We sat down with Carla in our most recent Artist Spotlight.
Using only one word, name your makeup style?
I always try to create looks that glow from within!
The big WHY? Why makeup for you?
Makeup was always something I have had an interest in and to be honest I can't imagine doing anything else now. I love that I get to work with different people/ faces every day and to create something completely different depending on the brief/event.
The best piece of advice you have ever received?
Never stop learning - I was told by my university tutor that you can never stop learning and growing as an artist, and i couldn't agree more. I constantly educate myself on new techniques to ensure I don't become set in my ways.
What is your go-to holy grail product?
Armani luminous silk foundation - it works on most skin types and mixes well with so many other products.
The ultimate MUA debate, Bar or Individual lashes?
Individual 100%. I don't even carry strip lashes in my kit anymore as all my clients tend to want natural glam!
Who inspires/excites you?
My number one would have to be James Molloy - I love his unique style of beauty. He seems to find inspiration in everything and create insanely creative looks from this inspiration.
What’s next for you?
I would love to get back into more editorial work. As my commercial work has picked up over the past few years, I don't have as much time to spend creatively working on an editorial series.
8. Red wine or white wine?
Neither - I'm not really a wine kinda girl, but I am partial to a glass of red with a cheese board!
