“I’m more stoked today to be a makeup artist then I’ve ever been in the last 13 years as an artist.”

My name is Kristen Krause and I’m the proud owner of Rock & Royal Makeup Studio…. And I’m more stoked today to be a makeup artist then I’ve ever been in the last 13 years as an artist. I’m focused on working hard to stay current in this rapidly changing industry, and loving every day!

My makeup journey started simply with a taupe lipstick & liner, which led to the purchases of many lipstick & liners, which evolved into enough makeup to fill an expandable rolling makeup case! It was the birth of a full blown makeup obsession. Prior to Rock & Royal I’ve had over a decade of experience to master my craft; working for MAC Cosmetics, FOX Broadcasting, Smashbox, Shiseido and having my own freelance business on the side.

I feel like a multi-faceted artist, confidently taking jobs in all aspects of the makeup industry. My professional background includes: Bridal, Magazine Covers & Segments, Television, Music/Corporate Videos, Celebrity Makeup, Apparel Catalogs, Modeling Portfolios, Runway and Hot-Date Night Makeup!

I’m devoted to make you feel pretty or feel like a Rock Star, your choice… It’s my only goal. Anytime, anywhere, any place.
