Camp Hill has long been home to many unique shops and businesses. This week, with the opening of the Carmina Cristina Makeup Boutique, that is no different.
“It is truly a one of a kind business for the area,” said owner Carmina Cristina, “We want ladies to come to a place where they can get a more intimate education about makeup and how to correctly apply it.”
While places like department stores and Sephora sell and recommend makeup products, Carmina is an internationally trained professional makeup artist who also recently launched her own signature makeup collection.
“It is a dream come true and much more,” Carmina said, “It is a chance to help women discover the beauty inside themselves in a more intimate setting.”
Carmina Cristina Makeup Boutique will offer:
- Professional makeup
- Luxury cosmetics
- Beauty workshops/seminars
On Wednesday, Camp Hill Mayor Mark Simpson joined Carmina for a ribbon cutting ceremony, which officially opened the doors of Carmina’s dream at 2209 Market Street.
Carmina said the boutique will offer individualized services for each guest based on her lifestyle and comfort with makeup.
The boutique houses two different areas where Carmina will hold personalized seminars to teach women how to properly apply cosmetics.
One area is smaller and is filled with natural light and would be perfect for a party of two to four, while the other section is a little larger and can fit up to 10 people for a session.
The larger room also has a wall of cosmetic products, including ones that Carmina has designed herself, that will be available for sale during normal business hours.
Carmina’s personal assistant, Stephanie Shirley, said that the boutique would serve both as a place of education but also as a marketplace for her custom cosmetics line.
The boutique will host a grand opening on Nov. 22. Normal business hours will run noon to 6 p.m.
Mark your calendar for grand opening week (closed Thanksgiving Day) when they will host a holiday sale, featuring 50 percent off of any one product from Carmina’s signature makeup and skin care line.
Carmina also will host an upcoming workshop at the Cornerstone Coffee House on Nov. 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. She will be showcasing fall and winter makeup trends and have a holiday looks preview.
Carmina Cristina Makeup boutique joins neighbor Meeka Fine Jewelry, which also opened this month at 2205 Market Street.
