Im the happiest when I can collaborate on artistic collaborations with my queer brown amigas 💖✨ I photographed @allaboutvalentina over a year ago and have been waiting patiently to finally show my peers this beauty. A year has gone by and Vogue Mexico debuted the first image from this set. Here are the rest...

My idea of beauty was inspired by the women I grew up with. In my teens, I discovered the work of Kevyn Aucoin and I became obsessed. I studied the books whenever I’d get a chance to go to the bookstore. I was also inspired by the work on some my idols, and some artists include @francescatolot @kristoferbuckle @billybmakeup @itstroyjensen. I was lucky enough to meet a couple artists that I consider great friends early on in my career. @samuelpaulmakeup taught me everything to know about the industry and encouraged me to keep getting better and work harder and smarter. Thank you. @iamsamfine inspired my interest in working with deeper complexions, I loved the way he painted all the black celebrities and I wanted to pursue a similar path.

When I first started doing makeup, Instagram wasn’t a thing. Artists worked on their books testing with photographers and put in hours assisting other Makeup artists. I wanted this career so badly and I remember the feeling of wanting something so badly that it made me want to cry. I put in the work at the beginning and tested with so many photographers, I probably have three hard drives full of photos. Half of those images are probably mine, as I started out as a photographer initially and would shoot my own work. It was great to have a knowledge in photography as it allowed me to develop my book when I didn’t have one. Now I’m lucky to work with some of the best photographers, but my portfolio is in serious need of updating. I’m posting this here to remind myself to work on it and build, but also see how far I’ve come.
