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

Hi Corina, why did you pursue a creative career?
I wanted to pursue an artistic and creative career because I love meeting new customers daily. Seeing different faces with the business brings a smile to my heart. I love helping women reach their beauty goals, pro tips with matching skin tones and educating women about makeup and skin. I love being able to do what I love and enjoy working with so many different types of professionals reaching their goals and don’t have the time to do their makeup. I love having different types of environments something new every time is why I do this. I started my cosmetics line after three and half years of becoming a Makeup Artist selling healthy products to clients and new customers. I chose the natural route because I always want to know what kind of products I use since my skin is sensitive. I use to be able to use all kinds of products but as started to get older by twenty three I had to give up certain products that were drying out my skin, Natural products protect and nourish the skin more than “smell good” products. I create a brand that natural ingredients that safe for all skin types especially sensitive skin.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Makeup By Corina G. Cosmetics is a natural products that made for all skin types and especially sensitive skin. I’m excited to see my men skin care line and adding more and new products to offer. I got here by a friend that help me and lead me into this business I create for a cosmetics and skin care. Starting a business is never easy and hard at first because there’s so much that comes with business and can be overleming at first. I never gave up on how to figure out how to make things work out until I wanted to learn more which turned me to school for Business Marketing. The lesson i’ve learned along the way is staying consistent is key with posting and keep the audience engaged with new products. Makeup By Corina G. Cosmetics will be a favorite to go cosmetics and skin care line. My formula is made in Canada with safe and natural ingredients you can trust. Also proud to say that we are an animal cruelty free company.
