I have never met a woman, whom at some point in their life, hasn’t worn mascara. It is one of the best and easiest makeup products to transform your look completely. An instant “fully awake” look from a few simple swipes. And before my beauty awakening, I was only looking for “lengthening” and “thickening” products. Never dreaming that the mascara I loved could have a severe impact on my eye site. Crazy, huh? But throwing out your tube of chemicals does not mean you are going to look like you are back in 5th grade. There are some amazing mascaras out there, and today I am going to share with you my 5 favorite clean and green mascaras!
Get The Gunk Out
So you may be thinking “it can’t be that bad” or you think “they wouldn’t sell it if it were harmful.” But, unfortunately, that’s just not true. Check out my 10 Worst Beauty Ingredients to get the full scoop. And mascara isn’t exempt. Traditional mascaras are full of parabens, dioxane, petroleum bi-products, phthalates, iron-oxides, and more. These ingredients are terrible, can cause cancer, have hormonal implications, and can cause severe rashes and allergies to form. And you are putting them RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR EYES! I don’t know about you, but the gift of sight is definitely in my top three favorite things I possess. So if you wouldn’t rub coal or formaldehyde in your eyes, then you probably shouldn’t use a chemically loaded mascara.
Natural Mascaras Are Amazing
Natural mascaras have come a long way from their original conceptions. There are tons of companies developing formulas that are good for you, your eyes, and the planet that totally works! I have tried dozens and compiled for you my 5 favorite clean and green mascaras. These mascaras use plants and fruits to achieve their color, have healthy vitamins and oils in them, and can improve the overall quality of your lashes! And in general, I have noticed my eyes aren’t as irritated when wearing makeup (I was that eye rub girl) and my lashes look fuller naturally. So let’s get started!

Talk about high glam! I love the brush on this mascara. It really separates and lengthens your lashes giving you a bold effect! Perfect for those special nights out.
Best Budget Friendly Mascara
Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Lash Boosting Mascara
This is an amazing clean and green mascara for under $10! I loved the bold look I got and it is easy to reapply midday to have it stay all day. Easily reminds me of my old favorite pink and green bottle. You know what I’m talking about!
Best Natural Girl Mascara

This is the perfect mascara for those who don’t want to look like they are wearing mascara. It lightly coats your lashes to give them a natural pop without trying too hard and is very budget friendly. BONUS: It’s waterproof!
