Los Angeles-based Makeup Artist Courtney Hagen and Beauty Photographer Beth Sternbaum have teamed up to create a cruelty-free beauty blog featuring adoptable animals. The blog, Beauty & Our Beasts, promotes the cruelty-free beauty by providing shopping resources and brings the issue of animal adoption to the forefront.
Beauty & Our Beasts shows consumers just how glamorous cruelty-free can be with beauty campaign style images, featuring Hagen’s clean, colorful makeup looks and Sternbaum’s fresh editorial photography. The duo create wearable, stunning looks with only cruelty-free makeup, and they give readers options to make cruelty-free beauty a part of their lives. “As consumers, we don’t realize the amount of choices we have when it comes to shopping cruelty-free. Flawless makeup doesn’t have to be sacrificed when making ethical choices in beauty. We don’t have to choose between quality and a clear conscience,” says Hagen.
By using the power of beauty, Beauty & Our Beasts also draws attention to animals in need of adoption. Each blog post features editorial beauty images with a fashion model holding an animal currently up for adoption. The photos are accompanied with information about the animal in the photo and adoption details and contact information for readers who are interested in rescuing the dog, cat, or even rabbit.
