If you are like me and you like to change up your makeup for summertime, check out my top 5 organic, natural, and eco-friendly makeup brands that offer lightweight, colorful, and fun products for summer!
Pacifica is a wonderful, budget-friendly brand. They offer quite a range in skin care as well as makeup items. Their primers, skincare, and lotions are by far some of their best-sellers. But I happen to like their eyeshadow palettes because they have neutral colors as well as colorful, smoky palettes. Most products range from $10-$20, making these makeup items easily affordable and accessible.
Real Purity is perfect for those that are new to vegan, cruelty-free makeup because they are best known for being able to select sample colors to choose from, which makes it easy for you to pick the right color for you and your skin tone. You can easily get samples without having to commit right away to the investment of a whole bottle or tube of product. What I like best about this company is that their products are made from all-natural botanical and plant-derived ingredients. Plus, they affordably range from $10-$30 per product.
Juice Beauty is a natural and organic makeup company best known for moisturizers and anti-wrinkle treatments and serums. But this company takes eco-friendly to the next level by being USDA certified Organic, using local sources for its ingredients, and using solar and wind power in the manufacturing as well as using recycled packaging. Not only are they vegan and cruelty-free, they also give back to charities. They are priced from $20-$40.
Afterglow is a great brand for those with sensitive skin because their organic, natural ingredients blend minerals and natural pigments to carefully formulate their makeup to be soy-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free, vegan and fair trade. They are known for the colorful pigments which are exemplified best by their color range in blushes and lipsticks. What’s also unique about this brand is that their products can be refilled (non-waste packaging) and their packaging is made from recycled materials. Most products range from $20-$40.
Alima Pure is highly regarded for its inclusiveness for having their signature powder foundation for all skin tones. They have an amazing wide range of diverse colors to choose from, so if you have a skin tone that is harder to find in most makeup brands, make sure to give this brand a try. Their signature powder foundation is equivalent to brand name mineral foundations, but their high-quality, pure ingredients never include synthetic dyes to achieve its color. Not only does this company dedicate itself to uncompromising natural and organic beauty, they are also eco-friendly. They use soy-inks on recycled paper for packaging, they are carbon-neutral, and their compacts are refillable. Pricing for their foundation is $28, with eyeshadow pigments costing $14 per color.
