Natural Makeup

by Harper Sinclair
A recent audit of my green beauty cabinet disclosed a highly accumulated collection of 100% natural, vegan, cruelty-free beauty products.
Except.... my foundation!
My foundation was not a vegan foundation. I discovered in horror.
I had to act.
The reason was the brand, Estee Lauder sells in China, by law all beauty products sold in China are tested on animals.
I checked the ingredients, another horrifying moment.

Here I was applying a foundation full of potentially toxic chemical, synthetics, preservatives, and fillers to my face daily. What was I doing?

I needed to find a natural vegan foundation alternative that would provide me with the full coverage I was used too. Which natural makeup should I use?
Disclaimer: Full coverage foundation provides the opportunity for some people to cover blemishes, discolouration, skin redness, rosacea, scarring and or birthmarks. None of which are needing covering it is a personal choice. I choose to wear a full coverage foundation to even out my skin tone.

What natural makeup should you use?
I had previously tried several natural foundations, yet none had given me the full coverage foundation results I was accustom too. I recommend and use ECO Minerals.
Where do I find natural makeup brands that work?
My extensive clean beauty researching lead me to discover an Australia 100% natural mineral makeup brand, ECO Minerals. You can shop here and connect to the retailer.

ECO Minerals - Natural Makeup

ECO Minerals is a 100% natural ingredients natural beauty brand. All products are ethically sourced and handmade in Australia. Read more about ECO Minerals ingredients.
Products contain no fillers, no parabens, no chemical preservatives and no palm oil. Completely 100% pure natural minerals. Eco Minerals creates mineral foundations, bronzers and blushes by hand.
What is vegan makeup?
Vegan makeup or vegan beauty means it contains no animal-derived ingredients, it is not tested on animals. By law (hopefully, this will change soon) any products sold in China are required to be tested on animals. Many beauty brands will not sell their products in China. OwnMuse urges you to know more about the brands you support.
How do you use and apply a loose mineral foundation?
To obtain a light to full coverage natural foundation finish you build up the layers as you apply the makeup. Use as a powder directly on to your skin or add a spray of water, toner, face oil or moisturiser to create a liquid foundation.
Shopping Tip: I was in fact a darker shade than I had expected. 
What if the colour isn't right for you?
Eco Minerals products - whether purchased online or in-store, are 100% colour match guaranteed.  Contact them via email with details of your product purchased and comments about colour (too yellow, too dark etc) and they will then organise a replacement.

Mineral makeup

What is mineral makeup?
Mineral makeup contains anti-irritation ingredients (like zinc) that are gentler on your skin, leading to fewer breakouts. Mineral makeup won't clog your pores like traditional makeup.
ECO Mineral's makeup consists of four 100% pure natural minerals, zinc oxide, to calm skin, iron oxide, to give pigment (or provide colour), titanium dioxide, for sun protection and coverage and mica, for a beautiful finish and texture.
All minerals are ethically sourced. Why do beauty minerals need to be ethically sourced? Read more here...
How do you use mineral makeup?
You mix the foundation daily, this in its self resonated. As careful as I am to always wash my hands before applying makeup this routine was a more definitely means of keeping blemish-causing bacteria from breeding in your makeup.
For light to full coverage build up the layers of the loose mineral powder. You can apply as a powder directly on to your skin or add a spray of water or toner on to your brush to create a liquid foundation.
