Vegan makeup: The basics

veganmakeup:

This is a little list of some of my favourite vegan must haves and just some basic things that will help you if you’re newly vegan and need all new makeup!

There are actually a few companies who offer “starter kits” But the majority of them are mineral makeups, so if your preference doesn’t go that way (I can’t live without liquid foundation) then they may not be helpful to you! 
But here are some good vegan starter kits I’ve found:
Beneficial Minerals Co FRESH START
The All Natural Face 
Pink Quartz Minerals Starter Kit 
If you like Mineral foundations/eyeshadows Etsy is great!

Why are people so against veganism?

real-men-eat-plants:

I don’t get why people would take time out of their day specifically to attack veganism. Stuff like that “products made from cows” diagram are a prime example. Someone has spent a considerable amount of time making that, just to attack veganism. If I don’t like something (unless it’s something that legitimately needs addressing, such as racism, sexism, or homophobia), I just ignore it, I don’t go out of my way to attack it.

Yes, I get it, meat is tasty. I used to LOVE the taste of meat. But I can’t, in good conscience, eat something which is the very incarnation of cruelty to animals.

Yes, I know some vegans can be preachy. So can people from every group. Including meat eaters. For every vegan who’s told you that “meat is murder”, every vegan has experienced at least ten omnivores asking us where we get our protein, asking how we can’t love bacon, and telling us that animals are there for us to eat.

I’m not asking you to all necessarily go vegan, I’m just asking you to stop attacking vegans. Most of us aren’t preachy, most of aren’t unhealthy. In fact, most of us are pretty normal.
