Plant Makeup is unique artisanal apothecary formulated skincare handmade with 100% natural ingredients. Roses, flowers, roots, berries and herbs - everything created is inspired by a natural flow of energy to just be the natural you.

My plant based makeup is a bit different then regular makeup. It applies less pigmented on the skin compared to synthetic dyes or iron oxide derived colors. i made plant pigmented paints early on when i started studying plants and this totally inspired the creation of plant makeup. Plant based paints are lighter gentler paints compared to deep colored conventional paints. Plant pigmented makeup is totally a new thing as they provide light natural hues of color then dramatic bold color stains. A compromise to the modern - or new way of beauty!

The photo above is one of the first i took of Plant Makeup when i was conceptualizing the idea in 2014.

Check out this blurb from my early about pages (c.2015):

By 2016 i had a mega skin care makeup line. But it didn't start here...

The journey first began in 2004 where i felt a true connection with plants in a medicinal herb greenhouse. i started making a line of herbal teas and slowly evolved to making a variety of beauty products and botanical fragrances. i started an Etsy shop in 2008 and everything evolved within and from there. This is plantmakeup.com 5.0 - a site inspired by ancient beauty secrets using plant based dyes.
