Kristen did an amazing job on not just me, but my bridal party as well. Everyone was so pleased with her work and I believe she has gotten a few new weddings from mine. Kristen really knows her stuff and how to create a unique look for each bride. She took everything into consideration with creating a look, like my complexion, skin type, dress, wedding colors, wedding style, and hair! Her unique mix of traditional and airbrush foundation also made such a difference and it lasted all day. I recommend her to any bride looking for the best of the best!
I did multiple trials in my search for a wedding makeup artist- let me save you the trouble. Kristen did a fantastic job on my trial makeup, and as a bonus she is very kind and fun to chat with!
I told her my concerns about heavy foundation... she managed to make my skin look perfect (it isn't!!) but I didn't look overly "made up" at all. She also understood my request for a slightly dramatic but not over the top eye and lip. The whole look really complemented my features and cool skin tones, and it still looked good 12 hours later! I've booked her to do my wedding.
Kristen did an fantastic job on my make up for my wedding this summer! I had some pictures of contoured/highlighted face makeup with very dramatic eyes which would involve a lot of work and she tweaked the look I showed her in the photos to compliment my face perfectly. I also am allergic to certain preservatives in make up but I didn't have to worry since she thoroughly checked all her products for me in advance. The products Kristen uses look very good and are very high quality. She was great to work with and also has great references which I used for getting my hair done which saved me time, best wedding vendor I worked with and make me look amazing for my big day :)
Working with Kristen has been so easy and fun. She is extremely professional and would get back to me right away when I had questions leading up to the big day. She made my make up look gorgeous and natural - not caked on! She has an impressive background and experience and really listened to me, while using her own creativity and expertise. She did an incredible job and I'm so happy I chose her! She is also just a sweet, fun person that we all felt comfortable around and enjoyed our time together. I highly recommend her!
For my wedding we decided to go completely non-traditional. My husband and I had our cocktail hour before our ceremony at sunset, and then went right into the wedding reception all in the same outdoor venue. Because of our non-traditional format, I wanted a more dramatic, evening makeup look. I had several trials with different makeup artists and either looked too overdone or too natural. At my trial with Kristen we played around with the lighting to see just how my makeup would look from sunset to a candle-lit reception, and she tweaked the look from there. She was totally confident in doing makeup for different lighting/photography scenarios. It completely assured me that on my actual wedding night my makeup would look perfect in the environment we created. I would recommend Kristen to the traditional or nontraditional bride as she can create very soft and natural looks, daring and dramatic and anything in between. I looked flawless and our pictures came out beyond beautiful. Kristen, you are truly an expert- thank you so much!
I was in a wedding this year and took Kristen's card because I had a feeling I would be engaged soon:) Well I just got engaged and called her asap to do a trial for my upcoming wedding this February. My trial was amazing and she knew exactly what to do for me. I showed her a few inspirational photos and told her that I really wanted a glamorous look. She gave me exactly that without looking overdone. And the makeup lasted all day! She made my eyes look bigger and brighter and my skin looked flawless. She really is very talented.
My son just had his wedding and the bride booked Kristen to cater to a very large group of women. She did a wonderful job and was so nice to spend the morning with. She really added to the day not only with her talent but with her personality as well. When she said that she was hoping to be voted best of weddings again next year I made sure that I would sign up and post how amazing she was. I don't wear a lot of makeup everyday but I didn't feel too made up, while still looking glamorous. She is an asset to any bride's special day.
I met Kristen at a bridal expo in NY. She was advertising her first ever promotion to win a day-of-makeup package for the bride plus two ladies, so I entered... and I won! Kristen was fabulous!!! My make-up was flawless after the trial (for my rehearsal dinner) and flawless for the wedding day! I felt like me, but prettier. AND, we had a mishap on the big day with electricity, but Kristen didn't lose her cool, she found a window and did me up in natural light. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her!
(I looked up her prices after I won the package, and it was comparable/slightly cheaper than other places I was looking at in Brooklyn/Manhattan area)
I have worked with Kristen on multiple occasions and I have not been disappointed! Her work amazing and she is exactly the type of person you want around on your wedding day, cool, grounded, and super fun! I have asked her for a range of looks and she always gets it right.
