Thankfully, cruelty free and vegan beauty products are becoming much more widely available in the UK and probably more brands than you realise offer such products. Websites such as Cute Cosmetics are a great resource for finding new brands and being safe in the knowledge that no animal was harmed for the dressing up of your face. Here’s a pick of some of my everyday favourites.
Neve Cosmetics Eye Palette £ 21.95
So far, this is the only Neve product I have used but I will definitely be investing in some more. Ok, so it’s rather on the pricey side but it’s long lasting and great quality. The colours are perfect for creating an every day make-up look and won’t fade after a long day at work.
Tarte Clay Amazonian Clay Foundation £28
First purchased in the US, I had previously heard great things about this foundation and it certainly lived up to the hype. Gives great coverage and a smooth finish. The only tricky thing is to find the right colour amongst the wide palette available.
Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Concealer £15
Too Faced is a great brand with the majority of the products being vegan. I loved this concealer. A great consistency for covering under eye circles and blemishes.
B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick in Eton Mess £5.99
If you didn’t know by now, all of Superdrug’s own brand makeup and skincare is vegan and cruelty free. Not only that, it’s extremely reasonably priced.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara £19
I love this mascara. Definitely the best cruelty free one I’ve tried so far. The innovatively designed brush makes for easy and quick application and I love the fact that the more coats you apply, the more dramatic the look.
Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Matt Bronzer
I use this as more of a blusher and it works wonders. It gives me a natural glow and lasts all day.
Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Eyeliner £
I am rarely without an eyeliner flick and this one by Kat Von D is amongst the best I have ever used. It give intense colour and most importantly, doesn’t smudge or budge! Kat Von D has just announced that she will be reformulating her entire range to be vegan and cruelty free and the brand has just launched at Debenhams.
Thanks for reading.
