Cruelty Free-Makeup

I’m not massively into make-up. I enjoy make-up free days, keeping it fresh and natural and to be honest, it’s never really been something I’ve spent a lot of money on.

However, I would be lying if I said that I didn’t wear it a fair amount on night’s out or if I’m going to a nice event. I also really, REALLY love a thick eyeliner wing. However, I don’t want innocent animals to suffer, in order to get my face looking slightly better.

So inspired by this video from Carrie, I’m going to be sharing the make-up that I’m using or replacing, to get a cruelty-free makeup bag:

As Carrie has done, I won’t be throwing out my makeup that I currently own (as that is quite frankly a waste,)- but I will be endeavoring to make the change throughout next year.

Here are the products I’m going to be trialling:

Foundation:

I currently wear Rimmel’s Lasting Finish in ‘Ivory’- cos mate, I’m pale af. However, Rimmel as a company still continues to test in areas where it is legal. UGH no, ta.

I’m investing in the Fenty Beauty foundation over Christmas, which is PETA approved and cruelty-free. It’s also supposed to work magic on your skin, so I’m hella excited for that!

Concealer: 

I don’t wear concealer (idk why I just don’t see the purpose) but here are some great options;

Colourpop No Filter Concealer or Tarte Shape Tape.

Brows:

I love thick, dark brows- and I was using L’Oreal before. However, once that product has completely run out, I’ll be trialing Soap and Glory’s Brow Archery.

Eyeliner:

Kat Von Dee’s products are all vegan and cruelty-free, which means that I can wing and tattoo away to my heart’s content. YAY.

Mascara:

Again I’ve been using Rimmel for mascara and have been for years! However, I’ve wanted to try the Too Faced “better than sex” for a while- so it seems like a perfect opportunity!

Lipsticks:

If you’re a fan of MAC then I’m sorry but you’re advocating one of the worst brands! I used to adore Velvet Teddy before I was educated on it, but now I’m sporting any of the Bare Minerals options. They’re all gorgeous, and the Gen Nude collection will replace any Velvet Teddy cravings I had before.

Contour/ Bronzers:

I love a good contour kit considering no matter how slim I get, I’m always going to have chubby cheeks! I’m already obsessed with the Too Faced “Chisled to perfection” kit.

Eyeshadows:

I love the urban decay palettes but their parent company is L’Oreal sadly, which renders them cruel as well. Although the palettes I have will probably last for ages- if I do invest in anything new then it’ll be from Too Faced’s chocolate collection.

Brushes: 

EcoTools and Real Techniques are both cruelty-free! YAY!

Are you trying to make your make-up less cruel?
