Hey! I’m Christina.

I love makeup -- like, so much -- but I also love individuality. 

I think uniqueness is everything. Beauty comes in so many forms and I don’t believe in covering it up. I’m passionate about working with clients to find what they love most about themselves and then enhancing it for the camera. Bridal makeup should make you feel like your best self and that’s the experience I intend to deliver. So let’s chat about it! Tell me what you love and we’ll design the perfect bridal look together. 

I’m also super excited to be able to say that I recently won The Knot’s Best of Weddings Award for 2018. 

In addition to bridal work, I have editorial, beauty and runway experience with some awesome designers and publications. I’ve worked on many different skin types and tones and have had the opportunity to create a range of looks from no-makeup makeup to avante garde designs. I think that sets me apart from the traditional bridal makeup artist. I have a solid understand of how lighting affects makeup and how a look will read on camera. It’s important that we create something that will not only look great in person but will translate well in photos and will hold up to the various types of light you’ll encounter throughout your big day. If you’d like to hear me nerd out about it, just ask!

A little about me -- 

These days, when I’m not busy painting faces, I’m chasing my 1 year-old daughter, Mia. She’s the bomb. We spend our days playing with LEGO and coloring and definitely not eating the crayons. 

I really dig all things physics and astronomy (what makeup artist doesn’t?) and I love food and good movies. My favorite days are the lazy ones spent with my husband and daughter at our home in Cortlandt. And also the days when I can successfully talk my husband into bringing home sushi for dinner. It’s a tie. 

But anyway...I’d love to hear more about what you’re looking for in a makeup artist so fill out the contact form on the next page and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
