When it comes to non-toxic make-up my sister, Madison, is quite the guru. She has tried it all and then some and she has become my non-toxic make-up guide in life. She came over and brought all of her favorite products so that we could compile ours together and share some products with you that we’ve tried and that we love!
This is just some of the basics… foundation, eyeliner, mascara, concealer, etc. We didn’t go too far in depth into eye shadows and lipsticks and some other more glamorous products because… well, that’s a whole other ball game. We tried to keep it with some of the basic essentials that we really really love to get you started on non-toxic makeup 101.
Here is my thing with the whole non-toxic makeup trend. I am totally buying into it and I do want to put clean products on my face. To be honest, since I have started making the switch, I am noticed that my skin is more vibrant and healthy. But I am going to shoot you guys straight right here: It’s hard for me to say goodbye to other toxic beauty products that are just way better than the non-toxic stuff. So these products here, they are as good as the toxic stuff in my opinion.
And yes, for you super knowledgable non-toxic beauty people.. I realize that a few of these products are not 100% clean (like the honest company + Beauty Counter products, specifically); however, these products are so much cleaner than what we have all been using in the past and I love and respect these companies for all that they are doing in the beauty industry. Transitioning over to non-toxic beauty and learning everything there is to know about what is and what isn’t perfectly pure for your body is a lot, not to mention, learning which products work on my super sensitive skin is a whole other battle. There is so much to learn and you can only try so many products at once, am I right? So as I continue to try and learn about new products I promise each of you to be honest and share with you the products that I love. And I hope you can appreciate that from me 🙂
Also, are you wondering if the products you are currently using are toxic and if so, how toxic are they exactly? Try downloading the ThinkDirty App. I absolutely love it! I just plug in whatever product I want to read into and it will give you a rating, 1 being super non-toxic, and 10 being toxic AF.
As I said before, today I am narrowing it down to some of the make-up basics… but in the near future I will be sharing skincare, deodorants, haircare, and more! So stay tuned.
Crunchi Beautifully Flawless Foundation and Primer — Madison – “I’ve never really known what all the fuss is with primers but this one is totally worth it. Honestly, I love all things Crunchi brand! Start with a dime size of this primer all over face then use the Crunchi Foundation brush (link below) with a pump of the flawless foundation and your skin will be looking FLAWLESS! Definitely the best clean foundation out there.”
Crunchi Flawless Foundation Flat Top Brush – Madison “you can’t have the foundation without this brush. Yes, it truly makes a difference with how your foundation applies. Try applying with circular motions on face for the best smooth finish. ”
Honest Company Contour + Highlight Kit – Madison and I both use this one, not daily, but it is great for a night out!
Honest Luminizing Powder — aka BRONZER.
Hynt Beauty Duet Perfecting Concealer – the best green beauty concealer out there! First, I apply my daily SPF moisturizer to face (linked below) then I apply this concealer directly on blemishes and dark spots.Then, I apply my foundation. Remember, a tiny bit of this concealer goes a long way!
Lily Lolo Black Vegan Mascara – If someone were to ask me which beauty product I couldn’t live without, it’s mascara. I am about as picky as it gets when it comes to good mascara and this lily lolo is really good. I’ve tried so many and hated them all until this one!
Beautycounter Color Define Brow Pencil– Use for filling in those gaps and get those BROWS ON FLEEK!
Honest Company Eyeliner Pencil– This is my favorite eyeliner because I love using a smudge tip for a smoky look. Truly Cocoa is my favorite color.
Beautycounter Color Sweep Blush – I love this blush! It adds the perfect amount of color for naturally sun kissed looking cheeks.
Antonym Brushes– cruelty free, certified vegan (meaning no animal products or testing on animals). The bristles are seriously so soft so if you’re needing new brushes then I definitely recommend this brand! Pictured is the Powder brush #1, blush brush #2 and contour brush #3.
100 Percent Pure Fruit Pigmented Foundation Powder– super lightweight powder with super clean ingredients! I’m shade Peach Bisque.
w3ll people concealor – I use the ‘fair’ tint since I’m using it for under eye brightening! I apply a few dots under each eye and blend with a blender brush.
W3ll People Bronzer Stick -get for highlighting and getting that dewy look. Use on the bridge of nose, cheek bones and forehead. You can use the Crunchi foundation flat top brush to smooth out harsh lines after application.
Kypris Pot of Shade: Heliotrophic – SPF30 Sunscreen & Primer that sits fabulously under makeup or just worn alone!
Buca Botanicals Camellia & Rose Face Serum- my favorite product like…ever! before I do anything, right after I wash my face in the morning I use this as a moisturizer for the day. It gives your skin beautiful, dewy face fresh glow throughout the day! AND use my discount code “thedefineddish” at checkout for 15% off your purchase at Buca Botanicals!
