Back in 2016, I decided to change my professional makeup kit and use cruelty free products. I was lucky enough to meet my now business partner at a wedding fair who told me all about some products which are cruelty free AND vegan. I gave them a try and was SO impressed!
The foundation – OMG! I’ve never achieved such a flawless base so easily until I used these. The coverage is incredible and in my photos, it looks like I have applied a filter! Amazing. What I really love is that the formula is so lightweight and let’s your skin breathe, and it’s the first foundation I have used in my life where I don’t need concealer most of the time! It. Stays. Put. Clients have slept in this, been to the gym, cooked Christmas dinner (hot oven air blasting their face), it doesn’t budge. Love love love it.
The primer is a complete dupe of Mac Prep + Prime, it gives a really silky finish, fills in fine lines and pores and gives a great base for your foundation to stick. Given the choice between cruelty free and non-cruelty free primer? It’s a no brainer.
I had never really tried powder foundation before, but I gave the Arbonne one a go in shade Bisque. If you love fuller coverage, this is a brilliant product. It can cover my winter red Rudolph nose and stay put even when wiping with a tissue, so on super bad skin days I use this.
The CC cream is a fab product if you are in a rush. It primes, hydrates, moisturises, conceals, corrects and does loads of other things. I like to team with mascara and blusher for an everyday look. It’s also great on a wedding job if I have a lot of bridesmaids!
If you wish to test any of these products and give them a go for a few days, you are more than welcome to borrow a bag from me. Drop me a message and we can get this sorted. Sharing is caring!
