INTERVIEW: Meet Trey & Noel


Noel, how did you discover your talent for makeup/design?

I've always drawn since I was a little kid which made me interested in makeup. 

Where are you from/where did you grow up?

Trey: I am from Caldwell Idaho and was raised there my whole life. 

Noel: I'm from La Puente, CA.

Any creative people that inspire you?

Trey: I am inspired by random individuals who aren't afraid to be their original self.

Noel: Bjoirk, Die Anterwoord


What do you think is unique about the artist community in LA? 

Noel: It's very different compared to the New York scene because LA is a lot more random. 

Trey: You can see all of the collaboration between artists and I think it's cool that people are working together. 

What do you like or dislike about the queer community in LA?

Trey: You can really see how supportive it is, which is very new to me. 

How would you describe your personal style?

Noel: Modern gay-goth-Mexican

Trey: It's a mixture of messy, vintage, grungy and at times put together. I take a lot of inspiration from every day people and from past icons. 


Is there a decade you vibe with aesthetically? 

Trey: The past few years I've been in love with 70's and early 80's clothing.

Any style icons you're obsessed with? 

Noel: Mugler, Alexander Mcqueen, Marilyn Manson.

Trey: Courtney Love, Prince, Alexander Mcqueen and anyone who is dressed like they don't care. 

Noel: Not inspired by decades but inspired by mythology. 

Favorite color?

Trey: It has always been red.

Noel: Red. 


If you could liken yourself to a cartoon character, who?

What is one important fact you want the world to know about you?

Trey: I am working on becoming more fearless so I may express myself better, but mostly trying to show my perspective. 

Noel: Iā€™m just working on improving myself.

Noel: Jessica Rabbit as a boy
