Both her mother and my aunt were Fashion Designers. Carol has modeled in the states of NY, MO, CT, MA, DC and so many other locations. At some point in her life Carol had the opportunity to model for Fashion Fair Show where Audrey Smalls was the commentator at that time.

Q&A With Carol Wilson

BS:  So many of us would like to enter into the realms of entrepreneurship. What are some mistakes we should avoid making?

Carol Wilson: Avoid rushing into your business without doing some research and working on a business plan. Many times people feel like they don’t need one or they say it’s in my head. Without a business plan it will be hard for your business to stay on track. No lender will take you serious about your business if you don’t have one. If you don’t know how to do a business plan you should contact Small Business Administration and tell them you need to contact SCORE. They will help you achieve that goal.

BS:  Why have you chosen the Cosmetic industry?

Carol Wilson: I use to be a model and when I was modeling my makeup never seem to match my skin color. I began to look around at the faces on TV and I realize that no matter what your ethnicity was there were many shades in each race. Back in the day. if you were a person of color you either look like you were gray or the makeup made you darker then what you were. So my partner and I decided to venture out and create a line that would meet everyone’s skin tone.

BS:  Has this industry been a rewarding one?

Carol Wilson: Yes most definitely! I love seeing women putting on our make up and the happiness that comes over their faces brings joy to my heart. Watching women try on Voluptuous Lip Gloss for the first time and they realize that their lips look gorgeous and they don’t stick together like most leading brand.
