Wearing JAFRA ROYAL Luxury Lipstick in ‘Coral Chic’

It’s not always easy to wear a bold lip but Helen does it so effortlessly. Being the 2019 Pantone color of the year, Coral Chic is the color that will give your look—or makeup bar—a  pop of brightness.
If red isn’t your thing, consider warming it up with this shade.. It will still accentuate the unique shape of your lips (just like red does), and give you a unique sunny glow. Holiday dinners with the family are almost here, are you ready to add the ‘chic’ in Coral Chic? I think so!
Helen, thank you for sprinkling JAFRA into your life and being a creative inspo to all of us!

2020: The Year To Renew Ourselves!

I just love the turn of a new year! After vacation and downtime during the holidays… every year gives us a fresh start to reinvent ourselves and get closer to becoming the ultimate person we want to be! What are your New Year's resolutions? Who will the new you be?
 
This is a wonderful time to write down new goals, envision new horizons, and raise the bar! I grew up with my grandmother Jan Day who believed that everyone had the right to reach any goal without limit. This has always been one of my favorite quotes by her because it makes me question “what ARE my limits”? We all place limits on ourselves consciously and subconsciously. Every year I try to refocus and raise the bar for myself, letting go of old beliefs which hold me back and reinforcing new ones which will lift me to new heights.
 
One of the best ways to get rid of old unfavorable habits is to direct ourselves into new experiences. Sometimes “new” feels uncomfortable but “new” always evokes change and opportunities. Every year I remind myself of this and write down experiences that I would like to have, goals I would like to reach, and mountains I would like to climb, metaphorically speaking! Years ago I read a book, “Write It Down and Make It Happen”. Ever since, I started writing down my goals and wishes in a journal. Writing down new goals has a magical effect, it makes ideas more tangible, and in essence it is the first step to making it happen! One of my favorite parts about doing this exercise is going through old pages in my journals years later and having a sense of pride when most of the dreams on my list that seemed impossible at the time... actually came true because I kept pursuing them more and more each year. 
 
Moving on into 2020 let's remember who we are, where we are going, and most of all, let's climb higher than we ever have before. After all, we all have that right, let’s use it!

A New Fragrance to Inspire Creativity

Creativity is a funny thing. It drives us to insist on making things most friends would say “uh, no thanks, I think I could buy that. It pulls us toward craft stores – sometimes from miles away.  Sometimes it fills us with self-doubt about the things we do, wanting to undo and re-do them until they are perfectly created to match the image we have in mind.  
 

For JAFRA though, we saw the opportunity to introduce a one-of-a-kind fragrance through the lens of a few creative artists. One of the purposes for our  Art=Life His & Hers Fragrance is to awaken the  inner artist that lives within us. These fragrances are an olfactive tribute to the world’s creative spirits (a.k.a all of us!). With notes of vibrant pink apple and sheer jasmine petals layered together with rich, red cedarwood, the woman’s fragrance carries the creative energy of orange with the fearless femininity of pink. On the other hand, the men’s fragrance carries notes of fresh yellow grapefruit and wild blue lavender, mixed with deep green oakmoss. These scents inspired the color verdigris which combines the confidence of blue with the spontaneity of green. 
 

 

We noticed how these fruity and woody notes inspired our JAFRA team! So, we decided to test these fragrances on a group of artists. Without any information on the fragrance, we shipped small unlabeled fragrance samples to artists and had them create artwork based off the scent. We wanted to see how inspired Art=Life made these artists with just a spritz or inhale of the fragrance. 

 

Here’s what our artists had to say:

When I saw the colors for the JAFRA art collaboration, I immediately knew that I would do one of two possible projects: flowers or mermaids. A coral-pink and light cerulean-blue. But then my mind told me to slow down. Wait. Let’s wait until we get the sample and actually smell the fragrance before we go planning the project. [anyone else refer to themselves as the royal “we” when they talk to themselves?] 
 

I live in a beautiful mountain town in Colorado, and in the winter here we tend to get some “winter wind. The day the fragrance samples arrived it was a little breezy, so that may have added to my pre-conceived notion that this project should be beachy…but when I smelled the samples, I definitely got tropical vibes! A spritz of citrus, coconut, the warmth of something muskyall of these notes made me feel beachy. I was set on my mermaids.  
 

I have to admit, although I love fragrances (the packaging, the scents, the stories, etc), I am not an “expert” and I really worried about whether or not my assessment of the notes of the fragrance was accurate. After a few days of agonizing about if my nose knows [😉] I remembered one of my favorite quotes about creativity: “Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties” – Erich Fromm 
 

When I set out on starting on the mermaids, I decided to make a pair – male and female – since the fragrance samples came in a matching set as well. Their fins and hair based on the color palette of the project to match each other as well.  Overall, I think this project went… swimmingly.

“I thought it was a challenge drawing something based on your sense of smell! But inspiration comes from so many places! So, it was just eliminating another sense for me that really helped! Closing your eyes and smelling the scents really helped get a clear vision of what I wanted! The scents are absolutely lovely, the coral scent is very floral and light almost peaceful! It is what really drives the relaxing side to my piece! The other scent was more cool and laidback not too strong but just enough, it was very lovely as well! So, I have this image of someone chill but in this tranquil sort of state. It's what drove my art piece into what it was.”

The fragrances reminded me of spring, when flowers are blooming, and everything seems fresh and new. This fragrance gave a sense of newness, when life begins. It wasn’t easy drawing what I smelled but I could sense that the colors would be soft, just like the scent. So, when I think of soft colors, I think of pastel which then made me think of spring with bursts of pinks and blues. 

 
 
 

 “I thought of flowers and plants. It was easy because I like to paint, and I’ve been doing it for a long time (2 years). It was fun because I like to paint.”

"When I first got my hands on the perfume and was able to smell it, I was taken away to a fantasy land with brightness and a hint of depth. It was vividly beautiful but simple enough to not overpower itself. Almost like the beautiful simplicity of the super complex wings of a butterfly. Designing a piece on a scent alone was such a unique experience. I took a whiff of the perfume and was taken to a beautifully colored wonderland full of these beautiful butterflies. "

 

 We’d like to thank all the artists that participated in this collaboration. If Art=Life has inspired you, we’d love to see your masterpiece! Make sure to tag @jafracosmetics for a chance to be featured!
