Let’s face it, while there are a few women out there whose natural beauty seem to outshine even the most well made-up diva, most of us require a little assistance. If you love to glam up your look but are afraid of what all that lip gloss and mascara could be doing to the environment (and to your body), check out our list of some of the best Eco-friendly makeup lines available.
Josie Maran Cosmetics… Model and Dancing with the Stars contestant Josie Maran launched this Eco-friendly line back in 2006. Maran teamed up with the Environmental Working Group’s site Skin Deep to create the cosmetics’ formulas. Each product is made from all natural ingredients like Argan oil, cucumber, apricot and avocado, and the line offers every product imaginable from concealer and eyeliner to their latest summer must have, Bohemian Waves Argan Hair Mist.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear… Physicians Formula is a brand that’s been around for years. Many dermatologists used to recommend this brand of makeup to women with sensitive or acne prone skin.

Everything about this line from the products themselves to the packaging they come in is environmentally safe. Cargo PlantLove offers an array of products from their Green Goddess eye shadow kit to the summer go-to baked bronzer.

Covergirl Natureluxe… Covergirl is a tried and true brand that has been around since your mother was shopping for foundation. However recently the brand hopped on the Earth-loving bandwagon and created a line of Eco-friendly products. The Natureluxe line includes a selection of paraben-free foundations, mascaras, and lip glosses infused with ingredients like jojoba, cucumber, and honey. And let’s face it, with sweet songster Taylor Swift as their spokesperson, how could they go wrong?
