If I had to move to a desert island with only five makeup products I’d probably be bringing along these five. Of all the clean beauty products I’ve been testing out for the past nine months these are the best of the best in their category. They also make up the components of a super low maintenance but impactful everyday five minute face to get you ready and looking a bit more alive and a bit more glowy.
Ere Perez Rice Powder Bronzer. This bronzer was such a welcome addition to my routine. It was the best clean dupe for my previous go-to (the Dallas blush by Benefit). I use it daily to add subtle color and contour to my face shape.
RMS Beauty Pressed Blush in Lost Angel. This.blush!! It is so good. It is essentially a clean version of NARS Orgasm. It has the slightest iridescence to it and is the perfect pink-y pink.
Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara. Not holy grail status for me (I still use my un-clean Stila HUGE mascara too much for my liking) but hands down the best clean mascara I’ve tried thus far. I see why it has won so many awards. Love that it adds volume and length and doesn’t flake off.
Ilia Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment. You can use this pigment on both cheeks and lips but I use it as my go-to cream blush. I layer it under the RMS powder blush for a pretty wash of color that gives my face a radiant glow. Waking Up and Temptation are my favorite shades.
Ilia Brow Gel. This gel is so good for building volume and keeping your brows tamed. The best clean brow product I’ve tried by a mile.
All but the bronzer are available on sale right now as part of the Sephora Sale!
