Today we are talking cruelty-free makeup. More specifically, I’m going to tell you guys about the products I keep coming back to for my everyday makeup routine. With so many great cruelty-free brands out there, there is really no reason to support the brands that still test on animals. I’m doing my part to switch my makeup collection over to all cruelty-free products (most of what I’ve always loved already is!) and I hope a lot of you have done the same!
So lets jump right into the products I use almost daily.
Moisturizer: Pixi Glowtion Day Dew
Pixi has some really lovely products, and this brightening moisturizer is one of my go-tos on days I wear makeup. It adds just the faintest highlight to your skin so that foundation won’t make you look dull and lifeless.
Foundation: Milani 2-in-1
I am a huge fan of the Too Faced Born This Way foundations, but I grabbed this Milani foundation and concealer on a whim last summer because I needed a darker shade to match my tan and was not trying to spend a lot of money. I was pleasantly surprised at how full-coverage and pretty this drugstore product was, and I can’t stop using it!
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape
I feel like this stuff needs no explanation. Everyone loves it and has for some time now. It’s full-coverage, creamy, and does wonders for dark circles under the eyes. Just don’t go overboard with it! A little goes a long way and it can definitely crease if you don’t set it right.
Setting Powder: Elf Finishing Powder
I’ve honestly just started using this powder recently. I was fed up spending tons of money on powders that made me look cakey or that looked horrible in photos, so I grabbed this on the way out of Ulta a couple weeks ago. It was under $6 and is working really well so far!
Contour: Tarte Pro Glow to Go
I love this pallet because the “Chisel” shade is perfect for someone as fair-skinned as I am, and it’s great for beginners at contouring because it blends so nicely.
Highlight and Blush: Urban Decay Sin Afterglow Palette
This is probably my favorite product on the list. The blushes and highlights in this palette are gorgeous and I can’t get enough of them. Perfect for a fresh-faced and dewy look for spring and summer.
Eyeshadow: Tarte Flirt Palette
I’ve been really into warm and shimmery eye colors lately, so I keep coming back to the Flirt palette. It creates a pretty but subtle look perfect for every day.
Eyeliner: Tarte Sex Kitten
Can you tell how much I love Tarte? For bold looks, I’ve always loved the Maneater liner, but I’ve been loving the Sex Kitten liner for a more subtle look lately.
Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex
Again, doesn’t everyone love this stuff?
Lip Liner: Contour Cosmetics JuJu
I’ve never used Contour Cosmetics products, but I got sent this liner in a beauty box a few weeks ago and the color is perfect for someone like me who is obsessed with nude shades.
Lipstick: Too Faced Melted Latex Peekaboo
Okay, I can’t stop wearing this stuff. It wears nicely for hours and the color is soft and pinky without being too distracting from your eye look. The latex formulas can be a bit more sticky, so if you don’t like that try out the Melted Mattes instead!
And that wraps it up. All the products mentioned are listed below, so try them out for yourself and support the brands who are against animal testing!
