Pregnancy Safe Makeup: What to Use? When to Worry?

Pregnancy Safe Makeup

It probably is not a surprise that I get a lot of questions about pregnancy safe skincare and makeup. After all, I have a full guide to pregnancy safe skin care, and I am constantly reviewing ingredient lists of products to let my readers know if products are safe to use during pregnancy or not.

Recently there’s been a big increase in questions about pregnancy safe makeup, and what to worry about. Most of the emails and PMs about pregnancy safe makeup are from readers who sound very anxious about the ingredients in these products, much more so than readers asking about skincare. I felt that a full post addressing specific concerns was in order.

I’m not going to list pregnancy safe makeup products here, I will start individual posts (linked below and in my pregnancy safe skincare guide) to list some safe products. Please direct questions about specific products to those correct posts, I want to consolidate those questions to those posts so other readers can see what has already been asked about.

Anxiety Concerns

I feel as a physician I should mention that if you are feeling a lot of anxiety about your skincare or makeup while pregnant, you need to talk to your physician. I think you should talk about the products you’re worried about, but you really need to address the anxiety itself and consider treatment. Anxiety and depression go hand in hand, both can be debilitating, and having an increase in problems while pregnant can indicate an even higher risk for postpartum depression. Just because you are pregnant does not mean you should suck it up and press forward. In fact, it can (and should) be addressed and treated. I have had real concerns about some of the readers that write to me. If you think you fit into that description at all, please bring it up with your doctor.

Makeup vs Skincare

I want to point out that makeup is very different than skincare. Your skin’s primary job is to act as a barrier to the outside world. This is something that skincare companies need to formulate products to act against, and even then penetrating and getting active ingredients down into your skin can be difficult. Makeup is not formulated to be absorbed, it actually needs to do the exact opposite, it needs to stay on the surface of your skin and last all day being pretty. Keep that in mind when you’re concerned about your makeup.

Which Makeup to Worry About While Pregnant

Next, you need to think about the makeup you’re worrying about. Remember that skincare is made to absorb into your skin, but your mascara will only be on your lashes, which are made up of dead proteins. They’re not absorbing anything.

Don’t worry about: Eyeliner (it’s mostly wax, can’t absorb), mascara (sits on your dead lashes), powder products (they sit on the surface of the skin)

Check the label: I worry more about creams/liquids that are more likely to absorb into the skin. I would look at the labels of BB and CC Creams, Foundation Primers, foundation and concealer. Maybe a liquid highlighter as well. I also check lip products, because even though a lipstick is pretty waxy and won’t absorb as much, you’ll be licking and ingesting your lip products.

Why Is It So Hard to List Pregnancy Safe Makeup?

Unlike skincare products, it can be very hard to track down the ingredient list for makeup products online. Not all brands will list the ingredients for a face primer like they would a night cream.

In addition, the ingredient lists can vary depending upon shade of a product. The pigment for a red lipstick is different than that of a nude lipstick and might need different stabilizing ingredients to be included in the formulation for example.

Remember that makeup formulations are more likely to change than the ingredients in a night cream, and the brand is much less likely to announce a change in formula for a makeup product. They’ll announce a “new update” for a cream, but they usually don’t do this if there’s a change in a makeup product.

I’ll be working on more pregnancy safe makeup posts in the future (foundation and concealer are first on the list of posts to write). Let me know what products you want me to write about!

      No, they just sit on the surface of your skin. Just ignore the powders.

      Please check the post with the big list of pregnancy safe skincare products as this post is only about makeup. Both Clarins and La Mer have had their entire lines reviewed, if your products are NOT on the list they are not safe.

    Hi Christine,

    Do pregnant women need to worry about deodorants?
    Also, what about body lotion? Or hand cream?

    Is there any common body lotion you recommend?

    Thank you so much!

      There are very few deodorants that you should avoid, most are totally fine. I have an almost completed post about them, almost done!
      I haven’t worked on body products yet. I tell everyone to use the Cetaphil cream, that one works for body and hands 🙂

      I wouldn’t use large amounts of any extracts/essential oils straight on my skin while pregnant (actually, I wouldn’t do that ever), but in the small amounts they’re mixed into other products they’re fine (except for Willow Bark).

      All of these products look ok to me 🙂

    Hi, I like your post. Very helpful 🙂

    I also found so many foundation and concealor contain Paraben. For example, Maybelline Fit Foundation and Concealer contain methylparaben and butylparaben.
    Creams/liquids are more likely absorb into skin.
    Some articles said that Paraben can mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in the body’s cells.
    Are they okay to use?
    Could you please explain?

    Thank you 🙂
