Earth Day 2013: The Best Of Natural Beauty


We’re all about “natural” makeup for day-to-day though we don’t normally pass up an opportunity to go all-out glam if the right event comes along. But just because a makeup product looks natural, that doesn’t mean that its ingredients are, too. We want to make sure that the stuff we’re putting on our face each day is full of vitamins and minerals that our skin needs to look radiant, as opposed to artificial substances that can clog pores, or worse. So as you celebrate Earth Day, be sure to extend your enviro-friendly habits beyond your recycling bins, to your own complexion. From brushes to balms, these beauty items use the Earth’s resources as its primary ingredients to give you a truly natural look.
