7 Clean Multi-Use Makeup Products: A Minimalist Essential
In an effort to simplify my beauty routine, I've turned to multi-tasking cosmetics that can be used for cheeks, lips and eyes alike. Whether in stick or jar format, here are 7 non-toxic beauty products will make you feel more put together with just a few swipes.
RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek
A unique formula made with raw ingredients to hydrate and protect the skin, these nourishing stains by RMS Beauty give lips and cheeks a natural, beautiful glow. The organic ingredients help to nourish delicate skin (especially in winter months), while providing a healthy flush. I have the color Modest, a fresh berry pink color that looks great on all skin tones and Illusive, a burnt rose hue.
Vapour Aura Multi-Use Blush
This clean, non-toxic multi-tasker glides onto the cheeks, lips, and eyes in one convenient stick. It blends like a dream and gives a natural flush of color while nourishing the skin with hard-working organic ingredients, such as Frankincense and Lotus. This is the perfect product to throw in your purse for when you need a quick pick-me-up. I love the light texture and universally-flattering colors such as Virtue, a soft rose and Eros, a sultry mauve.
Noto Organics Multi-Benne Tint
Noto Botanics is a multi-use, minimal cosmetic line from celebrity makeup artist, Gloria Noto. Her popular Multi-Benne Tint provides a healthy, sheer wash of color with nourishing and organic ingredients found in nature. Available in both pot and stick form in the colors Ono Ono, a burnt orange or Oscillate, a classic buildable red; this is a high quality stain for lips, cheeks and eyes that won't compromise your health!
Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint
Formulated and packaged at their farm in Vermont, Tata Harper's 100% naturally-derived and non-toxic tint is smooth and easily buildable. Delivering the perfect pop of natural, dewy color to lips and cheeks, this tint also moisturizes and promotes a plump appearance thanks to nourishing plant-based minerals. This green glass container is the perfect 2-in-1 product that you'll want to keep in your desk, your car and your purse. My fan-favorite is Very Naughty- a classic, rich ruby red with a dewy, glossy finish.
W3ll People Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick
This all-in-one vegan product by W3LL People acts as a blush, eyeshadow and lip color in one convenient color stick. Its creamy and blendable formula allows for a smooth and easy application, unveiling a natural glow that looks like you just came from working out. Its non-toxic formula is rich in skin-soothing organic aloe and antioxidants to hydrate skin and improve skin quality while providing a beautiful sheer, glow from within. With no creasing, flattering shades for all skin tones and easy application, this is a multitasking product that even the makeup newbie can use. The Nude Berry color is the perfect fall/winter shade.
Olio E Osso Tinted Balm
OLIO E OSSO is a line of beautiful nourishing balms that are made by hand and adorably packaged in Portland, Oregon. These small-batch balms are made with shea oils and olive oils; known for their deeply emollient properties that are safe to lather on your lips, face and body. The pigments are sheer and flattering in a your-lips-but-better way. Perfect for the low-key beauty who gravitates away from lipsticks and gloss, this balm provides a super-natural prettiness that brightens up your whole face without appearing 'done'. A personal favorite is No. 5- a raisin hue that enhances the complexion in a beautifully, subtle way.
Ilia Multi Stick
The soft, buttery texture of this versatile tint for lips, cheeks and eyes melts into the skin and has buildable coverage that's impossible to overdo. Organic ingredients of shea butter, avocado oil, and Vitamin E melt seamlessly into the skin and provide much needed nourishment in the dry months. I adore the color Cheek to Cheek, a burnt sienna hue with a rich warmthness that looks great with olive and darker skin tones.
