Switching Over To Green Beauty? Here's The Makeup To Get

Yes, we mean makeup — not skincare products.

When it comes to making the switch over to green beauty, it is not just your skincare stash that requires an overhaul. Your makeup collection needs one too. Whether you are looking for new green makeup (we don’t mean the colour) to try, or to add to your current collection, here’s an edit of our latest picks.

#1: Chantecaille Polar Ice Eye Palette, $163
Made up of nine different cool-toned shimmer shades, each can be used on its own or layered over an existing colour for a gorgeous glowing sheen and shimmer to your lids. The colours in the palette are inspired by the galactic night sky of the Arctic and gives off three different finishes: holographic, metallic and radiant. #2: RMS Beauty Luminizer in Champagne Rose, US$39,39, from Net-a-Porter
Applied on the cheekbones, nose bridge, inner corner of your eyes or brow bones, this versatile and multi-use cream highlighter imparts a luminous glow to the skin. It is formulated with light-catching minerals, and has a creamy, blendable texture that glides on easily and feels like nothing. It even contains rosemary, coconut and castor seed oils to purify, nourish and hydrate skin. #3: Kjaer Weis Mascara, approx. US$36.12, from Net-a-Porter
The sleek rubberised wand of this mascara has widely spread-out bristles to prevent clumps from forming. The long-lasting, lash-lengthening formula doesn’t smudge or budge throughout the day, and it is made with all-natural ingredients like jojoba seed and rosa damascena flower oil to nourish eyelashes too. #4: Sappho New Paradigm Liquid Foundation, $46.50
This weightless liquid foundation comes in 12 different shades and gives medium to full coverage. It is even saturated with antioxidants, flavonoids and phytonutrients to protect and condition the skin to improve its overall condition.
With an emollient, balmy texture, this melts into skin to deliver a radiant, luminous sheen. It also gives an extra boost of hydration thanks to a combination of oils. The best part? It is lightweight and absorbed into skin almost instantly upon application without leaving a greasy or sticky afterfeel. #6: Ilia Multi-Stick in At Last, US$34.22, Net-a-Porter
We love multi-purpose makeup. So of course, there’s no way we could skip out on this multi-use stick, which can be applied as a blusher, highlighter, lipstick and even eyeshadow, depending on the shade you pick. This natural dusty rose shade is the perfect go-to colour to add a dash of healthy colour to your lips and it can even double as a blusher. Plus, it contains vitamin E and shea butter to protect and hydrate skin too. #7: Inika Organic Certified Organic Vegan Lipstick, $39
Thanks to a blend of hydrating ingredients like avocado, jojoba and argan oils, this helps to soften puckers. The lipstick also has a satin finish with high colour payoff with a single swipe. It is also enriched with shea butter to leave lips feeling smooth and supple while having superior staying power.
