10 Things You Should Know About Me (Your Beauty Editor On Call)

Scroll down to content

No. 1: My name is Kristen.

No. 2: I’ve worked as the beauty editor of CosmoGIRL!, beauty director of Seventeen and executive editor of TotalBeauty.com.

No. 3: I think my double-jointed arms make me especially equipped for French braiding my own hair.

No. 4: My go-to dirty hairstyle is, obviously, two French braids – tucked up into what most of my male colleagues call a “Heidi” style.

No. 5: I’m a stickler for sunscreen – my grandmother and father both have had large chunks of melanoma removed, so don’t hate me for religiously urging you to wear it.

No. 6: I have a thing for perfect, white teeth. Might be because a girl knocked out my front teeth with a brick as a kid. Don’t ask.

No. 7: I hate to blow dry my own hair, which is why I mostly let my natural wavy (read: frizzy) hair air dry.

No. 8: My husband is a nail biter and I’m constantly on his case to quit. It’s messing up his perfect teeth.

No. 9: My goal in life, though a tad pathetic, is to have flawless skin that doesn’t require foundation. I’m sure you’re with me on this one.

No. 10: Though I would like to say a three-products-or-less beauty routine and sparse medicine cabinet/shower caddy would be so refreshing and streamlined, I’m a sucker for the latest and greatest beauty technologies. I never get tired of trying new things – one of the best aspects of my job.

Now that you know a bit about me, I want to hear about YOU! And start firing off your beauty questions because I’m here to answer them with a little help from my hair, makeup and skin guru friends.

  1. I want to know your trick for air drying frizzy hair! What’s your secret? I can’t imagine you walk out the door with frizzy hair! Please share!

  2. I love this! Can’t wait to hear your advice. My first question: I have fair skin, but I don’t feel like wearing sunscreen (I know you don’t approve)! Is there a powder sunscreen that you love that I can wear over my tinted moisturizer that won’t leave me looking chalky?

  3. LOVE the blog!!! I am so excited for you!! I do have a beauty question….can you recommend a moisturizer with rentinol. I am in desperate need!! Thanks lady!!
