The Best Sustainable Makeup Products to Try This 2024

Makeup plays a significant role in how we represent ourselves. Glowy, luminous complexion to smokey, dark eye looks. Whether you wear makeup as an everyday look or save for special occasions, it is vital to be knowledgeable about what your money is going to and how these products impact our environment. Each year, billions of units of trash composed of plastic and paper end up in landfills. Most of which can be traced back to the various beauty brands we use daily. Aside from these products being an environmental hazard, the ingredients play a major role in our health. Mica and various oils derived from synthetic sources over time, can affect you on the inside and out, as well as being sourced unethically by child labor throughout the globe. Both of which are commonly found in your favorite products. All of this is just a glimpse of how the beauty industry directly affects our planet, but what are we able to do to make better choices in terms of cosmetics? We have composed a list of not only top-rated sustainable products, but our consumers’ favorites. Mascara, glosses, and so much more to explore.
