Ecotools are some of the softest, most affordable brushes, and the best part is that not a single animal hair was harmed in the making! This Day to Night Set is a great assortment of six key brushes. I use their powder brush all the time, and it's remained very soft and enjoyable to use. Apply all your cruelty-free makeup with these cruelty-free brushes!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has been vegan and cruelty-free from the beginning, and if you think they skimp on boldness, you're dead wrong! Their lip tars are one of my favorite products, and the colors will blow your damn mind.

Both a natural and cruelty-free line, Tarte carries several of my faves, and not a single product harmed an animal. Their Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting Powder is a nearly identical—and cruelty-free!—alternative to Make Up For Ever HD Setting Powder. And their Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blushes? Yeah, let me just gush about those for 12 hours.

I love that one of my favorite affordable brands, NYX Cosmetics, is also cruelty-free! They make products that feel high-end, but at drugstore prices. I love the blendability of their HD Photogenic Concealer.
