Christina Guerra’s love of beauty and flair for the artistic showed itself at an early age. “I used to sneak into my mother’s makeup drawer and sit in the bathroom for hours applying her Estee Lauder lipsticks – my favorite was “Rich Red”, she recounts. Always a bookworm, she happened upon the classic Kevyn Aucoin beauty bible “The Art of Makeup” and begged her parents to purchase it for her at the age of 11. There began an obsession with makeup, hairstyling and beauty that still lives on.
A rock-n-roller since childhood, Christina always wanted to be in a band. “Unfortunately, I lacked the musical talent part,” she laughs. But the one talent that stood out from the beginning was her gift for makeup artistry. This ability was noticed even back in high school, where friends & neighbors lined up to have her do their makeup & hair before a night out. After a long stint working in the music industry, Christina attended the Makeup Designory in 2007 and has been working ever since.
A versatile artist, Christina is highly skilled in working with both men and women. Her work with men has earned her a spot at the top of Hollywood's most in-demand men's groomers. No one-trick pony, Christina can also turn out a Guy Bourdin-inspired glam or California beachy look in addition to keeping her gentlemen clients looking sharp and dapper.
Her friendly & easygoing demeanor paired with her passionate work ethic has made her a favorite on set and keeps her in high demand amongst clients.
