It can be a little overwhelming and confusing when you first decide to switch your makeup to completely natural products, as there are a plethora of companies out there that are into promoting the whole ‘green’ image thing, BUT, a lot of these companies are misleading in their advertising and have products that are in many ways as bad as the conventional stuff.
So what’s a girl to do? 😒
Well, I hope this will help in some small way. I have compiled a list of a few trustworthy makeup brands from either end of the budget spectrum
Silk Naturals have a GREAT range of loose eyeshadow pigments, blushes, lip colours and other novelty products
The All Natural Face, similar in price point to Silk Naturals, but with a different variety of products, including creme foundation and creme blushes
Honeybee Gardens have some really awesome products, at very affordable prices!
Benecos is fabulous! High praise for this very affordable and innovative makeup brand
Natural makeup brand based in the UK. Lily Lolo products come in a wonderful range and look so high-end , yet are very reasonably priced.
Physician’s Formula Organic Wear is a very popular branch of makeup from the main line. Their ‘Fakeout’ mascara has now become a staple in my makeup collection
This brand has always intrigued me. Price point is very good and there are some interesting-looking products
A fairly new brand of makeup developed by natural beauty blogger iluvjesse444, who I have been following for some time. The range is continuing to expand, and there are now both powder and creme products
Probably on the higher end of affordable, but nevertheless very reasonably-priced products. I would love to get my hands on their eye-primer!
I’ve heard wonderful things about the mineral foundation and have order two shades, which are on their way! Just be wary of the mascara and lip luster, which are non-natural. If you stick with the powder, you should be fine!
Cowgirl Dirt- I always thought the name was funny, but apparently the products are good! 😉
Pumpkin and Poppy have some very cool products that are loved by many natural-makeup geeks! The oak bark contouring powder is just one example. Do be a bit careful though, because not ALL the products are completely natural. I’m pretty certain they are labelled though, allowing you to tell which ones are and which ones are not.
If you like a great selection of loose natural eyeshadows, this is a fabulous website! I also love how they have themed collections
No-one seems to have explored this brand much, but many of the products look intriguing. I would love to try their eyeshadow quads and natural creme concealer
Erzulie Cosmetics are an Etsy brand that have some cute and creative products
Alima Pure only offer powder products (apart from their lip colours), but their foundations come in pretty much every shade imaginable, and have received very favourable reviews
Gabriel/ Zuzu Luxe cosmetics
Gabriel and sister-line Zuzu Luxe have some fantastic products with very neat, ‘conventional-like’ packaging. I have heard wonderful things about the Zuzu Luxe liquid liner and brow pencil, as well as the Gabriel liquid foundation and pressed powder
Unfortunately this brand does not ship directly to countries outside USA, but there are other places to get them from online. But seriously, if you’re all about cute packaging and unique products, this is the brand for you!
Lavera appear to have been the front-runner for Natural cosmetics for a long time now.
I must admit I haven’t yet tried any products from Afterglow Cosmetics, but they are definitely worth a look-in as the range is quite extensive and reasonably-priced
Ecco Bella have a great range of products, many of which are pressed, making it handy to place in a Z-Palette if you own one.
I have been curious about this makeup line for the longest time, and on many occasions have been so close to buying a whole heap of products! The range is impressive, with both creme, pressed and powder products.
Just some all-round dependable powder products, with the range constantly developing
Creme-based products with some favourable reviews
Not a lot of fuss has been made about this brand, but I’ve tried some of their products and they are quite impressive! Not to mention the range of products is expanding
Green People don’t have a massive range, but their products look professional and innovative
Juice Beauty have a lot of products that are well-renowned in the green beauty world, such as their Stem Cellular CC cream
Colour-range is impressive- over 60 shades of foundation!
Une products are only available online through lovelula.com and naturisimo.com, however the look of the products make me think it is worth the trouble! I love how the products list the percentage of natural ingredients used in them (which is usually always above 98%)
Small but lovely range of products with nourishing ingredients. Their eyeshadow palettes look enticing
A European makeup brand that sell a lot of great products!
Au-Naturale is a fresh-looking makeup brand that has a great variety of both powder and creme products. On the higher end of mid-range, as some of the products are a tad pricey.
Pure + Simple have some great-looking products, including BB creams which I would love to try out!
Pure Anada have a fabulous range of pressed and loose products. Their mascara has also received great reviews from many natural bloggers
Alva have some really interesting and innovative products. I am a fan of their liquid eye-shadows and would love to try their new BB cream
Suncoat has a small but fascinating variety of products including pressed blushes and eyeshadow duos
A rather small but dependable range of makeup products from Aubrey Organics
Mineral Fusion have a wide range of products, the only catch being that many contain the preservative phenoxyethanol. If you don’t have a problem with this, however, you should love these products!
Cute, natural cosmetics, mostly in loose powder form. Lipstick is also on the menu!
Small selection of trust-worthy makeup products- ‘the look you want, the ingredients you trust’
Pretty freakin’ expensive, but Kjaer Weis have such elegant, chic packaging and rave reviews of their products that they’re definitely one worth checking out!
Zuii Organic is an Australian company relatively new to the scene, and is expanding their line with new and exciting products!
Christopher Drummond is one brand I am dying to try! Products to keep an eye out for are the Duo-Phase Concealer and Saude Pele Radiance Booster. The company also offers Sample Kits which are less expensive and worth purchasing if you just want to dip your feet in!
RMS Beauty is fast-becoming a revolutionary makeup brand in the way of natural cosmetics, with versatility being a key feature of the products. The Living lUminizer is a definite stand-out, as well as the Lip2Cheek products…actually, scrap that, everything from RMS is worth trying!
Another leader in Natural cosmetics, Jane Iredale has a fantastic range of products for all ages and skin-tones
Vapour Organic Beauty are a very well-renowned, award-winning green makeup brand that have some awesome products for face, eyes and lips. Their multi-use blushes are a clear winner for me
W3ll People are another brand that have recieved glorious accolades in the green beauty world. Their products just seem to be consistently amazing
Me want to try liquid foundation! As well as everything else from this awesome little brand…
Sort of on the cheaper side of high-end. Dr Hauschka are absolute guns when it comes to natural makeup, and personally I can vouch for a lot of their products including their translucent makeup, mascara and pressed eyeshadow palette
What can I say? Their stuff just looks so.freaking.cool!
This is the Australian Website for Couleur Caramel, but the brand can be found in many places. Unique products with neat packaging. I have heard good things about the mascara in particular.
Nvey Eco is an Australian brand that has spread its branches across the globe. I have the cake eyeliner and one of their eyeshadow palettes, which I use a lot.
Another Australian brand that has received a lot of love from natural makeup enthusiasts!
Ere perez have some really great products. I LOVE their natural waterproof mascara, and am dying to get my hands on their natural cheek tints next. I love how the range is constantly developing
So many of these products are ones I’ve been wanting to try for the longest time! While the range isn’t massive, I really love how innovative they are with their products
An Australian natural makeup brand with some very chic-looking products. This particular brand seems to be fairly underground amongst natural makeup bloggers, and I’d love for someone (or even me, perhaps) to test out some of the range!
Cute packaging, stellar ingredients and a great variety of products!
Organic Glam have a very sleek, up-market feel to them. I think their concealer palette would be great for natural makeup artists
Wow! This ended up being quite a list! I hope this isn’t information overload for natural makeup beginners, but at least it can give you a few options when it comes to replacing your products. The crazy thing is, this isn’t even all the natural brands I know of, but I selected the ones that I felt had the best range of products with safe, trust-worthy ingredients to save people the hassle of having to do it themselves.
