My picks for eco-friendly paraben-free make up for summer

My picks, for you folks who preffer natural products, or atleast paraben free products, while maintaining a perfect look under the sun and humid summer conditions.

Here we go:

For primer, i like Smashbox Photofinish Light, its paraben free and fragance free. Suits very sensitive skin types, and controls oil production. It feels soft on the touch, but doesnt contain sillicones:

For foundation, on summer, i would pick a tinted moisturizer, but not the sheerest one, so my pick is on Tarte Smooth operator. Again, paraben free, and suited for sensitive skins. Comes in a very wide range of shades and undertones, something not typical with tinted moisturizers:

For concealer, i did pick Amazing cosmetics concealer. Its waterproof, and paraben free:

The powder i did like, was the new Bare Escentuals bare minerals SPF 30 sunscreen mineral powder. It acts as your sunscreen and setting powder, so its very good. And actually you can apply it every 1-2 hrs, since it comes with a brush, and it wont alter your make up. Not like applying cream sunscreen on top of your make up. This will keep shine at bay, while giving you the much needed spf in summer:

For bronzer/highlighter/blush, i picked a multitasking product. Depending on your skin tone, i have a recommendation or another. For normal to tan skin, i recommend Smashbox fusion soft lights, for fair skin tones, i do recommend Cargo Plant love Baked illuminator:

You will ofcourse, need some blotting powders, if you have very oily skin, so i did choose an eco friendly and relatively cheap ($10) Boscia blotting linens:

And oh my could i forget....Mascara!!! I picked my all time favorit, but in a waterproof version. As you know, this is paraben free, and many other things free lol. Tarte, Lights, Camera, Splashes waterproof mascara:

And finally...for lips. I was a bit undecided on this one, but finally i went for something thats a hybrid between a lip balm, an spf and a lip tint. And i found it! Juice beauty lip balm spf 8, its actually a lip tint, moisturizing and spf!!! comes in a variety of colors, and Juice beauty is known for its organic eco friendly products!, so now you can have nice lips even on the pool!:
