Testimonials

Fantastic and friendly service. I got my foundation perfectly matched and further advise on make up products to suit my skin after it changed during pregnancy. Kani helped me choose quick application and long lasting make up to suit my busy lifestyle. Thank you so much Kani and team for helping me feel fresh again! Bek

Kani killlllled the makeup for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding on Saturday. She is so talented and so fun to work with! I felt like an absolute Princess. She 100% knows what she is doing and is so knowlegable about her products and the latest trends.  I cannot recommend her enough! For everything from tans to eyebrows to makeup.... She is all over it! Thank you for looking after us Kani! Can't wait to see your face again soon!

Cannot recommend Kani enough and where to start! I knew years ago Kani was the woman to help me for my wedding not only because of local recommendations but the fact she takes true pride in her work and every single person that walks in her door. Kani takes the time to ask you the right questions, listens to what you want but doesn’t beat around the bush and will give you the best advice no matter the service. This beautiful lady I consider a friend due to her lovely nature & maybe the fact she helped feed me during my bridal make up haha ???? I don’t go to many events Kani but sure enough when I do I won’t be anywhere else but Beauty of tatum .

I cannot recommend the ladies at Beauty of Tatum enough!! I have zero knowledge of make up but after a one on one lesson with Kani and a custom blend foundation I am feeling confident in any future makeup application. Kani is fun, positive and patient. Definitely get the custom blend- it’s makes all the difference.
