Meet Miguel Lledo, our makeup artist and expert on all
things beauty for our most recent campaign shoot in NYC. Helping us out for a
quick but crazy two days we learnt loads! So we thought we should flick a few
questions his way so you can get to know him too.
How long have you been doing makeup for?
I have been doing makeup for approximately 8 years.
Where did you do your training?
To be honest I didn't have much formal training in makeup! My background in design & fine arts has allowed me to excel in makeup and understand balance, dimensions, and color. I think this has given me a different approach to makeup, as opposed to those who only have a background in makeup.
How long have you lived in NYC?
I've lived here in New York for four years.
Where do you get your inspo from?
I pulled my inspiration from everywhere. From movies to books to strangers on the sidewalk. Everything seemed to inspire me and grab my attention.
Favourite makeup products?
My favorites for skin prep are SK-II Brightening moisturizer and Estee Lauder advanced night repair oil. As far as make up goes I love Becca skin perfection, Cle de Peau concealer and foundation, Dolce and Gabbana lipsticks, long lash mascara from Laura Mercier, and corrector pencil from Shiseido.
Favourite makeup looks?
I really love 90's style makeup. The colours, the composition, and the energy.
Other jobs/campaigns/celebs you have worked on?
Some of my biggest campaigns I've worked on are Nike, Jill Stuart, Lexus, and Alexander Wang. As far as celebrities go, I've worked with Gigi Hadid, Teyana Taylor, Britney Spears, and Maddie Ziegler.
Some of your favourite things to do or see in NYC?
I love biking around the city, exploring new neighborhoods. Laying out at the Chelsea Pier with friends. Oh! And checking out a local flea market during the summer.
