Although 2018 was a standout year for vegan beauty and fashion, 2019 already appears to be absolutely packed with amazing vegan trends and cruelty-free product reveals. In 2018, beauty junkies got a taste of just how good zero-waste packaging could be thanks to companies like Lush. And although vegan fur was elevated to chic from cheap, designers and brands are committing to full vegan fur ranges, rather than releasing a jacket or hat here and there. Read on to get a jump on the best vegan beauty and fashion trends to come. The Top 10 Vegan Beauty Trends for 2019 1. Hottest New Ingredient: CBD-Infused Everything View this post on Instagram Light one up for our \u2757\ufe0fNEW\u2757\ufe0fKush Lip Balm + Kush Lip Glaze - ?KUSH LIP BALM? $16 Prep your lips for those munchies with this soothing balm that instantly hydrates lips with hemp-derived cannabis oil. ?KUSH LIP GLAZE?$18 Hiiiigh shine, non-sticky, liquid lip hydrator infused with hemp-derived cannabis oil. - BOTH HAVE: ?HIT OF HYDRATION: conditioning, hemp-derived cannabis oil soothes and hydrates lips. ?THE GOOD STUFF: shea, cocoa, and mango butters coat and instantly absorb to soften lips and improve texture.

This product\u00a0received its initial \u201cbuzz\u201d because of its ingredients, which features hemp-derived CBD oil. It appears that CBD oil products\u00a0will only get more popular in 2019. A recent industry press release reported that \u201cthe hemp-derived CBD category" earned "$190 million in sales in 2017" and "is poised to reach a $1.0 billion market in 2018 led by hemp-derived CBD, food, personal care, and industrial products.\u201d The release also reported that the Hemp Business Journal estimated that "the U.S. hemp industry will grow to a $1.9B market by 2022." 2. Hottest Trend: Major Companies Going Cruelty-Free Vegan beauty enthusiasts lost their mind earlier this year when COVERGIRL announced it earned Cruelty Free International's Leaping Bunny Certification. The Coty-owned beauty brand worked closely with CFI to ensure that all COVERGIRL products are cruelty-free. Coty also aims to move one of its other beauty brands to cruelty-free status by 2020. Coty owns Clairol, Rimmel, Max Factor, Philosophy, and more. 3. Hottest Vegan Ingredient: Vegetable-Infused Beauty Products In 2019, more beauty lovers will begin to slather their bodies with vegetable-infused beauty products.\u00a0 Vegan brands, such as Pacifica, already sell products that are rich in antioxidants and plant extracts. The company\u2019s Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash gets its power from kale, seaweed, and blue seakale.\u00a0 4. Hottest Category to Watch: Vegan Collagen Conventional collagen, which is found in many traditional hair and skin products, is a protein that\u2019s produced only by animals. So, imagine vegans\u2019 surprise - and joy - when Geltor unveiled N-Collage, the world\u2019s first animal-free high-performance collagen for cosmetics. The company recently won the 2018 CEW Beauty Award\u2019s \u201cInnovation of the Year\u201d award. Geltor\u00a0makes its product by programming microbes that then produce collagen. This collagen can then undergo a fermentation process to turn it into gelatin for food products or be left as-is. The product is said to provide an elastin-boosting effect and protect a person\u2019s keratinocytes (cells in the outermost layer of the skin) from UVB rays with vegan, kosher, halal, and sustainable ingredients. Can you imagine all the potential products we could see if vegan beauty brands could use this technology in the future? The possibilities are enticing... 5. Hottest Colors: Earthy, Natural Mineral-Based Powders and Foundations View this post on Instagram Get frosty this month with our Rainbow Crystals Liquid Mineral Strobe Highlighter offered at pacificabeauty.com & in this month\u2019s @ipsy #glambag These crystalline gems are also available at ipsy.com (link in bio) A true #unicorn highlighter that will have you living the #strobelife \u2728 #frostyourself #strobelife #highlighter #ipsy A post shared by Pacifica Beauty (@pacificabeauty) on Dec 11, 2018 at 8:59am PST Mineral foundations and powders were everywhere in 2018, so it\u2019s only natural to assume we\u2019ll continue to see these earthy beauty products on glowing faces come 2019. Valana Minerals sells a luxury mineral powder foundation that\u2019s vegan, and promises to leave skin looking natural. And Pacifica sells a\u00a0shimmery mineral highlighter\u00a0and mineral\u00a0BB Cream. 