A local makeup artist is combining her love for makeup and mojitos to give local ladies a fun night in while learning new makeup techniques from an expert.
Tequana Colvin loves helping women look and feel their best. “We truly believe that every women should know the basics of beauty for herself,” she says. “In reality, no one can afford to hire an artist everyday, [so] having the skill to maintain your everyday appearance-enhancing skills is important.”
That’s why Colvin founded FLAWless Face Makeup Artistry (FFMUA) two years ago after a decade of experience. “[I have been] practicing and studying the art and cosmetic trends for 10 years,” she says. “After years of being pushed and encouraged by friends and family members, I decided to pursue the craft on a larger scale.”
Since then, Colvin has been building her brand through a broad array of events. “FFMUA has participated in a vast amount of makeup-focused work including fashion shows, special events and many weddings,” she says. “We [have also] worked with the Cincinnati Black Theater on stage productions.”
While Colvin is based here in the Tri-State, she’s following opportunities from coast to coast. “FFMUA has traveled from Cincinnati, to LA, to New York City, and proudly participated in Couture Fashion Week 2015 in New York City,” she explains.
FLAWless Face Makeup Artistry started out giving instruction, lessons and DIY info to the everyday woman, and has given a series of classes on different aspects of cosmetic application. The newest addition to FFMUA’s offerings is the Makeup & Mojitos Party.
“The Makeup & Mojitos Party is a fun way to spice up a ladies night in. It [gives] you a reason to celebrate with your close friends, family, or co-workers while learning beauty [tips] in the privacy of your own environment,” she says. “FFMUA comes out to your home or office to teach a beauty lesson. The guests provide pot-luck style refreshments and mojitos and Flawless Face brings the [expertise]. Collectively you have Makeup & Mojitos!”
The Makeup & Mojitos Party is entirely customizable and can be thrown for a variety of groups and prices. “[Clients] can choose from a Two Topic Learning Session, a Basic Beauty Session, or a Full Face Beauty Lesson,” she explains. The parties all specialize in different focuses ranging from contouring and highlighting to brow enhancement and eyeshadow placement.
Colvin emphasizes the importance of bonding opportunities such as Makeup & Mojitos, and says, “The uniqueness about this party is the reason it gives ladies an opportunity to bond. It’s a beauty-focused gathering and regardless of ones’ walk of life, this is something any woman would enjoy doing,” she says. “This party allows individuals that may never normally [spend time] together to celebrate [through] their shared interest in enhancing their own personal beauty routine.”
Colvin says the makeup lessons are applicable to all age ranges, as she tailors each lesson to reflect age-appropriate techniques. To learn more, “like” FFMUA on Facebook. To book a Makeup & Mojitos party, call Colvin at (513) 213-2309.
