Frederick Faces: Rebecca Carrera

“I’m not a person who believes you need a million beauty products, but I sure love having a million beauty products!” Rebecca Carrera, owner of Maven Beauty Bar, says her passion for beauty products started as a child and lasted through her career in the corporate cosmetic world. She spent six years as a cosmetic buyer for Nordstrom, followed by nine years with global beauty brands Shiseido and Yves Saint Laurent.

After her corporate career, Rebecca knew that Downtown Frederick was the perfect place to fulfill her dream of opening a beauty boutique. “I knew when my husband and I moved here in 2001 that I wanted to open a shop downtown. It has a little bit of that city/Georgetown feel, but with small town friendliness,” said Carerra, a Silver Spring native. Her second-floor beauty boutique, Maven Beauty Bar, opened just two months ago at 7 E Patrick St.

What’s this beauty maven’s make-up mantra? “I’m a pro at the ‘no-make-up’ make-up look,” says Rebecca, “just because a woman doesn't wear a lot of make-up doesn't mean they can’t look polished like a pro with minimal effort.”
