The Nude by Nature brand is dedicated to providing makeup products that are cruelty free, natural, and contain as few preservatives and synthetic ingredients as possible. Started in Sydney in 2008, it's been providing high quality makeup to Australia and the world ever since. This brand is a good choice for vegetarians and vegans, as well as for people who have sensitive skin or find that they can't tolerate mineral oils or artificial scents. While a lot of cosmetic brands include both in their products, Nude by Nature specifically avoid both, creating products that are low in allergens and less likely to cause skin irritation.
Nude by Nature Makeup Products
Nude by Nature's makeup range started out pretty small - just some foundations and contour tools. Now, though, it's a different story. The brand now produces a dizzying range of foundations, BB creams, concealers, primers, blushes, bronzers, setting powders, lip liners, lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, eye liners, and mascaras. It also offers a selection of synthetic bristle brushes for applying all of those, suitable for vegans.
Nude by Nature Face Makeup
This brand's Natural Mineral Cover foundation collection is its oldest range of foundations, and is still very popular. It's made with jojoba and kaolin clay, providing a fine coverage with SPF 15 protection from the sun's harsh rays. It evens out your complexion, removes redness and small imperfections, and doesn't dry out the skin. However, if you're a fan of liquid foundations, Nude by Nature can certainly deliver these too. There are some gorgeous blushes, highlighters and contour palettes to help you add depth and colour to your face. Primers and setting sprays or powders are two makeup products often neglected, but they can make a huge difference to the longevity of your facial makeup. Primer helps to give your foundation the best possible base to cling to, while setting powders lock in your look to keep you smudge free and looking brilliant all day long.
Nude by Nature Eye Makeup
With a big range of shades taken from nature itself, Nude by Nature's eye makeup collection gives you the means to create eye looks that vary from casual and relaxed to dark and dramatic. Its eye primers help to prepare the skin around your eyes for the makeup to come, increasing the length of time that it will "stick'. Mascaras condition, lengthen, and thicken your eyelashes, making them more noticeable and giving them better definition. Eye liners make your eyes look bigger and stand out more, and eye shadows give extra depth and drama to your eyelids. Bold or demure shades can bring out the colours in your eyes and give them new brightness or clarity.

As well as brand new cosmetics, you'll also find a selection of discontinued sets that are hard to find these days. This brand makes some great kits that are a good introduction to the brand and provide full coverage, so it's well worth a browse to find one that best fits your personality and unique look.
Nude by Nature Makeup Tools and Accessories
Nude by Nature has created a selection of makeup brushes to suit any need. The brand offers a mineral brush for use in applying its iconic mineral foundation; a liquid foundation brush, for applying liquid mineral foundations and liquid foundations; concealer brushes for hiding or camouflaging imperfections like dark eye circles or pimples; BB cream brushes for applying BB and CC creams and tinted sunscreens; contour brushes for applying highlighter and skin correction powders; perfecting brushes for applying an airbrush style effect to large areas of the face; kabuki brushes for creating an overall polished look; pointed brushes for precision contouring work; and finishing brushes for adding setting powder to complete your look.
The brand also creates a selection of eye shadow, eye liner, shadow blending, and smudging brushes to help you get your eye art looking just right. If you need more than one brush, check out the brush kits - always popular, and a great choice for a gift too. All of Nude by Nature's brushes are made with synthetic brush fibres; the brand doesn't use animal products in its brushes. If you're finding that you're a little dazzled by the range and diversity of brush offerings, look for some basics: a wide foundation brush, an angled brush for more delicate work, a simple eye shadow brush, and a kabuki or finishing brush. Those will meet the vast majority of your makeup application needs.
While not all Nude by Nature products are 100% vegan, the brand does make an effort to ensure that it always includes some vegan products in its line up. These products aren't just not tested on animals; they also don't contain any animal products or by-products. Vegan-friendly Nude by Nature products include the mineral foundations, brushes, and some of the contouring and eye shadow palettes.
While Nude by Nature products aren't certified as gluten free, the brand doesn't add gluten containing ingredients like wheat or barley to its products. Potential manufacturing contaminants exist, so the brand doesn't declare its products universally safe for coeliacs and other people with wheat and gluten intolerances, but most people find them acceptable to use and don't suffer from any reactions. If in doubt, the brand recommends that you test a small amount on a single patch of skin for 48 hours before using the product more widely. This should tell you whether you're likely to have a reaction to the specific product.
