Vegan eyeshadow that is made with eco, natural, organic and vegan friendly ingredients is not only kind to our eyes and skin, they are also kinder to our planet! Back many years ago, beauty connoisseurs mixed up lead, crushed almonds, antimony, oxidized copper, ochre, malachite, and chrysocolla and applied it thickly to the lids and was equally popular with men and women.
In Ancient Greece and Rome, the use of eyeshadow was popular to keep away the evil eye, as well as to look fashionable and attractive. Since then, vegan eyeshadow has been used by men and women in countless cultures and over many different centuries for a variety of reasons. Ceremonial, for stage, for fashion, or just to accentuate the features, vegan eyeshadow has cemented its place as an essential vegan makeup item.
As the use of vegan eyeshadow was commercialised, ingredients were changed and somewhat standardised. Most commercial products contain talc which makes up the bulk of the product, as well absorbing moisture and making the colour appear opaque. Zinc stearate is also used to increase thickness and add colour and mica is used to give shine and lustre. Other common ingredients include preservatives, colourants, magnesium stearate, and sericite with silicones added in the case of liquid eyeshadows. Many of these ingredients are not ideal and some, such as preservatives and talc, can even be harmful and cause irritation.
