New York – Known worldwide for her work as a tattoo artist on NY Ink and America’s Worst Tattoos and as a model who has graced the covers of numerous magazines, Megan Massacre is an expert when it comes to colorful, bold beauty—and now she’s bringing that expertise to peta2, PETA’s youth division, as the group’s new lifestyle correspondent. In her new video series, “Cruelty-Free Beauty”—which kicks off with a daytime makeup tutorial—Massacre reveals how easy it is to get a fierce look with cruelty-free brands such as series sponsor Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics as well as Tarte, e.l.f., Too Faced, and others.
In celebration of the launch of Massacre’s new video series, visitors to peta2.com can enter for a chance to win a gift set from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Entries will be accepted until May 29, and winners will be notified on May 30. The full contest details are available here.
“It was really important for me to share all my favorite cruelty-free makeup products and practices, because as a vegetarian, I really care about animals,” Massacre says, before explaining that rabbits and other animals have chemicals dripped into their eyes or rubbed into their raw skin in cruel and archaic product tests. “There are actually no laws in the United States that require cosmetic companies to test on animals, yet dozens of them still do.”
Fortunately, more than 1,400 compassionate companies have pledged not to test their products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world—peta2’s Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide has the full list.
Massacre is part of a long list of musicians, artists, and other celebrities—including her NY Ink costar Ami James as well as Rocsi Diaz, Krysten Ritter, Dave Navarro, Christian Serratos, and Travie McCoy—who have teamed up with peta2 to promote animal protection.
