Here in the UK, we have an abundance of talented, in-the-know bloggers and professionals who - like us - want to promote natural beauty, particularly through the wonderful world of organic makeup.
Below we have narrowed down a special list of content creators who we feel are the cream of the crop and who we want to award the title of Odylique’s ‘Best Natural Makeup Bloggers to follow in 2017’.
We’d like to thank our winners for sharing their expertise and being part of the green beauty movement. We hope our readers will enjoy and be inspired by their work, just as we are!
Let’s get started!
First on our list, we had to include friend to Odylique, Louise Dartford. Lou is a makeup artist and advocate of the green beauty lifestyle.
We love Lou’s in-depth blog posts and her gorgeous monthly ‘Instabeauty’ makeup tutorials that have been beautifying our Instagram timelines (and our faces)!
The wonderfully talented Laura-Jane Sessions really deserves a spot on our list. From an early age Laura appreciated organic and natural alternatives. Now, as a makeup artist, she has fully integrated natural makeup into her kit, which we think sends a great message to her clients and other artists in the profession.
Laura’s post on carmine in makeup was particularly interesting and gives an honest reflection on how she feels about the use of the ingredient as a professional, eco-friendly makeup artist. Well worth a read!
Ana, the founder of Ana Goes Green, keeps us entranced with the makeup section on her blog. We really liked her ‘Five Minute Makeup Look’ which is made up of entirely natural and organic products. The combination of her beautiful photography and trusted recommendations means that we never go too much time without checking for more of her latest content.
Sara Steele is an organic hair stylist whose fun and relatable content is certainly worth a read. Whether it’s to have a peek at what she’s ordered from LoveLula in her ‘LoveLula Monthly Box’ blog posts, or to browse her organic lipstick suggestions, Sara is one of our top picks.
Freelance writer and illustrator, Tamara, blogs about her organic lifestyle. We are excited to see someone who has a makeup bag packed with entirely natural makeup!
If you want help with making the switch, Tamara is your girl!
All Natural Aspirations is a very pretty website run by Rachel, a green beauty and lifestyle blogger. After having a little girl, Rachel was encouraged to switch to a more organic way of living. We love her makeup reviews and her ‘Ingredients to avoid’ list, which informs her readers on what to look out for on product labels.
The muti-talented Linda Öhrström advocates the use of sustainable, organic beauty wherever she works – which happens to be in a multitude of places!
Linda is the editor of Women’s Health Sweden and a writer, editor and makeup artist for VoltCafe. Voltcafe is an ethically produced magazine featuring high-fashion editorials, where Linda only uses natural products on the models.
We loved Linda’s makeup artistry on their ‘Rah! Rah! Replica’ campaign (photographed above). As you can see, she used natural makeup for a range of bright and bold looks. Daring pops of colour aren’t always something you associate with green beauty, which is exactly why we love it!
Suffice to say, we were very impressed with the results and had to mention Linda for breaking natural beauty barriers!
Beauty enthusiast Evelyn tantalises our senses by writing about green beauty and delicious recipes. Her incredibly valuable natural makeup reviews and ‘monthly favourites’ posts help guide us before we make a purchase, so for that alone we have to thank her!
Sabrina and Mayah - the ladies of Call It Vanity - make YouTube videos and blog posts around organic beauty and how to go green. They pride themselves on buying-and-trying products so that you don’t have to. The makeup archive on their blog is the perfect place to pick up natural beauty tips and recommendations. Remember to check out their ‘Green Beauty Makeover’ video which would be a great for those searching for a Christmas makeup tutorial!
The inspirational Liz from Well Meaning Being blogs about making the switch to natural, cruelty-free skincare and which alternatives to synthetic products we should be using.
Liz is also taking part in ‘Project Pan’ where, instead of buying new makeup products, she had to use up all of her existing products. Will you join her for a more eco-friendly 2017?
So there you have it!
