After years of traveling around the West Coast as a professional makeup artist, aesthetician Monica Colomy noticed that many kinds of makeup clogged pores and weren't compatible with mature skin. Like many plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and geologists, she liked mineral makeup, but not necessarily the powdery mess that came with it. Inspired, she developed her own line, Monica’s Minerals. She put down roots in an airy salon in Sacramento and began to offer free makeup applications as well as makeup lessons to introduce customers to her easy-to-apply liquid foundation, blush, and lip care. To ensure that clients’ faces look beautiful even without makeup, she also polishes skin with a variety of custom peels, facials, and waxing services.
