My love for makeup started at a young age, powdering myself with my mother's vintage powder puff and going round and round with her few lipstick shades she rarely wore. My Auntie Norma, whose love for fashion and makeup, only added fuel to the fire. Every shopping trip always included a stroll through the tantalizing cosmetic department maze, always wanting it all, and leaving with at least a lipgloss.
My growing love for this beauty medium turned into a career in the cosmetic and beauty industry. I've loved learning and growing as an artist with Sephora, MAC, and Blush Beauty Bar in Portland, OR.
Now, returning back to San Diego, I want to share my talent with you and making you look and feel your best for every occasion. I have now also started writing for Miss A as a Beauty Columnist, if you have any beauty questions answered email me directly.--They may soon be featured on askmissa.com!

I HIGHLY recommend Monica for your makeup needs! I had the pleasure of having Monica do my makeup for my engagement pictures and wedding day. Each time I looked exactly how I envisioned and it showed in the pictures! On the day of the wedding, Monica did my mom and 3 bridesmaids, all of who loved their makeup and everyone looked beautiful! She is very talented and is able to re-create a look you show her in a picture. I am so thankful I found Monica and that she was able to do my makeup for the most important day of my life!Sent on 06/05/2014

Monica Garcia Makeup Artistry is fantastic! Monica did a wonderful job on my makeup for my wedding day! The makeup was just enough to make me stand out and feel special, but not so much that I feel like it was caked on. I received tons of compliments from my wedding guests. Also, Monica is wonderful to work with. She doesn't try to up-sell (one of my pet peeves) and she listens to & responds to what you'd like. It was wonderful to have her as part of my wedding day, as she has very calm & lovely presence. I was very happy with how she did my makeup as a brown-skinned woman (many makeup artists I looked up had no images of makeup done on brown-skinned women or it looked inappropriate). I definitely recommend her for your makeup needs!Sent on 06/29/2014

Monica is a ROCKSTAR! I had my makeup trial run with her today, and I was knocked off my feet with what an amazing job she did. I had VERY high expectations for the way I wanted my make up to look... and by my surprise she exceeded these expectations! Also she was very nice and fun to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone I know.... She even put lashes on at my trial run for no extra cost! Also, very professional & had a great invoice, which I find some vendors do not.Sent on 03/08/2013
