In spirit of Earth Day this past Monday, we wanted to share some of the best vegan makeup products we swear by! Our team of artists chooses only the most professional and skin-friendly products available for our clients. How our skin reacts to some products directly correlates with the quality of ingredients that go into your makeup. Which products are the most beneficial?
Always make sure you check products before purchasing for a symbol that guarantees it is vegan and cruelty free. On the packaging, you will see one of the symbols in the chart below. Purchasing items that are cruelty-free will help fight animal testing and ensure your products did not mistreat animals in any way. Purchasing vegan products will ensure the best quality products for your skin. Especially if you experience breakouts or sensitivity, the added chemicals in non-vegan makeup products can irritate and make these problems worse!
Tarte is known for a whole slew of products that check all the boxes of natural and vegan. They conform to a completely candid marketing scheme and always list all ingredients for any product. What we love about their products are the hydrating properties. They offer skin care to cosmetics that are designed to treat your skin while you wear. All of their products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten. It’s peace of mind to know the makeup on your skin won’t add irritation and jeopardize your pores through long-wear!
They have become most famous for their shape tape concealer and foundation duo which guarantees full coverage without creasing or drying out. Pair with their setting powder and you’ll be good for hours! We love their tarteist lip paint that provides a smooth pigment and lasts through sips and snacks.
Milk is a creative brand based out of New York City. They are cruelty-free, paraben-free, and 100% vegan. Their products cater to the city social scene and they take a lot of inspiration from community in order to provide the best quality items to their customers. A festival staple has become their eye pigments that are versatile and hyper-pigmented. You can pick up their Watermelon Brightening Serum (below) which is suitable for any skin type and offers some amazing brightening results. Really want to shine? Try on their Glitter Stick for size and let your inner shimmer goddess run wild!
All of the products in Kat Von D’s line are 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free. Kat Von D was inspired by her career as a tattoo artist to come up with long-lasting products with easy to use application. Owner of KiSSandMaKeUp, Pamela, uses the Kat Von D tattoo liquid eyeliner as the second step to her signature eyeliner! The products in her collection such as the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation and Setting Powder stand up to the heat of summer and long days.
If you have been to the KiSSandMaKeUp Studio in the Hillard Mills, you got to see our display of Earth by VP Artistry. We love Earth lipstick and lip glosses as birthday gifts, bridesmaid gifts, and a must-have makeup bag product. Come check out these perfect hues at our studio and take one home!
“I am so grateful to share my love for lip products with you! The BEST part? ALL of the products in this line are ALL NATURAL, ORGANIC, VEGAN, CRUELTY FREE and GLUTEN FREE! These lipstick and lip gloss options not only reflect some of my favorite colors (nudes, blush pinks and roses, peaches and red), but they also reflect my lifestyle and what’s important to me.” ✌🏼❤💄💋 – Vanessa, VP Artistry
