“WHILE TRENDS COME AND GO, THERE’S AN UNDENIABLE ELEGANCE WITH BEAUTY THAT REMAINS TIMELESS.”
FOR CLOSE TO A DECADE the name Christina Sikalias has been synonymous with makeup artistry and beauty, forging a career that’s taken her to all corners of the globe; working on some of the most coveted events and with high profile celebrities and brands.
However, her story begins many years earlier.
BORN IN MELBOURNE, Australia in 1992, Christina was innately drawn to the fashion and beauty worlds from a young age; following the trends she saw in magazines, film and high fashion runways with fascination and a feverish passion. An artist by nature, she fostered this passion and desire to express her creativity through teaching herself makeup artistry. She fell in love with the power of makeup to both provide a transformation and bring out the natural attributes of the face. Never satisfied with meeting the beauty industry’s prevailing standard, what set her apart, even in the infancy of her career, was her drive for perfectionism and thinking outside the box. Her talent was quickly noticed in the fashion and beauty realms, where demand for her artistry grew, seeing her work with high profile fashion brands, publications and identities.
AS SHE CONTINUED TO EVOLVE within a changing industry, Christina gained international recognition, as a member of the NYX Awards judging panel in 2016, working with New York Fashion Week in 2017 and for E-Entertainment in Los Angeles in 2018, and receiving a nomination for Beauty Influencer of the Year in 2020. Her clientele quickly expanded to include not only her regular clients, but A-List celebrities, supermodels and musicians, and attracted sponsorship and collaborations from cosmetic brands globally.
CHRISTINA’S DESIRE TO SHARE HER PASSION and drive for all things beauty lead her to teaching, as a way of sharing her story, her knowledge of the industry, and developing hands-on artistry skills for both aspiring and established makeup artists. Through offering personal anecdotes and tips from her own journey of hard work, perseverance and dedication, Christina seeks to empower those hoping to follow in her footsteps. Hosted annually from 2016, Christina now runs one of the largest, live Makeup Masterclasses in Australia with plans to take her classes global in the near future.
EVER THE ENTREPRENEUR, Christina has now parlayed her vision and desire for creation into the development of a signature cosmetics line. Having travelled the world in search of ingredients and formulations to meet her standards of quality, luxury and opulence, Christina’s line is set for release in the second half of 2021, exclusively through her website.
NOW, WITH HER NAME FIRMLY CEMENTED as a beauty revolutionary, beauty educator and social media personality, Christina has a cult following of beauty lovers, makeup artists and beautypreneurs. Christina’s artistry style continues to fuse refined, classic elegance with key beauty trends and a focus on highlighting natural beauty and features. Christina currently splits her time between her home in Melbourne and her most-frequented destinations of Los Angeles, New York and Milan.
