I use a very wide variety of professional quality makeup products in order to suit all my client's bespooke and individual requirements. If there are any special requests such as a particular brand, please just ask and I will be as accomodating as possible.

All of the items that I buy for my kit are cruelty free.  This means I do not support brands that test on animals nor brands that sell their products in countries that require amimal testing by law. Vegan makeup is a separate thing, please let me know if you need vegan friendly makeup because, for example, there are cruetly free brands that may use an ingredient such as beeswax.  All glitter produts that are in my kit are vegan and eco friendly.

Here are just some of the Cruelty-Free brands that my kit includes;

3ina / Ardell / Bare Minerals / Barry M / Becca / Bellapierre / Eyeko / Gosh / Illamasqua / KIKO / Kryolan / Nip & Fab / NYX / Urban Decay / Sleek / Smashbox / Stargazer / Stila / Tarte / Too Faced
