I had the pleasure of talking with makeup artist, natural beauty expert and wellness coach Rebecca Casciano the other day. Rebecca is super passionate and knowledgable about green beauty and wellness and very inspiring to talk to. Rebecca is based is Brooklyn but she will be out in Los Angeles July 2nd at The Detox Market in West Hollywood to host her first West Coast Sacred Beauty Salon Series: ALL AGLOW, presented by Thoughtfully Magazine. At the event Rebecca celebrates self love & summer beauty with an interactive workshop, where she does a detailed demo and provides tricks, tips, talks green products, personal guidance and you get gift bag with some great green beauty goodies.
We asked Rebecca to share some tips and the current products she is using and loving!
Brush Cleaner? London Brush Company’s Vegan Shampoo or I make my own with essential oils.
Favorite beauty advice? When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you look good!
Do you find that natural makeup stays on the same as conventional? It varies from product to product, some doesn’t wear quite as long, but it’s comparable.
Do you use exclusively green products in your kit? Yes, however sometimes I need to use non-green mascara and foundation/concealer for darker skin tones. I hope that changes soon!
Any tips or tricks you can offer to someone looking to green their kit? Start with skincare and foundation, as they are used over the largest area of skin. Order samples or trial sizes so you can get a feel for what you like before investing. Swap out lip products next, as we inadvertently eat them. There are a lot of fantastic green options, so be patient with the process and enjoy the journey!
