Welcome to my blog, Speaking of Chloe, a blog where all of my creative passions are merged together in one place. What once began as a simple beauty blog has now blossomed into my overall creative space for makeup, graphic design, and writing. Enjoy!
My name is Chloe Catarina and I'm a makeup artist based out of Atlanta, GA. I first got my start in the makeup industry in 2013 and I've had the pleasure of working for a range of cosmetic companies such as Ulta Beauty, Sephora, and Too Faced Cosmetics.
The bulk of my makeup experience came from my 6 years working at Sephora where I was able to perfect my craft on a wide range of skin tones and face shapes on a daily basis. Working my way up from Makeup Artist to Senior Artist to Services Lead, I had worked with–and seen–it all and was ready to take on my next challenge!
When I decided to leave the retail cosmetic industry, I naturally gravitated towards bridal and event makeup as a freelancer. Here, I was able to thrive in my favorite makeup artistry styles from natural glam to colorful cut-creases. I now have my own freelance company, Haus of Catarina, where I let my passion for makeup thrive! If you're interested in getting your makeup done by me for your special day please click here.
Beauty Products I Love
Outside of my makeup career, I am also an art student studying for my bachelor's degree in graphic design and writing at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
I love all things branding, logos, and web design. As a preteen, I was bit by the coding bug when I was introduced to the wonderful world of MySpace. There, I uncovered my love for coding and web design which later led me to work with beauty bloggers around the world.
As time passed, I found myself wanting to get into the beauty blogging world as well and I've had my blog, Speaking of Chloe, ever since! My blog is all things beauty and is where my love for writing, graphic design, and makeup all come together in one place.
With my writing, I also aspire to be an author who writes crazy sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction novels one day!
