20: Kristina-Monique Cortez, Make-Up Artistry Director, Poway Kristina-Monique Cortez is a Professional Make-Up Artist and the founding educator of Bellus Academys Make-Up Artistry Program. At an early age, she had a profound sense that make-up enhanced beauty and she was entranced by the make-up she saw in movies like Funny Girl. Coupled with a passion for art and painting, this lead to her highly successful career as a make-up artist and educator, where uncovering the beauty of others is something that gives her great joy and enables her to continuously grow. Throughout her career, Kristina-Monique has worked with industry giants such as MAC, MUD and Sebastians professional make-up line, Trucco. Other professional environments she has lent her talent to include independent films such as Southern Question and Just Desserts, promotional work for production companies such as Paramount Pictures, Columbia Pictures and FOX, Fashion Week in San Diego and Los Angeles, music videos for the likes of Brooklyn Haley, and a number of fashion labels such as Rock & Republic and Goga by Project Runway prodigy, Gordana Gehlhausen. Her work and expertise have also appeared in Allure, Salon International-Mexico, PurseBuzz.com and other high-profile editorial channels. Kristina-Monique joined Bellus Academy in 2006 as a Cosmetology educator but still held a true passion for the art of make-up. Wanting to remain a part of Bellus Academys progressive approach to education, she helped create the first-ever Make-Up Program in the San Diego area. For the past seven years, her role as Make-up Director has allowed her to motivate aspiring artists to embrace both the creative and business aspects of the make-up industry. She has inspired thousands of students under the philosophy that make-up artistry is the gateway to making others see themselves from a more attractive perspective. Like all Bellus Academy educators, she also still sees herself as a student of the beauty industry and constantly strives to find new ways to grow. For 2013, Kristina-Monique expects to see more color-blocking, incorporating the pantone hue emerald. She suggests that for eyes, a thin line will keep it subtle while a thicker, winged eyeliner in green will be more dramatic. | All photos by Jonathan Sevilla
