About Beauty

Playing with textures, finishes, pigments, gadgets, crystals.. allows me to really understand how products interact with the skin, how colours work, how volumes work on each face, and gives me control over the results when I work for skincare and make-up brands, even if it's a no-makeup-makeup look.

That would be the practical part, the other part is to keep creating, characters, stories, images, the joy of creating beautiful things and sharing them without conditioning, just for the fun of it

Making Of with Cara

I think I could make a very interesting film with just my videos and backstage photos. Here's where the most interesting thing happens;)

Dior

There are shows and shows and then there's DIOR. I've been able to work on Team Peter Philips for over 6 seasons, and even on an advertising campaign for one of the Cruise Collection. And I have to say that it's playing in another league. I have a long relationship with the brand, Dior Beauty Spain has sponsored me for more than 10 years, and I feel very close to them. But the ways of accessing the shows are different and have nothing to do with each other.
That's why the first confirmation I received from Peter's booker to work in his team in Seville made me cry, I'm like that. And all the ones that have followed have always been great experiences that I cherish.

Milan Fashion Week

The Milan shows have something special for me, maybe because it was the first fashion week I worked at, or maybe the city, the atmosphere during the shows. I'd even say it's less stressful than Paris, as "less" stressful as ten days working on shows can be. She was one of my models for Sportmax, the atmosphere backstage that day was very special.

Makeup-artist Coach and Mentor

I have created the perfect manual, the guide and the instructions to follow in order to become a professional make-up artist and make a good living at it. As hard as it is to escape the culture and discourse of 'starving artists', I develop an online course that contains all the strategy, methodology and mindset any make-up artist or creative need to achieve your goals and dreams GLOW UP!

The Creative Process

Nobody ever tells you how to have ideas, how to work on them, how to stay inspired, or where to get information, resources, ideas, how to turn concepts into images... how to create, in short. I have always been very interested in this because I think it is a fundamental part of our work, to be creative. I have spent a great deal of time researching other processes, other professionals and analysing my own and that's how BEAUTY BOOT CAMP came about, my first face-to-face workshop for make-up artists in which I broke down the creative process, a theoretical and practical process, where each of the participants learn to create a beauty story with a common thread, and make it real. They went from inspiration to creation. My research is ongoing and that is why in Glow up, my online course, I have included a live and growing section, where make-up artists and other professionals share their creative processes, analysing and breaking down how they work their ideas and concepts, and turn them into new looks and new realities.

Haute Couture Paris FW

Working at the Haute Couture shows if you are a fashion freak is one dream come true, and doing it in Lucy Bridge's make-up team is another.
This was a brutal show, in every sense, the location, the light, the ways in which V&R created these pieces of art, and the make-up that Lucy designed, the endless sharp eyeliner and beautiful skin, it was a pleasure to be part of this!

How to Glow

Understanding the language of the skin, it's my how. How to read a skin, and know what ingredients to add, what textures and tones, with the right tools, in the right order, and skip the completely unnecessary steps.

Raw vs. Colourful

I declare myself a lover of both a "apparently" raw skin and the more colorful beauty story. Both have their difficulties, and both have the same point in common and absolutely necessary: The total mastery of the preparation of the skin, without the knowledge and application of the correct and adequate skin care, there are no results, or most probably not the desired ones.

Workshop: Skin the Wow Effect!

I love teaching and sharing.

The last edition in Madrid of my Workshop: "Skin the wow Effect!", although among the participants there were several pharmacists, a chemical engineer, facialists and make-up artists from very different niches. I have to admit that it was a nerve-wracking experience, but the results were so good that there were further editions in Barcelona and Valencia. Our link was the skin and getting the best out of it, and making it look its best. Learning to read the skin in all its extensions, colours, treatments, cosmetics, formulations, mixes, ingredients, compatibility...
As a make-up artist for fashion and advertising, it is essential to know how to make up any type of skin with any type of alteration,color or texture, to understand the skin you have in front of you, in order to be able to give it exactly the result you want, without hesitation: is a must.

How to Set Beauty Trends

Where trends come from, how they are created, how a concept is transformed into textures, colors and shapes, will be the subject of my next talk.
