Beautiful Bridal Makeup using only Cruelty Free Products....
A makeup artists kit is full of amazing products, high end luxurious cosmetics and professional products in the mix. A lot of companies are now becoming more conscientious and realising that actually we do not need to test on animals or use animal derived ingredients in makeup to make it work!
I for sure have found some holy grail cruelty free and vegan brands of makeup. What that means is that no animal has been harmed in the making of the product, ever. Some ingredients will still have been tested on an animal at some point, why would you need to if it is a 'safe' ingredient! Which does say a lot about what we do put on our skin if it needs to be tested on animals first.
Bride Ria (and her husband) are vegan and have strong ethics and beliefs about animal welfare. It was so interesting to hear Ria's journey to veganism, She wanted to find a hair and makeup artist who used CF products.
For bridal makeup you want it to look natural with your features beautifully enhanced, but it also needs to last! This is so important to me and with having to work with so many different skin types and tones I need to have a good variety of products.
Eyes: Arbonne eyeshadow, Pixi eyeliner, Individal lashes (synthetic), Arbonne Mascara, Lorac eye primer
Skin: Cover FX primer, skindinavia setting spray, Arbonne perfecitng liquid foundation, mineral powder, highlighter, inika bronzing illumintator, Arbonne lipstick

Another recent bride Cassie is also a huge animal lover and works with animals, big cats to be exact (lion's, tigers!). She also found me because she wanted someone to use CF products on her for her big day.
