I have been a makeup-lover ever since I can remember. In 1st grade, I got in trouble for sneaking to school wearing lipstick. I had put in on before we left the house, and turned my head away from my mom the entire car ride so she wouldn’t catch me. When I transitioned to a vegan diet 2 years ago, I was honestly a little overwhelmed with the world of vegan beauty. I’m still learning, and making buying decisions, but I feel comfortable sharing a few vegan products that I love with you.

Here are my favourite vegan highlighters:

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Celestial $52 CAD

So this one is a little pricey but it’s so pigmented and beautiful that I think it’s worth it! Since you only need a drop, it will last forever. Look at that swatch, it’s honestly like liquid chrome for your face. But don’t worry, because it blends out like a dream. I like to put just the tiniest amount on the high points of my cheeks and down the centre of my nose, then blend it out with a damp sponge. I also sometimes mix 1-2 drops in my foundation for an overall glow.

As per the Cover FX website: Yes, all Cover FX products with the exception of MintTint FX & MintGlaze FX are vegan as well as cruelty-free.

Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Glow in Illumi-Naughty $33 CAD

This one is beautiful for a natural dewy look in the summer. It’s a wonderful, barely-there highlight that just brings sultry, wet look to your skin. Apply with your fingers on the high points of your cheekbones, all over the lid for a high-fashion glossy eye, or anywhere else you desire.

This product is labeled as Vegan on the Nudestix website.

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette $44 CAD

The photo really does not do this one justice. The colours are so spectacular in person, and they shift so beautifully when the light hits them. I know it doesn’t seem like a green/blue/pink/purple highlight would be wearable, but you’d be surprised. I like to layer the purple one with a more natural peach/gold highlight, and the mixture is stunning. It’s also lovely as an inner eye corner highlight, or over a matte liquid lipstick.

This product is labeled as Vegan on the KVD Beauty website.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit $52 CAD

This was an impulse buy or me, but it has made its way into my daily routine. First of all the pans are HUGE, so the bang for your buck is amazing. Second, the formula is amazing. It’s a powder highlight, which can sometimes look cakey, but these ones melt into your skin almost as well as a liquid.

This product has a Vegan symbol in the product description on the ABH website.

Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Thunderstruck $25 CAD

Again, the photo doesn’t really pick this one up. It’s a white/gold shimmer with the most gorgeous pink shift. Go sparingly with this, because it is meant to be an eyeshadow, so it’s super pigmented, but done right, it is absolutely gorgeous. They have even released it in a skin highlight palette for the 2017 holiday season. I like to use a setting spray over this one to make it melt into my skin better and look a little less powdery.

As per the KVD Beauty Website: “100% Cruelty Free Forever!#VeganAlert! These shades are vegan: Doce, Electric Warrior, Paranoid, Thrasher, Thunderstruck”
