As a Sephora PRO Artist for eight years, Hector Espinal has traveled the world representing the retailer at the highest level of artistry, supporting campaigns, education, and events. As a proud Dominican and native New Yorker, Hector believes in the powerful sensuality of makeup and infuses his urban and Latino heritage into a glamorous makeup vision, both on and off the runway. His work has been featured in top publications across the U.S. and Latin America, including Vogue, Rolling Stone, and GRAZIA.

Celebrated for his keen eye, relentless passion, and unmistakable ability to highlight models’ natural beauty in unique ways, Hector was selected out of hundreds of artists by Rihanna to join the Fenty Beauty Global Artistry Team. Since then, he has been instrumental in the brand’s industry-shaking launch and growth, developing education tools to personally train thousands of Sephora makeup artists worldwide, playing a critical role in selecting Fenty Beauty’s boundary-breaking array of 50 foundation shades, and of course, creating iconic looks for Rihanna on the red carpet and beyond.
