How long have you been doing make-up?
I’ve been doing make-up for about 3 years now.
How did you become the vlogging, cosmetic guru that you are today?
Well in one bright day I just decided to open my own YouTube channel. Actually my gorgeous girlfriend Anna was talking about me becoming a beauty blogger for a few years, so one day I decided to agree with her claims and open my own beauty blog ♥.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
