It’s that time again. Thoughts and activities are turning from summer fun to fall festivals, which means Halloween costumes and makeup may be on your mind. If you’re dreaming about dressing up as something bright, colorful, quirky, or chameleon-like for Halloween, we want you to have the vegan makeup you need. We’ve put together a guide to the top vegan and cruelty-free Halloween makeup products, so that you can cover your face without dealing with a potential cover-up of animal ingredients.
Here are some of the great, honest, and cruelty-free Halloween makeup products that you should use this year:
If you need to paint any part of your face or body white, opt for Manic Panic’s Supernatural Lily White Crème Foundation. This 100% vegan white makeup is cruelty-free and long-lasting. It can help you achieve the look you want while animals get to keep the life they want. Manic Panic’s Supernatural Lily White Crème Foundation is superb for all-over coverage. It can help turn you into whatever make-believe character you like while holding onto your good, true character inside.
Need to brighten up your eyes, cheeks, or lips for your Halloween costume? Monave offers two vegan colored eye shadow palettes that you might want to check out. They’re marketed for kids, but anyone can wear them and stay animal-friendly for the holiday. These eye colors are a great alternative to the ones you’ll find in costume stores. They contain gentle ingredients that can be used all over the skin, even close to eyes and mouth.
For bright red, plum, and orange lipstick, we love the ZuZu line by Gabriel Cosmetics. These luscious shades will leave you with soft, moisturized, and tantalizing lips and a good conscious. For a bold and dynamic look, go with the ZuZu Luxe Rapture Lipstick.
Should you need to cast a dark shadow across your lips, try Zosimos Botanicals’ Onyx Matte Black Lipstick. It’s available on Etsy, and it’s organic and vegan. This black, cruelty-free lipstick is ideal for those who like to appear mysterious, but not have mystery ingredients in their cosmetics.
Need to dye your hair for Halloween but want to do it naturally, and cruelty free? Again, turn to Manic Panic and choose from a rainbow of hues that aren’t tested on animals. Manic Panic’s hair colorings are vegetable based and totally vegan. They come in tons of temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent colors like neon pink and sapphire blue.
LUSH Henna also makes natural, vegan hair dyes. These colorings are a bit different from typical dyes, because the color wraps around your hair instead of soaking into each strand. This makes the shades intense when you first put them on, but after each washing they fade dramatically. LUSH never tests on animals and the henna dyes are completely vegan.
These products should get you off to a good start in celebrating a cruelty-free Halloween. Depending on where you live, you may be able to find a few of these vegan Halloween makeup products in a natural food or beauty store near you. If you can’t, you can almost certainly order them online.
