Here Are 10 Vegan Beauty Brands You Need To Know About

1. Honest Beauty

Honest Beauty has an incredible line up of products that cover a variety of skin and makeup needs. Created by Jessica Alba, several of the products in this lineup have rave reviews (my personal favorite is the liquid lipstick!) and have an affordable price point compared to other brands.

2. Milk Makeup

Newer to the field, Milk puts its money where its mouth is. Milk was created by none other than Milk Studios- a photography studio from New York City. Customers have had a lot to say about Milk’s line of products- from their Lip+Cheek blush/lip color combo to their holographic sticks. Their sleek and simple packaging catches the eye, but the makeup itself speaks volumes.

3. E.L.F Cosmetics

Going the vegan route can add up quickly, and can often be the biggest factor in switching from a cheaper brand to an ethically minded one. E.L.F has been a drugstore staple for years, but most are unaware that every product in their selection is free of animal products! Making the switch to a vegan brand doesn’t have to break the bank.

4. Youth to the People

While this company doesn’t have a makeup line, that hasn’t stopped skincare fans from snatching them up! You won’t find soap, parabens, fragrances, or sulfates in any of their products- which is something to note given how common they are with other companies. You will, however, find ingredients such as kale, spinach, green tea, and a host of other easy to read items so that you know exactly what’s going into your skin.

5. Inika Organic

Inika has been a consistent runner in terms of favorite vegan beauty brands- and it’s easy to see why! Their products are consistently rated as long-lasting and getting the job done. They make it beyond easy to believe that choosing to go organic and vegan doesn’t mean compromising quality in the process!

6. EcoTools

While investing in makeup and skincare products is important, so are makeup brushes and tools. EcoTools are eco-friendly and sustainable, and they go out of their way to ensure no animal products are part of the brushes that help you start your day! You can feel just as good about what you’re using to put on your makeup as you do the products that go on your body!

7. Pacifica Beauty

Pacifica covers so many different aspects of beauty and skincare (it started as a company founded by Brooke Harvey-Taylor and focused on essential oil candles), but their makeup line doesn’t take a backseat! One of the most talked-about aspects of Pacifica is how it not only is 100% vegan and cruelty-free, but it works exceptionally hard to ensure no strange chemicals are part of the process. They pride themselves on being as natural and organic as possible, which only makes the products more appealing.

8. Cover FX

Cover FX has become a staple for many- even those who are unaware that its selection is mostly vegan! Dedicated to taking care of your skin as well as making it look amazing, Cover FX has a wide range of products that can be easily customized to work for your skin type. With plenty of insight from dermatologists and clean ingredients, it’s no wonder there is so much hype surrounding the brand!

9. LUSH Cosmetics

LUSH is mostly known as the creator of the popular bath bomb, but their range doesn’t simply stop there. From skincare, bathing products, makeup, fragrance, and more, LUSH has something for everyone. Not to mention that almost the majority of their products are vegan, and 100% are free from animal testing.

10. Lime Crime

Who said makeup has to be boring? Lime Crime has long been a vegan fave, given its reputation for breaking boundaries and providing bright hues and daring tones, there is no excuse not to get a little wild- and rest assured that no animals were harmed in the process.
