Biography

After high school, Kristina Pavlović studied at University of Applied Health in Zagreb and obtained a BA in Physiotherapy in 2003. While her education gave her a solid foundation on which to build her future work and approach to it, Kristina was not able to express herself fully through physiotherapy and decided to pursuit more artful expressions through colours and aesthetics.

After finishing a make up course at Callighari school in Zagreb (2004), Kristina moved to Paris, France, and enrolled into a private make up school J.P. Fleurimon in 2005. During her one year intensive course, she participated in a number of out-of-school activities, as well as in various unpaid projects (CLCF Academy of Short Film, Top of the Pops, Tony&Guy Hair Show).

After her return to Croatia, in 2008, Kristina gained employment in a renown make-up company- Chanel-where she held a full- time position of a Make- up Artist and Beauty Advisor. Her following job was at Illamasque, where, as a professional make-up artist, she held a similar position. While she was in full- time employment, Kristina cooperated with the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb on various films and projects.

After becoming a freelance make- up artist, Kristina dedicated herself fully to working on her own portfolio in order to present quality and creativity of her work to agencies and magazines. Soon enough, she got recognised by a number of production companies ( Division Productions, Pakt Media) , magazines, agencies, schools (such as a MakeUp Artist Centre in Slovenia where she was invited to teach as an outside lecturer) and photographers ( Decker+Kutić, Franjo Matković, Jelena Balić, Marko Grubišić, Ekaterina Belinskaya…). While she freelanced in many facets of make-up; film, TV, music videos, fashion make-up; she found her true passion: fashion in all it's aspects- fashion shows, photography, lookbooks, fashion magazines.

Kristina has been part of the most important fashion events in Croatia for a number of years: Croa-A-Porter and fashion.hr; for which she worked on a campaign Perwoll fashion.hr 2014. During these events she had met fashion designers with whom she has cooperated on a number of occasions: Boris Pavlin, LINK, Pavla Aleksić, Sonja Lamut, Mammi Jewellery. Her artistic thinking is not limited to make up alone, her scope of work included scenography and hair styling in a number of fashion shoots. This can be seen in a perfume campaign by Croatian designer duo ELFS (“Love ELFS”, 2014) where she acted as a hair-stylist as well as a make- up artist.

So far, her work has been published in a number of Croatian magazines: "Storybook", "Grazia", "DIVA style", "DIVA Magazine", as well as worldwide web-to-print publications of “ Fashion World” "Esquire Ukraine", "Evo Magazine", "Svelto Magazine (USA)", "Papercut Magazine" and "Factice Magazine".
