When you make the decision to go cruelty-free and/or adopt a vegan lifestyle, it can be difficult to know where to look when it comes to buying cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics. From well-known stores to dedicated ‘without harm’ beauty boutiques, I’ve rounded up 7 places for you to find your favourite cruelty-free and vegan makeup brands together with a list of which brands each website currently stocks.
Please note that not every product sold by the makeup brands mentioned will be vegan but each brand does stock vegan lines and, as far as I’m aware, they’re also cruelty-free. If you’re vegan, you’ll need to check the product individually before purchasing either by using the filters on the websites or by searching the brand’s own website.
