Behind the scenes: Cruelty-free makeup and skincare at our November shoot

, , ,

Which cruelty-free makeup and skincare products put a shine on the latest issue’s fashion spread?

In the November issue of the magazine, the creative team behind the fashion shoot put together an entirely sustainable spread. Hoping to conduct a shoot that was ethically and consciously created, everything from hair to shoe was carefully chosen.

Onset, makeup artist Polina Perminova used cruelty-free makeup brands, to ensure an ethically gorgeous finish for each look the team created. This didn’t rule out creativity or bold looks, with the animal-friendly products complimenting the gorgeous model perfectly.

B3 Matte lip balm

Give your lips a little more love this season with B3’s lip balm. The hyper-hydrating balm is formulated using healing ingredients and will soothe lips. It’s matte, but won’t matte-ify your lips or leave them flaky. You can also use the balm for cuticles, hands, or a dry skin moisturiser. €15.95.

Spectrum 10-piece essential set

A staple for anyone’s makeup kit, whether you’re a novice or an expert. The set includes every brush you need to create a flawless base and gorgeous accents. Every Spectrum brush is vegan and cruelty-free, made with quality synthetic hair that is soft and effective for application. The set costs €56.
