Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Kristen Buchholz. I’ve been a professional freelance makeup artist since 2009, but found my passion for makeup as a little girl playing in my mom’s makeup. I feel so fortunate to be able to do what I’m passionate about and at the same time connect with amazing people. One of the most rewarding parts of what I do is helping people to see their inner beauty reflected on the outside. Over the last several years I’ve had the ability to freelance for a major cosmetic brand, Benefit Cosmetics, and collaborate with several local photographers, models, and designers on various projects.

I specialize in makeup application for:

  • Wedding/bridal, engagement, and boudoir
  • Special occasions
  • Editorial, collaborative photo shoots, print/media
  • Senior and family portraits
  • Videography for short films and YouTube videos
  • Makeup consultations/lessons

Aside from being a freelance makeup artist, I’m also a wife and mom to 3 beautiful daughters and son (coming Sept 2017). My family is my number one passion and inspire me to continue doing what I love!

I look forward to connecting with you and helping you with your project or special event!
