A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.

A Natural Beauty

Face it, we L-O-V-E makeup! Ruby red lipstick. Smokey eye shadows. Volume packed mascara. But some of us are a little curious about the contents...even a bit concerned. Reports of toxic ingredients have many women tossing top brands to avoid side effects. What's a gal to do? Eco-friendly/organic/natural products to the rescue. Free of (most) parabens , synthetics, sulfates and artificial ingredients.

Here's a list of goodies to use from your nose to your toes:

ALL OVER BEAUTY: REVOLUTION ORGANICS All Over Body Balm -- the ultimate multi-tasker. Can be used as a makeup primer, hair conditioner, and even relieves chapped lips with organic cocoa butter, Shea butter and apricot oil.

HAIR: BURT'S BEES Very Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner with Pomegranate & Soy -- sulfate-free shampoo is gentle on hair with white soy amino acids to create extra lift. 97.2% natural.

LIPS: TARTE NATURAL Lip Stain -- infused with peppermint to glide over lips and increase moisture by 6000%.

FACE: ORIGINS Nourishing Face Lotion -- restores moisture and softness with weightless butters and organic sunflower oil. A blend of clove, rose, lavender, patchouli and red thyme essential oils protect the purity of the product.

EYES: URBAN DECAY Vegan Palette -- six top selling shadows that just happen to be "all natural."

NAIL: ZOYA Nail Polish -- vegan friendly lacquers in an abundance of creamy, shimmery or metallic colors.

(Thanks to BSBB reader Joey N. for the inquiry...hope this helps!)
