Eco-chic beauty picks you need, stat

Going green in the beauty department doesn’t just mean sporting Pantone’s marsala hue (although we do advocate for that, too). In honor of Earth Day (April 22), we’ve stripped down the lab coats and put together sustainable standouts to help you clean up your beauty act—and look good doing it.
