Makeup Solution for Your Lifestyle

When we think about what we stand for and why we’re a makeup solution for your lifestyle, five things come to mind: Customization, Mess-Free Makeup, A Simple Routine, Lightweight + Travel Friendly, and For Your Lifestyle. 

Want to know what we mean by that? Like our makeup, it’s pretty simple:

Customization is essential.

No one person leads the same day-to-day lifestyle, so we don’t think your makeup should be one size fits all. No matter what set you’re building on trestique.com, whatever your makeup needs are, rest assured it’ll be exactly what you want…not what we think you want. That’s the beauty of building your set on our website—you get to customize and curate the shades, products and number of things you want. 

Messy makeup products are so yesterday. 

That’s why every single trèStiQue essential was built to avoid, you guessed it: mess. Each 2-in-1 full size product comes with makeup on one end and an applicator (or extra makeup!) built-in to the other end—everything you need to use and apply your makeup, no need to go grabbing for extras. The crayons seal with a magnetic cap, meaning they don’t open unless you’re using them. And the products themselves are also shaped like crayons so you can draw them directly onto your skin—no need to use your fingers if you don’t want to. And best of all? The applicators that are built-in to the crayons are removable, so take them off whenever you need to clean them, and twist them back on when you’re ready to use it again—easy! 

Simplicity is key. 

When it comes to our makeup routine, we want something that is simple. Each of our routines are easy to do, quick to finish, and still offers the results you love. Whether you’re looking for a new everyday routine, or the perfect touch-up on the go—want to find out which routine is right for you? Take our quiz! 

Where are you headed next?

Every single trèStiQue product is TSA-friendly and even the Essential 8, our most complete routine, weighs less than half a pound. We know that your makeup needs to go with you wherever you do, whether you’re in the car picking up your kiddos from school or you’re boarding a flight to your next adventure—make sure to pack your trèStiQue in your suitcase and in your purse!

What’s your lifestyle?

At the end of the day, makeup needs to work for whatever lifestyle you lead. Whether you’re balancing parenthood and the million other things you do every day , traveling the world and living out of one suitcase, or jumping from one meeting to the next trying to grow your career—just know that this makeup is going to work for you, not against you.

Women We Love: Sophie Elgort

We got together with Sophie Elgort, the beautiful and talented photographer (and mommy to be!), to ask her questions about work, travel and the products she can’t live without!

How would you describe your personal style?
Laid back but polished. It can be a dress or jeans…as long as it is body flattering I am open to try it.

Has pregnancy changed your style? Have you been wearing things you never would before or trying new styles?
I have  been wearing a lot of bodycon so people know that it is a bump and not too many cookies!

If you have ten minutes to pack for a last minute trip, what are you must-have items you can’t travel without?
Dry Shampoo, headphones, my small camera, my mini Le Pak with my tréStiQue Essentials, moisturizer, and a Luna or Kind Bar.

You love to travel…what is your favorite place you have been in the past few years. Why?
Tanzania and Rwanda. It was such a different and new experience that I got to take with my family.

Your favorite NY spot to just relax and take a minute for yourself?
My apartment, because I can just turn off and have my sanctuary in the middle of all the chaos.

What is your favorite part about your job?
I really love the different people and collaborating with all the teams and the subjects and being on set with different people. It is always a different day.

You have a non-profit called Through Our Lens? How did that get started and why are you so passionate about it?
My friend Carolyn Pride and I wanted to do our part with diversity in front of the lens. After much discussion, we thought it would be best to start with those behind the lens. Through Our Lens works with high school girls interested in photography that want to get involved in fashion and media. These girls are from low income and racially diverse backgrounds who might not otherwise not have access to these industries.

How do you want people to get involved?
We are always looking for people to partner with and for people to volunteer. We are also looking for camera companies that can donate cameras or people/companies that want to help fundraise so we can continue to support our initiative.

Note: tréStiQue recently participated in a video shoot at Nylon with Through Our Lens. We provided makeup services (and a makeup artist) for the models participating in the mentees’ shoot. It was an incredible day, and one we are very proud to have been part of!

What is something we may not know about you?
As well as being behind the camera, I also love being on air and have done quite a few expert segments. I’d love to be a regular contributor on a show talking about fashion, photography, etc

If you could tell your 21 year old self some advice what would it be from all the experiences you have had?
I am still working on this now, but in terms of stuff for work…to just get stuff done, don’t worry about it being perfect or finding the perfect time to start. Just start, finish and get things done. People can talk about ideas forever and not get things done.  So just try it!

How would you describe your current makeup routine? What are the products you never leave your house without?
A lot of days I don’t wear any makeup. And if I am going somewhere, I often do just the brows and a little mascara. I love the tréStiQue Brow Pencil and Brow Gel. And I always use moisturizer. Morning and night.

Thanks Sophie for the great chat!
