Do you think all natural makeup brands are inferior? That they are more expensive? That they don’t work?
Allow me to introduce you to my favorite natural makeup brands – complete with recommends of what I have found actually work!
But before I lead you down the virtual makeup aisle, I’d like you to consider this: Your skin is the largest organ on your body. Most of what you apply to your skin gets absorbed into your body.
If you are using conventional products, you could be using as many as 500 chemicals on your body before breakfast.
As a mom of two daughters, I want to know the beauty products we are using don’t contain toxins or the chemicals that can disrupt hormones. Because this is important to me, I used the skin deep database to double check all products.
Here’s my natural makeup brands list and what I use:
1. Physicians Formula Organic Wear
Natural beauty products should leave you looking like a natural beauty.
Enter pressed powder. It goes on lightly and leaves your skin looking smooth.
What to try: Physicians Formula Organic Wear Pressed Powder
I had to include two Tarte products in my recommendations. I love both the cheek and lip stains. The colors flatter everyone. They go on easily and look natural. They cost a bit more, but they last forever.
3. Burt’s Bees
While I love the whole Burt’s Bees line, the Burt’s Bees lip balms top my must-have list.
Chapped lips aren’t attractive. Not to mention they hurt, can split and can even bleed. Which is why a good lip balm is perhaps my favorite product in my beauty arsenal.
I keep Burt’s Bees Lip Balm in my nightstand drawer and the last thing I do at night is swipe it on. The grapefruit scent makes me happy. Truly.
What to try: Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, Pink Grapefruit
4. Juice Beauty
What do you want out of a cleanser? Something that cleans without making you breakout or dry out?
This cleansing milk delivers. It removes makeup and leaves your skin feeling silky.
What to try: Cleansing Milk
5. W3LL People
I have dark circles under my eyes. DARK circles.
I’m embarrassed by them.
In fact, I’m so embarrassed that I can run the kids to school in my pjs, without brushing my hair, but I HAVE to put concealer on under my eyes.
And I’m not going to bring up how my two girls get the occasional pimple they want to cover.
What to try: Narcissist Concealer + Foundation Stick
If you aren’t using bareMinerals, it is affordable, works great, and gets high ratings in the skin deep database.
I’m recommending their eyeshadow. I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday. In fact, I only use it a few times a year.
But when I do go through the effort, I want it to go on smooth, to stay vivid and to stay put!
What to try: Eyeshadows 2.0 Duos
7. Vapour Organic Beauty
I feel naked with out eyeliner. This formula glides on plus it comes with a smudging tool in case you go for the smoky look.
What to try: Mesmerize Eyeliner with Smoky Eye Tool, Truffle
