asked her what her favourite skin care and beauty products are that she can’t live without.

What do you love most about working at Urban Body Laser?
The environment, I’m lucky to work with a great staff and awesome clients!
What’s your favorite Colorescience product and why? 

The Pressed Mineral Foundation. It has the best coverage and feels virtually weightless.

What’s your favorite Osmosis product and why?
Quench. This is a great moisturizer for me because I have super dry skin in winter and oily in summer. Quench provides the perfect balance for both dry and oily like mine.

What’s my favorite treatment and why?

Laser hair removal (light sheer) because its less painful and can get at my lighter hair, and of course in the long run I won’t have to shave ever again!
