Christina Briles' 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 clinique beauty products and spraying perfumes." She happened upon the classic Kevyn Aucoin beauty bible “The Art of Makeup" at age 17. There began an obsession with makeup, hairstyling, and beauty that still lives on.
A rock star at heart since childhood, Christina always wanted to be in band. "Unfortunately I lacked the musical talent for that part." 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. Christina attended her first beauty show in 2008 and has been working in the industry since.
While becoming a licensed cosmetologist, Christina has trained with a variety of Hollywood's biggest names including Kevin Murphy's David Glover, who landed the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show; and celebrity makeup artist James Ryder. Christina has learned trade secrets from highly accredited companies such as MAC Cosmetics, Makeup Forever, Kevin Murphy, Sebastian & Aquage.
A versatile artist, Christina enjoys creating everything from the classic Austin “laid back” look all the way to the theatrics she learned from her time spent with highly accredited makeup artists.
While working with Keep Austin Gorgeous salon in 2011, Christina had the incredible opportunity to work with some of the top publications in Austin including Bliss Bridal Magazine, and Austin Monthly. 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.
When Christina isn't traveling all over Austin and Dallas for weddings, she enjoys dabbling in the arts of special effects makeup, spending time with her husband & kids, seeing bands play in downtown Austin, and perusing her favorite fashion & beauty blogs for new inspiration
