We had the good fortune of connecting with Corea Elaine and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Corea, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Taking risks can either make you or break you. I took a risk and moved me & my son to Dallas without ever visiting and it was the best decision of my life. Coming from a small city like Flint, Mi didn’t really allow me to grow or reach my fullest potential. But after taking the the risk and moving here I feel I’ve grown so much in a short amount of time and finally have a platform to expand my business and really be successful.

What should our readers know about your business?
I first got interested in makeup in high school. I wasn’t serious about it, it was just fun to me. But as I got older I learned I was actually good at it and could make money doing it. Then when covid hit and I lost my job, I really buckled down and started doing it regularly. The goal in life is to make a living doing what you love to do so it never feels like your working. Making women feel good for a special event in their life & being apart of photos that will last a lifetime is priceless.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?Definitely have to hit up Taboo on Fridays. They have the best happy hour in the city. I love going to Legacy Hall on Saturdays. They have various eateries inside and an outdoor shopping area. Also have to stop by Dallabases for brunch and mimosa towers. 

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My promo team IMG gave me the platform to network & meet the people/clients I have around me today. Moving here without knowing a soul was extremely hard and especially difficult with trying to build a consistent clientele. Im eternally grateful for everybody on my team for being apart of my growing success. Special thanks to my first friend I made in dallas, Knocky, for introducing me to them.
