Favourite Natural Make-up Tag

Favourite Natural Make-up Tag

I've been tagged by the lovely Amber from Amber's Beauty Talk to have a go at this tag.
 The tag was created by (another!) Amber over at All Naturally Beautiful.

What is your favourite foundation?
I don't wear it!
However, I have just started using REN BB Cream. Mostly because of the SPF and I wanted a bit more of an even skin tone.

What type of foundation do you prefer? Mineral, Liquid or Cream?
I suppose I'd prefer a mineral foundation, if any, as it'd help with mattifying my skin.

Have you found a favourite natural mascara?
I really love the Avril mascara that came in a SoukSouk box last summer. I actually had two of these thanks to a blog swap. It's time to start looking for a new one though and to be honest, I think I'll just buy another! 

In your opinion, what company makes the best pigments for eye shadows?
I might be a bit rubbish at this answer too as my eye shadow experience is this :
Neal's Yard Remedies - Nice to use but not very pigmented
Lily Lolo - Much better for pigmentation but I only have a quad and a duo
Urban Decay Naked 2 palette - which I AM THROWING AWAY. It's just too tempting to use otherwise.
I have got some eye shadows winging their way to me from the States from a small company call Shiro Cosmetics so I'll see how they work. I went for some of their Game of Thrones inspired colours!

Have you tried to make any of your own natural make up? If so, how did it turn out?
Bwahahaha, no. Never. While I really like mixing oils and creating balms and creams, the idea of having to make my own make up does not appeal to me!

What make up item was the hardest to switch over to a natural alternative?
I haven't really struggled, apart from my Naked palette, as I don't wear much make up.

Do you have any holy grail natural or non-toxic make up products?
While I don't wear foundation or much eye shadow, I wear mascara and eye liner on a daily basis. 
Still yet to find a good liquid eye liner.
No Holy Grails in this area though.

What is your go-to non-toxic lip product?
Balms, balms, balms. I'm currently using about three - Gwdihw Smoochy Lips, Wellgreen Lewes in Orange and bodhi Lip Treatment.

What is your favourite natural cosmetics brand?
No favourites yet as I like to look around. Lily Lolo always gets brilliant feedback so if I need something new I'd probably look at them first.

I tag:
Katie - Katie Vibes
Annie - Hello Purple Clouds
Jen - RedHead Beauty Diaries (she always looks stunning, I wanna know how!)


  1. Yay thanks for doing this tag, I really enjoyed reading your answers! I really like the Avril mascara too, not sure why I bought a different one to be honest I should have just stayed with that one! I'd love to find a natural liquid or gel eyeliner too!

  2. You're welcome! I felt a bit like a lost little girl answering the questions though - mineral, liquid, cream foundation?? waaaa? hahaha xx

  3. Great answers, I think I got tagged for this but I only use foundation so I'm clueless, I know lots of natural makeup brands but can't vouch for if they are any good. If you object to Carmine, then watch out for some Lily Lolo products because they contain this ingredient

    1. The carmine is in the lipsticks, from what I remember? Yucky :(

  4. Enjoyed your answers Jen and thanks for tagging me x

    1. You're welcome Annie, can't wait to see what your answers are! x

  5. I'm glad I was able to swap away my Naked 2 recently coz I felt it'll be such a waste to just throw it in the bin! I've used many Asian brands liquid liner and they were great, but currently I'm loving the fudge brownie one from The All Natural Face!

    1. I've passed mine on too as I couldn't just let it go completely! I'll have to have a look at TANF one! x

  6. Great tag! I am a huge fan of Avril mascara, it's one of the best mascaras I know :)

    1. Thanks for commenting :) I really like the Avril one so will deffo use it again x

  7. I enjoyed reading your answers! I am really going to have to try some of those balms! - ugh my lips are dry as we ....speak (write) hahaha

    1. There are some great balms out there. My favourite ones lately have been SW Basics and Herbfarmacy. I've got a couple of Hurraw! ones to try next which I'm looking forward to using x
