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!

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.

Nikisha was kind enough to accommodate me and my friend in one class. We had a 2 hour session, and it was filled with useful information, especially considering the fact that both of us had absolutely no idea about using makeup.

Nikisha was very professional, patient and nice all at the same time. She went over everything I needed to know and learn slowly and even went over the time limit just to make sure I was ok with the lesson. I’m so glad I found her and would definitely recommend and come again.

My daughter and I are very happy and pleased with the class my daughter had today with Nikisha. The knowledge and skill that she uses to teach teens how to properly take care of their skin on top of how to properly apply makeup the correct way and not going over the top is wonderful. She helped my daughter feel more confident in her technique when applying makeup. She answered all questions that my daughter asked. Nikisha was very professional and I appreciate her craft and time today just simply amazing!!

Nike is an amazing teacher who knows her craft. What’s even better is that she explains her technique and the reason why certain products work better based on the individual. She is professional and incredibly approachable with any questions you may have. Kudos to her!

Ms. Nike is one of the best teachers and even Mentors I have ever had, she does not just stick to a curriculum on paper really makes you think and makes you question everything, I have learned so much from her just from her breaking down subjects into much greater depth, things you would have never have thought of that can help you make better/wiser decisions. Ms. Nike is someone you will learn something new from everytime you are around her, and she just knows how to breathe positivity and energy into others.
