Stephanie Fernandez was 14 and bored, she says, when she first picked up a makeup brush. Now, four years later, the college student is wowing the Internet with the amazing transformations she creates using just drugstore makeup and whatever else she has on hand that inspires her. “Sometimes it takes me seconds to think of an idea, sometimes it takes me months,” said Fernandez, 18, of Shreveport, La. “I use whatever materials I have around me at that moment to portray a visualization of an emotion, thought, or dream that is occurring in my mind.” Fernandez is completely self-taught and does everything her portraits entail, from the makeup to the photography, modeling and editing. “Depending on the makeup concept and its complexity, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 5 hours,” Fernandez said.