6. Hottest Lip Trend: Cream Lipsticks View this post on Instagram The most dreamy-creamy swatches we've ever laid our eyes on! ? ? #UnicornLipsticks ? @theglamwoman A post shared by Lime Crime (@limecrimemakeup) on Dec 9, 2018 at 3:03pm PST Creamy lipsticks are here to stay. Somewhere between matte and sheer, cream lipsticks can deliver a pop of bold color without the drying formula found in mattes. Cruelty-free beauty brand Lime Crime\u00a0offers a range of cream colors through its signature Unicorn Cream Lipstick and Matte Velveteen collections.\u00a0 Kat Von D Beauty offers the\u00a0Studded Kiss Cr\u00e8me Lipstick\u00a0a long-lasting lip color that comes in 40 shades. 7. Hottest Skin Care Trend: Natural Skin Care As consumers grow aware of the\u00a0toxic ingredients\u00a0found in some beauty products, natural skin care is on the rise. Lush Cosmetics, a pioneer in the natural beauty space, relies almost entirely on natural ingredients and preservatives in its cleansers, moisturizers, and face masks. OSEA Malibu, a vegan and cruelty-free brand, is committed to using natural, organic ingredients in its products. Natural skin care is also no longer just a luxury - even affordable online retailer Brandless\u00a0offers a natural skin cleanser for the attractive price of $3. 8. Hottest Look: Big Brows Will Stay Big View this post on Instagram Happy birthday @jakobejay Beautiful brows using #BrowWiz pencil in \u201cGranite\u201d & our Powder bronzer in \u201cMahogany\u201d A post shared by Anastasia Beverly Hills (@anastasiabeverlyhills) on Dec 8, 2018 at 12:28pm PST '90s brows, begone! The days of overplucking are (fingers crossed) a thing of the past and bushy brows are here to stay. Cosmetics companies are on top of brow grooming accessories, with pencils, pomades, gels, and powders to help enhance what nature (did or didn't) give you. The brow whizzes at Anastasia offer vegan versions of all of the above, but it's not the only brand to embody the trend. Milk Makeup makes a CBD-infused brow gel\u00a0and Kat Von D launched a vegan brow collection last March. PS, drugstore makeup brand Wet n Wild makes a vegan brow mascara\u00a0that costs about $5. 9. Hottest Sustainability Trend: Plastic-Free Packaging View this post on Instagram There are an estimated 1 billion lipstick containers going into landfill each year. The #LushMakeup team are putting a stop to that - Introducing the refillable lipstick! ? Simply peel and pop into your old lipstick. So instead of putting your favourite bullet in the bin, keep it and fill it back up. Coming soon... #LushShowcase #Makeup #Lipstick A post shared by LUSH UK (@lush) on Sep 24, 2018 at 10:23am PDT Though the trend is new, Lush has proven that package-free is possible - and popular. After the successful launch of its\u00a0packageless\u00a0vegan foundation, the company expanded its plastic-free range with highlighters\u00a0and after that, lipstick. Lush isn't the only company that's conscious about its packaging - cruelty-free and vegan organic beauty brand Antonym\u00a0isn't zero waste, but everything is packaged in sustainable bamboo. 