When I first became pregnant, I started to make a conscious effort to incorporate more clean products into my life (aside from my candy addiction, which was the only way I could have survived those nine months.) I researched everything, from our household supplies to my beauty products, to see where I could make improvements. But since the world of 'green' makeup is still pretty foreign to me, I decided to reach out to an expert. Katey Denno is a makeup artist who's passionate about clean products and is also the person behind Gwyneth Paltrow’s natural glow and Mindy Kaling’s perfect smoky eye. If you're intimidated by your local health store's beauty aisle, read on for Katey's favorite picks:
