Learn about the local makeup artist bringing big city celebrity glam to the Tri-state beauty scene.
When it comes to one of the most important days of your life, you want to look your best. That’s where Cynthia Crist, founder and chief artist of Art of Makeup Collective can help.
A veteran makeup artist with 16 years experience in celebrity, bridal, beauty, film and editorial makeup Crist describes herself as a “meticulous visionary with a passion for transformation.”
Employed as a MAC makeup artist Crist relocated from Cincinnati to L.A. and had the opportunity to work with some of today’s biggest stars at exclusive events in the entertainment and fashion industry. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with celebrities such as; Carmen Electra, Devon Aoki, Vivica Fox, Pamela Anderson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley, Marilyn Manson and Dave Navarro,” Crist says. In 2002 Crist began as a makeup artist with HBO, and soon after covered runway for New York City Fashion Week.
The experience of balancing a career in retail makeup with freelancing in the entertainment and fashion industries has earned Crist the reputation of being incredibly versatile. “I am able to do any look. I do everything from extremely natural headshot makeup to extravagant stage quality makeup for rock stars. I am known for my range,” Crist explains.
Shortly after returning to Cincinnati Crist launched Art of Makeup Collective to bring her breadth of experience to the Tri-state’s beauty scene. She explains her business is a “response to the overwhelming demand for on-location, reputable, personal makeup artists for every occasion.”
However Crist brings more to the table than herself, she has a wealth of connections that are part of a larger tribe of reputable beauty experts in the Cincinnati area “ I also refer to other beauty professionals that possess the same level of expertise and professionalism as I do. I am big on networking and creating a community that can learn from one another, since we all have completely different experiences that we can bring to our clients,” Crist says.

Tattoo, scar and birthmark coverup sessions are also available as well as private makeup lessons. Prices range from $65.00-$150.00 depending on the event and size of the party.
