Some of us wear eyeshadow only on special occasions and others wear it practically every day. No matter how often or how seldom you wear it, you probably have a palette or two in your makeup bag.
I’m more the special occasion type, but I always like to have a nice palette with natural-looking shades ready to use for when the time comes when I want to dress up my eyes and add a dramatic effect.
Brands are starting to look into providing products with fewer chemicals and toxic ingredients. This comes from the high demand that we, as consumers, are putting on these companies. If you’re like me, as I get older I want to know what I’m putting on my skin, in my body, and in the environment. I also find it important to know if the company does any animal testing.
New beauty brands are coming onto the market marketing their products 100% natural, Certified Organic, or vegan. It’s never been easier to be kind to our skin, to animals, and to the environment.
We’ve rounded up our favorite natural eyeshadow palettes that are perfect for older women.
