Beauty Editor at Large
Vincent Oquendo’s artistic eye and magnetic personality have made him a highly sought-after makeup artist. Vincent credits his passion for beauty and makeup to his mother. After honing his talent, he assisted makeup artist Pat McGrath, which paved the way for his career. He finds inspiration in flora, particularly orchids, as well as the leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era. His thoughtful, referential approach to makeup has lead him to collaborate with brands including Stella McCartney, Nike, Marc Jacobs, and Yigal Azrouël, and work with notable photographers such as Alexei Hay, Roe Etheridge, Marilyn Minter, and Ben Watts, amongst others. Vincent’s work has appeared in ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, L’Officiel, V Magazine, and W.
