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%.

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!

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.

I recently had an online makeup lesson with Wendy. She went over and above for our lesson. She contacted me prior to the lesson to go over my existing makeup. She asked for a photo of me. She made many suggestions for products that would work well for me and I love every one of them! This in itself was a great value as I get makeup home all the time and don't like it! She also really cared that I was well prepared for our lesson as far as lighting and mirror arrangement. That way the lesson flowed easily. She was very patient and had me apply a full face of makeup. She emphasized proper use of brushes, sponges, blending, bringing your colors together and little tricks, of course. She did not stop until we were done. I am so glad I took the lesson, should have done it years ago! She loves what she does and it shows!

I wanted to leave a review to let any potential students know that Wendy is a wonderful teacher!

I am 44 and didn’t get into makeup until this age, and now walking into a makeup store seems a bit overwhelming. I would think, ‘I don’t want to go through all the expensive trial and errors of make brands/colors, so what the heck do I get?!?’

A few days before my classes with Wendy started, she called me. She wanted to see what, if any, makeup I had to work with. She wanted photos of me for eye color and skin tone so she could recommend shades to get for our first lesson. ***I can’t even begin to tell you what a gift it was to have an already made list with colors and brands to go buy***—and that wasn’t apart of our first class. That was a pre-meeting that Wendy does to prepare her students for the lesson. She wants to maximize all the time you paid for so she believes in having this pre-meeting so you can dive in and use the makeup right away.

I learned so much from Wendy, and recorded our classes so I could practice and keep her guidance.

She had as much fun as I did during our classes and I could tell she has a passion for teaching a craft she knows very well.

If you are here for education—Just sign up already! 🙂 You won’t regret it.
Kathryn
I’m 74 and have never learned a makeup technique that flattered me. Wendy has taught me the techniques to emphasize my eyes and eyebrows. The methods of applying foundation have made all the difference in the world and the tricks of contouring have made a huge improvement in my appearance. Thanks a million Wendy!

"Let me start this off by saying Wendy is incredible!!!! A true artist! I went to her for a makeup lesson, somethibg ive wanted to do for awhile but was unsure of where to go. I found Wendy online and am so grateful i did. She was so thorough, took her time and went thru everything with me. She went thru the makeup and tools i bought with me and told me what was helping me and what i should think twice about :) She then applied my makeup step by step and carefully explained exactly what she was doing and what products she was using. Now i had her apply my makeuo but if you would rather be the one to apply your own makeup while she advises, that can be done too. Shes very flexible as to how you want your lesson to go. She gave me so many helpful hints and advice. Shes so nice too...she makes you feel good about yourself. She pays attention to every detail of your face and is so patient....she answered every question I had and at no time made me feel rushed. The environment was also very calming , relaxing and full of fantastic light! I couldnt have asked for a better experience....it was the best! If youre looking for someone who can bring your beauty out, Wendy is the way to go!!"
