GET TO KNOW KRYSTINA:

Krystina encompasses what a makeup artist is and represents. Krystina trained as a makeup artist at the tender age of 17 years old, straight out of small-town New Zealand to the big smoke of Auckland, NZ. Determination, passion and her creative love of makeup artistry, saw her work her way up from assistant work, to working in some of NZ biggest broadcasting stations, magazines, fashion weeks, to Weddings, special occasions and events. 

Having reached the 7-year itch in the industry and want to explore the world, Krystina set off to London in 2011 to 2013. With TV experience on her side she picked up work at CNN, CNBC, small production companies and the 2011 London Olympics for two French TV Broadcasting Stations, a  major highlight of Krystina's career. 

London sparked Krystina's interests in working with Female Entrepreneurs and corporates in highly respected positions and worked with some incredible ladies and companies such as Veuve Cliquot, Moet Hennessy and the MD for Facebook to name a few.

With only two years on her Visa, Krystina had more to achieve so set off to Hong Kong where she currently resides, clocking up six years so far. Krystina's brand "KTK" sees her glamming up an array of faces for her client's glitzy events, brand photoshoots, to conducting 1:1 lessons and group lessons (also in Singapore), as well as fulfilling a bride's makeup wishes on her wedding day.

Krystina has produced her very own luxury animal cruelty-free Makeup Brush line, expanding her business and providing a product to compliment her services, which is proving to be a hit with a large growing list of clients worldwide. 

 

Krystina believes in the importance of giving back through supporting several charities in HK and NZ and mentoring/teaching local refugees.
