Favorite Non-Toxic Makeup and Beauty Products
My favorite non-toxic makeup and beauty products that are natural and free of toxins, chemicals and fragrance. The best mineral makeup and natural mascara!
If you’re new here and new to toxic free living, start with this post: Why I Made My Home Toxic Free + How I Did It! In that post I share everything you need to know about going toxic free, the resources I learned from, how I budgeted and slowly made the toxic free swaps, and a round up of all my toxic free posts linking to my favorite products (including this one!).
The cosmetic industry is vastly under regulated. There are thousands of chemicals, preservatives and toxins that are in our makeup that are known endocrine disrupters. There hasn’t been any new beauty regulations since 1938.
To be safe, I check all of my beauty products on the EWG database to make sure they are safe to use. I try and make sure the rating is 3 or lower.
I’ve tried MANY makeup products to find what works best for me. I went through a ton that I didn’t like, but after many months I’m so glad I found a great makeup combination that I love, is safe for my health, and makes me feel pretty and feminine.
Watch my Nontoxic Makeup Routine for Daytime
Above is a video I recorded of myself doing my daily, daytime makeup routine showing you all my favorite products in action. I can do my makeup in about 5 minutes! Here is my nightly toxic free oil cleansing nighttime skincare routine I reference at the beginning of the video (The video is in the middle of the post). At the end of the video I reference my Hair Curl Hack Video for how I keep my curls to last for 7 days between washes, be sure to watch that video as well!
Here are my safer beauty products that are in my makeup bag:
I love love love Jane Iredale products! They’re sold at Nordstrom, so you know they’re good.
I start my makeup by putting on this primer. It makes my face smooth and even, and hides my pores. It also hydrates my skin, and smells great! It smells like grapefruit. It goes on smooth, and absorbs quickly.
This mineral based pure pressed base is a foundation, setting powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one! I am obsessed!
Immediately after putting on my primer, I put on this pressed base while the primer is still tacky. By doing so, it makes it kind of like a foundation, and the pressed base really adheres to the primer.
When it dries, it looks so natural and beautiful! Your skin is glowing!
There are SO many colors, so you’re sure to find the exact match you need for your skin tone. My skin tone color is “Natural”.
For the ultimate savings, you can get this bundled Essentials Set that comes with the primer, Handi brush and refillable compact!
I love this mineral blush in the color Barely Rose. It is natural and perfect for my complexion.
I use a basic blush brush I got at Target. Nothing fancy.
I love the triple eyeshadow! It’s the perfect eyeshadow palette with complimentary colors. For daytime, my favorite is Sweet Spot. For date night, I love Sundown.
Again, I use a basic crease eyeshadow brush from Target.
This eyelash primer makes my eyelashes look so much fuller and thicker! I put it on before my mascara. I let it dry for a bit (while I’m doing my eyebrows). Then I put my mascara on top of it. It makes such a difference!
This is the one makeup product from Beautycounter that I actually liked! This brow gel looks so natural, way more natural than a brow pencil or powder. I can put it on super fast too. Plus, I love that the gel holds my brows in place. I’m blonde, and use the shade Light – Neutral Beige.
Sorry for screaming at your eyes, but THIS IS THE BEST MASCARA IN THE WORLD! Even better than the previous toxic one I was using.
Finding a good non-toxic mascara took me the longest. I think I tried 10 different ones (my husband was so scared when he saw my credit card bill that month, ha!). All of them were awful. Gave no definition, would flake or smudge, gave me no length or volume. It was depressing.
I’m not a lipstick girl. Not for me. I prefer a really natural look, and feel like I look too done up when I wear lipstick or lipgloss. I like the natural color of my lips just fine!
I am a HUGE chapstick girl! I was so sad that my favorite chapstick had toxins.
I found this chapstick, and I love it even more! Goes on smooth, keeps my lips hydrated with the most minimal shine, and bonus the flavor is peppermint so it kind of works like a mint! This is always in my pocket.
