Natural beauties need natural beauty products. Why? Because what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. Your precious skin (aka your body’s largest organ) deserves the crème de la crème, so it stays healthy and youthful. Thankfully, Vitacost makes it easy to find the products that are thoughtfully formulated to gently care for your skin, helpless animals and the planet. You’ll find brands like Pacifica, bareMinerals and Mineral Fusion, which offer makeup and body care made of ingredients you’d recognize. From primer to perfumes, these are the best natural beauty finds…
I really enjoy Pacifica's 100% vegan perfumes, because they smell so fresh and so sincere to their scent. There’s no chemical after-burn – just a pleasant, fresh-from-the-garden aroma. Pacifica also offers makeup I love, love, love! The Concentrated Concealer helps tone down blemishes and redness, while the Universal Powder is a lightly tinted, everyday cover-up.
This is a well-known mineral makeup brand, so I was delighted to find it on Vitacost.com! I use their lipsticks, eyeshadow quads and blushes on a regular basis. The bareMinerals blushes are very similar in color and smoothness to the bigger beauty brands but are, obviously, a much healthier alternative.
The Real Techniques Core Collection Brush Set comes with four great tools you’ll use every single day, including the contour brush, loose foundation brush and buffing brush. Check out my video on makeup contouring to see these bad boys in action.
Though I use several Mineral Fusion makeup products, their Concealer Duo is what I use every day. It sets very well and offers anti-aging ingredients. I especially appreciate that their products are certified cruelty free, so no testing on animals or animal-derived ingredients.
For anyone with sensitive eyes, Benecose Natural Eye Liner in Midnight Blue is a must-have! The organic ingredients are gentle, while the deep blue helps counter any redness in your eyes. When I first started switching over to natural makeup, this was the first brand I tried – and I haven’t looked back!
