With natural looking and time-saving makeup trends on the rise, there is no surprise a new ultra luxurious makeup brand that combines both would have hit shelves in sleek, black tins of heaven soon enough. However, it is a little surprising this insanely awesome concept was designed and launched by two teenage sisters! Yes, that's correct, 15 and 17 year-old Ally and Taylor Frankel are the young, fresh faces and minds behind Nudestix. Nudestix is a new collection of creamy crayons that are easy to apply, blend and are almost like a lipstick, eyeliner, blush and shadow all in one. Perfectly portable in a tin with a mirror and a sharpener, for about $24, you are "selfie" sufficient with this brilliant brand!
How did teen sisters invent lux makeup brand Nudestix? Ally and Taylor have the genetic makeup for makeup, if you will. Their mother is Jenny Frankel, a successful beauty executive for over 20 years who took some time off from work to spend more time with her girls. Mom started noticing the nontraditional approach her girls used when applying makeup and started asking some questions. Her curiosity and past experience, along with the girls' passion to create something in their words where "crayola meets Chanel," inspired something huge! Together they came up with the user-friendly collection that is also easy on the wallet. Although each crayon is around $24, each one can be used for multiple things. The girls especially love the highlighters because they can also be used as liners or for contouring. They have the perfect amount of gold according to which color you choose!
These girls are definitely revolutionizing the way we think about and use makeup. From using multiple brushes and wearing layers of concealers and powders to swiping a crayon, smudging some lines, and maybe adding some mascara, they are encouraging natural, fresh faces everywhere. Young models now are baring their natural skin and using makeup to enhance their features, not cover them up. Ally and Taylor set out to do the same and we think they have the right idea! You can purchase Nudestix at Space NK.
