Natural Makeup Solutions

October 21, 2016

I love makeup.

Ever since I got my first costume makeup kit at 5 years old, I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to wear it for real.

Something I am very committed to in regard to makeup is keeping it natural. And I don’t mean only doing natural looks, but making sure the products I use are pure and natural and something I feel good putting on my face.

We all know that makeup usually contains a laundry list of chemicals (not all bad necessarily) that if they work, we really don’t want to think about the side effects. I’ll leave you to do your own research, but I say why risk harmful effects when there are so many great natural options?

Ever since I started wearing makeup I’ve been on the hunt for quality natural makeup brands, and even though this is an ongoing process, I’ve found some great brands that I love to use and am so happy to share with you!

To start with, Cowgirl Dirt! I ordered my very fist makeup from them and I’m glad I did. They have a collection of mineral-based products that not only enhance your natural beauty, but also contain vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that nourish your skin. My personal favorite is the eye shadows. If you want cute-branded, natural and nourishing makeup, check out Cowgirl Dirt.

Pacifica is my current favorite! All their products are natural & vegan, and they have the prettiest ethereal theme. My personal favorites are the dream big mascara, concealer, and universal powder. They also have skincare and perfume, so they’re basically a one-stop-shop for your natural beauty needs! Check out Pacifica soon!!

This is a new brand for me which I am very excited to try! 100% Pure has a gorgeous selection of products, many of which are pigmented by fruits and veggies – how fun is that? All products are 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins. In their own words, “health food for your skin.” They also have skin care and hair care.  Since I haven’t personally used them yet, let me know if you have and what you think! Check them out here

You’ve probably seen PF before at the grocery store or local drug store – in a few words, they are a healthier version of your regular drugstore makeup brands. They are probably the least “natural” of the list, but if you have more of a drugstore budget but still want something better for your skin, they are the best. Check out Physicians Formula

Enjoy! If you have a natural makeup brand you love, please share in the comments!
