Sustainable Beauty

Set for release on November 16, Sustainable Beauty is by Justine Jenkins, a professional make-up artist with 23 years of experience under her belt. After making a switch to become more sustainable ten years ago, Jenkins has since become a cruelty-free cosmetics pioneer, using solely ethical and sustainable beauty products on her clients. “Becoming more sustainable is a universal issue, and the reason I wrote this book was to provide good, solid, practical advice and solutions for people who want to make more ethical beauty choices, but have no idea where to start,” Jenkins tells Tatler.

“It’s a guide that cuts through the confusion of the sustainable beauty world, so wherever the reader is, they can make informed choices as to what to spend their money on and put on their skin. It also offers 20 easy recipes for the reader to start making products, and provide their own sustainable beauty solutions.”
