Today we’d like to introduce you to Easmine Monroy.
Easmine, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles and always had a huge appreciation for the arts. One of my favorite things to do as a kid was going through magazines like Vogue and admire the editorial makeup looks. Makeup artistry started out as a hobby at first for me.
Throughout my first few years in college, I would do makeup for my friends and family members just for fun. Eventually, my passion for makeup grew stronger, and I found myself happiest when applying makeup on someone else, and letting my creativity show through my work. I’ve been doing makeup professionally now for the last 3 years.
It hasn’t been easy, but I’ve grown so much as an artist, business owner, and individual in such a short amount of time. So far in my career, I’ve been able to work on the set of magazine shoots and music videos. But most importantly I’ve created amazing friendships with my clients and other artists.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I’m a makeup artist that loves to focus on clean and glowing skin. I love enhancing my client or model’s already beautiful features. My main goal as an artist is to make whoever is in my chair feel confident, strong, and beautiful/handsome. Even though I do have a style of makeup that I like to go for, I’m always willing to try out new techniques or bold and different looks. I feel that the only way to grow as an artist is to keep pushing your creativity and always being open to learning new things.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
Personally, I think it’s difficult to decide at what point you’re “successful”. On a day to day basis, I find success in a happy client, or in creating a beautiful makeup look. My ultimate goal in my career is to launch my own cosmetics line. I guess that’s the point where I feel like I’ve reached success as an artist. In order to reach my goals, I think I need to continue to be open-minded, hardworking, creative, and brave.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I’m currently working on a website, but I’m always active on Instagram. You can support my work by following me and liking or commenting on pictures of my work. Another way to support my work is on YouTube!
I’ve recently started a YouTube channel and I’m hoping to grow my business through that platform as well. Also, you can refer me to anyone who is looking for a makeup artist or one on one makeup lessons.
