Chris did my makeup (along with seven others) for a wedding this past weekend. He worked on girls between ages 14 to +60, all with amazing results. Everyone had elegant and age appropriate makeup tailored to their preference and comfort level. Chris and Armando were both timely, professional, and so much fun to work with. They went beyond their call of duty and tried to help us in every way they can to make the wedding a beautiful success. If I'm back in the area and need my hair and makeup done again, i will absolutely be hitting them up. Can't recommend them enough! xoxo

Christopher and his team are absolutely wonderful! Christopher did my make-up and hair for my wedding. He and his team also did my bridesmaids and my mom's hair and make-up. So many picky people, so many skin tones and hair types. He handled it all like the pro he is! Everyone looked beautiful. Christopher is also a talented stylist for regular appointments. I have very long, thick hair and he did gorgeous highlights and a great job thinning my hair of all the excess bulk without cutting the length. He followed up with me every step of the way. The best part was the false eyelashes he applied for my wedding stayed on for several days after, through an international flight to Thailand and two days of scuba diving. It made the pictures look amazing. I cannot recommend him enough. Weddings can get hectic and stressful with so many details. I can honestly say Christopher made everything so much more peaceful and added so much value and positivity to a very special day!
"I was lucky to have the privilege of working with Christopher for my wedding at Willow Heights Mansion. I had done a few other "trails" before finding Christopher. The problem I was encountering was that a lot of wedding makeup artists caked on the makeup and it simply just did not look all that great. Seeing as how makeup can break or make wedding pictures I was on a mission to find the right makeup artist for the job!
It was just two months before my wedding when I had a trail run with Christopher. I was a bit nervous that I would not find the right person to do my makeup and that I was going to have to settle! Christopher was knowledgeable, listened to what my vision was, and extremely easy to work with. Right after my trail I immediately booked him for my wedding.
On the morning of our wedding Christopher did my Mom's makeup, my four Bridesmaids, and myself. He worked efficiently and knew exactly what everyone needed in order to look their best. All of our makeup looked immaculate the entire day and night. Our pictures turned out amazing and truly reflect the great work that Christopher did. His infections personality and professionalism were greatly appreciated throughout this whole process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for the perfect makeup artist for their big day!"
Born and raised in San Jose, Christopher started his career in the beauty industry as a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics in 2004. At the time, it had not occurred to him that this was the beginning of an endless and exciting journey.
Christopher decided it was time to take his career and abilities to the next level and enrolled in cosmetology school.
That day a seed was planted and continues to grow today. He currently is spreading his God given talent with hopes to make a change in the community.
His vision is to have a team of artists across the nation and possibly around the world. Here to create a fun and relaxed environment as you are polished, prepped and shined for your special event. Meanwhile helping others by creating an opportunity to grow in the beauty industry.

"When my original make-up artist wasn't available for my wedding day, I worried that I wouldn't find someone who could pull of the natural but elegant look I wanted. Then I found Christopher, who was amazing! I'm not big on make-up and was so impressed with Christopher giving me a beautiful balance of glamour and "wow" while honoring my request to "look natural" His work had me smiling like a super-model; he truly is an artist (and all my bridesmaids would agree!). I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a gorgeous face - he's wonderful!!!
