What Are The Best Sustainable Makeup & Beauty Brands Out There?

Purchasing makeup is always exciting, but do you know what's even more exciting? Buying products from companies that strive to not only help you feel beautiful but also help the earth and the living creatures that live on it feel beautiful as well. In honor of Earth Day, we've decided to highlight makeup and beauty brands and companies (some which you will definitely recognize, and some you may not) that have decided to do what they can to protect the earth and the creatures that live on it.
