With Earth Day on April 22nd, we’d like to share a few tips in helping you make the switch to leading a more eco-friendly lifestyle this year. By making these small changes, it can go a log way in helping Mother Earth breathe easier.
Hydrate (Through Reusable Cup & Straw of Course!)
Sipping through a straw isn’t just a trick makeup artist’s use so lipstick won’t come off. By drinking through a straw whenever possibly, you not only keep your pout perfect but you also help in the green effort of less plastic waste. Don’t forget to drink out of your reusable/travel cup too!
By not only eating cleaner, juicing and shopping with reusable bags, you’ll cut down on plastic wrapping and packaging along with putting more wholefoods into your body (think fruits and vegetables!)
Turn Off the Water
For every minute you have the water funning, two gallons of water go down you drain. To conserve water, multi-task – leave your face wash on while you wash the rest of your body, shampoo while you shave your legs. Or, simply set a kitchen timer to not spend too much time in the shower.
Be a Label Hound
Check the ingredients of your skin and shower products. Chemicals can be harmful not only to your skin but to the water and environment it is transported to. Try our popular H&H Brightening Polish, not with bio-friendly microbeads!
H&H Science products are dermatologist tested and approved, Ph balanced, cruelty free, chemical paraben free, non-comedogenic, medical-grade, made in the USA, and distributed locally by a family-owned business.

As weather warms up, its time to not only switch over your wardrobe, but transform you makeup routine as well. Play up the spring moods and temperatures and enjoy these subtle changes to your eye shadow, lips and foundation as you create a warmer, softer and fresher look.
Here’s a guide to trends you might see – and try for yourself!
Natural lashes are on their way out this season, and in with bold, 1960s Twiggy-inspired eye looks. To pull it off at home, begin with a thickening fiber-based mascara (H&H Science Lash Thickener) followed by a bold, volumizing mascara (H&H XLXL Mascara). Don’t be afraid to do more than one layer of mascara too!
Bright Colors in Surprising Places
In addition to the spring pastel hues, bold eye shadow designs have become braver this season. Give your eyes an ‘instant wakeup call’ by trying a bit of color under your eye’s water line and only at the inner corners. Try our new Eyeshadow Kit that you can build your own kit and choose your own colors!
Move aside lip balms, glosses and stains! 2018 marks the return of the traditional bullet lipstick. This means going back to your mom’s trusted purse staple. Matte is still ruling the roost but more wearable formulas give the lips more life than the flat mattes of winter. Look for bright pinks, corals and beige nudes. We recommend our Luxury Matte Lipstick, Satin Lipstick and Cream Lipstick lines.

Strobing is essentially the application of a shimmery highlighter on the high planes of the face, where light would naturally bounce off. Unlike the concealer-bronzer-contour makeup techniques that look great in photos, but unnatural and heavy in daylight, strobing works beautifully in real life because light is always catching and reflecting off your skin. It is a much easier technique to learn and the highlighter simply amps up the reflective glow.
How to Strobe:
Strobing should be the final step in your makeup routine. It goes on top of all the other products you are wearing, such as foundation, blush, etc.
Before you strobe, it’s really important to “mattify” the areas you don’t want emphasized, such as your forehead, chin and the tip of your nose. Otherwise, your whole face will have a greasy appearance. You will want to do this before you apply your foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream. You can also use it over foundation in order to further mattify certain areas after makeup application. My favorite oil-absorber is our H&H Science Ultimatte Finish Powder.
Our NEW H&H Science Luminizer Stick is a creamy, conditioning stick illuminator that highlights cheekbones, diminishes darkness under the eyes and provides the skin with a healthy glow. It contains Vitamins A, C & E that help to protect cells from free radical damage and aloe to soothe and condition skin.
It is Hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free and packed with antioxidants!
