6. @TheMakeupEffect

Rebecca Falkowski is a vegan and cruelty free makeup artist out of Dallas, Texas. Things she loves: people, animals, The Monkees, and a strong brow. She’s passionate about makeup, but even more passionate about uncovering the best products that don’t test on animals. “I’ve been doing makeup for over 10 years. It’s been amazing to watch my industry evolve and move away from antiquated forms of animal testing. There’s nothing more fulfilling than helping someone find their perfect lip color and being able to let them know that it wasn’t at the expense of an animal’s life."
