At 21, Monica Cunanan is all about combining her two loves: beauty and science--proof that working hard and playing hard is what this generation of multi-hyphenates is all about. "I love learning and discovering innovative beauty products and I enjoy playing with makeup."
The BS Pharmacy keeps her passion for beauty alive with acting and modeling gigs, which she shares, "played a huge part in how I became really interested with beauty. The makeup artists I’ve worked with in the past taught me their unique tips, and my program taught me how I may be able to pursue cosmetology in the future wherein I can intertwine science and beauty."
Be sure to tune in Candy in 2020 as we give you a dose of Monica's aesthetic and beauty hacks. "I’m really excited with being able to connect with more people through sharing my interests online. I am very loud and makulit and I am also vocal when it comes to spreading positivity to everybody. As a Candy Rookie, I’m super stoked to create content that Candy readers will enjoy."
Monica is part of Candy Rookies 2020, a group of influential and aspirational college students handpicked to represent #GenerationCandy in the year to come.
