Veganism is popular among some people for various reasons, including wanting to feel better, deciding to make more responsible health choices, becoming more environmentally conscious and emulating the actions of their favorite celebrities, notes the animal-advocacy group PETA. Anyone who hesitant to embrace veganism based on the assumption that she will not be able to enjoy pleasures such as wearing makeup will find that this is not true.
