So, you have decided to go vegan. It’s a big step, and it’s not just about what you eat. It’s a lifestyle.
However, these days, committing to a vegan lifestyle does not mean you have to compromise on beauty standards. Veganism is a growing movement, and more and more beauty companies are researching out vegan options.
Foundation is, well, the foundation of your entire look, and you should go for high quality in this area. So I did some research on which products actually work and here are six of my favorites.
1. Rock Candy Beauty 4K No Filter Foundation
This one tops the list as it is my favorite. If you haven’t tried spray on makeup yet, then this is the brand to introduce you to it.
Rock Candy Beauty is a 100% vegan and uses plant-based products that are all cruelty-free and organic. Their 4K No Filter Foundation comes in 16 shades, so it’s easy to find the right one to match your skin.
Also, spray on makeup makes it easy to blend different shades. You can blend the color and darken or lighten your foundation as the seasons change and your complexion lightens or darkens.
Rock Candy’s high-quality ingredients and proprietary blend are very lightweight. This makes a fine mist that can be built up in thin layers until you achieve the coverage you want.
Unlike with traditional foundation, which feels caked on after a few layers, your skin will be able to breathe. Rock Candy’s Starter Kit has everything you need to get started.
2. Zuzu Luxe Oil-Free Liquid Foundation
If you have oily skin, it can be a challenge to find something that does not turn completely shiney after a few hours. So if you are looking for an effective option which is vegan at the same time, then try this one.
Zuzu is designed to work with the natural undertones of your skin and gives medium to full coverage. There are ten shades to choose from, so you can easily find the one that works for you.
3. Valana Minerals Stardust Luxury Foundation
If you prefer a powder foundation, Valana Minerals is a great choice for you. You can use it as a foundation or powder.
This product has a built-in sunscreen and works as a concealer, too. It comes in a wide range of pigments that cover all undertones. Plus, it has over 20 different shades to choose from. They have an excellent sample range you can order to see which color works best for your skin.
4. 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Healthy Skin Foundation
This foundation is packed with goodies that help your skin. Ingredients include superfruits like Goji Berries and Aloe Vera help to improve the quality of your complexion.
These ingredients are full of antioxidants and help to keep your skin looking young. It also has a built-in sunscreen to protect the face from UV rays. The product provides excellent coverage, while still feeling light on your face.
5. Monavé Vegan Cream to Powder Concealer
This product is most popular as an under-eye concealer.
It is made to order hand pressed so if one of their 13 shades does not fit your skin, then they will custom make it for you. It’s really easy to use, and a little goes a long way.
6. Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
The proprietary blend combines light-reflecting gemstones and Amazonian clay as their secret weapon. The Amazonian clay helps with oil control and helps to make it long lasting. The tourmaline gemstone helps to add light and energize your skin.
If you are looking for a hypoallergenic option, then this is a good choice. The custom mesh applicator is very effective to cover redness and create a smooth, even finish. The coverage is breathable and light. It is long wearing, so it is excellent as a foundation to wear all day long and into the evening.
