Best Cruelty Free Skincare, Makeup, and Hair Products

Best Cruelty Free Products

Here’s a list of some of my favorite cruelty free skincare, makeup, and hair products. Since, I’m new to becoming a cruelty-free advocate. I have been on the hunt for some good products. It’s been tough, but I have found many products that I fell in love with. These are products I used on myself and my clients. Everyone has different skin and hair issues, so be mindful that this may not work for you.

Everyone has a choice in life, I rather give my money to companies that are conscious. Some people may say that they’re not the ones who are hurting animals, but if you purchase products that are being tested on animal, then you are condoning it. They make money from the consumer, and WE ARE the consumer.

MARIO BADESCU Facial Spray $7

Mario Badescu Rose Water Spray is great to use in your skincare regimen. My face is on the dry side, so I use this to lock my moisterizer in before I start my makeup, and afterwards to set my makeup to give it that natural glowy, radiant skin that I love.

Blinc Mascara Amplified $26

This is a tube-technology mascara, meaning it will actually create small little tiny tubes that wraps around your eyelashes and will not smear.




Conscious brands
Milani Contour & Highlight Duo $11

Since my skin is currently dry, I like to use liquids and creams. I use this in my daily routine to give my face an appearance of higher cheekbones with a touch of luminosity.





Conscious makeup
The Ordinary Serum Foundation $7

My philosophy is to wear foundation as if it’s imitating real skin so it looks like you’re not wearing anything at all. Therefore, I prefer foundations to be sheer to medium coverage with a dewy finish. I like to mix The Ordinary Serum Foundation with a illuminating primer.

Eyeshadow Primer

Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer is the best primer I have ever used. It prevents creases and help your eyeshadow have a longevity.

A Full Guide to Disassemble and Reassemble Your Temptu Airbrush Gun

As a makeup artist, wedding season could be crucial. Every bridal party wants airbrush because of the longevity and natural wear. Cleaning your airbrush gun is essential, and here’s my method of how I give my Temptu airbrush gun a deep cleaning.

I like to mention that I no longer purchase cruelty-free makeup, but unfortunately still use the products that remain in my kit. Makeup is expensive and I can’t afford to toss it and buy new makeup. When I need to replace makeup in my kit, I will purchase all cruelty-free products.
