"I have wanted to attended one of these workshops for awhile and I'm so glad I did! I know the basics of makeup but I don't use anything but foundation, eye makeup, and blush. I learned not only how to apply makeup, I learned about the tools themselves, different makeup and skin products and their uses, and so many tips that I realized how much fun I was missing out on. I left the workshop eager to go to the store and since the workshop I've purchased products I never thought I would use (or knew existed) as well as a good makeup mirror (with a light) and I've started putting my new skills to use. I feel like it makes a world of difference! 
Another takeaway was to slow down, appreciate your beauty for what it is, and take care of yourself in all aspects. I loved the presenter and the messages about well being that rang throughout. I left the workshop recommitting to taking care of myself in all aspects and I'm so grateful for it. Thank you LaTasha for sharing your talents with us too enhance our beauty." -Jamie Perry

Definitely book your next appointment here! You won't regret and then thank me with Starbucks later.. :) You're welcome!!"

"LaTasha was extremely amiable, professional, and most importantly, totally sensitive to the special situation for which I had booked an appointment. I had a private makeup lesson set up for my mother, who was experiencing a lot of self consciousness due to hyperpigmentation caused by her oral chemotherapy. LaTasha made her feel right at home in what had potential to be a touchy situation, and dealt with everything wonderfully. I will definitely be coming back to her for all my makeup needs!!" -Jordan B.

"All I can say is "AMAZING" LaTasha is professional, has ONLY the best makeup products, and very patient. She worked with me to find the perfect makeup look for my wedding. I am so happy and will call her again for all my makeup needs!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LaTasha! " -Christina T.

"I contracted Latasha for a Brand Makeover event for women entrepreneurs. One word: WOW!! Tasha enhanced their beauty and each woman had a phenomenal head shot. You can view the results on Instagram using the hashtag #DYOB15. Latasha is a phenomenal artist, so humble, and such a sweetheart. Book her SOLID! "​ -Dr. Shante
