natural beauty buff | paige padgett, celebrity makeup artist

As I continue my search for cleaner cosmetics, my No. 1 source for green beauty inspiration is celebrity makeup artist Paige Padgett.

I’ve been lurking on Paige’s webpages for a while now, trying to soak up as many of her makeup application tips as possible.

See, when it comes to natural beauty, I geek out on skin care — makeup is a bit of an afterthought for me. I just try to keep it simple.

Paige, a licensed aesthetician, proves that makeup can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. Her hands have painted the faces of Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper and Anna Kournikova for television shoots, magazine covers and the like.

But, you’ll notice in her product picks below that she loves multi-purpose products and makeup that doesn’t require a lot of fuss.

I can dig that. But I probably still need Paige to show me the ropes of simple-yet-perfected clean makeup application. Here’s to hoping I get on her client list soon! :)

Until then, I’ll continue poring over her “green the look” features on her fabulous revamped website and combing through her product recommendations on her new OpenSky pop-up shop she curated with two of my other favorite clean beauties, Siobhan and Alexandra of No More Dirty Looks.

Have fun peeking through Paige’s beauty bag!

As usual, I’ve starred the items in Paige’s list that I also use and love.
