Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Make Up For Ever

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Make Up For Ever

Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Make Up For Ever as of 2/21/2020. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, etc. Please note, a lot of the MUFE products do not have ingredient lists available online. If your product isn’t included here, please obtain the full ingredients list to ask about safety.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

    hi there! Can I just clarify on the make up forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation?
    I was under the impression that the following ingredients are not pregnancy safe:
    BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), Alumina, aluminium hydroxide?
    Hope i’m wrong! Thanks always for your gracious help 🙂

      My list of ingredients to avoid in pregnancy is pretty conservative for the medical community (which, note, is different than some random bloggers online. And I say this as a random blogger, though I’m an MD). Here’s my post about this: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      All of those ingredients are fine. Which is why I’ve sorted the products as they are.

      I was surprised they didn’t have it on their website when I went through the full site recently, I used to love this one! I was wondering if it had been discontinued. Do you know?
      Otherwise, it looks ok to me for pregnancy and nursing
