His passion for an entrepreneurial idea combined with his vast knowledge in cosmetics made way for his much-awaited destination. The dream of having his own brand took birth in 2016. He embarked on the wholesale distribution of cosmetic products through an eCommerce website.
Carla Esposito is one of the most valued fashion photographers in the industry. While indulging in the space of aesthetics and beauty, she has been accoladed as an eclectic photographer. Her works have also been appraised and published in the magazine ‘Vogue’. In 2017, she realized that she could bring her passion into action when she met Maurizio Pastore and heard about Mu Makeup.
Consequently, she created the Mu MakeUp eCommerce website with WordPress and it is her passion for makeup and cosmetics that keeps her going.
Since then, the brand has yielded recognition by serving 2,535 variants of products to over 2 million satisfied customers all over the world!
