This is me...@taomkadiija burst of sunshine on any given day! Lol Jk! But I truly like to live my life care free...I would describe myself as Mod Hippie, if that makes sense 🤔. Here's some facts about me! 1) I love the sun! Going to the beach, the park, or just anywhere that I can enjoy the sun is my favorite past time. . 2) So....let's talk numbers ...I lost a ton of weight over the course of 2 years with steady exercise and minor adjustments to my diet. Most don't believe that's me on the left, hell...neither do I... but I'm proud of my progress! #ashytoclassy 3) Something most don't know, I became a mom at a young age, so as you can imagine, there's been some hardships..however, my kids mean the world to me and I couldn't imagine my life without them. Can't wait to send them off for the summer though lol 😂😂 . 4) I am a Music Connoisseur. If you've ever come to the studio and realize how bomb the playlist is, it's because of ME! I love putting a playlist together. In my mind I'm a DJ and I can cater to any crowd! #jcole & #chancetherapper are easily two of my favorite rappers. I'm #bardigang and #sativa is currently my favorite song on repeat 🎶🎶 5) Next 3 photos represent the variety of eyeshadow looks I do 😂😂. Yeah...I love this spotlight look so it's always the go to... . 6) I am multi-talented... true to my Virgo sign...Although Makeup Artistry has been the most consistent career path I've done to date, I've held many other positions that I have a passion for...I was once a teacher to kindergarten kids, I used to dance and coach for a local dance & cheer team, And a few more business ventures that I'll save for the book lol P.S. - those who haven't yet, go to our insta-stories, vote on who you think is the bossy one between @taomasia and I!! Thanks for reading! 💕💕
About me...@taomasia bare with me, this is a long read 😊 (SWIPE to follow the narrative) 1) this book title describes me and my life to a "T". Not #girlboss, (well, not until recently)...the other one... #awkwardblackgirl ...yep! That's me for as long as I've known myself... awkward to start conversation, awkward in large crowds of people, just plan ol awkward. But, I love it. Being awkward allows me to be me at all times without forcefully trying to fit in. I'm a home body and watch tons of movies and TV shows with #bae between work and business of course. 2) I'm an Artist, always have been. Rather than spending my childhood outside playing, I spent mine inside drawing, being an author, the usual stuff us Virgos tend to gravitate to. So getting into makeup was bound to happen, I love creating things... Fun fact, I'm also a graphic designer, so any promotional flyers, business cards, and even our website. I did it😜! 3) I still work a full time job, going on 14 years in January😩😩. Literally #nodaysoff 4) I love YouTube so much 5 years ago I created a Fb page dedicated to all the "gurus". I haven't touched it in years, goal of 2018, get it back up and running. I could've made a killing by now. Oh, go ahead and just follow @thegurusyt thanks lol 5) Because of YouTube, I learned to do Makeup, tend to my natural hair, and stumbled into learning to make wigs. It's one of my favorite things to do! 6) Ok, so I really only started to make wigs because I needed them 😩. 2007 I was diagnosed with Lupus and it's not the best for my natural hair. So wigs it is. 🤷🏾♀️p.s. I have hair now, it has grown back, but I still just wear wigs. 7) Next 3 photos are examples of me and the only lip color I wear. Red. Red. Red. And nope I'm not ashamed of it 😊 8) lastly, most people who know me on social media before they meet me always tell me how they thought I was tall! Well I'm about 4'11, short and stout lol, I've been this size since middle

Blue skies and the ocean 🌊. Wanted to add some color into my makeup looks lately. In the meantime, current foundation obsession is @nipandfab. Give me great makeup that doesn’t break the bank and I’ll be a die hard fan for life. For my UK followers these are available @superdrugloves.
