Vegan Makeup For Your Beach Day Looks
Good vegan makeup can be hard to find, while it's still something the beauty industry trying hard to perfect and make more accessible. Just like getting greenwashed, we don’t want to fall into the trap of none fully vegan products. We are becoming more conscious than ever as consumers, increasingly choosing to follow a vegan lifestyle from food to clothing choices right down to the foundation we put onto our skin. When it comes to makeup were talking no animal testing, no beeswax extracted, and no pigment from beetles which is shocking how it is still done in 2022.
What are your makeup pool essentials? From waterproof mascara to a hint of concealer, there's nothing wrong with a bit of makeup around the pool, do whatever gives you confidence. While a few years ago vegan makeup was not only hard to find but let’s be honest not the greatest. Now we are spoiled with products from pigmented dreams to glowy skin.
