Where do you find inspiration for your makeup looks?
I never really look for inspiration; it just comes to me when I do my makeup without thinking. I love makeup and art – for me it’s something that just feels innate.
What is your best beauty secret?
I have a lot! I feel like all of the tricks that are popular on Instagram now are things I discovered a long time ago. When I was in school, I would use a matte grey-brown eye shadow to enhance the fullness of my hairline and people laughed at me. But today, a lot of girls are doing it!
What is something that your followers don’t know about you?
There’s a lot that people don’t know about me! I lived with my grandfather when I was younger and he raised me. Also, before I became a makeup artist, I went to school for fashion design and sculpture.
How do you spend your free time?
I spend my free time with my little daughter Neyra and with my best friend, my husband, Vladimir. It’s never boring with them! We love traveling together or even just sitting on the couch and watching a good movie. I love spending time with my family, sisters and grandpa.
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I’d like to be able to transport to any part of the world, whenever I want!
What advice do you have for someone who wants to start working in the beauty world?
Never give up on your dreams, and don’t listen to the naysayers. Believe in yourself!
What are your top 3 Sigma brushes or products?
This is a difficult question because I love all Sigma products, especially brushes! I also love the Brow Powder and Highlight Duos – they are a must-have!
