My name is Christine Hoàng and I am a makeup artist based in West Valley City, Utah.
I have been passionate about makeup for as long as I can remember. My mom tells stories of how I would use her lipstick and foundation and smear it all over my face, so from a young age the art of makeup intrigued me. I have done makeup for at least 6 years of my life, and have done it professionally since I was 18. At the age of 21, I am very blessed to have known what I wanted to be and how to get there. Yes, I am young, but it hasn’t stopped me from being the very best I can be. I don’t want to be good for just being a 21 year-old, I want to be the good despite being only 21. I am extremely passionate about making my clients feel confidently beautiful for any occasion. I believe in enhancing features rather than trying to change them.
I love what makeup can do for a person, it can instantly make someone feel so much more beautiful, but most important confident. As a makeup artist, my favorite moment is seeing that spark in their eye’s when they see themselves in the mirror for the first time and just feel amazing about themselves. Makeup artistry isn’t just a hobby of mine. It’s a passion and it’s something I eat, sleep, and breathe. I’m very fortunate to call my passion and hobby a career. Besides doing makeup for weddings and shoots, I work for Sephora as a Certified Makeup Artist and aspire to be Sephora’s next Utah Senior Artist. I have big hopes and dreams and one of them is to show how beautiful someone is, especially when they can’t see it themselves.
