Krystal B. Armstrong is a professional makeup artist, certified herbalist, and owner of Andrelle’s Natural Skin Care. She is also a wife and mother of two, who loves all things beauty and has an extreme passion for giving the world healthy skin.
I first met Krystal in November 2016 at CLASS – a week-long, intensive workshop for beauty professionals in Portland, Oregon. I have to admit, I was a little intimidated by her spunky, no nonsense demeanor, however, by the end of the week I had learned that she is an amazing and successful makeup artist with a heart of gold (but still spunky)! I recently had the opportunity to catch up with Krystal to learn more about her and her brand – Andrelle’s Natural Skin Care.
