Whether you wear a little or a lot, makeup plays a very important role in most women’s beauty regimen. It must hold beautifully natural color, go on smooth and easy, and have staying power. And let’s not forget safety — organic makeup should also be made with the finest natural ingredients, just like healthy skincare, and contain no harmful synthetic ingredients.
But can this really be possible? Long lasting, even coverage and smooth application, gorgeous color, and good for you too? Yes it can!
Many companies now offer vibrant, natural colors in their makeup products, well-suited to all skin tones. When you begin looking at organic makeup lines, keep in mind that pure plant oils make for smooth application, while hydrating and protecting the skin. Also, make sure you look for long-lasting coverage, and for entire natural cosmetic lines that are made from organic and natural ingredients, free from toxins.
Add definition, gloss, or vivid color to your look by choosing a shade from a wide variety of organic lipsticks. Look for lip gloss that lends shine and color to any natural look – there are plenty of organic options.
We’re all looking for bright, brilliant eyes and with organic makeup products; your options are practically endless. From eyes shadows to eye shadow sticks, organic shadows deliver smooth color that’s natural and soothing for even the most sensitive eyes.
Organic makeup products for the face should encompass all you need for a flawless, radiant complexion. Make sure you look for a foundation that delivers light, natural coverage with skin hydrating ingredients. Pressed powder lends a smooth finish and you should be able to find organic shades for every skin tone.
Last but not least, the finishing touch to your look… nail polish. Many organic polishes are chip resistant, provide long-lasting coverage, and come in many stunning colors. Whether you’re looking for a pale pink or a deep aubergine, you’re covered. And many organic polishes are made without the three most toxic ingredients found in conventional polish — formaldehyde, toluene and colophony rosin.
Make sure you look for natural cosmetics that are made with safe, natural and organic ingredients, and are gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin!
