2016 was a banner year for natural and organic beauty. With so many amazing brands and products to choose from, we naturally-minded organic beauties are no longer limited to choosing from insanely overpriced celebrity brands or crafted in someone’s basement hippie brands (not that we’re not obsessed with many of those). Now we don’t have to sacrifice selection, effectiveness or budget to stock up our bathrooms and makeup bags with beautiful products that work wonders on our skin, hair and bodies, without harming your health or the environment.
As you can tell by the name of this blog, I’m pretty obsessed with all things organic beauty. “Natural” and “organic” used to be synonymous with “ineffective” when it came to many makeup and beauty products back in the day.. not so anymore. There are SO many amazing natural beauty products out there that not only work, but work wonders on your skin!
I believe anything we put on our skin should not only make it look better, but also make it healthier, so I get really pumped about natural makeup that promises and delivers just that. L’eclisse creates super high quality cosmetics using the finest minerals that are actually healthy for your skin. Free of synthetic perfumes, dyes, fillers, or chemicals, the ingredients in their makeup work to soothe sensitive skin, heal and protect from environmental irritants, and hydrate without clogging pores.

As the weather cools and our summer tans inevitably fade, it’s time to step things up a bit when it comes to makeup. But wearing a bit more does NOT mean slathering our skin with toxic and pore-clogging chemicals.
I’ve made it my mission to find the most effective natural makeup out there, and I’m super excited to share my favorites with you guys! These natural beauties boast some awesome ingredients, without the dangerous chemicals you’ll find in most drugstore brands…and without ever sacrificing results!
All of the selections below are formulated without:
- mineral oils
- sodium lauryl sulfates
It’s important to note that not all products from the suggested natural makeup lines below are created equal. Just because they make a good lipgloss, doesn’t mean that their mascara is chemical-free. As always, make sure to read your ingredients, with a particularly keen eye towards the big bad additives listed above. If you’re ever in doubt, enter the product into the EWG Skin Deep Database to see it’s safety score. All of the products listed below rate under 2 on a 10 point scale (0 being the safest).
