Takia, has been using her passion for make-up to enhance women’s natural beauty for over 5 years. Working as a high school student advocate and college History Instructor, her students would always compliment her on her daily make-up styles and began to ask if she would do their make up for their events. These humble and fun beginnings have flourished into a full-fledged make up artistry business, with clients scheduling Takia for weddings, graduations, proms, birthdays, fashion shows, and many other special events. Takia has taught classes on how to achieve a “Five Minute Natural Face” and has collaborated with local businesses to provide make-up services for special events. Her artistry has graced the pages of Essence Magazine, Changes Magazine, Beyond Curves Magazine, The Afro Newspaper in Baltimore, Fox 45 News, and Dr. Oz.

Pretty Mobile gives clients a spa like atmosphere on wheels allowing Takia to provide on-location make-up artistry services when a traditional venue is not available.
