How did you first get into makeup?
I always had a passion for it since I was a child. My mom would buy me those makeup kits they sold in retail stores. It wasn't till after high school I discovered Youtube and from there my love for makeup extended.
How do you feel like your love for makeup has changed from when you first started?
I take it way more seriously. It's not only my passion but my full time job, Thank God. My entire time is spent on makeup and what I can do to improve my content for the people who have allowed me to have this platform.
Who is your number one makeup inspiration and why? Top influencers?
The first influencer who I will forever be grateful for and actually posted my photo on their platform was Alissa Ashley. She is someone I look up to even though I’m older lol. I just really admire her work ethic and dedication to her content.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now makeup-wise?
I want to be successful both on Youtube and Instagram, I want to be able to be financially stable by doing what I love to do and invest in hopefully a makeup line who knows!
What is one product you can’t live without and why?
Makeup Forever foundation stick. Sheesh! She is so good on my acne prone skin I don’t see myself looking elsewhere for a foundation.
What has been your biggest milestone/achievement when it comes to makeup?
Most definitely when I won Benefit's brow boot camp. In a sense it was a reminder that makeup is what I’m meant to be doing.
A message from Rocio:
That all skin types/tones are important, breaking the boundaries of beauty is important, and that there is a space for you here. Those are FACTS I hope people can realize.
