About me:


      My name is Karisa Tondo-Kramer Sava and I am a Make-Up Artist with experience in all aspects of the industry! I have been in the makeup business since 2011 - and it has been an unbelievable journey! I feel so blessed to have a career in a field I am passionate about that also motivates and inspires me every single day. 

    My training and education provides my clients with dependable & detail-oriented professional work. I add to the success of the creative team of any project, within budget and schedule, regardless of the nature, or location.

     After completing my Managing Esthetic License at Casal Aveda Institute, I furthered my education at Nouveau Contour Academy in Orlando, Florida receiving my certification in Permanent Cosmetics. Once a year I attend extra training courses at the International Makeup Artist Trade Show in New York City. In 2014, I received the opportunity to work on set with L'Oreal Cosmetics, C.Wonder, and Rent The Runway as the teams Pro Make-Up Artist! 


     In 2015, based on the need to match the perfect lipstick shades for my clients, I launched my own lipstick line, SMACKbyKarisa.  By using a combination of waxes, pigments and scents, SMACKbyKarisa can create a truly unique & 100% personalized lipstick for any client. 

    I display my mastery for creating the right look on every individual. I am available at my salon, Elixir Beauty & Barber Shop, but am more then willing to travel on location for the convenience of my clients!! I am always accepting new clients - check out my social media links below! XO
