Welcome! My name is Mai Thy and I blog here at Portrait of Mai about beauty/makeup.

This blog's focus is on providing:

  • Reviews and swatches of beauty products from indie and drugstore to mid-high end brands.
  • Makeup looks of the day
  • How-To Posts and DIY Beauty
  • Giveaways
  • Coverage of events in the Orange County/Los Angeles area.

I do NOT cover plastic surgery on the blog and am not interested in any pitches on plastic surgery.

If you'd like to ask me a question or see me try something out, feel free to email me at

I offer several opportunities for brands (like yours!) to showcase themselves on Portrait of Mai.

Services provided:

This is a PR-friendly blog so feel free to contact me if you're interested in having me swatch, review, and use your product. In addition to accepting products for honest review, I post press releases, host giveaways, and cover press events.

Receipt of product(s) does not guarantee a published review/post. All my reviews will be honest and as such, I do not guarantee a favorable review. I will always disclose which items have been received from brands and PR representatives.
