As a little girl, Cristina was intrigued with makeup. She’d find herself going through makeup bags of all the homes her family would visit. Amazed at the scent, texture and colors and how they all came together to enhance a woman’s beauty she became determined to teach herself. Growing up in the 80’s her inspiration grew from artists like Cyndi Lauper, Madonna and Tina Turner.
All things beauty were her passion, and she had perfected symmetry and color placement before high school. Cristina’s friends would always have her do their makeup and hair for school dances and parties. However, It wouldn’t be until 2009 that she would take her passion to the next level and begin freelancing as an artist. Today her family of 5 is where she gets her motivation and support as she thrives doing what she loves everyday.
Cristina launched her makeup and hair business diving deep into photo and video shoots and fashion. She loved having that kind of creative freedom and it was great for her portfolio. Working with models and photographers helped her understand lighting which is imperative when doing makeup.
She fell in love with Bridal and had found her niche of natural beauty artistry when she would do her sisters wedding. It became her purpose to make every bride she worked with feel as comfortable and confident as possible, making them feel their most beautiful while still see themselves in the mirror.
Cristina envisioned and desired an intimate space where she would be able to meet her clients and have them feel at home.
Her studio is warm and inviting, while giving her clients complete privacy to the outside world. It’s spacious enough to bring your entire bridal party, and did we mention there were snacks!?!
No one wants or likes to be vulnerable in front of strangers. We all know how uncomfortable it can be sitting in a salon with that cape on with dozens of people walking by while we have mop head. Cristina’s studio is by appointment and only booked for one client at a time.
