Makeup Training Workshops

Every day, millions of women of various cultures, ages and lifestyles apply makeup. But how many of these women have received training to know what techniques and products will maximize their natural beauty? As an internationally trained professional makeup artist and licensed esthetician, Carmina Cristina provides much more than makeup application; it is her passion to inspire and educate the beauty artist in you.  Carmina-Cristina’s series of makeup training workshops and seminars are designed to educate and inspire women of all ages on facial beauty fundamentals including symmetry, proportions, color harmony, skin care, makeup artistry products and essential techniques. Carmina’s presentations are applicable to all age groups ranging from teenagers to middle age to late years. No matter how diverse her audience, she addresses the particular beauty makeup needs for each group member such as skin characteristics and appropriate use of colors and contouring.

“My goal is to make modern makeup accessible to every woman. Whether you like a natural or totally intense look, I will teach you how to enhance your best features, feel confident in your appearance and achieve flawless makeup for any occasion.”

Carmina’s makeup classes and workshops are typically scheduled once a week and take place at the Carmina Cristina Studio located in Harrisburg, PA. The workshops are designed to be fun, educational and highly interactive. The setting is intimate and relaxed, with a limited number of participants in attendance in order for everyone to get personalized attention. Each participant receives an individual facial beauty assessment and will practice makeup techniques under the direct supervision of Carmina. Workshops include the use of tools and technology such as digital photo cameras, video cameras and projectors to magnify facial images so each participant can comfortably see the finest details of her demonstration makeup application.
