Jasmine Beg – Esthetician

After years of experience with professional makeup application, I learned a great deal about the many ingredients used in make up.  The more I learned, the more I discovered the dangers of toxic ingredients in many beauty products and the possible damage to your skin.  The testing of beauty products often involves animal cruelty, which was especially upsetting to me, so I began a quest for safe, non-toxic makeup brands that did not participate in animal testing, and were committed to ethical business practices.  Fortunately I have discovered wonderful brands that offer the same quality as designer products but are  safe, and many are vegan and gluten free.
