Krystal is an Illinois & California state licensed esthetician with an eye for detail and a love for beauty. She is also one of the creative minds behind Ink Beauty Bar ™.

Her career in the beauty industry began as a makeup artist for Chanel in 2008. After several years of working as a freelance makeup artist, she decided to attend The Aveda Institute in Chicago. She graduated with top honors, and received her Esthetics License in 2012.

Soon after graduating from esthetics school and receiving her license, Krystal sought out Eyelash Extension training.  Over the past 6 years, she has taken advanced lash trainings with Teresa Smith of London; author of the Lash Bible, Lash Mastery by Lash FX, Volume II with Maven Artistry, Volume Master Class with Lash Makers, and has attended several US and international lash conferences to stay up to date on the latest techniques in the lash industry.

In 2015, Krystal became a certified Lash Trainer for a national lash brand. Just one year later, she became their Director of Education, spearheading their training program and revamping their curriculum. In December of 2017, Krystal decided it was time to grow as an independent Trainer and launched her curriculum under the brand Lash Chronicles.

Her latest goals are set on launching permanent makeup services in 2018! Having trained under world-renowned Daria Chuprys for Microblading, she is excited to begin offering this service soon. Krystal will also be training under Kristina Menicenco to study the powder brow and eyeliner technique.
