It’s hard enough to find the perfect makeup tutorial on YouTube to recreate on your Big Day (or to have a makeup artist recreate for you). If you’re vegan, this sentiment rings true on a whole new level, as there are certainly fewer vegan-specific makeup tutorials living on the Interwebs than there are traditional ones. One surefire thing vegans and non-vegans can both agree about is that #VeganLife can surely be a challenge.

On top of that struggle is the intensive journey to find a tutorial that’s 100% vegan, as a large majority of tutorials contain products that are just cruelty-free, rather than vegan, too. While both options are non-toxic and organic, the two are often mistaken as interchangeable when they’re not. A cruelty-free label ensures products are not tested on animals, whereas vegan products are not tested on animals and contain absolutely no animal byproducts.

So, you might feel like it’s nearly impossible to find more than one tutorial that includes all vegan products — and you’d probably consider yourself the luckiest human around to be able to find one tailored solely to bridal makeup. To ease the pain of scouring YouTube for hours on end, we’ve done your research for you. Ahead, check out four all-vegan makeup tutorials to use as inspiration for your bridal makeup.
