What kind of sun protection does Emani makeup offer?
Due to the the high concentration of titanium dioxide in our foundation, our makeup provides natural, physical blockage of the sun’s harmful UV rays with the equivalent of SPF20 protection. We recommend that you always use sunscreen before applying your makeup to maximize your protection.
Have any of your products been tested on animals?
Absolutely not! Emani is certified by PETA, and Emani products have never been tested on animals, nor will they be. Check out People for the Ethical Treatment of animals HERE.
Does your makeup work well in hot or humid weather? What about cold weather?
Whether you live in the humid climate of Florida, the dry heat of Arizona, or the cold weather of New England, Emani makeup will work perfectly to beautify, protect, and nourish your skin. Emani products have been tested in extreme climates and demonstrated to work flawlessly regardless of the weather. We have clients all over the world to attest to it!
How does Emani makeup work on acne-prone and problematic skin types?
While many cosmetics companies use ingredients that lead to breakouts or irritate sensitive, acne-prone skin, Emani’s unique formulas will not clog pores or worsen the condition of problematic skin types. Composed of soothing, non-comedogenic ingredients that balance the skin rather than irritate it, Emani makeup is ideal for oily, acneic skin. Just ask Michelle Doan, the founder of Emani Vegan Cosmetics who started the brand after her struggle with cystic acne and the inability to find makeup that worked without irritating her skin or causing breakouts.
Are Emani foundations suitable for older, aging skin?
In a word – YES! Emani uses soft, reflective, and light diffusing ingredients that obscure fine lines and wrinkles and fill in creases so your skin looks smooth, healthy, and youthful. Additionally, Emani makeup helps to protect the skin from extrinsic factors that cause aging. If you have dry skin, try Emani Liquid Foundation. Rich in organic oils, the nourishing foundation gives the skin a soft, hydrated, dewy finish while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Are the powders drying?
While many makeup manufacturers use inexpensive talc, which dries up on the skin and dulls the appearance of makeup, Emani Pressed Foundation and Crushed Foundations are talc-free. These formulas stay fresh all day and will not dry out your complexion. If you suffer from dry skin, try Emani Liquid Foundation. This moisturizing formula gives the skin a soft, dewy finish that lasts all day.
How is Emani makeup different from other brands?
It’s all about the ingredients. Emani uses only top-quality ingredients. While our ingredients lists are shorter, they include only the most effective components to give you high quality makeup without causing irritation. Emani makeup is free of harsh chemicals, dyes, and parabens, all of which are known to negatively affect your skin and overall health. Emani makeup creates a breathable barrier on your skin, protecting it from UVA/UVB rays and environmental pollutants while giving it a natural, radiant finish.
What brushes do i need to apply foundation?
We suggest that you apply our Liquid Foundation with The Emani V7 Liquid Foundation Brush. Apply Emani Pressed Foundation or Crushed Foundation with the Emani V8 Kabuki Brush or by using a makeup sponge for fuller coverage.
Is Emani makeup hard to apply?
Emani makeup glides easily across the skin for easy application every time. We’ve included instructions on our website to aid you in makeup application should any questions arise. Only Emani Crushed Foundation has been challenging for some. To apply, tap a small amount of the foundation into the lid of the container, and swirl the V7 Foudnation Brush into the cap. Then sweep across the face, focusing on blending it for a flawless, natural look.
Do Emani bases, foundations, and concealers give the skin an unnatural glow or shine like many other mineral makeup brands?
Absolutely not! While some mineral makeup manufacturers use bismuth oxychloride, which has been known to give the skin an unnatural shiny finish, Emani excludes the ingredient to provide your skin with a natural glow. If an Emani makeup product will give your skin a shine, it will be on purpose as with your Glitter Dust.
Do I need to use a moisturizer with Emani makeup?
Although Emani Vegan Cosmetics products are good for your skin, we recommend that you use a moisturizer every morning and night. Apply moisturizer with SPF protections prior to makeup application, and allow it to completely absorb. Not only will a moisturizer allow improved adhesion of Emani makeup for longer wear, but Emani makeup will lock in the moisture for lasting benefits by creating a physical barrier on your skin. If you’re looking for increased moisture, try Emani Hydrating Serum & Foundation Serum. These facial treatments not only prepare your skin for flawless makeup application, but they nourish it with moisture and protect it with antioxidants in the process.
Can I use Emani makeup after laser treatments, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels?
Emani foundations and makeup may be applied to the skin after the above procedures. In fact, it is encouraged. It is important that post-treatment skin is well protected from the sun and environmental elements. The gentle formulas in Emani products will not irritate sensitive, post-treatment skin and will aid in protecting it from the elements. As always, consult with your skin care professional in these cases to ensure you’re taking care of your skin the best way possible.
What coloring agents are used in Emani makeup?
Each rich, gorgeous shade in Emani makeup comes from minerals including iron oxides, titanium dioxide, and mica. We do not use FD&C (petroleum based) dyes, which irritate the sensitive skin around the eyes and have been known to clog pores and cause breakouts.
Does Emani use preservatives?
The only preservatives in Emani products occur naturally. Emani does not use parabens or other fillers to preserve our products due to their potential to irritate the skin and their linkage with health problems.
Are Emani foundations heavy?
Emani foundations are lightweight and breathable, providing superior, weightless coverage that looks natural and feels amazing. Emani clients are consistently amazed at how light and airy their skin feels after applying Emani makeup.
How long does Emani makeup last after application?
When applied correctly, Emani makeup lasts all day. It will not crease, smear, settle in lines, or clump around blemishes like other, less advanced liquid makeup. Apply over a moisturizer or Emani Primer Serum, and set using Emani Magic Sealer for maximized length of wear.
How does your makeup respond to different kinds of skin types?
Emani makeup includes natural silicones, oils, and moisturizers to lock moisture into the skin without clogging pores or irritating the skin. Regardless of your skin type, condition, or age, Emani provides an enhanced appearance that looks and feels healthy.
How long will a container of your foundation last me?
