PRAISE

Thank you for doing such incredible makeup!!! xo
–Beth Behrs, Actress in Two Broke Girls

Thank you so much for making me look & feel beautiful for the Gap shoot this weekend! I felt like I was in such great hands with you looking out for me.
-Jenn Rogien, Costume Designer for “GIRLS” and “Orange is the New Black”

Kristen is a breath of fresh air. Not only was her work beautiful and on brand, but she used all natural and organic products. After working in the beauty and fashion industry for over 10 years, I’ve finally found my go-to make-up artist.
-Ruth Kallens, Intermix

I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Kristen! Her technique is flawless, and she was totally cool with answering my endless questions about the ingredients and purpose of each of the pure, green products she used on my skin. As an author I often have to get “camera-ready” and usually after getting my makeup done for an event, I can’t wait to wash it off. But on the evening after Kristen did my makeup for a shoot for French TV, I seriously wished I had a date planned! I didn’t want to remove the beauty she’d bestowed on my face. Kristen rocks, and I can’t wait to work with her again!
–Stefanie Iris Weiss, author of EcoSex

I wanted to let you know that Nicole (Sullivan) absolutely loved you! She’d highly recommended you to anyone. We all thought she looked great. Thank you again.
-Todd D., Associate Director and National Media Relations for March of Dimes

Kristen, you and your fabulous Green Beauty Team are masters of eco makeup! Everyone was so delightful and so professional, even given the tight time constraints we had to work with. You enhanced everyone’s natural beauty and we so appreciate your passion. Keep those green beauty tips coming!
-Casey Jones, Eileen Fisher Inc.

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your amazing work with us yesterday at the Dr.Hauschka/Whole Foods event. Our booth was definitely a success, in large part due to you!
–Kirsten S., Account Executive at Piece Mattie PR.

Our company director and owner were raving about you. They simply loved you!
–Barbara B., Marketing Manager at Youngblood Cosmetics

We are such fans of yours and what you stand for with non-toxic beauty! Additionally, Green Beauty Team is such an amazing resource of information for those looking to ‘green’ their beauty routine. Couldn’t be happier that you founded such a wonderful site!
-Juice Beauty

I had the chance and the opportunity to work with Kristen during my previous professional path – for a cosmetic Brand. Both her know-how in make-up applications and her abilities to master in depth training approaches allow us to work efficiently – Her wide expertise allows her to provide perfect and adjusted training tools – Indeed, she is capable of training many profiles from retail staff (with limited knowledge in make up) to more expert ones – her professionalism and personality make her one of the most efficient brand trainer I have worked with – She knows how to leverage both a Brand DNA and sell-out. She is very good and also very creative. I do recommend her and I will for sure rework with her in the future.
-Emilie Thamin, Operational Marketing Director at Burberry Beauty

Photo Shoots

Kristen is incredible. I was blown away by her talent on my photoshoot. Not only is she an amazing makeup artist, but she genuinely cares about her clients and the end results of the photos. She stood by my side all day and coached me through my photoshoot and gave me tips as well as guidance and I can’t wait to work with her again. She’s beyond amazing and I recommend her to anyone looking for clean, green beauty!
-Amie Valpone, founding editor-in-chief of The Healthy Apple

Kristen is my very favorite make up artist! I couldn’t believe how well the all-natural makeup held up on a 90-degree day during my music video shoot! And the next day – after 16 hours of shooting – my skin looked fresh and revived. Kristen, I love you! You are a miracle!!!
-Ilse, Pop Singer

Thank you again for such a wonderful, smooth shoot. I appreciated your flexibility with changes and your professionalism in creating some truly beautiful shots. Our creative team is very pleased!
-Erin Holland, Art Producer, Retail Division at The Museum of Modern Art

Kristen is incredible! I commissioned Kristen to make ME look good (as photographer). Kristen transformed a timid business woman, into a WOW – work-of-art. Painting on a character, is far more than the make-up – she also coached her on how to truly wear it. Stances, moods, expressions and all of the prompts that only an upbeat female could provide to help her feel amazing about herself – thereby making me look that much better too! We had a blast – she’s fun to work with, PASSIONATE and professional – Kristen is top shelf!
-Brian Geraths, Photographer

Kristen was referred to me by a mutual business contact, when we were seeking a makeup artist for a celebrity photo/video shoot. We needed a talented artist, able to craft a stunning look in a fast-paced shoot, and speak on-camera. Kristen shined on all accounts and was a pleasure to work with along the way – I would certainly do it again.
-Jonathan Davids, Founder & CEO at Influicity

Kristen is highly organized and personable make up artist professional with a diverse range of skills and technical proficiency. I attribute Kristen’s range of diversity to her time spent between Milano and New York. Kristen possesses a remarkably sensitive eye, which allows her to transform her subject into a mesmerizing canvas of beauty.
Kristen is collaborative conduit and encourages an environment of teamwork, but can still can remain true to her vision. I can count Kristen as one of my favorite collaborators because of the vernacular she speaks with makeup. If you need a makeup artist whose work speaks volumes, Kristen is the one for you!
-Asanti’ Austin, Fashion Stylist

