10 Natural Make Up Items For Plastic Free Beauty

The beauty industry can be a difficult one to navigate when picking skincare products that are kind to your face, the world and the animals we share it with. So we have handpicked our favourites that allow you to make conscious, plastic free and cruelty free decisions. We have listed vegan, natural and plastic free make up and beauty products like mascara, powder foundation, powder concealer, nail polish and many more.

If you are looking for more on other beauty products (not including makeup) but instead like a bamboo toothbrush, an alternative to shampoo like a shampoo bar, cotton swabs and many others these can be found in our other blog post 10 Products to Make Your Bathroom Plastic Free & Zero Waste.

1. Aloe Vera Organic Refillable Mascara, £21.75

Zao's Aloe Vera Mascara delivers intense definition, volume and durability with its clever structured lash-by-lash brush wand. Its nourishing formula cares for your lashes with organic aloe vera, castor oil and shea butter whilst coating your lashes from root to tip with intense colour. Perfect for evening wear, this mascara will give your lashes va-va-voom! We love this makeup as you can also purchase a refill, instead of creating plastic packaging waste like with traditional mascara.

2. Bamboo Refillable Palette, £17

This bamboo refillable palette by Zao is a great way to avoid plastic packaging when buying makeup. It is reusable so you will only ever have to buy this once and you get to pick the makeup separately that you would like to fill it with. It makes for easy storage and transport. It has a magnetic lid, a magnetic base to store refills securely and features a mirror inside the top lid. This palette holds either 2 powder refills (blush, compact powderhighlighter, eye primer); or 4 eye shadow refills; or 1 powder and 2 eyeshadow refills.

3. Red & Berried Lip Balm, £5.70

6. Individual Bamboo MakeUp Brush, from £4

This vegan and eco-friendly makeup brush by Flawless is approved by PETA. They believe that beauty does not have to come at the expense of animal welfare and so all of their brushes are luxurious and vegan, containing no animal hair. The hand finished synthetic fibres are ultra soft yet firm enough to effortlessly apply your makeup with a flawless finish. This brush comes in 8 different styles. Also, we love that this makeup brush comes packaging free, it is not even wrapped in a recyclable cardboard packaging.

7. 10-Free Nail Varnish, £11.50

red natural 10 free nail varnish with bamboo lid.

This vegan Zao nail polish is packaged in a glass bottle with a bamboo lid and it comes in a variety of beautiful colours. These nail polishes are '10-free' which means that 10 known toxins and animal derived ingredients traditionally found in nail polish have been replaced; without any toxic ingredients and enriched in silica from bamboo oil, you can use them without limitation. Organic water-based nail polishes chip and flake very easily, so Zao has devised a nail polish that delivers the quality of traditional nail polishes but without the toxic chemicals, resulting in an effective and long-lasting nail polish that does not compromise your health. For more information please take a look at our blog post What is Non-Toxic Nail Varnish and How To Have A Vegan & Eco Friendly Manicure At Home?

8. SPF 15 Skin Brightening Face & Body Moisturiser, £28.99

Add this beautiful and luxurious product by Antipodes to your beauty routine to brighten your skin. It is made with certified organic ingredients and is our go-to moisturiser this summer, no matter the weather. We have selected this product as it seems to be the only (almost) plastic free and natural moisturiser available in the UK with an SPF rating...!! We love that they use raspberry seed oil to utilise the natural sun protection found in this.

9. Mirror, £10

bamboo mirror for handbag.

This bamboo handbag mirror is a stylish and compact mirror to apply or check your lipstick, blush or any other makeup on the move. It features a magnetic closure and opens out to a mirror on each side. Fitting into the smallest of handbags, purses or pockets. This truly is the best alternative to the plastic packaging that can encase other highstreet store mirrors.

10. Organic Cotton Wash Bag, from £8.99

marble blue and pink print on large and small wash bags.

This 100% organic cotton wash bag by Lani is the ultimate reusable bag for transporting your toiletries and cosmetics or any other items you need to keep organised. Lightweight, yet sturdy, they come in stunning swirl prints, are embossed with a Lani logo and finished with a gleaming metal zip and a cotton zipper pull. This organic cotton bag comes in two different sizes and we think the small is perfect as a makeup bag.

  • Thank you DOCTOR ODUNGA for making me fertile after 22 years of marriage. I am a barren woman, in fact now it is, I was a barren woman. I say this testimony in regards to Doctor Odunga who granted my wish after 22 years of marriage. No one in my people and friends or family believed I would ever get pregnant, not to talk of giving birth. Now I am a mother of twins? I am indeed the happiest woman to say this testimony for everyone to read. I am Eunice Stein. I am 54 years of age. This is my first writing on the net about anything this serious, especially as for 22 years I have not been pregnant once since I got married to my husband. Please, do you need help with your fertility problem? CONTACT DOCTOR ODUNGA. Do you need your problem solved such as getting your ex back? CONTACT DOCTOR ODUNGA. He is the solution to all your problems. His online email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com he will solve all your problems OR Whats-App/Call +2348167159012
