Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, Carolina Dali was fascinated by fashion and sought out only the most challenging opportunities to improve her understanding of that field. While attending the High School of Fashion Industries in NYC she was presented the opportunity to design the makeup looks for the school's yearly runway presentations. It was during that first presentation that she realized her love for painting and drawing could merge perfectly with fashion in the craft that is makeup artistry.
Her career began in earnest once she moved to Europe where she began freelancing for various cosmetic brands such as Dior, Lancome, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. A wiz kid at her craft by the age of 21, she was selected by Dior to serve as their National Makeup Artist. She went on to further her career in the cosmetic industry at Yves Saint Laurent before enrolling and graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Human Resources.
Since returning to the United States, she has managed to collaborate with such prestigious photographers as Terry Richardson, Francesco Carrozzini, Sofia & Mauro, Stephen Shore, Robert Maxwell, Marcus Mam, Jason Kim and Vanina Sorrenti. This has led to wonderful editorial and advertising campaigns for V magazine, Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Lula, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Vogue, L'Uomo Vogue, Tank, Marie Claire and Nike. In addition, Carolina has touched the faces of numerous celebrities including Charlize Theron, Lauryn Hill and Liza Minnelli.
