Glossier: A New Generation of Skincare

By Bre Harrigan

If you have any social media, you have probably seen an ad or post about Glossier. A new, pocket friendly business has taken the world by storm. Founded by Emily Weiss (@emilywweiss on Instagram), Glossier makes skincare fun and easy. With slogans like “Skin is in” and “Skin first, makeup second”, a trend has been set worldwide. Dewy skin is the new matte, a healthy glow is the most attractive thing you can wear! With products such as the priming moisturizer ($22) , Milky Jelly Cleanser ($18) and soothing face mist ($18), Glossier has begun a skincare movement.

In the past, us girls have covered every single imperfection with full coverage, matte, pore clogging foundations. Now, Glossier teaches us that our imperfections make us unique and beautiful. Who cares if you have a pimple or two? Or if you just didn’t get enough sleep last night, resulting in dark under eyes? It gives us dimension! We don’t look at art and expect it to be perfect and pristine, so why look at yourself that way? Beauty should be easy and fun. Being able to sit in front of a mirror and apply makeup is one of the best things about being a girl (or boy!). There’s a reason every 90’s movie starts with a teen singing into a hairbrush and applying lipstick while dancing. Makeup is fun. Glossier has introduced another fun part of your day- a full skincare routine! Sticking to a skincare routine that is right for you can make your skin look and feel healthy and beautiful.

Shortly after launching as a company, Glossier decided to create makeup as well. However, their makeup products only enhance your natural beauty, they don’t hide it. Their most famous product at the moment is Boy Brow ($16). Boy Brow is a brow gel, more of a waxy formula, that gives your brows the perfect, fluffy, unkempt look. Starting with celebs such as Cara Delevingne, thick brows have kicked thin sharp brows to the curb. For now, the only place you can buy Glossier in store is the showroom in New York City. But, is where you can fulfill all of your beauty needs. The easy to use site shot the company to stardom, with crazy fast delivery and beautiful packaging. The women that work for Glossier are some of the most motivated and kind women you will ever meet! Everybody within the company as well as the social media is nothing but supportive. I strongly urge all of you to check out and fall in love with Glossier products as millions of others have.
