Shopping for natural makeup doesn't have to melt your credit card (or be doused with chemicals). Here are some of my favourite natural makeup products that will give you change from $20.
Benecos Natural BB Cream 8-in-1, $16.95. This BB Cream evens out skin tone, lightens pigmentation, and covers up imperfections. Shea butter, acai oil and pomegranate seed extract help to smooth and soften your complexion. It also mattifies and moisturises the skin, all in a lightweight cream formula.
Benecos Natural Mascara Maximum Volume in Deep Black, $13.95. You can achieve incredible lash volume without assistance from nasty chemicals that are found in mainstream mascaras. This formula is blended with with organic jojoba oil for silky smooth, non-clumpy lashes. Apply one or two coats to build lash volume.
Benecos Natural Quattro Eyeshadow in Beautiful Eyes, $14.95. This palette contains versatile, long-lasting pink, orchid, amethyst and taupe shades. The powders deliver a highly pigmented and velvety finish. These are made from organic tapioca starch and natural mineral pigments, and can be blended easily.
Lavera Beautiful Mineral Eyeshadow in Latte Macchiato, $19.95. This eyeshadow is universally flattering; the shimmery bronze, mauve shade brightens all eye colours. It is made with all natural mineral ingredients including argan oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter.
Noosa Basics Eyelash & Brow Revitaliser, $18.45. Use this serum on lashes and brows twice a day for 4-6 weeks to help strengthen fine hairs and promote hair growth. It is made with castor oil, grape seed oil and vitamin E to ensure soft yet strong lashes and brows.
Benecos Natural Lipstick in Soft Coral, $16.95. This lipstick offers a very flattering rosy-peach pigment in a creamy, long-lasting formula. It feels soft on the lips, and is rich in smoothing ingredients such as castor oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, and sunflower seed oil.
Benecos Lip Gloss in Kiss Me, $14.95, boasts plenty of beneficial ingredients including castor seed oil, sunflower seed oil, vitamin C and E, beeswax, and candelilla wax. This combination creates a slick (not sticky) gloss with a cherry red pigment.
Mineral Fusion Sheer Moisture Lip Tint in Blush, $9.95. This vanilla-mint flavoured lip tint is a fabulous nude pink that seems to suit everyone! The moisturising formula contains cocoa butter, so it does more for your lips than just look naturally gorgeous. For this price you could afford two!
Hurraw! Organic Lip Balm in Black Cherry, $6.45. This is easily one of my most used lip products. It is tinted with real cherries which gives the lips a hint of tint, while sweet almond oil, coconut oil and jojoba oil hydrate your lips. I love the convenient pocket-friendly oval shape of the tubes, and the fair-trade, finest raw ingredients.
