Cruelty-free makeup brands to choose from for your big day

Moving to cruelty-free products are one of the most grueling topics of our fashion industry today. While some may feel it’s okay to test on animals, animal lovers have always been against this idea and brands are moving towards make up and cosmetic products that are made without harming any species. It’s important to understand where you stand on this topic and make an informed move. There are amazing brands making equally good products while being conscious about the environment and now it’s our turn to give them a much required push.

Weddings are one of the biggest occasions of any girl’s life and we tend to buy a lot of makeup in the name of wedding shopping. While there’s nothing wrong in some indulgence, you could consciously choose products that have a better impact on the environment. Here are some cruelty-free brands that are available in India and brands that ship to India so you can splurge before your big day!
