Top 12 Natural Face + Makeup Products
When I was in my 20s, I never thought twice about what I was putting on my skin. I regret buying products that may have been bad for the environment, tested on animals or used synthetic products which were terrible for my skin. I am so much more conscious of buying products that are good-for-you (meaning no bad stuff) + environmentally + socially friendly.
It's taken me a long time to find the perfect products to add to my routine, and I carefully picked out the items below because I know you will love them as much as I do.
Below is a roundup of my favorite skincare and makeup products.
*This post has affiliate links, meaning if you choose to buy something, I will make a small percentage of the sale so I can continue to write and support my family (at no extra cost to you). It would mean the world to me if you like an item you see, to purchase it directly through my link.
P.S. I will be sharing in detail about a few of these products on my Instagram Stories, so make sure to pop by there today to tune in!
Top 12 Natural Face + Makeup Products
1 // Plant-Derived Retinol Serum: Even out your skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles and be kind to your skin & the environment while doing it by using this PLANT-derived retinol alternative that offers retinol-like results—without the skin irritation or sun sensitivity. It's safe to use while pregnant and nursing (make sure to double check with your doctor)!! I was so excited when I found this line + product.
2 // Facial SunScreen: I fell so much in love with this product from Biossance that I switched out my sunscreen and got a bottle from them. This sunscreen makes my skin look luminous, and it's super lightweight and acts as a makeup-priming mineral facial sunscreen that protects against those nasty UVA/UVB and infrared rays.
3 // Foundation: I used to use a foundation that made me look older and I hated how unnatural it looked. I love this RMS un-cover up foundation because it not only evens out my skin tone, but it actually minimizes the appearance of pores and rejuvenates skin! Don't forget to get THIS brush with it. It is designed to mimic skin-to-skin application so that it covers your pores seamlessly.
4 // Eye Polish: I love the look of this sheer, metallic glow that is achieved by using this eye polish The oil base helps to soothe and nourish the skin too!
5 // Bronzer: I love using this ultra-sheer bronzer to obtain that nice, healthy glow.
6 // Facial Moisturizer: Beauty products can definitely be an investment and it's great to know that there are products out there that are inexpensive, but that still work and don't have any of the bad stuff. I am in love with this vegan brand called Raw Sugar Living and use this moisturizer twice a day.
7 // Coconut Melt: I love using coconut oil, but I often find it to be quite messy. Meet Kopari Coconut Melt. It can be used from head to toe and is made up of 100 percent pure, organic, and unrefined coconut oil that melts on contact! No more heating up your kitchen oil. Can be used as a makeup remover, hair conditioning mask, belly balm, baby butter + more!
8 // Highlighter: I recently got this during the Sephora sale, and I am hooked. Who knew that mango butter and avocado could give your cheeks such a luminous glow! I use it every day!
9 // Lip Scrub: Living in the dessert for all of my life means one thing, dry skin! My lips are always chapped and I am finally finding relief with this agave lip scrub. Get the lip balm too!
10 // Eyeliner: This is the ONLY eyeliner I wear. It goes on seamlessly and the pigment is so rich it will last you a longggg time!
11// Natural Lipstick: Again, because my lips tend to be so dry, I also want a natural lipstick that is going to help to hydrate them all day long. Meet this line by Axiology. The ingredients (including organic avocado oil and organic coconut oil) soften the deepest layers of your lips.
12// Beauty Oil: This is a bit of an investment, but when I bought my eyeliner and foundation, they sent a sample and I was hooked. I use it morning and night. It provides excellent antioxidant protection.
