I have recently been reading more and more about what goes into makeup, after repeatedly having issues with foundations (a reason why I never wear them). During my research, I also took a look into the difference between vegan and cruelty-free, as well as which brands were vegan and/or cruelty free and which ones weren’t. I actually discovered how little I really knew on the topic and learned, to my dismay, that many of the brands I had simply assumed were not testing on animals or used animal products actually do.
Coupled with my increasing fear of synthetic ingredients (FUN FACT! The inner hippie in me also hates microwaves – I don’t own one for this reason!), I decided to dive into the bottomless resource that is pinterest, and see what kind of vegan, cruelty-free, do-it-yourself recipes were out there for makeup.
Although I have yet to make them myself, I was totally impressed by What’s that Smell’s DIY homemade loose face powder, The Clean Dish’s all natural homemade blush with dried raspberries, and hello glow’s creamy marsala diy lip gloss, and will definitely be giving these diys a try very soon.
What is your take on synthetic makeup or makeup that is not cruelty-free or vegan? What are your favorite cruelty-free and/or vegan brands?
