Carolinebeautyinc - We Chat To The Makeup Artist You NEED To Follow!

If you haven't heard of Carolinebeautyinc, then you should have! The self-taught (we know!) makeup artist is a go-to Instagram account for all makeup addicts as she continuously wows her 250,000 followers with her gorgeous looks. 

Caroline was the winner of the very first Blusho MUA competition last year and since then we have followed her makeup journey step by step admiring all of her flawless looks along the way. 

Now ready for a whole new adventure, Caroline launched her long awaited YouTube channel this week meaning we can now all attempt her looks at home, woohoo! 

We caught up with Caroline to find out a bit more about her makeup career, tips and favourite products. Scroll down to find out more! 

Name: Caroline Kavlakian, I don't have a middle name! 

Age: Just turned 28, but still feel & think that I am 18 years old!! 

Location: I live in Boca Raton, Florida. I was born in Athens, Greece and moved to South Florida when I was about 9 years old.

How long have you been a makeup artist? I never considered myself a makeup artist until I recently went to Makeup Artistry school and became certified. Even though I am self taught, I still wanted to have a certificate in my hand because this has always been a true passion of mine ever since I can remember. I can proudly say that I am a self-taught artist who is also certified (LOL). I began doing some freelance work and I just love making women feel beautiful! (We love this!) 

How did you get started? When I was in 6th grade, my parents wouldn't let me wear makeup at that time. I remember going to school and borrowing my friend's blue eyeliner and lip gloss and putting it on in the bathroom before classes. After school ended, I used to wipe the makeup off so that my parents wouldn't see it. It was love at first sight! 😉

What has been the highlight of your career so far? I would have to say opening up an Instagram account has been the highlight and also the beginning of making my dreams come true. My boyfriend has been supportive of me from day one, he purchased a Canon 70D camera for me when he saw that I was trying to take pictures with my iPhone. He loves photography and has taught me so much about lighting and about manual camera settings and all that good stuff! I love you Eddie!

What is your favourite look you have created? My favorite look probably is the look I had done with Black & White eyeliner where they both merge together. I think black and white is so classy yet so fierce! 

Caroline's favourite look
Do you have a "go-to" makeup look? For an every day look, I normally have neutral eyeshadows on with a little bit of mascara, I don't wear eyeliner on a daily basis. I also love the color PINK and normally wear a light pink lip gloss.

Who inspires you? I have many people I look up to and that inspire me in the industry, but the main person that inspires me is my mom. She has believed in me from the very beginning, when I didn't believe in myself. She has always been there for me and always told me that God has blessed my hands with this talent we call Makeup Artistry. She will always me my number one fan and I will always be hers. 

What is your best beauty secret? I don't really have any beauty secrets but one that I do tell my supporters is to take care of your skin. SKINCARE is so important, and needs to be started early in life. Without good skin, you cannot have amazing makeup no matter how much foundation you put on. Oh and stay away from the sun, and if you love the beach, load up on sunscreen! 

If you could do one celebrity's makeup, who would it be? Kim Kardashian for sure! :-)

How has social media helped your career? Social media has been the reason I have met so many amazing people and made great friends in the makeup industry. It has also helped me connect and work with many of the companies that I have always loved. 

What advice would you give to aspiring makeup artists? Best advice I could give anyone, always believe in yourself. If you believe in yourself, others will believe in you. Work hard, never give up and always be humble. 

What's next for CarolineBeautyInc? I would have to say a BLOG & YOUTUBE!
