My top 5 all natural makeup products

Did you know that we absorb about 60-70% of everything we put onto our skin into our blood stream? So if any of your makeup contains chemicals then you have have these chemicals pumping around your body! Especially with being pregnant, I really care what I am putting in and ON my body!
