The Best Cruelty Free/Vegan Influencer Makeup Line You Need To Try
Jeffree Star Cosmetics has been a long time favorite of mine for a few reasons: it covers all the bases in terms of being cruelty free and vegan, which is the most important thing to consider when purchasing sustainable makeup while still being of the highest quality brands on the market. Star's makeup line got started with his Velour Liquid Lipsticks; matte, highly pigmented and comfortable on the lips, Star created a makeup artist quality product that was easy and wearable for both creative and natural makeup wearers alike.
Star is an OG in the beauty influencer world, and his makeup line is a testament to his years of experience in the industry. His shade "Androgyny" went completely viral when it launched; it was the perfect brownish reddish nude that was suitable for so many skin types, and was very in-line with what was popular at the time.
Furthermore, Star has created some of the most innovative shades and styles that have allowed people to really experiment with his collection. A newer metallic shade, "Thirst Trap" is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.
His "Skin Frosts," which are a collection of highlighters, come in shades that have seldom been done before; "Regina George," a magenta pink shade, and "Onyx Ice," a deep navy shade, are two stand out colors from the collection that speak to his ability to push the limits and break the mold.
However, he also caters to the everyday makeup wearer, with shades like "Peach Goddess" and "Dark Horse." Star knows how to play up an entire range of shades, ensuring that there is creative room for everyone, all while never compromising on quality.
One of my favorite pieces from Star's collection is the extensive line of accessories! He sells his infamous star handheld mirror in a variety of colors, as well as phone cases, makeup pouches and more! The pink handheld mirrors are definitely on my wish list!
While Star says on his website if you return something, it goes straight to "makeup heaven" aka the trash, there is an eco friendly way you can recycle empty tubes or palettes! Head to www.terracycle.com to learn more about how you can recycle or upcycle your waste!
