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 ♥

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 was absolutely amazing!!! I had Christina do my make up for my engagement shoot in the spring and immediately booked her for my wedding when I saw how beautiful she made me look. She is extremely talented professional and a total sweetheart. I got married at St. Patricks Cathedral on 5th Avenue and she had no issues commuting to my hotel to do make up for my wedding party and myself. Christina was on time and made us all look fabulous. Everyone at the wedding complimented my make up and how pretty I looked even strangers on the street as I walked out of the cathedral. I felt like the most beautiful bride ever. She helped make my day super special and stress free. My make up was flawless and lasted all day. I highly recommend her and would definitely use her services for other special occasions.

Christina was beyond fabulous. Not only was she sweet and bubbly, easing all wedding day jitters, but she was so flexible, fitting in bridesmaids (and family members) who decided to have their makeup done last minute. Everyone looked gorgeous, and it is with great thanks to Christina! I am so grateful that I found her, and would HIGHLY recommend her!

Christina Amador is amazing! Not only is she the sweetest person ever, she's an amazing talent! We played with a lot of ideas during my make-up trial and then when it came time for the big day and I had changed my mind completely, Christina had no problem switching gears and I can honestly say that I've never looked better. She did a phenomenal job on my sister and Mom as well. They both looked beautiful. If I ever have a super fancy night out or event to go to, I'm calling Christina!

The first time I met Christina was in April 2012. I was looking for a make-up artist to do my make up for my engagement photo shoot, and potentially my wedding. It so happened, Christina had a Groupon special going on and, at the suggestion of one of my BMs, I purchased it. One of the best decisions I made.
Not only was I extremely happy with the make-up, I was very impressed with Christina. She has such a bubbly personality and made me feel at ease. I never really wear make-up and I had a fear of looking "too made up" but Christina worked with me and, after listening to her ideas, I trusted her to make me look great. After seeing my engagement shots and getting to know Christina, I had no hesitation in hiring her for my wedding.
Wedding Day - 11/16/2012 - I had an early start time at 8 am. Christina was not only on time, she arrived at my hotel at 7:30 am and she had a great attitude which helped to get me going and ready for the day. All of my bridesmaids LOVED her and all of their make up looked so beautiful. My make up looked beautiful too! Most importantly, Christina kept on schedule!
I would recommend Christina without reservation. Not only is she an excellent make-up artist, she's a very warmhearted and sweet person! Any bride would be lucky to have her as their make-up artist.

I absolutely love Christina! She does an amazing job and makes you feel so beautiful!! She's done my makeup several times and each time I'm sad to even wash my face. Yes, you look that good after Christina does your makeup! Not only is she a talented makeup artist, but she's so sweet, and gets back to you right away when you contact her with any questions. Brides, if you want to feel like a million dollars on your wedding day, then you need to call Christina!

There aren't enough amazing things I can say about my new favorite makeup artist Christina Amador. From the start she was caring, and warm, it was in her demeanor where I knew I had made the right decision in contacting her for my wedding day. She accommodated my hectic schedule, had time to meet and have a preliminary makeup trial with all of my bridesmaids, and myself months before my wedding. I had a destination wedding, and where I know it is hard for a makeup artist to clear a weekend for just one bride, she made it happen without hesitation. Throughout the three day affair, she was prompt and at my side to touch me and the girls up when needed. Her friendly personality, and genuine love for her amazing talent made my day even more special. Since our wedding, I have had Christina do my makeup for many other events, and have recommended her to everyone I can! I am a huge fan of the airbrushed makeup (it seriously doesn't move until you want it to) and she is amazing at it. Thank you Christina for always being so gracious, and friendly, it makes a huge difference when there are many other makeup artists out there who aren't. She will always have my business!

There are two reasons why anyone looking for a makeup artist should contact Christina. Professionalism and Artistry. First of all she is extremely down to earth and I would consider her a friend after my experience with her. She doesn't intimidate you with overbearing opinions and she makes you feel completely at ease. Those are very important qualities and very essential for all brides to have on the biggest day of your life. Secondly, she will take your ideas and basically craft your face into the most beautiful version of yourself. She will advise you with the colors that she thinks will work best, but never force anything upon you.
Here's another sign that she is the best. My bridesmaids (and I) are loud, opinionated girls from Brooklyn. Not one of them felt unsure about how they looked. Every single girl looked stunning and no one had anything but praise for the job she did.

Christina is absolutely amazing!!!! My wedding was the week of Hurricane Sandy and even with the limited transportation she made it to the hotel for my makeup and showed up early! They canceled my reception the day before my wedding and we were lucky enough to continue it at a hall willing to plan a wedding in a day. Christina promised me she will show up no matter what and she definitely did! While I was a worry mess, Christina kept me and my bridal party calm and reassured everyone it would all work out, all while making everyone absolutely beautiful! I received compliments all day and all night long on my makeup. I couldn't have been happier with her services and I would recommend her to anyone! I never felt or looked so beautiful. THANKS CHRISTINA! XOXOX

