I’m particularly fond of their blush and concealer. The blush comes in 7 great colors and goes on sooo nicely! I love the compact size of the blush, making it easy to apply and easy to tote around.

The concealers come in duos of two shades, which is optimal for customization and usage throughout the entire year! Also, it makes it possible to use the same product for both the under eye area and the face.

All mineral fusion products are noncomedogenic and provide moisture balancing benefits, allowing the skin to function normally. mineral fusion is also a great choice for women with skin conditions like acne, rosacea and hyper-pigmentation because the makeup actually provides healing and calming benefits!

NVEY ECO Organic Moisturizing Mascara

To be honest, next to deodorant, mascara has been one of my last products “to go natural.” The first natural mascara I recently tried is made by NVEY ECO, a certified-organic makeup line with their Global Headquarters in Australia. This organic mascara is formulated with strengthening and conditioning ingredients like Vitamin B5, nettle, and horsetail. This mascara goes on easily and smoothly. It also stays on very well.

One of the reasons I was deciding to make the switch was because I was hoping that natural mascara would wash off really, really easily. I love wearing eye makeup, especially mascara, but I don’t like to use any kind of makeup remover (even natural kinds) because I feel like it’s stripping that delicate area around my eyes of crucial moisture (and I definitely don’t want to do that!) So I was expecting Nvey to come off extremely easily, but it takes the same amount of effort to get this natural version off as it does to take off any of the popular, not-so-natural brands. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I was just surprised how well it stayed on. It’s impressive how intense natural pigments can be!

I’m curious if there is a natural mascara out there that doesn’t smudge easily, but is super easy to take off. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

A Natural Blush

Aubrey Organics Powder Blushes feature silk powder, which is antimicrobial, absorbs oil, and is high in amino acids. I love these blushes because they are so soft, long-lasting, and look really natural. The coloring is from beets and radishes – you can’t get more natural than that! The packaging is really great too and makes for easier application.

Natural Lip Color

Aubrey Organics Natural Lip Sheer Tints are a great natural choice for lip color. Organic coconut oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil keep lips shiny and smooth. Meanwhile, organic food-based flavors like organic peppermint and strawberry oils keep lips naturally fresh and sweet. The coloring in the tints come from sustainable sources, including beet powder, caramel, and radish.  These natural tints are available in eight shades and they retail for only about $7.50!
