Make Up Artist of the Month for May 2022


Vanessa Funes, better known on the internet as @cutcreaser, started making makeup content on Instagram at just 15 years old. Today she has over 300 thousand followers and also makes popular TikTok videos of the process. She says she got into makeup as a form of therapy and pulls inspiration from various sources from movies to runway makeup styles.

Vanessa’s signature look is intricate and colorful eyeliner. She pairs these designs with simple and subtle face makeup, usually going for a neutral lip to really accentuate the art on her eyelids. She sees makeup as an escape as well as a personal life form and is grateful to do something that brings her so much joy could become her job.
