Monica E. High-Augburn
Beauty Expert, MakeUp Artist, and Beauty Blogger Monica High developed creative skills naturally due to her parents, Cheryl and Marlo as they are both artistically inclined. As a kid, Monica was always extremely interested in Art. Additionally, Monica developed another love as a child, and that was MakeUp. Every summer and on holidays Monica would visit her grandmother Doe, where she became a little Diva. Playing in lipstick and eye shadow was exciting and fun to her. At 17, Monica did hair every day after school and makeup for others on occasions. MakeUp artistry became the career she desired.
In 2004 Monica and her loving Husband was blessed with their first child. As such she put her dream of being a Makeup Artist aside for what she felt was a more realistic career. Monica worked for Montgomery County Government for 5 years until she was blessed with her 2nd Child. Thereafter she realized that her passion for Beauty/MakeUp was stronger than her fear of failure.
Monica is now proud to say she is a professional Freelance MakeUp Artist. facesbyMONI is her makeup artistry name. Monica provides beauty enhancing services for the Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia area. “I don’t believe make-up defines you, however I do believe just a touch of it will boost your confidence and have you feeling a certain sense of SEXY. We all know that when you looking fabulous you feel fabulous!” says Monica.
In addition to MakeUp artistry, she also developed a Beauty Blog called Beauty as Moni knows it. Monica’s “Beauties” as she calls her readers, email her asking beauty related questions and she answers them via her Beauty blog. On May 21, 2010, Bloggers.com reviewed Monica’s blog and made it EDITORS pick of the day, which gave her blog exposure all over the world. Expert of Beauty, formally known as BEAUTY AS MONI KNOW’S IT, now has readers from Africa, UK, Sweden, Poland and Russia – just to name a few. There are beauty tips, advice and product reviews on her Beauty Blog as well.
Monica is currently expanding her knowledge of beauty to much bigger goals such as a MakeUp Cosmetic Line.
