Mykie

Mykie

Mykie is a self-taught beauty and special effects makeup artist, professional goofball, & previous FACE Awards winner with a combined audience of over 3 million followers (or as she calls them, "zombaes"!) She believes makeup is for having fun—which can mean enhancing ones' natural beauty or bringing the creepiest creature to life. Mykie was destined for youtube shenanigans after developing a deep passion for glam & gore makeup as a kid and graduating film school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She moved to LA to pursue her love for film and makeup, presumably behind the camera, but quickly found herself in front of it. The zombaes embraced her silly personality, and the rest is history. Mykie is totally not writing this in the third person, but if she were, she'd probably say being a judge for the FACE awards is one of the most rewarding and unexpected full-circles she's ever had. She'd also tell you to avoid green glitter, but that's a story for another time.
