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.
