Crist Ballas (born August 11, 1965, Saint Paul, Minnesota) is a make-up artist for film and television. Ballas owns and operates Metamorphosis Make-Up Artistry; a full service make-up and prosthetic laboratory located in Minnesota.A childhood passion for the classic Universal monsters, coupled with a love of the fine arts led Ballas toward the rather unconventional study of makeup.

He continues to be an innovator in his field, and is known for his work in natural, beauty and ultra-realistic prosthetic makeups.Ballas spent seven years as a make-up artist on the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 and supplied make-up and effects for the 1996 feature film and the spin-off The Mystery Science Theater Hour. He also worked on five films for Arnold Schwarzenegger: Jingle All the Way, Batman & Robin, End of Days, The 6th Day, and Collateral Damage.In 2009 Ballas was part of the Academy Award winning makeup team for J. J. Abrams' Star Trek. His television and movie credits include: The Straight Story, A Simple Plan, Sweet Land, Double Jeopardy, Reindeer Games, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Mallrats, The Love Guru, The 13th Warrior, The Forbidden Kingdom, Stuck Between Stations, Changhen ge, The Warlords, Beauty and the Geek, Let's Bowl and the BBC's Planet Earth Live.Ballas also works as a producer, taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota for the BFA program and makes prosthetics for the medical industry.Ballas feels that his greatest creation to date is his daughter Matia.

1I feel the most interesting thing about his craft is the diversity and how it incorporates other occupations into his work: chemistry, anatomy, medical prosthetics, dentistry, sculpture, mold-making, painting, hairstyling, mechanical engineering, design, research and development, color matching, continuity, on set diplomacy, budgeting and managing projects. However, most important; is the combination of all these elements into one discipline.
2All the world is a stage...And all the men and women merely bad actors.
