If you’re looking to infuse your beauty routine with greener options — but not ready to toss your whole makeup bag — Paige Padgett, celebrity makeup artist and green beauty expert, explains what products make the most sense to swap, plus her favorite chemically-safe alternatives.

When thinking about the first products to go, start with ones like body lotion and BB cream that you apply on large areas of your body because “your skin absorbs 60 percent of what you put on it,” Padgett advises.

To find out what other product swaps will make your beauty routine more eco-friendly, watch the video above.
