9 Natural Essentials to Add to Your Makeup Bag

Who better to share natural-makeup must-haves than someone who uses them both professionally and personally? Here, hand-picked faves from Colorado makeup artist and licensed aesthetician Beth Walker.

1. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream

None

“My rule of thumb when it comes to products—particularly ones that are going to stay on your skin, like foundation—is that they should be so effective, they act like a treatment for your skin,” says Walker. This is her go-to CC cream because it’s hydrating and protects with SPF 30.

2. Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Illuminating Primer

None

Walker likes to mix equal amounts of these two products when she’s going for less coverage than a CC cream. “I use this combo instead of concealer on blemishes or darkness under the eyes,” she says.

3. W3LL PEOPLE Bio Bronzer Stick

None

Walker’s secret to the no-makeup makeup look: Sweep this bronzer across your cheekbones. Bonus: If you’re using a powder blush, smudge this creamy bronzer underneath to help hold it in place.

4. Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple in Pink Quartz

None

Even if you’re going for a minimalist look, smudging a little eyeshadow on your lids will brighten your eyes—and keep your mascara from migrating. Says Walker: “I use the pad of my ring finger rather than a brush for a more natural look.”

7. Mineral Fusion Waterproof Mineral Mascara

None

Natural mascaras have a reputation for smudging, flaking, and clumping, but this one’s got both oomph and staying power, says Walker.
