Working many years as a Make-up Artist, Chrysalis has had the chance to work with a wide range of notable clients, including face painting for the corporate headquarters for Google, and theatrical make-up for Cirque du Soleil. Now having returned to the San Francisco Bay Area to continue her career as a freelance Make-up Artist, she anticipates a myriad of advantageous occasions where she will be able to put her comprehensive range of skills to use.
Chrysalis Rose is extremely passionate about the art of makeup in all its forms. She was introduced to makeup as a young actor growing up in the theatre, and instantly she was inspired by the profound transformation that could be achieved with paint and powder. She began designing her own make-up for her fantastical characters on stage, and quickly found herself wanting to transform more of the world around her. Seeing that "All the world's a stage", her love of make-up quickly spread to other avenues of interactive artistic expression. Since 2002, Chrysalis Rose has owned her own company, All That Glitters Face Paint, a local business in the San Francisco Bay Area, providing face and body art and theatrical make-up. Her greatest passions are body painting, avant-garde styles and fantasy themes in make-up art.
Chrysalis moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream and further her education at the Make-up Designory. This served as an invaluable learning experience, where she trained in the Art of Beauty and Character Make-up as well as Studio Hairstyling. She practiced and refined her techniques for film and television applications, as well as for print and runway. The most adventurous and engaging experience at MUD was learning Special Make-up Effects in a working lab. There, she explored the lifecasting process for actors in films, and found a passion for sculpting and creating prosthetics.
Beauty can be defined as: "The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality." Whether that form of Beauty is a simple flattering makeup, a dramatic character makeup that enhances or disguises the features, or an extreme FX makeup, Chrysalis Rose can transform her canvas of the face and body in any number of artistic ways. Chrysalis Rose believes that Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and promises that the make-up techniques she provides will help to open your eyes to your own unique brand of Beauty.
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." The Make-up Art Chrysalis creates facilitates the ongoing play, and provides the magic of transformation for all the players as they make their exits and entrances in this life. Chrysalis' Make-up is sometimes used for entertainment purposes, sometimes to help people become something else other than what they were before the artistic application, sometimes to help people rise to a level of being, so that they are free to celebrate or act in ways their natural selves cannot. Make-up can be corrective when necessary, however it is the mission of Chrysalis Rose to use Make-up to enhance what is already within, and bring it to the surface.
