Posted by for Beauty

Vegan beauty is expanding at a fast rate, and one easy way to change your beauty routine is to start with ethical make-up brushes.

With major brands changing their practises, newer sustainable brands getting traction, and a shift of values in society, it’s no wonder that people are switching up their make-up bags to make them more eco-friendly.

Not sure where to start? A simple first step is taking a look at the the unsung hero of your cosmetics purse – make-up brushes.
