I started my makeup artistry and hair styling business in 2017 at the age of 26 while still working full time in HR in an unrelated industry. I had the full support of my family, friends and my husband.
in 2019 I started studying my Diploma of Beauty Therapy at a specialised beauty college, and it was towards the end of that year that tragedy struck and my 29 year old husband was killed in a motor vehicle accident. My whole world was changed in an instant.
Over the following months I had a choice to give up on everything I had built, or to push through and persevere. I thankfully chose the later, and channelled the pain into passion for my work. I released a skin care line which ultimately I ended up stopping, but learnt an massive amount from it and am so happy to have done that.
I moved cities a few years later, and essentially started from scratch again and had to rebuild my business, and now it is the biggest its ever been.
I am now training new local artists, running workshops and still working in the wedding and beauty industry daily.
Meet Emily Carraro, a successful business owner, entrepreneur, makeup artist, and hairstylist, whose journey from tragedy to triumph captivates hearts and ignites inspiration. Emily’s story is one of overcoming adversity with grace, determination, and a passion for her craft.
In the face of personal tragedy when she lost her husband in a motor vehicle accident in 2019, Emily refused to be defined by her circumstances. Instead, she turned her pain into power and channelled her energy into building a thriving beauty business. As a solo female entrepreneur, Emily has not only mastered the art of makeup and hairstyling but has also created an empire that stands as a beacon of strength for others facing challenges.
Emily’s unique approach to beauty goes beyond the surface. Through her work, she not only transforms appearances but also empowers individuals to embrace their inner beauty and strength. Her business is a celebration of resilience, self-love, and the transformative power of beauty.
