After all, if we have the option to choose a base of botanical oils over petroleum and silicone, why wouldn’t we? But, you know what isn’t a choice? Compromising on colour as a result.
Unfortunately, as nourishing, gentle and environmentally kind all-natural formulas are, they seem to fall flat when it comes to packing a pigment punch.
Natural makeup is no longer a novelty, it’s a life choice.
Gone are the days when you had to choose between natural products vs colour pay off. Burt’s Bees has nailed the perfect combo of 100% natural and 100% beautiful in its new Liquid Lipstick, £9.99. Not only is each one free from parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and SLS, the 12 show-stopping shades are also highly nourishing, with a blend of shea butter, apricot and babassu oil to soften and smooth.
But that’s not all. If you love a product that can multi-task, the brands All Aglow Lip Cheek Stick, £12.99, is the ideal choice to add a hydrating, fresh blush to both lips and cheeks.
So, which power pout shade is naturally yours? Here are the options…
Update your neutrals
For a twist on the classic nude lip, apply Burt’s Bees Liquid Lipstick with a lip brush and soften the edges for a blurred effect. Tidal Taupe, Sandy Seas and Niagara Nude are great gateway shades to full-on colour if you’re new to statement lips.
Drenched Dahlia, Garnet Glacier, Lavender Lake, Coral Cove and Rushing Rose are all big drama shades and make an instant impact on all skintones. “For a deeper tone, apply your chosen Liquid Lipstick straight from the applicator, then blot and reapply,” says Justine Jenkins, cruelty-free make-up artist to Fearne Cotton and Jodie Comer.
Berry shades such as Wine Waters, Mauve Meadow and Blush Brook are perfect for a light wash of colour. Or add a swipe of All Aglow Lip Cheek Stick for a dewy, ready-to-go glow.
