I teach correct and enhancing makeup techniques according to clients skin tone, facial shape, and facial features. I use the Seasonal Color Analysis approach to determine what skin tone the client is, either cool or warm. I have an extensive beauty field background. Early in my adulthood, I became a licensed cosmetologist in Minnesota. I have also been active as a Beauty Consultant almost all of my adult years with two different cosmetic companies. I love working with women and encouraging them to look and feel their very best, which boosts their self-esteem and self-confidence.

Today was our first lesson. Karen was on time and professional, and also very personable. She took the time to see what level each of my girls was at. I like that she teaches theory along with playing.

Wendy is a phenomenal instructor -- she is caring, attentive, detail-oriented... and funny! She takes great care in making sure she is completely understood and has answered all your questions. She is also extremely generous with her time -- it's more important to her that you get what you need out of the lesson than to be a slave to the clock. I highly recommend Wendy.
Sandy
I had a private makeup lesson & a Zoom meeting with Wendy recently. Wendy was very professional and patient and I learned a lot. I have never worn much makeup in my life so the lesson was awesome!
Andrea Beaulier-Reavis
Wendy is amazing. Super patient, knowledgeable and willing to work with me to make sure I had what I needed for the lesson and what worked for me personally. Definitely recommend her to everyone!! :-)

Let's k.i.s.s, keep it simple silly..I can help you. I want you to love the skin that you're in! As a Certified and Accredited instructor in skin care, I believe makeup should be natural. Less is always more. Makeup should only enhance the "You" in Be·You·tiful, not cover it up. Social media can
sometimes demonstrate drag queen techniques that's been used for centuries. Well,..if you don't want a look that dramatic come learn from a industry Pro and get in the industry know. You can look to gain confidence, knowledge, brush techniques, the proper makeup hygiene necessary, a full understanding of what you are doing and why, and the needed retention to go and do this all by yourself.

About Nikisha

Her approach to make-up is straightforward, less is more. With over 20 years of teaching experience to men, women and children, Nikisha brings confidence, knowledge and technique to all of her students. Her professional fun charisma assist them in just keeping it simple. Certified & Accredite

Nikisha is a great instructor and knows her stuff when it comes to makeup and skincare. I learned some new tips that I've been putting into practice which has elevated my makeup game! There were some scheduling conflicts which she cleared up quickly and was much appreciated. I definitely recommend reaching out to Nikisha for a makeup lesson if you haven't already!
Aisha
I had a good lesson with Nikisha, she is professional and friendly at the same time. I had most of my questions answered, she provided support before and after the lesson as well.
Kassandra Robinson
Nikisha provided makeup lessons to my 12 year old daughter once a week. She was very loving, kind, and patient with my daughter and flexible with our schedules. What I appreciate most is that she met my daughter on her skill level and then slowly built her up. Not only did she teach my daughter how to apply makeup, but she also taught her the importance of cleaning her face before and after applying makeup. My daughter enjoyed the lessons so much, I signed her up for additional lessons. I highly recommend Nikisha.

During each class I will not only help with makeup, but as a licensed esthetician I will help you with basic skin care needs so that we can prepare your skin for makeup. I step by step go through the process of your desired makeup look and have the results to ensure that it will be satisfactory. I am proficient at making sure you understand everything I am teaching.

A little background, I am a six year licensed esthetician and makeup artist. I first received my license after 900 hours of training for the state of Nevada. A few years into my journey I became a makeup instructor at the College of Southern Nevada DWED Program. I taught there for two and a half years and during that time I never had ratings below 80%.

About Katrina

Hello! My name is Katrina, I am a licensed esthetician and certified makeup artist of seven years. My goal as a teacher is to make people understand that makeup artistry is not only beautiful but fun, creative, and one of the most fun ways to express yourself! I have absolutely loved this craft sinc

Katrina is very knowledgeable and easy going. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and I’m looking forward to next week for our next lesson.
Cinnamon
I was really excited to learn the process of applying my makeup to improve my routine and knew Katrina would be able to help with that after following her work for some time. I didn’t expect to leave her class with so much more! She was professional, knew the products closely and really made this experience an amazing one for me. I booked a virtual makeup class consisting of two looks; where she was on time, very charismatic and made me feel at ease. We hit it off right away, and with in minutes, she was able to understand the looks I had in my mind and we made it come to life better than I could have ever imagined. During the class I took notes and was able to ask questions and I walked away with so many tips, product recommendations, and methods to apply my makeup better. I left with my face beat. SO obsessed with my makeup and received so many compliments. I would HIGHLY recommend Katrina. I can’t wait until the time she’s in town so I can book her in person to perform magic on my face again!
Jan
Katrina was great to work with. What I appreciated about her is she listened to me when I explained I just wanted a natural look and that's what she helped me to achieve. She explained and demonstrated everything and explained so well, even a novice like myself was able to do my own makeup. She took one step at a time as she demonstrated then watched me complete each step. She is skilled at her art but not intimidating. Thanks Katrina. Hope to get another class in with you soon.

Hi, I'm a freelance makeup artist proficient in bridal, everyday, and any other special occasion makeup look. I teach my students how to dress up their face for any occasion, apply false lashes, winged eyeliner and choose the right products for their skin tone and type. I also teach them how to conceal spots and achieve facial symmetry through contouring and highlighting. In addition, I teach my students the basics about product knowledge and how to make makeup last.
I'm available to answer questions about trendy and classic makeup looks as well :)

A self-taught makeup artist with 6+ years of experience. My experience covers everything from everyday "natural" and glam makeup, to SFX (or special effects) and theatre makeup. I have been practicing makeup on my own face since sophomore year of high school. I have also done other peoples' makeup for Halloween events, musicals, and plays. I am constantly doing research on makeup products to see how they perform as well as testing their performance on my own face. I can help to provide you with the best makeup tips and recommendations for your face and skin type. We can find what works best for you and what products are the most practical for your specific makeup needs. Whatever you need to learn about makeup, we can work together to provide you with the knowledge you are seeking.
