A self-taught makeup artist, Carly Giglio holds the title of Manager of Pro Artistry at Stila Cosmetics. A native New Yorker who now resides with her family in New Jersey, Carly is no stranger to wearing many hats. Not only does she oversee the brand’s Pro Artist relations and represent Stila in the artist community, but she also assists with creative visuals, product development, marketing, education, and acts as Sarah Lucero’s first-hand backstage at New York Fashion Week, on campaign shoots and more.
Carly’s love of painting and her background in Fine Arts are what first sparked her love for makeup application and started her journey to what would eventually lead to her career working for a nationally recognized cosmetics brand. She began refining her makeup skills working part-time at Ulta Beauty, where one of her favorite aspects of the job was connecting with people and making them feel good about themselves through the power of makeup – transforming a blank canvas into a work of art. After connecting with Stila, Carly spent two years freelancing and two years in Sales, building strong relationships, learning the business and expanding her artistry, before advancing within the brand to where she is now.
Carly has an infectious personality, undeniable passion and thrives most off of creating art while meeting new people. What she loves most about her job is that she gets to work with everyone, whether it’s a high profile client or a new bride. Over the years she’s learned how to keep calm in chaotic situations by practicing this motto: “Be prepared, think ahead, stay focused and take it one step at a time.”
When she’s not hard at work innovating or consulting with a client, Carly can be found occupying her other role as a full-time mom and wife to her loving family. A true “Stila Girl” at heart, Carly continues to make a daily impact on her clients, and is excited to be a part of Stila’s growing success.
