Our cruelty-free beauty faves

We know GL readers love makeup, but we also know how much you all love to help out the environment.  Here are some easy ways to do both. All of the products below are from brands that are cruelty-free, meaning they don’t test on animals. PETA has lists of all companies that do and don’t test on animals, so if you’re curious about your fave brands, head to PETA.org for more info. Here are ours!

 

Yes to…

You’ve gotta love a brand that sets out to make quality stuff that you can get without emptying your wallet.  They “Yes to” brands have products for every skin and hair type, so they’ve gotcha covered no matter what your problem spots are. The Yes to Tomatoes pore scrub is gentle enough for every day (even on sensitive skin!), but it’s packed with tons of ingredients that send pimples packing.

 

Yes to Tomatoes Daily Pore Scrub, $10, target.com

 

Bare Escentuals

If you want a company that you’ll love for forever and a day, then Bare Escentuals is your new best friend.  This foundation is famous for being so good it makes your skin healthier the more you wear it.  Wow!  The powder packs a punch of minerals to help give your complexion a boost, all while keeping you shine-free.  Plus, the powder is so light, you’ll probably forget you’re wearing makeup altogether.  What’s better than that?

Too Faced

Eye shadow palettes are great ‘cause they give you a ton of colors for way less than you would spend getting each one individually.  Too Faced palettes are a bit of a splurge, but you get 9 colors that go with absolutely anything.  The palettes even include little cheat sheets that show you different ways to rock the shadows, so you’ll be pumped to pull it out at every opportunity.  This palette is a great way to get some basic colors in your makeup bag that you can always depend on.

E.L.F.

e.l.f is known for making products and tools that are perfect for beginners, so if you aren’t a huge lipstick fan, this company can get you on board.  They’ve made a product that feels as good as it looks.  You have the glam look of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss, and fab feeling of a moisturizer all wrapped up into one awesome tube.  You even get the benefit of awesome colors that you’ll be able to use anytime you want that extra oomph.

Sephora by O.P.I.

If you’ve ever had a mani in a salon before, you’ve probably been overwhelmed by the number of choices OPI offers.   There’s a color for every situation, from barely there pink to daring black, so you’ll always be able to find a color (or twelve) that you love.  Plus, the chip-free formula and the rich colors mean one bottle can last you forever.  What’s not to love?
