You can get glammed up and be au naturel by incorporating green beauty products into your wedding makeup


Jacqueline Parker, owner and lead stylist at Beauty Reawakened, says to start by swapping out the makeup you use most with an organic or eco-friendly alternative. “First, find replacements for products that you use directly on the skin and near your eyes, like foundation and mascara,” says Parker. “Many of my clients switch their foundation to a clean product and notice a significant difference in their skin’s hydration, texture and overall look.” Parker, co-owner of The Green Beauty Collective with Amanda Gangoso, recommends Elate Clean Cosmetics and Sappho Organic Cosmetics, two B.C. makeup brands. “We use both of these products in our bridal makeup kits and have the full lines for customers to test and purchase at our shop in East Vancouver.”
