It’s not unusual to gravitate towards certain shades or different products as the seasons change. Below are our top picks for cruelty-free beauty this winter, featuring Kester Black and Eye of Horus Cosmetics.
Eye of Horus Goddess Eye Pencils glide on easy and best of all are smudge-proof! This means they won’t run or wash off if you are caught out in a bit of rain. These pencils come in a great range of shades so you can pick the best colour for you, however, I’m loving the sapphire blue for winter. It’s different than going with your standard black eyeliner and would be perfect for a night out for sultry midnight blue eyes.
Who doesn’ love a nude nail? Nude nails go with any outfit and there are so many shades of nude you’re bound to get the perfect tone for your skin colour. Going nude means your nails will look fresh and manicured and at the same time complement any outfit, from day tonight. Kester Black is our go-to cruelty-free nail polish brand. Definitely the best nail polish I’ve ever used. They are also 10 free and vegan. Read about what 10 free means here.
Eye of Horus Eyeshadow palettes is made with a cruelty-free vegan formula. Each palette contains three shades of high pigment color. For more intense color, you can wet your brush before you apply. The palette ‘Sheba Mystical’ is my pick for winter, but maybe I’m biased as I’ve always loved this palette. However, the plum shade in this palette is just beautiful and would recommend it for those with brown eyes. It’s complemented with a rose gold shade (did I say rose gold?!) and cream shade perfect for the inner corner of your eyes.
Siren Black Cherry is the ultimate winter lip shade. A dark plum/cherry shade for intense winter lip colour. This just screams date night, pair it with your favorite boots and little black dress. The Eye of Horus Velvet Lips range provides a creamy matte finish to your lips. The best thing is that they don’t dry out! I’ve experienced major problems with matte lipstick drying out on my lips within the 1st hour of application which is so disappointing. I promise you, these matte lipsticks are super creamy.

Black nails aren’t for everyone, but Kester Black’s shade ‘Black Diamonds’ has the extra glam that might just twist your arm. This black ‘holographic’ nail polish contains silver sparkles for a dark and moody nail with a glam factor.
