Cruelty-free makeup brands that are also Vegan!

Jun. 29, 2020
So you want to go cruelty-free with your makeup and skincare routine but it isn't as easy as you were expecting? There are many buzzwords, strange terminology, different accrediting bodies and unclear labels floating around making it hard to decipher what you might actually be buying into. You have to delve a little deeper into the claims of beauty brands you’re interested in to ensure there is definitely zero animal testing related to the products you’re using and the business you're supporting.
You may not think that just by switching your products will make a difference, but when you spend your money with cruelty-free brands you will help to send a message to cosmetic giants and big beauty brands. Vegan Makeup does not include animal ingredients or byproducts such as beeswax, lanolin, whey, and carmine and for it to be certified cruelty Free Makeup, cosmetics products and ingredients must not be tested on animals.
Many big-name companies that promote beauty have an shocking ugly truth behind how their products are made. To fight this, cruelty-free brands have shown us that we don’t have to choose between looking good and being kind and now most of these brands are vegan too! Keeping cruelty-free and vegan in mind, we’ve highlighted makeup brands that protect the welfare of both animals and children. These brands redefine what it means to be truly ‘cruelty-free’ and deserve to be recognised for it!

Lime Crime loves furry friends! They offer cruelty free cosmetics, which means they do NOT test on animals and they certify that all of their makeup products are 100% vegan. They’re proud to be certified by both PETA and The Leaping Bunny Program. Most employees actively adopt and foster furry friends who need our love.

Sam Marcel
Sam Marcel lives by the motto that art and beauty can change the world. Sam spent many years researching the makeup industry and learned that most products were made from cheap and sometimes dangerous ingredients designed only to compete in a crowded market place, making as much money for their companies as possible. Sam and his partner wanted to produce a product that was not tested on animals, a product that was 100% cruelty free, Gluten and paraben free, and vegan and that's just what they did!
Real Techniques
Real Techniques does not test their products on animals, and they do not outsource animal testing to third parties for testing on their behalf. There has been no testing on ingredients or finished products throughout the development, manufacturing, or distribution process. Real Techniques products are also 100% vegan meaning none of their products contain ingredients derived from animals or animal by-products.

Will this replace oil blotting sheets?

Hoping this will be my forever oil blotting “sheet”! The sound of this product will 100% crack you up. The ball actually turns a darker orange when sebum interacts with it! I’m not wearing any foundation, what’s on the ball is purely oil. Who else has had good results with this?

My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
