Creativity, Canva & Congratulations?

Hello! I'm Cristy, you may know me as a commercial makeup artist and wardrobe stylist but I'm also a Canva nerd:-)! And I mean this in the best possible way. Since, discovering Canva, I literally keep this program open as much as my makeup kit! It's available on my desktop and my phone all day, everyday.

Just like my favorite tools and products have changed my makeup game, Canva has been a HUGE game changer in the marketing, communication and process sides of my makeup and styling business.

Can I get a woo woo, heck yeah, thumbs up or a simple Congratulations? I just received this award from Canva for creating 1500 designs! The proof is in the pudding so they say! Receiving this little notice of achievement, is the icing on the cake! I am an affiliate of Canva no secret there because it is truly one of those tools that makes my life easier, my business look amazing and it can do the same for you. If you are unfamiliar with Canva; it is a free-to-use online graphic design tool with a PRO usage option available. Read on for ways to use it in your freelance makeup business! Oh, and check out the quotes I whipped together for you:-)

In the table below you will see just how many ways you can incorporate Canva into your daily business (okay, maybe not daily but you might get addicted just like I am!). Showcase your work, present a professional and consistent brand image, create that product packaging for the lipstick line you've been thinking about and quickly design eye-catching promos to reel your clients in with . . .
