Country Singer- Jackie Arredondo

During the MFA event I had the opportunity to do the makeup for country singer Jackie Arredondo. I'm sure most of you have heard her hit single "Someone Like You."
Jackie  is also known for training famous singer Thalia and collaborating with Gloria Estefan, Julio Iglesias, Paulina Rubio, and many more. She was also the vocal instructor for popular spanish TV shows "Protagonistas de la Musica," "Protagonistas de Novela," and "Voces de America."

My Favorite Makeup Artists

A list of the makeup artists that have inspired me to do what I do. They are great at what they do and each have different techniques that work to create amazing results. 

The first Makeup Artist that I read and studied and LOVED was the one and Only Kevyn Aucoin.My first  Makeup book was his Making Faces, a must have for any makeup fanatic. I got the book when I was around 13 and I still try to read it and look through it every year. His book is not only a book that teaches about makeup, but it also has touching stories and life lessons within it's pages. Sadly, he passed away years ago, but his legacy continues with his books and his luxury makeup line.

Message to my readers

Hello Makeup Friends,

I know things have been slow around here lately, but being that I am almost 8 months pregnant I have been super busy with baby related stuff.
I see that a lot of you have been keeping busy going through my previous looks, and I know there is plenty there for you to try at home.
Nonetheless, I have some great ideas floating around my head.
Stay tuned for an inspiring photo shoot coming up soon. ( The theme is top secret so you will have to check back to find out.) I will also be doing a whole series of wearable fall looks with instructions for you to try at home.

As always, stay pretty and have fun with your makeup. :)
