There’s no questioning the fact that natural is starting to become the new normal in the beauty world: The demand for effective, high-quality, natural makeup and skin care is higher than ever, and the supply has grown exponentially in response, with new organic, small-batch brands hitting the market on the regular—and we’re not about to complain.
Here, ten of the best new (and newish) natural beauty brands you can shop right now. Yes, they’re good for your skin (the body’s largest organ!), the earth, and your environmentally conscious bragging rights, but the chic packaging will also make for a, shall we say, natural fit into your carefully art-directed Instagram flat lays. It’s a win-win.

Our collective prayers have been answered: There's finally a lipstick line that nourishes lips like a balm but imparts color like, well, a lipstick. A vibrant poppy orange, a plummy stain, a soft, earthy red that epitomizes modern beauty—it's all here, all semi-matte, and packaged in a sleek, minimalist rectangular tube that'll fit just right in your purse.

All-natural, organic, vegan, and affordable (!), this luxurious skin care line employs just a handful of ingredients in each plant-based product to ensure quality and efficacy—anything that's in there, whether it's a potent antioxidant green tea extract or virgin coconut oil, is in there for a reason.
Not everything natural has to be stripped down to bare earth-toned essentials: This whimsical Miami-based skin care brand appeals to the vibrant flower child in you. Between body butters, bath salts, roll-on perfumes, and oils infused with crystals, this line has basically everything you need to channel a '60s-era beach-going Bohème.
Luxurious, effective, eco-friendly makeup can be hard to come by, which is all the more reason to add this affordable beauty brand to your must-try list. Mascara, concealer, primer, gel eyeliner, highlighter, lip gloss, and cheek tints all got an upgrade thanks to smart all-natural formulations that don't spare pigment and wear time for good-for-you (and the earth) ingredients.
The body milks in this lineup, which all come packaged in gorgeous apothecary-style glass bottles, are less like your traditional body moisturizer and more like complex fragrances that just so happen to come in lightweight lotion form. They leave skin feeling soft and velvety smooth, and infused with scent that blends beautifully and lasts all day.

The botanical-based formulas that make up each and every product in this modern, organic line are engineered to keep all skin types dewy, fresh, and radiant. If it's a natural retinol alternative you need, they've got that, or if it's scar-healing, a spot treatment, or just overall maintenance, they've got that too.
