6 Celebrities Who Love Natural and Organic Beauty (via Well+Good)

Monday already, hey? Blargh! But before we get back to the grind…

Who watched the Oscars last night? Do you we have any nominees for best dressed and best makeup? I definitely dug Gwyneth Paltrow’s ice queen getup, especially the way it played with her super glowy and natural-looking makeup. Very fresh.

I thought Rooney Mara and Michelle Williams also looked stunning and memorable, and I think Emma Stone took a fashion risk that paid off with that giant bow. All three had the kind of makeup I love too: clean with a pop.

Keeping on the silly celeb thing for a minute, Well+Good has named some big stars who also love their clean beauty. Are any of them future spokespersons for the cause? We sure hope so. (Gwyneth, you so got this one!) Here’s the post:

Celebrities are constantly getting slathered with chemical-heavy makeup and beauty products on set, at photo shoots, and before they hit the runway.
But in their own makeup bags and medicine cabinets, some are super natural, opting for cleaner beauty products and healthier practices.

So who are the six famous natural beauty mavens in our midst? And what are they using? (Hint: Tammy Fender,Priti NYC, and RMS Beauty are celeb faves.) You may have spotted a few of their glowing complexions on the red carpet last night.

Miranda Kerr

Kerr is a verified natural-beauty buff.

The supermodel (and wife of Orlando Bloom) listed New York-based RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek and Priti NYC nail polish in Hula Girl Rose and Red Head Cactus as a few of her top beauty picks in the Australian Sunday Telegraph.

And she created her own organic beauty line, Kora Organics, which is infused with natural nourishers like noni fruit extract and rosehip seed oil.

Kerr also eats fresh, organic producefor a healthy glow, drinks lemon water every morning to detox, and is a dry-brushing devotee.

Jessica Alba

Alba founded Honest.com to provide safe, chemical-free baby products to new moms. So it’s no surprise that she also works toward a clean beauty routine.

Last year, the actress told Allure that she shops for organic beauty products when she can and mixes her own body oil. And she’s a fan of luxe-organic makeup line, Vapour.

Her beauty rules, which she also relayed to Allure, don’t even include products—a sign of her natural intelligence: Try to drink two liters of water a day, eliminate highly processed foods, and get some daily exercise, even if it’s just a half hour.

Alicia Silverstone

Silverstone is a vegan and environmental activist, who also created her own line of cruelty-free, eco-friendly makeup brushes and bags.

What’s in hers? “Josie Maran lip gloss, Eco Bella concealer, Josie Maran eye shadow, Bare Minerals powder, and Tammy Fender epi peel (for scrub),”she told GirlieGirlArmy.com.

She’s also a  fan of Priti NYC nail polish and loves Crazy Rumor’s Hibiskiss Tinted Lip Balms, which are made with organic jojoba, olive oil, and shea butter.

And the celeb often writes about her clean beauty routine on her site,TheKindLife.com.

    I think it’s amazing to hear that these ladies, who’s beauty routines and product picks are often asked for, are part of the clean revolution!!

    Aaannnd Michelle was one of my favorites!!

    Just when I thought the awards season was over . . you guys are killing me.

  4. Leslie says:

    Comagirl, I don’t dig award shows either, but it’s not all about us. The masses need role models that are considered beautiful and of interest, otherwise they’ll just think this stuff is for paranoid weirdo hippy mamas, like me.

  5. Alexandra says:

    @Leslie I totally agree. It’s a bummer but if just one of these celebs actually came out and endorsed clean beauty—and refused to do campaigns for dirty companies—it would be HUGE. That said…
    @Comagirl Fiiiine, it was a bit of a lazy Monday post! Cut a girl some slack! ;)

    It is great that Celebrities spread the word about how great and lovely natural cosmetics are, but why to they all have to develop their own cosmetic brand?!

  7. Mia says:

    Celebs still need a little more education. Natalie Portman who’s a vegetarian and raves in all magazines about how “ultra-pure” Pai moisturizers are, does campaign with Dior, uses their sunscreens (!) and makeup and uses red lipsticks made with carmine (!!). Another “green girl” Julia Roberts, who’s another vegetarian, loves to save water and uses Dr. Hauschka looks uber-photoshopped on Lancome campaigns and uses their makeup. Emma Watson who says that’s “obsessed” with organic skincare and is a supporter of fair trade does campaign with Lancome and uses their makeup removers, Jessica Alba trying to be eco-friendly and using Dermalogica and Revlon, Gwyneth Paltrow another supposed green girl that uses Perricone and for her baby a brand that I can’t remember the name right now that uses phenoxyethanol and cocamidopropyl betaine and some other chemicals, Gisele Bundchen doing campaign for the new “eco-friendly” packaging of Pantene (!!!), and I can keep on. I actually think they do things like this because they still need MUCH more education about why is better to choose natural, it shouldn’t be part of a trend, but they don’t know this, that’s why they do things wrong. Any of us, the real green girls, should be introduced to Hollywood to really teach not only celebs but also people. There’s anybody here that can act or sing? LOL

  8. Mia says:

    Oh, and somebody should say to Alicia Silverstone that Josie Maran uses silicones and other not so pretty stuff in her makeup.

  9. Lucia says:

    …I soooo agree with you Mia.

  10. Rebecca says:

    @Mia, you are so right on about the many conflicts with celebs who talk clean cosmetics. It’s fine for people to make their own choices about what they use, but I think people are misled enough as it is, we don’t need more confusing info from “stars” we admire. I’d like to see more celebrities recommending that people start looking at ingredients for themselves instead of just recommending brands.

  11. Van says:

    Check out Tata Harper ingredients that Gwyneth Paltrow endorses. Alcohols, witch hazel, glycerin. These are not exactly healthy ingredients for your face. Maybe drying out skin will make customers buy more often.

  12. Carlene says:

    Besides gweneth Paltrow is a smoker so that contradicts all the good stuff organic health and eating and beauty she talks about.
