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 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.

I can’t express how wonderful Christina was to work with! We did a makeup trial 6 months before the wedding and she was so warm and easy to talk to. She listened well to the look I wanted and followed through perfectly! I thought the trial was superb, but she was even better for the wedding. She was on time and so helpful. She even helped button my dress and stayed until after the reveal shot for a touch up. I highly recommend her. With her great talent, calm nature and affordable pricing, she is the total package!

I am extremely picky about makeup so I was nervous to have my makeup done. I was nervous for nothing! Christina did such a beautiful job on everyone's makeup! She made everyone feel comfortable (including the crazy bride!). I received endless compliments about my makeup.

Christina is the absolute best! She is the sweetest, most genuine person. She spent so much time making sure everyone felt their best on the day of my wedding. She went above and beyond in everything that she did and even stayed through our ceremony to touch up everyone after we all cried our eyes out! We all felt beautiful and confident after she did our makeup. Her service is flawless and her work is perfection. We are all talking about how we need to make more occasions to see her because we miss her already! I could not have asked for a more wonderful person to spend my wedding day with. Thank you, Christina, for being so fantastic!!

Christina is an absolute pleasure to work with. Planning my wedding was definitely stressful but when it came to working with Christina it could not have been any easier. I knew right away that I wanted to work with her. Not only does she do INCREDIBLE makeup but she is truly one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I loved the way my makeup looked on my wedding day and so did my mother and ALL of my bridesmaids. They were all so happy and she has such a calming aura about her that everyone was really enjoying themselves and there was no stress because she listens to what you want. Christina came recommended to me by one of my bridesmaids who had her makeup done by her in another wedding party and I could not be more thankful. I will continue to use her anytime I need to have my makeup done. Christina, thank you so much for all that you did to help make my day perfect and of course for making me feel beautiful! you are the best!

Christina is an amazing makeup artist. I used her for my wedding for me and my bridal party and her and her partner did an amazing job. They made the getting ready experience a ton of fun - it's clear they love what they do and take pride in it. And most important, we all loved our makeup. I wanted a simple look and Christina knew exactly what I wanted. And my makeup lasted all night! I would highly recommend her!

There are not enough positive things to say about Christina! I went into my wedding procrastinating booking a make-up artist as the last time I got my make-up professionally done I hated it. Two months before the wedding and I went in for my trial with Christina with other trials booked for later that week. After sitting with Christina for 10 minutes I knew instantly I would be canceling the other trials and booking with her. She is so sweet, friendly, fun to be around, and modest. In addition, she PHENOMENAL at what she does. I LOVED my make-up the day of the trial and LOVED it even more the day of the wedding. It lasted the whole day and even looked good well into the next day. She was sure to ask everyone in the bridal party what they liked and disliked in their make-up and was accommodating to everyone, playing up on their best facial features. Since after the wedding I am trying to come up with other ways I can use Christina's services in the future. LOVE LOVE LOVE her to pieces and you should not think twice when considering booking with her.

After wasting $100 on a trial with someone else, I was anxious to meet with Christina. I asked her to recommend a hair sylist, so she recommended someone she works with frequently, Randi Ross, which was great because Randi met me at Christina's studio. My hair and makeup trial was done at the same time..super convenient and its great seeing both hair and makeup at the same time. Christina has such a bubbly and friendly personality, it was so much fun working with her. She asked me a lot of questions on what type of look I wanted. My makeup looked flawless. On the day of my wedding, she came to my house at 5:30am and my airbrushed makeup lasted all day. Its amazing the difference a real professional makes.

Christina was amazing!! She was a joy to work with from my first trial up until the wedding day. She is professional, prompt, responsive, and such a sweetheart. She made me & my bridal party look & feel beautiful on my wedding day. Everyone loved her! I will definitely be seeing Christina again to do makeup for any special occasions! Highly recommend!!

Christina is such a delight to work with! She is a genuine person who is very passionate about her work. I was doing long-distance wedding planning and booked Christina based solely on reviews. I met her a few days prior to my wedding day for my makeup trial and I was very pleased with her work! I went with the airbrush makeup on my wedding day. It was definitely something I didn't regret paying extra for, considering my makeup stayed on the entire day without any touch ups required. Christina showed up bright and early on my wedding day with enthusiasm and a big smile on her face. She definitely worked well under pressure(since we were running behind schedule) and our makeup still looked beautiful and natural. Christina is a talented makeup artist and her work certainly shows it!

