Detoxing your makeup bag? Check out these organic beauty brands
Jun. 29, 2020
As many of us are becoming more conscious of what we put in our bodies, it makes sense that we should be just as conscious about what we’re putting on them too. The performance of organic makeup used to be poor in comparison to the wider market, but now brands are creating organic products that are just as pigmented, durable, and easy to use.
Organic makeup is made with organically farmed ingredients, grown without the use of GMOs, herbicides and synthetic fertilisers. This means the formulas are cleaner and safer since they’re less likely to irritate your skin.
The following brands and products are proudly organic so you can make a start on (literally) cleaning up your makeup bag.
Perhaps one of the most famous natural and organic brands, RMS Beauty has a full collection makeup products made with natural ingredients. The brand is passionate about clean beauty – all the products are designed to be as pure as possible in order to limit skin’s exposure to toxic ingredients. Where possible they use ingredients that are raw and food-grade so they can better penetrate the skin, and in addition, the ingredients within are chosen to do good and look good, so they actually treat and nourish skin simultaneously.

THIS is why I love BoxyCharm 🙌🏾 These products wouldn’t have been on my radar, but they were delivered right to my door + I absolutely LOVE all of them! And this olive eye!! I’m feelin it! Full tutorial and review are on YouTube now! Link in bio ❤️ Product List: #Violet Voss - Olive You Forever[products]#[FiveStars] This is my first time trying this brand and I'm really impressed! The shadows are creamy, pigmented, and super blendable! FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya I love the cleansing balm so I was excited to try this! It has definitely helped my skin stay hydrated and even makes it look more glowy and matte! I love the texture and it absorbs quickly! #Avant Skincare - Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Micellar Water[products]#[FourStars] This reneges ALL my makeup, even mascara, with no issues! My skin feels smooth and hydrated after using it. However, it has a LOT of fragrance. I don't mind the smell, but it does linger. #Seraphine Botanicals - Apple + Baume Glow Lip Mask[products]#[FiveStars] A great lip mask! Hydrated lips nicely! I like applying this as I start my makeup routine and it's usually absorbed by the time I get to my lips. #Trust Fund Beauty - Lipgasm Lip Gloss[products]#[FourStars] this is a pretty gloss but it is a bit sticky.
