It is the small efforts that go forward and create a really great impact. Just talking about how the planet is getting ruined by all the modernisation and thinking that somebody else will save it, is not enough. What you choose to do is what makes a difference and it is you who have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
So, here I want you to know that it is high time to start embracing the vegan makeup. If you have even a little concern for the planet then including eco-friendly vegan bridal makeup for your wedding can be the first step towards making this world a better place.
Choose clean beauty
because girl, you’re
too pretty to poison.
In order to make you understand the seriousness of the situation, here I have mentioned some ingredients that you’ll find in most of your beauty products.
|Guanine (scrapings of dead fish’s scales)||Sparkly nail polish, eyeshadow, highlighters, bronzers & blushes||Aluminium based glitter|
|Collagen (animal connective tissue)||Anti-ageing products||Soya protein & almond oil|
|Keratin (animal hairs and horns)||Nail and hair strengthening products||Soya protein & almond oil|
|Beeswax (bee barf)||Mascara||Plant and soy wax|
|Carmine (crushed cochineal beetles)||Red coloured lipsticks||Red food colouring|
|Shellac (crushed lac bugs)||Nail polish||Gel-based nail polish|
|Squalene (shark liver oil)||Lip balm, Deodrabnts, Moisturizers||Vegan squalene derived from olives and wheat germ|
|Allantoin (cow pee)||Cosmetics for sensitive skin||Leaves of the comfrey plant|
Now that you know the nasty truth behind those fancy names of the ingredients will you still continue to use them?
Be it your everyday routine or getting ready for a special occasion there are many vegan makeup options that are available in the markets. Adhering to a vegan diet is much easier than finding vegan wedding makeup. Historically, when searching for the vegan options in makeup would have yielded just some mere scraps, but I am very much glad to report that the tide is changing.

There are quite a few misconceptions that what all products should be categorized under non-vegan makeup. So, in order to clear things up, anything that is derived from the animals or their byproducts is non-vegan.
Being a vegan makeup doesn’t essentially mean that the product is chemical free but most of the cruelty-free brands tend to emphasize on natural plant-based formulations that are kinder to the skin.
For many years the vegan makeup was made up of all washed out pigments and watery foundations but due to the advancement in cosmetic science, it is a thing of the past. With many of the top brands considering their own beauty cosmetic lineups promoting vegan products, they can now compete with their lesser compassionate counterparts.
Be it the vegan makeup for sensitive skin or the products that have impressive staying power with seamless coverage, the lines are getting blurred between the mainstream and all-vegan products. As more and more people get acquainted with these vegan makeup brands it is sure to help revive our degrading planet.
We usually buy the products by just looking at its brands and what’s highlighted on the front of the packaging. What we fail to consider is the list of different ingredients that’s really crucial to differentiate between the vegan makeup and other mainstream makeup products.
Many of the top makeup brands are now dipping their toes into the vegan sector - Barry M, Anastasia Beverly Hill, Urban Decay are a few of those but they do not commit on being free from the synthetic chemicals. There are also various different 100% vegan makeup brands that have come up and became popular in recent times.
Here’s a categorized list of brands that are 100% vegan & can provide all the products that you’ll need to fill up your vegan makeup beauty box.

Being a nature lover, I sincerely think that if this blog even inspires one person to ditch the cruel makeup that’s harmful to the environment and accept vegan makeup instead, then it’s an achievement.
As I conclude here I would like to ask you that if you’ll be accepting the call of nature and embrace the makeup products that are nature-friendly?
Are you up for making a real difference?
