Sara Jauregui is a sophomore art education major and visual communication design minor at St. Mary’s University. She is a freelance makeup artist and has worked as a beauty consultant. She is passionate about applying her creativity into anything she does and is inspired by other creators around her. She is invested in constantly learning new techniques and skills in the beauty industry in connection with other creative outlets such as photography and fashion.

Jauregui grew up in a small Mexican city on the border of South Texas and moved to the Rio Grande Valley in 2002 with her family. After graduating from high school, Jauregui was certain about continuing her educational journey in San Antonio as a Gates Millennium scholar. After multiple major changes in the humanities department, Jauregui decided to follow her passion – art.

Last summer, Jauregui was given the opportunity to work at an Italian makeup store, KIKO Milano, new to the U.S. at the only location in Texas. Here she was able to build her skills as a makeup artist and begin her career with a company she hopes to work with after graduation.

Jauregui plans to graduate from St. Mary’s in May 2019 and begin her professional career with large beauty industries around the world as well as attending graduate school in the future.
