Sustainability and Eco-Awareness is a beauty trend that isn't going away anytime soon. From clean ingredients to packaging to messaging, here's our favorite eco-friendly makeup brands we've put together a list of the top sustainable and cruelty-free makeup brands so that you can go the whole (meatless) hog.
With a client-base that ran the spectrum from ordinary women to supermodel Bar Rafaeli, Makeup Artist Natasha Denona noticed a demand for products that bridged the technological savvy of a makeup artist’s kit with the ease of everyday makeup. We're huge fans of her Diamond and Blush Palette, which has colors for every skin tone and really helps create that glow effect.
Believing that you can have high performing makeup products that are clean, Cover FX is an awesome sustainable brand. Not only does the brand believe that sustainability is better for the environment, but also for your skin. Their vegan formulas are filled with amazing ingredients like algae and green tea to make your skin feel radiant. We love their Pressed Mineral Foundation for a flawless but lightweight finish that looks natural and healthy.
Despite the names of their products, Game of Thrones fans can assure you that no actual dragons were harmed in the formulation of Rodial's industry famous skincare products. 100% Cruelty free, Rodial is definitely one of our top picks for premium sustainable beauty. Personally, we love their Pink Diamond Instant Lifting Serum for a noticeable lift that creates a more youthful look, with diamond powder that gives the skin a healthy glow.
Known for their clean approach to beauty, bareminerals is also completely cruelty free. The cult brand is extremely conscious of the ingredients that go into their world renowned products, using non of the toxic chemicals in traditional makeup including micro-beads, triclosan or mineral oil. Our top pick has to be their Multi-Tasking Minerals Foundation. The ultra-light powder gives full coverage without blocking the pores, and also protects against UV Rays with SPF20.
Eyeko's revolutionary formula takes on a fresh new approach to creating lengthened lashes by tubing them instead of coating them to ensure maximum amplification. Making sure that none of their fabulous formula goes to waste, the brand packages their mascaras in a squeezy tube (think toothbrush) so that it never dries up and even the very last drop can be used. Which is why their Black Magic Mascara is enriched with keratin and shea butter to promote natural grow as well as defining each individual lash.
