MAKEUP AND SKINCARE FROM AUSTIN-BASED W3LL PEOPLE CAN HANDLE WHATEVER THE SUMMER THROWS AT US.
A true Austin original, clean cosmetics brand W3LL People now offers its products nationally in select Anthropologie, Whole Foods, and Target stores in addition to its two local studios, including its new space at Domain Northside. Here, cofounder Reneé Snyder shares her summer tips and must-have products.
On her beauty routine: “Women should be using a sunscreen daily. My favorite product is our Bio Tint MultiAction Moisturizer with SPF 30. I top it off with the Narcissist Foundation Stick, then polish the look with the oil-absorbing Realist Invisible Setting Powder.” Summer must-haves: “Altruist Foundation Powder is a weightless foundation powder that provides instant coverage with the least amount of effort. Bio Brightener Stick is pure magic—it creates a rested, bright complexion with one swipe. Nudist Color Balm in Clear Natural is perfect for summer.”
Go green: “Silicone and dimethicone found in most mainstream cosmetics stifle and coat the skin while [irritating] any preexisting skin conditions. Replacing those heavy silicones with natural and organic oil-based formulations leaves the skin feeling soothed and hydrated.”
