Our Beauty, Their Pain
I painted this for a class I was taking, to take a stance on animal testing within cosmetic companies.
Popular makeup brands like Maybelline claim they do not test their products on animals. While they do not test in the United States, one law requires that the company must test on animals in order to sell their products at all in China. Not only has animal testing long been known as unethical, but animal testing is also unnecessary at this point- research indicates that all makeup ingredients that are toxic to humans are all already known. Shop cruelty-free brands instead;)
