Well it sure has been a while since I've posted. Don't think I haven't thought about you (however many of "you" are reading this), I've just been so incredibly busy I barely have time for me. I'm working 4 jobs, which means all I do is work.

To make due for all the time I've been gone I'm going to post a few entries with pictures of editorials I've done since I've been absent from the blogging world.

This was published in El Nuevo Dia as part of a "fall/winter makeup trends"article. I was asked to do a makeup look that translated into all holiday parties. Being the fan of color that I am, I didn't want to do just a red lip and a winged liner. Normal things bore me to no end. Instead I chose to do a gold/olive smokey eye with a bold purple lip. I mean, if you're going to say Hello to a new year, you might as well look good doing it!

Last May I did the cover and 2 editorials for Matte Mag's summer issue "Youth in Revolt" and "Wrap Around". I had so much fun on both editorials but of course my favorite was "Wrap Around". Why? Because I was given creative freedom, and any artist can tell you that is the best feeling in the world.

The concept behind the cover's editorial was just young people being wild and free, while looking very stylish, of course. The concept behind "Wrap Around" was basically that of a butterfly. She starts off all wrapped up as if she were a caterpillar, then slowly but surely she evolves into a beautiful creature. We shot this on the roof of a 3-story building at noon. This poor girl was burning up but you never would have known it, she took it like a champ and worked the camera.

 Last fall I did the cover and editorial of Magacin. I had the pleasure of working with Zoila Algarín, a model who I always dreamt of making up ever since I first saw her. The look for this was very dramatic, very much like the models in Robert Palmer's now iconic video "Addicted to Love".

Zoila has incredible skin to begin with so I didn't really need to use many products. To take this look from 80s to the new century I used a Senna Cosmetics' Tinted Moisturizer and Liquid Ice for that glowing and dewy finish.

I have done many other things this past year but I can't upload them all here. I welcome you to visit my page on Facebook where I have all my recent and past work. Thank you for sticking around after all this time, I appreciate your support.

Thanks for reading.
