Even though it’s not quite spring, we’re experiencing a bit of springtime weather where we live. So, we’re intuitively turning toward lighter and brighter makeup like sheer foundations and pastel eye color. The warmer days are calling for blushes that make our cheeks glow and lipsticks in softer shades.
As we revamp our makeup bag to get ready for a new season, we wanted to share some products that we think you’ll love for spring. The following vegan and cruelty-free makeup, and skincare, items could surely be a fresh and pleasant part of any spring beauty routine.
For a light foundation that celebrates the natural beauty of your skin, while giving you great coverage, try NatureGirlz Cosmetics Il Natural Non-Toxic and Organic Tinted BB Cream Mineral Moisturizer. This light, vegan, and acne-safe moisturizing base is sold on Etsy and it’s handmade in small batches. It contains sunscreen, so you can wear it during the day to stay stunning and protected. Reach for this product when you’re heading to the beach, the botanical garden, or wherever you like to roam on pretty spring days.
Pacifica Beauty’s Solar Complete Color Mineral Palette is collection of eye shadows in shades from neutral to pink to baby blue. It contains a couple of bronzer powders too, for a complete spring makeup kit. This eye shadow palette has all the colors you’ll need for getting beautiful, for any spring day or night. If you don’t want to wear eye shadow one day, reach for your palette and just use the blush or a little of the Coconut Highlighters to brighten up your eye lids. Pacifica Beauty’s eye shadows are all-natural, vegan, and cruelty-free.
To give your cheeks a little glow for spring, again turn to Pacifica Beauty. We love the line’s Blushious Coconut & Rose Infused Cheek Color, which is soft, translucent, and super-natural looking. It is, of course, made with all natural ingredients as we like. This blush’s official color is called Wildrose, but it’s got more of a light pinky peach hue than a typical rose-color look.
Springtime mascara needs to be natural looking for us, which means we grab Gabriel Cosmetic’s Mascara in Brown. But, if natural for you is dark lashes, you can still go with Gabriel Cosmetics. All Gabriel Cosmetics mascaras offer great stand-out coverage and they make your lashes look super feminine. The mascaras are gentle and they wash off easily with water.
Along with these vegan and cruelty-free beauty products for spring, we love Pacifica Beauty’s Blushing Bunnies Nail Color and Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Green Tea Sunscreen.
Some of these products are available in Whole Foods Market and other health stores. All of them can be purchased online on the companies’ websites.
