Hello beautiful people! My name is Shanesha and I absolutely love doing makeup. There is nothing like transforming a person into whatever their heart desires.

Beauty By SMAQ was established in 2014. During the last year, I was featured in Encore HD Magazine, which is sold nationally at Walmart and Barnes & Noble. I've had the honor of working in a multitude of fashion shows in Dallas. I even had the pleasure of working with celebrity designer Pink Lucy at one of her photoshoots. I specialize in natural, glam, weddings, face painting, or just a night out on the town. I am here to cater to you. Your makeup wish is my glam command.I love the saying "The creation of beauty is art." Your face is my canvas to create art.

2. What type of services do you offer?

I do everything from fashion shows, weddings, or just every day natural looks. I offer a variety of makeup services- even one on one sessions for those women who are new to wearing makeup and want more tips and pointers.My website!prices/taj5p shows all of my services.
