5 Amazing Organic Makeup Brands – Coming Right Up!
In this day and age, we’re all super conscious of what we put in our bodies – and what goes on them, as well! Lisa has tried a few organic beauty products in the past and we’ll eventually write about the ones she likes! As such, there’s a huge push for discovering non-toxic makeup brands that are chemical free and pure of harmful chemicals.
But where do you even start looking? Often times, it’s as easy as searching online for certified organic makeup brands! Big stores like Sephora often carry organic lines but they can be marked up and expensive.
So, we wanted to bring you a list of the smaller, lesser-known organic beauty brands. From foundation to lipstick, these smaller brands bring you organic products that are great for you and the environment – and are sure to look amazing on you, too!
Things to Consider When Choosing New Organic Makeup Brands
Buying new makeup is always a challenge – so here are a few things to remember if you’re making the switch to organic or just trying a new brand on for size!
Organic and All-Natural. It’s important to remember that just because a product has “organic” on the label, that doesn’t mean that it’s all-natural. A product just has to contain organic ingredients to be called organic. They can still have harmful chemicals in them!
So when trying out a new makeup brand, do your homework! If you are serious about taking care of your skin, body, and environment, strive for products that are organic AND “all-natural”.
We’re not going to be snobs here and say that “only organic” makeup isn’t good enough – because any form of brand consciousness is a great place to start. We just want you to know that products can be misleading with their labels so you can make informed choices!
Reviews. Reviews are a big deal in beauty. You can tell pretty quickly if a product does what it’s supposed to do just by reading the consumer reviews. Real women trying something out is a great resource. That said, you do have to take reviews with a grain of salt! Between the differences in ingredients and the tone of your skin, not all products are going to be a one-size-fits-all for everyone. That’s kind of obvious – but it’s nice to restate from time to time.
Your Own Skin History. Along the lines of reading reviews – know your skin. Remember – you are the one who best knows your body. Even though brands are free of harmful chemicals, doesn’t mean that your skin won’t react to something else in the makeup.
When buying a new product, read the ingredients and try to determine if anything has triggered a bad reaction in the past. Ultimately, you don’t know until you test a product and there are safe ways to do so if you’re worried about a new makeup not agreeing with your body!
Price/Quality. When it comes to organic makeup, prices are going to fluctuate. Some things just are more expensive because they are genuinely harder to produce but are still amazing products.
That said, when you’re shopping, watch for imitations or knock-off products. Watch for companies charging a premium price for the same product as a competitor. Just cause it says “certified organic” or “all-natural” doesn’t mean it always has to hurt your wallet, too!
Now that we’re all thinking about buying makeup, let’s browse some of these awesome organic makeup brands out there doing their thing!
