The Top Vegan Beauty Brands in the Business Revealed
While we all know the drill when it comes to switching to a vegan diet, going animal-free in other areas of your life is a whole new ball game.
If you’ve come to rely on a certain foundation every day, finding a vegan alternative that’s just as good can be tricky. Plus, with long complicated ingredient lists, it can be tough to tell whether a product contains any animal-derived elements in the first place.
However, help is at hand as one UK-based company asked consumers to vote for their favorite vegan beauty brands to determine the 7 best out there. The list includes a host of cult favorites alongside some lesser-known names and saves you the trouble of scouring those labels.
American brand e.l.f.(which stands for eyes, lips, face) is beloved for its affordable, on-trend makeup. Offering seriously good vegan value, you can get a seven-shade eyeshadow palette for AED 45 and the ever-popular ‘Flawless Finish Foundation’ at just AED 22!
When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, no one does it better than Urban Decay. Fans were devastated when the vegan-friendly brand announced it was discontinuing its original ‘Naked’ palette last year. However, a new palette was soon released and the ‘Naked’ range – along with the legendary ‘All Nighter Setting Spray’ – remains in the bestseller list. And both are must-haves in any beauty buff’s kit.
Quality brushes are a must for any makeup maven and the EcoTools brushes, made with renewable bamboo handles and synthetics fibers, are loved by pros and amateurs alike. It also makes a mean detangling hairbrush.
When it comes to a true beauty wonderland, you can’t compete with Sephora, especially when you’re after a vegan beauty product. Stocking thousands of vegan beauty buys from the likes of Kat Von D, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Cover FX, it’s no wonder makeup obsessives make a beeline for Sephora anytime they’re in a mall.
There aren’t many brands equally well-known for their skincare and makeup offerings but Tarte excels at both. Fan favorites include the multipurpose ‘Rainforest of The Sea’ mist and the iconic ‘Shape Tape Concealer’.
Founded by British beauty blogging stars Sam and Nic Chapman (a.k.a. Pixiwoo), Real Techniques creates high-quality makeup brushes and accessories that are popular with fellow bloggers and YouTubers.
Specializing in gorgeously glowy makeup, US brand Physician’s Formula is known for its complexion-perfecting foundations, powders and highlighters.
