Burt's Bees Blushing Creme
Unsurprisingly, beeswax is a key ingredient. Cocoa butter and rosemary oil keep skin
soft and clear.
Dr. Hauschka Translucent Makeup
If most foundation covers skin like a curtain, Dr. Hauschka's is a veil of sheer gauze. Instead of hiding skin, it just mutes redness and blotchiness -- sans preservatives or synthetic fragrances.
Eye Colors Flower
Waxes lend these shadows impressive staying power -- even after several hours of wear, they don't crease.
Lavera Volume Mascara
It won't produce lashes of quite the same magnitude as the bigger-is-better brands. But if you're after a natural "I was born this way" look, Lavera's mascara certainly delivers.
Dr. Hauschka Body Powder
This silk-and-rice powder may sell as a body product, but it's unbeatable at absorbing oil and setting makeup.
Aveda Lip Color Concentrate
Made with soothing, smoothing jojoba oil and aloe, this dense, pigment-rich lip color also has certifiedorganic berry extracts to help protect and nourish the skin.
Thanks to the strict European cosmetics standards it follows and the organic ingredients it contains, this German-born blush is one of the purest around.
Origins Flower Fusion
The flower and rice-bran waxes in this lipstick bind to the lips, bringing color that lasts and lips that don't dry out. It comes in 24 shades, all complexion-friendly.
Zia Natural Skincare Powder
It can top foundation, but for a less-is-more look that lasts, apply it alone with a damp makeup sponge.
The Body Shop Eye Definer and Lip Liner
Thanks to healthy plant fats from palm kernel and marula tree oils, the Body Shop' s eye- and lip-liners smudge enough to smooth out a less-than-perfect line but stay put throughout the day.
Origins Rain and Shine Lip Tint With SPF 15
Among the perks of this healthier choice: The natural flavor and fragrance of vanilla and mint oils, not to mention deliciously sheer color.
JASON Temptations Moisturizing Lip Tint
An Eva Scrivo favorite, it goes on sheer, feels smooth (not sticky), and tastes like peppermint.
Read why this makeup is actually healthy.
