Hey lovely!
I’m happy you’re here!

This is not just another site about green beauty.

This is definitely not a blog.

This is a movement towards reclaiming your beauty in a comprehensive way through what to use and how to use it, while addressing your body, mind and spirit.

Healthy beauty goes way deeper than picking out the “right” lipstick.

As an international makeup artist for over two decades, I’ve had the privilege of working with women from over 50 countries, spanning the ages of 13 to 90. I‘ve seen that makeup is only part of the intangible allure of what makes women beautiful.

This site is brimming with helpful resources to help you make positive, healthy lifestyle changes that will transform how you look and feel about your own beauty every day, and at the age you’re at right now.

Below you’ll get a quick overview on what to expect while you’re here and where to find the juiciest bits to get you started – plus, some fun facts about me!

Whether you’re here because someone suggested you look me up, you a saw an article or video that peaked your interest, or you got redirected here when looking for, I hope you’ll stay to look around a while.

Looking for trustworthy advice?

Whether it’s going green or tips for getting the most from your beauty routine, I’ve got articles, interviews, and videos galore from credible professionals in holistic beauty and wellness!

Don’t leave this site until you do this...

1. Download your FREE copy of the Toss the Toxins Toolkit with easy tools to reduce your exposure to toxic chemicals lurking in your beauty cabinet. Plus, simple steps for finding safer alternatives.

I’ve been told I shouldn’t be giving so much away for free in one toolkit, but I want to make it easy for you to get healthier as quickly as possible.

2. If you’re a woman over 40, you’ll also want to grab a copy of my free guide with 10 Makeup & Skin Secrets for radiant, healthy beauty.

Once you’ve downloaded either or both, you’ll be the first to know about special offers, giveaways, and other exclusive insights through my educational, inspirational and sometimes comical, weekly newsletters.

Wondering what happened to Green Beauty Team?

After 7 years it was time to blend Green Beauty Team and Kristen Arnett into one uber-site. I’ve always considered “the team” to include everyone from the pros who write articles, to the readers like you.

They say there’s no “I” in “Team”, but I was actually running 98% of everything single-handedly, while traveling the world as a full-time makeup artist and the separation of the two sites made sense.

Now that beauty education is my main focus, merging the two brands was the next natural step and will allow me to deliver even more goodness to you regularly!

Life-changing transformations

I’ve had the honor to work with thousands of women of all ages and stages in life, from models to CEOs.

I’ve received feedback from innumerable women about how significantly this approach to beauty (through virtual and in-person lessons, online courses, articles, emails, videos, etc.) has helped them feel more empowered, shifted how they see themselves, and noted that others in their lives responded in unexpectedly positive ways.

After working with me, women say they feel more alive, sexy and radiant than they have in years!

I drink buckets of Earl Grey and chai masala, and love to host elaborate tea parties.


If 90s hip-hop is playing, I’m dancing.


I’m a darn fine Italian speaker and cook.


I’m obsessed with my orange fur-baby Gingie, a former street cat from Jersey.
