On this episode of the Friends in Beauty Podcast I welcome my Friend in Beauty Ciara Talley to the Friends in Beauty guest chair.

Ciara is a Top Makeup Artist in Washington DC + Beauty Educator who specializes in creating everyday wearable glam for Women of Color. She has had the opportunity to travel and work with beautiful women like Ari Lennox, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Tracee Jenkins from the TV show Peace of Mind With Taraji.

As an educator, Ciara specializes in helping her beauty partners elevate their artistry and confidence through online master classes and 1-1 coaching.

I absolutely enjoyed this open and very real conversation with Ciara. We’ve known each other for years but I never knew much about Ciara’s journey in the beauty industry so this was very refreshing.

In this interview Ciara shares:

-How she recently left her 13yr career at the height of pandemic to pursue makeup full time

-Details on her new Back To The Basics program for Makeup Artists + how she’s helping artists elevate their artistry

-Her relationship with fear & her solution to comparison syndrome

-The power of writing down your goals

-Details about her Reclaimer community

-And so many more amazing gems sprinkled throughout

If you’ve ever counted yourself out. If you’ve let fear hold you back or if you need a dose of inspiration to keep moving forward then this interview is for you. Be sure to share it with someone who needs the same. Let’s go ahead and jump into this chat with Ciara Talley and if you’d like to watch our beautiful faces then tune in on YouTube.
