Nikisha did a fabulous job with training my daughter (beginner) on how to apply make up. More importantly, she provided information so that she can understand the reason she used a make up product. Both my daughter & I are Very Satisfied! I highly recommend you to use her service!

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!!

What can I say, that I miss Ms. Nikisha so much!!! She is one of the most kindest, humble, caring person I have met. She is honest and truly loves what she does! She has thought me so much from skincare, makeup application, nutrition and pose techniques, ect. She takes her time to help us understand how important all these things are within the entertainment industry. One of the best instructors!!!

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.