Christina Amador did my make-up for my wedding 9/14/2013, as well as my bridesmaids and my mother. I have to say she was and IS beyond amazing!!!!!! I don't think one hour went by without getting at least 5 compliments from guests. Plus my photos look AMAZINGGGGG!! Not only is she sooo sweet and personable and great personality, and gorgeous herself, but she is an actual artist.. and has an amazing talent for making you look absolutely gorgeous on your day! She is my permanent make up artist and im actually using her again to a wedding that im attending as a guest :-) Highly recommend!!!!!

Let me begin by saying that it was just as important to us that the vendors working with us on our wedding day had good energy, as it was that they were talented. Christina Amador fit that bill exactly! From the moment I met her at my initial makeup up trial I was struck by Christina's positive, happy energy. She is kind and compassionate and really listens to her clients. From our first trial to the big day, Christina was professional, responsive, and an absolute joy to work with.
On the morning of the wedding Christian showed up right on time with a big smile on her face. She fit in perfectly with my bridesmaids and really felt like part of the family. She took the time to listen to each girls' requests and used her talents to accentuate everyone's natural beauty. I never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day and I have Christina to thank for that. I opted for airbrush makeup which lasted the entire night, but my bridesmaids went with traditional and they also looked gorgeous through the last dance. If you are looking for an unbelievably talented makeup artist, who will add to the happiness of your special day and capture your natural beauty, then Christina is your girl. Thank you Christina for everything!

I cannot even begin to say how amazingly wonderful Christina is! She responded quickly to all my emails and was so pleasant from the day we first spoke, to the day of my trial and to the day of my wedding. She listened very carefully and made sure to envision the look I was going for. She offered her tips (which were perfect) and she did my makeup just the way I imagined. I have recommended Christina to several people since then and every single one came back and thanked me! I would absolutely continue recommending her without a doubt.

Christina is an excellent make up artist! She is extremely professional an affordable! My makeup lasted the entire length of my ceremony, reception, and even into the next morning. I received so many compliments on my make up. I highly recommend Christina to anybody who wants flawless make up that lasts!

Fate literally brought Christina into my wedding-planning world. Well, that or Groupon. :) I had been fruitlessly looking for a makeup artist for my August wedding and hadn't been thrilled with the people I had met thus far. A co-worker sent me a link to makeup trial Groupon deal and I bought it, thinking I would have an artist for my engagement shoot but never thinking beyond that.
And then I met Christina. Her joy and happiness literally fills a room. My mother and I fell in love with her from the moment we met her at that trial and I knew she had to be my makeup artist. It's not just that she's incredibly talented at what she does (even though she is!). She is one of those people you WANT around you on such a huge and important day. Her kindness, laughter, and amazing ability to put everyone at ease were such important assets for me to have on my wedding day.
Over the course of a year (and two separate makeup trials), Christina was always quick to respond and quick to problem-solve. It felt like I was speaking with a friend, not just one of my wedding vendors. On the big day, Christina was early to arrive at my NYC hotel and finished my makeup, as well as my four BM's and mother, exactly on schedule. Not to mention that everyone looked GORGEOUS. (She was also a godsend and let me know when I forgot my bouquet in the hotel room after we left for pictures!)
I cannot say enough great things about Christina. If you're hiring anyone else but her for your wedding, I question your sanity a bit. :)

Well...where do I start?!?! I had absolutely no idea where to go when it came to finding a makeup artist for my special day. I had my big sister put up a post on her FB page asking if anyone knew of a great makeup artist. We received many different recommendations but the first one I decided to reach out to was heaven sent! The search ended there! I saw Christina for a airbrush trial in her lovely home. So bubbly and happy that you left all your wedding planning drama at the door. The trial went wonderful. I was skeptical about airbrush feeling to thick or fake but it was the farthest thing from it. From that point she was booked. I even went back to her once more before my special day and did the traditional makeup for a Beyoncé concert I was going to that night. Once again... flawless! And then came the special day. We kept in contact plenty via text before hand so I had no worries. The day of she even got there before me. PUNCTUAL!!! Even with all my nerves and worries she was able to relax me as well as convince me to have my first Mimosa of the night! Even the bridal party loved her and for the time she was there she was one of us. You'd be a fool to go anywhere else. Love you lots Christina! You are sincerely heaven sent and have an amazing gift that can bring out the greatest feeling in a woman!
