When you’re getting ready for your special day, cosmetic and skincare products are your best friend. If you’re looking for cosmetic brands you can feel good about supporting, it’s best to go for eco-friendly brands that try to reduce their impact on the environment and don’t test on animals. Here are ten eco-friendly brands to support when shopping for your wedding day products. 

Tarte

Tarte walks the line between drugstore and high-end with its reasonable price and stellar performance. Tarte is completely cruelty free, and they only use sustainably harvested ingredients in their products. We recommend Tarte’s Amazonian Clay foundation and concealer line for the polished, smooth look you want. 

LUSH

LUSH is one of the powerhouse brands behind the cruelty-free cosmetics movement, and they make a point to cut unnecessary packaging and recycle their empty containers. LUSH bath bombs and bubble bars are great for treating yourself to a relaxing bath the night before your wedding, and their all-natural skin and hair products are sure to make you feel like a goddess before you walk down the aisle.

True Botanicals

True Botanicals was born out of one woman’s frustration with the beauty industry after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She dedicated her life to creating potent, natural beauty products with the consumer and the planet in mind. True Botanical’s skincare line is simple, natural, and effective, and their glass packaging can easily be reused or recycled.

Ilia

Illia is a brand truly dedicated to improving the beauty industry’s impact on the planet. Not only do they use recyclable materials for all their packaging, but they also take mailed in makeup packaging from any brand and recycle them responsibly to keep more waste from ending up in landfills. If you live in the US and wand to declutter before your wedding, you can mail in up to five empty makeup packages a month. 

Each & Every

Each & Every is a proud vegan and cruelty free personal care brand that only uses clean and natural ingredients and sugarcane packaging, so you can feel good about supporting their business while treating yourself before your special day. 

Pacifica

Pacifica is a more affordable option for radiant makeup and skincare products. They’re 100% cruelty free and vegan, and they use natural ingredients with no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or other nasties. We recommend Pacifica’s gorgeous eyeshadows and lip colors. 

E.l.f Cosmetics

There’s no shame in going drugstore, especially when the brand is cruelty free. E.l.f is one of the most well-known cruelty free cosmetics brands out there, and their vegan makeup brushes are great for anyone shopping on a budget. 

Authentic Beauty Concept

Authentic Beauty Concept is a haircare brand that values sustainability and natural, effective ingredients. Their products are free of microplastics and mineral oils, and the guar used in their products comes from the guar bean farmers of the Sustainable Guar Initiative of India. 

Lilah B.

Lilah B. was founded with the goal of helping people declutter their makeup routines. This brand’s cruelty free products come in minimalist all-white packaging, perfect for your wedding day lineup. They also offer a mail-in recycling program so you can declutter your makeup and skincare products without contributing to landfills. 

PRIIA

PRIIA is a cruelty free and vegan brand focused on making acne-safe mineral makeup products. If you’re prone to acne, PRIIA’s products are designed with you in mind. Their products don’t clog pores or inflame acne like other cosmetic products, and even the most sensitive skin won’t be irritated by these products.
