Vegan and cruelty-free beauty is certainly something that we hear a lot about these days concerning beauty products, and there's something very important about educating yourself on what ingredients are in your products and what they do. The first step in understanding all of this, is to learn what vegan means. Vegan means that there's no animal byproducts or ingredients at all in any of the beauty products. Since most people don't realize there are several popular vegan and animal cruelty-free beauty brands on the market, I've compiled a list of some of the most popular and quality lines. Start finding the best vegan makeup products that suit your needs, there are so many amazing things waiting for you to try!
Kat Von D started her makeup collection with a few shades of red lipstick and has since expanded into a global company for beauty that has a cult following. With several assorted pigmented lip colors, eyeshadows, all day wear eyeliners and waterproof mascaras, this line is not for the timid when it comes to self-expression. Kat Von D started out as a professional tattoo artist, then created a makeup line for Sephora back in 2008. Her love for beauty and art merged together beautifully to create one of the most coveted lines on the market. From eyeshadows to foundations, liners, and more, this line is cruelty-free and vegan. Need some help? They even have a list of all the products that are entirely vegan to make it so much easier for those animal lovers. Genius.

You won't find any synthetic ingredients such as parabens, fragrance, or animal testing, They offer a full range of products from skin care to foundation, and leave a beautiful polished finish on the skin.

With a large selection of eyeshadow palettes, bronzers, blushes, and pretty much everything for the makeup obsessed available, this line's core mission is to create amazing cruelty-free products that women love to wear and feel good about while doing so. I love the tones of the shadows and lipsticks they create, some being natural and pretty, others being bold and fun. You could seriously play all day with the eyeshadow palettes and plumping lip gloss, both a fan favorite along with their stay-all-day Born This Way Foundation.
Anastasia Beverly Hills started out specializing in brow products and is one of the most sought-after brow lines educating people on the very best ways they can enhance their arch. While the entire line isn't vegan, it is cruelty-free and they let consumers know which products are vegan, too. I love their Dipbrow pomade and brow wiz, and use it on myself daily along with clients too! The one thing to keep in mind about the brow pomade is a little goes a long way, so they usually last quite a long time.
Makeup Artist Tip: The lip primer is seriously the best product to use before wearing bold lipstick or matte formulas. One coat on the lips will smooth them out and prevent any flaking as well. It helps bright colors last all day without bleeding and should be a staple in everyone's makeup bag.
This cruelty-free brand provides a wide assortment of beautiful highlighters and blushes to choose from, the concept being dewy and highlighted skin looks the healthiest. (Which is a concept I can totally get behind!) With a ride range of products to browse, you'll find yourself addicted in no time. Apply the highlighting powder on the cheekbones for a beautiful glowing sheen.
