Authentic Beauty Makeup Salon & Brow Studio is thrilled to announce we are now offering makeup recycling in Atlanta at our studio through the Pact Collective, a nonprofit collective taking responsibility for the beauty industry’s packaging problem to make beauty packaging more sustainable.
Each year, over 120 billion cosmetic packages are created yet only a small fraction of that gets recycled. In fact, most of that will end up in the landfill. Because the beauty industry’s packaging is too small, too flexible, or made of too many materials to be traditionally recycled, Authentic Beauty’s mantra of beauty with a clean conscience felt sisyphean in nature until we partnered with the Pact Collective.
“At Authentic Beauty and now through our cosmetics line, Genuist Beauty, we’ve worked so hard to create beauty products that live up to their hype, do what they say they can do, are quick and easy to apply, look gorgeous, and are made of clean ingredients in sustainable packaging that we can all feel great about,” said Alyson Howard-Hoag, CEO & Founder of Authentic Beauty and Genuist Beauty. “Partnering with the Pact Collective means our ‘beauty with a clean conscience’ mantra is now a reality through this incredible makeup recycling program,” she added.
We are so excited about this Atlanta makeup recycling opportunity that when you bring 5 beauty items into the studio to recycle, you get 10% off 1 makeup item.
Also, when you come to Authentic Beauty to recycle your makeup, make sure to book a Makeup Bag Cleanup Lesson. Have our beauty experts go through your makeup bag and guide you on what has expired, what isn’t working for you anymore in your current collection and learn how to make the products you have work like a charm. If you need any makeup product replenishment, you’ll get 15% off your purchase during your lesson.

Why is a makeup bag clean up so important?
First, most beauty packaging ends up in a landfill, so this is your chance to responsibly recycle old beauty product packaging that otherwise would end up in a landfill. Remember, even though some packaging may have a recycling symbol on it, it often does not get recycled when it is smaller than a deck of cards.
Second, from a health perspective, our makeup bags can be breeding grounds for bacteria, especially if a makeup product has expired. In turn, this can lead to breakouts, infections, and other skin issues. That’s why it is integral to clean up your makeup bag routinely and keep your makeup products clean and safe to use.
Finally, you may be buying products you don’t need or using a product that does not serve you anymore.
