5 Cruelty-Free Make Up Essentials (That Won't Break the Bank!)

Updated on January 3, 2018

5 Top Cruelty Free Bargain Buys

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer Wand ($3.49)

NYX is a PETA certified drugstore brand that really lives up to its hype. The HD concealer wand is the holy grail of concealers: it lasts all day and a tiny amount spreads far enough to successfully cover blemishes. Try using two shades together to create a budget contouring kit.

e.l.f Baked Highlighter ($4.00)

Baked highlighter by e.l.f is by far one of the best budget powder highlighters on the market. As it's a powder you only need to use a tiny bit each time and it's the perfect choice for oily skin, as it adheres better than cream or liquid. Use sparingly for a perfectly polished daytime look. Like NYX, e.l.f. has the PETA seal of approval, so you can look gorgeous guilt free.

EcoTools 6 Piece Starter Set ($13.90)

Let's face it, brushes are not any area you want to skimp on. Fortunately, at just under $14, these 100% vegan brushes are perfect for burgeoning MUAs. The starter kit includes a massive powder brush (ideal for powder foundation), concealer brush, an eye shadow brush and angled liner. It also comes with a neat little bag for holding it all together.

The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream ($12)

This cruelty free, light-weight BB cream is perfect for problem skin. Unlike other BB creams, this glides on easily and doesn't cake like some similarly priced products. Use in conjunction with The Body Shop's Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion ($9) for the best results.

Bare Minerals Matte Liquid Mini ($10)

At just $10, this is an absolute steal. Long-lasting and in a range of strong colours, this lip stain will take you from day to night: you can even mix the colours together to create your own unique looks. It's also the ideal size to take on a night out.
