Being an independent salon, Indigo has the freedom to choose the best products out there. We are not brand exclusive, so we have the freedom to cherry-pick our favorites in each category. This series is going to unpack all the wonderful reasons we chose each brand on our shelves.
When we tell clients that we use Glo makeup, most have never heard of the brand, and the ones who have jump for joy. Our goal, in all things at Indigo, is to focus on wellness inside and out. Glo aligns with that goal perfectly. The entire line is infused with skincare, which you can absolutely feel. My skin tends to be on the dryer side, and I always struggle with finding a foundation with high enough coverage to cover my rosy complexion, that doesn’t leave my skin thirstier than before (looking at you, makeup line created by a *ahem* famous tattoo artist). After taking Glo off, I was surprised how soft my skin felt. Glo’s makeup base contain a vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract. As we all know, the healthier your skin is, the better your makeup looks, and when your makeup has skin care in it, the more you wear it, the better it looks.
If any of you use our other products, like Davines, Yoga Balm or Comfort Zone, you know with each of these, a little bit goes a long long way, which takes some adjusting. Our products are highly concentrated, so maybe the first time you used Davines at home you used a whole handful and found yourself rinsing for a good long while. I absolutely made that mistake the first time I used Glo. I squeezed a dime size out on the back side of my hand (about 5x the amount you need) and hated it because it looked cakey and thick. This was 100% operator error, and once I figured out how to use it I fell in love! A pea size can cover my entire face in full coverage? Is this real life? Your girl is on a budget, so having to purchase my makeup less is for sure a bonus.
Let’s also talk about their contour palette. I am, shall we say, contour challenged. They come in two shades: fair to light and medium to dark . Each palette comes with two contour colors (warm and cool) and two highlight colors (matte and shimmer), but the lifesaver is the map inside the lid with exactly where to put each. They are highly pigmented, just like their eyeshadows and blushes, so one palette will last you awhile. They stay put all day, and again, are so simple even those of us who struggle can use them with ease.
For those of you who love our furry friends, you’ll be happy to know that Glo has joined PETA’s “Beauty Without Bunnies” program, which means none of their products have been tested on animals, nor have any individual ingredients.
