Cruelty-Free Beauty Recommendations For You

Makeup that works and doesn't harm any animals! What more could you want?

With the surge in animal rights so prevalent in our society, we thought we’d keep up with the trends and give you the best cruelty-free makeup available right now. Choose from a list of shimmery, rejuvenating treats with zero guilt!

Some examples of Cruelty-Free Businesses and their best products:

Smashbox

Smashbox can be found either in Boots, Debenhams or their own stores (their flagship store is in Covent Garden). They are a mid-high end makeup brand and have many great products with one of my favourites being their Photo Finish Primer.

Lush

Lush stores (as I'm sure we can all remember from the MIV) can be found everywhere, with some of their more notable stores being in Oxford Street or Victoria Place. They sell everything from bath bombs to lip balms and have lots of amazing products (I recommend any of the bath bombs) but an especially soothing one is the Sleepy Body Lotion.

Burt’s Bees

Burt's Bees can be found pretty much anywhere from Drugstores to airport Duty-Frees (and even Amazon if you are desperate). They also have the best lip balms, which do not contain any petroleum so your lips can’t get ‘addicted’ and stay completely natural.

All their lip balms are great but I also, especially in Winter, recommend their overnight intense lip treatment.

Makeup Revolution

Makeup Revolution can be found in Superdrug, which is pretty much everywhere - one of their stores can even be found in the Broadway. They are a drugstore makeup brand so their products are super affordable.

One of my favourite products is their Conceal and Define Concealer - a £4 dupe of Tarte Shape Tape.

Too Faced

Too Faced can be found either in Debenhams, Harvey Nichols or its own stores (one being on Carnaby Street). They are a high-end makeup brand that sells a huge range of products, with my personal favourite being the Love Light Highlighter.

Other brands include:

Milk, Hourglass, Kat Von D, Anastasia Beverly Hills, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, IT cosmetics, thebalm, Tarte, NYX, BareMinerals, Becca, Milani, Physicians Formula, ELF, Real Techniques, The Body Shop and many more!
