Kristen Saxton Make-up Artistry bio picture
  • Welcome to Kristen Saxton Make-up Artistry!

    Hello Gorgeous! My name is Kristen Saxton and I absolutley LOVE what I do and you are in THE BEST hands with all your make-up needs! Here's a little about me:
  • Well, way back when, I used to be in finance, YES, FINANCE lol After not being satisfied with my career and always having a creative side, I threw caution to the wind (which I recommend to everyone) and I went back to Make-up School! (everyone thought I was crazy) lol

  • Make-up school was absolutley the best time of my life! When I was in there, I knew I absolutley made the right decision and I quickly was able to get my foot in the door of the cosmetics industry, and started as Beauty Expert for Shoppers Drug Mart while finishing school.
  • After grinding it out for a few months there, I got offered every Make-up Artist's dream position, a job for M.A.C cosmetics as an Artist! My team was amazing! After just over a year of proving myself as a talented Make-up Artist and a strong leader, I was extremely excited to be promoted to Assistant Manager for M.A.C. Cosmetics and am now a Fashion show certified M.A.C artist, and am apart of the M.A.C fashion show and event team!
  • I have had the honour of working on numerous fashion shows under the direction of key M.A.C. Senior make-up artists Jane Mckay and Melissa Gibson. I have done make-up for TIFF, the Much Music video awards, and Canadian Screen Awards to just name a few. As amazing and as exciting as doing fashion shows and celebrity events is, the best part of my job is meeting all my brides and repeat clients. They make it all worth my wild and I am so grateful for all the amazing people I've met and continue to meet on this journey :)
  • I am continuing to grow as an artist and cannot wait to see what the future holds for me in this Industry!
  • Just remember life is short, and we are not promised tommorrow, so make sure your LIVE YOUR DREAMS EVERYDAY! I sure have :)
  • Stay Beautiful!
  • Kristen Saxton :)

Before and after

Celebrity Make-up

One of my favorite events to do is the MMVA’s. This year I got the pleasure of doing make-up and male grooming for the ridiculously charming and kind SHEMAR MOORE. Such a beautiful soul inside and out! Please visit makeupbysax on IG to see more behinds the scenes videos from the MMVA’s 2016!!!! :)

 

 

These ladies were fabulous inside and out! I had the privilege of doing make-up for the lovely Mary Walsh and Helen Shaver for the 2016 Canadian screen awards. This was the third year I did make-up for the event and I loved it! This is my work on these STUNNING women!!

 

The 2016 TOM* Toronto Men’s fashion week was incredible. The energy of the event was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I had the pleasure of doing make-up for Paul Mason/fashion santa. He was an absolute please to work with! I can’t wait to do this event next year! Check out some of the runway looks I executed!!!!

 

 

I was chosen to do Make-up for the 2015 Canadian Screen awards! It was honour to do make-up for THE Eugene Levy, Diego Klattenhoff from The Black list and Mark Critch best know from This hour has 22 minutes. Such an awesome experience!

 

 

I had the pleasure of doing make-up for Kellan Lutz, best known from the movies; Twilight, The Expendibles 3, and Immortals. As well as Drew Kennedy from The Bachlorette for the Much Music Video Awards. They were funny, kind and absolute gentleman, not too hard on the eyes either lol. One of the highlights of my career thus far! Here is the final product :)

 

 

Working TIFF this year was amazing! I have worked TIFF in previous years and it’s always exciting and hectic. From having 10 minutes to do a make-up, to going from hotel to hotel room to do make-up, it’s never a dull moment. This year I had the pleasure to do make-up for Danny Trejo, best know from his role in Machete. He was super funny and just over all a great guy. Here he is attending the 2015 Amba Gala, make-up by me.
