Hello, Girls!

My name is Jaclyn Rivera. I am 22 years old and have been experimenting with make up for almost 5 years now. It has always been my passion but I have recently decided to pursue it as a career.

As a plus sized woman, I spent my teenage years trying to use make up to cover up my imperfections, but as I grow older I have learned to use it to enhance my already beautiful features . I see make up as a fun and glamorous accessory, not a mask to hide behind.

As a make up artist, I hope to use to use my skills to make women of all ages, shapes, and sizes feel beautiful and confident, and teach them how to use shades and shimmers to enhance their beautiful features so their inner beauty can shine.

I grew up in primarily in Louisiana. I graduated from high school in 2009 and started my college education in the fall.

2 years ago, I moved to Las Cruces, NM due to my father's job relocation and enrolled at New Mexico State University where I am studying to get my Bachelors degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing.

While I continue my studies at NMSU, I decided that there is room in my life for both my passions: writing and make up. Enrolling at QC Make Up Academy has given me a new excitement for the future career in make up artistry.
