Thankfully, with a more conscious world we’re starting to live in, people have become more mindful of their surroundings and environment. Anyone can choose to be a healthy eater. The question falls on who’s equally aware when they’re pulling beauty products off the shelf at their favorite cosmetics counter? Our skin is just as important on the outside, as our bodies are on the inside. With these vegan-friendly beauty buys, you will no longer depend on the toxins that you once thought were a necessity to your everyday life.

Skincare | Josie Maran effortlessly boasts about its eco-friendly status. Being 100-percent organic, you will have the run of the mill of a variety of products to try without having to worry about damage or reactions to toxins. Begin with the Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub (animal-friendly so it won’t leave those nasty plastic beads), follow with the Argan Whipped Body Butter, and you can even use Bear Naked Wipes at the end of the day to get rid of your makeup. How’s that for efficient shopping at one location?

Foundations | Everyone has their foundation preference. But that doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on its vegan-status. Choose from NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation, Cocoa Powder Foundation from Too Faced, or Kat Von D’s Lock-It Foundation.

Makeup Goods | What’s the point in covering your face in animal-friendly foundation and skincare if the rest of your makeup isn’t as environmentally aware? To add a touch of color to your eyes, try Bare Minerals READY Eyeshadow 4.0, which, luckily, is not tested on animals or a hint of color to your lips with Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick – she’s all about the environment. Finish your palette with one of those cute little Tarte Cheek Stains to add a hint of blush.
