i almost never wear makeup. i am one of those people who if they brush their hair before they leave the house feels like they are winning at life.

i do on occasion feel the need to look presentable and i realized the other day while applying my limited supply of makeup to go out, that other than the mascara which is semi new, the rest is probably several YEARS old.

can someone recommend a cruelty free brand that is not horribly expensive and easily available. online would be awesome but target, grocery store, cvs is also good. i wont shop at wal mart though.
it doesnt have to be vegan as long as its cruelty free but bonus points for vegan.

i typically use mascara, some sort of face powder stuff, and a concealer thingy. the one i have now is a brush and you turn the base and cream goos up but i have used a stick in the past. no preference.

i am blonde and very fair in complexion so it would need to be available in pasty girl colors which usually is no issues.
i was also thinking of maybe getting lip gloss. and if i was feeling really crazy one eye shadow but i have no idea what colors are "cool" right now and what would look good on me.

HALP

What you would generally want to google drugstore brands.
This link has a good run down, Elf is really the only one I'm aware of but not all of theirs is vegan.

I thought elf was all vegan except one line of brushes?

Elf is cheap enough and has deals often enough that you can buy a pile of stuff and if something doesn't work for you, it's not a big deal since you only dropped like $3 on it. So keep that in mind for buying online.

Beyond that I'm no help with American drug store brands

I could be wrong about Elf, I thought some of the lipsticks weren't.

ETA: Found this which indicates all their makeup is vegan

Take a look at logical harmony's site. She has a list of cruelty free brands and a list of cf brands sold at target!

The thing I find as a non lipstick wearer is that I'm so unused to having it on that I smear it or wear it off without noticing! I think the lip tars which really stay on are good to minimise this. OCC's lip tars have worked well for me even without the primer. (http://www.ebay.com/gds/How-to-Apply-OC ... 525/g.html)

I'm assuming you might rub your eyes also if you're not used to having make up to worry about so I suggest stuff that won't smudge or shift.

For eyeshadow to stay on it is well worth investing in good eyelid primer for a base. I have several which I've had for ages so you'd need to check they are still vegan (I think the urban decay one changed a while back) but I also have Fergie's 'take on the day' (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Wet-n-Wild-Fe ... z/33753900) and the excellent Blinc one (http://www.sephora.com/eye-shadow-primer-P379441 or http://www.blincinc.com/shadow/eye-shadow-primer)

Blinc's liquid eyeliners are really amazing and smudge proof, the black ultra thin one is great once you get the technique to make it a very fine line but the others come in paler colours which might suit you better. Their pencils are pretty good at staying put too though not as good of course.

Finally when you next need mascara consider ordering from Blinc as it really does stay on! It coats the eyelashes in a different way to most. (http://www.blincinc.com/lashes/mascara-duo-gift)

If you're ordering a few things from Blinc they sometimes have special offers or freebies. (http://www.blincinc.com)

Also they have trial sizes of mascara and eyeliner which would be a good size if you don't use it much, but I don't think they have the brown colours in trial size (you can often find them online elsewhere, not just on the Blinc website - http://www.perfectskindirect.co.uk/Prod ... .php?m=812).

thanks everyone! so it sounds like Elf is a cruelty free brand available widely and predominantly vegan???

it's funny you mention rubbing makeup off accidently if you're not using it. one of the challenges i have with mascara is it seems to always end up leaving small bits under my eyes. i dont *think* im rubbing it but i do know whenever i wear mascara it always make me feel like i need to shut my eyes a lot like a really big blink or something weird.

thanks guys i found a decent Elf display at Target. why is it so cheap! holy crepe! everything was $2-$3 when every other brand everything is like $8+

it was really awesome to know what brand i was looking for rather than wandering around the makeup aisle like a deer in the headlights for a million hours lost.

i got some lip stain thing (no idea what that even means) and some concealer thing that on one end is a concealer and the other end is "glow"
NO IDEA what that means but im gonna look all amazing and shiitake
