Christina Vega, the Brooklyn native, stumbled upon the beauty industry after a deep love for color and creation in the arts. After switching her paint brushes for makeup brushes, Vega graduated from The Lia Schorr Institute in 2008 to obtain her beautician license. Vega started at Sephora in 2010 as a makeup artist and moved quickly up the ranks to become the face of the Personal Beauty Advisor campaign. She soon began to teach beauty classes at Sephora stores in order to educate everyday women on their makeup and skincare routine. Vega later became a Senior Artist for Sephora Soho where she trained and developed her team’s artistry as well as film for Sephora’s YouTube channel in Los Angeles, California. Taking her passion of education to the next level, Vega is now teaching inspiring makeup artists at Chic Studios - School of Makeup in New York City.
Christina provides private lessons, makeup and light hair styling services. She also uses her artistic talent to help raise awareness and to change lives. Christina Vega has done countless makeovers to raise money for charitable organizations such as American Cancer Society, Relay for Life, and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Without realizing she would end up in the beauty industry, Vega is thrilled to have found her calling by doing what she loves. She believes in the merge of inner and outer beauty to create a secure, yet delicate outlet for men and women to use makeup recreationally.
Christina is currently based in New York City.
