Vegan Cosmetics in My Makeup Bag
As you will be aware by now I will not use any cosmetics that have been tested on animals or have any ingredients which are derived from animals. I always buy cruelty free Vegan Cosmetics. However in the early days when I first became vegan I found it very difficult to find out what products were vegan friendly and it was very time consuming going into all the details about the product source and ingredients. So I thought as a guide for those new vegans out there, I’d write a blog on what I use and what I always keep in my make-up bag.
When sourcing my products I firstly look for organic or natural products as this tells me that they are made from ingredients which are not toxic or from anything that can harm my skin. This tends to narrow down my search and then I secondly ensure that they are free from animal testing or animal derivatives. The reason I do it this way is that vegan products will always be natural however natural products are not always vegan friendly.
Essential Vegan Cosmetics
My first essential vegan cosmetics product is of course the Vapourly Organic concealer which helps to reduce the look of the dark bags under my eyes and also covers up little imperfections in the skin such as spots. I then have a liquid foundation which is made by Zap Organic, it has a silky finish which I like as it further covers any blemishes and an added bonus is that it is long lasting. I then finish off with a mineral blusher made by Zest Beauty and I use a pale pink blush tone.
When it comes to the eyes then I love using a liquid eye liner which does take a bit of getting used to but with practice it does have a great effect. I purchase mine from Superday online. I use minimal eye shadow but I do like a little so I use a light cream which comes in two tones that blend well on the eyelid and are not to heavy from Cameo cosmetics. The to finish my eyes off I use a full volume waterproof mascara by Cameo cosmetics. It is great for making the lashes look thicker and longer and being waterproof it tends to last most of the day.
