If you follow us on social, it's no secret that we have a major crush on Sandy Perez (@sandyyperez) - this makeup queen is so glam and so gifted! We seriously love all of the ways she uses Tattoo Junkee lip kits to create a vibe all her own.
We recently had the chance to sit down and chat with Sandy and want to share our fun Q&A sesh:
TJ: How did you get into makeup?
SP: My mom was actually a hair stylist and makeup artist. She would travel to peoples' homes and would make me go with her to help. To be honest, I hated it because she put me to work! But low key, I used to sneak and try on her makeup afterwards.
TJ: That's so funny! So when did you really start having fun with your look?
SP: I really started gettting into makeup in middle school. I loved experimenting with all different kinds of eye makeup; I loved bright colors. My favorite was actually blue!
TJ: How does your mom feel about all of the work you're doing with makeup now?
SP: She is so proud of me! She tells everyone, "I taught her!"
TJ: What do you like most about Tattoo Junkee lip paints?
SP: I love all of the colors! And I honestly love the product itself and was wearing it before I met the Tattoo Junkee team.
TJ: What's your favorite thing about makeup?
SP: I love getting to express myself creatively.
TJ: Where do you find your creative inspiration?
SP: I love looking at art and watching movies - the colors I see often inspire me. But sometimes I just stare at my makeup palettes and think about what I can create that day.
TJ: What's the one piece of advice you have for everyone out there? What words do you live by?
SP: Be yourself. I know everyone says that, but it's true. And I find that when you are truly yourself, people like that a lot more.
