Before Switching to all natural, I had given up on the hope to find a perfect foundation that blends with my uneven skin tone, that doesn’t rip off the natural glow of the skin. Fast forward now I am amazed that I found the (almost) perfect foundation, a natural blush, lipstick(s), highlighter, Kohl pencil and mascara that I swear by and are completely free from harmful chemicals!
The most powerful thing my upbringing has taught me is simplicity. I grew up watching my grandma, mom, and aunts unapologetically walk out of the house wearing zero makeup and yet look incredibly beautiful. There was a phase in my life when YouTube makeup videos took over my life. I use to dislike myself for not looking stunning even after wearing makeup. The reason was I was trying to look like someone I wasn’t. Makeup shouldn’t change you, it should enhance your real beauty
Switching to all natural makeup products is honestly the best decision I’ve made for my skin. It’s not only helped me to be aware of what I’m putting on my skin, it also opened the doors to make my own skincare at home. Natural beauty products do more than just cover your imperfections, they make your skin healthy! That’s what I would choose any day!
I am a very minimalistic person when it comes to makeup now. I have a combination skin, oily t-zone, and dry cheeks. I like products that make my skin look fresh, naturally glowing and healthy. Mentioned below are all the products I am currently using, loving and will mostly rebuy.
Wearing all the natural makeup products mentioned below except the lipstick shade, I am wearing Sahara instead of winecup + RMS living luminizer which I reviewed in my Favorite Sephora Green beauty products post
6 Favorite Natural Makeup Products You’ll Love
I am obsessed with this foundation because it’s not cakey and leaves a cute little shine on my skin. The foundation is extremely lightweight, you can build it up to get a little more coverage. It looks almost natural on the skin with no dry patches. My colleagues and friends always compliment how healthy and bright my skin looks whenever I wear it.
Application- very smooth, you can use a beauty blender or apply it with your fingers
Cons- Not very long-lasting even after wearing it over a primer. But for some reason no product is long-lasting on my skin. I have to reapply it after certain hours which I almost forget to do. Also, I feel this product works well better on the dry skin compared to oily because my cheeks tend to blend it better than my t-zone.
RMS beauty lip and cheek color in shade modest
This is my favorite blush. I have used it in my Summer makeup tutorial post. The color is a perfect balance of pink/coral/rose. It naturally brightens the face. Since it has a berry undertone, it compliments olive, brown and darker skin tones very well.
Application- Smooths on skin very nicely with a beauty blender.
Cons- Not super pigmented, which is also the reason I like it lill extra because you don’t have to worry about taking too much product. Little pricey for just a blush.
100 percent pure cocoa butter matte lipstick in shade winecup
Winecup is the prettiest wine mix pink shade. It’s perfect for every season and for occasions and for days when you like to dress up. These lipsticks are highly pigmented. Even though they are matte finish, they are highly moisturizing because of the cocoa butter in it. I also like the Sahara color for daily use.
Application- Smooth in the application
Cons- Not long-lasting for a matte lipstick but still, I highly recommend it.
100 Percent pure lengthening mascara
This is legit one of the best mascara in the market that lasts all day, never flakes, smudges very little (which can be fixed with powder) and makes your lashed look naturally long and gorgeous. Since I have a combination skin, smudging is a huge problem for me which is why I stay away from eye makeup on a daily basis but this is one product I don’t mind wearing every day.
Application- Apply nearly without any clumps.
Cons- This is actually not a con but If you are looking for a super heavy mascara then you might not like this one but you can certainly build it up with multiple quotes.
RMS Beauty Tinted Un powder in shade 2-3 Medium
I know I mentioned this product already twice here and here. I love it a lot on my skin, it’s not too heavy and doesn’t leave my skin dry. Instead, it gives a natural glow and reduces the shine on my t-zone area. I wear it almost every day when I have some time in the morning after moisturizer.
Application- I don’t like the packaging. The jar is so small, it’s hard to dispense the product. The puff is obviously small as well, doesn’t distribute the product evenly. I like applying it with a Kabuki brush instead of puff and to get more product, I always remove the top layer.
Cons- You might have to reapply it multiple times in a day if you have really oily skin. It doesn’t stay all day on my skin as well, and for the fact, no makeup ever stayed on my skin all day.
I stopped using pencil liner ever since I switched to all natural because I never found a kohl pencil that is as dark as my favorite Revlon Liner. I wouldn’t say it’s the blackest pencil liner compare to the Indian kajal standards but it is very close. But it’s doesn’t have any harmful chemicals and doesn’t irritate my eyes like every other pencil I tried did sooner or later.
Application- It glides smoothly on the lids and lower lashline but I don’t like it that much on the waterline, it’s doesn’t stick easily and you can’t glide multiple times on the waterline.
Cons- Apart from not liking it on the waterline, it also smudges very easily. I am yet to meet a pencil liner that doesn’t smudge on my eyes. Plus, It is very expensive for a pencil. This is perhaps the only product in this post I would probably not rebuy unless I haven’t found a better alternative.
