When it comes to makeup: if we love it we’ll probably be wearing it, even if it does contain a few nasties. Yet it’s always refreshing (and reassuring,) when we discover a brand that is as awesome, as it is good for us, and the environment.
Slapp writer Hannah, hunted down the top non-toxic makeup brands, for us to can slather on, without trepidation.

The experience Charlotte Tilbury has gained from a career as one of the most successful makeup artists on the planet is apparent throughout her makeup range. With a knack for providing makeup that adapts to the human face rather than the other way round, this relatively young brand has taken the makeup industry by storm. However, it’s not just the innovative science behind the products that has impressed us; not only is the Charlotte Tilbury range completely cruelty free, but many of the products, including the iconic magic foundation and light wonder foundations are in fact vegan. Furthermore, there is also an extensive list on the Charlotte Tilbury website which show all the products which are also free from parabens.

The Zoeva brand was born from a desire to provide high quality makeup brushes that didn't break the bank and this has now expanded to incorporate a vegan brush range. After becoming a YouTube favourite overnight, the brand has since branched out into a cruelty free makeup range, most of which is vegan. Zoeva is also taking a conscious stance on the toxicity of its products, with the majority of its formulas being 100% free of parabens, mineral oils, perfume and phthalates. Check out Zoeva here.
