Newbie - Best Cruelty Free Products (in Australia)

Unread post by Katrina84 »

Hi everyone

I have just signed up to the master makeup artist course and am in Perth (Western Australia).

Just wondering what everyone's recommendations are for cruelty free makeup brands that are either readily available in stores in Australia or can order online to Australia for the following:

Good Primer
Setting Powder or Spray
Blush & Bronzer
Eye liner (gel or long wearing)
Eye shadow

Katrina :D

I know that toofaced is definately cruelity free. If you really like a brand and wanna try some stuff.. just ring or email the company if they are giving you false information they just won't answer the question or answer yours with a question. Most companies aren't allowed to avoid the question now. Like where I live, they aren't allowed to test on animals now apprently so. :D

I hope that helps a bit. :S

Hi Katrina

I am a vegan and only use cruelty free vegan products. It depends on whether you want high end or not but here are some suggestions;

Good Primer- Personally I am a fan of a good moisturiser instead of a primer, so I recommend Graftobian's oxyderm for that purpose. However I do have Face of Australia HD primer and Face base primer, and Cover FX's anti aging in my kit, I also plan to get some jojoba oil for my kit for really dry skin particularly under the eyes for mature skin

Foundation- I use the RCMA sample palettes in VK 10 and 11 so I have a good range of colours, these can be purchased from Scotty's makeup if you are in Melbs or Sydney or online, they are versatile and super pigmented so can be used as a concealer, cream foundation or used with a thinner for a more sheer coverage.

Setting Powder or Spray- Kett HD translucent powder (online from Camera ready cosmetics, Too Face Primed and poreless loose powder for bridal, Australis make a good setting spray for everyday or for something more heavy duty blue marble setting spray available at Scotty's

Blush & Bronzer- I like Too Faced, Face of Australia, Australis, Elf and hourglass

Eye liner- Do yourself a favour and get some duraline from inglot, it turns any eyeshadow into a liner and wont budge. I also like Inglot gel liners and ELF for a good cheap option

Eye shadow- Inglot, Yaby, Lime Lily, Chi Chi, Sleek idevine palettes (from Lipstick republic) Ben Nye have an amazing basics palette, BYS have a Nude 1 and Nude 2 palette which is pretty good (unfortunately Urban Decay are now owned by Loreal so I won't buy the original Naked palettes as good as they are)

Some Drugstore cruelty free brands that are good;

Face of Australia
Models Prefer

Pro and high end cruelty free brands;

Ben Nye
Lime Lily
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Kat Von D
Too Faced
The Balm
Cinema Secrets

Hope that helps xx
