There are so many little things that change when you’re pregnant.
I mean, besides the obvious <baby bump>, there are so many things that I would normally do, eat or use without much thought and out of habit. Once I was pregnant again, it all suddenly had to change. We all know the usual suspects like: no sushi, no glass of champagne, no cup of morning coffee, certain workouts, etc. the list goes on but one thing that I became hyper-conscious of is my makeup.
I did a lot of research and was so happy to find that there are so many amazing nontoxic products out there! You just have to put in a little work! If you haven’t heard me talk about it already, the app called ‘Think Dirty‘ is the best way to figure out what products have the least amount of toxins in them.
Keep scrolling to discover some of my favorite nontoxic makeup brands at the moment!
I’m sure you’ve seen me talking Tata Harper products a ton lately, like in this post and this post! The brand was founded in 2010 in Vermont and have been making incredible skincare and beauty products ever since. They believe in beauty without compromise and all of their products are natural and nontoxic. One of my favorite parts about Tata Harper, besides the fact that their products are amazing (like the lip and cheek tint pictured above!), is that their skincare lab is filled with female scientists! How cool is that?
Lilah B. might have some of the chicest packaging out there. They’re like little stones filled with amazing product! All of their products are formulated to be vegan and cruelty-free as well as being jam-packed with a ton of amazing ingredients like aloe to make your makeup work for you!
LashFood was founded by a mother and daughter who teamed up to find a healthy, clean, and effective way to thicken and lengthen lashes with ingredients inspired by nature. Made with all plant-based ingredients, their products like this lash extension in a bottle are good for your skin and good for the earth!
With the idea that clean-beauty should be more of a norm than a fad, ILIA was created to make women feel empowered and confident, both with themselves and in the products they choose. Not only are the products themselves consciously clean, but their packaging is too! Right now I’m really loving their illuminator! Made to be both beautiful and sustainable with the perfect summer glow. What’s not to love?
If you haven’t heard of Glossier, you’re probably not on Instagram too much! Though they aren’t necessarily marketed as a “clean” brand, a lot of their products score really well on the Think Dirty app! Just typing in the brand name shows that a lot of the products that I love from Glossier (including the balmdotcom) are made with clean ingredients.
FACEatelier is a cult beauty product like no other. Their foundation is used by tons of makeup artists (which is actually how I was introduced to the brand!) and are all about innovation. They’re made without scent, totally animal-friendly and vegan.
