Best organic cosmetics
Healthy living has been on trend for years now, with good reason. What we put in our bodies can either make us feel energized or leave us feeling sluggish and sleepy. The same standards are being applied to cosmetics. Chemical-laden cosmetics can clog pores and give our skin allergic reactions we didn’t know were possible. Organic cosmetics kick harsh additives to the side and leave your skin enhanced with vitamins and minerals. Here we’ll tell you the best organic products on the market today so that you can skip the research and do something more exciting, like buying makeup.
bareMinerals Original Foundation SPF 15 (Around $28)
Winner of Allure’s Reader Choice Award for ten years in a row, this mineral-based organic foundation is free of preservatives and GMOs. Though it comes in powder form, when applied it leaves a dewy finish that can be built upon for fuller coverage. Additionally, bareMinerals’ line of makeup brushes makes it easy to follow their unique makeup application technique. Place a small amount of powder in the top, swirl your brush in, tap the excess, and buff it onto your face for a flawless finish. There are 29 shades of this foundation, so every skin tone can get that silky smooth look.
100% Pure Long Last Liquid Eyeliner (Around $30)
100% Pure is the most organic, natural makeup line on shelves today. Completely vegan, this brand uses fruit and tea leaves to dye and pigment their products. Their Long Last Liquid Eyeliner stands up to its chemical counterparts by proving to be long-lasting, smudge-proof, and completely waterproof. Also, 100% Pure cares about the health of your eyes, so this organic eyeliner has no synthetic additives.
W3ll People Expressionist Mascara (Around $22)
Created by a makeup artist, a dermatologist, and an environmentally-friendly entrepreneur, W3ll People understands that skin soaks up whatever you put on it. Their completely natural products are cruelty-free and have ingredients like aloe, chamomile, and green tea (all organic, of course). Their Expressionist Mascara comes in four lovely colors, and creates luscious volume. The rubber brush easily glides across each lash and coats evenly with pigmented product.
100% Pure Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick (Around 29$)
Sandstone, Currant, Cactus Bloom, and Pink Canyon are just some of the 19 colors that 100% Pure Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick comes in. Each organic lipstick is infused with vitamin E, shea butter, and cocoa butter to moisturize your lips while you look amazing. 100% Pure uses fruit pigments to create colors that pop and complement your incredible smile.
RMS Beauty Cream Eye Polish (Around $28)
The so-called “Makeup of Stars” RMS Beauty products are a staple of elite makeup artists. Their 100% certified organic products won’t harm your skin, and will leave your face looking glam. With shades like Utopia (gold shimmer), Lucky (copper peach), and Aura (metallic grey and amethyst), RMS Beauty’s Cream Eye Polish is out of this world beautiful. Advice: use your ring finger to lightly apply to your bare eyelids and dab a very small amount for best results — because in this case, less shimmer is definitely more.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream (Around $30)
This newer bareMinerals tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 is a winner of the 2017 Allure Best of Beauty Award. A BB and CC cream hybrid, bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream provides a dewy look for days when you want to appear makeup-less, and can be built upon for fuller coverage. Over time, this product boosts hydration, leaving your face moisturized and, as a result, rejuvenated. It comes in 16 shades and the tube lasts for a strangely long time, since you don’t need much gel cream to give you camera-ready flawlessness.
Let’s face it — in today’s world we need to be in control of what we’re putting in our bodies and on our skin. These brands and products give us the opportunity to look flawless and feel good about our choices.
