The Beauty Brands You Can Feel Good About Buying

Now more than ever is the perfect time to be embracing natural, organic and cruelty free beauty products. Brands have made it a focus to aid ethical shopping and with a touch of science, are creating high-quality, even luxury products, that have a conscious without compromising.

Although I’m not a total convert (there’s a few products I will never give up), I can’t help but be impressed by the long list of benefits that natural beauty products offer. Most are formulated with a lot of skin loving ingredients so they work to nourish your skin while giving great colour payoff.

Most importantly, it’s what natural and vegan beauty products are created without that offers the real benefits. Our skin is our largest organ and has pretty impressive powers of absorbing up everything that gets put on it. Natural and vegan products take out any of the harsh and synthetic chemicals that could irritate or harm our skin as well as the environment in the process of their production.

Some great makeup brands for you to shop include:

RMS Beauty

Aussie’s do natural beauty great and RMS is a perfect example. Their products are all 100% natural and organic and the packaging is eco-friendly as well. Some hero products include the Luminizer X Quad and the Lip2Cheek tints.

Kjaer Weis

Founded by Danish makeup artist Kristen Kjaer Weis, this luxury brand uses only certified natural and organic ingredients to create their dreamy products. It’s also a focus of their brand to be sustainable and eco-friendly in the way they operate their business and produce their product. Their Cream Blush comes in a great range of shades and looks very versatile.

 

ILIA Beauty

The Canadian brand is committed to creating the purest products possible. They use certified organic bio-active botanicals in their products that nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Their products are also housed in recycled packaging so sleek you’d easily mistake it for that of a luxury product. The ILIA range has expanded a lot since it started but it’s their first product, the humble lipstick, that continues to grab attention.

 

Hourglass Cosmetics

Hourglass are known for their huge array of lux products but the brand is also proudly cruelty free with plans to be 100% vegan by 2020. While their formulas aren’t all natural, their focus on animal welfare is inspiring. I’m obsessed with their Ambient Lighting Bronzers and admire the limited edition Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette every time I drop past Mecca.

 

100% Pure

Their name says it all really. The brand has a huge array of natural products eyeliner to mascara to brow products and eye shadow. The most unique thing about the brand though is their use of real fruit pigments full of antioxidants to colour their products.

 

Other vegan and cruelty free products to add to your beauty bag include:

 

Urban Decay All Nighter Long Setting Spray

Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation

The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream
