While you might be mistaken in thinking that veganism stops at the dinner table, for some it’s a lifestyle that dictates all choices in products, from clothing to footwear and yes, beauty too.
Thanks to an ever-increasing interest in plant-based living, your favourite beauty brands are now offering more and more vegan-friendly options, with some brands even choosing to convert completely to an animal product-free way of doing business.
Whether you’re plant-based 24/7 or just interested in making ethical choices when it comes to your makeup kit, we’ve rounded up a fool-proof face of vegan-friendly makeup that works for any occasion...
REN Clean Skincare Perfect Canvas Clean Primer
This silicone-free pick primes skin with a probiotic-enriched formula that plumps and smooths, creating the perfect canvas for that flawless foundation finish. Intended to promote a healthy microbiome and cell renewal, this little guy draws on skin care technology to refresh and replenish your complexion as it perfects.
Morphe Hint Hint Skin Tint
Lightweight and sheer to medium coverage is on the menu with this plant-based skin tint. The moisture-boosting formula keeps skin hydrated up to 12 hours after application, meaning you can look forward to radiant, healthy-looking skin all day long.
Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer and Daytime Eye Cream
Enjoy all the benefits of a brightening eye cream plus medium and creamy coverage with this clever concealer. We’re talking lasting hydration and a smoothing, radiance-enhancing finish that will make you look like you actually got a full eight hours of shut-eye.
Stila One Step Correct Brightening Finishing Powder
Forget piling on the coverage; this colour correcting, finely-milled setting powder targets unwanted skin discolouration, redness and shadows for a refined, perfected complexion with just a few swipes of your brush. Vitamin E and ceramides keep skin hydrated and youthful-looking all damn day so you can worry about more important things.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Brow Freeze Brow Styling Wax
If there is one thing we’re well and truly over it’s overdrawn brows. In 2021, we’re all about letting ours loose and embracing natural texture by using nothing but a clear brow wax like this vegan-friendly option from Anastasia Beverly Hills.
BITE BEAUTY Upswing Full Volume Mascara
Plush, voluminous lashes are just a few swipes away with this chunky wand offering from BITE BEAUTY. Boasting a clean, non-flaking formula, adding this lash-lengthening pick to any kit is a no-brainer in our opinion.
MECCA MAX Zoom Shadow Stick
The fact that these shadow sticks are vegan is just an added bonus. The creamy, super-easy-to-use twistable crayon format makes creating a next-level eye look a literal breeze. Simply swipe on the colour of your choice and blend with your fingers (or buff out with a fluffy brush if you’re feeling fancy).
Fluff Bronzing Powder
This neutral-toned bronzer flatters a multitude of skin tones, and the finely-milled, firmly-packed powder formula blends like a dream for a subtly contoured bronzed complexion. No fuss, no muss.
NUDESTIX Nudies Bloom All Over Dewy Color Blush
Cream blush is a necessity in our opinion. This handy stick format makes application a breeze with the addition of a short-bristled stippling brush, so you can apply and blend on the go.
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick
Want skin that’s got that covetable lit-from-within glow? This balmy illuminator is the answer. Grape extract powers this gel formula highlighter, promoting your skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid and collagen for plump, youthful-looking skin that lasts beyond makeup application and removal.
Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm
We can’t function without lip balm. The idea of anyone having to endure dry chapped lips honestly makes us sad. Slather on a healthy dose of this conditioning cream-oil lip mask for a flexible barrier that coats and seals lips, providing lasting hydration.
