We Traded Our Beauty For Yours

We Traded Our Beauty For Yours

Jade Duffield

That lipstick your wearing, an animal went blind for that.
That eyeshadow you love an animal lost its fur to that.
The foundation you "need" an animal was killed for that. 
The work I have produced I aimed to make people aware that their everyday favourite make up costs an innocent animal it's life. Just for them to look pretty. My father would tell me there is nothing wrong with that...that it's no different to eating meat. He fuelled my drawing.  Inspired me to prove they are not the same. I decided to research animal testing and the companies that claimed they were cruelty free when in all reality they weren’t. Too many animals die just so we can have a full matte pout in an Instagram picture but I see the truth and it's far uglier. My father said "animals die all the same what's the difference?" The difference is we test, torture and kill the animals to look beautiful that's the ugly truth, their bodies thrown away to be forgotten but we can't forget! 
I wanted to show my passion in a form of art and express my views in a simplistic form and therefore this illustration was born.
