To me, being beautiful is just accepting myself. I feel beautiful when I'm wearing makeup; I feel beautiful when I'm not wearing makeup.

Everyone grows at their own pace, and you shouldn't compare yourself to anyone.

I always thought makeup was a beautiful thing, the transformation of it. If someone felt insecure about something, they could put on concealer, and it would change their entire day.

I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in my early 20s, so I never realized that makeup 'wasn't for boys,' as many social norms say.

I'm a member of the LGBTQ community, and I feel like we need more representation. In the makeup world, especially, it's always been really, really hard for men in beauty to kind of be seen in a way beyond being a 'fad.'

Myy mom is the woman who inspires me the most. She's Latina. She's definitely my Latina inspiration.

Looks aren't everything, obviously, but there really is something to putting on a full face of makeup and really feeling the glam!

I want to act. That'd be so much fun.

I feel like men in beauty have to work a lot harder just to get credibility, because it's such a women's world.

I was so interested in makeup, but I was pressured to follow what my family and friends wanted me to do.

I love using blotting paper when people are oily in the T-zone.

I feel like lip balm is something that you need to have. The worst thing ever is having dry lips.

As a child, I would watch my mom get ready for work and just sit there for hours watching her transform. However, it wasn't until much later on that I really started to dabble in makeup myself.

When I was a young boy, I would watch my mom apply her makeup, so one day, I took a lipstick she had and put it on my mouth, trying to imitate her. It ended up all over my face.

Beauty can grow as a whole, since you shouldn't copy other people.

I think that the social media space is great because that's where my bread and butter is, but I want to jump into doing traditional media and other fun things.

It was hard to get my name out there, but luckily, I have an awesome following who would not stay silent and helped me get to where I wanted to be.

Brands started approaching me once I had 800,000 YouTube subscribers. Some girls were getting offers with only 300,000.

I did have pushback in the beginning of my career because my parents weren't really sure what I was going to do with my life going in the route of makeup. I was planning on medical school, so when I threw the makeup wrench at them, they were not expecting that.

I want to become successful and represent a different form of beauty in my generation.
