A bit about me…I was born and raised in Thailand and since I was 7 years old I always had an aesthetic eye for color. My early inspiration into this industry was from my father, a very talented photographer. I knew that this was the world I wanted to be in when I saw the beautiful photos of people he was able to create. I was amazed at how great makeup on people made good photos GREAT photos. Music, fashion, movies, photography, and makeup has always been a main focus in my life and, when I discovered my passion for makeup, I knew I found my calling.
In 2007, I began a new life in the United States. Now a citizen of this country, I have had the pleasure of working as a professional makeup artist in cities across America, but I now call Las Vegas my home. As a photographer myself, I understand the importance of proper and professional makeup application as it applies specifically to still photography and videography. I consider myself more than just a person who applies makeup, I do consider myself to be an artist and the human face my canvas. My many years of experience with colors and pigments that can compliment my clients’ needs are what I excel at.
Whether your makeup needs are for men or women, world famous models and entertainers or even if you are a future bride in need of amazing makeup for your wedding, no project is too large or small for my talents.
Tai Shane is an entrepreneur. From a very young age, she started owning businesses including two restaurants by the age of 25 years old. As the second generation restaurant business owner. She always loved makeup. So in 2007, she gave up everything to pursue her passion in the makeup industry in America. Then her new adventures began.
Tai started working assisting other artists to gain her experience in production. Her first job in America was Sephora where she gained experience with all different skin types, ages, etc. and learned more variety of makeup products in the market. After that she moved to work at Inglot Cosmetic standalone store when they first opened new stores in Las Vegas. Tai worked side by side with the management team from the original Inglot from Poland and also Mr. Inglot himself. Her next job was with Makeup For Ever Boutique store where she learned and grew so much as an artist along with many talented team members and traveling all over America.
_Finally, deciding it was time to do freelance full time, although a very difficult decision, it was the best decision she made. Only after a few years as a freelance makeup artist, she gained so many clients that she could no longer take care of by herself. She began to source out her makeup artist and hair stylist friends to work along with her. After a few years of outsourcing it was time to open a business, and in 2014 Makeup Now USA was born.
Makeup Now USA is one of the most successful on-location makeup and hair services in Las Vegas, with many repeat clients, as well as ongoing new clientele. The business grew so fast that within two years, Tai needed someone to help out to expand the business even more. Sue Pyne, her good friend and fellow artist, came in as a business partner. Together they are planning to expand Makeup Now USA to other states and franchise.
Tai didn’t stop there and went on to create her first product, The Brush Soap. It is the artists’ favorite brush soap on the market used for cleaning, sanitizing and moisturizing makeup brushes, sponges and paint brushes. You can find all the beauty accessories products that created by professional makeup artist Tai Shane, including The Brush Soap at Kemoot.
