You may not know this about me but I am actually quite the clean makeup-enthusiast! In today’s blog I’m going to share my top 10 favorite clean makeup products with you. These are products I have spent time researching, and after using them for some time now, know they are safe, clean, and work! I truly believe what we put ON our bodies is just as important as what is going IN our bodies.
For my everyday, go-to-look, I use these top four products pictured below. I have sensitive/dry-eczema-prone skin and I need products that are not going to irritate my skin more than it already is. When I am applying my makeup, I first start out with PRIMER. I’ve used the Revlon Prime Plus primer for over a year now, and I actually just ran out! It’s light, moisturizing, and does not make my skin feel greasy or oily. Occasionally, I use this on it’s own when I’m not feeling foundation that day. This product is EWG VERIFIED™ by the Environmental Working Group.
Next up is my Rejuva Minerals liquid FOUNDATION – my all time fave! Depending on what month it is, I use the shades: “In the Buff” & “Sand Beach.” I use a damp makeup sponge to apply it all over my face, neck, and ears. It’s definitely more of a light/medium coverage.. but if I’m looking for more of a full coverage that day, I’ll go over with a second coat. Highly recommend! This product is EWG VERIFIED™ by the Environmental Working Group.
After foundation, I’ll apply CONCEALER. Currently I’m using the 16HR Camo Concealer by e.l.f. Cosmetics. It’s full coverage and lasts all day! I’m still in the process of finding other options, but this concealer has a EWG score of 2 – meaning, it’s still in the green zone!
After concealer, I’ll set my foundation with my favorite SETTING POWDER by W3LL PEOPLE. I’ve tried other setting powders, but they were basically straight up corn starch and did not do well. But this one does the job! This product is EWG VERIFIED™ by the Environmental Working Group.
On days I’m feeling a more full-faced makeup look, I grab my everyday EYE SHADOW palette by Honest Beauty! This small but mighty palette has 10 shades, which is all I need! It has the perfect colors for all seasons, and it’s also great to travel with because of its compact size. At first it was a bit difficult to blend these shades out, but after testing a few different brushes, blending has become achievable. This product has a EWG score of 1, making it very close to being verified.
Continuing with my full-face makeup days, I grab these two products below from Rejuva Minerals for BRONZER and BLUSH! For bronzer, I use the shade “Bahama Mama” from their pressed powder collection. For blush I use the shade “Pink Parfait” or “Acai Berry” from their selection of multi purpose powders for blush and eye. I use a warmer shade in the summer months, and a cooler shade in winter.
For LIPSTICK, I like to use their Pur’ Lips Vegan and Organic Lipstick in “Peach Bellini.” My all time favorite lip products include Revlon’s Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in “Seduction” (score: 5) & the Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Mink” (score: 3). I’m still trying to find dupes for these. All Rejuva Minerals products mentioned are EWG VERIFIED™ by the Environmental Working Group.
Before setting my face, I apply my favorite MASCARA from Rejuva Minerals on natural days, and my Milk Kush mascara for more dramatic makeup looks (see first photo).The Rejuva mascara is EWG VERIFIED™; the Milk mascara has a score of 2.
Lastly, I set my face with NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Face SETTING SPRAY in dewy finish. This product has a EWG score of 2.
