There is a growing need for self image brands and one company is solving that. STYLEBEE
Stylebee recognizes the rising need for glam. And we’re not talking glam for a gala. I mean CEO’s looking ready to roll for product releases, experts in their field for Ted Talks, or women AND men shooting web tutorials on sustainable impact investing. The stereotype of who needs make-up used to be reserved for celebrity, models, tv personalities and the rich socialites making their way to nearest open bar. Enter the NOW (2017) and Style Bee: The go to for CEO’s, entrepreneurs, and high level men and women proliferating into our social media lives, changing the way we do business and the way we live. And they know, their best foot forward starts with how they present themselves.
A quick few questions with Chantelle Hartshorne (because she’s busy AF)
How many years have you been doing make-up or in the industry?
How do you balance work and your healthy lifestyle?
"I work hard at making my life work for me. I answer emails at the gym on the machines, and take brainstorming calls on walks. If I have a meeting across town, I walk home."
What about the tech space do you see changing right now?
"Tech is getting smarter, I hate to be the person to say this but in the past a felt like there was a ton of super altruistic products funded for the sake of being funded. I feel that people are making smarter more functional human friendly tools. Everyday I meet entrepreneurs making amazing things that will truly push us forward, not to say that amazing things didn't come before now, I'm just saying that the ideas people are coming up with today tend to be so well designed, thorough, conscious and thought out."
How has politics affected your area of expertise?
"Politics are always complicated, especially being an immigrant and not knowing the system as well as my peers. What I can tell you is that if there was any hate coming through mainstream media towards any of my artists, you can bet your behind that there was extra love being send their way from the STYLEBEE team."
Do you consider yourself a woman in tech or simply in tech?
"I consider myself in tech. I feel very fortunate to be in a career where being a woman is an asset. In the makeup world it's the men that struggle to make a name for themselves. I've never felt what it's like to have my gender affect my career advancement and because of this I feel very strongly that other women should feel the same. The idea that fellow humans have felt restricted because of their sex is baffling to me. I truly hope to see this change in my lifetime. "
