Christina Amador was the most nurturing and beautiful spirited makeup artist I have ever met. She is definitely talented but most of all her joy for the art of makeup comes across in her work as well. I had booked Christina for my bridal makeup trail. I am typically very hesitant and resistant to have any sort of makeup application because the end result is usually a very heavy and very unnatural look that is NOT me. I will be honest, I was nervous before Christina arrived but her bubbly personality and great sense of humor was so contagious that I had no recollection of nervousness. She asked me what my preferences were for makeup and I immediately said, "very natural, please don't make me look like a clown." I further stated to her that I prefer very soft shades of color. She then proceeded to ask me about adding lashes, I was at first resistant and then I gave in and said, "Christina, do whatever you want." I am glad I let go of all control and allowed the expert to perform her expertise on my face because when she was finished I was so happy, thrilled and AMAZED at the wonderful job she did. I had booked her on my birthday. We did my makeup early in the day and shortly afterwards I went to my favorite nail salon to get a fresh manicure. All the nail technicians complimented me over and over about the makeup and how natural and beautiful I looked. My fiance arrived later that day for my birthday celebration and here was the true test, as Christina said to me earlier in the day. He took one look at me and said, "Babe, you look so beautiful. Did you do something different?" I said, "no, I am just glowing today for some reason." You see, my fiance does NOT like makeup and for him the less the better so for him to see my face and feel like I had nothing on when in fact I did, then BINGO! Christina's talent passed the TRUE test. I love my Christina Amador! I feel so blessed to have found her and feel she is God sent. I look forward to my wedding day and having the confidence of knowing that I have Christina there to ensure I look natural, beautiful, radiant and glowing. Thank you, Christina Amador Beauty! xoxo ♥

She made myself, and my bridal party look amazingly beautiful on my wedding day!! I look forward to using her services in the future for all of my life's events, as well as keeping in touch with her on a friend level. I literally wish I had an extra bridesmaid dress on my wedding day!!! She is a must have for any bride wanting to look like and feel like royalty on their wedding day!!! Thanks so much Christina!!!!! Love you!!!!!

My wedding was on 1/20/13. Christina I cannot say enough about you. From you traveling to me for the bridal trial (which most other artist are not willing to do) to my beautiful wedding day you helped me to relax AND MADE ME FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE. Christina is a great listener and will give you the look you are looking for. I looked and felt so beautiful on my very special day. My bridesmaids looked gorgeous.
My husband was blown away when he first saw me. I have the photo's to prove it. If you are looking for a GREAT makeup artists look no further choose Christina. She is very professional and punctual. BRIDES TO BE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED SHE WILL MAKE YOU A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE.

Christina is both an extremely sweet person and a fabulous makeup artist. In addition to myself, she did the makeup for my mother and several of my bridesmaids (including my aunt who was my Matron of Honor) and they were all thrilled. She is very responsive and always makes time to get back to you quickly. She was a gem of a find and I have already recommended her to 3 people looking for a make-up artist the day of their wedding in the hopes that we get to work together again.

Christina did an amazing job for me on both my wedding day and my reception day. I went for a trial a few months before and told her exactly what I wanted and she accomplished the exact transformation I was hoping for. I went for a slightly dramatic natural look-I wanted people to see my makeup as part of my entire ensemble both days, and not just see my face first. Christina was amazing-and she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Definitely works with YOU to achieve the look you want and not the look she wants to give you like other make-up artists out there. She is my go to girl for big events and I have already and will continue to be sharing her information with people who are looking for a makeup artist. Where some artists charge an arm and a leg and the finished product is not always what is expected, I can say without a doubt that the value of the service is definitely worth the cost with Christina.

Just want to start off by saying that I am beyond lucky that Christina was part of my special day, and since my wedding, anyone that I know who is getting married I make sure to tell them to book Christina right away because she is honestly the best makeup artist out there! I had 2 trials with other makeup artists and their work did not even come close to Christina and her amazing ability to do makeup. She has such an amazing personality on top of her ability to make everyone look their best. When I had my other trials I felt that I didn't look like myself but as soon as I looked in the mirror after my trial with Christina I saw myself( just a more beautified version lol). I booked her right on the spot!! My whole bridal party and my mom, grandma and mother in law had Christina do their makeup and everyone kept raving how much they loved how they looked. The proof is in my pictures and in every shot our makeup looks flawless. Since my wedding I have referred her to a couple of friends who were getting married, and of course, they all booked her! Everyone in my bridal party said the first call after they get engaged will be to Christina to make sure she will be available to do their makeup for their wedding! I can go on and on all day raving about Christina, because she is not only amazing at what she does, she was my favorite vendor I booked and made the morning of my wedding fun and stress free, and of course, made my makeup beautiful for my special day.... What more can you ask for?!

To start, Christina is an amazing, sweet, kind hearted and funny person, who is a complete assest to have on your wedding day. Besides the fact that she does outstanding makeup, she was the best vendor to work with. All of my crazy questions, and thoughts were always answered immediately, with little laughter. All of my bridesmaids swooned over their makeup, even one stating she's never liked how her makeup was done before (even at her own wedding) but absolutely loved how she looked. My makeup was flawless the entire night, I hated to have to wash it off. Christina is an amazing makeup artist (and person), I would recommend her over and over again!

Christina did my makeup and that of my wedding party this past August and we all felt and looked like a supermodel version of ourselves. She is professional, personable and has a calming way about her that is exactly the kind of person you want on the most important day of your life. I promise you will not go wrong in hiring her. I plan on hiring her for future occasions. Every woman needs her as part of their glam squad arsenal.

