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, everyone wants to use the safest makeup during pregnancy. 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:
This is very important, I will not screen these products for you because you don’t need to worry about them.
• Eyeliner: it’s mostly wax, your skin can’t absorb it
• Mascara: Your lashes are dead hair, the mascara is on this only and it can’t absorb anything. This also applies  to the “serum” mascaras that promise to help your lashes grow longer. They’re really just a slightly more conditioning mascara.
• Powder products: they sit on the surface of the skin, this includes powder foundations, face powders, bronzers, highlighters, blushes, and eye shadows.
• Brow Products: Pretty much all formulations are fine. It’s a brow powder, a pencil like an eyeliner, or sometimes a mascara that goes on the brow hairs. The same arguments as above.

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 futur. Let me know what products you want me to write about!

Specific Pregnancy Safe Makeup Posts:

Check the pregnancy safe skincare product list, which has a lot of brands on it. I’ve been including relevant makeup products on these posts as well, such as the Pregnancy Safe MAC post, which is mostly makeup.

Pregnancy Safe Foundation Primers
Pregnancy Safe BB and CC Creams
Pregnancy Safe Foundations
Pregnancy Safe Concealers
Pregnancy Safe Setting Sprays

Ask about Product Safety

Note I have closed the comments here as I had many questions about product that were easily found on the list of pregnancy safe beauty brands. You can ask about your product on the brand specific page or the list of brands if your brand is not included.

    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!

    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 so much for checking sweetie. Can retinyl palmitate cause harm to the baby? Can I use retinol products while breastfeeding?

          It can cause harm, it’s the one that really is known to cause harm (though most of the evidence is with the prescription by mouth form). There’s some who say you can use it while nursing (I used it), but more recently I’ve noticed more dermatologists and OBs saying to avoid it.

    I would like to confirm if EDTA is safe or harmful as to some articles that I have read, it is one ingredient that should be avoided when pregnant.

    May I also ask regarding one product if it’s safe to use while pregnant, it’s called 3m cavilon extra dry skin cream with the following ingredients:
    Active Ingredients: Dimethicone
    Inactive Ingredients: Water, glycerin, soybean oil, PEG stearate, 1-glyceryl stearate
    Thanks in advance

      There’s more info in the post above, but you don’t need to worry about anything powder, mascara, or eyeliner. The only list here I would even check is the lipstick (because no matter what you end up eating some of it), and this looks fine to me.

    Hi Doc. I line and fill my eyebrows to add definition. I do have eyebrows but they have thinned out over the years from plucking so I use Maybeline tattoo studio eyebrow gel which i absolutely love. I use a very thin angled brush to apply it. Please tell me if it safe to continue to use. Thank you so much.

      This is mascara for the brows and doesn’t touch the skin, so I wouldn’t worry about it at all. The ingredients are fine though.

        Thank you Doctor! Do you have a recommendation for an affordable eye-makeup removal? I know on your Instagram you recommend Lancome Bi-facil but It is a little beyond my price-range :p
        Right now i’m just using mabeline eye make up removal with the following ingredients and i’m not sure if it’s safe to use once i’m pregnant:

        AQUA/WATER, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, ISOHEXADECANE, ISOPROPYL PALMITATE, PANTHENOL,DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, POLOXAMER 184, POLYAMINOPROPYL BIGUANIDE, POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, CI 61.Product Info565/ GREEN 6 (FIL B722.Product Kit2/3)

          Those ingredients are safe! Let me know if it works really well. I haven’t found a decent lower priced eye makeup remover for years, my old favorite was discontinued by Hard Candy.

            Linh T. Pham said:

            Thank you! i’m glad that it is safe because i have been using it for forever now. It is affordable, simple and gets the job done. I havent used other expensive option so I cant really tell you how different it is from those. There was as time that I tried using only Shu Uemura oil make up remover and skip this Maybeline eye-make up removing step, and it dried out my eyes so bad it irritates my eye, making them itchy! 🙁

            I’m not living in the US so this is the version available in my country: https://www.maybelline.vn/mat/taytrang/lip-and-eye-makeup-remover/8992304009341

            I checked Maybeline US and they are not offering this any more I think 🙁 I can gladly send you one if you’d like 😀 (though it does sound so funny to offer to send a Maybeline product to the US haha)

            LOL It does sound funny! That’s very sweet of you to offer, but I’m sure the shipping alone would be 3x the cost of the product! It feels like quite a few products have been discontinued recently, hopefully that means a new wave of products is coming out soon.

            Also Doctor, do you need help listing down all the pregnancy-safe products that people have asked in the comments and you confirmed? I do read the comments for posting a question of my own, and I can see that a lot of comments are repetition of questions and that you already answered 😀
            I feel like this is the least that I can do for all the kindness that you have shown us <3

            Thanks for the offer! I actually decided not to go and add things back up to the top since I don’t know where people get the lists sometimes as some of them (brands like Dior for instance) I can’t find listed anywhere.

      They’re both fine. You don’t need to worry about powder products at all actually.
      I think there are some contaminants in some colorants, but they are so small in amount and sporadic that we don’t worry about them. I would worry about lead exposure from certain pottery items for example rather than from makeup.

      So pretty much all whitening ingredients are on the “to avoid” list, and this concealer has Octadecenedioic Acid, which acts via a slightly different pathway, but I can’t verify safety. So I would pick a different concealer.

      Any powders are fine and you don’t need to worry about. Mascara only touches your lashes, which are dead hair. Eyeliners it depends on the formula, but most are just wax pencils and also not absorbed. Eyebrow products are usually powders, wax pencils or a mascara that is on the brow itself, so also nothing to worry about 🙂

      This is a very long list, if you refer to the post on how to ask about pregnancy safety you will note I ask people to limit themselves to a few items, and you have 15. I’m sorry, I can’t do this list, especially since you are also asking about skincare items I have already screened, please check the list of pregnancy safe skincare products for your skincare items. As noted in the post here, you don’t need to worry about mascara, brow products. You also don’t need to worry about hair products. Please refer to this post for the reasons why you don’t need to worry about most of these products.

