Affordable Cruelty-Free MakeUp Brands You Should Know About

Shopping for cruelty-free makeup can be a bit of a headache when you’re first getting started. Over the years I’ve tried many brands a few and have always returned to my favourites. And most of those are extremely budget friendly. The only thing I spend “money” on is foundation and mascara, and I rarely steer away from my holy grails, but I have another post about my favourite products to come!

This is to share with you some of my favourite cruelty-free beauty and makeup companies that won’t break the bank and are, in many cases, just as good the more expensive brands out there. See Jeffree Star’s review on the E.L.F Poreless Putty Primer if you don’t believe me! The best part?ย They’re all easily accessible and most of them vegan-friendly too!

Shopping cruelty-free doesn’t have to be expensive, especially not when it comes to makeup! So I really hope this helps you out if you’re a little overwhelmed and not sure where to start. If you’re ever in doubt, my advice would be toย head to Superdrug! They carry 90% of these brands and you are never more than a stone’s throw away from a cruelty-free company in their stores.

Until next timeย โ™ก

      You should definitely give them a go. Their palettes are great and really well priced.

      It really is! You don’t need to break the bank anymore. I don’t think I’ve stepped foot in a high-end store for at least 2yrs!

      Really surprised to hear so many know of Essence too. Their branding is a little child-like, but they’re a fab company! Their whipped mousse foundation is one of my favourites!
