Caroline Creech

From the mid-1950s into the ‘60s, Caroline Creech lived a kind of double life. A woman ahead of her time, the hardworking young road warrior behind the wheel of her white Chevy Impala relished her career as a cosmetics representative for John Robert Powers, a prestigious brand in its day. On the job, she was known as Carol Desmond and enjoyed touting the virtues of eye shadows and face powders to high-end department stores up and down the East Coast. Sometimes she even travelled by helicopter to keep up with her demanding schedule. Offering impromptu makeovers to appreciative women shoppers was a favorite part of the job. Selling beauty products came naturally to Carol, and she was good at it.
