Beautycon Casting Winner! At Milk Makeup, we’re always on the lookout for individuality, creativity, and self-expression. That’s why, for our first ever appearance at Beautycon NY, we decided to hold a live casting for the next big names in beauty — right in the middle of the festival. We were totally blown away and ended up finding 5 attendees to feature, and we’ll be rolling them out on milkmakeup.com all week long. Stay tuned for more from these amazing up-and-comers — we’re sure you’ll be seeing them around…
“I was kind of scared to do the casting! I’m so used to my brother, Juan Veloz, being my photographer, so letting someone else take control freaked me out! But I was so excited when I saw the photos.
I will say, I love to beat my mug — but I love to make it look like I didn’t try, if you know what I mean. I hope my look says I’m confident and I love the skin I’m in without having to say a word! Live Your Look, to me, means to fully embrace whatever your look means to you — regardless of what the world thinks.
One thing I want to do that I haven’t done yet is that I want to see myself on Univision or Telemundo so that other Afro Latinas can see that we are represented in the media! My favorite thing about myself is that I’m fearless and I don’t take no for an answer. I remember someone asking me, ‘What are the chances that Youtube can make you successful?’ At that moment I realized I can’t let other people’s fears stop me from achieving my dream!”
