Beauty tools might not be tested on animals, but why ever support a brand that isn't cruelty-free? If you currently use tools from non-cruelty-free brands and are looking for alternatives, I hope you find some pointers below!

Spread the word.

Do you use face masks? You might love this May Lindstrom facial treatment brush ($30), particularly handy for mixing powder or natural home-made face masks. A brush will apply your mask evenly and mess-free.


two

What's cool about the Deborah Lippman Smooth Operator Nail Buffer ($12) is that it multitasks, yet it's small and convenient. It has 4 distincts textures that shine, smooth, buff, and shape. An all-in-one must-have nail tool!


three

Neither Shiseido nor Shu Umera are cruelty-free, and those are the two most talked-about curlers. But this doesn't mean they're the best ones, right?! Try Tarte's Picture Perfect eyelash curler ($19) as a cruelty-free alternative -- it also comes with a deluxe Lights, Camera, Flashes mascara.


four

No dupe or knockoff compares to the real Beauty Blender ($19.95). It's soft, fluffy, and applies any foundation flawlessly when you dampen it.


five

I love muslin cloths for removing my makeup and most will work just fine, but these Eve Lom ones ($20) are high-quality and long-lasting.


six

The Clarisonic brand isn't cruelty-free, but this cool pulsating face brush is! It cleans thoroughly and removes all your makeup, but it's still gentle enough for sensitive skin. It's called the Foreo Luna ($139) and you can get it at Sephora.


seven

Unless you always use twist-up mechanical lip and eye pencils, chances are you need a sharpener -- preferably one that's meant for makeup! I love the NARS Pencil Sharpener ($6) because it has 2 holes (one for jumbos and Train Bleu, one for everything else) and looks sleek.


eight

Anastasia Beverly Hills (all rise for the Queen of Brows) makes these cute tweezers ($28) that are gaining recognition as the best tweezers ever. They're slanted but small and easily pluck individual hairs.


nine

I'm sure you've heard of konjac sponges, which are gentle and 100% natural exfoliators, but did you know that The Konjac Company is certified by the Leaping Bunny?


ten

Blotting papers are a summer essential if you have combination or oily skin. The luxury brand Tatcha came up with a nifty packaging for their Aburatorigami Japanese Beauty Papers ($15). This tube looks elegant and even has a mirror! I love it.
