It’s fun to explore eye shadow colors and textures with the changing seasons. We often turn to the cheapest product so we don’t fall into despair when the trends change and we find ourselves throwing out a barely-used compact of eye shadow. But, our eyes are one of the most sensitive areas on our face, so it’s wise to be conscious of the ingredients in our eyeshadow and spend the extra pennies for healthier, more natural cosmetics. Instead of giving you a list of bad ingredients versus good ingredients, we compiled a list of our nine favorite brands that have your health in mind when crafting the latest shade of eye shadow.

Eye shadow is a fun way to express yourself. Eye shadow can portray your mood, demonstrate your personality or polish your style. Whether you love to play with various color, or stick to the neutrals, there’s a perfect shade and natural cosmetic line for you.

Natural Cosmetics Challenge

This fall, challenge yourself in one of two ways when applying your makeup:

  1. Try a bold, unexpected color that you don’t naturally tend to grab. Play around with different ways to use that shade. For example, if you grab blue, pair it with brown for a more subtle look. If you want to try green, then swipe it on with gold for a stunning twist on glam. Add a dash of yellow to purple for an eye catching look or purple to silver or gray for a variation on a classic look. Be mindful of your color tone so you compliment your natural beauty rather than detract from it!
  2. Allow you eyes to express your mood through the amount of makeup up you apply, where you add it as well as what colors you wear. Thicker, darker colors express a more melancholy mood, while bright and vibrant colors show a playful and happy mood. Allow yourself to practice different application styles to signify what your experiencing on the inside. Classic application tips look studious, while shimmer and gloss exude spontaneity. Pinks and purple divulge a charming romantic and blues and greens note adventure. Take note of the changes in your mood throughout the day as well as the week to determine the best balance for your life.

Once you’re ready to take on one of these challenges, encourage your friends to join you. Be sure to compliment one another in your new look. Take note of the feedback you receive. Some people may be a little overwhelmed by the subtle change, while others will really love how you express yourself. Use that feedback to learn something more about yourself.
