How did you get your start in the business?
Doing commercials and working for a modeling agency in Venezuela.

What is your creative influence?
Everyday life, nature, sounds, colors, texture, personalities, clients’ personal style, event occasions, moods, etc.

Who is your beauty icon?
Rachel Welch and Sophia Loren. However, class is always class and Catherine Denueve is superb!

What works on every woman?
The right amount of eyeliner and mascara with a touch of lip color always works.

What is your best tip?
After applying any foundation (mineral/cream compact/liquid/dual finish), take a clean tissue and pat the skin to blot excess. Then finish setting it with a mineral powder bronzer for a healthy glow.
