Makeup Design by Francisco Valera

At the beginning of my career Franc walked into my studio and set down a portfolio that completely blew me away. It was then that our friendship began and together we built the foundation that flows through our work today.

That portfolio consisted of work featured in Harpers Bazaar, W, Vogue, ID, Elle, Marie Claire, and In Style. If that wasn't impressive enough the models in those photos included Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Giselle Bundchen and Linda Evangelista. His celebrity clients include Isabella Rosselini, Sandra Bullock, Connie Nielson, Kim Cattrall, Lara Flynn Boyle and many more.

I consider him an enormous part of my continued success. Although none of the photos you see here are mine, they are his work and you can continue to see what we've done together in the other portfolios on the site.

With salon experience at Oribe for Elizabeth Arden; leading teams of makeup artists at fashion shows for the likes of Badgley Mischka, Hugo Boss and Vera Wang and having taught over 3000 Aveda reps to a sold-out house at Radio City Music Hall while under contract with Aveda, Franc's recognition has become worldwide. He is now available for makeup consultations and more.
