Now more than ever, high-quality, cruelty-free makeup is available everywhere, so you no longer have to worry about whether your makeup has been tested on animals. Now that that one kindness is out of the way, you’ll have plenty of room to be absolutely terrible to everyone else. Here are our favorite cruelty-free brands that you can be just a massive bitch in:
Thrive was designed from the ground up as a cruelty-free makeup brand that also donates part of their profits to fighting systemic racism. So once you’ve gotten that out of the way, you can put on your face and head outside where you can pick a fight with your waiter while refusing to wear a mask (it messes up your makeup!). Don’t worry – these things karmically even out!
Aesop is another sustainable, cruelty-free brand you can put on knowing you are going to alienate a loved one tonight. After you casually tell your family that your sister’s husband has been cheating on her and that she “deserves it,” reapply some sustainable lipstick while muttering, “What? I’m just saying what we’re all thinking.”
Barefaced products are ethically and sustainably sourced with certification from PETA and the Vegan Society. You have certification from the Bad Bitch Club, which is a weird thing to brag about, but there you go again telling people “I just say what’s on my mind” as if that’s a good thing. All the cruelty-free makeup in the world won’t make your maid of honor trust you again!
Use these to dab cruelty-free concealer onto other people’s facial flaws in public while saying, “Don’t worry, sweetie – this makeup is cruelty-free.”
If you’re looking to be more ethical with your consumer purchases, try any of these brands to promote cruelty-free practices in everything except your own personal life. Now go off, bitch!
