5 Must Try Zero Waste Makeup Brands

If you use makeup on a daily basis or even just for special occasions, you probably know that most makeup brands tend to have a lot of plastic packaging that ends up in the garbage. It’s pretty obvious that this is really bad for the environment, but it’s actually easy to avoid.

Instead of choosing brands that use materials that can’t be recycled, try shopping from this list of makeup brands that have little to no waste!

Most of these brands’ products are around the same prices as brands that are not considered zero waste, so you won’t be breaking the bank every time you pick up a new product. Most of these brands are also committed to using eco-friendly ingredients and don’t test on animals!
