Although Dr. Hauschka is better known for its holistic skincare products, it also carries foundations, blushes, eyeshadows, and lipsticks that are just as natural and effective. I’m partial to the good doctor’s volume mascara, which makes your lashes look lush and full without any harsh chemicals.
Perfect for folks with sensitive skin or allergies, Jane Iredale’s line of mineral makeup is non-comedogenic and oil-free, which keeps your pores from clogging. I love its variety of eyeshadows, blushes, and lipsticks, all of which come in myriad sumptuous shades.
Approved by one of Germany’s strictest natural-cosmetics certifiers, Lavera’s foundations, concealers, mascaras, eyeshadows, and lipsticks are not only 100 percent natural, but they’re also gluten-, paraben-, and cruelty-free.
Guided by the principle “minerals with a mission,” Mineral Fusion offers a wide selection of vegan-friendly cosmetics devoid of gluten, parabens, talc, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances. The lipsticks are one of my go-to products—they glide on smoothly and last for hours.
Suki doesn’t just source fair-trade, biodynamic ingredients; it’s also one of the few companies that makes it products entirely by hand, resulting in virtually zero carbon emissions. A particular favorite is the multitasking lip-and-cheek cream, which gives your skin—and pout—a dewy, natural flush.
Leave it to a brand inspired by European spa traditions to blend skin-coddling (and cruelty-free) ingredients such as herb extracts and essential oils with a fresh palette of sophisticated colors. Two products to put on top of your list? ZuZu Luxe’s non-irritating mascara and lead-free lip gloss.