When you're a bride it's so important to look amazing on that special day. Yes the the dress and hair are important but the most important is the makeup! Christina made that happen for me!! Her work is simply amazing. It was exactly what I wanted! Not only was I pleased with her work but she's a pleasure to deal with. She's so sweet and caring and goes out of her way to make sure her client is happy. I have also asked Christina to do my makeup for other occasions and I receive so many compliments about my makeup when it's done by her. Best makeup artist in my book!

If I could give this girl 15 stars I would!! She was the answer to all my prayers. I met her at another girls wedding and she was just someone I needed to have to be apart of my wedding immediately!!! She was so professional and wonderful all at the same time. She was on time and dependent and so accommodating with my schedule for my trial. She did my makeup spectacular for that and was able to create what my vision for my wedding look!! She was able to make a natural polished for my mom who never wears make up as well. Then comes the wedding day, with all the stresses that I had during all the planning and day of, she was able to make me forget all that and focus on the whole point of the wedding. She was able to replicate the look I fell in love with at the trial. All in all I would definitly book with Christina because at the end of the day I gained a friend not a business connection. Out of all my vendors she has been the one person that has kept in touch and cared about me as a person instead of another wedding!!! Love her and you will love her if not more! I can gurantee that

I originally found Christina on "The Knot". After reading the reviews I picked up my phone and quickly contacted her to set up a trial for my wedding on 9/21/14. She replied to my email within a few minutes and answered all my questions. I booked my trial in early morning in March, the same day I had a friends wedding so that way I can see how the makeup would last and if i would like it. As soon as she opened her door I felt like i was walking into my best friends house. She greeted me with a big smile and i kind of hated her because she is so naturally pretty(lol). Before I continue i want to say that I am extremely picky on the way I look with makeup because I am so used to simple makeup. When i looked at myself in the mirror i wanted to cry. I had nothing bad to say. I looked and felt gorgeous. The only other words I said to her was, ok where is the contract and were do i sign? My wedding day was the best day of my life because i truly felt like the most beautiful girl in the world. My confidents was threw the roof, and all because of Christina's most amazing talent. I only wish I was rich like JLO to hire her as part of my entourage so she can do my makeup everyday and feel like I did on my wedding day!!! I love Christina and thank her a million times!

On June 8, 2014, Christina Amador did my makeup (bride) as well as my 6 bridesmaids & we absolutely loved her!
At the trial, I expressed my concerns. I had been a bridesmaid many times and in general, have never really loved how my makeup looked but wanted so badly to look beautiful on my wedding day. Christina delivered 1000%. I have never felt so beautiful and received more compliments on my makeup. It was natural but special at the same time! She is a master in her trade and would recommend any bride to use her for their big day!
Besides amazing makeup application, she also has a vibrant personality. She is relaxing yet so cheery & optimistic, I was truly soooo excited for my wedding day!
It was a perfect experience and I was happier than I've ever been! Christina comes highly recommended from myself and my friends!!!!

I really love Christina. I met her first when she did the make-up for a friends wedding that I was a bridesmaid in and she was great. She's just really fun and super sweet. I knew right away that I'd hire her also. She did a great job again. She's good at determining what's going to be best for each person and executing it.

Christina did the make-up for myself and 5 bridesmaids for my wedding last month. About Christina herself, she is just lovely. Super nice and fun, its honestly a treat to hang out with her. She air-brushed me and did traditional make-up on my 5 girls. Each has very different skin tones and hair colors and she customized her palette and made them all look AMAZING. My airbrush was flawless until the wee hours of the night (well actually 6am when we finally left the bar!) and the girls stayed on as well. She was very responsive to emails and texts and even helped organize an assistant when I decided to get my mom and mother in law and a couple other relatives make-up done at the last minute. Two of my girls were very delayed at the hair salon so we were running late but Christina made up the time with no problem and no stress whatsoever.
I'm sitting here trying to think of an excuse to get my make-up done again just so I can hang out with her. Plus I looked awesome!

Christina did the makeup for myself, bridesmaids and moms for my wedding on 9/12/14!! She is an amazing person, so talented, with a great personality! She does wonderful work, and we all looked stunning. I came out so photogenic due to christina's makeup! I highly recommend her and will use her for the future! Thanks christina! !

Christina is AMAZING! If you are considering using her or doing a trial, just do it!! You will fall in love with her and not regret it. First things first, the make up she does is flawless. I am very into my make-up, so I am VERY particular. I did a few trials with other people before I met with her, and she got it perfect right away! And the day of, my make up was absolutely amazing. One of my bridesmaids is a make-up artist, and she was super impressed by Christina's work. Now, beyond that, you will absolutely fall in love with Christina. She is so bubbly and enthusiastic, and she just radiates that to everyone. Having her in the bridal suite the day of the wedding felt like another girlfriend in the room hanging out. Also, she responded to every email I sent her within a couple of hours, fully answering any and all questions. She even put light make up on my junior bridesmaids at no cost. Another one of my bridesmaids is engaged and getting married next year, and told me immediately after having her make up done that she was 100% going to use Christina for her own wedding. Trust me, you can NOT go wrong with her.

Christina was my make-up artist for my engagement shoot and wedding. I got married in NJ and used mostly local vendors except for Christina. The one thing a bride does not want to worry about on her wedding day is how she looks so I looked at several MUAs and when I saw Christina's work I knew I wanted to book her for my wedding. Besides being extremely talented, she's professional, responsive and has a great personality. I truly liked having her around the morning of my wedding. She's very personable and I didn't have a bridal party so it was nice to have someone to chat and laugh with. If you're a nervous bride she'll definitely take your minds off things and help put you at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend her to other brides.
