I have a confession to make: it took me weeks to pull together this list because I didn't know very much about natural, organic eyeshadows. I had to research eyeshadows that are good for you AND the environment and I only wanted to feature ones that get rave reviews because there's simply nothing more annoying than spending a lot of money on eyeshadow only to apply it and realize that it hardly shows up on your lid.
What I learned about natural eyeshadows is this: mineral makeup is king. Mineral makeup is largely made up of purely natural ingredients including titanium oxide, zinc oxides, iron oxides and mica. Unlike non-organic shadows which contain very few naturally occurring ingredients and a lot of preservatives that aren't good for you, mineral makeup has been around for hundreds of years and is safe and good for you and the environment.
This list also includes wonderful eyeshadow primers and a wonderful illuminator (use it to wake up eyes).
