I'm Rebecca Casciano, Makeup Artist, Natural Beauty Activist and Sacred Beauty Coach. My mission is to help women discover the connection between our inner health and outer beauty. I strive to bring this intention to each person who sits in my chair, attends one of my events or reads an article I've written. I love what I do and from what my clients tell me, it shows!
My mom taught me at a young age that, "When you look good, you feel good!" I later learned that the reverse is also true - that when you feel good, you look even better. These powerful ideas have shaped my lifestyle, my self-esteem, and my philosophy on beauty. For over 17 years, I have worked as a celebrity and fashion makeup artist, helping hundreds of models and clients look their best. My entry into the fashion world, however, coincided with my own beauty concerns. I had been suffering with cystic acne for several years and found little relief from conventional treatments. Rather than settling for medications with possible side effects, I decided to take a holistic approach.
I transitioned to a whole-foods, plant-based diet and embraced natural healing modalities such as acupuncture, herbs, cleansing, yoga and meditation. I gradually found that not only did my skin begin heal, but I improved my overall wellness and adopted a conscious, healthy lifestyle that was more aligned with nature and spirituality. In the next phase of my transformation, I began to examine the ingredients in beauty products. I was surprised to find that most commercial brands contained chemicals that are toxic to our bodies as well as the environment. Yet, I was not convinced that we have to sacrifice our health to achieve beauty, so I spent years researching and testing cosmetics that are free of harmful ingredients. I was excited to find safe, natural products that still deliver the beautiful results we all desire.
After several years of sharing my story with family and friends, I realized a deep, genuine desire to help empower others to make healthy choices in their diet and lifestyle. I decided to attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and became a Certified Wellness Coach. I had the opportunity to train with visionary leaders in mind-body medicine such as Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil and David Wolfe. My time at IIN deepened my commitment to help women achieve radiant health and beauty from the inside out. As a makeup artist, I am dedicated to using products that are safe, sustainable and effective. And as a Beauty + Wellness Coach, I am passionate about educating women on the benefits of a nourishing, plant-based diet and beauty routine. Most recently, I founded Sacred Beauty Salon Series, a live, group workshop that explores deeper notions of beauty along with practical makeup tips and lifestyle inspiration.
I invite you to visit my site and learn all about my makeup artistry, makeup workshops, one-on-one coaching, live events and more.
