This summer will be a different experience for all of us. Travelling is on hold, festivals have been cancelled and parties are being rescheduled. But that doesn’t mean you don’t still want to look and feel good. Creating an amazing make-up look is just the boost we all need right now – even if it’s just to video-call your boss. Step in high-performance, vegan cosmetics brand, KVD Vegan Beauty. The collection is all about expressing yourself and how you want to be seen, while being kind at the same time – surely that’s what this summer is all about. Here are our picks of the products you need to know about.
All great make-up looks start with a perfect base, and this brand-new foundation ticks all the beauty boxes. It’s lightweight so won’t feel heavy on your skin; a must when the temperatures go up. And its clever oil-free liquid-to-powder formula means it will create a perfectly matte finish and keep shine at bay. Ideal for all those video calls, but even better when you can see your friends IRL, too. It comes in an impressive 40 shades and a small drop is all you need. Buff on to your face with a brush or damp sponge, or press it into the skin using your fingers. And just look at that packaging! Insta-worthy or what?

You know how with most eyeshadow palettes there are at least four dud shades you know you’ll never go near? Not so with this beauty. All 18 romantic shades are totally wearable, either on their own or blended together – from soft pinks, warm purples, versatile nudes and golden oranges. Choose from matte, shimmer, foil and glitter for the perfect finish, whatever your summer vibe.
You need: NEW KVD Vegan Beauty Lolita Por Vida Eyeshadow Palette
This eyeliner has gained iconic status thanks to the fact it doesn’t budge, whatever you put it through. That’s down to its waterproof and smudge-resistant formula – so jumping through sprinklers or taking a garden pool dip are all encouraged. It also has a super-fine nib, which makes it even easier to create the perfect eyeliner shape (check out the know-how video below).
You need: NEW KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper Black
No look is complete without lashings of mascara and this one does everything you want a great mascara to do. The different length of bristles ensure that every lash is covered in the silky, dark black formula, depositing mascara at the base of the lash to make them look fuller and combs it through right to the tip so they appear longer. Combine that with the fact that the cruelty-free formula doesn’t budge or smudge and you and your lashes are onto a winner.
