The Global Makeup Ambassador for Shiseido poured out on everything from how jealous I can be to me, along with the 90s trends, we can expect a comeback this fall.
Before officially starting a look, Oquendo has the same place most of us use for inspiration. “I use Pinterest a lot because there is everything in the universe. From nature photos, landscape photos, iconic Hollywood stars, you can find just a little of everything and you can reference them with just a touch, ”he explains.

“You can find amazing 70s photos, classic photos of the Cat Woman you never thought to find, Sophia Loren photos from different backgrounds, National Geographic photos and just put them all together for a mood board and match it,” he teaches.
Once defined, the makeup artist says his clients trust his vision and allow him creative freedom. “They are all in the mood for fun. They say, "You're the artist, create". I'm very lucky because so many of my clients are like you're the boss. Do it. "

Before applying any product, Oquendo focuses on preparing the skin to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. I will use one Shiseido Leaf Mask or yours Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrated Serum and massage the skin with Georgia Louise Cryo Freezing Tools, Gold carving bar by Jillian Dempsey and NuFace devices, depending on the various levels of hydration my clients need. "
After that, the skin is ready and Oquendo is ready to apply foundation and concealer. "Whenever I work with my famous clients, I make sure their skin is perfected, but you can still see the pores… It must be just the skin of the best day and look 'envious of my skin', which is skin bright, beautiful and glassy …. My favorite skin is when it looks like it's the skin itself and you can't see I've worked so hard with it. "

To fix this natural look, he uses Syncro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation by Shiseido and liquid Paper. "There's a shade for everyone and it has an SPF 30, so it's almost like a protective glove on the skin. It has built-in primers that prolong wear. I've seen clients who went to the after party and then to the after party and, then your face is a little worn and the concealer needs to touch up. These products almost redefine, so it's like a touch up on a bottle, "he teaches.
90's fashion trends that are still important today
While Oquendo swears by the motto, "Fresh skin is always present," there are other looks from the past that he hopes to experience this fall. "I feel like we're seeing so many things from the 90s that were so terrible, they were amazing. I'm feeling a metallic lip. I've been thinking a lot about it – it hasn't been the right fit yet, but I'd love to see it. I've also done tons of white eyeliner and I made it to Janelle Monae to Chanel which was really cool I am also in the hardcore lip line I've been doing this a few times here and there but I haven't gotten to the point where I got too involved with that but maybe ", he says.
