Do The “Write” Thing With The Body Shop

Spread the love! From now through mid-February, visit The Body Shop stores to write a message of support to survivors of sex trafficking living at Somaly Mam Foundation shelters in Cambodia, Thailand and Laos through the beauty brand’s “Words of Hope” postcard campaign. It’s simple: Buy a card like the one shown for $1 (the full purchase price will also be donated to the charity), record an inspiring note, and the beauty brand will forward them to the victims when the campaign concludes.

Makeup shaped into pretty pebbles and pearls has been popping up everywhere recently—and it’s easy to see why. Not only do these faintly shimmery bronzer, blush, and highlighting powders give cheeks a gorgeous glow when applied with a brush swirled over the multi-tonal pigments, but they can also multitask. We’ve experimented with using individual beads as eye shadow, lip color (topped with gloss or balm), and luminizer on the inner corners of eyes, under the brows, and on the cupid’s bow. They’re just plain fun to use, like makeup should be! Here, a selection of showstopping spheres:
