Our kindred spirit Annabella Asvik—environmentalist, vegan, TV producer and fashion model—set out to prove you can look beautiful with natural makeup products that work their magic without petrochemicals—and without any testing on animals. She invited us to a session where she teamed up with Ecco Bella consultant Tara Capriglione and fashion photographer Akos Simon to recreate classic looks, using nothing but Ecco Bella Products.
Just in time for holiday parties, you can share in the results, as we go behind the scenes for a professional fashion shoot.
You can watch Annabella and Tara on video as they take you step-by-step through the process. First watch here as Annabella explains her reasons for using organic and vegan cosmetics. (One of the most interesting things I learned was that natural makeup is able to be used in places on the face that would be impossible with mainstream products.)

Enjoy this peek at the photo shoot, which proved you can be glamorous and green! Keep in mind, the final close-up’s of Annabella are the raw files from Akos—no retouching!
Thanks to Annabella, Tara and Akos for sharing their work.
