The Best Vegan Makeup Products for Brides
Planning a wedding can be stressful enough without having to worry about which products to use on your wedding day. If you’re a strict vegan, and wish to only use vegan makeup products on your wedding day, then here are our top picks of the best vegan makeup products that will keep you looking flawless and natural all day long.
A primer is an absolute must on a wedding day. You wont want to be worrying about your makeup sliding or fading, and a primer will help everything stay put and last until the early hours. This primer contains nourishing ingredients such as Organic Sweet Almond Oil and Kalahari Melon Oil to moisturise the skin and provide a plump, smooth base for foundation and concealer. It also has subtle iridescent particles which will give a gorgeous bridal ‘glow’ to the skin, making your skin look healthy and happy.
A good quality foundation can cover all manner of sins, especially if you have struggled with lack of sleep the night before your wedding! This silky textured foundation blurs fine lines and provides a soft focus finish to the skin. It can be built up in layers for extra coverage where its needed, or sheered out by applying with a buffing brush all over. It feels so lightweight on the skin, you wont even know you are wearing anything. Another bonus, it is 100% and 90% organic!
Woken up with a big, angry, red spot on you wedding day? It happens! Spots can be triggered by stress, and wedding planning is a stressful time. This full coverage concealer will effectively conceal dark circles, redness, spots, blemishes, scarring and pigmentation. A little goes a very long way, so beware, only a small amount is needed to effectively cover unwanted discolouration. The formula is also infused with botanical extracts to help to heal the spot and protect the skin during wear.
A pretty blush can instantly lift the features and make the skin look healthy and alive. These Hynt Beauty blushers have a subtle shimmer to them, which reflects the light and looks beautiful in photographs and in daylight. Apply to the apples of the cheeks and blend outwards towards the hairline for a pretty flush of colour.
Matte eyeshadows work well for a wedding day because they naturally enhance the eyes without making you appear overly ‘made up’. These ZAO Makeup eyeshadows are long lasting, easy to blend, and available in a range of colours to define the eyes. Apply a neutral beige all over the eyelid, and then follow with a dark brown along the lash line to make lashes appear thicker. I also always recommend starting with an eye primer to ensure the eyeshadow doesn’t crease or fade throughout the day.
The perfect ‘wedding day lipstick’ is one that is long lasting, doesn’t feel drying and isn’t likely to bleed or smudge throughout the day. These lipsticks are creamy, moisturising and long lasting to provide all day colour, without drying out the lips. Available in 10 different shades, from deep violet to neutral beige. Our favourites for a wedding day are ‘Tahnee’, ‘Pania’, ‘Amiria’, and ‘Nyree’.
Even if you aren’t a liquid eyeliner wearer, wearing a small amount on your wedding day can really enhance and define your eyes, which is especially important for photos. This eyeliner has a thin brush to draw along the lash line to create the appearance of thicker lashes. The jet black colour looks flattering on all eye colours, just keep the line really thin for more of a natural look.
Multi purpose products are life savers when it comes to touching up your makeup on a wedding day. These cream palettes provide a highlighter, blush/bronzer, eyeshadow and lip colour in a variety of different colours. Our favourite for brides is the palette ‘Bijou’, the beautiful bronze shades are perfect for adding shimmer to the eyes, and the coral colour adds a pop of colour to the cheeks and lips. The highlighter shade looks stunning on the top of the cheekbones and in the inner corner of the eyes to brighten the eyes. Make sure one of your bridesmaids pops this in their handbag so you can touch up during the day!
