Meet Your Makeup Maestra: Christine Colucci

Hello future amazing artist! I'm Christine Colucci and my journey started with cosmetology school at the tender age of 15 in Long Beach, California. After receiving my cosmetology license, I went to Joe Blasco Institute.

For 30+ years, I've lived my passion by creating beautiful looks for my clients all over the world. When I first started out, I wasted a lot of time and money trying to figure out things like the right products to put in my kit, how to invoice clients, etc.

I currently run a successful bridal hair & makeup business (Makeup Mafia Weddings) and have been a freelance hair and makeup artist for decades. Now I'm ready to pay it forward by passing my knowledge and skills on to the next generation of artists. Let me guide the way!!!
