Meet Veronica Velazquez of TAS Makeup Academy in South Central Los Angeles

Today we’d like to introduce you to Veronica Velazquez.

Veronica (owner of TAS Makeup Academy) was born in Mexico and moved to Los Angeles as a baby. She has been a professional hair and makeup artist since 1996 and is thankful to have a career that she enjoys. It’s not just the artistic aspect of it that she loves, it’s her clients. When she transforms how someone sees themselves and makes them feel beautiful…that is what this career is all about for her. She loves showing people the beauty that lies within each one of them. She is passionate about her work and loves to create looks that leave her clients looking, and feeling, beautiful. She can expertly create any look that is desired, from natural to dramatic. She is a seasoned professional; she is reliable, prompt and accommodating. Her friendly, laid-back, yet professional approach puts her clients at ease. She attends hair and makeup seminars to keep up with new trends and techniques. She is the type of person that will go above and beyond to help others.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road. It’s hard not knowing when students will sign up for our next course or where work will come from but then again not all work is 100% secure.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with TAS Makeup Academy – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
TAS Makeup Academy was founded to offer a Makeup Artistry program where we have spent a great deal of time in researching and creating a lesson plan that we feel gives our students the best makeup education possible. We have chosen to offer our expertise by developing a curriculum that gives our graduates the right tools to succeed in any part of the makeup industry.

Our students are taught the techniques that will prepare them to do freelance makeup, work on set at music videos, films, TV shows, magazines, fashion, and all forms of print media. Our goal is for every graduate to leave the program with confidence in their skills, ready for the real world of Makeup Artistry.

We are proud of all our graduates and how far they have gone in their career in the makeup industry.

We focus on a small setting class to help our students prepare for their new role as a freelance Makeup Artist and provide them with quality education and leadership.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Since opening the doors to TAS Makeup Academy I’ve come to realize that the hardest part is over. I can focus on continuing to grow as a person a business owner, Instructor, mentor and also share my knowledge with our students. And maybe one day expand my business.
