Makeup artist Tish Perkins's resumé sparkles with accomplishments, from working as a member of the Glam Squad for the 2011 Miss Black USA Pageant to earning Go Pretty's first annual Beauty Pro Award. Though these recent praises have gained her a lot of attention, Perkins has stayed focused on her passion: bringing out her clients' natural beauty with traditional and airbrush makeup. Whether dolling up faces for a boudoir shoot or applying jewels to an Indian bride, Perkins relies on her seven years of experience to work on any skin tone. Perkins is also a trained eyelash extensionist, using strip lashes, clusters, and semi-permanent lash extensions to define lash lines. By applying one strand at a time, she is able to build upon sparse lids until they resemble the glamorous lashes of a movie star or reach the football-size lengths that comprise a giraffe's main form of self-defense.
