Every bride wants to channel her inner Bombshell on the day of her wedding, but it can be hard to find products that are safe while still providing long lasting and flawless beauty. I’ve rounded up some stellar organic makeup and beauty products to take the stress out of achieving wedding day perfection.
The most important part of any special occasion make up application is an organic foundation. You need something that provides good coverage without being heavy and causing irritation. There are three main types of foundation: loose powder, pressed powder and liquid. Aubrey Silken Earth Translucent base loose powder is my personal favorite as it doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles giving your skin a more youthful, smooth appearance. But if you’re looking for something with a little more solid coverage, Lavera Natural Liquid Foundation is a great organic choice.
Eye shadow, eye liner and mascara are wonderful for making your eyes pop in your wedding photographs. Though it can be a challenge to find natural and organic eye makeup products, Lavera has a variety of eye shadow shades in hot, contemporary colors (none of that granny makeup for you) and each color comes with its own mirror and applicator. They also have eye liner, mascara and even eyelash gel, all of which is organic and safe for the most sensitive of eyes.
Whether you’re a simple gloss girl or prefer to rock the red Bombshell pout, there are now several companies making organic beauty products for your lips. If you’re going with a light gloss, Desert Essence Organics lip tint comes in sheer tints like red grape and red raspberry. Never tested on animals and rich with moisturizing essential oils, it leaves your lips kissably soft. For a more dramatic look, Lavera Beautiful Lips Organic Lipstick provides rich, long-lasting color in awesome trend-sensitive hues.
No longer must you give up your desire for an all-natural life to be a Bombshell Bride. Enjoy your big day and have a bite of cake for me!
