About Monica



I'm a 27 year old from Brooklyn, New York. Currently in school studying Criminal Justice. My true passions are the justice field, forensics, psychology, and it should really go without saying…makeup. All of those make me extremely happy.

Just so you know, I'm not a professional makeup artist. I'm one of those girls who's learned all she knows from YouTube, beauty blogs, and straight up practice. I would love to actually take cosmetology classes, and I see that in my near future. To be honest, I actually kind of have a fear of being a real makeup artist. The idea of someone's whole look being in my hands kind of scares me, but I'm sure with more experience and learning I'll get myself right out of that little rut.

For the past few years I've always watched YouTube gurus and wondered if I would ever get the courage to do a haul or a review or an eye look. I'd ask myself "Could I REALLY do this?". It took me a long LONG time to say "Well, you might as well try it out!". And here I am, trying it out. It isn't my own channel with 20,000 views per video, but it's a blog where I'm able to merge two of my loves into one: writing and makeup. My little outlet for my intense and sometimes ridiculous makeup obsession =).
