Based in Williamsport PA, Markeisha Valentine, owner of LashByKeisha Beauty Studio, is a professional makeup artist with over 9 years of experience. Markeisha holds certification in beauty, fashion, TV/Film, and Special FX Makeup Artistry, implementing looks that cover a wide range with exceptional results. Bold and daring, sexy and eye-catching, romantic and soft, scary, and horrific. Markeisha describes her makeup artistry as “painting on a live canvas”. Every canvas is different whether it’s shape, color, texture, etc. Each with its own vision, opinion, and story. That’s the beauty and excitement in makeup artistry, that no canvas is exactly like another.
Markeisha has always been passionate about art. She has been a very creative person since grade school days. Markeisha got inspired at a young age from the TV show “Out of the Box” that premiered on the Disney channel in the early 2000s.
After attending Tom Savini’s Special Makeup Effects program at Douglas Education Center in 2012, Markeisha then went on as a freelance makeup artist in Williamsport, specializing in makeup for weddings, special events, photoshoots, and professional functions. She also shares her expertise by providing “one on ones”, group consultations, and lessons.
With Markeisha’s new studio opening, she will be hosting a BYOB Ladies Night called “Face-Did”. A night to gather up 4 to 6 of your girlfriends and go over step-by-step, full-face, makeup tutorials while sipping on your favorite wine or beverage!
