Natural Makeup Starter Kit

While transitioning to a sulfate-free body wash may seem more appealing than ditching your favorite lipstick, it's ok to let go. There are so many gorgeous, clean alternatives out there! Your switch to natural makeup doesn't have to be drastic or overwhelming. Replacing your entire makeup bag all at once is going to drive you crazy and you will be left yearning for your old standbys. Try experimenting with just a couple of new products at a time until you know what you like and what works best for you. There are also several green beauty shops that offer samples and trial sizes that you can experiment with (Detox Market & Integrity Botanicals).

With this post, I have tried to curate a collection of versatile products for a cost-effective natural makeup starter kit. Whether you are new to green beauty or are a seasoned lover looking to expand your makeup arsenal, you are going to fall in love with these fabulous essentials!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pretty Naked Palette

$45 USD for 0.14 oz (4 g) each of luminizer & blush, 0.07 oz (2 g) each of eye shadow

Pigmented with fruits, seeds, flowers and vegetables, this beautiful palette contains a luminizer, blush, and three neutral eye shadows. The texture of these pressed powders is soft and silky-smooth. While the luminizer is subtle, it adds a fresh radiance when combined with the blush. The intensity of the eye shadows is good, but not great.

Alima Pure Natural Definition Eye Pencils

$18.00 for 0.04 oz (1.14 g)

These pencils are fantastic! They are highly pigmented and glide on without tugging or skipping. I particularly enjoy Paper, a soft white hue, along my waterline for a bright, eyeopening effect.

Lily Lolo Mascara

$19.50 for 0.23 oz. (7 ml)

The bristle brush and thickening formulation of this mascara add lots of volume to my unruly lashes! I also find that this mascara lengthens and separates incredibly well when I really wiggle the brush back-and-forth starting at the base of my lashes and working upward.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

$38 USD for 0.17 oz (4.82 g)

This product is an absolute staple in the green beauty community!! If you have been searching for the perfect dewy glow, look no further! Living Luminizer is a sheer, pearly highlighter that provides an absolutely beautiful lit from within radiance. This little pot of magic packs a punch, so beware that a little goes a long way!

RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up

$36 USD for 0.20 oz (5.67 g)

This cream can be used as both a foundation and a concealer because the coverage builds up so flawlessly! I like to apply a thin layer all over my face using a damp Beauty Blender and then go back in with my finger to tap a little extra product underneath my eyes to conceal.

Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi Use in Artemis

$36 USD for 0.24 oz (6.80 g)

I am obsessed with the gorgeous berry-mauve hue of this multi-tasking cream! I find that it creates the perfect natural flush for my pale complexion, but it also looks stunning on the eyes and lips! Once warmed up on the back of my hand, this product melts flawlessly into the skin for a glamorous, seductive look! Artemis is a limited edition shade, so stock up before time runs out! Review here.

W3ll People Bio Brightener Invisible Powder

$24 for 0.21 oz (5.9 g)

I use this superfine powder to help set concealer and cream eye shadow. It imparts a healthy radiance to the face and the almost undetectable shimmer provides a soft-focus effect.

W3ll People Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer

$22.50 USD for 0.25 oz (7.4 ml)

This concealer has a gorgeous, mousse-like texture that is silky to the touch. It offers some serious coverage, but is still quite buildable and brightening. This cream also blends smoothly onto the skin and is surprisingly soothing to the delicate skin underneath the eyes. Review here.

W3ll People Nudist Colorbalms

$15.75 for 0.375 oz (10 g)

I previously reviewed this Colorbalm in No. 7 (check out my post here), but there are several other gorgeous hues to choose from. These tinted balms provide a subtle wash of color and the addition of peppermint oil makes for a refreshing tingle upon application. The formulation is also rather hydrating, so your lips will stay plump and moisturized all day long.

I hope that this was helpful! What are your product recommendations for green beauty beginners?
