"Compassionate Beauty" is the project that I started in April 2018 to raise awareness of animal testing in the cosmetic industry.


Over 20 years ago, I became aware of the rampant animal testing in the cosmetic industry and learning about this cruelty really broke my heart. That's why it was so important for me to support cruelty free companies.

My first event was held on September 28th at High Bar NYC. I was able to raise $840 through this project and all the proceeds were donated to Humane Society International.

On January 25th 2019, I hosted a workshop call "Cruelty Free, Beautiful Me" at "Nina MUA" makeup school in NYC. I talked about cruelty-free products and doing live demonstration on a model. 

On January 4th 2020, I hosted a workshop in Japan.
