When natural beauty makeup artist Jessa Blades and eco fashionista Greta Eagan recently got together for an Eco-Chick style photo shoot, the theme of the day was radiance. Jessa, who is passionate about promoting beauty that is connected to health, aims to help women look and experience their most vital selves.

Not only does she offer an amazing expertise on cosmetic safety, but her stellar makeup artistry is convincing women of all ages—from savy fashion clients to impressionable teens—that natural beauty products should absolutely be the norm.

Greta’s promotion of eco fashion—both through her personal blog Greta Guide and her creative agency FashionMeGreen—is also dedicated to conscious beauty.

Her eco fashion modeling as well as green style makeovers and city guides take readers along on her sustainable fashion journeys and offer them entry points for deepening the shades of green of their wardrobes.

So just what’s going on in order to look radiant? And just who is the shiniest person of all? The answer is you are the most radiant when you exude joy, ease, and vibrancy just like a happy baby! Although exfoliation often crops up in a discussion about chasing away dull complexions, Jessa prefers to focus on what makes you glow.

So that ranges from offering a client a wellness experience from the inside out to teaching her about the best beauty products and makeup techniques.
