5 Natural Eye Makeup Products We Love
It’s pretty obvious why we’ve gotten so interested in natural products—we’ve wised up to the fact that not only is the skin the body’s largest organ, but when we’re putting cosmetics on our mouths and eyes, well, you kind of want to know what’s in them.

Instant Makeover: Organic Lipstick With Amazing Pigment
In the past year I’ve discovered a lipstick brand that has become my absolute favorite. Bite Beauty’s colors are enticing, the formulas wear well and, best of all, their products are made with all-natural ingredients. The brand has me excited once again with a new product: the Matte Créme Lip Crayon ($24, sephora.com).

Natural Skin Care You’ll Enjoy Using
We tend to put a great deal of focus on what we put into our bodies. Many people have cut out processed foods and bulked up on organic, but what about our skin care routine? Many would argue that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put into your mouth. Those creams, serums and masks do get absorbed and pass into the blood stream after all. Now is a great time to resolve to be more mindful of the beauty products we use, and thankfully, there are plenty of great natural skin care options out there.
Game Changer: A Natural Deodorant That Actually Works
My desire for a natural deodorant was not driven by a desire to make my beauty routine as a whole more natural. I am not what you would call an environmentalist, and certainly not when it comes to makeup and skin care—I will take all of the chemicals, please, provided they’re effective. I never found that to be the case with typical deodorants from the drugstore, which were doubly disappointing in that not only were they full of potentially harmful ingredients (and smelled like it, too), but they never really seemed to work for me. All they did was irritate my skin and smell weird and plasticky in a way that similarly irritated my sensitive sense of smell. (I’m just sensitive, okay?)
What You Need To Know About Natural Beauty Products
If you’re looking to green your beauty routine, it can be hard to know where to start. Natural, organic, vegan, paraben-free: companies slap all kind of buzzwords on their packaging, but the truth is not all “eco-friendly” beauty products live up to their marketing. Even more frustrating, lots of them don’t really work.
How to Treat Combination Skin, Naturally
Products that really harmonize combination to oily and dry skin conditions are virtually unheard of; it usually takes a combination of treatments, diligence and knowing your skin, how it will change over time, and adapting to each new development to create a balanced complexion. Here is a fairly easy regimen to combat dueling skin combinations.
Shailene Woodley’s All-Natural Beauty Routine
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Shailene Woodley since the billion or so interviews she’s done to promote “Divergent,” it’s that she’s super low maintenance. She claims to not own a cell phone, only wears second-hand clothes in her free time and occasionally walks the red carpet barefoot. So it doesn’t exactly surprise us to learn that Shailene’s beauty routine is pretty low key, as well.
