Most of us have experimented with make-up at some point in our lives, and some of us choose to wear it more often than others.
The real beauty of make-up is that you can choose a look that suits your style, whether it is a natural look or a complete vamp, the key is finding what works for you.
Whatever you prefer, the hardest part is selecting the right products. This is not only about picking the right colours and tones for you, but also the ones that are best for your skin.
More and more people are opting for natural products that not only look great but have a whole host of other benefits too. These products are often vegan and organic, and have ingredients that come from the natural world, making sure the products steer away from the more common synthetic ingredients that we are used to seeing.
So, what natural make-up should you be adding to your bathroom shelves?
When we wear make-up we cover our skin, and if not removed properly, it can block pores.
This leads to breakouts and spots, which goes on to make us feel the need to wear even more of it to hide them!
You can find out more in our article asking: ‘What does makeup do to your pores?’.
It is for these reasons that an increasing number of people are now turning to natural cosmetics as an alternative that is not only better for their skin, but better for the planet too. Many of these contain specialist minerals, such as the Beautiful Me Mineral Foundation.
Most natural makeup not only are gentle on skin, but they also have ingredients that are actively good for your skin.
Reading the list of ingredients will reveal a range of vitamins, aloe vera and oils such as coconut, sunflower and argan which all help to nourish and moisturise the skin.
The basis of any natural make-up look should be a good foundation. This helps to even out your skin tone as well as hiding any blemishes.
Natural foundations come in cream and powder formulations so there is something to suit every skin tone and age.
A natural blusher or bronzer is also a great addition to any make-up bag as it can add a beautiful glow to your face. The Lily Lolo Pressed Blush has a silky, creamy texture that is vegan friendly and highly pigmented.
Natural eyeshadows offer a stunning range of colours that are perfect for any occasion. Whether you want a simple, every day look, or something more glamourous, natural beauty brands still deliver.
Lily Lolo have some stunning pressed eye shadows, like this one in the Silver Lining shade is perfect to take you from a daytime look through to the evening. It is easily blendable, making it perfect for the budding make-up artist, and offers great long-lasting wear.
There are even natural mascara’s now available, including the PHB Ethical Beauty All in One Natural Mascara. This takes into account that eyes can be sensitive too and has been developed with that in mind. It has a gentle, water-resistant formula that has been hand made with botanical oils to lengthen, thicken and volumise lashes all day long.
Do not fall into the trap of thinking that just because make-up is natural that it is going to be ordinary!
