Gluten Free Make-UP

Being gluten free doesn’t stop at what you eat, it can include what is put on your skin as well; And that is the case for me, its not a trend, its an allergy!  My consumption or exposure to gluten comes at a high price, it can cause my throat to swell, itching, and even cause sever break out. In other words its a problem!  Until I became gluten intolerant I didn’t realize makeup, even some lotions, contain gluten (wheat).  Yes make-up!! Once I became aware that wheat can be found in make-up I went on a make-up hunt, as I am always down for a bomb beat.  

The gluten sensitive brand, that happens to be vegan, that I have fallen in love with is Hourglass.  It is easy to apply, has an incredible natural finish, doesn’t cause me to look oily after long time wear and doesn’t cause me to break out AKA my winner.  Although I found my go to brand quickly, I still did further research in case I work with a makeup artist who needed additional options.  

Too Faced Cosmetics’ entire line except for their Borderline Lip Pencil is gluten free.  Although I haven’t used their foundation, their eye shadows and Melted Gold Liquified Gold lip gloss, is to die for. Another gluten free line is Afterglow Cosmetics.  Their products are produced in a gluten-free facility and are gluten free certified. I’m also extremely interested in Sweat Cosmetics, it is a line specifically formulated for active women and also gluten free and vegan.  Lastly, Rihanna’s line Fenty beauty does not use gluten in their products.  Which is awesome, I haven’t tried it yet, however I’m eager to try the eye catching highlighter Trophy wife... need I say more!!

During my search I was happy to discover there are a number of gluten free make-up lines.  I must admit when I began my search I had NO IDEA what  I was going to find ;-)!

If you know other gluten lines DM me on IG @mackenziesjourney, or leave a comment below… I’m always interested in what else is out there!
