About Me

Hello!

I was born and raised in Mexico. I have been a professional makeup artist and hair designer for more than 13 years now. It all started as a hobby, my sister and I have always loved anything and everything beauty and fashion related. After my dad suggested and helped us establish our own business, we opened our beauty salon in Monterrey in 2002, called blush beauty inc. with an amazing team of experts that keeps doing stunning work to this day. Both my sister and I left Mexico, and my mom became the salon manager. I believe that you never stop learning so I am always looking for opportunities to grow. I Worked for MAC cosmetics in Bogota, Colombia for almost 2 years until I came to live to Dubai, which is where I am currently located. I am very passionate about what I do. I think inspiration can be found anywhere and everywhere. I have been fortunate enough to learn first-hand from some of the best in the industry, Vidal Sassoon Academy UK, former creative director for VS Tim Hartley, top celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes and Val Garland (Val Garland School of Makeup for Mastered) to name a few. Of course, my favorite way to learn and get inspired is through every individual I do makeup on. I always have a conversation with the person before I begin; this is when I get deeply inspired. My belief is inner and outer beauty walk hand in hand, so this is my main focus, which ultimately reflects in my art.
