Crista Llewellyn is a special effects makeup artist based out of Los Angeles, CA. She got her start in special effects in high school when she learned how to create cotton and latex wounds for the play ‘Bury the Dead.’ She fell in love and the rest is history. After high school, she went to San Francisco State University where she got her BA in Technical Theatre and Design with a focus on Costume Design in 2012. In 2014 she graduated from The Blush School of Makeup in San Francisco with a certificate in master makeup artistry. Shorty after, she returned to Los Angeles to work as a freelance artist. Crista currently focuses on set work, working freelance for independent films and new media, as well as teaching at Cinema Makeup School. While her work ranges from beauty to SFX to costumes, her strengths lie in prosthetic application, airbrushing, injury FX, and fabrication. Some of her most notable works include Searching, In Full Bloom, Oscar’s Hotel, Fight of the Living Dead, House of Demons, and Miss 2059.
