I am slowly but surely replacing all my makeup with cruelty free alternatives and where possible plastic free ones too. We see a lot in the press about plastic free everything, by makeup is often overlooked. Much or our makeup includes not only animal products, but also plastic, and that’s without even thinking about the mass packaging used. I’ve listed below a few of my favourites when researching plastic free makeup and figured I’d share them with you guys in case you were also looking to use less plastic in day to day life.
All Earth Mineral Cosmetics
I love All Earth Minerals because they have a whole range of plastic free makeup options available. They are made in the UK (near my glorious Cornish hometown! ) Are all vegan and cruelty free.
Their packaging is 100% biodegradable, sustainable and recycled.
Wishlist Pick – Mineral Finishing Powder
Obviously I don’t think I need to explain what LUSH is to anyone… if you don’t know the brand LUSH then have you literally been living under a rock? I love aspects of LUSH in that it uses cruelty free production, and now has lots of plastic/packaging free ranges. One of my favourites are the shower gels and shampoo bars!

Zao sell a host of lovely makeup items in refillable pots with individual refills purchasable, saving waste and reusing the small amount of plastic in the packaging.
