My name is Maria Christina. I am a local SF Bay makeup artist and have been working in the tv/film/corporate and commercial industry in California for over 9 years (3 years in Los Angeles and 6 in the San Francisco Bay Area). I love bringing concepts to life and making talent feel confident, in character and pumped for set!
I have experience with all ethnicities, makeup styles and do light hair styling as well as Special Fx (Aging makeup, wound and character makeup, scars, false hair, light prosthetics etc).
San Francisco Bay Area has given me amazing opportunities to work with corporate and commercial projects in the Silicon Valley and visiting companies from Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.
I have had the honor to rock the makeup set with: National Geographic, Fox, Kron News, ABC Family, Tilt.com, Ooyala, Mercedes Benz, Fast Company, EA Games, Google, Verizon, Microsoft (Skype & Bing.com), Seattle Mariners, Great Clips, AOL, Honda, Anytime Fitness, Erickson Stock, Buro Noveau and BMW.
I am completely freelance and book my schedule with Production companies and independent photographers on a project to project basis. Please send me a little description of your project with date(s), location(s) and expectations and I can get back to you with my availability and rates as soon as I put down my makeup brush!
See you on Set!
Maria Christina Costa
