A Touch of Color

9 Healthy Makeup Options

Tata Harper Balm

Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint 

Tata Harper

We love the little glass pot and the creaminess of this lip and cheek tint. A little dab will do you when you’re in the mood for a touch of color. Apply with fingertips; comes in six shades from Very Nice to Very Vivacious. $36.

Juice Beauty

Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara 

Juice Beauty

Made with 60 percent certified organic ingredients, this really is as good as it gets when it comes to natural mascara. $22.

Phyts Concealer

Under Eye Concealer 


A gentle, non-cakey concealer for the delicate eye area, this one is formulated with horse chestnut (to decongest and aid in circulation), sunflower seed oil, and bamboo stem extract to help tired eyes. $25.


Certified Organic Baked Blush 


A favorite find, these highly pigmented blushes (which have been baked in terra-cotta pans) come in beautiful bamboo compacts. Available in Peach, Rose, and Copper, this noteworthy line is ECOCERT organic. $36.

W3Ll People

Nudist Colorbalm 

W3ll People

We discovered this natural makeup line when it launched years ago, and have watched it flourish. This is a good intro product, whimsically described as “the love child of a lipstick and a lip balm.” Comes in eight colors from Clear Neutral to Poppy. $13.99.




This multitasker comes in a collection of six shades ranging from Tenderly, a pale pink, to A Fine Romance, a rich berry shade. Apply to lips, cheeks, and eyelids for a sheer, subtle swipe of color. $34.


Japanese Beauty Papers 


Simply pat these blotting sheets (use both sides) on cheeks, forehead, or chin to naturally absorb excess oil. $12.


Red My Lips 

Mahalo Skin Care

The first cosmetic from this Hawaii-based skincare company is a bold red matte lip color that comes in a pretty bamboo mirrored compact with an excellent lip brush for precise application. Twenty percent of the profit is donated to the Red My Lips cause, which aims to raise awareness about sexual violence. $45.

Spa Ritual

Lip Gloss 

Spa Ritual

With a dozen pretty colors to choose from, this gloss is a nice option if you prefer a touch of moisturizing color without a lot of shine. We like Ray of Light, a peachy shimmer. $19.
