Swap your all time faves for natural, clean makeup alternatives.

I hear ya, you’d like to swap to using healthier, clean makeup and beauty products, but there’s no way you’re going to part with your MAC/Lancome/Chanel, because “natural products are never as good as the conventional ones”, right? WRONG!!

I’ve got some great news for you though. The whole reason I started this little hub of natural makeup and beauty goodness was because I was sick of seeing lists of un-pronounceable and potentially damaging chemicals on the back of beauty products. Then, of course, looking for an alternative and coming up short on the performance side of things.

Years of label reading and makeup artistry later, I’ve compiled a fantastic array of natural makeup and beauty products that really work. Some alternatives I’ve found are even Certified Organic and vegan, and all of them are cruelty-free to boot.

Switching to natural, clean makeup products doesn’t have to mean compromise as far as quality’s concerned though. All the alternatives below perform just as well as (sometimes even better than) their synthetic counterparts. It means you can replicate your favourite looks super easily without harming your skin or the planet as you go.

Here are your top cult favourites and their natural alternatives. Slowly replace synthetic products for ones like these and you’ll have a gorgeous natural makeup bag in no time.

Don’t keep your clean makeup triumphs to yourself though…

I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments. If there’s anything that you just can’t live without, but hate the thought of all the nasties, let me know and I’ll endeavour to find it’s natural doppelgänger!
