On the night of the 2017 Women’s March, Alexis Androulakis and Christina Basias watched the massive numbers of women and allies that came together across the world to march for equality. They imagined every human that marched donating and the change it would create, and it was an AHA moment. They saw an opening for activist beauty, and thus Fempower Beauty was born.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Color’Ink – Love this long lasting natural looking color that lasts without drying out my lips. My perfect shade is L111 Flawless, a neutral beigy nude.

And did I mention that it smells light and kind of fruity… For night time or on camera, I go with YSL Rouge Pur Couture. It’s a luxurious silky texture, the shades are pretty fabulous and it glides on beautifully, no lip liner needed.
How am I supposed to pick just one?!?!? For a daytime, I love Charlotte Tilbury’s “Bitch Perfect,” which is literally the only nude that works with my skin tone.

Many believe it’s best to scale back on the retinoids because of increased sun exposure during the summer, but this isn’t necessarily the case. According to Dr. Krant, “Retinoids don’t cause sun-related sensitivity—but the increase in cell turnover rate provided by this ingredient does reduce the
