Vincent Oquendo’s artistic eye and magnetic personality has made him a highly sought-after makeup artist by many of the top names in the industry. 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.
Vincent finds inspiration in flora, particularly orchids, as well as the leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era. Those influences can be seen in the delicate yet inventive quality of his work.
Vincent’s thoughtful, referential approach to makeup has lead to him being regularly called upon by brands such as Stella McCartney, for whom he has collaborated with on several seasons, Nike, Marc Jacobs and Yigal Azrouël. He works with notable photographers such as Alexei Hay, Roe Etheridge, Marilyn Minter, Ben Watts, amongst others. His work has appeared in ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, L’Officiel, V Magazine and W.
