I believe in high tech, high heels and high fashion. I believe in opulence and luxury. I believe every woman is a natural beauty. I believe in pretty not parabens. I believe in olive oil not mineral oil. I believe in high performance without the high price. I believe in being sexy and civilized.
Like her diverse multi-cultural background, Paige Padgett has never fit into a particular pre-made mold. An irreverent, free spirit, she follows her instincts and her heart. At the mere age of 12 she announced to her family that she was no longer eating red meat. Ironically, her half-Native American grandfather was a cattle rancher. So it was not surprising that when beauty experts said she couldn’t provide safe and eco-friendly makeup artistry and still create beautiful faces, she set out to prove them wrong—and did. Paige has never been afraid to go against the grain.
Paige is now considered the leading authority on ‘green beauty’, and is often sought out by the press. She has been featured as a green beauty expert in Shape, Elle and GenLuxe and quoted in Good Housekeeping, Vegetarian Times, Women’s Health and Natural Health; featured on beautyblitz.com; has been a contributing writer for Les Nouvelles Esthetique & Spa and writes her own green beauty blog at paigepadgett.com in addition to being constantly in demand for consulting and artistry for print, television, runway and red carpet events.
Paige has always had strong convictions. She put herself through UCLA, obtained her Aestheticians license, and spent 4 years working in a salon perfecting her technique and making contacts in the fashion and entertainment industries. From there Paige launched herself as a freelance artist, dividing her time between fashion shows for Diane von Furstenberg, Badgley Mischka and Agent Provacateur; and advertising and commercial work for Nike, Wii, Sony, Gateway, and The National Dairy Council ‘Got Milk’. In 2006, Paige developed an all-in-one cosmetic kit ‘The Look Book’ for renowned fashion designer, Randolph Duke. The success of the makeup collection was overwhelming – the first run of 1,500 kits sold out in 6 minutes, and Paige had arrived!
However, her global conscience kept pushing her steadily in one direction and Paige began delving into chemically safe alternatives to the often toxic and eco-unfriendly products she found herself applying daily to her own face and the faces of others. As a result, she launched her own 100% green makeup kit in 2007. Now Paige is committed to using the highest quality of environmentally kind products without sacrificing an ounce of beauty or taste. She creates impeccably beautiful faces while striving to be ecologically responsible and chemically safe in her cosmetic choices and practices. Her brand of beauty is chemically safe and eco conscious with respect to the individual and environment.
From her position as Randolph Duke’s consultant, Paige moved on to doing makeup for the gorgeous trainer Jillian Michaels of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser”. By the following season, she was a Key makeup artist, handling Zen-like Bob Harper as well. Even better, Jillian recruited Paige to be the Green Beauty Expert for her jillianmichaels.com Wellness Team.
