We know and love The Body Shop for their vegan, cruelty-free bath and body range made with lovely ingredients, which are ethically sourced from all over the world. But The Body Shop also has racks of really nice makeup {tried and tested by this recommender}, which often are multitaskers. From bronzers and lip and cheek stains to clever concealers and even shade-adjusting drops {read below for details}, there are a lot of useful products happening in the makeup department here. While The Body Shop products are not really cheap, these makeup finds are keepers, and they work on all kinds of skin tones. Makeup that’s inclusive? We are in.

Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome

Strobing your new makeup game? Then look no further than the handy Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome. Available in three really wearable shades {that suits most skin tones}, these can be used on the cheeks to create a bronzed look, shimmery effect or even a subtle flush, depending on how intensely you use it. Plus, that nice honey fragrance {they use CommunityFair Trade honey from Ethiopia}.

Price: INR 1,195

Lip And Cheek Stain

This is one of those products that are absolute keepers. The cooling {organic aloe vera from Mexico and fair trade honey} stain can be used as a nice base on your lips and completed with lip gloss on top or even as a base for regular lipstick. It works really well on cheeks to give a natural flushed look and the three shades available in India are red peony, bright pomegranate and pink hibiscus and work well with all skin tones. We give our vote to Pink Hibiscus.

#LBBTip: Best application is through a makeup brush rather than fingers.

Price: INR 995

Smoky 2-In-1 Gel Eyeliner

Shade Adjusting Drops {Lightening or Darkening}

How many of us have applied foundation only to find that it doesn’t really match the tone of our skins exactly? Enter Shade Adjusting Drops {100 per cent veganapparently } to the rescue. Just add to your foundation depending on whether you want to lighten the shade or add a bit of depth. Your foundation could come as close to your skin tone as possible.

And the finish is matte, so it works on both lips and cheeks without making you feel like a shiny, disco ball.
