Ask Kaylin: Local Eco-Friendly Makeup Artists

Many big cities offer eco-friendly makeup artists, but sometimes they can be few and far between. So what do you do if you can't find a local makeup artist who accommodates natural or vegan makeup?

Do you have recommendations for an eco-friendly, vegan makeup artist  in the New England area? I am getting married in Maine next summer.

I'm glad to hear that you're looking for vegan and eco-friendly makeup options. Eco-friendly makeup artists can be hard to find, and I haven't worked with any in the New England area.
Here are a few options I'd recommend:
  1. Bring your own makeup and have it applied by a pro. You can ask a professional to use your eco-friendly and vegan products. I've listed some makeup suggestions in these articles. Look for pros in your area and email them to ask if they will accommodate with your cosmetics. I heard Alicia Silverstone has used this technique to use vegan makeup on movie sets.
  2. Look for an eco-friendly salon in the area. Many salons may offer makeup services, even if they aren't listed on their website. Reach out to salons in the area with eco-friendly, natural, and/or organic offerings.
  3. Do your own makeup. Follow the instructions in my series on Vegan Bridal Makeup Under $100. For a more detailed application process, see books such as Makeup Makeovers by Robert Jones.
Have a wonderful wedding!
