The desire to 'create' has always been of great importance in Carla's career decisions and after completing a BA Honours Degree in Film and Theatre at Reading University, she went on to qualify with a Certification in Professional Makeup Artistry at Delamar Academy, London. Here she developed her talent and benefitted from expert training by leading fashion and film makeup artists. 

Carla went on to hone her skills with the renowned cosmetics company, M.A.C Cosmetics.  Her passion for her craft was acknowledged by M.A.C.'s creative Director James Gager to be one of the three winners worldwide to showcase a makeup design promoting shades from the Spring 2008 Travel Retail Exclusive Sets. Carla's face chart was printed in the M.A.C Look Book and distributed to all of the M.A.C Cosmetics Travel Retail counters around the world.

Carla currently works freelance within her industry and her portfolio clearly portrays her style to be versatile, creative and polished. Her outstanding attention to detail and friendly, caring attitude is always respected by her colleagues. She is committed to reach the highest levels of perfection and believes "in this industry you have to always be inspired and must never stop learning as it's the only way to become good at what you do... I want to be the best version of myself that I can be."

Her dedication to providing an outstanding service has given her the opportunity to work as the key designer as well as assisting world renowned makeup artists in vast areas of her industry within fashion/film and television.
