Whether we use makeup every day or only on special occasions, women love to feel beautiful. It doesn’t matter if you’re a vegan, an environmentalist, allergic to non-organic additives (like my mother!), or just want to do something a little healthier for yourself, organic makeup products are a great way to add that little something extra to your beauty routine. Although I have to be honest and tell you that I haven’t tried many of these, YET, I have compiled a list of my must try/haves to share with you.
Here are, in my opinion, the top 10 must have organic makeup products of 2014:
Physicians Formula Organics Mascara:
This product is 100% free from harsh chemicals, preservatives, fibers, and parabens and claims to be hypoallergenic (I concur!). The mascara resists smudging, doesn’t weigh down lashes, and comes with 100% recyclable packaging (even the brush is recyclable!)
Physicians Formula 100% Natural Origin Tinted Moisturizer:
Lightweight and all natural, this moisturizer leaves the skin soft and smooth without much (if any) need for added base.
Zuii Organics Flora Lip Tint:
An Australian company, Zuii Organics makeup is made is essential oils, flower bits, minerals, and vitamins. The Flora Lip Tint has 9 possible color choices and each one contains Vitamins E and C, moisturizers, and a high gloss finish.
100% Pure Cosmetics Powdered Blush:
Made from all organic materials and colored by fruit pigments, 100% Pure Cosmetics are light, nutrient rich, and smell pretty good too! Their powdered blush comes in a range of fruity colors that apply easily, don’t absorb harsh chemicals into your skin, and look great.
Zuii Flora Eye Shadow:
Beautiful, natural colors are a timeless tradition in makeup, and these pops of floral color are anything but plain!
100% Pure Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer:
With this bronzer you can have a healthy glow, your skin soaks up natural antioxidants of the cocoa bean, and it leaves your skin feeling soft and smelling great.
Earth Lab Cosmetics Multi-Purpose Powders:
Coming in a multitude of colors and made from mica and iron oxides, these powders can be used as eye shadow, lip gloss, blush, and even nail polish!
Zuii Organic Makeup Remover:
Lightweight and able to be used on your entire face (yes, even your EYES!) this all natural remover moisturizes as it removes the day’s makeup
Ecco Bella Flowercolor Lipstick:
Made with vegetable waxes, oils, and mineral pigments, this lipstick goes on lightly and smoothly, all 17 colors are naturally preserved and moisturizing.
100% Pure Cosmetics Creamstick Eyeliner:
I’m a sucker for eyeliners with deep, true colors that are easy to apply, don’t pull at my eyelid, and don’t cause my eyes to itch all day. These gorgeous and all natural liners meet all of those requirements and more!
I chose these cosmetics because they are (mostly) gluten free, all chemical free, vegan, and/or actually completely made from food grade ingredients. Not only will your skin’s health benefit from the vitamin and mineral rich ingredients, but you can feel good about going ‘green’ in the process.
