Carol Brown is a three-time Emmy Award winner and seven-time Emmy Award nominee in the field of makeup artistry. She is an inspirational speaker.

Carol’s ethnicity is a blend of  Swedish, French, and African American. Carol lived in Los Angeles California for over 20 years and worked extensively in Hollywood in the movie and television industry. She now resides in Arizona and Los Angeles, California. This diverse combination and her unique cultural background is part of the reason why she understands the needs of women of national and ethnic blends worldwide.

Carol has been an active supporter and benefactor of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the National Urban League, the Jenesse Center, Inc. (serving abused women and children), A Place Called Home (helping underprivileged young women get educated and into the job market), the Los Angeles Mission, Friendly House (helping women overcome substance abuse), and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA). Furthermore, she has served on the Advisory Board of the Denise Roberts Foundation, helping minority women fight and overcome breast cancer.

Carol was also the founder of the “Natural Empowerment Foundation,” an educational, nonprofit organization dedicated to serving today’s youth. It’s primary mission is to promote positive community interaction, self-respect, values, decorum, distinction, and non-violence. Under Carol’s guidance, the foundation helps impart a sense of responsibility and value to at-risk youths, which, in turn, leads to empowerment, education, and inspiring others to do the same. The foundation’s main channel for transformation was its “Cinderella Scholastic Achievement Award Program.” This program encouraged young, multicultural high school women to write essays defining their true ideals, character, and moral fiber, thereby expressing their individual meaning of high self-esteem, positive self-image, and inner strength. As a result, they would continue to promote the core values of the foundation: positive community interaction, principles, self-respect, distinction, and decorum.

Carol’s many significant achievements and a lifetime of service, has led to her biography being included in the distinguished Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who of American Women, and Who’s Who in the World. Carol’s adopted grandparents were educators.  Carol’s grandfather held the Mathematical Chair at Lincoln University in Missouri for seven years, her grandmother held a Doctorate in Theology, and Carol’s adopted mother entered college at the age of 16 getting a degree in English and Journalism and worked on some of the most prestigious Newspapers in Los Angeles.
