You’re amazing, but not as stunning as you’d like to believe, says one of the world’s most recognised beauty experts.

What I’ve learnt is the beauty world has been very protective of its secrets, but I was born with them.
She says she has a very strong sense of self and will not let anyone take that away from her.
“I’m a perfectionist, but that is what I want to do, is be the best I can be,” she says.
Christina, now 47, has been modelling for 20 years, with stints in Brazil and Europe.
She began modelling at the age of 12 when her parents brought her to the US to study photography.
“My father was a photographer, so I would take photos of people,” she recalls.

Marceleno started teaching Christina and Agueleros model tricks.
She taught them how to be emotional, how to say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and how to create a smile.
“He was teaching me the importance of confidence,” Christina recalls.
Christina and Marcelias first film together in New York, but Marcelano moved them to London to start filming in the United States.
“We didn’t realise it at the time but we had a huge advantage,” Marceline says.
“In the US, there are so many beauty standards, so we could say ‘no, I don’t like it here’.” When they were in New Zealand filming, Marcielos family was very supportive.
