Hello! I am Izamar Rosas Vazquez (IZ-uh-marr ROH-sahs VAZ-kayz,) but most people just call me Izzy. I’m a 23-year-old bilingual (English and Spanish) beauty and lifestyle blogger, along with being an avid makeup fanatic! The idea of this blog, what I personally like to call a “home” for all of my creative ideas, came to mind a few years back after living and growing up between two unique countries.

I was born in Maltrata, a little town in the green mountains of Mexico. At the age of nine I was brought to Minnesota, USA where I stayed until I was fifteen. At that pivotal time in my teens I returned to Mexico for about two years. This is when I began to discover myself and unlock my passion for the beauty industry, art, fashion, photography and adventure.

After my return to the United States, I threw myself into my passions and took as many opportunities as possible, including taking classes at Minnesota School of Cosmetology offered through my High School. After graduating from high school, I continued my education by getting a certificate of Esthetics in 2014 from St. Paul Community and Technical College. I then became a beauty adviser at a makeup retail store before deciding to pursue my passions even further! In 2015 I graduated from Makeup Designory LA, CA where I studied character and Special FX makeup. After returning to Minnesota in 2015, I joined “The Mortuary” makeup artist team at Valleyfair (also known as Valleyscare) during the Halloween season.

All of these experiences have lead me to creating this blog, which serves as a “home” for all my passions. I’m a happy bilingual blogger, and I hope to offer more creativity in the near future to both cultures.

 

I have a great time with my life and I want to share it! I want to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be lay-ed. Smile to the world. “ – Will Smith
