We know our lük women already glow from the inside out and that sometimes you want just a little extra radiance – so do it the natural way with our guide to 5 top natural makeup brands.
1. LUK LIP NOURISH – of course!
We are 100% natural lipstick made from superfoods. We have seven shades which are gently flavoured with cold pressed citrus and spice oils to give your lips a gorgeous sheer colour whilst nourishing and deeply moisturising them. We have a shade for everyone, click here to find out which one suits you best!
This year we’ll be developing more food-grade makeup but with organic, raw, vegan ingredients, so stay tuned!
2. ERE PEREZ
This is one of my personal favourites. They are an Australian owned company that produce natural make up from quality ingredients including organic oils, plant extracts and minerals that are gentle on the skin and packed full of antioxidants. With no animal testing and very reasonable prices, Ere Perez is at the top of our list.
My skin is super sensitive so it’s hard to find a foundation that won’t react with my skin or cause a break out but their oat milk liquid foundation is very gentle and has great coverage. Also, their award winning glossy black almond oil mascara, stays on for hours and never clumps! (But it does smudge quite easily when you first apply it, so give it a little time to ‘set’)
3. 100% PURE
Is huge in the US and they are starting to make a name for themselves here in Aus. Their range of cosmetics and skin care is vegan, gluten free and made from 100% natural & organic ingredients plus they are one of the most affordable natural brands around.
I also personally love their passion for cruelty free products. None of their products are tested on animals at any stage and even their make-up brushes are made from high quality synthetic fibres instead of animal fur!
My favourite product is their 100% natural, 100% vegetarian black tea mascara, which is coloured with black tea and berry pigments. It thickens and lengthens my lashes and are slightly more water and smudge resistant than Ere Perez’s almond oil mascara.
Our own Cindy Luken is big fan of their fruit pigmented lip cream sticks, that look gorgeous under any of our Lip Nourish. They are coloured with fruit and vegetable pigments instead of minerals and dyes. I love that these ‘lip liners’ don’t dry out my lips or leave a waxy finish.

From Germany, Lavera has a great range of organic cosmetics, mineral make up and self tanners made specifically for those with sensitive and allergy based skin. From ‘glow powders’ and liquid foundation to volumising mascara and award winning eyeliner, you will have no trouble finding a number of products to suit your colouring and skin type. They also have a number of gluten free and vegan products available.
But the Lavera favourite has got to be their 6-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream, a global best seller. It gives the skin a gorgeous dewy look (which I love as I have quite dry skin) whilst providing good, light coverage. The best part – it’s made from organic acai berry which moisturises the skin and is full of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants.
My other favourite from Lavera is their beautifully gentle, vegan eye make remover.

My favourite thing about RMS is the fact their philosophy is not just about making great organic make up but is also to create products that actually heal and nourish your skin. All their products are formulated with raw, food grade organic ingredients full of living enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants. They are also free of all toxins, synthetic preservatives, damaging chemicals and are gluten, GMO and soy free. WOW. Many of their products use coconut oil as a base.
We love their gorgeous lip2cheek balm. It comes in six different shades from sheer coral to ‘true’ red and gives a gorgeous natural colour that can be applied to both lips and cheeks. My favourite is the ‘promise’ shade which is salmon-pink with a really subtle shimmer. It gives my cheeks a really nice ‘warm’ tint and is the perfect handbag accessory so you never get caught out!
Now, although I have not personally tried the RMS’ ‘living luminizer’ I could not miss giving it a mention as I have heard so many good things about it and it is their BIGGEST seller. It’s described as ‘ultra sheer’ with a ‘stain pearl finish’ that highlights the skin and creates a natural ‘luminous glow’ without being sticky or greasy. This is one is definitely on my list.
We hope you love these natural make-up brands as much as we do!
