Crystal got her start in make-up artistry while completing her degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California in 2000. Quickly gaining experience on Rodeo Drive with many luxury lines at Barney’s and Nieman Marcus, she took a job with Christian Dior in Chicago as traveling make-up artist for all Marshall Fields accounts. Upon her relocation to Indianapolis, Crystal kept her artistry honed as a freelancer. Her love for make-up then took her to Saks Fifth Avenue where she excelled as a sales consultant and artist for a make-up and skin care line. After her husband and she had their first son, Crystal formed Beauty by Crystal in the summer of 2005 and began doing what she loves as a full-time artist (and full-time mommy) in Indianapolis. With the experience of having worked with every major make-up and skin care line in the world, every skin color and skin type, you’ll find that Beauty by Crystal provides unparalleled skill and responsible pricing for in-home consultations, formal occasions, master classes, high fashion, runway, commercial and bridal make-up artistry needs. Some of Crystal's most recent clients have been the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, ESPN, FFA, and NCAA.
