Interview with Nikki Gutierrez l Makeup Artist, Owner & CEO Of ShopStayWild.com

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career? 
Being a makeup artist, the hours are so long and unpredictable. I discovered Etsy about 2 years ago and I desperately wanted to try selling my creations. I had just had my son at the time, he was about 9 months and I didn't want to leave him at home with a babysitter to go find a 9-5 job I hated that would literally pay me pennies. So I guess you can say my inspiration was my son. I wanted a way to make money, aside from makeup artistry, that would allow me to be with him as much as I could. 

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
What I enjoy most about being a makeup artist is making people feel beautiful. It's such an amazing feeling truly loving what you do, and people love you for it. That's the only career that people are impressed with the fact that I never went to school or had any proper instruction. Everything I know, I taught myself. 
What I enjoy most about StayWild is creating. I absolutely love coming up with new designs. I can't begin to explain the awesome feeling of shipping my designs to Italy, London, and Spain. I feel so blessed that people like my creations just as much as I do.
 3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
This may sound cheesy but every time I do a brides makeup & she's so happy she could cry, I'm proud. When I pack up an order, I'm proud. Every time I'm overworked and overwhelmed, I'm proud. Every time I pay my bills on time & In full, I'm so darn proud. I'm a single mom of two, supporting herself while running two business. When I say that, I'm proud. 
 4) Where do you see yourself in the future?  
I see great things happening in the future for both my businesses & myself. I'm so determined to succeed, I know greatness is right around the corner. I think the key to success is working your booty off & not being afraid to take risks. 
 5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
Really think and consider how much work goes into it. There are nights I'm on set till 6am, then I wake up at 9am and keep on working. There are days where I have to pack up 60 orders by myself. The point is....none of this feels like work to me. I am so in love what I do. If you have a passion and a dream...go for it. Your going to have to work your butt off to succeed but if you love what you do, you'll work with a big smile on your face. Don't give up on your dreams and don't ever push your dreams aside for anyone else. Always stay wild. 

6) Which would you say is your favorite item from your shop at the moment?
Oh this is a hard one!!! Probably the "Espanola" Sunglasses. I love the clear frame & floral details of these Sunnies. They rock my world! I hope they rock yours too.