My (now) husband and I eloped to NYC this summer and I booked Kristen for makeup. I was a bit nervous since we hadn't a trial run but Kristen made me look absolutely fantastic. I felt like a more glamorous version of myself and the makeup wore all day. I could not be more happy with my decision to book Kristen. She was also a pleasure to spend the morning with. Book her for your wedding!
Kristen did the most amazing job on my makeup for my wedding. Our wedding had a romantic/rustic inspired theme and I was nervous that my makeup would not match the overall look that I was going for. I had several trials with other makeup artists and they weren't able to give me the soft, romantic look that I wanted. At my trial with Kristen I was blown away with her ability to make my vision a reality. She assured me that I had nothing to worry about for the big day and that we could still tweak the makeup look if I felt inclined to do so. Her confidence and knowledge on all different trends and application techniques was very impressive and comforting. On my actual wedding day Kristen immediately made me feel relaxed and my makeup looked even more beautiful than it did on the trial. I would recommend Kristen to ANY and EVERYONE. Thank you so much Kristen!
Excellence At It's Best.. I had the pleasure of being introduced to Kristen for my wedding makeup. She did an amazing job getting us all ready for the big day and stayed calm under all the pressure and time constraints!! She added that special vintage look I was looking for to put everything all together. She is a true master to her trade!!
Choosing Kristen to do my makeup for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made! Kristen is a passionate artist who is unbelievably talented and incredibly personal. She was attentive to my "natural makeup" requests and made me look absolutely gorgeous on the day of my wedding, during my trial session, and during my engagement shoot. It also helped that she was super friendly, affordable, and willing to travel!
I would highly highly recommend her to anyone looking for flawless professional makeup, and can't wait to use her again for future events!
I wear very little makeup on a day to day basis and I did two trials before I found Kristen. She has a very unique style that is really natural, yet ultra flawless and beautiful. She layered and layered her applications but when I looked in the mirror, I didn't look overdone at all. I don't know how she does it. If you want to look like a more put together version of yourself but still yourself, definitely book Kristen for your wedding.
I cannot say enough about Kristen. She made my skin flawless and I have never seen my eyes look so amazing. I had so many photos and ideas and got really overwhelmed. She was super patient with me, which I appreciate. She explained what from the photos could translate well on my complexion and what probably wouldn't look as good as I thought. She was so right. She created a really nice look that was the perfect balance between natural and glam. She was also so helpful when it came to planning out the timeline for the morning of the wedding and was so much fun to be around. I also love the fact that she knows so much about weddings too. We chatted so much!
Kristen was great! All of the girls looked amazing, and it was relaxing having someone so skilled and easy to talk to helping us get ready. We had girls with different complexions and ethnicities, some more comfortable wearing makeup than others, and everyone looked gorgeous. Also, the makeup lasted all night with just a few lipstick touchups, plus we just got our pictures back and everyone looked great in the pictures too!
I was in a bridal party recently and Kristen did such an amazing job on all of us... I am absolutely using her for my upcoming Wedding. She was super sweet and fun to spend the morning with and her makeup style is just perfect. Not too made up and not too natural. She really knows how to do makeup for both in person and on camera. Oh and my makeup was still in tact for the after party:)
I found Kristen on the knot because she was voted Best of Weddings and she definitely deserves the title. She did my entire bridal party and made everyone look flawless. I had such a mixed group and she gave a unique yet cohesive look to everyone. Our makeup lasted all day and night, thanks to her natural yet long wearing makeup style. I highly recommend her to any bride.
Kristen did my makeup for my engagment photo session. I wanted to look like me but an enhanced photo ready version of myself- Kristen achieved just that. She put the perfect colors together to enhance my features while defining my eyes better than anyone has before. I loved her work and would recommend her to anyone who wants to look like a more enhanced version of themselves and not like a drag queen or Kim k!
PS: kristen is also really down to earth and was great to work with in general
I was recently in my sister's wedding, and as a gift to all of the wedding party as well as the mother of the bride, my sister treated us all to makovers! Kristen did a fabulous job on all of us, including Mom, who is in her 70's and sufferring from Alzheimer's disease. Mom asked Kristen repeatedly which make up she was using, how she was applying it, and Kristen patiently answered her each time. Her sweet and caring touch with Mom still chokes me up. I would definately recommend her and use her again!
