We are A Toast to Beauty, or as our brides like to call us, AT2B.

It takes one quick internet search to find that bridal h&mu artists are a dime a dozen in our neck of the woods. Where A Toast to Beauty stands above the rest is in the value we provide to each and every client. Unlike most bridal hair and makeup companies, we train our team together, as one strong unit, creating exceptional quality and unparalleled consistency for each and every bride that comes our way.

Whether you are in the heart of San Diego or a future Southern California bride, our premiere A Toast to Beauty team will ensure you look and feel your absolute best when it matters most.

Carina 

Makeup Artist 

First of all, we hold the girl near and dear to our hearts because she was our VERY first hired AT2B makeup artist. We LOVE this girl. She is our little comedian of the group. You'll see!

 Carina has worked in the beauty industry for 10 years. She studied in Sacramento and Santa Barbara to become an ecologist in the tropics. She took a 180 degree career turn because she did not enjoy being in solitude, bug-covered and dirty! She moved up through the Nordstrom corporate ladder in apparel and then discovered her true passions: family, making people laugh and beauty! Carina worked for MAC for eight years. She had a dynamic and successful career at MAC but more importantly, her fellow artists became close friends and family.  It was her husband, three children and these bonds that inspired her to find a career that she loved and also enabled her to be a present and involved mom. 

Now, for two years she have solely worked as a personal and bridal makeup artist to extraordinary and amazing clients. She said "I am so blessed to have this cake and eat it too." She met Savanna by destiny and have been fortunate enough to be a part of theA Toast to Beauty team for over two years!

“I enjoy enhancing a woman’s sense of self, empowering her. Moreover, I truly love being a part of a bride’s most special and beautiful day. It is a miracle being able to connect with her in those most sacred moments before she says ‘I do,’ to the beginning of her happily ever after. “
