behind the beauty
When did you know you wanted to work in beauty?
When I was modeling in Miami, I never really liked the way my makeup was done, so I decided to learn how to do my own. That’s when I developed my passion for beauty and decided to become a makeup artist.
What’s your go-to look?
I focus on creating radiant, healthy-looking skin, then I keep the rest of the look simple. Find a bronzer that complements your skin tone, a lipstick you love, lots of mascara, a brow, and that’s all you need.
What made you want to work for Bobbi Brown?
Bobbi Brown makeup has been in my kit since the early stages of my career. It was one of the first inclusive brand representative of women of different shades and cultures. As a Latina, that’s the kind of brand I want to partner with and be a part of.
What’s one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
I used to make cheesecakes and sell them to restaurants in Miami. I make a mean guava cheesecake.
If you weren’t in the beauty industry, what would you be doing?
I would love to have a holistic center in nature where I could help people heal.
