7 of the Best Organic Cosmetics
The best make-up advice I have ever gotten was, if it is something you will use all the time, even if it is more expensive, get it. It's better to have one thing you love and use all the time, then have a bunch of so-so products. Make the splurge, and get the makeup that you want.
If you are willing to spend an extra dollar or two on organic food, shouldn't you do the same thing for your cosmetics? You aren't willing to eat pesticides, so don't put it on your face.
1. Ecco Bela Organic Tinted Vitamin E Smoother
This hybrid part-lipstick part-lip-balm is absolutely wonderful. If you love the coloring of lipstick, but don't like how it looks thick, cracked, and dry, then this is for you. It goes on smooth, and it nourishes lips with Vitamin E. You can wear it alone, or you might want to wear this yummy tinted smoother under your lipstick; it will help the lipstick stay on put all day, and it keeps your lips moisturized. This smoother is vegan, gluten-free, and organic.
2. Vapor Organic Beauty "Mesmerize"
Vapor Organic Beauty "Mesmerize" is absolutely the best smudge free eyeliner. Is your current eyeliner organic and made out of chamomile flowers? This eyeliner is most definitely worth the extra few bucks so you can have this eyeliner which is worthy of your beautiful eyes. It goes on easy, glides across the eye lids, which won't tug or pull your peepers.
3. Physicians Formula Organic Double Curl
If you want jaw-dropping eyelashes without having to compromise between quality organic ingredients or quality and style, try Physicians Formula Organic Double Curl. It will both thicken and extend your eyelashes, and won't smudge if you accidentally rub your eyes.
4. Vapor's Aura Multi-Use Organic Blush
Are you blushing, or is that Vapor's Organic Blush? The boys will never know, they will just know that you have a healthy glow, and just look radiant. On top of that, this blush can be used for many different uses. You can use it as blush, eye shadow and you can use it on top of your lip balm. This makes the relatively high price of the blush worth
The ingredients of Vapor's Aura Multi-Use Organic Blush include lotus flowers, frankincense (Yes, the same think one of the wise men brought baby Jesus), 30% mineral pigments, and Tulsi (a natural, and organic flower which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties).
There are three main reasons why I love Vapor's Aura Multi-Use Organic Blush. First, I love that it is organic, all-natural, and contains many flowers which work as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. Second, I love how I can use it for more than one use. I think I use more of this product as an eyeshadow than I do as a blush. Last, I love how easy it is to apply on my face, and how easy it glides on. If I am in a hurry, I grab one of my foundation sticks, and this as the coloring needed for eyes, cheeks, and lips. I really do not have an excuse not to do mu makeup, because Vapor makes it so simple.
I learned a trick a few years ago on how to pick the perfect blush. Look at the inside of your mouth, and see what the color of your inner cheek is. This color will make your blush look more natural, because this color is the exact same as when you naturally blush.
5. Dermablend Quick-Fix
I have scars on my face from a blast in Iraq. This covers them so well, no one can tell. I had a doctor who told me about this coverup. The use it to cover tattoos for television, and grossly, on bodies after accidents. This stuff really works, and it's organic. It may be on the costly side, but a little goes on a long way. I use it as my foundation, but you can use it as a concealer, and that way it will last even longer.
6. Eco-Bella FlowerColor Natural Foundation
This creamy formula hides lines spectacularly, and doesn't create that caked on look. It has an SPF of 15. While this product may cost a few extra dollars than you would normally spend at a grocery store, it is still a steal considering the coverage and the quality organic compound. There is a website below with the link to get your own.
7. Physician's Formula Organic CC Cream
This is a relatively new product, and you can buy it at your local drug store. It provides coverage, while treating your skin. This product carries an SPF 20, and is all natural and organic. There are no harsh additives, but instead contains eco-soy and eco-olive oil. This CC cream provides instant coverage, hydrates the skin, and naturally protects your skin.
