We had the good fortune of connecting with Karen B Bracamonte and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Karen B, why did you pursue a creative career?
Since I was in kindergarten I would always get excited about projects and creating stuff, but I always ended up adding my touch or creating something different then the rest of the kids. as I grew I loved to paint ceramic loved art class (but wasnt the best at drawing lol) I made and sell head bows and headbands for little girls till I found my niche in makeup and beauty!!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a Makeup and hair Artist at Nayes makeup and I specialize in Brides and travel thru out Arizona and out of state Mexico and anywhere I’m needed!! I have an amazing team of hair and makeup that is always ready for you and your wedding party! The most proud I am at the moment is that in my short career going on 4 yrs I’m featured in Vogue British this year for June and July edition not once but twice I’m so over the moon by that and here it shows that dedication to what you love doing and passion can take you many places. It hasn’t been easy this industry can be tough but God has sent all the right people to make this journey as amazing as it has been and removed people that didn’t have their best intentions towards me or my brand! I want the world to know that there is no need to change who you are to be in this industry and fit in if this small town girl with love determination dedication and staying true to her self has brought me to where I’m at today you can doit too!
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
If my best friend was visiting I would definitely take her to Bisbee Arizona if you guys haven’t visited it yet this is a must there is something about Bisbee small town full of color great people it has so much caracter you’ll find your self wondering why you didn’t visit before! I would take her to have our morning coffe at Bisbee coffee company, then follow to breakfast at the bisbee breakfast club this are must for dinner theres amazing restaurants like cafe roka, the table, screaming banshee pizza . We can spend the nigth at copper Queen hotel and have a ghost tour. and if we want more privacy and experience something totally different we can stay at The Shady Dell in bisbee and stay in one if their amazing vintage trailers and have breakfast or dinner at the super cute vintage restaurant Dots. we can end it with a mine tour at the bisbee mine it’s a classic. Just typing this makes me want to grab my family on a ride to Bisbee for a fun day of exploring and eating mmmm eating …
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
