When working with my clients I always find myself making what I call Beauty Analogies... Which is when I compare a makeup tip or beauty product to something that has nothing to do with the face or beauty at all.
Wikipedia states"In the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world."
And so you would think that in this day and age that most cosmetic brands are cruelty-free… Well, think again... Many brands are cruelty-free in the USA but not around the world!!
