We had the good fortune of connecting with Scully Carrillo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Scully, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Being a makeup artist was something I’ve always dreamed about. When I was younger, I didn’t realize this was something that I could do as a career. The thought process behind starting my own business was basically to venture out and pursue my passion. I love being a freelancer. I love making my own rules, and most importantly, I love being my own boss!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art is my passion. I love what I do. I feel I come to life when I’m in my element. I’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing people. I’ve gotten to travel thanks to my job, which feels weird calling it “my job” because it really don’t feel like a job at all. It hasn’t been easy, and it’s still not easy, but I appreciate the challenges. It keeps me humble. It keeps me grounded, and it reminds me to appreciate every single opportunity I get.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If a friend from out of town was visiting, I would take probably take them to local dives, not really the stereotypical Hollywood stuff, unless of course that’s what they wanted to do. We’d probably hit up the 6740 in Whittier for some drinks one night, Palermos in Los Feliz for dinner another night, and maybe close the weekend off with some more drinks at the Bonaventure. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband, for sure, has been my strongest supporter. I call him my dream maker because thanks to him, I was able to pursue my career in makeup. He helped me spread my wings. He encourages me when I doubt myself, and he always lifts me up when I don’t feel good enough.
