While we tend to take everything Beyoncé says as gospel, there is one sentiment we don’t share; in our minds, pretty doesn’t have to hurt—especially when it comes to animals. This spring, embrace cruelty-free makeup, without sacrificing any of the vibrant hues and high-impact looks that you’re bound to see all over the streets (and, of course, Instagram). And simply because your makeup is kind to animals, doesn’t mean your look won’t be totally fierce. Think, bold swipes of fluorescent orange along your lash line or pops of pink on your pout. Think whatever you want; the sky’s the limit with these gorgeous beauty looks.
Look through the stunning photos below to see why pretty can actually feel good and why we’re happy to shine a light on the best of cruelty-free beauty.
