As a child, in my native Veracruz, Mexico, I would watch my mother in the privacy of her bedroom, as she sat at the front of her vanity mirror, place a small towel on her lap and a white headband to hold back her hair. Taking a sip of water, she would continue to light a small glass candle, getting ready to begin her daily beauty routine. It was like watching a small intimate ritual… a beauty ritual. This was my first encounter with beauty and cosmetics, it was a great inspiration in my life.
From that point forward, I considered beauty to be an expression that came from a very private place from within ourselves, an extension of who we really are. Makeup is a great friend, used to show the world in some way how beautiful we are and how good we feel about ourselves!
At a very young age, Audrey attended Llongueras Hair Coiffure Academy in Barcelona, Spain. She continued her studies in cosmetology at Jean D’Estrées Beauty Institute graduating in Paris, France. She later acquired her hair and makeup (cosmetology) licensing trough Paul Mitchell the Schools in the United States of America.
“I do not work with makeup or cosmetics… I work with people. I work with faces and different types of beauty, styles and personalities. Makeup, brushes, and cosmetics are just some of my wonderful tools.”
“Beauty is… How our own perception harmonizes with the perfect pattern of the universe, 1:1.618.”
“I look towards the outside for new and refreshed inspiration, and inside for everlasting strength.”
“I want to express my gratitude to all the wonderful people that believe in me and have helped me to continue on this amazing and creative journey.”
