What’s so special about organic makeup?

We are all becoming aware of the negative effects of chemicals and toxins that can be found in many makeup products sold today. This gives organic makeup a great advantage as not only does your makeup look good it enriches and cares for your skin at the same time.

You may well ask what is a true organic makeup?

A true organic makeup range is one that contains none of the following ingredients

• No petrochemicals or any other synthetic substances
• No non-organic products of animal origins
• No talc
• No fragrances and other colour components of non-organic or synthetic origin

• No harmful preservatives such as parabens
• No GMO ingredients
• No nano particles
• Not tested on Animals
• Is Gluten Free
• Suitable for vegans and vegetarians
• Carries the certified organic label

Here’s a few of my favourite brands for you to check out.

Vibrant pigment and colour coverage love the staying power and colour intensity throughout the entire product range. The eye shadows are well worth trying.


Physician’s Formula
Great product and reasonably priced and is every bit as good as the more expensive organic ranges. Check out the mascara.


One of the first organic makeup companies launched in 2005. Still leads the way with way with its amazing product range. Every product in the range is a winner. My favourite are the lipsticks and lip–glosses fab colours, very creamy not at all sticky.


Studio 78
Intense, luminous and long lasting eye colours, which may be worn wet or dry for a variety of makeup looks and suitable for the most sensitive of eyes. Eye shadows are great to use as eyeliners when applied wet.

Bare Minerals give you great coverage and great pigmentation. Their foundations and blushers are ideal for someone prone to acne as they don’t clog the pores. The long lasting eyeliner is a must have. Goes on soft and creamy for blending, then sets to a long wearing finish that won’t smudge, smear or fade.

100% Pure
Pure colour made with fruit & vegetable pigments antioxidants and vitamins.  Fab organic makeup- range everything from primer, foundation, blusher, great eyes shadows and creams and the fruity-pigmented mascara works a treat on the lashes.

Green People
Foundations are their strength once applied looks natural and flawless, and has the staying power to last all day.
