In efforts to save our skin and to save our planet, you can make little changes in your everyday life starting with what products you are using on your face, skin, and hair. Thankfully, there has been a large growth of vegan beauty brands in the last decade making the change effortless and beneficial to us and our planet. Here are 10 vegan beauty brands that you to try!
1. Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez
Along with the products being certified vegan, you can rest assured that even the packaging is going to be recyclable after you are done using it! Rare Beauty breaks down the shipping containers that they use from the tape all the way to the box itself.
Rare Beauty is certified vegan and cruelty-free by PETA and formulates every product for the love and care of sensitive skin types! Rare Beauty offers a little bit of everything for you to enjoy while making yourself pretty!
2. KVD Vegan Beauty
Want to steal Kat Von D’s killer liner? Why not shop it at her own brand! KVD Beauty has been in the market since 2008 and has been proudly cruelty-free the entire time. 13 years later, KVD has grown in the makeup empire offering more products than ever before.
Shortly after the launch of KVD Beauty, the brand launched its first vegan eyeliner and made moves to become 100% vegan by 2016. KVD Beauty provides a large number of resources and information on the vegan beauty movement as well as their own company. This is probably one of the most transparent brands with their products and we love that!
3. E.L.F Cosmetics
You know your first tube of mascara from Target in the 7th grade? Yep, that is the same brand! E.L.F. makes sure that all of their packagings for their makeup is waste-free and is not going to litter the planet after each use.
All E.L.F. products are 100% vegan and 100% cruelty-free so you can be certain that every product you purchase is clean and caring to our furry friends. This is not the same brand you remember from junior high as they have grown to be cleaner as a company and producing more products for all makeup lovers to enjoy.
4. Milk Makeup
For our simple gals and the masters of the no makeup, makeup look, this brand is for you! Milk Makeup finally made the change to be 100% vegan in all of its products. Their website breaks down what that means for their company and some important vocabulary you should know about when buying vegan makeup.
Milk Makeup makes an emphasis on the importance of the change for your skin and the planet. Changing to vegan makeup can have a positive impact on overall animal consumption and better skin for you!
5. Summer Fridays
When it comes to skincare, it can be tricky with sensitive skin and trying new things. On top of all of that, if you are wanting to use cruelty-free or vegan products, then the search just got harder. Summer Fridays not only offers all cruelty-free and vegan beauty products but recyclable packing and skincare that is paraben-free and sulfate-free!
We love that Summer Fridays is even transparent with their fragrance use and what goes into their incredible masks. We love that they care for our furry friends as much as we do!
One of the oldest in the game, Pacifica has always been vegan and cruelty-free with all of its products. Offering more than just a vegan mascara, Pacifica has it all. From nail polish, makeup pallets, hair care, and foundation, you are bound to find something that both you are your skin love!
Recently Pacifica has launched a vegan alternative to collagen skincare so you can receive the amazing benefits of collagen use without the hefty price of non-vegan products. Along with these amazing products, Pacifica also recently launched a hemp line of products with hemp-infused in makeup and skincare.
7. Hourglass Cosmetics
From the beginning, Hourglass has always been a cruelty-free and vegan beauty brand that refused to test on animals when launching a new product. Hourglass began to reevaluate what their cruelty-free mission really meant to them and they believed they need to make an even deeper change.
As of December 2020, Hourglass became completely vegan and began to reimagine their original and well-loved products to better serve their customers and animals. The popular red lipstick from Hourglass, Red 0 is a symbol for the brand on their stance for the planet and animals.

The brand has recently launched a line of lipsticks that are equally as great and clean. The fun polishes are certified by PETA to be completely vegan so you can keep your hands looking pretty and your beauty clean!
9. Love Beauty and Planet
Our favorite product from this little brand has to be the shampoo and conditioner set! So scrumptious, you almost want to eat it. It will leave your luscious locks smelling great and you can brag about the fact that it is all vegan and cruelty-free.
Love Beauty and Planet is innovating a faster shower time with their products so you are not standing under the shower water for hours trying to get all of the shampoo out. There are tons of other great products from the brand that we are dying to try!
Bath bombs, soaps, and skincare, oh my! Lush has it all. Lush brags that all of their products are 100% vegetarian and has a line of complete vegan beauty products. On top of a great vegetarian product, Lush prides itself in less packaging to show even more love for the planet.
