    Art of Makeup_Join Us For An Afternoon With Crystal Wright

    Let me tell you about Crystal Wright! I discovered Crystal 18 years ago when I was ready to up my career path to the next level of success, when I was looking to work in fashion runway, commercials, music videos, editorial advertising, catalogue, and fashion photo shoots. I just needed to know how to get there! Fortunately there was someone out there that specifically taught makeup artists just this skill, and that was Crystal Wright.

    Crystal had already written an entire thick book on the subject called Crystal Wright’s Hair Makeup & Fashion Styling Career Guide, AND she published 1st Hold Magazine, the very first magazine that taught makeup artists the business of makeup artistry in the fashion industry. That magazine included a huge list of major makeup brands that offered discounts to pro makeup artists. I had never heard of such a thing! Remember, this was the year 2000, and most of the secrets in the industry were kept secret, that is until Crystal opened that door. I contacted all of my favorite brands, scooped up my memberships, and built up my kit with pro favorites that I learned about in her magazine. I learned so much from Crystal! She taught me how to build my portfolio so I could get a reputable fashion agent in Los Angeles, and I did. She gave me the confidence to meet with an agent in the first place. After learning marketing, my career exploded in a new direction, fashion!

    It’s no wonder Crystal has followers all over the world who read her books and take her one on one coaching classes and online marketing workshops. She is the master of marketing for hair and makeup artists! She has so many ideas to get you work and keep you current in this fast-paced world of technology that you don’t have to figure it out alone. She has coached some of the most successful artists in the world who apply makeup to the biggest celebrities in the world. It almost seems silly trying to mention all of the names because that would be impossible, but some of the artists she is working with now are personal artists to Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Tyra Banks, and Nikki Minaj.

    The Art of Makeup is thrilled to host international best-selling author, marketing expert, motivational coach, and President of the Crystal Agency, Crystal Wright. We couldn’t be more excited to host her for her very first workshop in the Pacific Northwest. She has taught and inspired artists for 3 decades and believes that every freelance artist can transform their artistry into a successful business enterprise, and has helped thousands do just that.

    Crystal Wright’s seminar, Marketing for Hair and Makeup Artists, will cover how to self-market yourself into a powerful brand as well as the finer points of booking through social media, negotiating rates, and more.
