As a vegan, one of my biggest problems is with the beauty industry. Animal testing is probably one of the cruelest forms of torture so why companies insist on testing on animals I’ll never know, but fortunately for those of us who love our bunnies, puppies, cats, mice, and rats there are alternative makeup solutions! That’s right ladies! No longer do we have to look grungy in order to support the animals we love.
Personally, I used to use several makeup lines in my daily routine that were not only testing on animals but were also insanely expensive! After becoming vegan I’ve switched to only using makeup lines that refuse to test on animals! Right now I’m using urban decay (their naked palate is amazing), Nars, and I even switched stylists because I will only highlight my hair with cruelty free dyes. I know that switching makeup brands can be daunting, but I assure you that since I’ve made the change not only is my conscious clearer, but my personal look has maybe improved slightly! So jump on the cruelty-free ride girls! These makeup lines are actually very easily accessed and reasonably priced!
