Tanika is an LA/NY based makeup artist and hair stylist. Raised in rural Oregon, she was exposed to more nature than fashion but she always found a way to create magic. Tanika's interest in the arts began at age nine, when she started using her little sister as a model, dolling her up in their mother's makeup and taking polaroid glamour shots of the fabulous results. Years later, Tanika moved to Portland, Oregon, where she developed her skills at Nordstrom. She then found side work with photographers doing commercial photo shoots, which blossomed and eventually relocated her to Los Angeles, where she finally expanded her passion on a larger scale. Today, Tanika travels the world, doing what she loves with some of the most successful and talented people in the industry.
