5 Clean Beauty Essentials You Should Keep on You at All Times

These natural products are perfect for touch-ups on-the-go.

If you’re a busy woman on-the-go, you’re probably used to running around throughout the day — from work to the gym to drinks with friends with a few other stops in between. Unfortunately, as the day goes on, your makeup starts to wear off and by dinner time, you’re probably in desperate need of a refresh.

Obviously, carrying around your entire makeup stash everywhere you go is overkill, so you’ll need to edit it down to a few key products. And while this may seem impossible, we’re about to prove to you that you only need a few key makeup essentials for instant touch-ups on the go. These clean beauty products from Australian beauty brand Nude by Nature are enriched with 100 per cent natural ingredients and are cruelty-free and PETA certified.

Check out our fave clean beauty essentials from Nude by Nature, available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart across Canada.

1. Perfecting Concealer

With your busy lifestyle, you’re probably not getting much sleep, resulting in some dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. Luckily, Nude by Nature’s Perfecting Concealer will help you fake a good night’s sleep, even if you’ve barely gotten any Zzzs. Not only will it disguise imperfections and cover dark circles and puffiness, but it is also enriched with FloraEsters that help reduce fine lines and improve skin firmness over time. Plus, it’s crease-free and blends seamlessly, meaning you can easily reapply throughout the day without having to worry about it caking.

2. Touch of Glow Highlight Stick

An easy way to add some life to your beauty look is with Nude by Nature’s Touch of Glow Highlight Stick. This iridescent, sheer multipurpose stick can be applied pretty much everywhere for an instant glow — from your cheekbones to the inner corners of your eyes to your brow bone and your cupid’s bow — and is easy to layer for a more dramatic evening look. It also makes for a great natural eyeshadow or works as an eye primer for more intense pressed shadow or colour.

The Touch of Glow Highlight Stick comes in three versatile shades (Champagne, Rose and Bronze) and features Kakadu Plum, Quandong and Desert Lime to help provide antioxidant defence. And if you can’t choose between the shades, all three are available in a limited-edition mini format just in time for the holidays.

3. Allure Defining Mascara

Think it’s impossible to layer on mascara mid-day? Think again. Nude by Nature’s Allure Defining Mascara has a unique flexible brush and buildable formula that allows you to apply multiple layers without having to worry about it getting dry or flakey. This vitamin-enriched mascara intensifies, lengthens, separates and defines lashes instantly and is enriched with ProVitamin B5 to condition lashes over time. Plus, active ingredients like candelilla wax and acacia gum help repel water and promote smudge resistance, respectively.

If you want an even more defined eye look, pair the Allure Defining Mascara with the Contour Eye Pencil and Limited-Edition Pressed Eyeshadow in Opal — all three are available in a limited-edition kit for the holidays.
