When many people begin to explore the world of makeup, the most concerning aspects of the products being chosen are if they’re inexpensive, if they match our skin tones, and if they give us the “look” we’re going for. Little do many of us think of the harm that comes from testing products on live animals.
When we stroll through the aisles of Sephora, Ulta Beauty, and so on … for many of us, the last thing on our minds is if the products we’re buying are indeed cruelty-free. Even being conscious of this, we might not necessarily know where to turn to find beauty products that are vegan and cruelty free. The list below discusses some recommendations on folks slaying the vegan make-up industry!
1. Aether Beauty
Aether Beauty prides itself on being “good for you + good for your skin + good for the planet.” Aside from being vegan, cruelty-free, and conscious of the impact that the cosmetic industry has on the environment, Aether Beauty has some beautiful color palettes that will most definitely up our make-up game. With its creamy texture, the Summer Solstice Palette will hydrate our skin and have us looking fine with those sunny, sultry shades.
2. Juice Beauty
With the exception of one lip product that contains sustainably sourced beeswax, many of the products from Juice Beauty are vegan and cruelty-free. Aside from a large range of lovely beauty products, Juice Beauty also sells skin-care and body products. Here’s the STEM Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Skincare line!
