Ethical Beauty on Wild Hearts Runway with Blać Cosmetics

Luxe cosmetics, with a conscience. Introducing Blać Cosmetics, a beauty brand designed in New Zealand and now sold worldwide. With ethical cruelty-free makeup at the forefront of Blać‘s mission in the beauty industry, the team have outstanding products for professional makeup artists and everyday use. Both their Pro and Organic ranges are designed to make you look and feel effortlessly gorgeous on your skin.

“Think premium, luxurious, long-lasting products that don’t irritate, smudge or go powdery. Products that are simple, effective and easy to use.”

We had the pleasure of having Blać Cosmetics as our Beauty Partner for Wild Hearts this year, with a talented team of Makeup Artists creating the ultimate bridal beauty look for our Wild Hearts Runway at The Cloud on Auckland’s Waterfront in September.

As we start to shop our beauty essentials for the Summer, we decided to sit down with Blać Founder and talented Makeup Artist Krystal Hayward, to get to know a little more about this dreamy NZ beauty brand. Skincare can be complicated, however Blać have made wedding prep simple with their top tips on routine for your skin in the months leading up to your wedding day.

Firstly, tell us about your gorgeous brand and your mission in skincare and beauty.

Blać is one of the brands of choice for professional makeup artists – which makes sense, considering it’s the brainchild of one of NZ’s best.

100% paraben-free, cruelty-free and ethically sourced, Blać is backed by conscious values. Because why should animals be harmed in the name of beauty? And why does skincare & makeup have to be so damn complicated?

You’ll find our goodies in makeup kits across the world, but you don’t need to be professional to enjoy Blać. Both our Pro and Organic ranges are simple, effective, and easy to use. They’re designed to look & feel effortlessly gorgeous on your skin – and they don’t irritate, smudge or go powdery, because we use only the best (and most sensitive-skin-friendly) ingredients.

Think luxe cosmetics, with a conscience. Luxe cosmetics, for every skin type

You have a big focus on cruelty free makeup, can you please share with us the story behind this brand moral and how you maintain this throughout your new ranges?

We are have been very careful to only work with manufactures that pride themselves on using ethical procedures and ingredients 

I have a huge passion for animals and their welfare so being a brand that does not test on animals is extremely important to me.

Are there best sellers or unique products you’d love to tell us about? 

Our best sellers are:

What is your favourite Blac product for creating a gorgeous glowy skin look?

My fav products for creating the perfect glow are the skin perfecting foundation and the illuminating blush & Contour pallet.

What are your top tips for skin prep leading up to a wedding and how can our couples take care of their skin in the prepping months?

The most important info I give to my brides for skin prep is one, drink a lot of water over the weeks leading up to the wedding, and two start a good skin care routine 3-6 months before hand this will ensure your skin is used to your routine and the products you apply.

What is a must have Blac product for everyones handbag on a wedding day?

Do you have any teasers on what is next for your brand?
