5 Cruelty-Free, All-Natural Makeup Products to Light Up Your Holiday Party Look

The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time to bring on the baking, shopping, Mariah Carey carols, and the decorations. But your tree doesn’t have to be the only thing that lights up a room. With these five all-natural cosmetics you can also get glowing—all formulated without chemicals or parabens, or other potential irritants.

From a paraben-free eyeshadow trio to a cruelty-free punch-red matte lipstick, here’s everything you need to treat yourself to a new holiday look that will work well into the new year, too.

Mineral Fusion Espresso Gold Eyeshadow Trio

Hypoallergenic, gluten-free, 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, talc-free, phthalate-free, and free of artificial colors
Your eyelids will be good as gold with Mineral Fusion’s palette of super-pigmented shadows. Featuring blendable shades including matte beige, rich chocolate, and shimmering gold, contouring is a cinch to get the perfect party look, day or night. Inside are nourishing ingredients like white and red tea and sea kelp, which help soothe and hydrate the sensitive skin around the eyes.

Mineral Hygienics In the Redzone Natural Lipstick

Cruelty-free, no artificial ingredients
Get ready for the mistletoe with this stunning cranberry-red lipstick from Mineral Hygienics. The all-natural brand makes clean cosmetics that are actually good for your skin, drawing on a short list of gentle, moisturizing ingredients like vitamin E, castor vegetable seed oil, and lanolin oil. The result here is a vibrant lip color that won’t crease or fade. The matte finish just might become your best accessory.

Mineral Hygienics Fig Automatic Eyeliner

Cruelty-free, no artificial ingredients
Figs add a pop of dramatic color to any holiday cheese plate; the same can be said of this bold eyeliner that takes its hue from the seasonal fruit. The antioxidant-enriched formula has a smooth texture that glides on seamlessly and is easy to blend, especially with the convenient sponge tip. It’s also waterproof so it won’t smudge or run, yet it’s gentle enough for both your lashline and waterline.

ncLA Clear the Runway Nail Lacquer

Cruelty-free, 100% vegan, free of formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor
Nail your nail look this holiday season with a deep burgundy polish that goes with anything—cocktail dresses, your favorite jeans and a cozy sweater, or your Sunday brunch best. According to one reviewer, the “color goes on really smooth, and the brush is nice because it is thick and flat, which allows for an even [application].”

No Miss Cosmetics Black Diamond Liquid Eyeliner

Cruelty-free, fragrance-free, no artificial ingredients
When you bring out your pearls and fine jewelry for the holidays, don’t forget the diamonds (in eyeliner form). This one has a fine-tipped brush creating super-precise lines and cat-eye looks that won’t smudge or fade. And because it’s made with herbal extracts and moisturizers like aloe and vitamin E—and without any fragrances or chemicals—it’s safe and non-irritating for those with sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
