As a makeup artist, you will occasionally come across clients who specifically request cruelty free makeup products. When this happens, you should be prepared with a high-quality cruelty free makeup solution that won’t hinder your ability to create that perfect look. These five cruelty free makeup products are excellent solutions:
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar
This line of pigmented tars comes in colors ranging from a fierce red to a shimmery white; they are also easy to mix to create your own creatively custom lip colors. It is easily applied with a brush and will stay on as long as a high quality lipstick. What’s more, all of your cruelty free clients will love it, as this cosmetic solution is 100 percent vegan.
Cover FX Illuminating Setting Powder
This fine powder creates a subtle shimmering effect that is sure to make your clients glow. The Illuminating Setting Powder manages to accomplish this while still keeping excess facial shine at bay.
Cover FX is a completely cruelty free cosmetics company, so you can reassure your clients by simply mentioning the brand name as you work.
Hard Candy Take it off Lotion Makeup Remover
If a cruelty free client shows up already wearing makeup, then you are going to have to remove it, and you don’t want to start off wrong by using a makeup remover that is not cruelty free. Fortunately, Hard Candy’s Take it off Lotion solves this problem. It can remove everything, even tough mascaras that don’t want to go away.
Hard Candy is yet another cosmetics brand well-known for being cruelty free, so don’t be hesitant to mention the name to clients.
Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette
This palette comes complete with a dozen beautifully bronze-hued neutrals. It comes with a very wide array of shades, ranging from its light ‘virgin’ color to its deeply dark ‘creep’ color. As such, you should have little problem finding the perfect neutral tone for cruelty free clients of all skin types in this palette.
Urban Decay’s website makes it very clear that the company does not use any animal-derived ingredients or test its products on animals, so the Naked Eye Shadow Palette will be a perfect fit for your cruelty free makeup drawer.
Too Faced Better than False Lashes Nylon Extension System
This two-part mascara system will generously extend your cruelty free clients’ lashes. The mascara and nylon fibers that it includes support each other, enhancing the durability once it’s applied.
Too Faced has one thing to say about animal testing: “No way.” As such, their Better than False Lashes Nylon Extension System is one of the best cruelty free makeup products available.
