Who Am I ?


June 2012

1: Who am I?

I am a vibrant lover of life who is continuously learning.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a makeup artist. I’m currently working on a gorgeous beauty shoot with looks from European shows. I was a child artist so painting came very easily to me. I transferred my passion from canvas to skin. I come from an artistic family that always supported my love for painting and drawing.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina, but grew up in New Jersey. Where am I going? I like to stay in the moment so I would say packing my bags for a job in Casa de Campo in the D.R.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

I have many but I would say family and close friends have always been there for me and continue to always come to my rescue.

5: What book is your bible?

Back to Eden by Jethro Kloss. This book is what made me a vegetarian and it has influenced my lifestyle greatly. It reprogrammed my way of thinking of what I put in my body and made me think healthily.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

Besides makeup, I love to travel. I plan to visit every country in the world. So far, I’m at thirty and lots more to go.

I love animals, I volunteer at a wildlife rehabilitation center and it’s so rewarding to nurse injured animals back to health. The third thing I can’t live without is ballet dancing. I am trained in classical but compete in American Rhythm.

I hate when people have too many excuses, how ridiculous the price of renting an apartment is here, and swiping my metro card and hearing the train pull away!

7: What is your raison d’être?

To love, give, share, be happy, and appreciate what life has given me. I love the fact that I’m doing something that I am passionate about and getting paid for it!

8: What is your favorite color?

Aquamarine blue makes me happy. Depends on what mood I am in.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Wonder Woman for sure; I like the stars on her outfit.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

I tend to go out in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a lot. That’s where I live. Hot spots are always changing. This week you might catch me at Bakeri for lunch or a new place I just discovered called Kinfolk. I don’t really do night clubs but these are places I would catch up with friends.

11: What turns you on?

I guess men and a great pair of shoes.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

What country would you like to have lunch in?

Deborah is a makeup artist working on beauty, fashion, and celebrity shoots.
