What got you involved in the makeup industry?
I went to an art school for college and worked in the summer in Ibiza at a huge nightclub called Privilege. I was a member of a performance group called ” Los Monstruos de Ibiza” and worked as a performer covered in body paint.
That was my first contact with make-up, applying it to myself and my coworkers for the show. My boss at the time told me that I was good enough to go to school for it, so in 1997 I enrolled in the Makeup Forever School in Barcelona and attended for 3 years. I graduated in 2000 and have been a professional makeup artist ever since.
Which shades of lipstick are trending for S/S 2015?
Minimal makeup and dark red wine colors on lips are going to be popular. A very natural nude lip color like my Micro Nude or Micro Mandarin, made specially for redheads with a touch of peach.
Natural colors for the daytime, burgundy and red for night. That’s the way to do it in 2015.
How many shades of lipstick are in your collection?
I have 8 different shades of color for 2015.
One red (the most amazing vibrant red), one amazing burgundy and my star of the show : Micro Nude (the one used in Britney Spears’ Piece of Me Show) and can also be used on men. The line also includes Grace and Micro Tickled Pink (two shades of pink: one bright and one very light), Micro Mocha (the perfect nude for African American women and men), Micro Mandarin (the perfect nude-peach) and Micro Glaze ( a red with a touch of gold).
All 8 colors can be applied to all types of skin. All of them are FDA approved, hypo-allergenic, and all contain 50% lip balm to make your lips moist all day.
How frequently are your collections produced?
We are in constant production contemplating our next step. Currently we are working on our first line for men. We are also launching more shades of lipstick in the next months. If you ask for it, we will make it for you. 🙂
