    Aisha is a professional makeup artist and skincare specialist in Washington, DC who, over the past 10 years, has gained a reputation of one of the area’s leading beauty experts. Working with professional lines such as Trish McEvoy, Bobbi Brown, Shu Uemura, Stila, and Smashbox, she not only has mastered the techniques of various schools of beauty, but also has extensive knowledge about the wide variety of products on the market today. Beginning with her training in New York City with celebrity Makeup Artist Trish McEvoy, Aisha’s experience has helped her develop a signature Beauty Philosophy that has made her one of the most sought-after makeup artists in the region, “You don’t need to wear a lot of makeup to look polished. Instead, focus on key ways to bring out the best in your features. Beauty is not about covering up what you think is wrong, it's about celebrating your individual style and feeling great!" In 2005, she teamed up with fellow makeup gurus, Giannina Giraldo and Harmony Williams to found Picture Perfect Makeup, a company offering services in everything from Bridal Beauty to Makeup Lessons in the DC area.
