Christina Artrip




Christina is a Chicago-based makeup artist with over 10 years in the industry. She specializes in beauty makeup for weddings, TV, commercials, and print. Christina also works on creative projects for editorials, video, and theater, and creates customized makeup lessons for her clients.

Christina's art influence began through raw art and drawing which progressed through her studies in graphic design at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. She later moved to Chicago to follow her love for fashion design at the Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago, but her first position at a Mac counter changed her course!

Her makeup skill and experience grew through master classes, training, and travel. Her first photoshoots were on the beaches of Croatia, and in their private villas orchestrating wardrobe, and executing beautiful hair and makeup. After this experience 8 years ago Christina quickly fell in love with creating stories through makeup and hair. 

Christina currently works in television grooming our nation's most influential people, and some of the most inspiring women! Many of the women who sit in her chair exude inner strength and beauty, making these experiences much more than makeup! Christina also works with some of Chicago's top bridal agencies, and is the Chicago leader for the non-profit, Eve's Angels.
