Los Angeles Night Owl Henry Vasquez disrupts the makeup industry.

Long before he had ever stepped behind the MAC makeup counter, L.A. native Henry Vasquez had started incubating the ideal brand for his emerging makeup empire. But in order for his brand to adequately represent its founder it would have to be incredibly unique: embodying the grit of Henry’s Los Angeles background with the glamor and tremendous sex appeal of the Hollywood lifestyle he had created for himself. But Henry Vasquez is just too much Henry to only be Henry and so he had birthed Hank, his alter ego. Hank is the artist, allowing Henry to remain a person – and a pretty awesome one at that (just ask any of his adoring fans, which he has affectionately dubbed “The Night Owls.”).

Henry says it best, “Hank and Henry… two sides to the same coin. Hank the art, Henry the heart. I hope to show you two different facets of who I am as a person, and as an artist. My main goal is to create, educate, and hopefully make you laugh. ;)”

Having spent almost a decade working in the industry, behind the counter and then teaching, Henry is no stranger to the makeup world. His own Hank and Henry line is only a year old and has already become one of the most popular products for his fellow influencers.

But there’s so much more to Henry Vasquez than a face covered in a beautiful palette of makeup.

Not only does Henry open his mind to the creative genius of Hank, but also opens his heart and discusses the personal trials and tribulations he has experienced. He generally doesn’t hold back as evidenced in his most recent and very personal post about his mother seen below.

One day mother you will be sober and back in my life. We have to speak our wishes into existence. No mater how many times life doesn’t go your way SPEAK YOUR WISHES INTO EXISTENCE. I woke up a little embarrassed today bc I was really emotional yesterday bc of my mom while I was at a beauty event. I was hoping and am still hoping to get her into rehab but it didn’t go my way yesterday. It has to be her to make that choice. Don’t ever be afraid to cry or to let out your frustrations. We all have those days. Thank you to the @nyxcosmetics and @lolocat for being a shoulder to cry on when I needed it. ❤️❤️❤️ I hope you all know that if you are having a bad day never be afraid to express it. It’s not easy having to be the one who is strong for everyone all the time and I know so many people that have to play that role for their families. Don’t keep that shit in AND DONT FORGET TO SPEAK YOUR TRUTH INTO THE UNIVERSE.

*I found this pic in my phone and it got me triggered and super emotional* This a picture of me 2 years after I first moved to LA…. so like 4 years ago( I was trying soooo hard to look happy). I came to LA thinking I was just gonna tear it up. The day I took this picture I had $50 in my pocket, was 3 months late on my car payment(which eventually got repossessed), went through my entire savings, and was living out of my car or friends couches. The instability of a freelance artist was something I never knew when I moved out here bc I always had a full time job and did makeup on my days off… yet i quit my job and took a chance. A lot of struggles came after this, both financially and mentally, but I realized they ALL HAD TO HAPPEN!!!! They made me stronger, wiser, and kinder. Never forget that regardless of your situation that it’s never permanent if you don’t allow it to be. Keep those that SHOW you they love you close. Never give up. Never let the struggles of life bring you down. Much love!!!

Posting this always feel a lil embarrassing but I know it’s important to share. So I’ve talked about how I got out of a bad relationship 3 years ago, right around the time time I got my business partners to start my brand. Even though my career was going up I was still emotionally fucked up bc I couldn’t believe I allowed myself to be in such a toxic relationship. I wound up gaining 45/50 lbs and was up to 215/220lbs. Once I got out of that hole I was in, I realized I needed to make some changes and I started to hit the gym and lost about 35lbs(the picture you see on the left). I was doing a lot of cardio and eating healthy, bc I know nothing about lifting weights. I decided to get a personal trainer and with @justinyovinomd got body sculpting/lipo. I wanted a kick start to my 2018 and this was it. I even went live on Facebook for the procedure. I did NOT get this for free, and I did NOT get paid. I wanted to share this because it wasn’t until I was happy in my heart and mind that I ok’d myself to get any work done including my veneers,Botox, and lipo. Don’t ever feel afraid or guilty for doin what makes you happy, but also remember your happiness inside is what is most important. Now that I have started with @mrkmai as my trainer we really about to FUCKING KILLLLLL IT!!!! ?. ❤️ SIDE NOTE: I can not wait to get my chest tattoo finished. Ugh.
