Be Beautiful, Not Cruel – Updated
We are reposting this blog, that was first posted in 2014, as it has come to our attention that some of the information in the original post was incorrect. In the original post we made the claim that some brands, including Nutrimetics, that have long been perceived as cruelty free, have decided to sell their products in China, which means they must test on animals (a prerequisite for selling to the Chinese market). This information was incorrect as Nutrimetics does not sell to China and does not test their products [...]
My Favourite Cruelty-Free Pregnancy Beauty Products by Liv Lundelius
There is often a lot of confusion and misinformation about which cosmetics are safe to use during pregnancy and in the end it always comes down to checking with your doctor or midwife and what you feel comfortable with. I had already only been using clean, green, toxin-free beauty products before I was pregnant, so I was able to continue using most of them. However, some natural products contain essential oils which aren’t recommended during pregnancy, so I did have to replace a few. Usually concentrations of essential oils in [...]

I rubbed it into my skin after a shower and the smell was just divine! Leahlani is a Hawaiian based organic skin care line, which has quickly established a cult following on social media. It is now finally available in [...]
My Cruelty Free Skin Care Routine by Liv Lundelius
I get asked all the time about what skincare products I use personally and what my favourites are. Living a plant-based, vegan lifestyle myself and working as a professional makeup artist using only cruelty-free products, I am always on the look-out for skincare that is luxurious, beautiful to use and all vegan. The truth is that I like to try new and different products and to always keep up to date with the latest product launches and trends in skincare. That’s why my personal routine does change from time to time. Usually [...]
How To Nail the No Makeup Makeup Look by Liv Lundelius
Looking at the latest images from the runways and behind the scenes at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Sydney one thing seems to be clear: The clean “no makeup makeup” look is here to stay! Those of you who know my work know that I am not only a fan of natural beauty products but also of very natural and minimal makeup looks. I believe less is more in the beauty department, although, don’t get me wrong, I love to play with a little bit of colour and also enjoy [...]
