You should create the ultimate all-natural makeup kit. All-natural makeup has come a long way over the past five years. Once it was next to impossible (if not outright impossible) to find natural makeup with vibrant colors, a wide array of skin-tone shades, and durable staying power, natural cosmetics today burst with exciting new brands that have made traditional beauty seem all the easier to come by.
Before deciding whether to look for all-natural cosmetics or just a few with the least amount of chemical additives, let’s take a look at what is necessary to have a natural look. Many makeup brands will tell you that their products are all-natural, but this is only true if they aren’t filled with mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, or a similar filler type. You can get great-looking results by simply avoiding the fillers instead of using a product that uses plant-based oils such as grape seed, olive oil, macadamia oil, Shea butter, or avocado oil.
Eyeliner, lip gloss, eye shadow, blusher, mascara, blush, eye shadow, and blush don’t have to be all-natural if you choose to. In fact, some companies will tell you that they use natural ingredients that will give you results that are comparable to the other products. However, if you want a natural look but want it to last and stay in place, look for natural lipstick products such as mineral foundation, pressed powder, mousse, or gel foundation.
Even if your makeover does not include any all-natural products, it is important to keep your skin clean and free from dust. To ensure that you do not have any unwanted allergens on your skin, use a gentle moisturizer before applying makeup to avoid clogging your pores. You can also gently exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells and prevent acne breakouts, and you can use a mild toner or a body scrub to gently remove all traces of makeup from your skin.
Makeup should be applied with a sponge to ensure that it doesn’t end up on your skin and then removed with a towel. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid makeup containing chemicals, fragrances, dyes, preservatives, or fragrances because these types of ingredients can cause irritation or allergic reactions.
The final step to a natural makeover is to make sure that you drink plenty of water. This helps to flush out the toxins from your body and remove impurities that have accumulated in your system.
