Vegan & gluten free make-up & beauty
Posted: Mar 03 2016
Vegan and gluten free. Two dietary terms that us Aussies are very familiar with, but what about when it comes to make-up and beauty? The trend picked up a few years ago, as awareness and demand for both grew slowly but surely, but it can still be tricky to source vegan beauty products with all natural ingredients, as well as make-up that’s certified as gluten free.
At Scotty’s Make-up, we have a section on our website for both vegan and gluten free products, so you can browse the brands that fall into each category quickly and easily, but just in case you haven’t explored those sections yet, here’s a list of brands and products certified as both:
The cool kid on the block, Dose of Colours has hit the make-up scene hard over the past year, and shows no sign of stopping! Several shades from the Dose of Colors cult Matte Liquid Lipstick collection are classified as both vegan and gluten free, as is the brands latest launch, a range of EyeDeal Duo’s containing primer and super-long-lasting pigment for the eyes.
Dose of Colours will also be available to buy at our Salon Melbourne booth (no.2042) this weekend, 5th–6th March 2016.
The original vegan cosmetics line, OCC has made it’s mark in the industry with it’s killer collection of shades, high pigment and professional, long lasting formulas that are all 100% vegan and cruelty free. The brand is even internationally certified by PETA. While not all products are certified as gluten free, many are, including OCC Stained Gloss in Nomad and OCC Lip Balm Duo in Tarred and Feathered.
While Kett has been around for years, their products are still the go to for artists working with HD and airbrushing, thanks to their hard working formulas that help create a flawless finish. Eight Kett collections are certified as vegan, ranging from the Kett Contour Series to the Fixx Creme Series (this covers about 46 different shades, including primary colours).
European Body Art (Endura)
A brand for FX artists and those who specialise in body painting, many of Endura’s alcohol activated palettes have been used on the Face Off TV Series for their unparalleled durability, high pigment, and wide selection of colors. Several palettes are certified as vegan, while the Character & FX palette - arguably the most versatile of them all - is also gluten free.
The home of beautiful make-up brushes, the London Brush Company have a vegan solid brush shampoo made with young coconut milk that’s so pure, its food grade, as well as a Nouveau brush collection that’s certified as vegan and gluten free.
