Steph is well traveled and loves adventure. Since her early childhood years, Stephanie always loved color. "I would say my favorite color was "Rainbow" because I couldn't pick just one. My love for cosmetics started when I was around 13 years old. I would always watch my older sister do her make up," explains Vazquez. "Make Up always made me feel better behind my thick glasses and blemishes. When it really comes down to it, I do make up to make women feel good."
As a Make Up Artist, Vazquez says she feels it's instinctual in her to see beauty in everyone and in every self expression. She strives to be a positive influence in the world and she does this best through make up. Steph felt that there was a need for a different kind of Make Up School in the world today. Her mission with Beauty Schooled is to eliminate the intimidation of doing yourself or someone else’s make up and strives to make Make Up Application approachable for everyone. She started Beauty Schooled in 2018 hoping to change the Beauty Industry forever.
