I'm Cristy Guy
Award-winning makeup artist, wardrobe stylist, beauty biz educator, lipstick lover and the Official Super Bowl LIV Confetti Launcher with big dreams and a client list which spans the globe. 23 states, Hawaii and 11 international locations to be exact!
This small town Kansas girl has gone from the farm to NFL football fields and beyond taking my makeup and styling skills nationally and internationally working with big name brands, professional athletes, celebrities and musicians on advertising campaigns, commercials, on tour and in TV and film.
Sometimes I really do have to pinch myself knowing I'm trusted by brands like Adidas, Nike Golf, Under Armour, Head & Shoulders, Netflix, Wendy's, Absolute Vodka, McDonalds, Magic the Gathering and PlayStation to bring my A game to their projects and help successfully convey their marketing messages! Same goes for when I scroll down my client list and it's full of elite athletes and top tier celebrities like Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, JJ Watt, Paul Casey, Jack Sock, Jon "Bones" Jones, Tate McRae, Ezinma, Eric Stonestreet and Wendell Pierce are just a few to name!
In fact, in earlier years you could have found my path in life bumpy and a bit curvy to say the least. Including losing my mother when I was 19 then losing my father and part of a corporate layoff . . . I found myself with . . . well with just ME and a lot of soul searching, grieving and healing to do. During these years I worked in marketing, graphic design and visual display, even though the positions were creative, I quickly realized how valuable life and time were. It was time to stop beating around the bushes and follow my dreams and passions of makeup and styling. I wasn't sure how to go about it especially living in a smaller market like Kansas City . . . but I was going to figure it out! And that's exactly what I did. I began investing in a makeup kit and products, started practicing on friends, friends of friends, former colleagues and family members and testing with photographers to create fashion stories for my portfolio. Those circumstances and that single investment led me to my current 18+ year beauty and style biz I'm running today.
Fast forward . . .these days you can find me on the set of major advertising campaigns, traveling oversees, basking on sandy beaches or front and center at Arrowhead Stadium cheering on my Kansas City Chiefs to victory!
WHO KNEW GROWING UP AS A TOMBOY; RIDING DIRT BIKES & BEING THE ONLY GIRL ON THE BLOCK THAT I WOULD UNKNOWINGLY MELD THE CAREERS OF MY PARENTS INTO A UNIQUE ONE OF MY OWN. MY MOTHER, A MAKEUP ARTIST AT OUR LOCAL MERLE NORMAN COSMETICS STORE AND MY FATHER A FARMER AND SELF-MADE BUSINESSMAN. ME . . .
A SUCCESSFUL BEAUTY AND STYLE ENTREPRENEUR.
Well, right this moment, I probably have some wardrobe returns to do, makeup to order and getting ready to return client emails & texts for upcoming projects!
Still loving this career as much as I did when I started! Now also working on a personal project helping other artists, whether aspiring or pro, harness their passions and pursue their dreams, becoming exactly who they want to be and doing exactly what they love to do. Refining their businesses so they can spend more time doing what they want to do not what they have to do. Shortening their business and "how to" learning curves. And sharing my ALL ACCESS pass with them so they too can cultivate an exciting and lucrative career in the commercial, TV and film industries. So they can love what they do as much as I do!