Makeup & Beauty Lessons

I truly felt wonderful – rejuvenated, fresh, and NOT like anyone else, but (the real) me. I learned that the right makeup (and layering) will give you that boost and take away that tired look – and feeling.
-Ruth

I had a Skype makeup consult with Kristen and I HIGHLY recommend her services. Even with all the makeup classes I had to take as working at a spa, I learned so much more from her – and all with green makeup!
-Angela Peck

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Virtual Beauty Lesson with you and how much I learned! I wish I had known about you years ago. During our session I realized that I have been doing my makeup the same way for twenty years and as I age, there are things that I can and should do differently. I also appreciated someone giving me honest and helpful advice on products and techniques who wasn’t trying to sell me something. It really was one of the best uses of my time and money that I have spent. Thank you!
-Rachel Krauss

I just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful and informative day today! You were right, my husband loved it! In fact, he was blown away! He said I didn’t look like I was wearing much make up, but that I looked really great! He was funny, he put his glasses on and looked at me really close and just said, “Wow!” Which of course just thrills me to death! I’m also happy with how it lasted today – some really great products! I have been really unsure about the lips – UNTIL now…seeing the side by side is amazing! My lips to look so full! It’s surprising how much difference something that subtle can look.
-Sue H.

As I finished putting on my make up today, I wanted to thank you again.  I feel much more confident in my application with each day.  Your instruction and help in choosing my foundation, bronzer, lip color, etc. was crucial.  My friends noticed right away and said I was glowing.  Who knew a little makeup could lift my spirits so!
–Terri P.

Thank you so much for today’s lesson. Gee, I thought I knew something about makeup application. I’m really glad I came and got so much out of working with you. Love the eyes and the way the colors work. You’re awesome and skilled at applying makeup – a true artist 🙂 I’d be happy to recommend you to my friends.
-Sarita C.

As a model I’m used to getting caked with makeup and it’s a constant battle to get my skin clear again. It wasn’t until I worked with Kristen Arnett that I realized how irritated my face was and that there’s a much easier way to take care of it. It seems obvious but facial products should be all natural. Natural and green in the sense that you could eat them because your skin essentially does! After picking up just a few tips from her and emptying my bathroom of all those drug store who-really-knows-what’s-in-it products my face has never felt so smooth or happy! I’ve even convinced half the girls in my dorm to start doing the same so it’s spreading!
-Kristina B.

Rachel enjoyed her time with you immensely and is having fun practicing [her makeup] before school starts. She is getting lots of compliments on her makeup and offers to give her girlfriends a few tips if they would like. She came home and sat down and wrote many of the things you taught her, so she wouldn’t forget! Too cute! And I’m pleased too, that she took the more water and food recommendations to heart and is improving her diet. So you were right, she was almost literally soaking up all of your good advice. Yay!
-Kati, the mom of 14 year-old Rachel

Pro to Pro Mentoring

Before meeting Kristen Arnett, I possessed some basic makeup skills and a set of brushes. I wanted a career as a commercial makeup artist, but had no idea how to get there. Kristen is not only an exceptional makeup artist, she is also an intelligent and intuitive business woman and an inspiring mentor and teacher. I have known Kristen for over five years, and since meeting her, my life and career have seen opportunities I never would have thought possible. I am a full-time, freelance makeup artist, booking jobs nine or more months in advance, because of the skills I learned directly from Kristen. Her in-depth knowledge of green beauty practices and the fashion industry, and her keen artistic eye, make her an invaluable resource for anyone looking to improve, grow, or focus his/her career in the beauty industry.
-Jessica Belknap, green makeup artist

Weddings

You and your team did such a fabulous job on our hair and makeup. Each time that night when I went to look in the bathroom mirror it looked flawless and not melted or ruffled a bit. Same with the photos I’m seeing now. I felt so beautiful everyone kept complimenting my hair and makeup and most importantly of all my husband LOVED how it came out and he doesn’t even like styled hair or makeup at all normally. My mom and sister looked great as well. Thank you!!!
-Marlene B., Eugene, OR

I also just wanted to say thank you again for everything.  You were so patient with me, my mother and my mother-in-law throughout the whole process. Everyone was RAVING about how my makeup looked, and all of my bridesmaids loved both you, and your assistant.  I absolutely love your style of makeup, because it truly makes you look like yourself, only better. And it was the perfect look for my wedding, and I cannot wait to see the pictures!
-Kathryn, NY

Over the past five years, I have worked with Kristen Arnett on several event- and media-related projects, and I have always enjoyed our collaboration.

Kristen is a truly special artist and an absolute professional.  Her work is simply beautiful.  It also bears noting that, in an industry where client needs and preferences can change from moment to moment, Kristen has always been flexible and helpful.  She has exceeded our expectations every time.

Kristen’s commitment to using eco-friendly and natural makeup products is something our clients (and I) respect and appreciate very much.
-Karen Bussen, Wedding and Event Planner, Book Author

When you choose Kristen Arnett for your wedding day, she will not only make you look beautiful, she will make you *feel* beautiful, too. Not only is Kristen an extremely talented makeup artist, she is simply a fabulous person, with an unbeatable personality. If you’re lucky enough to book Kristen, you will be one happy bride. I very highly recommend her!
