Victor Del Castillo started his career in makeup inspired by the talented artists that worked for him when he was the Editor of several major entertainment magazines in Mexico City... After 10 years of watching people transforming regular people into astonishing "super stars" it just felt natural to grab a brush and start doing it himself.
He moved to the U.S. in 2002 to keep learning and perfecting his art and soon got a contract with MAC Cosmetics where he got the skills and inspiration to keep growing as a professional makeup artist. As part of the MAC-PRO team, Victor has worked the most important Hollywood red carpets and award shows such as the MTV's, VMA's, BET's and the Grammy's, and attended countless workshops and master-classes on editorial, bridal, ethnic, period makeup, Bollywood makeup, High-Definition, airbrush, character makeup, special efects and body painting.
He has worked in many fashion shows for LA Fashion Week, Ed Hardy, SMET, Ernte, Sue Wong and Carioca Swimwear, and being published in magazines like Corduroy, AVN, Paper and TV Notas. He has been Key Makeup Artist for beauty pageants like Miss Latina USA and for plays like South Pacific and Grease, and a frequent guest makeup consultant for the TV show "Despierta San Diego".
Two times nominated Best Makeup Artist at the AVN Awards 2009 and 2011 for his accomplishments in video, he has worked also in television at KRCA ESTRELLA TV for the shows "Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento", "A Que No Puedes", "El Show de Lagrimita y Costel", "Duetos", "Estudio 2", "Estrellitas del Sabado" and “Mi Sueno es Bailar” (Spanish version of “Dancing with the Stars”); for Nikelodeum’s “Hollywood Hights”, and for Paramount Pictures’ “GLEE”. Next year his work will be seem also in the motion picture “The Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire”.
