Makeup is something a lot of us use every single day, and yet we don’t take into account the harmful consequences our purchases can have due. Cruelty-free makeup is a fantastic way of ensuring you do your part to help protect animals and ideally make this a world free of animal testing.
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills
I’ve always loved this brand, and when I learnt that they produced cruelty-free makeup it really made me love them even more. Anastasia Beverly Hills makes the best brow products that will change your life once you try them. They are also renowned for their gorgeous highlighter kits and contour kits. Great quality makeup that will last you all day, I would definitely recommend.
2. Too Faced
Too Faced makes a great range of products in absolutely adorable packaging! Their makeup is predominantly made up of versatile shades that can go from work to dinner in no time. They have a bunch of products that are fan-favourites such as the Chocolate Bar palette (which actually smells like chocolate) and their Better Than Sex mascara.
3. Marc Jacobs Beauty
They offer high-quality cruelty-free makeup, however their perfume line sadly does not abide by this same policy against animal testing. This company is renowned for their intense pigments that will be sure to last you no matter how long the day is.
Covergirl is great because it is very reasonably priced and available at most drugstores, thus making it one of the most accessible cruelty-free brands. They have also been known to be very inclusive with regards to those who represent the brand. The products are good quality and I have sworn by their foundation for years.
Lush is the absolute best. From shampoo and conditioner bars to scrubs, mascara and everything in between, they are really your one-stop shop for everything cruelty free. They have an entire campaign dedicated to fighting animal testing, and that along with the fantastic quality and scents of their products is more than enough reason to check them out.
Stila has some of the most long-lasting and best quality eyeliner I’ve ever tried, and the fact that it’s cruelty-free makes it even better. They carry a whole range of products with uniquely pigmented shades at reasonable prices.
7. Aether Beauty
This brand is proud to boast a range of entirely vegan products. They have an entire section on their website dedicated to their ingredients, you have to love that kind of transparency from a brand. They have a few stunning eyeshadow palettes that have insane shimmer and go on very easily.
8. Affordable Mineral Makeup
If you have super sensitive skin then this cruelty-free makeup brand is perfect for you. All of their products are super gentle on your skin and won’t cause any irritation or inflammation. The brand prides themselves on being entirely vegan and kind to you as well as animals.
9. Lime Crime
Yet another entirely vegan & cruelty-free makeup brand, Lime Crime is an eccentric and unique company. They have all kinds of makeup with vibrant hues that are perfect for the summer months as well as accessories and a plethora of hair dyes. Be sure to check out their cool products, you probably won’t find similar ones anywhere else!
10. Hourglass Cosmetics
Hourglass sells high-quality makeup for very reasonable prices. Their setting powder is one of their top sellers because of the fact that it’s not cakey while still giving your face a perfect finish. Their brushes are gentle, fluffy and great to use and all of their products are smooth and easy to apply. They also have a vegan section of products on their website to save you the time researching!
This brand definitely takes pride in all of their products being entirely cruelty-free. They are renowned for their efforts towards a cruelty-free industry as well as their fantastic products. The brand is promoted by beauty industry professionals and celebrities alike which attests to just how good the products are.
12. Kat Von D
Kat Von D is definitely not shy to openly speak about how vehemently against animal cruelty she is. Therefore it should not come as a shock that all of the brand’s products are entirely cruelty free. The eyeliners have one of the longest-lasting formulas I’ve seen to date; They don’t fade or budge throughout your day no matter what life puts you through.
