Below I’ve compiled a few of the best vegan foundations from experience as well as reviews, don’t worry they are vegan and cruelty free so enjoy!
I’ve also listed at least one downside to each product in my opinion but remember what doesn’t work for one might work for another.
Foundations come in 3 different forms which are liquid, cream and powder. People sometimes choose these different forms of foundation depending on their preferences as well as their skin type.
Don’t you feel great knowing that there are products out there that know you don’t have to hurt these creatures in order to create a excellent item and also could prove healthier for your skin as they don’t contain as much harmful ingredients. Cool right?
Whether your looking to switch to vegan, which is amazing, or looking for something new to benefit your skin or something you couldn’t find in your current foundation, read on and hopefully you might find a product that makes you go ‘hmmm intereting’!

Too faced born this way foundation
The things I like about this foundation is that firstly it’s free from Parabens, sulfates and phthalates. WOW! Isn’t that great. Free from all those nasty chemicals.
This foundation has a liquid consistency and is oil-free. It gives medium to full coverage.
It lasts the whole day and is available in a whopping 18 different shades!
Another great thing about this product is that it’s undetectable so it’s like your not wearing anything on your skin.
In my opinion, although the product says it’s moisturising it caused a little dryness because of it containing alcohol but you peeps should test it out for yourselves as everyone has different skins.

You can grab your too faced born this way foundation if you feel like it tickles your fancy.
Milk makeup blur liquid matte foundation
Right on to the next one, it’s weightless, it provides full coverage and easily blendable, it’s the milk makeup foundation.
Wow! Foundation coming in spray bottle means that it won’t oxidize in its packaging as you can’t forget to not close it. Milk foundation gives a smooth matte finish on your skin.
The shade range is great as well including light to expresso. Like too faced it’s free from Parabens.
On the other hand I found that the foundation did not last really long.
KAT VON D LOCK IT
Going onto the third brand which is Kat Von D! This foundation comes as a liquid form and you know what it’s water proof as well. Oooo.
It’s highly pigmented formula means that even one pump provides a great coverage.
I think this product is great especially for oily skin or combination skin. Long lasting and great colour match are just another few great things about this foundation.
Of course I had to look for something to make you peeps say oh great.
What I found is that it required a little effort to spread maybe as it’s highly pigmented (that could be a good thing), but if that’s what your looking for then what are you waiting for?

Fenty beauty pro filt’r soft matte longwear foundation
Fenty beauty pro filt’r soft matte longwear by Rihanna is great for dry skin and provides medium to full coverage, giving you a smooth finished look and shine free.
I mean who wants to look really shiny unless you’re a car up for sale :). This product is water proof and lasts the whole day or at least for quite a while.
Obviously the shade range is quite large making it excellent and the shade match is great. Fenty beauty doesn’t transfer as well.
The only thing that I found I had to write about is that you have to blend it quite quickly as I found it dried quick. But that’s if you’re slow like me.
You can go grab your Fenty beauty pro filt’r soft matte longwear foundation from here. But make sure you pick your right shade.
If you’re not sure, then you can read the full review here!
Inika certified organic liquid foundation
Let me start off by saying that majority of the ingredients are natural it includes antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Inika foundation provides a medium coverage and is lightweight as well as being obviously vegan and cruelty free.
Features include anti- aging, oil-free, and hydrating due to the foundation containing hyaluronic acid.
The foundation provides a natural finish and is easily blendable.
I think maybe if it had a few other shades in it’s range it would be great.??

Charlotte Tilbury magic foundation
Onto Charlotte Tilbury magic foundation which provides a long lasting wear and offers various skin shade colours as well as a natural finish.
The easily blendable foundation (if done quickly) is great for all skin types especially for dry skin due to the moisturising formula.
The thing is if you have a really sensitive skin it can cause breakouts for some maybe but you can always patch test first.

NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation
Last but not least it’s the NYX matte foundation which comes in a powder form. As it is a powdered foundation I think it’s great especially for oily skin.
It’s waterproof and mineral. If you get the right shade colour then it gives a natural look.
The setbacks are that there is not much powder in the packaging and they used to have 14 different shades but have for some reason narrowed it down.
Elf flawless finish foundation
If you usually struggle to find the perfect foundation shade match then I suggest you try out the elf flawless finish foundation, with around 40 shades you are bound to find the right one for you.
Due to it’s formula being oil free, it’s ideal for oily skin peeps. This foundation is also suitable for all skin types whether you have sensitive skin or ageing skin.
The lightweight semi matte finish blends easily to fit into the skin allowing imperfections like uneven skin tone or texture to be hidden, leaving a brighter looking complexion. You can check out the full review here!
Ilia true skin serum foundation
Coming in 30 shades arranging from very light with cool undertones to extra deep with neutral cool undertones. The ilia true skin serum comes providing with not only ‘weightless, medium-coverage’ but with some skincare benefits too, helping achieve a ‘brighter, smoother, and more healthy-looking complexion’ even after you take it off!
It features a ‘silky, breathable formula’ melts in allowing you to blend and blur for a finish that looks like your skin. This serum has the potential to minimise the look of pores, lines, redness as well as uneven skin tone instantly and overtime!

Hi there and thanks for this informative article,
I’ve tried a vegan foundation previously and found that although I’m happy not to be using animal products, the actual product is very cakey and obvious. I like my foundation to be subtle so it really wasn’t good.
Could you please tell me which of these products would be best for a subtle, every day look?
Hey marketa, thanks for reading. I think the best choice might be the inika certified organic liquid foundation as it’s both lightweight and gives a natural look so therefore it shun’t give a cakey look and should blend in well. ?
I am so happy to read your article. I know one more about a vegan foundation. I will try in the sooner future. I don’t have really like to makeup, but why not to try, is it right? Thank you so much for your useful information. It is very detail and specific about the types of foundation. Keep going and congratulations.
Hi Lynh, thanks for reading! Ur right u don’t have to like makeup to try it, if that’s what you like. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by🙂
Best Vegan Foundations, they are good but I prefer something light and natural. From what I have read, Inika certified organic is what I need. But I can I professionally apply it? Could you please write an article to help in this area? Also please show where to get everything you use. Thank you can’t wait!
Hi Micheal, thanks for reading and yh inika maybe what you like judging from what you have stated and as for applying foundation, don’t worry I’ll cover that for you soon! If you are wondering where to purchase these items there are links within the article. They can be brought from Amazon or directly from the products website.
Have a great day!
I am excited to keep you bookmarked. I have been looking for natural, vegan foundation. Doing some research lately I have discovered all of the chemicals that I have been using on my skin. Just can’t believe what we have been exposing ourselves to. I really appreciate your detailed views of each product. One of the comments and your reply answered my question as well. I prefer the more natural look and it is difficult to find the right texture. I love the idea of a foundation containing Hyaluronic acid and vitamins as well. My problem is scarring and trying to blend colors and texture for a more even tone. I am so grateful for this information. I have been working towards a more natural, green and healthy way of living, but I just cannot go out of the house without ‘putting my face on’.
Love, Light and Blessings
Hi surina thanks a lot for your comment! Totally agree with what you have said and to kinda answer your question I think maybe a cream textured foundation maybe best for you that is also medium coverage as it can cover scarring whilst also not being to heavy on your skin as for blending have you tried blending various ways such as a blender. With this foundation can be put on and blended easier. And just remember your beautiful just the way you are!
I do not use makeup, but I understand the importance of using only vegan makeup, as my wife only uses that kind. If I want to give her some makeup as present, I habe to make sure it is not tested in animals, otherwise she will not use it. So tjanks for these options here, now you gave me more ideas!
Hi Juan thanks for stopping by, haa good thing there are many cruelty free options out there otherwise finding a present would have took a while!
hello dear, i have say that I’m so much intrigued buy your best vegan Foundation review you have here,. I know one more about a vegan foundation. I will try in the sooner future. I don’t have really like to makeup, but why not to try, is it right? Thank you so much for your useful information. It is very detail and specific about the types of foundation.I look forward to sharing this awesome review on my blog with my friends with reference to your blog,,,
thanks for sharing am off to share it
Hey Evans thanks for the nice comment, and yh makeup some people love it whereas some people aren’t really into it. But that’s totally fine!
Some great options here and what is wonderful about these options is that they are totally vegan and free from chemicals that can harm your skin. I have a dry skin, so I try not to go for powder or powdery foundations. I think the one I would most like to try here would definitely be the milk foundation. This looks like it will be beneficial for the skin as well as hide imperfections. Pity it doesn’t last too long.
Hey Michel thanks for stopping by!
You are correct, I would suggest the milk foundation too especially for dry skin as powder foundations can make the skin appear more flakey or dry unless of course you prime and moisturize.
