Krystal Salisbury BIO
My dream was born ever since I was a young girl, I dreamt of fashion, makeup, and hair, working in Hollywood with movie stars and runways. My appetite for the glamorous life all started behind the scenes in fashion school in San Diego CA at the fashion shows with my passion for the hustle and bustle of prepping the models with clothes, accessories, makeup and hair styling, and then catching a glimpse of them strutting down the runway! I loved every minute of the hectic life behind the scenes! I then started to build a portfolio to show off my makeup work. Each photo shoot began with a vision to create a story, and I enjoyed the collaboration between the artist, model, and photographer to create a work of art.
After Fashion College I continued to freelance as a makeup artist, and hairstylist working in the industry for over 10 years. I have worked with prestigious brands as a pro makeup artist for Channel, Lancôme, and Laura Mercier. I worked on several fashion shows and photo shoots from LA, Vegas, to NYC, and presently run and manage artists for bridal work.
Some of my clients include, KUSI, CNN, Washington Post, Cover Girl, Garnier. Fashion: Vogue Bambini NYC Kids Fashion Week -among many others!
In addition to building my portfolio, I was also building a family! I had always dreamt of having a little girl one day, and even to what she would look like, my dream came true when I was blessed with the love of my life, my daughter Bianca at age 25. At the time my finances were slim to none as I was not working, then unexpectedly my daughter's father died of an enlarged heart, while she was just a little baby. With this sudden devastation of loss I had to pull myself together and be strong for my little one; I wanted her to be proud of her mom and to show her that dreams can still come true even faced with tragedy. I believe that life is short, and to always say I love you to those you love, and to never hold grudges because it's not worth it. I do my best to live my life by the Golden Rule- do unto others as you would want them to do unto you. My mission is to inspire and encourage women to make their dreams come true.
With the support of my family, and friends God put into my life, I was able to start a business after saving money, while freelancing for two years, and living below my means. I decided to take my love for working on photo shoot sets, and bring a salon and photography studio collaboration together, thus I have been the proud owner of Krystal Rose Studio for five years. We are known in the Albany NY area as a beauty team for events, weddings, photo shoots, and spa parties, catering to each and every customer.
I recently had the honor to be a part of what you would call the Cinderella Dream- A girl chosen from less than fortunate circumstances given the opportunity to go to prom wearing a dress she never dreamed she could own, jewelry to splurge on, and makeup to complete her look. I was so excited to be backstage with Dinair Airbrush Makeup Artistry team to beautify these young ladies for their fashion show! Monte and Co-host Laura Marano were a delight to work with, and put on a wonderful show for Say Yes to The Prom.
I have volunteered my beauty services to organizations who help women in domestic violence situations and women in transition. I look forward to giving back to the community through my new business partnership with Liberty LiVecchi. We want to build beauty from the inside out by offering beauty building self-confidence courses, healthy living, wellness, and the ultimate beauty experience. My Beauty Philosophy- "A woman who knows her worth glows from the inside, she exudes confidence, and strength and there is nothing more beautiful." This is my goal to help women realize their true worth exceeds outside beauty and transcends time.
I have been blessed and am fortunate enough to be Co-Owner of BPure Beauty Bar in Saratoga Springs, NY and Owner of Krystal Rose Studio.
I work for looks that are timeless & classic. She is known for her "Krystal Glow" --- fresh, and glamorous!
