It’s okay to be sensitive. Whether you’re a contacts-wearer with watery eyes or are prone to blemishes, natural makeup solutions can save the day.

These 10 popular picks are from trusted brands that have stood the test of time. Even better, they’re not only sensitive to your skin’s needs but give plenty of thought and care to the planet as a whole.

  1. Everyday Minerals Jojoba BaseThe jojoba oil makes for a dewy finish and comes in a few different tints.
  2. Everyday Minerals Semi-Matte BaseThis is a nice in-between finish – not too dewy or too matte.
  3. Everyday Minerals Pearl Finishing DustThis finishing powder gives your skin an overall radiance that’s so simple and pretty.
  4. Youthful Trends PrimerIt really wakes up your skin with a refreshing cucumber scent. Plus, it has caffeine and witch hazel for perfecting skin tone.

  6. Mineral Fusion Concealer DuoAs the name implies, you get two different shades in one to customize to suit your skin tone. The coverage is amazing and won’t irritate skin.
  7. Alba Botanica CC Cream Tinted Mineral Perfector in Fair to LightWith SPF 15, no animal testing, parabens or sulfites (to name a few!), this is the perfect lazy-day coverage. Just add a little mineral powder on top and you’re good to go!
  8. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in PetuniaNot only does it provide moisture – like a chapstick should – but offers a beautiful pink hue that looks good on anyone. It’s a very natural lip tint, so even color-phobes will love it.
  9. Benecos Natural LipstickThese lipsticks are very creamy, almost like a balm with a bit of shine and a rich hue.
  10. Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Perfume & Roll-On PerfumeOnce you look good, you have to smell good. I love this particular scent so much that I had to get the spritz bottle and The natural-smelling, true-to-gardenia aroma is fresh and lasts all day.
