Today we’d like to introduce you to Jay Alarcon.
Jay, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my career in the Central Valley and have since lived/worked in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
I grew up an artist and through that avenue of art, I discovered the power of transformation through makeup artistry.
Throughout my journey, I have been fortunate enough to work amongst many incredibly creative people. I have worked hard and continue to work even harder so that my name remains reputable.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road to success, as many would agree, isn’t always an easy ride. However, I have found that so long as I stay focused and determined to be great that nothing can stand in my way.
Life will always throw challenges your way but it is 100% up to you to remain positive and keep your eye on the prize.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into JayArtistry story. Tell us more about the business.
I have been fortunate to have worked with some of the best photographers, fashion designers, and stylists. Some of my most recent achievements include: being cast in the makeup artist crew for the Jennifer Lopez ‘All I Have’ Residency in Las Vegas, working alongside celebrity makeup artist Etienne Ortega, and makeup for ad campaigns including: Artist Couture, Morphe, & Laura Lee.
Do you have any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general? What has worked well for you?
Remember that even when you think nobody is watching you, someone is.
