Whether you’re going for a sultry smoky eye, winged liner or just plain old kajal, no look is complete without eye makeup. But wait a minute, the chemicals in these products can’t possibly be good for skin let alone your delicate eyes. That’s where herbal eye makeup comes into the picture. These babies are affordable, suitable for all skin types and packed with natural ingredients.
Here are our favorite kajals, eyeliners and mascaras that we think should go in every makeup kit:
Made in the traditional Ayurvedic manner, this soothing eye liner is infused with the goodness of Sesame Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and the extracts of Eclipta Alba, Indian Gooseberry and Berberis Aristata. Not only is this kajal long-lasting, but it’s also nourishing to the eye area. If you want to go for that extra smolder, this kajal is just what you’re looking for.
Using five diverse ingredients – Damask Rose, Triphala, Almond Oil, Castor Oil and Camphor Oil – this herbal kajal comes with a plethora of amazing properties. From nourishing your lashes to acting as an anti-aging agent for your lids, from reducing inflammation and redness to cooling your eyes, each ingredient works wonders to make your eyes brighter. Who knew a kajal could bring that twinkle to your eye?
This kohl eyeliner from Ruby’s Organics, designed to moisturize and nourish your sensitive eye areas, is dual-ended with the eyeliner pencil on one side and a sponge on the other. Use the sponge to blend, shape or smudge the eyeliner for a more defined eye look. Long-lasting, smudge-proof and richly pigmented, the liner is made exclusively from carbonized vegetable material. It doesn’t get more herbal than this.
With an ultra-fine, soft applicator that draws the most precise line and its water-resistant, quick-drying formula, this eyeliner is perfect for that effortless look that lasts all day. Since it’s paraben-free, it prevents irritation and is suitable for sensitive eyes. If you wear contact lenses, this one is a must-own. You can thank us later.
If you’re on the hunt for a waterproof, volume-building and herbal mascara, look no further. Lotus brings you just what you need to make your lashes look fuller while still protecting them. Enriched with the botanical extracts of Symphytum Officinale and Anugustifolia, this mascara comes with a unique brush that makes sure you coat your smaller eyelashes too. Flutter away!
SoulTree’s mascara comes with the goodness of Castor Oil that hydrates and strengthens, Blackseed Oil that promotes growth, and Organic Tea Leaves that darken lashes. Starting at the roots, apply the mascara on both the upper and lower lashes, let it dry and then reapply for bolder, more defined lashes. It’s the perfect Ayurvedic mascara to nourish and beautify your lashes.
