ABOUT DESPINA

I love to bring forward my Bride's best features and assist her in making her feel the most glamorous on their big day is a huge passion for me!

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, Washington I am 100% Greek! My upbringing I can say was just a tad bit similar to the movie ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ I did marry a “Xeno”  and my parents names are Constantinos & Maria… just a couple similarities from the movie! I love helping Brides achieve their Bridal Beauty dreams having been through the process myself, happily married eight years and counting! I do love travel, classic movies and my Mini Cooper Penelope!

I feel blessed to have a career in the Beauty Industry specializing in Bridal & Red Carpet Beauty for over a decade and hold a Diploma in Makeup Artistry from prestigious school, The Blanche MacDonald Centre located in the heart of Vancouver, B.C. Canada and I hold my Esthetics License from The Academy of Salon Professionals in Los Angeles, CA . I still continue to keep my education current by attending major industry events, workshops and seminars through The Powder Group, The Makeup Show, The International Congress of Esthetics & Spa to name a few.

I also have strong back round in product knowledge and client relations having been an Educator, Executive and Artist for various prestige cosmetic brands including Christian Dior, Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Yves Saint Laurent in luxury department stores and cosmetics boutiques while continuing to work in the industry in many different capacities including TV/Film, Print, Editorial, Runway, Celebrity, Private Clientele.

I thrive the most when working with Brides through their whole bridal beauty process. Helping you achieve your beauty goals through spa facial treatments that I customize for you to compliment the makeup and Hair design as a team create together. I love to bring forward my Bride’s best features and assist her in making her feel the most glamorous on their big day is a huge passion for me!

My team and I are Los Angeles based. The team I have built are people who are important in my life and I trust to give the same exceptional service I strive to always

Look forward to meeting you and bringing your bridal beauty vision to life!

Very Best,
