As the beauty industry moves to become greener, one of the biggest trends happens to be the creation of vegan cosmetics. We already know what you’re thinking, “vegan cosmetics?” Many people are unaware of the ingredients that exist within their favorite lipsticks, eye shadows and powder. Most of today’s mainstream beauty products are made with animal by-products and test their products on animals before producing them for the masses. For those of you who are animal-lovers or who don’t consume animal products, vegan makeup is a wonderful way to support your beliefs while still looking fabulous! Here are a few of the top vegan makeup lines that we are going ga-ga over! Even if you are not a vegetarian or vegan, you might want to try some of these products as they are an all-natural, healthy alternative to traditional makeup!
Suncoat is known for its water-based nail polishes which are a great product for vegans and animal-lovers in search of high quality nail lacquers made without any animal by-products. They have expanded the line to include lip glosses, lip sticks, natural liquid liner, mascara, nail polish remover, eye shadow and foundation. There are also natural hair care products available too!
