Makeup artist Kendra Stanton joined us to tell us why we might want to consider going vegan with our makeup and cosmetic choices:

If you've ever noticed the little white "cruelty-free" bunny on makeup packaging, that means the products are not tested on animals.  Many companies are even taking that a step further by going completely vegan -- meaning the product does not contain any animal product. 

The type of animal products range from bees wax to ingredients derived from cow, pig, fish scales and even crushed beetles.  Look out for ingredients like lanolin, hyloronic acid, carmine (beetles), pearlessence (fish scales) and even collagen.

Also, don't get the words "organic" and "natural" confused with vegan.  Many organic cosmetics have animal ingredients in them.  It's not always easy to find products that are 100% vegan, but your search will be easier if you start in a store that carries a lot of health food and organic products.

Here are the products shown on the show today:

From Obsessive Compulsive cosmetics:
6 lip tars ($13 each)
6 loose shadows ($12.00 each)
Brushes (vary- $18-$28)
