Natural Makeup Favourites / may

Your skin is your largest organ, which is reason enough to be conscious of the products you put on it! Your skin will soak up pretty much everything you put on it, which is why I try and use natural makeup products in my everyday routine! I've put together a list of my 5 current favourite NATURAL makeup products; including foundation, bronzer, highlighter, lipstick and mascara. TIP: Click the photos or product names for more details and to buy the products!

My first favourite is ILIA Beauty's 'Vivid Foundation'. I love this foundation as it's super light & hydrating (yet still has great coverage), and blends seamlessly into your skin, making it look very natural. I love ILIA Beauty products as they contain certified organic bio-active botanicals that nourish and rejuvenate the skin. This foundation in particular contains coconut, rose hip and cranberry seed oils. 


Next is another ILIA Beauty product! This is their 'Sway Illuminator' which is essentially a glow stick. I use this on my cheeks and cheekbones, and also my eyelids to add a subtle bronze glow. I love how natural it looks on the skin - giving you a sun kissed glow. Again, this product contains organic ingredients, including rose hip oil, and natural dye! 


This JOSIE MARAN 'Argan Enlightenment Illuminiser' creates the perfect subtle highlight, brightening and hydrating the skin. I use this on my cheekbones and mix it in with my ILIA foundation for an extra dewy look. This product brings a natural looking radiance to the skin, containing organic and natural products - including argan oil which is very hydrating, containing vitamin e and fatty acids, which absorbs seamlessly into the skin. 


This 'Sheer Lipstick' by LUMA COSMETICS is a long time favourite of mine, as it's super conditioning and nourishing for the lips. It contains  Lanolin, Avocado, Jojoba and Evening Primrose Oils which gives it hydrating properties. It's Formulated without Parabens, Synthetic Fragrances and Artificial Oils, and an added bonus is that they don't test on animals (YAY!). Each lipstick gives a sheer stain, and goes on creamy and glossy, without the stickiness of a lip gloss! 


My last current favourite is another JOSIE MARAN product! It's their 'Argan Black Oil Mascara' which is something everyone should be putting on their lashes! Because your eyelashes are so fragile (and so close to your eyes), you don't want to be putting anything too harsh on them. That's why this mascara is perfect, containing properties of bamboo and Argan Oil which work together to strengthen and nourish your lashes! Not only is this mascara great for the health of your lashes, but it adds length and volume using the brush, and makes your eyes pop with their black iron mineral pigment. Yet again, this product contains both natural and organic ingredients!
