Paige Padgett, a leading authority on green beauty, has never been afraid to go against the grain. 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. It was no surprise, then, 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.
Now considered a leading authority on ‘green beauty’ Paige is the Green Beauty Expert for Dasani ECOmmunity Facebook Page, DailyGlow.com, Jillian Michaels Wellness Team and founded Paigepadgett.com, a green beauty website. In addition, she is often sought out by the press and has been featured in Shape, Elle, GenLux, Beautyblitz.com, Tresdope.com, The Los Angeles Times, Vegetarian Times, Natural Health and Whole Life Times Magazine. Her television, radio, podcasts and live appearances include “Martha Stewart Radio,” “San Diego Live,” “The Jillian Michaels Radio Show,” “Green Is Good,” “The Healthy Voyager” and “The Jillian Michaels Wellness Cruise.” As if her makeup artistry and commitment to eco-friendly products weren't enough to keep her busy, the motivated beauty maven put herself through UCLA, obtained her aesthetician's license, and spent four years working in a salon, perfecting her techniques and making contacts in the fashion and entertainment industries. She then launched herself as a freelance makeup artist, and in 2006 she developed an all-in-one cosmetic kit, The Look Book, for renowned fashion designer Randolph Duke. Next, Padgett began doing makeup for the gorgeous trainer Jillian Michaels, of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. A season later, she was also handling makeup for Bob Harper and later Anna Kournikova.
At the same time that Padgett was building her professional career, she began researching the “green scene” of cosmetics, investigating ingredients, packaging and chemicals to help reduce our "CCF," cosmetic carbon footprint. In 2006, Paige launched a professional green kit-unheard of in her industry at the time. Padgett is committed to using the highest-quality environmentally kind products without sacrificing an ounce of beauty.
Paige’s mission is to inspire women to be sexy and civilized by reducing their Cosmetic Carbon Footprint (CCF) without sacrificing an ounce of glamour or taste.
