Do you have a foundation to match my skin?
Etniq carrys colors and shades for all women from the vanilla bombshells to the darkest velveteen chocolate misses out there. If your color doesn't exist yet in my collection, I'll custom make it for you. that's how dedicated I am to your happiness!
Why did you create Etniq when there are so many other brands already?
I'd seen fun and funky makeup lines before but none of them seemed to have the care I had about harmful and unnecessary ingredients. I love playing up my beauty but I didn't want to sacrifice my belief in natural, holistic living to do so.
I'd seen the mineral lines as well and yes they cared about your skin but in these, I couldn't find that true sense of funky uniqueness. I couldn't find a line with colors and shades that expressed who I am, that unleashed the inner model within me!
So I decided to create my own.
You mention water a few times throughout your descriptions. How do you use it with the makeup?
The vibrancy of any mineral shimmer, blush, or matte shadow/liner can be intensified by simply using water when you apply. There are two easy ways to do this:
1. You can buy a spritzer bottle (S1 at most dollar stores) and simply spray your brush before you dip it into the mineral powder.
2. You can run the brush under a faucet or dip it into a bit of water, dab it onto paper to absorb the excess water, and then dip it into your minerals.
Let the brush be wet to touch but not dripping. When you apply the minerals, the colors will give you that "pop" effect. Try it - it's so much fun!
How do your shipping charges work?
I want to provide you with the best value for your earnestly earned dollars and give you the best deals possible.
So with this in mind, I've devised my shipping so that you spend very little getting your products to your doorstep.
All foundations and setting powders are automatically shipped free of charge.
Why do I do this?
I really want you to experience minerals and I don't want money to be your barrier. Foundation is the foundation of why minerals are so amazing and so I'm willing to eat the shipping cost so that you can experience how beautiful you really are.
When you order 2 or more of these items - Shimmers, Bronzers, Matte liner/Shadows, Blushes - I give you a $5 off shipping voucher upon checkout (when you use Google Checkout). The coupon code is discountshipping and is good everytime you buy. In most cases this will result in FREE Shipping for you, so go ahead, splurge and treat yourself to two things instead of just one!
I ship all makeup kits for free to save you the hassle of dealing with high shipping fees when all you really want is fun makeup to play with. I handle the cost of getting it to you.
I'm having a problem with something - help please!

Why choose minerals instead of "regular" makeup?
I use non-organic, inert materials in my products which mean bacteria, mould or fungus will not grow, extending the shelf life far beyond most other forms of makeup.
The ingredients are not absorbed by the skin but actually adhere to it so you have perfect coverage all day and the knowledge it wont build up in your body organs.
Because of how the minerals layer it is able to: even out skin tone, cover acne, acne scarring, rosacea, age spots, spider veins etc.
Oily skin benefits from using minerals as it does not dry out the skin creating overactive sebaceous glands which lead to further breakouts. Non-acnegenic, it does not clog pores and you can even sleep in it!
I'm a dancer. Will this makeup stay after a night of tearing up the floor?
Yes! This is one of the main reasons I created this line. As a dancer myself, I want to be able to dance my heart out and not worry that my makeup is running all down my face afterwards. Etniq is created so that it stays in place no matter what. Just dab your face to absorb any moisture (from sweat or water if you're swimming) and you are good to go.
What is bismuth oxychloride and what's the big fuss about it?
Bismuth oxychloride is a substance often used in mineral makeup formulations by some of the larger mineral cosmetic companies. It's been known to cause irritation, itching skin, rashes, and breakouts and can also give an overly shiny look that is often undesirable. On top of this, it can easliy accentuate pores instead of minimizing and concealing them. It really is an unnecessary ingredient and so Etniq formulations are made without it.
Do you offer any guarantees?
Yes. You will love your new makeup. I will help you learn the tricks of applying it to perfection and if you are still not happy, I will refund your money. This is how much I believe that Etniq is your answer!
What does Etniq mean?
I chose the name Etniq because to me it embodies the wonderful value of the uniqueness in every one of us. We all come from different backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life - which makes us multi-faceted and filled with a depth that is always growing as we grow. Etniq symbolizes and celebrates the way we amazing women bring all the various elements that create us into a beautiful kaleidescope of poised, graceful, exquisite, "hip"- notic STYLE. I just love how we do it!
