She always wears black, but she has the most colorful mind.

Kristen is a freelance makeup artist, certified through MUD Makeup Designory (based out of New York and LA). Her certification and experience includes beauty, airbrush, bridal, studio, high fashion, and special effects makeup. Kristen was born and raised in Knoxville, TN which is where she does the majority of her work. However, she has a passion for traveling and has had the opportunity to do work in both New York and California. From photo shoots to fashion shows to weddings, Kristen has had the opportunity to work with some of Knoxville's best photographers and stylists. However, makeup is not the only skill Kristen has under her belt. She is also a hairstylist and has a degree in Mass Communications. Through her love of media and beauty, Kristen is hoping to be able to combine the two and extend her work into the production and entertainment industry very soon. She is a creative spirit and a lover of people. Having the opportunity to wake up every day and combine her passion of art and beauty with making people feel beautiful makes makeup artistry her dream job.

"I love people. I am passionate about connecting with people on a personal level because everyone always has a different story to tell. I learn something new from each and every one of my clients. As my profession, I get to combine my love for art and beauty with making someone feel like their most beautiful self and that is why I love what I do."      -Kristen
