It can be a challenging task to find real, organic eye shadows that are perfect for you and the environment. This also involves discovering eye shadows that are not tested on animals and do not have negative feedback.
One thing to remember when shopping for natural eye shadows is this: the king is the mineral makeup. Mineral composition is mainly made up of pure natural materials, including titanium oxide, zinc oxides, iron oxides and mica. In non-organic colors that contain a few natural ingredients and a lot of preservatives that are not good for you, mineral makeup has been around for hundreds of years and is healthy and good for you and the world.
The following list features a number of tried and tested organic eye shadows, as well as several great eye shadow primers and an illuminator that can be used to wake up the eyes.
PYT Beauty No BS Eyeshadow Palette
For a mixture of glimmer and matte finishes, the PYT Beauty No BS Eyeshadow Palette complies with our organic eye shadow requirements. With eight shades to choose from, this palette is ideal for creating a relaxed, sexy, natural look.
We love how long the product lasts: from day to night, you hardly note a budge, so you’ll be able to find the perfect shade for whatever time of day you’re going to be out and about. The palette fits comfortably into the hand and holds a mirror inside. The darker shades rest right on the opacity meter, and the more neutral shades can be built up or made more translucent without a hassle.
Aether Beauty Eyeshadow Palettes
Creative and innovative, huh? Looking for an organic eye shadow palette that doesn’t compromise your artistic license? Aether Beauty has three eyeshadow palettes, with twelve colors per palette, for those of you who want to live a little more vibrant.
The Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette contains warm neutral tones with a combination of matte, shimmering and metallic finishes. The Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette provides a mixture of cool and warm tones — like gold, moss, and coral — in shimmering and metallic finishes. Last but not least, the Summer Solstice Palette is a romantic medley of reds, pinks and neutrals.
Lily Lolo Eyeshadow Palettes
The Lily Lolo Eyeshadow Palettes are a mixture of timeless shades that produce bright, classic looks — think smoky cat eye — or can be used simply to highlight your features in a subtle way. Because all three palettes are made with jojoba, pomegranate and argan seed oils, you don’t need to worry about making any contact with harsh chemicals or poisonous ingredients.
The names of the palettes are very much in line with their best objectives: the Laid Bare palette for a more natural look; the Pedal to the Medal palette for a shimmering night look; and the Smoke & Mirrors palette for a day-to-night look that has a good contrast.
Ere Perez Chamomile Eyeshadow Palettes
As the name suggests, the Ere Perez Chamomile Eyeshadow Palettes are made with a smooth, soothing chamomile to replenish the skin around the eyes. This is one reason to love these palettes; another is because of their flattering, enlivening choice of shades.
Both palettes are compromised by Amazing, Pretty, Lovely, and Gorgeous. For dark brown tones, we’re proposing to go for the earthy Beautiful. Beautiful often has brown tones, but they contain lighter neutrals. Pink and purple colors can be found in Lovely; and you’ll find lighter, more opaque neutral shades in Pretty.
