Au Naturale was one of the first clean beauty brands I started using on my green beauty journey that continues to be one of my favorites. Their luxury cosmetics are all handcrafted in small batches. Not only are their products glamorous, but they are on a clean beauty revolution to provide safe products that are farm-to-face fresh and are also environmentally friendly.
They have so many options for the green beauty enthusiast or those new to the green beauty world. Au Naturale is a complete range of organic beauty products ranging from lip products, cheek products, eyeshadow, foundation, concealer, and even vegan synthetic brushes. Plus, their packaging is lightweight and their containers can be recycled through their recycling program to minimize the impact on the environment. Here are some of my favorite products for an eco-chic green beauty experience.
Au Naturale foundations come in powder (pictured) or creme form for a semi-matte finish and buildable coverage. For a beautiful airbrushed finish, I recommend using the powder foundation with a Powder Brush. It may take a little longer, but the look is worth it. I’ve also found that having a hydrating serum or primer on gives the powder foundation a dewy soft look. Both foundations are lightweight, but if your skin is on the dry side, the creme foundation is more nourishing and provides a moisturizing coverage. The creme foundation comes in a stick, which I like to apply directly to my face and then blend in with my fingers for a creamy finish.
Au Naturale has creme and powder highlighters that add a beautiful, luminous glow to the skin. The Rose Gold Highlighter is one of my go to multi-taskers. I use it on my cheeks as a highlighter or blush and I’ve even used on my lips for a rosy gold pout. It’s so easy to use that just a few swipes on the cheeks add an instant extra sparkle. The rose gold is beautiful for all skin tones and can be used every day.
Powder Eye Shadow
I mainly use the powder eyeshadows but they also come in creme. The highly pigmented mineral eye shadow colors are so fun, fresh, and vibrant. Some of my favorites are Ballet, Mahogany, Empress and Cerulean Blue (pictured). One of my favorite methods is to wet the mineral shadow with an angle liner brush and use it as an eyeliner. Au Naturale shadows are lightweight and last all day.
Au Naturale lipsticks are nourishing with staying power. These are made from organic oils and rich mineral pigments with so many shades to choose from. I’m always reaching for my Sangria lipstick. It is bold purple/pink and adds a great pop of color that I think would be suitable for all skin tones. For a more defined look, I apply the lipstick using a lip brush or a lip pencil. A little lipgloss on top adds that wow factor for extra shine and dimension.
Natural Lip Gloss
I love to wear these non-sticky vibrant lip glosses alone or add a touch after applying lipstick. Au Naturale glosses are highly pigmented and give a gorgeous shine. They also smell great. Seriously gorgeous glosses that match the dynamic color you see in the tube. Plus, they are vegan with no beeswax or carmine. My favorites are Ravish (pictured) and Orchid.
Au Naturale also has several make-up kits that would be great for those making the transition to green products. It gives you the opportunity to test a little bit of everything in the line. My personal favorites are the Green Eye and Brown Eye Palette that helps bring out my hazel eyes as well as the Light Starter Kit.
