How To Add Veganuary Into Your Beauty Routine
And just like that, it’s 2023! Happy New Year to all our Spectrum babes. If, like us, you’re looking to kick off the year by adding more positivity to your daily life, then Veganuary is a fabulous way to start. Veganuary can help you try new things, help the environment and even help you develop some great new habits.
Most people think Veganuary is all about switching to a vegan diet, but there are other ways you can get involved too. Taking Veganuary and giving it a beauty twist could be just the thing to get you thinking about your beauty products in a new way and give you a new routine you can stick to.
Ready to shine this Veganuary? Take a look at how you can add Veganuary into your beauty routine.
Start With A Little Clear Out
The beginning of the year is the perfect time to have a clear out, ready to start the year afresh. It gives you a chance to look through your products and see what you can get rid of. Some great tips for a new year beauty declutter include:
- Check the expiry date on your beauty products. You can learn more about beauty expiry dates to help you know when your products are past their best.
- Dispose of your empties and go the extra mile by making sure you recycle your products and packaging to help the environment.
- If you have products you don’t use or no longer need, consider giving them to friends or family or even donate them to a good cause. For unopened beauty products, you can donate them through charities like Beauty Banks to help them go to women in need.
- Inspect your brushes for damage. If your brushes are looking past their best, it may be time to dispose of them and treat yourself to a new set.
Invest In Some Guilt-Free Brushes (and learn to take care of them)
Adding more vegan products into your beauty routine is something you can do gradually, adding products as you need them to help prevent waste. A new set of brushes can be a great place to start, and by choosing Spectrum brushes, you know you’re getting vegan and cruelty-free products. Some of our top picks include:

Pair Your Vegan Makeup Brushes With Top Vegan Makeup
Armed with your new styling tools, you can use them with some top vegan make-up products for beautiful looks. Whether the natural look is your fave or you love to experiment with colour and detail, there are products out there for you.
A glowing complexion is always a great idea to keep you looking fresh-faced. Start with our Glowful Primer to prep your skin, then choose a vegan foundation like Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation to even your skin tone and create a stunning base. Our D04 Dewy Foundation Brush as found in our Jemma Lewis 10-Piece Sets can help you create a smooth, subtle finish.
Creating the perfect eye look can set you up for the day or get you ready to make an impression at night. But to create a fabulous eye look, you’re going to need the right products. Start with a vegan cream eyeshadow like ZAO’s Cream Eye Shadow and either wear alone for a subtle colour wash, or add some depth with our Pantherine Eyeshadow Palette. Our Pantherine 6-Piece Eye Set makes the perfect pairing to help you work your magic.
Enhance your look by adding fullness and texture to your brows. Use the spoolie end of the A24 Double Ended Brow Styler brush, from our Marble 12 Piece Brush Set. Apply a brow gel like Pink Honey’s vegan brow gel, for the perfect fluffy or laminated brows.
