As a follow up to the 13 clean skincare products under $35 post I published last year, I put together a similar list of 12 clean makeup products. All but one is under $35 and several are in the $20-$25 price range.
I didn’t make the switch to clean beauty all at once. As I ran out of products, I purchased cleaner, safer alternatives. That way it didn’t feel as big of a commitment or hit to my wallet because cleaner products do typically cost more.
You may notice an overlap because the products in this list and those in the What’s in My Makeup Bag post from a few weeks ago. And that’s because I use and love many of these!
12 Clean Makeup Products Under $35
ONE // ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer ($30): Easy to apply and doesn’t dry out my undereye area.
TWO // Lily Lolo Pressed Mineral Blush ($20): I love the slight glow this mineral blush gives my cheeks. It has the perfect amount of shimmer.
THREE // ILIA Tinted Lip Conditioner ($28): Admittedly, I rarely wear lipstick, but when I do it’s this lip conditioner in Nobody’s Baby.
FOUR // Kari Gran Tinted Lip Whip ($20): I rave about this “chapstick” so often you’re probably tired of hearing about it, but it lives up to my hype. I always have at least one Radiant on hand (it looks much brighter in the pot than on).
FIVE // Beautycounter Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer ($42): Technically this tinted moisturizer is slightly more than $35, but I couldn’t find a clean option in that price range. I apply with a sponge for the lightest coverage.
SIX // W3LL People Mineral Foundation ($25): If you prefer a powder foundation, this one gets great reviews.
SEVEN // ILIA Lip Gloss ($24): This lip gloss in Peek a Boo looks good on every single person that’s tried it.
EIGHT // Cote Nail Polish ($18): This is the best nail polish I’ve ever used. I recently went 9 days of an at home manicure without a single chip. It is also free of these ingredients often associated with nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, and gluten.
NINE // Beautycounter Brilliant Brow Gel ($24): I like to use a brow gel instead of a pencil. This clean version from Beautycounter is like Glossier Boy Brow, but better!
TEN // Alima Pure Bronzer ($24): There are times when you need an extra oomph of color.
ELEVEN // ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara ($28): Every clean mascara I’ve tried hasn’t cut it. ILIA limitless lash mascara gets rave reviews even when compared to it’s chemical laden counterparts.
TWELVE // Lily Lolo Laid Bare Eye Palette ($34): This palette includes 8 colors for every day or a night out. You know, if you can do a smoky eye. This is not me.
I hope you find this list of 12 clean makeup products helpful!
