When it comes to everyday makeup, wearing clean beauty products made with good-for-you ingredients can actually improve the appearance and health of your skin.
To help you discover incredible natural makeup brands that contain only clean ingredients, in today’s edition of “Fabulous Finds”, learn more about a few of my current everyday essentials.
Everyday Natural Makeup Essentials
Over the past few months, I’ve been doing more research (and rigorous product testing) on clean beauty products, ranging from skincare and hair care products to makeup and even nail polish.
Unlike toxic, chemical-based cosmetics (which can clog pores, accelerate skin aging, and potentially cause breakouts), clean beauty products are designed to harness the power of natural ingredients, like plant-based superfoods and essential oils.
As a person with sensitive skin, I often find that certain beauty products can irritate and aggravate my delicate skin. That means anything from primers and foundations to bronzers and blushes can cause blemishes or make my skin look dry and weathered.
So, I’ve found that it’s imperative for me to only use beauty products that contain beauty-boosting ingredients. As a result, here’s why these clean beauty products are a few of my current faves (which I’m confident – you’ll love too!).
Clean Beauty: Primer + Foundation
One of my favorite clean beauty brands is Purlisse, which was created by Founder Jennifer Yen. Recently, their team introduced me to Yensa, her newest brand, which has quickly become one of my new faves for everyday wear.
While many primers clog my pores (and lead to breakouts), the Yensa Tone Up Primer Essential Glow has actually helped my skin look even better. This moisture-enriched primer evens out skin tone while minimizing the visibility of pores. Plus, it’s a fantastic base for face makeup, ensuring my makeup stays put all day.
Infused with 8 superfoods (like black tea, chia seed, and Korean black raspberry), the high-performing, antioxidant-rich Yensa Skin on Skin BC Foundation provides full coverage performance while imparting a “healthy glow”. The formula glides on easily without looking chalky or mask-like. Plus, the beauty-boosting ingredients improve the health of my skin. Not to mention, it contains SPF 40, so it’s protecting skin from damaging sun rays as well.
Clean Beauty: Blush, Bronzer, & Highlighter
I’ve always been a bareMinerals fan (having started with their popular setting powders), but have recently fallen even more in love with this clean beauty line, the more I wear their products.
Over the past several weeks, I’ve been testing out the bareMinerals Desert Bloom GEN NUDE® Mini Blush Palette, Endless Summer Bronzer, and Endless Glow Highlighter.
The limited-edition blush palette contains 3 stunning, skin-enhancing shades – a coral hue, a soft pink, and deeper mauve shade. Free of any toxic ingredients (like sulfates or parabens), this blush palette is ideal for spring and summer months, as the blushes impart a healthy color to your cheeks. Plus, the buildable, natural-looking color ensures you won’t get unwanted streaks or a “clown-like” finish.
For added warmth (or even to use as a contour shade), the bronzer is a must-have natural makeup essential. The mineral-based, matte bronzer instantly gives skin a sun-kissed effect, without looking ruddy or chalky. This clean, talc-free formula won’t clog pores or “age” your skin. Plus, it contains “mineral blurring microspheres” that help to blur the look of imperfections or pores.
For a dewy, lit-from-within glow, the highlighter is like a magic wand for the skin. Without being too sparkly, this subtly shimmery formula adds the perfect amount of light to the high points of your face. A light dusting of highlighter on the cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow will make you look like you just had a facial.
Clean Beauty: Setting Spray
Last, but certainly not least, is the beauty-boosting bareMinerals Dew Mist Setting Spray. To help makeup stay on longer (especially on hot, humid days), this skin-enhancing setting spray works miracles. Not only does it hydrate skin, but it also locks makeup in place, preventing mid-day meltdowns. Plus, it leaves skin looking naturally radiant, which is always desirable.
Stay tuned, as I’ll be sharing more incredible clean beauty product finds over the next several weeks. For more beauty tips and tricks, check out the Makeup section on Inspirations & Celebrations.
