On Monday, R&B goddess and reality star Monica breezed by ESSENCE’s office to chat about her hot new album, “Still Standing.” She was absolutely charming, a true sweetheart….and ladies, her eyeshadow was fierce! “Miss Thang” was rocking expertly-blended gold, bronze and copper shadows that looked flawless with her nutmeg-brown skin.
