Roberto is a makeup artist based in New York City with over a decade of experience working on photo shoots, live shows, TV, commercials, red carpet, films, fashion and corporate videos. His work has been featured in domestic and international markets.
Originally from Puerto Rico, he left home at the age of 21 and began doing makeup at a high-end spa on Fifth Avenue a year after.
Always keeping in mind his clients’ needs, Roberto’s laid-back demeanor in front of the makeup chair allows him to maximize his time -with brush in hand- while making sure no details are overlooked. As an accomplished artist seasoned in production protocol, he approaches every job with the same level of professionalism to ensure everyone’s high standards have been met, including his.
When he is not working, Roberto enjoys reading, writing, catching up with friends and colleagues, traveling and, as an epicurean, he loves discovering new restaurants and indulging in wine tasting.
