Boutique Review: Put your best face forward with Carmina Cristina

Share Article

The west shore is full of fun little shops to help you dress your best, but as the famous line goes, you’re never fully dressed without a smile — and Carmina-Cristina Vasilca can help you put your best face forward.

An experienced makeup artist, Carmina created her own cosmetics line that she carries at her boutique, Carmina Cristina Makeup Boutique in Camp Hill. The “Carmina-Cristina” brand features blushes, eyeliners, eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks and glosses, and mascaras — all developed by Carmina. The boutique also offers spa facials (which use Carmina-Cristina skincare products), professional makeup application services and workshops and classes, and carries body care products and gift sets for men and women. Carmina also provides makeup services for weddings, special events, and commercial work.

While it definitely can be tricky to gift cosmetics, Carmina can still help you “make up” the perfect gift for any holiday or occasion (I know my friends LOVE makeup!) Grab a gift card so they can stock their makeup bag or wind down with a relaxing spa facial.

Or, gift a VIP Club membership, which allows members to enjoy a monthly spa treatment or makeup application, or build credit towards free products. It’s the perfect gift for that tired new mom or superwoman wife in your life.

To get ready for the holiday next week (remember, Valentine’s Day is Thursday!), Carmina is hosting an in-store “Champagne and Lipstick” event this Sunday to share her favorite makeup tricks and inspire the perfect Valentine’s Day look.

Guests will receive complimentary pink champagne and go home with a signature Valentine lip color to wear for the big day. Free champagne and makeup? What could be better? Bring a friend and you’ll receive another special gift to take home.

Check out the event and grab your tickets soon…they’re only available until tomorrow! Carmina loves hosting these events, so be sure to like her Facebook Page for event updates and boutique news.

Carmina carries her full inventory in her boutique, but you can also shop her makeup and skincare online.

Currently, Carmina is available by appointment only. Interested guests can call or text to schedule a time to meet at the boutique (2209 Market Street in Camp Hill). Carmina is right down the street from the Neighbors & Smith development, home to my favorites Little Black Dress and Sweet 504.
