Top Face Makeup Products Made in the USA


Not all products are created equal and not all makeup products are made in the USA either. Just because one product from a line is made in America doesn’t mean that the entire line of products is made there. So the rule of thumb is even if you have heard that the beauty line is “made in the USA” make sure to check the label to ensure that you are buying locally. Since this can be a daunting task we’ve scoured the makeup shelves and have come up with a quick list of top face makeup products made in the USA, from BB Creams to self-tanner and more.

1. Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream

Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream Miracle Skin Protector
BB Creams are a hot item, giving you the benefits of skin care and foundation in one product. When you can find one that’s made in the USA then it’s a triple threat. Garnier’s BB cream is just that, and then some. When you add in the ability to find it at any local drugstore and a price under $15 you’ve got yourself a winner that will make you proud to be an American while looking fantastic at the same time.

2. Mineral Fusion Sheer Tint

Mineral Fusion Sheer Tint
Mineral Fusion manufactures a lot of really wonderful and natural mineral products right here in the USA. One of my favorite makeup products for the face is their Sheer Tint. It’s similar to a tinted moisturizer by giving you a lightweight feel and minimal coverage, but this one also has a nice boost of age-defying ingredients as well. As a bonus it also contains skin soothing ingredients, no parabens or fragrances, and since it’s made in America it’s definitely worth making the switch from your regular non-American made tinted moisturizer.

3. L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator

L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator
This BB Cream gives you a good tinted moisturizer while also adding a broad spectrum SPF15. Although it's not one of our top picks for BB Creams, it's still a good wear during the day. The bonus is that it’s also made in the USA so you can get a wonderful finish while knowing that you’re supporting your country at the same time.

4. L’Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup SPF17

L'Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute
L’Oreal’s Visible Lift Serum gives your skin a nice flawless coverage, contains five exclusive ingredients that help to reverse the signs of aging, and it’s made in the USA. Other than supporting your country the incredible part is seeing firmer, brighter, and smoother skin in approximately 4-weeks. It does all of this while also hydrating and evening your skin tone, plus with an added SPF17 you will be protected from sun damage and future sun aging. Visible Lift Serum Absolute is perfect for normal to dry skin types and is available in 12 shades to help you easily show your support for the Red, White, and Blue.

Also seen as a “BB Cream”, it’s not just the Miracle Skin Transformer for face that’s made in the USA; all of their fabulous makeup products are made there. Some of our favorites, other than the one for the face, include their Treat & Conceal, and their body product with SPF20. So technically you could use all of their products and rest assured that you are covered from head-to-toe in products made in America.

6. Stila Cosmetics Convertible Color

Stila Cosmetics Convertible Color
Stila’s Convertible Color has always been a must-have for my cheeks and lips, so with the added benefit of being made in the USA it is now officially my all-time favorite cheek product. Why do I love it so much? Simply put, it’s a cheek and lip stain in one convenient compact so I spend less time searching for products or applying them. As a bonus you can choose from seven fun shades, and the 0.15 ounce compact will last you for a very long time since a little bit goes a very long way.

7. Jergens Natural Glow Gradual Facial Tanner

This is a great product for those that need to either slowly make their way into a self-tanner, or those that need a little pick-me-up in between regular self-tanning applications. The real kicker however is that it’s also made in the USA. As a bonus it’s also a moisturizer as well, and the self-tanning aspect is very minimal so you don’t end up super tan or orange. This is available in a variety of shades as well as multiple formulations to fit your skin type.

8. Beautisol Need I Glow More Face Self-Tanner

Beautisol Self Tanning Lotion
Beautisol self-tanning lotion for face has been featured on various TV shows such as Kathie Lee and Hoda and Good Morning America. But there are more reasons as to why Beautisol is a must-have self-tanner. This made in the USA wonder-product gives your skin the most perfect and natural-looking fake tan. It also works as a double-duty beauty aid, by packing you skin with antioxidants and various anti-aging ingredients. And since real tanning is “out”, why not reach for an American made product for your fake tan?

Blemishes can be a pest at any age, but this product will be your skins’ savior. Not only does it work hard to attack blemishes without drying out your skin, but it’s also lightly tinted to help cover as it cures, and it’s made in the USA. The bonus it that you can use it on both your face and body, and it’s almost like magic since it works so quickly to eliminate any blemish in sight. It’s only available in one tint, but the color is so sheer that you can easily use it on any skin tone.

10. Alba Botanica Very Emollient Sunless Tanner

Alba Very Emollient Sunless Tanner
Self-tanners are a must, especially since real tanning is a no-no. Alba’s self-tanner is even more of a must-have because it’s 100% vegetarian, gives your skin a beautifully natural glow, and it’s made in the USA. I would call this one more of a gradual self-tanner because it really does tan you slowly, but the amount is absolutely perfect for your skin tone. Plus it looks 100% natural, and what’s better than using a self-tanner that’s made in America?
