Conversations with the Inspiring Jay Alarcon

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.
