Plant Makeup is a bit different than regular makeup. It applies less pigmented on the skin, compared to the bold dramatic colors. When Jes, creator of Plant Makeup, first started out studying plants, she made plant based paints for a project in a class she was taking. The result was a lighter gentler paint, compared to deep colored conventional paints. Often chemicals make it possible to obtain bolder more pigmented makeup colors. Really cool shades, but not really made of the best ingredients. So plants themselves act more like a natural dye than a dramatic bold color stain. A compromise to the modern or new way of true natural beauty.
The Plant Makeup Story::
The journey first began in 2004 where Jes first discovered the language of plants in a medicinal herb greenhouse. She started with an organic line of herbal teas and slowly evolved it to a variety of beauty products and botanical fragrances. This site is dedicated to a revival of ancient beauty secrets using plant based dyes.

She has been studying herbal medicine since 2004. Good4You Tea, Good4You Herbals, Good4You and now Plant Makeup have been the manifestation of the ever evolving project. You might know her from Western Mass. farmers markets and craft fairs in the early days with teas, or her shop good4you on Etsy, or now with an array of elevated plant medicine in the form of makeup and skincare: Plant Makeup. Love, healing and a focus on nature friendly methods and materials has been the roots of this entire project. Every item has been handmade by her since the beginning up until recently.
