Beauty may be skin deep, but good makeup helps bring it out. There are thousands of makeup brands that all claim they’re ‘all-natural,’ but what does it really mean?

All-natural ingredients in makeup are, simply, what they sound like: plant extracts, minerals, vitamins, berries, herbs…the list goes on. All-natural makeup, especially the kind that’s organic, is not better for the just environment, but they’re better for your body too.