If you are looking to look and feel amazing the day of your wedding, look no further than Christina Amador! The entire process of finding a make-up artist was incredibly overwhelming to me; I am from Brooklyn, but wanted to find someone based in Long Island to make it easier the day of wedding, as I was getting married in Long Island. After speaking to a few other make-up artists, who did not make me feel comfortable at all, I came across Christina's reviews. Seeing so many 5 star reviews made me curious- can she really be so great? Well, from our first phone call, I knew that she was. She put me at ease, and I looked forward to having a trial with her to see if her makeup skills matched her amazing personality. The day of my trial, Christina and I discussed colors of the wedding, what colors would work with me, and explained different application styles. She took the time to personalize everything to me, instead of just slapping on whatever she thought would work. When she was done, I was amazed at how beautiful her work was. The day of my wedding, she showed up bright and early (at 6:30 a.m.!!) with a huge smile on her face. She did makeup for me, my mom, and one of my bridesmaids, and we all looked amazing! The makeup stayed on all day and night, just as perfectly as it was when she finished- all I had to touch up was my lipstick! She even contacted me after the wedding to see how everything went, to make sure that I was happy with everything (not just the makeup, but everything!) I would recommend Christina in a heartbeat to anyone who needed makeup done in a HEARTBEAT. Not only is her work amazing, but her personality is as well. She takes the time to listen to what you want, gives honest advice, and works with you to create the perfect look for you. She doesn't treat you as a client- she treats you as a close friend. And who wouldn't want a friend doing their makeup on their wedding day?

Christina brought such positive energy to my wedding day and was calm, cool and collective throughout the whole event. She did an excellent job and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I trust Christina completely and feel that she represented me very well for my event. She is really organized and her makeup and brushes are very clean. She has a wide selection of colors and techniques that she uses. Christina is very knowledgeable in the beauty & health industry and her years of experience are evident. She is such a lovely person and I was so glad to have her there to make my day extra special! I would highly recommend her to other brides and feel she is extremely talented – it was an honor to have her do my makeup.

Christina Amador did my bridal makeup (airbrush) and my maid of honor's makeup (traditional). Christina is so talented, so professional, so friendly, and just so fun- I wish I could have my make up done by her every weekend!!:) Christina did both my and my maid-of-honor's make up and we both felt great all day, all night!! So many compliments and just so relaxed and lots of fun getting ready made my wedding day just perfect from start to finish. I truly feel lucky that Christina was available for me on my big day and highly recommend her to everyone!!

Christina is amazing! We hit it off as soon as we spoke on the phone. She is energetic, sweet, reassuring, and super talented. My make-up was pristine. I looked amazing. When we did my trial run, she really took an interest in getting to know me and took her time to get a sense of my style and took into account my wedding colors to get a better understading of what make up hue to go with. I did not come to her with specific make up ideas as I'm not really a make up person. But she delivered beyond what I could imagine and it was PERFECT. I want to thank her for helping keep my nerves under control. My make up was the first thing I did the day of my wedding and because she did everything so timely, it set the day off to a great start as I was on time for everything that day. I so grateful to her!
I thoroughly recommend Christina to anyone!

I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND Christina for your wedding make-up!! I was married on October 14, 2012 and she did my make-up, my mother, MOH, and 3 bridesmaids. She was super easy to contact and to communicate with. She listened to what each of us wanted and made everyone look gorgeous. The airbrushing lasted through all the photos and all the dancing. Her personality was also so beautiful and so much fun! She was a complete joy to have around the morning of the wedding. She is a MUST for your wedding day!!!

Christina was an absolute joy to work with!! Not only is she beyond talented, she is sweet as can be, very sensitive to a bride's needs, and all around wonderful!! She transformed me into a picture perfect bride and I could not be more grateful!!
She even managed to make my picky mother "who wears no make up" smile all day!! (bless her!)
Highly HIGHLY recommend her!! I would call on her in a heartbeat to have my make up done again!

It's hard to put into words how beautiful, amazing and special Christina Amador is and the role she played at my wedding. I did 2 trials with Christina and had her ALL day on my wedding day from 8:30AM-12:00AM. She did my bridesmaids makeup and my mom's makeup as well as mine. I wanted to wear red lipstick and to be picture perfect all day. Although the airbrush stayed on perfect, (even into the next day) I felt like a celebrity having Christina touch me up all through the day. Everyone commented on what a beautiful bridal party I had and how beautiful I looked. I know every bride is told they are beautiful, but the truth is, every bride is not beautiful. I glowed, radiated and emanated joy and happiness on my wedding day. Because of Christina, I looked fantastic in all my pictures. If you are on a tight budget, like we were, you may look at Christina's prices and tell yourself you could just do your own makeup or have a friend do it. You will probably majorly regret that decision. She is worth every penny. In fact, I believe she could easily charge 10x what she charges and strictly do celebs. I'm beyond grateful to have discovered Christina Amador. She has such a fun, cheerful, likable. friendly, genuine attitude and personality. She is also very punctual, a fast communicator and professional. She'll make sure you like how you look, and if you don't, she will change it until you are happy. She'll make you happy and beautiful no matter what. It's clear that she does what she loves and brings that + energy. As a fellow entrepreneur and business person, I am often appalled at how poorly I am treated as a customer. Unless you have self-esteem issues and are never happy with the way you look or are some crazy, ridiculous bridezilla, you are guaranteed to love your makeup and feel and look gorgeous on your wedding day. Her work speaks for itself. You can read tons of reviews and see plenty of before and after pictures of brides and brides to be on Christina Amador Beauty's FaceBook Page.
