Vegan Makeup

I would like to introduce myself and my blog.  Primarily I am attracted to the world of makeup because I like to dress things up.  I love color, texture, personality, and detail.  But along with my love for makeup, I also have a passion for living a natural lifestyle.  This means making my own soaps and cleaning products, eating organic whole foods, and trying to live a more chemical free life.  And so I try to incorporate this into my makeup kit.

I offer vegan options in my makeup kit and am always aware of ingredients in the products I use.  But because I work in special fx as well as beauty, finding vegan products is difficult.  I have a lot of opinions on makeup but I think the most important thing is being a conscious consumer.

I would like to share some of my favorite vegan products and/or natural products:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics- I’m in love with the Lip Tars from this company.  They apply like a lip gloss and have a finish like lipstick.  Amazing!                                                     http://www.occmakeup.com/

Urban Decay- My favorite for personal and professional use.  The Eyeshadow Primer Potion, the eyeshadows, 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils, and Lip Envy lipstain are the best.  Plus, they have all vegan items marked with a purple paw.  Go Urban!                                                                                                        http://www.urbandecay.com/vegan.cfm

Beauty Without Cruelty-  It is a great concept and I use items like the mascara which are hard to find in vegan options. http://www.beautywithoutcruelty.com/

Tarte- I recently discovered that Tarte has a spot on the website dedicated to vegan products.  They don’t have many but I want them all! http://tartecosmetics.com/tarte-shop-vegan-cosmetics

Blinc- Tube Technology mascara!  http://www.blincinc.com/#home
