Your guide to finding cheap vegan makeup in the UK

Perhaps we’ll just skip the tangent on how the UK is a vegan utopia today, and get right to the good stuff.

UK beauty enthusiasts looking for affordable vegan makeup need not worry, as there’s no shortage of budget-friendly vegan options readily available in the area. A number of examples follow.

elf makeup


Coveted, famed, cult-followed beauty brand e.l.f. has earned its popularity among vegans and non-vegans alike, not just because it happens to be 100% vegan friendly.

The budget brand is famed for making surprisingly good products at an exceptionally low price.

b makeup


Superdrug in-house brand B. also happens to be entirely vegan.

This is a great go-to collection for quality basics, such as brow kits, foundation and some particularly high-impact blush — so don’t use a heavy hand unless you want to go out looking like a clown.

Nothing against clowns, but you’ve been warned.

Barry M Makeup
