Whether you’re hitting up Saint Barths or the Upper West Side, a perfectly painted face is the best accessory. Luckily there are many eco-friendly makeup lines out there to assure that you look your finest without all the toxic chemicals that are harmful for both your body and the planet. We have dug through the masses and done our research to present to you this weeks Top Five orGLAMic Picks.
Jane Iredale has created a unique line of mineral-based makeup that is never tested on animals and contains no talc, phthalates or parabens. In fact, the makeup is so pure that it is recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists worldwide. I use the tinted moisturizer every day and love that it contains natural sunscreen, but the entire colorful orGLAMic line is worth checking out.
Urban Decay first became a favorite of mine as a rebellious teenager (black nail polish and all!) but the unique company still offers products that grab my adult attention. The Sustainable Shadow Box pictured above comes with 10 eye shadows, Eye shadow Primer Potion, and a cruelty-free brush and the box itself is made of bamboo and recycled paper. I love the range of colors this package contains and the fact that it easily transitions with me from orGLAMic day to orGLAMic night.
Supermodel Josie Maran continues to wow consumers with her all-natural namesake cosmetic line. In addition to having an outstanding range of products, the items are organic and free from parabens, phthalates, and most petrochemicals. If all I need to look like this beautiful eco-maven is a swipe of her makeup then sign me up STAT!
Most people have learned by now that primer is a key component to a flawless face. Luckily for us, Korres offers a silicone-free, 99% natural face primer that visibly reduces pores and fills in lines and wrinkles. This formula is free of petrochemicals, mineral oil, parabens, sulfates, phthalates and synthetic dyes or fragrances. You’ll be camera-ready with this orGLAMic primer in no time.
CARGO has created an eco-friendly line of lipsticks called PlanetLove. These additions to a colorful pucker are 100% natural, contain organic ingredients, and are free of parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, and synthetic dyes and fragrances. And while the playful packaging is an ode nature, it is also made out of corn and completely compostable.
