Kristen started as a makeup artist in the fashion and commercial industry. With years of experience with models on set and behind the scenes of Fashion Week, she decided to bring all of the skills she acquired to cater to real life women who want a sleek, high end wedding day look.
Wedding makeup for brides who are going for a more modern, sleek look. The goal is to keep you looking and feeling like yourself, but still special for your big day!
Are lashes included? Lashes are included with all services. How many artists will be there the day of my wedding? For parties of 7 or more a second artist will always be provided at no additional cost. If you have a party of less than 7 but want a little extra sleep that morning (no judgement there!) there would be a fee for each additional artist provided. Do you travel? Yes! Travel fees may apply depending on your location. Do I need to do a trial? Trials are not required but are highly suggested. They give you a chance to meet with your artist one on one and get to really explore what you're looking for in your wedding day makeup. Trials are also a great way to see how your makeup wears throughout the day. This way you can give your artist feedback on what you loved or any tweaks you'd like to make.
I hired Kristen for my wedding and engagement shoot photos, and she did not disappoint! From the beginning she was very professional and prompt with answering any questions or concerns either myself or my bridal party had. Kristen was able to give everyone their dream look and many of my guests and friends still talk about how natural and glowing myself and my girls looked. I was very nervous about my makeup for my wedding day because I do not wear a lot of makeup on a normal day. Kristen was very accommodating and listened to my concerns and what I wanted. She had me still look and feel natural while also glow. Her makeup was not "cakey" or too heavy on myself or any of the girls. I had 10 girls which included MOB and Jr. Bridesmaid and Kristen was able to accommodate everyone and their desired look. Kristen was very reasonably priced and all of the girls chose to put on eyelashes as well and she included that in her price. I would highly recommend Kristen for any event you need your makeup done!! You will not regret it!
I recently got married and hired Kristen to do my makeup for myself and 7 other girls. Kristen was prompt in responding to emails and quickly set a date for my trial. She was able to provide beautiful makeup with very little instruction from me. It was nice to have the opportunity to have Kristen do my makeup on more than one occasion. I was very happy that the makeup was not too heavy or overdone - which was an issue I was seeing with many other makeup artists in the area. The reasonable price also included eyelashes, which really helped to complete the look. Kristen was so chill and easy to talk to - which I very much appreciated on the day of my wedding, especially since I was so anxious after months of planning. I definitely recommend booking her!
KMR Makeup NY is a great find! Kristen was AMAZING!
