Santina Emilio-Lloyd

My name is Santina, and I am a Professional Makeup Artist. I’ve been active in the beauty industry for 15+ years in New York City, and have recently relocated to the UK.

As an artist, I love making women feel good about themselves. What’s unique about my approach is that I always ask questions and listen first. I find this so important because my client’s personal vision, needs, and comfort are the utmost priority. I love getting to know my brides, and enjoy hearing all about their wedding details.

My aesthetic style as an artist is soft, fresh, timeless & elegant. I have a passion for, and focus on creating polished bridal looks. I really love to enhance client’s natural beauty, and I like for my clients to look & feel like the best version of themselves. I also make it a point to have open communication with my clients by encouraging feedback, listening, and asking the right questions.

I first got my start in the beauty world at age 18 working for Christian Dior.  It was there that my passion for cosmetics started. Since then I’ve worked for many top beauty brands such as Chanel, Nars, Armani, YSL, Chantecaille, Hourglass, Laura Mercier, Motives and many more. I’ve also done runway makeup for many top designers during New York Fashion Week and worked on the set of Bravo’s TV Series, The Fashion Show.

I believe to never stop learning & growing your craft. I make sure to stay current on trends and innovations and am constantly striving to improve my technique.

Client Reviews

  • "Santina did my makeup for my wedding day and I could not have been happier! She is amazingly talented and also a pleasure to work with. I did makeup trials with others before her and though I told them I wanted a softer and more natural look, I was always disappointed with the results. I then did a trial with Santina and she did exactly what I had envisioned! I had total confidence using her on my wedding day and was beyond thrilled with her work!"

  • "I was so lucky to have Santina do my make-up for my wedding, this woman is amazing. I had a trial with Santina beforehand and discussed different ideas. She was confident and creative, without being pushy and made sure I was comfortable with what we agreed. I knew I was in professional hands and felt really good about having her do my make-up on my big day. On the morning of my wedding I was really stressed (as most brides are!), and Santina was so kind and reassuring - it made such a big difference. My make up was striking but not too heavy, and my photographer commented on how well it lasted ALL day. I didn't need any touch-ups and it was a hot day, but my make-up stayed on perfectly and I was delighted with how she made me look. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Santina's amazing make-up skills for any occasion. She's also super super lovely."

  • "Santina is not only one of the world's most talented make-up artist, but she is also a pleasure to be around. Her energy is relaxing, reassuring and easy going. I was extremely comfortable with her as she fully changed my looks from regular to video shoot ready. Light handed she made me into the ideal glamour girl I wanted to capture on the camera. Amazing with lashes, gems, body glitters, I mean the most intricate work she executed with grace. I give her 5 stars for her make up art, her products, her vision, and her amazing personality."
    Janessa Rose
  • "Santina is an extremely talented makeup artist. I lost count of the amount of times that she has done my makeup. On my wedding day, I felt amazing. She spent so much time with me beforehand and on my wedding day to help ease any nervousness about how I was going to look. She has the instincts to know what you are looking for even if you can't articulate it. I have gone with some dramatic looks and then some more fresh and natural looks and loved them all. The best part is that I have always felt like I looked like me. I miss Santina and my biggest complaint is that she moved!"

  • "Santina did an amazing job doing my makeup for my wedding. She listened to everything that I wanted for my special day and went beyond my expectations. She even came to the church to touch up after the ceremony."
    Jennifer Capasso-Covotsos - 2Bride
  • "Santina did an amazing job on my makeup for the day of my wedding! I had tried two other makeup artist before I found Santina and I just wasn't satisfied with the results. I didn't even have to tell Santina the look I was going for she just somehow knew what would look best on me. And in my opinion that is what makes her the best!"
    Danielle Bruno Avellino - Bride
  • "Santina did my makeup for my wedding. I'm the person who doesn't wear a lot of makeup and was nervous. Santina made me look beautiful while still making me look natural and did exactly what I wanted. She made me feel like a star that day. She is so easy going and funny so that's a plus. Love, love her and definitely recommend her to make you feel special and beautiful."
