MUA Spotlight On: Jazmine Kaleo

Hey, my dears ♥! I’m coming at you with another talented makeup artist named Jazmine! Unlike many of the makeup artists featured here on Fashenty, Jazmine didn’t find makeup. Makeup found her. As a young mother, Jazmine was working at Sprint and kicking ass. She was one of the top sellers and was known for it in the Bay Area. One day, she was approached in the mall by a MAC employee who invited her to work for MAC. While Jazmine did like makeup, she didn’t know much about it. However, the employee insisted that she’d get training through MAC. Jazmine went on to work for MAC and became a one of the top sellers there, as well! Now, she a certified makeup artist and has been working for MAC Cosmetics for 2 years.

What is your absolute pet peeve when it comes to other people’s makeup?

What irks me the most and I don’t know if it’s because we’re Latina, but when people overline their lips. It just looks so unnatural.

Share a beauty tip/trick/hack.. whatever you’d like to call it. Lol

When applying foundation or concealer, spray MAC Fix + after. It makes your makeup look more natural and less cakey. It also makes your makeup stay on a little longer.
