It’s so inspiring to see other females succeed in business. I had the pleasure of Interviewing entrepreneur Klara Sabotkoski, owner of Klara Cosmetics. Not only is she currently running six companies, she has won ‘Telstra Business Woman of the Year’ and Klara Cosmetics sold out within its first week. Stay tuned for my product reviews in the coming weeks.
Firstly what is 100% colour pigmentation?
Pigmentation is the amount of concentration that the products contain, the more pigmented they are, the higher the concentration that they have and the saturation (intensity) of the product. Klara Cosmetic’s products are 100% pigmented which shows through the colour and quality of our products.
With over 25 years in the industry and running 6 businesses, what skills do you think you need in the industry to achieve success and keep motivated?
Being motivated to always push yourself to get to the next level. You can always improve no matter what. Being meticulous and having an eye for detail ensures you are always delivering your best. I am always trying to bring the most innovative technologies to market, so being creative and thinking outside the square helps a lot. I think that believing in yourself and having an unshakeable positive attitude towards everything helps you to be successful, because there are always challenges and setbacks along the road to success. I also love to learn from the world stage and from my competitors to see what I can do bigger, brighter, and better.
What has been your proudest moment in your career?
During our launch week into the Australian Market we completely sold out in our stockists. I have also achieved success in many hair and beauty industry awards over the years which makes me proud of my achievements. Telstra Business Woman of the Year was probably the biggest achievement to date.
What can we expect to see next for Klara Cosmetics?
Reset, the new step in skin prep. It is a new ground breaking gel innovation formulated to mimic an instant microdermabrasion in a bottle. Reset exfoliates your skin, unblocks pores and diminishes the appearance of fine lines instantly. It gives your skin a new surface that is radiant, smooth, renewed and ready for subsequent applications of makeup or skincare. It will be launching in May.
From your range what would be the products every makeup bag should have for day to day wear?
Klara Cosmetic CC Cream is great because it gives buildable coverage so a little more can be added going from day to a more formal night look. Kiss Proof Lips give your lips a glamorous night look in seconds. Try shade #05 Flaming Red for an instant red carpet look. Turn your natural day makeup into a night look by adding contour and definition to the eyes in a charcoal tone such as Klara Cosmetics Shimmer Eyeshadow in #3 Black Silk.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world (celebrity wise) who would it be and why?
Kim Kardashian. She is the style icon of the moment and I would love to hear her insights about beauty and fashion. She is also a successful business women and I enjoy talking to like- minded people and learning from their achievements.
