Kat Von D Beauty
As you know, I love Kat Von D Beauty. Their eyeshadow formula is killer for me. The Kat Von D brand is currently formulating all of their products to be vegan, which is amazing!
Whether you’re a makeup artist looking to create a vegan kit, or a makeup enthusiast wanting great products, Kat Von D doesn’t disappoint. The list of vegan products is long!

I do hope that Kat Von D considers getting Leaping Bunny certification. I’d be thrilled to see that happen. Find out how easy it is to get Leaping Bunny Certified.
Bdellium Tools is a professional brush brand that makes anti-bacterial, eco-friendly vegan makeup brushes. They have pink, purple, green and yellow vegan brush sets. See my review of the Purple Sultry Eyes Set.
Blinc, whose name is inspired by the eyes, is the creator of tubing mascara. They have a ton of vegan products including the following:
- Eyeshadow Primer – which I need to try! I’m still searching for the perfect vegan eyeshadow primer that can last on my oily, hooded eyelids.
- Eyebrow Mousse – they have 9 shades available, including Auburn and Black
- Mascara – which comes in purple, green, blue, medium brown, dark brown, and black. I love that they offer colored mascara!
- Liquid Eyeliner
- Ultrathin Liquid Eyeliner
- Long Lash
- Shadow Fusion Palette
- Black Lash Primer
- Mascara Amplified
I could never get the hang of applying tubing mascara, but I have a few friends who swear by it.
Blot Beauty is a new to me brand. Their Luxe Lips matte liquid lipstick line is vegan and comes in 15 different colors.
Glamorous Chicks Cosmetics
I learned about Glamorous Chicks Cosmetics at the Makeup Show NYC last year when I went with Brittany. I love their products. Their Matte Liquid Lipsticks are vegan. I featured Glamorous Chicks in my BOMB makeup challenge.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
I was so disappointed to learn that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics wouldn’t be at the Makeup Show Orlando this year. However, Alcone will be carrying their line. They’re 100% vegan.
They have some of the best lip pencils that I’ve ever tried. Their RTW lipsticks are great. A little goes a long way. They’re easy to mix, which makes them ideal for a makeup artist kit. Their Loose Colour Concentrates are so pretty, too. See swatches of my Loose Colour Concentrates.
Gleam by Melanie Mills Hollywood
Melanie Mills Hollywood is a professional line created by celebrity makeup artist Melanie Mills. It’s cruelty free, paraben free, sulfate free, phthalate free, gluten free and 100% vegan. They’re even Leaping Bunny Certified! Gleam by Melanie Mills has a variety of products to help you get your glow on.
Bethany Townes Speaks About Vegan Beauty
Bethany Townes is the Educator for the Makeup Show. She wanted to share her insight into vegan beauty.
“Most people immediately think of the challenge of changing their diet or their wardrobe when they are taking those first steps into going vegan but actually makeup used to be one of the tougher things to transition. As of late there are so many amazing vegan products available in an array of options to everyone. It’s much easier to go vegan these days. (See my Easy Way to go Cruelty Free.)
Here are my two favorites:
I am a die hard fan of OCC Lip Tar/ Ready To Wear Liquid Lipstick which is 100% Vegan and Cruelty free and will be sold at the Alcone booth.
Vegan brushes are my new favs. With synthetic bristles and bamboo handles bdellium tools eco friendly set of brushes come in a variety of colors, without loosing any of the quality of a natural haired brush. These brushes are easily cleaned, hypoallergenic bristles and 100% cruelty free as well.”
James Vincent Speaks About Vegan Beauty
My favorite makeup artist James Vincent shared some words of wisdom when it comes to a makeup artist’s kit. He talks about vegan makeup products from a makeup artist’s perspective.
“For the professional artist having an understanding of the ingredients that make up your makeup product and the personal preferences of your client is essential to providing great service. As an artist working with many high profile vegan clients including Joan Jett, Pamela Anderson and Alicia Silverstone I have to always be aware of my clients comfort. I always work with cruelty free companies and will use an entirely vegan kit for my clients who live that lifestyle. Here are a few of my favorites and how I use them:
Melanie Mills Body Radiance – With just the right amount of gleam and glow this product is perfect under foundation for a natural glow, added on top of foundation for a touch of light and lift or on the legs and anywhere on the body for a beautiful skin perfection that looks like you just stepped off the red carpet. Try Rose Gold or the new Peach Deluxe shade for a look that is on trend and timeless
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner – For adding in soft definition or dramatic shapes this liquid liner allows even the most amateur of makeup wearers to get the perfect line every time. Try it in bold black or some of the beautiful color shades to bring it beyond basic. I love Kat Von D for committing to never testing on animals and this year she announced as she received an award from Farm Sanctuary that she is in the process of bringing the brand completely vegan.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar – The original liquid lipstick Lip Tar took this brand to international fame but their commitment to vegan cosmetics has been in place since they first started. Lip Tar is a highly saturated cream product that is perfect for lip and cheek. My favorite look for spring 2017 is their true red NSFW or their soft coral in Grandma. Press onto the lips with your finger for a kiss of color and then add the extra to the apple of your cheek for an easy everyday look. For more drama use a brush to apply it to full coverage and watch everyone around you react to your perfect pout.”
