Organic Makeup Shopping Tips
You’re applying your makeup and you accidentally get some mascara in your eye. As you rinse your eye out for the hundredth time, you start to wonder why you didn’t go with a less abrasive organic product.
As you start the search for gentle, organic products for natural beautification, apply a few of these tips for success:
- Ask about samples—organic makeup can be expensive, so it’s important to be sure you get the right shade and texture.
- Add a facecloth to your shopping cart. Many of those disposable cloths for makeup removal aren’t biodegradable, though biodegradable options are out there—look at your natural health foods store.
- Avoid all that pretty packaging—organic makeup that comes wrapped in several layers of packaging isn’t very green.