10. More Than a Trend: Diversity View this post on Instagram Glowinggg \u2600\ufe0f Featuring: @makeupshayla X @colourpopcosmetics #Boomin Highlighter, No filter concealer (Dark 46) | @maya_galore A post shared by ColourPop Cosmetics (@colourpopcosmetics) on Nov 3, 2018 at 8:15am PDT In the past and present, beauty companies have dropped the ball when it comes to offering foundation for darker skin tones. But over the past year several cosmetics companies, including Lush, COVERGIRL, ColourPop, and NYX\u00a0launched foundation ranges that cater to people of color. We don't want to see this go away ever, so that's why it's more than a trend - it's the beginning of a more inclusive era of beauty. Top 9 Vegan Fashion Trend Predictions 11. Hottest Fabric: Vegan Leather Vegan leather is everywhere these days - and innovators are making it from just about anything. This year saw the rise of cruelty-free leather made from\u00a0apples, pineapple,\u00a0coconut\u00a0water,\u00a0mushrooms, and\u00a0coffee, to name a few examples. Well-known labels like Hugo Boss\u00a0and Adidas, which launched a vegan leather Stan Smith shoe with Stella McCartney, are embracing it. Vegan leather is so in, even Martha Stewart\u00a0launched a line of affordable, cruelty-free shoes. 12. Hottest Fabric: Vegan Fur View this post on Instagram Check out our super #luxe 100% #crueltyfree #fauxfur ! #designed and #ethicallymade in #nyc #timeless #forever #fashion #vegan #tuesday #style click link in bio to shop \u2764\ufe0f A post shared by House of Fluff (@hofnyc) on Nov 13, 2018 at 8:35am PST When\u00a0Kim Kardashian\u00a0says that faux fur is her new thing, you know that the real thing is on its way out. It's also been a big year for top label designers including Gucci, Michael Kors, Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, and DKNY. Even Vogue gave faux an endorsement and there are now brands like NYC's House of Fluff dedicated to cruelty-free alternatives to the real thing. Kylie and Kendall Jenner launched a faux fur jacket line at Macy's and Stella McCartney's cruelty-free fur coat was rocked in public by musician Dua Lipa. Legislation is also helping to push fur out the door. The LA city council banned the sale of fur, making it the largest US city to do so. It joined San Francisco, Berkeley, and West Hollywood in implementing similar bans. 13. Hottest Fabric: Vegan Wool View this post on Instagram Running around the #garmentdistrict, working hard on some new @brave_gentleman coats for you! These classic-style dress-coats will be in-store in about a week! Made in lux #futurewool from a 100% #recycled poly\/cotton blend w\/ real corozo buttons and organic cotton lining. Super-limited quantities made! . . . . #menswear #menstyle #mensfashion #nyfw #madeinusa #madeinnyc #madeinny #sustainablefashion #ethicalfashion #vegan #veganfashion A post shared by Brave GentleMan (@brave_gentleman) on Jan 6, 2017 at 11:51am PST Wool is considered by many to be less cruel than materials like fur and leather, but explos\u00e9s have revealed that the industry is unkind to sheep. Innovations in the fashion industry seek to provide a cruelty-free alternative. Students created Woocoa, a vegan wool made from hemp and coconut fibers. The contest was sponsored by vegan designer Stella McCartney, who highlighted the need for innovative vegan wool in the industry. NYC-based vegan menswear brand, Brave Gentleman, makes a luxe "future-wool" from recycled cotton and polyester. 14. Hottest Fabric: Feather-Free Down View this post on Instagram Who knew recycled plastic could look so cool? Tomorrow, ReNew is finally here. #ReNewToday A post shared by Everlane (@everlane) on Oct 23, 2018 at 6:00pm PDT Down feathers are traditionally used as insulation for puffy winter jackets - but a number of brands have come up with cruelty-free, sustainable alternatives that make a bird's heart sing. The North Face launched vegan versions of its popular ThermoBall coat, stuffed with down made from recycled plastic from Primaloft. EverLane's\u00a0vegan down jacket\u00a0made from recycled water bottles had a 38,000-person waiting list upon its release and Canadian brand Quartz Co. launched puffy coats filled with milkweed instead of feathers. 