Meet Trailblazer Claudette B.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Claudette B.

Claudette, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started out taking makeup classes from MAC 15 years ago. Then, I finally went to a small makeup academy in Sacramento where I’m originally from. I ended up working for the makeup school as an educator and was also their lead artist for photo shoots, events, and weddings. Working so closely with skin, I got inspired to get my esthetics license.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been a fairly smooth journey with a few major bumps on the road. I moved from Sacramento to San Diego in 2012. Started practicing esthetics and was also hired at MAC as a makeup artist. My advice to young women is to manage your time wisely, follow your heart, work hard, have faith, be flexible and respectful. Everything will work out the way it’s supposed to.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Claudette_MUA – what should we know?
I am a professional makeup artist and a licensed esthetician. I specialize in beauty makeup and men’s grooming. I’m very proud to have the knowledge that I do now working with different brands and clientele. MAC really shaped me as an artist. I think what sets me apart from other makeup artists is my extensive knowledge in skincare due to my esthetics background.

Do you recommend any apps, books or podcasts that have been helpful to you?
My favorite books are:
E-squared, The 4 agreements, The Alchemist, The Secret. I listen to podcasts that promote spirituality. It really helps me have a positive outlook on life.
