Reader Question re: Natural Mineral Makeup

I just wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone who joined my blog this weekend. I finally do not feel like I am talking to myself! Also, a special HELLO to Vintage Makeup who has been asking me lots of questions on makeup and it has been super fun helping her out. Some of you might not have spotted our conversations in the comment section so I thought it might be nice to share with you all.

The big stumbling block for me when it comes to questions about make up is I wear very little. My cosmetic routine consists of foundation and for special occasions I may use blush, lipstick or a lip tint. I had so many allergic reaction to makeup on the high street that I gave up on that years ago. Green beauty is a new trend, when I was a teenager (the time when most of us experiment with makeup) I was not aware of natural alternatives or whether they were even available.

You're unlikely to find natural mineral makeup at Boots and Superdrug so the alternative on the high street would be a local wellbeing store or Holland & Barrett. Brands to look out for here are Benecos, Pacifica and Lavera. Shopping online opens up more options and the market is always expanding. Check out websites such as Love Lula, Naturisimo, My Pure, Content Beauty, Glow Organic, Lucy Rose and Big Green Smile. I'd recommend looking at brands such as Ere Perez, Green People, Odylique, Inika, Dr Hauschka, Antipodes, RMS Beauty.

I hope this has been of interest and helpful. Let me know if you try any of these brands.
