Highly recommend Kani Beauty of Tatum. Being in my 50's i never learnt how to apply makeup and i booked in for a makeup lesson, and also tried eyelash extensions and a brow makeover. Amazing customer service, and so much knowledge and advice. This is the girl you need when needing a makeover or pampering. Terri xx

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

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 .

The lovely Kani at Beauty of Tatum squeezed me in on my wedding morning when another make up artist fell through!! She was able to do myself and a bridesmaid and turned the morning from a stressful disaster into laughs and happy vibes again. Would definitely recommend her for weddings, and my make up lasted all afternoon and into the night. Thank you again Beauty of Tatum xx
