I may receive commissions from purchases made through links in this article. Full Disclosure

If you’ve been following my blog then you probably have realized that I do like to make many of my beauty products myself. However, I can’t make everything and even some that I could, I just don’t want to.

I don’t have time to make all my products. Makeup is one area that I buy most of my products instead of make them.

Trying to find a natural makeup can be hard. There area quite a few brands out there and it’s hard to tell what’s good without trying it out first.

However, with the cost of makeup, you also don’t want to just throw money at all the options.

Here is a list of some natural makeup options that I’ve either personally used or have heard great reviews from other natural living women.
