About Jacinta Christos Makeup Artist
Born in Melbourne Australia, Jacinta trained as a classical ballet dancer for most of her life and worked as a professional in that field for three years as an Artist with the Australian Ballet.
During her career as a dancer and from a very young age, Jacinta always had a love for makeup artistry and never became tired of having to be perfectly groomed for every performance.
After her retirement from ballet Jacinta completed a Certificate IV in makeup at Make-up Effects Group (MEG) in Sydney. This professional intensive makeup course included training in sculpture, mould making, prosthetics, air brushing, body art as well as makeup for film, television, theatre, fashion, bridal and hair styling.
Blessed with a natural artistic ability Jacinta excelled in all areas of the course. She was fortunate enough to work with professionals at the top of their field whose knowledge and expertise was invaluable in that they encouraged her to push herself to the limits of her creativity allowing her to produce work far beyond her own expectations.
Upon completion of the course, Jacinta worked in the film industry for a short time before travelling overseas. She fell in love with the Amalfi Coast in Italy, one of the most beautiful places in the world and ended up living there for four years where she began doing wedding makeup for brides who travelled to the Amalfi Coast from all over the world. She is now based in Melbourne, Australia where she is continuing her work as a Melbourne makeup artist.
Jacinta has a sweet and caring nature with a calm, professional manner and great attention to detail. She believes that every woman is beautiful and that with the right makeup she can be the most beautiful version of herself giving her the power and confidence to take on just about anything!
“My sole purpose is to make every woman look and feel beautiful in her own skin by enhancing the pure essence of her beauty.”
Jacinta is excited to finally be able to share her love of makeup in her new Beauty Blog where she will talk about the latest trends, share tips and tricks, how-tos and much more.
