There is an endless supply of makeup out there. And if you like to shop a bit more ethically, you may want to buy products that are cruelty-free. This means that companies that produce, create and develop makeup do not in any way involve experimentation on animals. If you want to make sure you are buying legitimate cruelty free makeup brands, check to see if the company is actually listed as “cruelty free” on websites like peta2.com. If you shop religiously at Ulta Beauty like many others, I have compiled a list of cruelty-free beauty products you can find in the store.
