Makeup by Kristina Vancea
My love for makeup started about 2 years ago when I was about to get married. I knew NOTHING about it! I wanted to be able to do my own makeup for my wedding so I started watching YouTube videos to really just get a clue about what I was suppose to do. I started buying more makeup, because honestly, I only owned mascara, a few eyeshadows and some bronzers. Makeup, then, became a full on obsession after I started to get the hang of what I was doing. As my obsession grew, I decided I wanted to start my own YouTube channel. After a few months, I started to build up my portfolio of looks I did of friends and myself and realized that this was my true passion! I am currently enrolled at QC Makeup Academy to get a certificate as a Master International Makeup Professional and love every client that has come my way. I get more excited every day to be able to do what I love and I hope that I am able to make other women feel as beautiful and confident as they should every single day.

I hired Kristina to be my make-up artist for my wedding, which took place on October 25, 2014. I don't know too much about make-up, and I talked with her about that prior to any trials. And before we even met for a consultation or trial, she would send me pictures, information, and asked tons of questions, sent me photos of different looks, and asked me to send her anything that I liked, just so she could get to know my style, my dreams, and what I truly wanted from make-up at my wedding. During my trials, she didn't just apply make-up, and ask how I liked it at the end---she took time with me... During each step, she would talk with me and explain how and why she was doing it, and what products she was using. She taught me basic knowledge that I've taken with me for my everyday make-up routine as well. My wedding day was incredible. I have never felt more beautiful and I owe so much of that to Kristina. She stayed with me, even after the ceremony, to fix me up for pictures, and also during pictures to make sure everything was perfect (I was sweating a little during outside shots.) I couldn't have asked for a better make-up artist. She was professional, yet fun, and I learned so much. My pictures turned out absolutely fabulous and I am so, so incredibly happy with everything she did for me!
Since I started wearing make-up, I've only used eyeliner and mascara because I always thought anything else looked terrible on me. Kristina opened my horizons and showed me the correct ways to apply and colors to use. I don't and wouldn't trust anyone else to do my make-up from now on. She's amazing!!!
Kristina was so sweet and genuine. I hired her to do my makeup for an event I had in Atlanta, GA. As she was applying my makeup, I told her I wasn't very good at doing my own, and she taught me how to do what she was doing every step of the way as well as why she does what she does. She did exactly what I asked her to do and more. She enhanced my features and made me feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin! I would recommend her to everyone!
