Christopher began his career in the beauty industry as a fashion model over fifteen years ago.He became very successful and found that he loved the industry. However, he also found that modeling did not provide the creative rewards he desired. He was also upset with the fact that as a bi-racial man (part black/part Italian), many professional makeup artists couldn't and didn't match up his skin color correctly.
One day, he decided to go to a cosmetics counter at Saks to purchase his own makeup for photo shoots. He began talking to the counter manager about his issues as a model. They talked for two hours, and at the end of the conversation, she offered him a job as a regional makeup artist for the company, stating, "I can just tell you'd be good at it!"
Christopher found his passion. Since then, he has become a huge proponent of creating looks for women that are real, unaffected, beautiful and glowing. His philosophy is one of simple glamour.
Easy beauty. Uncomplicated radiance. He believes in educating his clients on skincare, makeup color and techniques. After all, he can't always be there!
Originally from Flint, Michigan, Christopher was active in the theater during high school and college (University of Michigan). He received a BA in communications/broadcasting. From there, he pursued production work in television. The work was hard and tedious, the hours were long, and the pay was bad. He knew that this wasn't for him. But he did like the excitement of being a part of the process of a large production.
This is where his fascination with "behind the scenes" came about. By being an active part of production, he experienced all the complexities of producing a TV show/photo shoot: the dozens of people, the long hours and the meticulous attention to detail. These were things that the general audience never saw: the stress, the excitement, the hard work and the payoff.
Christopher invites you into his world: an exciting, fast-paced, beautiful place where anything can happen. A place where fashion, beauty, celebrity, perfection are de rigueur. A place where the flash and the camera are the eye of the world...
We will bring this world to you in a real, basic form. A way for every woman to experience what it feels like to be the center of attention. We will bring you a world of beauty that is accessible, rational and simple. Yet, at the same time, you will feel pampered, beautiful and one-of-a-kind. That's what Christopher Drummond is bringing you:
simple, natural luxury.
Christopher Drummond sent me three fabulous items to try! I am truly in love with each of these!
The first item I tried was the Finale Finishing Powder. I love the look and feel. I have problems with large pores and this powder covered it right up. I even liked the look with only the Finishing Powder and no concealer etc. It definitely helps out on those busy mornings when you're running late.
This skin-balancing, ultra-fine finishing powder nourishes your skin as it absorbs excess oil and helps your skin retain its moisture. You are left with a long-lasting, flawless finish. It's pure and natural formula is suitable for all skin types; from the driest to the oiliest complexions. Christopher designed Finale for everyday use, so that your skin can look flawless, naturally. Simply dust Finale over your Veludo Velvet foundation for a beautiful look that literally lasts all day. The smooth finish won't cake or set into fine lines. Finale can also be worn alone for a sheer, clean look.
Everyone loves to look sunkissed. Right or wrong, it defines beauty in America. With a light, natural looking bronzer, you can look sunkissed without having to bask in the sun's harsh rays. I'm a huge fan of bronzer, and an even bigger fan of Christopher Drummond's Bronzing Powder!
If you love the color the Brazilians have, mixed with a shimmery glow, this product is for you. This is the perfect combination of "bronze" and "glow" made exclusively by Christopher Drummond Beauty. A little goes a long way, and not only will you get the perfect Brazilian Bronze, but your skin will be luminized, all in one dusting of the brush! Add in all natural ingredients, and your skin will look beautiful all year long.
The last item I tried was the concealer. This concealer conceals better than any I've ever tried before! Literally, my every imperfection from a small blemish to large pores to a small scratch I got on my face, was easily covered. A little bit of this product goes a long way. It was so light and airy and made my skin feel ultra smooth.
Our Professional formula is velvety-smooth and disguises blemishes and under-eye circles. Our concealer camouflages imperfections to provide a more perfect 'canvas' for makeup application. Available in light, medium and dark shades. Formulated with Vitamin E, essential oils and other nutritious botanicals, it also provides protection against skin-damaging free radicals that are soothing and calming to your skin.
If you head on over to Christopher Drummond's website, you can try out the new Virtual Makeover. Now who wouldn't love to try out looks on yourself, or a model before you buy! I know I had fun with it!
