Gluten-free makeup products are earning crowd appeal among those with gluten sensitivities.

By Afton Jones

Maybe you haven’t heard of gluten-free makeup, but it’s becoming a more common clarification and selling point on certain makeup packages lining store shelves. Why? Isn’t it odd for gluten to be in makeup? It actually isn’t. There is gluten and gluten-derived ingredients in a great deal of makeup. For many people sensitive to gluten, such as those who have celiac disease or are gluten-intolerant, they are not just internally sensitive, but also may be topically sensitive. If you avoid putting gluten {in} your body, sometimes it helps to avoid putting it {on} your body too. With this revelation in mind, we rounded up five of our favorite gluten-free makeup picks.

FOUNDATION: Omiana Creamy Matte Intense Coverage Foundation Pot, $38,
With a rich, moisturizing formula that isn’t too thick and doesn’t leave skin oily, this all-natural foundation is an amazing daily wear—even in the Texas heat! The coverage is excellent and it leaves the texture of skin feeling natural and velvety.


EYE SHADOW: Honeybee Gardens Palette, $29.99,
These palettes boast beautiful colors, surprising lasting power and cute little compacts to stash in your bag. Whether you’re just getting started with gluten-free makeup or want to add a new splash of color to your makeup kit, these palettes are a fun and easy find.

EYELINER: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liquid Eyeliner, $20,
Tarte formulates its products without gluten. Cross-contamination could be an issue here, but if you’re not incredibly topically sensitive, you’re likely just fine using them. So, take advantage of the amazingly easy-to-use long-wear eyeliner. It boasts no running, no smudging, sharp lines and pure gorgeousness.

MASCARA: Mirabella Waterproof Mascara, $26,
This is the best gluten-free mascara on the market, bar none. It doesn’t flake, smudge or smear, even when you’re outside for hours at Blues on the Green and dripping sweat on everything within a half-mile radius. Also, it makes lashes look amazing.


LIPSTICK: Red Apple Lipstick, $23.50,
With rich, creamy, gorgeous formulations, Red Apple Lipstick named its company after its flagship product: lipstick. Red Apple has a cult following, beauty-product lovers who feel personally invested in the company, as customers are welcome to help name new colors and pitch ideas. And it’s all for good reason: You can’t go wrong with these amazing lipsticks. (P.S. They’re also all vegan.)
