So there you have it.  Shopping from any one of these companies will ensure a guilt-free beauty experience.  I know that I prefer to shop from 100% vegan brands.  I have learnt a lot whilst researching this post and have definitely found some new brands that I want to try.  In the coming weeks I will write a similar post about brands that, although are not 100% vegan, have some excellent vegan makeup products on offer.  In the mean time check out my vegan, natural, and allergy-friendly make-up look which includes products from both 100% vegan brands and vegan-friendly brands.

I used each brand’s website to research their eco-policies.  If you think I have missed any, please let me know 🙂
