Where are you from?
Born in Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico. Moved to the states in 2000 and have been in California ever since.

What influenced your decision to do makeup?
Initially my love for makeup came from my obsession to do Special FX. I helped my friends in High School make gory looks, and when I realized a career could be made from it, I enrolled into my 12 month program and learned everything from the basics to where we are in the industry today.

What are you doing when you’re not behind the chair?
Usually snuggling with my pets thinking about getting more pets, and curating the new @dogsoffolklore instagram! (Naturally). Also watching weird documentaries and tutorials… probably at the same time.

What can we look forward to seeing from you in the future?
More published editorial work, hopefully some bridal looks and most definitely more Special FX (and fingers crossed more pets…).

How do you take your coffee?
For best results: soy milk and a bit of sugar, otherwise I’ll take half & half.