15. Hottest Designer: Stella McCartney View this post on Instagram The diagonal #Falabella chain tote, in detail. Impactful logo straps, our house monogram and luxurious non-leather trims make this bag a must have. . #StellaMcCartney #StellasWorld A post shared by Stella McCartney (@stellamccartney) on Dec 13, 2018 at 10:30am PST Ethical vegan fashion designer Stella McCartney killed it this year. Not only has the British designer launched new collections, including faux fur and a children's line, through her own brand, she's also collaborated with top labels. This year, she made a vegan version Adidas' classic Stan Smith and created a sustainable athletic wear\u00a0collection. Celebrities including Miley Cyrus,\u00a0Emma Thompson, Madonna,\u00a0Karlie\u00a0Kloss, and even\u00a0Meghan Markle\u00a0have rocked McCartney's designs. In addition to that, McCarney also launched a UN charter for sustainable fashion and spoke out about the leather industry. 16. Hottest Trend: Slow Fashion View this post on Instagram Linn Tees launch tomorrow in sizes up to US 28 and new linen colors!!! Also sneaking in with them are Harlows in new linen colors (they already come in new sizes). Later today I\u2019ll share a breakdown of what else is launching this year and when!!! Stay tuned :) A post shared by Elizabeth Suzann (@elizsuzann) on Oct 16, 2018 at 7:43am PDT Slow fashion brands is the polar opposite of fast fashion. Focused on bringing as many on-trend pieces to market as possible, fast fashion has been criticized for its cruelty to workers, its detrimentel effect on the planet, the poor quality of clothing, and for encouraging overconsumption. Slow fashion, is dedicated to responsible practices that benefit people and the planet by encouraging making mindful purchases. Singapore-based slow fashion company\u00a0Matter Prints\u00a0is one of the brands looking to change the industry, as are\u00a0Cuyana, Encircled, and Elizabeth Suzann. 17. Hottest Styles: Gender Neutral Clothing View this post on Instagram A post shared by GFW Clothing (@genderfreeworld) on Jun 4, 2018 at 5:19am PDT More brands are realizing that clothing does not actually have a gender, despite long being separated into "men's" and "women's" departments (hello, nonbinary and department? where are\u00a0you?). This year, vegan celeb Miley Cyrus, who identifies as gender neutral, launched three collections with iconic shoe brand Converse, nothing that the clothing is for all genders. Beyond that, sweatshop-free brand American Apparel\u00a0has always been ahead of the curve with its unisex wardrobe staples, VEEA makes high-end menswear made to fit women, UK brand Gender Free World\u00a0totes "clothing without labels," and Austin, Texas's FLAVNT\u00a0makes gender-neutral streetwear. 18. Hottest Category: Eco-Friendly Shoes View this post on Instagram Made with things that grow. The upper? Cotton. The bottom? Corn. Think we're crazy? Learn more through link in bio. #cottonandcorn #sustainability #biobased A post shared by Reebok (@reebok) on Aug 15, 2018 at 12:38pm PDT Sustainability is the name of the game and top brands are on top of it. Adidas launched sneakers made from recycled ocean plastic, which the company estimates will rake in over $1 billion. Reebok released sustainable shoes\u00a0made from corn and cotton - and while the original launch featured a leather tag, the company replaced it with canvas\u00a0to make the sneakers vegan.\u00a0Ball\u016bta, a sustainable, vegan luxury shoe brand that launched last May, has already earned a strong fan following. 19. Hottest Category: Functional Bags View this post on Instagram Beauty \u2a09 utility - Form meets function in the Commuter Backpack. It holds a charge as well as a weekend wardrobe, so you're well-equipped to wander wherever an opportunity takes you. - #LifeUntethered A post shared by M O T I L E (@motileofficial) on Dec 3, 2018 at 6:41pm PST Shoes aren't all that's becoming more sustainable - bags are too. The rise in popularity of the zero waste lifestyle means that\u00a0single-use plastic bags are out. Instead, we'll see an increase in chic,\u00a0sustainable reusable totes\u00a0for all your grocery needs - and of course, classic canvas always looks good. We'll also see more functional, but stylish bags available, like Motile's vegan leather bag collection that just launched in Walmart. The range, designed with commuters in mind, features handbags, wallets, gym bags, and backpacks that all come with wireless charging capabilities.
