Christien Marie interview part 1

Congratulations to Christien Marie, Orlando makeup artist, for winning the Christmas tree inspired makeup challenge! With 59 points, Christien Marie was one of two submissions for that theme.

We have three interview questions for Christien Marie, so if she wins again, we can build on the interview with another set of questions.
Angeline: Christien, congratulations on winning the contest. How long did it take you to be inspired by the theme photo?
Christien: Not very long actually. I automatically associate holiday looks with sparkle and lights because that is my favorite thing about the holidays. I love looking at the light displays because of the different colors.
Angeline: When is the first time you can remember having an interest in becoming a makeup artist?
Christien: I remember really getting into makeup around middle school. This was the time I started trying to express myself. My grandma says that she has picture of me playing with a makeup set she bought me when I was much younger although I don't remember it. I just know that I've always been fascinated with makeup and how the littlest bit can go such a long way.
Angeline: As a columnist, I would like to put Orlando on the makeup map. What do you think you can do to contribute to that?
Christien: As a makeup artist, I consider natural beauty my area of strength. I like teaching people how to enhance their features. But there are so many sources of inspiration in Orlando, from the different places to the wonderful mix of people. I think it's important to show how eclectic and colorful Orlando really is and what better way than through beautiful makeup.
Angeline: Thank you, Christien. We look forward to seeing more of your works and your pushing the limits of makeup beyond boundaries.
