6 ways to Green Your Makeup

Green your make-up collection by opting for make-up that relies on plant-based and organic ingredients or naturally occurring minerals in lieu of those that are full of petrochemicals, harmful preservatives, and eco-unfriendly mined ingredients. Up your green impact by also choosing make-up that comes in minimal packaging, or those packaged in renewable or recyclable materials.

  1. Choose natural foundation
