MY TIPS FOR BUYING NATURAL MAKEUP ON A BUDGET

1. Always use coupons when you can. I always go and sign up for email subscriptions or memberships from natural makeup brands I love, since I’ve noticed they always send great coupons and discounts through there.

2. Check your local health food and beauty stores for the products you want to buy. With natural makeup sometimes it can be hard to find a stockiest, but I’ve always had luck at my local health food store. I love buying my makeup at the health food store for a number of reason, the main one being they tend to give out really great discounts to frequent shoppers.

3. You should always check a couple of different websites that stock the makeup brand you want before purchasing a product. I always love comparing the prices (with shipping included) and seeing were I can get the best deal.

4. The best advice I received when I first wanted to try natural makeup is slowly grow your collection and stick to buying the essentials first. Products like foundation, mascara and eye pallets make for a great starting base when your first getting into natural makeup. Build a foundation for your natural makeup collection and watch it grow from there.

Mineral Fusion is the #1 natural cosmetic brand in the United States, or so I’ve heard. I’m not from the US so I can’t confirm this, but from reviews I’ve read it seems they create some kickass products. Their ingredient list is very natural and they only select the most effective natural ingredients, as well as making their products free of gluten, parabens, talc, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, SLS, and phthalates. Their range of makeup works wonders at improving your complexion whilst also nourishing your skin.

Product Range: They have a great wide selection of products to choose from, – eye pencils, lip glosses, lipsticks, concealers, eye-shadows and foundations to name a few of the many.

Color Range: From neutrals to pastels Mineral Fusions got it all. Their wide range of colors and shades I think make it easy for everyone to find something they’ll love and treasure.

Product Range: They have a nice range of foundations, powders, and blushes but I think eye-shadows is really were they excel at the most. They have one of the most largest and diverse selection of eye-shadows that I’ve ever seen.

Color Range: Lily Lolo I think has one of the most beautiful selection of colors and shades to choose from. Just one look at their eye-shadows and you would think you were looking at a rainbow, they’re just gorgeous. But don’t take my word on it, go and check them out for yourself, you won’t be sorry.
