We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Carmina-Cristina here at the Milestone on the River! She helped us last year with a marketing photo shoot and did a wonderful job on makeup! I can’t wait for our 2013 wedding season to begin, so we have the opportunity to work with her again. I will continue to refer her to our clients any time!

Carmina-Cristina make up artist is my personal favorite. As an event planner I know many such artists and have several on my referral list but none that exemplify the perfect combination of talent, professionalism and compassion for each of her clients. Her skills can make the girl that usually never wears make up love herself with a new soft glow of beauty she never knew she had, to the diva where the more dramatic the better! It is my job to find the best talent in our area for my bridal clients and photo shoots or anyone working on a project that requires her level of proficiency. She is trained world wide and her skills go beyond the norm from models to movie sets. Carmina is a dear to work with and continues to advance her skills and knowledge of the industry and business. It is with great confidence and pleasure I recommend Carmina Cristina for any of your make up artist needs personally or professionally.

If you are looking for a makeup artist who will make you feel comfortable and special while making you look spectacular, Carmina is your girl. Her personality is very sweet and warm; she puts you at ease and really spends time talking to you about the look you want to achieve. She is also a true artist. I wanted an old Hollywood glamour look for my wedding. Not only did I get exactly the “screen siren” look I asked her for, but she tweaked the colors and details just enough that it really matched my personal taste and was not just a beautiful replica of something I’d seen somewhere. Carmina also did the makeup for my bridesmaids and mother. Everyone loved her personality and her work. Each woman done by Carmina looked flawless in our photos. She brought out everyone’s own unique beauty and was some of the best money that I invested in my event.

Carmina was a true pleasure to work with! She has such a bubbly personality and makes you feel so comfortable. If something about your look isn’t quite to your taste, she makes it right and makes sure you feel beautiful on your special day. I got so many compliments on my makeup. The best part was that it didn’t feel like I was even wearing any! I highly recommend the airbrush technique. My 4 bridesmaids and even the mothers had their make-up done with rave reviews. Definitely book Carmina!!

Carmina was an amazing makeup artist to work with. She was very flexible and the looks that she gave me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day were absolutely phenomenal. She was able to tailor each girl’s makeup to them and did this in a timely manner. She also offered herself to come to the church and touch up the makeup prior to the ceremony. Carmina is the perfect makeup artist and is very professional. I will hire her for more events to come and absolutely recommend her to my friends and family. Carmina went above and beyond for me, the bride, and made my day extra special. I feel privileged to have had her a part of my wedding day. Carmina is absolutely worth considering for your special event! 🙂

Carmina is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! If you are questioning whether to go with Carmina, I recommend her 110 percent. She is the sweetest person, extremely flexible, and does AWESOME make up work. She did my make up for my wedding on July 3, 2011 and I was so extremely happy with it. My summer wedding day was hot and humid, and I got the airbrushing and it lasted pretty much all day. She is a dream to work with and a true make up professional. DEFINITELY worth the money!!!! Love her! I can’t wait until the next big event that I attend so that I can get my make up done by her again 🙂 Wonderful.

While browsing my many wedding websites and videos of brides on their big day, I ran across a video of Carmina for a local PA bride. At first, it didn’t occur to me that I would need my makeup done by a professional and thought the salon would do a great job. I feel in love with Carmina’s work- she is beyond talented.

Carmina is nothing but amazing to work with. She is very skilled at what she does and knows how to make anyone look beautiful.

We started off with a trial which is the best thing to do for any bride because you want to make sure you look gorgeous on your wedding day and don’t want any surprises. Carmina walks you through the entire process of what she is doing and works with you to make sure you find a makeup palette that suits you and your level of how much makeup you like. The best thing she does for a bride is the airbrush foundation-it makes your skin look flawless.

I was thrilled with my makeup on the day of my wedding-not only did I look beautiful but I still looked like myself. My makeup stayed perfect throughout the night- even with a few small episodes of crying. My makeup-eyeliner and mascara- did not run.

If you want the best-Carmina is the girl. She is well worth the money and will make you look nothing less than beautiful on your wedding day.

Carmina did a wonderful job on my makeup. Starting with our first conversation, I knew that she was the makeup artist for me based on her experience and the focus she had on creating the perfect look for my day. At the trial, we not only worked on the “look”, but also on my skin regimen. For the following months I followed Carmina’s advice using gentle products made from natural ingredients and on my wedding day- it was worth it! My dry skin was gone and my skin looked healthy.

The day of my wedding was a bit hectic, but Carmina arrived on time and ready to go. She did a beautiful job on my makeup and throughout the process helped me to stay calm and relax.

I received many compliments and am so happy I chose Carmina to work with on my special day.

Leah, Stone Mill Inn, Hallam PA 06/12/2011

I have never been told I was stunning or beautiful. After Carmina did my make up on my wedding day, I heard it all day long. I am 64, my son told me I have not looked that good in 20 years…I think that was a compliment. Same goes for my 96 years young Mother. She looked great.

Carmina is worth every penny.

Nancy, Carlisle, PA 05/28/2011

Thank you so much for your hard work. You truly are amazing at your craft. Jaime looked BREATHTAKING. She just looked so darn beautiful! You made her feel comfortable and filled her with confidence. You transformed me in a way that made me feel years younger and helped create the sassy mom that I am. So thank you for that. I will highly recommend you to others. Thanks again!
PS. Taylor(young sister of the Bride) looked awesome too. Very age appropriate and allowed her to really feel part of the wedding party.
