13 Natural Eyeshadows for a Polished Look
Natural eyeshadows ensure that you can play with makeup without feeling concerned about the ingredients. It’s a perfect choice for sensitive skin, or any skin really; after all, eyeshadow is one of the cosmetics that’s applied closest to your eyes, so we want to be sure there’s no toxins around. Natural eyeshadow doesn’t mean you need to skimp on color choices or quality, either. In fact, product quality only rises when brands are interested in ethical, eco-friendly ingredients and processes. So whether you’re going for a natural smokey eye (like Lily Lolo’s smoky eye shadow palette) or looking for a cool-toned palette, there are plenty of perfect choices within the world of clean beauty.
Talc is one of the most important ingredients to avoid in eyeshadow formulas. Talc has a high contamination rate with asbestos fibers, which causes it to be toxic when inhaled. Asbestos is a mineral you usually find in close proximity to talc. Even without this contamination, though, talc is still a toxic risk on its own. The eyeshadows featured here are all talc-free and vetted for non-toxicity, so you can be sure you’re avoiding the right ingredients.
