LaTasha Y Benn is an independent make-up artist whose clients range from brides, models, actors, singers, to writers. If asked, she will tell you that she absolutely loves what she does - portraying external and internal beauty through color and confidence!
LaTasha started doing make-up professionally in 2007 after being inspired by her cousin and a photographer during a photo shoot in Atlanta, GA. Since then she has branded herself as an independent make-up artist known as LYBartistry.
LYBartistry started as a hobby, where LaTasha would do make-up for friends and family at a very low cost, charging for only gas and food at times, and even free for some. Overtime, the idea of doing make-up as a fulltime career became appealing and exciting for her.
After about a year of doing make-up here and there and simply for fun, LaTasha attended a make-up workshop conducted by a successful make-up artist, Candace Corey – celebrity make-up artist from Chicago. This workshop taught the basic techniques of make-up application and business practices – how to market yourself, how to find work, websites, and how to present yourself while working. This workshop put LaTasha in the mindset of starting a business officially.
From 2008 thru 2010, LaTasha was working as a make-up artist as a part-time job while working full-time as a Corporate Recruiter. During the weekends, painting faces for models on the runways, weddings, proms, birthday shoots, etc. LaTasha’s most exciting make-up job was doing makeup for an independent horror film. She was able to go above and beyond her creativity by painting a face to look dead and painting a face to look beat-up. This is the type of extreme make-up that she loves and inspires to do!
In addition to make-up, LaTasha has hosted workshops, taught on self-esteem and confidence, and she also poses as a mentor for young women in her community.
