Celebrity MakeUp Artist
Charlie Green is an English MakeUp artist with a colorful and glamorous career. She has been working with makeup for over 25 years and from humble beginnings in London her career path led to 25 years living and working in Paris & New York, and she is now based in North Scottsdale, Arizona. Originally her plans were to train to become an architect, but her fascination with angles, form and planes soon settled on women’s beauty and bone structure. Says Green : I developed my signature style as I was tired of seeing women and models given the same makeup look wherever they went, makeup should NOT be color-by-numbers ! When my client sits in my makeup chair to me she is a blank canvas with her own unique set of features and I work hard to emphasize her finer qualities crafted around their bone structure, skin tone and lifestyle. We work together and I always explain what I am doing and why, as I apply makeup.
Aside from creating beautiful makeup looks for magazines and advertising campaigns, Charlie has been the mastermind behind several beauty launches and her expertise is often called upon as a consultant to established makeup companies looking to revamp their current line of products. She is particularly proud of her work with Victorias Secret and is credited by them as creating the look for their ‘Angels’. After working on photoshoots with Victorias Secret for many years they hired her to become their spokesperson, travel internationally to promote the brand and helm their infamous runway show, which she dryly refers to as ‘the best 60 minute television commercial under the guise of a fashion show’ !! Green’s roster of makeup collaborations also include creating a product line for Marks & Spencer (UK), Bourjois Paris (a division of Chanel) and helping to launch Sephora in the USA from its native France.
Known for her signature style of ‘Subtle, sexy skin with alluring eyes and attention to detail, her skills were picked up by high fashion magazines Vogue, Allure, Harpers Bazaar & Elle to name a handful. Designers such as Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Calvin Klein, Donna Karen and Betsey Johnson booked her for their runway shows, and she became personal makeup artist for Tory Burch, Heidi Klum and Martha Stewart for over a decade. Charlie’s ability to quickly assess and communicate what beauty advice her client needs has seen her demo her makeup skills on many television shows. Those shows include Project Runway, Good Morning America & The Today Show.
Charlie’s supermodel clientele include Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Adrianna Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Christy Brinkley, Elle McPhearson, CIndy Crawford & Kate Moss among many others. Some of her celebrity clientele include Bette Midler, Liza Minelli, Martha Stewart, Tory Burch, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, Rachel McAdams, Katie Holmes, Elizabeth Hurley, Jewel, Kelly Clarkson, and Courtney Love.
Her transition to Arizona stemmed from her admiration for the natural beauty here and fond memories of many road trips and vacations here while based in NYC.
Charlie’s natural transition into mentoring and education started by encouraging the younger generation of aspiring artists, and she educates country wide holding career keynotes with The American Beauty Tour, The MakeUp Show and The Powder Group. The high point of being a beauty educator was sealed with an offer from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco where she holds a position as a Guest Professor and has taught Beauty Merchandising for several semesters.
Charlie brings beauty to you with her ‘by appointment only’ sessions at Skin Revision in Carefree, Arizona. A makeup session with Charlie is a personal education in Beauty. She believes personal and age-appropriate beauty is enhanced by makeup and certainly more than skin deep.
To quote Charlie “my aim is to help women in the Valley ‘Be themselves, and the best version possible. I love to share the beauty knowledge I have picked up through the years and hope to be seeing you in Carefree soon !”