      The products I just reviewed here:
      #3- avoid due to the licorice root extract
      #4- ok
      #5- both products are ok
      #9 has a salicylate
      #14 is fine, I haven’t included that on the Laneige page as that isn’t available in the US
      #15 is fine

      In large amounts in rats it does, but there’s no evidence in humans, and we don’t even recommend avoiding eating lemongrass while pregnant (a big source of citral), which is a much larger exposure than makeup or skincare.

    Hi There,

    I know you mention that eyeliners are generally fine, but was wondering if that also includes liquid liners? I assumed yes, but wanted to clarify.

    Also, are there certain daily chapsticks/lip balms (without a tint) you would generally recommend?

    Thanks!

      It does include liquids, they pretty much form a film that just sits on the surface of the skin.
      I don’t have a particular lip balm that I recommend, though note there are a lot of them over in the big list of pregnancy safe beauty brands (I’m just starting to add makeup to the brand pages, but most of the lip balms are there due to skincare anyways). I should make a separate post!

      I think the actual sunscreen ingredients are missing from #1, they’re usually listed under active ingredients. The Titanium Dioxide could be it, but very unlikely given there is a SPF value and it’s at the very end of the list. The other listed ingredients are ok, but I wouldn’t say it is safe for pregnancy unless we know what the sunscreens are.

      The blush is a powder, which sits on the surface of the skin and isn’t absorbed so you don’t need to worry about it. If you’re really nervous about the retinoid there you could use a different one, I think that Bobbi Brown makes a dupe for this one.

      The Innisfree looks fine to me. I’m planning to review that brand in the next week or so. Where do you buy it from? I’ve been polling people to find out where I should link directly to!

          The Iope looks ok, the Mediheal has licorice root which i usually say to avoid during pregnancy but is ok while nursing. The Herbal Essences is ok, though you don’t usually have to worry about shampoo. 🙂

          Thanks for the info on where to find those brands, hopefully I’ll have time to review them soon!

I know you have written that makeup generally sits on top of the skin, but I was wondering what you thought about the new magnetising eyeliners? and false lash glues?

      The duo and tarte glues are both ok, I’m not certain what to think of the magnetic liner truthfully! I’m sure most of it stays on the surface of the skin, but the magnetic stuff…. hmmm…. if the glue works for you I’d go with that LOL

      The foundation has a chemical sunscreen to avoid during pregnancy, ok for nursing.

        Thank you for that! with respect to the foundation, is it the titanium dioxide? I thought that was safe? Or is there another chemical sunscreen element that I’m not seeing in the foundation?

    Hi! So happy I found your site – it’s proving so helpful. Planning on trying for our 2nd so I am overhauling my makeup collection to make sure it is pregnancy safe 🙂 just a couple general Qs about some ingredients that I occasionally see popping up in primers, foundations, or lipsticks:

    Saccharide Isomerate

    Beeswax – I remember avoiding eating honey during my first pregnancy (pasteurization concerns as I recall) and didn’t know if same rules applies to beeswax.

    Soybean oil/extract – I have heard that soy is not good to ingest because it can affect hormones. What about in skincare especially during pregnancy?

    Finally, what are your thoughts on nut extracts (almond, hazelnut) – do you think this could lead to allergies for a child if they are absorbing it in utero?

    Thank you!!!

    • 5.26.19
      15mins said:

      All of those are fine during pregnancy.
      The reason to avoid honey is the pasteurization, this doesn’t apply to wax at all.
      OBs don’t recommend avoiding soy particularly while pregnant and it isn’t an issue with topical applications (though remember, things in moderation…) A lot of soy can have estrogenic effects.
      They’ve looked at exposures to allergens such nuts, and no real link that I remember to in utero exposure and we don’t recommend avoiding eating them while pregnant. HOWEVER there is a benefit to early exposure (as in a few months old, when they can start eating baby food), look into Bamba snacks, that’s a good way to do it, I’d ask your pediatrician around 4-6 months. Of note, allergies themselves aren’t inherited, but the propensity to develop them is.

    Hi doc.
    I’m using ryx skincerity rejuvenate set
    I’ve been using it for 1 week , and stopped it today cause i rushed to hospital because of spotting/bledding i’m 16w pregnant btw.
    My doctor didnt know the cause of bledding!

      I would stop this product due to the retinoid. However it is NOT the cause of the bleeding, the issues with retinoids are not related to bleeding. This product did not cause the bleeding, it is NOT your fault.

      Unfortunately the bleeding is something that we sometimes see in pregnancy (and yes, even in healthy pregnancies that result in full term, healthy babies). We often do not get answers for why this happens, and I am not surprised that your doctor didn’t know why the bleeding happened. I would continue to work closely with your doctor to monitor your pregnancy, but please know that this was not due to the product, it was not your fault, and nothing you did or did not do caused the bleeding or could have prevented the bleeding.

      The first and third have Cannabis in them. Here’s my safety blurb about that:
      There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well. Note Hemp does not have THC in it, it’s breed out of the plant basically. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

      I don’t know truthfully, they use a lot of different chemicals and it depends a lot on the salon and how they do it. In theory you don’t absorb anything through the nails, but I’m not able to see any of the products usually that they use. I would discuss with your OB

          In the US we don’t recognize a gradiation on risk, there isn’t an “acceptable” level that I can tell you is fine to do. We only recognize all or none basically. I wouldn’t use any of the products with unsafe ingredients while pregnant, it’s up to you if you want to take the risk.
