Bright and Beautiful: Spring/Summer Vegan and Cruelty Free Makeup

FACE

MUA Professional Correct & Conceal Light Palette.jpg

Girls and guys, I am seriously all over this. This Correct and Conceal palette comes in 12 shades that can be used on their own or blended together. I use concealer very sparingly as I find that it often sits in fine lines and doesn't do much else, but the peach in this palette offset the dark circles under my eyes like no other and the green completely neutralised a red patch I had on my cheek. A seriously excellent product which comes with lots of shades and at £6, is affordable too.

Dry Eye Concealer Resized.jpg

Free from nasties and with light reflecting particles, this ultra light concealer has been created with those with sensitive eyes in mind. You can use it everywhere on the face, under makeup and over it or wear it on its own. Its blendable formula melts into the skin, without leaving any marks. Perfect to pop in your handbag and touch up throughout the day. £11.95

Arbonne Foundation.jpg

This medium coverage foundation glides on the skin and corrects small imperfections, leaving it looking radiant and feeling moisturised. It contains SPF 15, which makes it ideal to use in the warmer months, and comes in a good choice of shades, for all skin colours and tones. £37

Green People Tinted Moisturiser.jpg

I find that whilst tinted moisturisers are great to use in Spring and Summer, many simply don't add enough coverage. This by Green People leaves the skin feeling really soft and adds a good amount of tint, giving you a uniformed finish that's natural and looks 'makeup free'. Fab when the sun's out thanks to the addition of SPF 15, and for those who never like to go out without a base. £36

Prism Holographic Highlighter Solar Flare Front.jpg

This gorgeous pressed powder adds luminosity to your complexion. Wear on its own to highlight cheeks, nose bridge, chin and forehead, or on top of your favourite foundation. Perfect for days when the skin is looking a little sallow or lacks radiance. £6

Arbonne Translucent Setting Powder.jpg

After applying foundation, set your base with a good powder. Make sure it's  lightweight and translucent, like this one by Arbonne. Dust a thin veil and you are ready to go. £31

Luxe Powerbrow Long Wear Sculpting Brow Gel Mid Brown Box.jpg

This eyebrow tint is so easy to use thanks to the brush application. It's small, compact and mess-free, so you can carry it in your bag all day for touch-ups. Not that you'll need them, because this tint doesn't smudge or transfer. It comes in six shades - from very light to very dark - and couldn't be easier to use. £4

Eyes

Pure Anada Pure Nude.jpg

This is the palette per excellence to create a stunning and natural 'nude look'. It comes with four matte and satin mineral eyeshadows which can be worn on their own or blended together, and a shimmery bronzer which can be used as a blusher, bronzer, shadow or to lightly contour. Gorgeous for Spring and Summer. £38.50

MUA 15 Shade Palette Spiced Charm Front.jpg

Lips

Kat Von D Beauty STUDDED-KISS_SILO_Crush.jpg

I can't go near Kat Von D Beauty's makeup counter without wanting to buy everything, in particular the lipsticks. They come in a huge variety of gorgeous shades, last all day and I love their creamy texture. Crush is a hot pink that suits most skin tones and is fab for a summery pop of colour. £15.30
