Calibella is an organic makeup boutique. Christina Cardenas, Makeup Artist/Owner, Calibella Organic Makeup Boutique, is a freelance makeup artist who she decided to do some research on organic foods and making healthy lifestyles changes. After doing some research, she began to think of her clients and what she was putting on their skin. It was an eye opening moment for her. It’s easy to think of how food affects your body, but when it comes to skincare and makeup, it’s easy to overlook, since it’s bought in a retail store, but there are no regulations. As she learned more about the ingredients, she became more aware of what products are good and bad, not only for herself, but also for her clients.
Calibella is a makeup boutique that caters to special events, including wedding parties and brides, so it was only fitting that Christina chose only the best, organic makeup products for those on their special days. The boutique not only uses the certified organic products on its clients, but also sells them. While she may only sell other’s products, Christina’s dream is to one day have an organic line of her own.
Christina actually met Lori online in which Lori scheduled an appointment when she was in town. Lori went into Calibella to learn more about Christina’s products and the products that were right for her. Through this connection, Lori was able to discuss her love of art and design, but also her love of giving back to the community. From there, a partnership was formed. Lori created the gorgeous banner that Christina has currently displayed on her website. Additionally, Lori and Christina are working to bring Lori Diamond Art shoes to the West Coast. Lori is working to create a line of Converse’s, which can be worn and/or given out at weddings parties and Quinceañeras. Lori can customize the shoes to the buyer’s desire.
Christina will be displaying some examples and more information about the shoes in her store. A portion of the sales will be given back to Christina, which will be given back to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. If you’re ever in Los Angeles, check out Calibella and in the meantime, check her out online.
