There is a reason we love Elate Cosmetics at designHouse Salon! They embody the same goals and inner passions that we ourselves have. By placing a large emphasis on sustainability, green initiatives, and putting an end to animal testing, Elate is a leader in the green beauty industry. “Through healthy ingredients, sustainable practices, and wellness minded goals, we strive to build confidence through kindness, and allow you to create your own standard of beauty, (source).” This motto is apparent in all of Elate’s products and campaigns, and a strong sense of self is witnessed in the models themselves. The makeup has the ability to showcase each individual’s unique look and also provide a creative space.
Elate strongly encourages women to take that extra bit of time to turn putting makeup on into a ritual, rather than just another step in a busy routine. “We believe everyday routine becomes ritual when the action is more meaningful than the outcome. We believe true beauty is in the ritual itself, (source).” This approach to makeup application means making the healthiest choices for your skin and also feeling good about what you’re putting on your face. As stated by Joli Naturellement “If I had to use one green beauty make-up brand for the rest of my life this one is it, (source).” Women are busier than ever trying to balance their lives and also feel good about themselves. By making a morning routine that is usually interrupted by children or the chimes of a cellphone into a ritual it makes it an expression of self love instead. Elate truly offers products that are cruelty and toxin free, vegan, organic, affordable and sustainable. As mentioned in the popular blog by Laura Jane Atelier she loves that “all of the products are not only clean but reasonably priced which makes them accessible to everyone, (source).”
Elate’s philosophy and products themselves led the company to be the best option for a partnership with designHouse. By having a knowledgeable and talented in house Elate team, designHouse is able to offer not only the best salon services but makeup application as well. Whether it is a quick touch up or a full face makeover, Elate has the products that will stand up, while also being non-toxic and vegan. Here at designHouse we offer complimentary colour matching designed to help you find the perfect hues. This also provides a great starting point to slowly start switching out older toxic cosmetics for new non-toxic alternatives. We also offer Elate makeup applications, the “mini” includes lips, cheeks and a smoky eye. The “full” application includes a foundation match, contour, brows, lips, cheeks and eyes.
