March brings with it sunlight from daylight savings time, my birthday, and St. Patrick’s Day. And while I love me some beer, the green I really like to see on March 17th is the grass peeking through the snow. Spring is so close I can taste it! And while some people love Fall for a reset, I prefer the promise of spring cleaning.
But don’t stop with your house! In the spirit of fresh starts and everything green, shake up your makeup routine with some green choices. Here are five “green” makeup brands that will give your face a refresh.
Burt’s Bees: There was a lot of outcry when this natural line was bought. But I love that it has allowed them to expand their brand into a few choice makeup options. Lip color is especially important to keep natural considering how much of it you end up ingesting (sad truth.) With the Burt’s lip color line you will look good and feel good. They’ve replaced synthetic ingredients with natural alternatives that you wouldn’t be scared to eat.
Korres: Makeup is one of those things that we wear to improve the look of our skin. So why not make it as gentle on our skin as possible? That’s why my splurge items are from the Korres line. For longer than you’re been alive, this makeup line has been producing their products with ingredients that are gentle on your skin and the environment. Their primer and foundation perfects your skin without damaging it and is safe for sensitive skin like mine.
Eco Bella: Ready to make the full time jump into eco-makeup? Then head to the Eco Bella website and immerse yourself in this line where every product is cruelty free and green certified. From skin care to mascara, you can use the products with confidence that you are putting only the most natural products on your skin! Plus every product is infused with vitamins that actually work to improve your skin so you can wear less product. It’s a win/win.
Flower Beauty: It’s true that green products often come with an increased price tag due to their ingredients. But Drew Barrymore (yes that Drew) has brought natural products to the masses with her Flower Beauty line sold exclusively at Walmart. Though they don’t have the same level of natural ingredients as some of the other lines I love, they definitely win on price and availability. All products are cruelty free and get their pigments from botanicals whenever possible.
