Hey I’m Isabel!

I’m originally from Miami but currently Orlando Florida. I am very passionate and crazy, I’m a Wifey and mom of a 1 1/2 year old. I’m an dancer and makeup-artist. I love to incorporarte things through my everyday through my art. I been a makeup artist for 5 years. I’m far from where I want to be but I’m loving exploring who I am as an artist everyday when I am creating these looks! I hope to use this platform to be a light and to inspire young girls and women to be confident and to find tools to help them see the beauty and greatness within. I love this and when I am creating I feel so alive!


Q: How long have you been a Makeup Artist and what made you want to get into the industry?
A: I’ve been a makeup artist for 5 years , I’ve always been an artist … but I really wanted to help people and just help build their confidence. Even when I worked in the counter you never know how much you brighten someone’s day just by being kind or painting on a new shade of lipstick. I wanted to put imagination through my work to inspire people.


Q: Do you showcase your work on Instagram and Facebook? What are your accounts so we can check you out.
A: Yes both IG @izzywonderland &

FACEBOOK @izzywonderlandmua
Q: What do you like most about the industry?
A: I love that there are so many different platforms, there is so many different kind of artist. Even though I have seen it grow so much it has created so many opportunities to share this art and connect people all around the world. It makes people feel connected in a whole new way.


Q: What inspires you and brings you creativity when trying out a new look.
A: I never plan my looks , I try to use anything that inspired me through the day or the week whether it’s through a movie, or mabey movies or when I go to my favorite place (Disney ) 😂😍 there is so much beauty in everything we see you just have to find it💖


Q: What do you think is the biggest misconception in the beauty industry?
A: I feel that everyone has different artistry. I feel like sometimes people get caught in the hype like your not poppin if you don’t have so many followers, I know many artist who are amazing that might not show there artistry as well on camera than in person. I also feel like people misconstrue what they see online sometimes. You can take and learn from each artist or not. Do what works for you but don’t judge someone for what they feel works for them. At the end of the day we all started from somewhere.
Q: You Instagram page is very colorful and vibrant, what draws you to these colors?

A: Well i grew up in Miami , i was exposed to a lot of music and art mostly influenced by my Cuban culture. I was drawn to Disney movies, Lisa Frank, Hello Kitty, Britto. I feel like colors show different emotions and it makes you feel something. Vibrant colors to me are passion and courage and boldness.
Q: If you can only use one brand of makeup, what would it be? Okay, you can pick 3.

A: I LOVE Too Faced!!!! If I could choose 2 more MAC ❤ and Chanel ❤❤❤
Q: What is the best way to contact you if we need your makeup skills?

A: I put my email for contact info but I usually prefer to get a Dm📩 on my IG.

MUA of the Month 

Hey guys!! 
So excited to feature my first MUA of the Month for February!! I started featuring MUA’s on Instagram in 2015 because I love the talent, skill and creativity that is put into their work. The transformations are incredible and inspiring. The creativity and design is exciting. The energy of their passion is motivating. 

I feature MUA’s beautiful talent on my blog once a day and multiple times a day on my Instagram but I wanted to do something a little bigger. I wanted to search for an MUA and help expose his or her talent with a feature each month. 

I’m so excited that I found one this month to represent my first feature. She is extremely talented and gorgeous!! 

I can’t wait for you guys to see her feature and her work. 

Stay tuned for the feature!! Make sure you apply for March. Instructions will follow. 


3 Tips To Build Your Instagram Followers

Hi Peaches! 
I constantly get questions about my Instagram page and how I built a large following of over a million followers in less than a year. I decided to list a few tips on the topic. 

1. Be Engaged with your followers. As a follower, we don’t want to ask a question and be ignored or give your point of view with no response. Reply back to your followers, thank them for their love and support and take the time to like their comment or return a follow. As you increase in followers, it will become difficult to respond to everyone or keep up with all the comments but your followers will appreciate it when you do respond. You can also write in your caption a question that you propose to your following to get more feedback.
2. Collaborate!! Find other accounts that are similar to yours or related in some way and work together to build each other’s pages. You can do shoutouts for each other with same following count. If you’re a creator, then do a collaboration post where you’re both in it and your followers will follow her and vice versa. 
3. Be Consistent! This is the key in everything in life. Think of a reasonable and ideal amount of times you will post each week and stick to it. Your followers will begin the expect a reliable schedule of posting from your account. Going weeks at a time without posting will not engage and keep your followers around long. Your followers are waiting for your new content because they are your fan. It’s okay to take some time off every once in awhile but make sure to get back to a set schedule. 

Let me know what questions you guys have about Instagram and building engagement and followers.

SiliSponge Thoughts? 

I’m sure everyone by now has seen the SiliSponge or the Silicone beauty blender but who has tried it? And what are your thoughts?

I have had the opportunity to try it from a variety of manufacturers as well as variations of it. I see the potential in it that it doesn’t soak up all the foundation or primer but not sure about the application of it. I felt it was awkward when using it but I may not be used to it and still adore my traditional Beauty Blender. The verdict isn’t out yet but I want to hear your experience with the SiliSponge or Silicone Beauty Blender.
