Karina Masters Work, Play & Faking 8 Hours



Meet Karina Dustin, GotBeauty.com supergirl, lover of nightlife, and the sweetest and fiercest football fanatic you could ever hope to meet. With her Sofia Loren good looks and her razor sharp wit, she is equal parts comedienne, rebel, and all around rock star. She’s an early-to-rise, late-to-bed type and the master of faking that ‘I got 8 hours look.’ We chatted her up to find out even more awesomeness, like how she keeps herself looking so brilliant despite her 6 am schedule, and which of the products she spends her days receiving for Got Beauty have really caught her eye.

You're considered to be a bit of a rock star around Got Beauty because of how much work you do every day. What is a typical day at the office for you?

I get into the office at 6:30 am and start off by reading my emails with a big cup of coffee. I then check to see if we need to place any orders, and I receive our web orders. We usually get new shipments around 11 am, which I receive, tag and take over to the store. Pay some bills. Put new items on the website. Fill web orders. When I'm all done with this it's about 2:30 and then it's home and right back out again with friends!

What is your favorite season? What’s your favorite fashion trend for this season?

I love Fall! The leaves changing, the smell in the air, it all just makes me want to cuddle up with some tea and a blanket on my porch.

My favorite fashion trend for this season would definitely have to be a layered look. I love a skirt with a nice top, blazer on top with a scarf, then tights and some boots.

What is your favorite way to watch football?

My favorite way to watch Football would have to be with a bunch of friends at our favorite pub. With something good to grub on. 

Who is your celebrity crush?

Ryan Gosling

How did you end up working at Got Beauty?

I was living in Salt Lake but working in Orem, and was looking for somewhere to work closer to home. My friend told me about this new Salon/Boutique that she started working at and told me I should go in and apply. When I walked in, I was hit with everything girly and beautiful, and I ended up applying for a job. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?


What’s your secret beauty trick for faking the “full 8 hours of sleep” look?

I recommend lots of water, a great moisturizer (love the Active Moist), NYX Propel My Eyes mascara, and Batiste Dry Shampoo. You'd be surprised how much of a difference they can make! 

What is your guilty pleasure?

Taco Bell.

Describe your perfect day off and what you would do.

My perfect day off would be waking up and having brunch with some friends, watching a game of football, and ending up with some good dinner in front of a fire pit.

You see everything before it hits the shelves at Got Beauty, what are your top three favorite beauty products?

1. Bumble Dry Spun Finish

2. Overnight Clearing Gel

3. Wet Brush 

Favorite TV show?

Oh my goodness, I have so many.  I love New Girl, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Girls, Modern Family. However if it is Football Season.....Sports Center :)

Name one item on your bucket list.

I've always wanted to go to Italy and live on a vineyard for a year.

What are you going to dress up as for Halloween this year?

The Cheshire Cat From Alice In Wonderland

Tell us something quirky and unexpected about you that no one knew before.

I'm extremely clumsy while also being extremely OCD. For example, I have to shut my car door twice before driving anywhere, and I usually trip when I get out.

Who do you look up to, and why?

Tammy Taylor Upwall, because she is the absolute best person to work for, as well as a great friend. I strive to be as creative and amazing as she is one day.
