MECCA Beauty is the holy grail when it comes to makeup and skincare shopping and is always overflowing with beauty fanatics. Sometimes it can be impossible to know where to start or which brand stand to venture to. Luckily, we have rounded down our top five, cruelty free, products that are affordable, top-quality and belong in your makeup bag.
- Drunk Elephant – The Littles 4.0
Every makeup bag needs some sort of skincare and we couldn’t recommend Drunk Elephant enough. The Littles 4.0 is the brand’s fourth edition of a mini skin care pack containing every product you need to have healthy glowing skin. In this pack you’ll find Drunk Elephant’s best-selling cleansers, serums and creams which hydrate, exfoliate and brighten the skin for both the AM and PM.
- MECCA MAX – Selfie Skin 2-In-1 Foundation and Concealer
Yes, you heard right, a foundation and a concealer all in one. The high coverage Selfie Skin 2-In-1 is true to its name as it leaves your skin with a radiant matte finish, perfect for taking selfies. The best part about this foundation is that it’s buildable, so whether you’re after a light natural look for the day or picture perfect glam for the evening, this product is your best friend. Super affordable too!
We also love that the entire MECCA MAX range is 100% vegan and cruelty free. Marita Burke, MECCA Brands Creative Director says: “MECCA MAX’s stance on 100% vegan and cruelty free is pivotal to our brand DNA and this is a value we share with our customers. Our collection contains no animal-derived ingredients nor does it undergo animal testing. We’ve done this without compromising on the performance of MECCA MAX products and the result of this is that we have a loyal community of animal lovers to share our beauty obsession with.”
- Urban Decay – Brow Blade
Microblading and eyebrow tattooing are all the rave at the moment but take a fair bit of commitment and a fair bit of moola. Luckily, Urban Decay’s brow blade, brings the exact same look, without leaving a permanent mark. Featuring a double-ended ink stain and waterproof pencil, the tool provides micro-definition and precision for flawless arches every time.
- Too Faced – Natural Nudes Intense Colour Coconut Butter Lipstick
Featuring a bold shade for every complexion, these Too Faced lipsticks belong in every handbag. Blending a balm texture with a lipstick pigment, the lippy can last for up to eight hours and is as lightweight and comfortable as can be. They also have a delicious coconut scent, in true Too Faced fashion.
- Bare Minerals – GEN NUDE Eyeshadow Palette
A makeup look isn’t complete without a pop of eyeshadow and Bare Minerals GEN NUDE is the perfect everyday palette. With six neutral shades featuring matte, satin and metallic finishes, the hues are designed to suit all skin tones.
