JLo Was My inspiration For This Wet Makeup Look

Many of you know that I am now the Senior Artist at Sephora in Connecticut. With this position I spend more time with the cast coaching to them, doing certification, teaching beauty classes and getting the cast ready for elevated position. So I don’t often do makeup everyday. As a die hard makeup artist, sometimes I miss my brushes.

Alyssa Perez a nail tech from Florida came in to get her makeup done by me. I was so elated when I saw how pretty she was. I knew she would make for a perfect canvas. What made it sweet was that Alyssa told me that I could do whatever I wanted. Now this is the type of client I’m use to. At Sephora it’s the opposite.

That was my inspiration that I wanted to recreate because Alyssa had the features and personality to pull of that look. I knew that her features would be able to handle all of what I was going to do. I started pulling products and lashes that I wanted to use. That’s the great thing about doing makeup at Sephora. Any thing I need when I’m creating a look I have it right in my hands. It’s like having my own personal makeup studio when I’m working. I showed Alyssa a variety of ways to wear the look, starting with matte to a full out South Beach glow.
