Default Natural makeup brands

So I've been watching what I'm putting in my hair and body. I've converted to using natural products. All that's left is my makeup. I'm having a real hard time finding natural makeup brands. I see that physicians formula makes the organic line now with mascara and eye liner. I'm still looking for blush and finishing veils. Any suggestions?

Everyday minerals is my go to for foundation. Their IT base works well for me. Alima is wonderful but their foundation has an odd finish and tends to get cakey. I thought it was because im too oily but recently noticed when i moisturize with oil my skin gets less oily and my makeup is much better. I can use alima now under everyday minerals to get more coverage.

Alimapure.com I think is the website. Their eyeshadows and cheek colors are nice but subtle.

I tried signature minerals and wasn't blown away.

Oh and alima has awesome samples you can buy a sample of anything they sell for $1.00 per sample. Very generous amounts too. You can email them about your color and be careful they have super light colors... I had to go 2 shades darker than what I thought becuase they have such an amazing range of shades and undertones.

Check out MakeupAlley - Street Smart Beauty - Homepage. They have a "green" board. The icons for the various boards are at the top of the page; the green board icon are 2 shoeprints/footprints. Many good suggestions there for natural/organic brands for all types of makeup. They discuss brands I'd never heard of! You can search for "makeup", "foundation", mascara, etc. to see the options that people have tried and their opinions. They also have a product review section on the website which has been hugely helpful to me over the years.

I've been wearing natural/non toxic make-up for the past 2 years. Here are my staples:

- Valana Minerals Stardust Luxury Foundation (valanaminerals.com)
- Eco Tools Make-Up Brushes (ecotools.com)
- Heritage Rose Water (as make-up setting spray | swansonvitamins.com)
- Honeybee Gardens JobaColors Eyeliner (as eyebrow pencil| swansonvitamins.com)
- Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara (Target or Rite Aid)
- Suncoat Cosmetics Natural Liquid Eyeliner (iherb.com)
- Alba Botanica Clear Lip Gloss (iherb.com)
- Burt's Bees %100 Natural Lip Glosses (Target or CVS)
- Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipsticks (iherb.com)

I don't wear blush or finishing veils. My advice would be to Google 'green beauty blog' or 'natural cosmetics'. Two of my favs are No More Dirty Looks and Organic Beauty Talk. Good luck!
