Nic’s Makeup Tips

Nicole GrochIf I can be cruelty-free in my professional work, I can encourage others to adopt a cruelty-free routine. You can achieve the same stunning and current, looks that are portrayed in all the glossy, fashion magazines using only cruelty-free products. Beware of companies claiming to be ‘cruelty-free’ as it not always entirely the truth e.g. the company might not test the finished product but they did test ingredients, or test the product at every step along the process, and/or they may be owned by a company which conducts animal testing.
