About Me

Hello! Welcome to | pretty is my profession | the beauty blog for the beauty addicts and luxury lovers. 

I created this blog to share my passion and thoughts with the ever-growing beauty community. It has been an amazing journey getting to connect with like-minded individuals and being able to talk about my passion without judgement. 

While I enjoy high-end and luxury beauty, you will find a variety of beauty brands featured on here. From reviews to favorites, I strive to stay active in the beauty community and share my thoughts. Please feel free to make any suggestions or requests for reviews and content. I always disclose when I have been sent products in my reviews. 

A little bit about me... 

I am a former professional makeup artist, working on everything from bridal, to film, and TV. While I really enjoyed being a makeup artist, I desired a little more. I went to work in the beauty and fashion industry for a while and now, although I no longer work in the beauty industry, I will always consider it my profession. This blog is my way of sharing my experience and knowledge with my fellow beauty-lovers.

Hustle by day...Shop at night...

I am a part-time blogger with a full-time job and I do commit a lot of time and energy into this blog and my social media. Sometimes there will be long lulls without posts because I am quite busy and have other commitments, as well as, full-time job, so please bear with me. I write, photograph, and curate all the content on my own. I do not have any ghostwriters, a writing team, or any management team. This blog is 100% own and run by me, so you have a guarantee that all my thoughts and opinions are real and honest.

About me - beauty...

I am an Angelino at heart, having grown up in Los Angeles, but I currently live in beautiful San Diego! I love living by the beach and I love the vibe here.  Much of my makeup style is inspired by these two cities. The city chic, luxury vibe of LA and the beachy, laid-back vibe of SD; is me wrapped up in a little package.

My beauty philosophy is naturally enhancing and glowing beauty. While I love beauty trends and following them, I don't believe in combining all the trends simultaneously on my face. I love balancing trends and textures.

Skin tone - medium to tan (varies by season and sun exposure) 

Foundation color - anywhere from a MAC NC 30 -40, typically around NC30/35

Skin Type - Normal to dry 

Hair Type - Wavy, Color-Treated

Hair Color - Purple

Hair Length - Long

  1. Love your photos and love that you also work full time while having a successful beauty blog! I just started my beauty blog, begoldie.com, as a creative outlet for my beauty passion, and am inspired by sites like yours. :)

  2. Can you do dupes for high end makeup in which the colors and textures are comparable? And if it is cruelty and natural too would be excellent!

  3. Just found this blog and really appreciate your thorough reviews!
