Vegan beauty Instagrammers to follow

Vegan beauty Instagrammers to follow

Vegan beauty alternatives are fast becoming one of the most searched for items on Google, and there are no shortage of vegan beauty-loving Instagram stars to follow for inspiration…


We don’t have hoards of vegan and cruelty-free beauty influencers here in Ireland, but the ones that are here are great. If ever I need guidance in terms of Leaping Bunny certified products, or if I need to know how ethical a brand is, I check one of these three pages…

Laura’s Instagram has it all really. Vegan beauty (she’s a REN brand ambassador, one of the most authentic partnerships I’ve seen) is a key factor, but there’s also recipes, advice, humour and general lifestyle inspiration. Laura is someone who is always mindful of budget too, meaning many of the products she recommends are accessibly priced.

Holly is one of Ireland’s most well-known vegans, and has even designed a vegan menu for The Merrion Hotel. Her knowledge of vegan and cruelty-free beauty is vast, if you’re looking for a good skincare recommendation, Holly is the girl to ask.

It’s clear from a scan of Leanne’s Instagram page that not only is she personally passionate about cruelty-free brands, but she’s also vocal in her encouragement of others’ transitioning to using cruelty-free brands. She makes sure to list brands that still test on animals, she showcases brands that don’t and her resulting looks are always stunning.
