Tell us your bold boss story!:
I’ve always loved makeup! From a very young age I was playing with my mom's makeup all the way from the 1980's. As I grew up, she would buy me makeup kits from the drug store. Little did she know, she was nurturing a love for a career as a makeup artist.
In middle and high school, you would see me rocking every color eyeshadow known to woman. In high school I learned that you can indeed have a career as a makeup artist and decided that one day I would pursue it!
After college, I became a licensed esthetician and certified makeup artist. For the first 4 years of my career, I worked under another makeup artist. I started as an assistant and worked my way up to senior artist.
In my fifth year, I decided to start Creative Contour by Carla. I LOVE my job! It is so much fun to play with all the different colors of makeup and make every client feel their most beautiful! 2019 is my second year in business and I cannot wait to see what is to come.
We're all about bold boss moments, tell us about one of yours!:
One of my biggest bold boss moments was finishing my first year in business with a profit!
What advice or words of encouragement do you have for the Bold Boss Tribe?:
Never give up on your dreams, ever! You never know when they will come true! Also, hard work pays off. I wouldn't have finishing my first year in business with a profit without hard work!
Also, believe it or not: don't be afraid to network! I used to be super super shy. This year I pushed myself to start networking and have met so many wonderful folks! Also, I have met so many makeup artists who have proven to be very helpful and have given me so much advice!
