We know it’s important to be good to the Earth now more than ever. But did you know that you can “do your part” while still looking amazing? Here is the list of my 8 favorite eco-friendly and cruelty free makeup brands. Perfect for everyone!
Aveda is a massively respected brand. Not only do they manufacture incredible cosmetics, but they also make hair and skin products as well. The company believes in connecting beauty, environment, and well-being through their products based on the principles of the Indian healing tradition of Ayurveda (hence the rad name). It’s not necessarily make-up, but I’m a HUGE fan of their hand-relief cream, which leaves your hands feeling soft and silky.
3. NYX Cosmetics
What else can really be said about this brand? This is one of those staple cosmetic brands that everyone is a fan of – green living junkies and skeptics alike. The company is great too. NYX manufactures professional makeup and accessories. The company provides a discount program for all currently licensed professionals, and all their products are cruelty-free and eco-friendly. I’m currently living for their liquid suede line in the “Soft-Spoken” color.
4. Kiss My Face
This brand is a lot less on the makeup side and much more on the skincare side. Kiss My Face manufactures beauty and hygiene products. They strive to make all their products from renewable sources and really live for helping the environment. Their moisturizer is out of this world and a complete must-have.
5. Tarte Cosmetics
Tarte Cosmetics manufactures skin care, cosmetics, product application tools and accessories. They strive to provide products that make the user feel glamorous while using products that are good for them and good for the environment. I received one of their color palettes early this year as a gift and haven’t stopped using it since!
6. Yes To
This brand has been a favorite of mine ever since I went “green” a few years ago. Yes To beauty and hygiene products combine minerals from the Dead Sea with organic fruits and vegetables in an attempt to nourish and hydrate the skin. I have happily been using their skincare and acne fighting systems for years now!
7. Aubrey Organics
Aubrey Organics manufactures all natural hair, skin and body care. They work with farm communities from all around the world to make products with the finest herbs, plant extracts, and natural vitamins. They still mix each batch of product by hand everyday. Their age-defying therapy cleanser? Absolutely to die for.
Jane manufactures beautiful cosmetics and cosmetic accessories. Their natural palette is one of my go-to’s whenever I just need a quick refresh before running some errands during the daytime hours. This company is more than just makeup, however. They seek to provide products from the highest quality formulas at affordable prices. The company gives back by encouraging women to be confident, courageous and socially conscious.
