Now that we are in the swing of summer, it’s the perfect opportunity to update your look.  Instead of buying makeup that is packed with artificial ingredients, opt for natural makeup featuring botanicals and nutrients that feed your skin. Here are some of our favorite picks for the face, eyes and lips from natural brands you can trust. Also, make sure to watch us on Everyday this Monday to learn more about these fabulous products!

For the Face –  Rejuva Minerals

Rejuva Minerals was developed in collaboration with professional makeup artists in order to bring consumers effective, natural options that work well on even the most sensitive skin.

Based in Denver, Mineral Fusion began as a mineral cosmetics brand in 2007 and now is the leading natural cosmetic brand proudly offering cosmetics that help to improve the complexion while nourishing the skin. We especially love their eye shadows in distinct shades, which go on flawlessly and do not crease. For instance, the Diversity Trio Eye Shadow palette offers a delightful trio of rich plum, shimmering pink & matte taupe that looks good on just about everyone. The fabulous Eye Pencils are enriched with skin-soothing botanicals to glide on smoothly and define and enhance eyes. Also, make sure to check out their NEW Glow & Go Volumizing Mascara with a full-bristle brush that effortlessly coats to create thicker and fuller lashes. www.mineralfusion.com
