Carmen Ottens started blogging as a way to showcase her work as a makeup artist, but quickly developed a passion for sharing her style as well. Interestingly enough, Carmen’s blog is now primarily fashion-centered and includes less makeup features than she initially intended.


However, this hasn’t stopped Carmen from giving a unique, personal voice to the blog that she started a mere nine months ago. Originally a native of Peru, Ottens now lives in Orem, Utah.

I think my blog represents me, it’s quite girly, but always with a bit of an edge.

When looking to add to her personal style collection, she frequents stores such as Forever 21, Nordstrom, and vintage boutiques. Her style is a balance of girly and edgy, and she loves rocking black as much as she loves adding bursts of color to her wardrobe in the spring.


We fell in love with Carmen immediately! Her eye for beauty and fashion is one that inspires us each day! Please visit Make Up By Cottens to see more from her closet & make up bag!
