BROOME STREET GENERAL STORE
Originally launched in New York City's SoHo neighborhood, this gift shop/cafe hybrid boasts a well-edited selection of all-natural beauty products. "They sell some of my favorite skin-care, perfume and cosmetics lines -- all nontoxic and very chic," says makeup artist Katey Denno, whose clients include Amber Heard and Susan Sarandon. Denno pops in for Tata Harper skin care ($24 to $150), Lurk perfume oils ($48) and Ilia's Illuminator to give skin a dewy glow ($34). She says: "Luckily we've come far from the early days of 'natural' makeup -- brown, crumbly cheek color. Yikes!"

GREEN LINE BEAUTY
"It's one of the first and best high-end green beauty shops," says Denno of the all-natural mecca that opened in 2009. "The owner, Stacey Stilts, has thoroughly researched each brand she carries, and her staff is incredibly knowledgeable." Denno's must-haves include Tammy Fender skin care ($72 to $175) as well as DeVita ($34) and Jane Iredale eye shadows ($19 to $29). "Lots of stores sell a mix of nontoxic and mainstream brands, which can be confusing," she says. "Green Line only carries stuff that's completely safe, so you can go nuts."

Located in a superhip, quiet area of Silver Lake, this cozy home-goods, clothing and beauty boutique is a favorite destination of Shailene Woodley's makeup artist Gloria Noto: "It has a very calming vibe, and it's a little California boho. I buy all of my Arcona skin care there -- I especially love the Cranberry Gommage [face-wash bar, $75]." Noto adds that she appreciates the store's highly curated selection: "I don't get overwhelmed."

"Pink offers amazing organic facials in addition to products," says Noto of this ultrafeminine, French-inspired Silver Lake shop (facials from $50). Noto is obsessed with the Eminence Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel: "It smells so good, you could just eat it!" She also pops in to stock up on the brand's tinted moisturizer ($52). "Our skin is our biggest organ, and what we put on it absorbs into our bodies," says Noto. "It's important to take care of ourselves and feed our bodies good things. We put on makeup every day, so over time it makes a huge difference."
