Meet Celebrity, and Fashion Makeup Artist: Sophia Flores

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sophia Flores.

Sophia, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I grew up in Los Angeles, CA and was always inspired by fashion, music, and art. Originally I wanted to pursue a career in fashion but beauty always had my calling. I enrolled in Makeup Desinory in Burbank, CA and that gave me the stepping stone to pursue the industry. I started assisting top makeup artists in an MMA agency in LA and was sent out on top gigs. After I gained my skills and learned how to work with high profile clients. Soon I was sent out on jobs on my own and started creating beauty looks for top clients.

Has it been a smooth road?
You know the movie “Devil Wear’s Prada” – sometimes that was my life while I was assisting on A-list jobs.

So, what should we be on the lookout for, what’s next in store for you?
I plan on expanding my clientele internationally and traveling more often.

Let’s explore some of the challenges you’ve faced along the way. What was the most difficult part of your career so far?
The hardest part of my career was acknowledging that if I wanted to be successful it wasn’t just a job it’s a lifestyle. This involved working late nights, travel and still having to network at any time.

Are there days when you feel like you’ve done everything you wanted to, careerwise – the “I’ve made it” kind of moments?
A highlight of my career was when I just started to create my portfolio with Elias Tahan(Photographer) Bobby Eliot (Hairstylist) and Love Bailey (Stylist). We spent hours creating beautiful photoshoots with top actresses and models. We were living in a dream world and were having so much fun together.
