In honor of the 42nd annual Earth Day this Sunday, I’m updating my makeup collection to include more earth friendly, natural products. Luckily, there are plenty of green options out there that still manage to satisfy my inner glam girl’s demands. Click through to learn about the three essentials I’m using to get a foolproof weekend look!
- Alima Pure™ Eyeshadow. These loose mineral pigments don’t contain a single iffy ingredient, and you can apply them with a shadow brush or (if you’re lazy like me) with your fingertips. My favorite shade is Paris, a shimmery brown that makes for a daytime-appropriate smoky-eyed look that’s perfect for a Soho shopping expedition. Plus, I love how these shadows come in cute little jars stamped with bird silhouettes.
- Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer. I’m a late sleeper on the weekends, so I’m always on the lookout for products that will help me get to brunch with my girlfriends on time. This brand new mineral tint, which is made with titanium and zinc dioxide, boasts the brag-worthy ability to prime, moisturize, perfect, and protect skin with SPF 20 all in one step. Now I won’t have to worry about sunburn while I’m sitting outside sipping mimosas.
- Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tint. Part balm and part gloss, this tinted lip treatment will change your life. Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but it really is one of the best discoveries I’ve made since I starting working at Birchbox (and trust me, I’m a lip product junkie). My go-to shade is Rachel Red, a juicy strawberry. You can wear it alone for sheer, buildable color or layer it over a lipstick. Oh, and did I mention it’s full of natural ingredients like shea butter and jojoba?
