Green Beauty Foundation Guide

My green beauty foundation guide is officially complete…at least until I try another foundation that I like!  I’ve tried a ton of foundations since going green 7 years ago and I’ve narrowed it down to the products that performed.  After all you shouldn’t have to sacrifice a good foundation when transitioning to green beauty.

I really wanted to give you guys all the tools to make the best decision when choosing a foundation.  I broke it down into easy to read categories, getting specific on skin type even.  Also, all the photos below are taken in the same light, against the same back drop and there is no filter on any of them.  The foundations are on the right side in the photo, the other side has nothing.  I wanted you guys to see the comparison. This is literally what the product looks like on my skin.  I really hope it helps you to find a foundation that works for your skin and love!

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to comment below, or email me- I would love to help you out!

*Also, I even created a free download for you guys on how to achieve flawless foundation application!  I’m sharing my 3 step process to ensure your foundation stays looking good from start to finish.  Plus, all the brushes I use for each foundation.  Download it below!

Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation Stick-

Formula: Comes in a stick form.  It feels like a thicker cream.

How it looks on: It gives a very natural dewy look.

Coverage: It gives light to medium coverage.

Skin type: This foundation is great for those with dry to combination skin. I like applying a finishing powder on top to help set it for the day since it can wear off by the end of the day.

Why I like it: I love how easy it is to use and the buildable coverage you can get with it. You don’t have to worry about anything spilling out since it’s in stick form. A great option for those who want a natural look but with some coverage.  It’s also quick to apply, so good mom option for when you only have 5 minutes to get ready.

Kjaer Weis Foundation-

Formula: Comes in a solid cream compact.  It feels like a solid cream foundation opposed to liquid.

How it looks on: It gives a very covered, more matte look.  This is great for those who like a heavier foundation and full coverage.

Coverage: Medium to full coverage.

Skin Type: This foundation is great for those with oily to combination and even dry if you make sure and apply an oil or moisturizer before application.

Why I like it: I can literally apply this in the morning and still look fresh faced by 7 at night.  It really keeps you looking polished all day long. It’s great for days you need long wear and days you just need more coverage. Snag your Kjaer Weis Foundation here!

Crunchi Foundation-

Formula: This is a liquid foundation and is creamy and moisturizing and comes in a glass container- which I love!

How it looks on: It looks dewy and natural.

Coverage: It offers medium coverage.

Skin Type: Great for all skin types.

Why I like it: This is a great everyday foundation.  It literally glides on the skin and offers good coverage, while still looking like you don’t have a ton of makeup on. It also has a slight hint of vanilla- but not strong at all and not synthetic. It quickly dissipates after a while. Get your Crunchi Foundation here!

ZuZu Luxe Oil Free Liquid Foundation-

Formula: This foundation is a creamy liquid foundation.

How it looks on: It gives your skin a put together look but at the same time doesn’t look overdone or heavy.

Coverage: Provides light to medium coverage depending on how much you apply.

Skin Type: Great for all skin types, but especially those who have oily skin.  Since this is oil free there’s no extra shine to worry about.

Why I like it: This foundation looks good on everyone, is easy to apply and can be found at most Whole Foods or health food stores.  Plus, it’s budget friendly.  A great all around pick! Get your Zuzu Luxe Oil Free Foundation here!

Dusty Girls Earth Cream

Formula:  This is a BB cream. It’s very creamy in texture and comes in a pump bottle.

How it looks on: It looks dewy and natural but gives a pulled together look.

Coverage: Gives light to medium coverage.

Skin type: Great for all skin types, even those with acne.  It has many healing properties that help soothe acne. If you do have oily skin, we recommend using a powder after application to help set it for the day since it is a very creamy formula.

Why I like it: This BB cream is so easy to apply and a great effortless look for everyday wear or in the summer when you want some coverage but don’t want to look overdone.  Get your foundation here!

Root Pretty Pearlized Foundation Powder-

Formula:  This is a loose powder foundation.

How it looks on: It has tiny light reflective pigments in it that help create a pearlized effect on the skin giving your face a glow.

Coverage: Light to medium to full coverage, depending on application. When used with a wet beauty blender the coverage is medium to full.

Skin Type: Any skin type.  If you have dry skin just make sure and apply a moisturizer/oil beforehand, so you don’t have dry patches.

Why I like it: It stays the whole day when we use a damp beauty blender and almost gives us an air brushed look.  It looks dewy compared to other powders we’ve used because of the pearlized light reflective pigments in it.  Get your Root Pretty Powder here!

Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation-

Formula: This feels like a very thin paint, almost like a paint thinner- I know sounds strange but the best way to describe it.  It comes in a glass dropper bottle.

How it looks on: It looks very natural and dewy on.  It will feel like you aren’t wearing foundation at all.

Coverage: It offers light to medium coverage.

Skin Type: This is great for any skin type.  Although it is a liquid it dries more matte. So it’s good for oilier complexions or dry.

Why I like it: It creates such a natural flawless dewy look. You’ll feel like nothing is on your skin. It’s a lit from within glow. Plus, it offers a vitamin for your skin with all it’s nutrients.  Always shake it up as the product can separate naturally.  Get your Gressa Foundation here!

Ilia Vivid Foundation-

Formula: This comes in a pump bottle and feels like a very creamy lotion.

How it looks on: It gives a dewy pulled together look.

Coverage: Light to medium.

Application: We like applying this with our fingers or beauty blender.

Why I like it: This goes on so smooth and is a great foundation to have around for everyday wear.  Your skin will look polished and not cakey. Great for sensitive skin types.  It’s so easy to apply too, feels like a really great tinted moisturizer but with solid coverage. Get your Ilia Foundation here!

Inika BB Cream-

Formula: A very creamy consistency in a pump bottle.

How it looks on: It gives a dewy, natural look to the skin.

Coverage: light

Skin Type: This is great for dry to combination skin types that don’t want a lot of coverage.

Why I like it: Although the formula is too light for me(I like at least a medium coverage foundation) I really like the consistency and the feel of the product.  It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything and the ingredients are great.  If you do like more of a medium to full coverage look you could always spot conceal where you don’t get enough coverage or you could try mixing your concealer with the bb cream.

Honest Beauty Foundation-

Formula: The foundation comes in a cream compact. Feels creamy and then turns to a slight powder feel when finished applying.

How it looks on: It looks matte.

Coverage: Medium to full coverage.

Skin Type: All skin types.

Why I like it: The formula goes on so smooth and creamy and provides such great coverage.  It lasts from in the morning until you take it off at night.  It takes away my redness too.  Plus, it’s a budget friendly pick!  You can snag 3 items from Honest Beauty for $50 if you use their bundling service!  This foundation alone is $30- so that’s a steal.

W3ll People BB Cream-

Formula: Feels creamy and thicker.

How it looks on: Looks natural and dewy.

Coverage: Light to medium.

Skin Type: All skin types.

Why I like it: This is a newer product within the last year for W3ll People.  I like that it offers SPF30, some great protection, yet it doesn’t feel too heavy.  Great for summer, but also if you live somewhere that’s constantly sunny and want sun protection in your foundation on the daily.  I really appreciate that it is a little thicker and offers some decent coverage too.

That sums up my foundation guide.  See anything you want to try?  What’s your go to green beauty foundation?

    great roundup! I haven’t tried crunchi. Any idea what shade I’d be? I love the KW foundation. My favorite everyday is the vapour soft focus liquid foundation. I also like the new antonym liquid foundation.
