I’ve decided to go even deeper into natural and organic makeup, and I have to say, my skin is thanking me for it. The ingredients in many of the products I use are actually better for your skin than going without–because of the purity, sun protection, and healthy ingredients.
I’m a prepper. Love this CC stick by Tarte. It’s on sale on Tarte’s website for $30. I use DEEP. It really helps even my skin and prepare it for more makeup, and the clay keeps my oily T-Zone at bay.
I’m contouring with Au Natural in GOA…their darkest shade. It was a little too dark for all over, but PERFECT for contours. It’s $32, but if you sign up for the company mailing list, you’ll get 20% off.
Au Natural, GLAM eye palette, $48.
Au Natural lipstick, Marrakesh (has rose and golden undertones), $22. While I love the great ingredients of the lipstick, it does take a bit to get the buildup I want. I think a better bet is the the creme blush in ROSETTE that can be used both as a cheek and lip color.
Best mascaras and eyeliner in the natural realm that I’ve tried are from 100% Pure Minerals.
