7 Cruelty Free Summer Beauty Products

Sometimes it can be hard to find makeup products that meet all my needs for the summer. I don't want anything that will dry out my skin, and I need it to stay on through my sweat (summer days are HUMID). I also want something that has the potential to stay on for those spontaneous trips to the beach or the waterpark. Even if I find a product that is perfect for summer, sometimes I find out the company tests on animals, which, let's be real, is not cool. Here are seven products I think are great for your summer beauty routine.

Tarte Micellar Magic

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them.

They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
