Thanks you sooooo much for visiting my site! I'm so excited you're here!
I'm Latia Curtis -- better known as Latia Curtis Makeup + Hair. I absolutely LOVE everything about makeup and hair design, as well as film, photo, and commercial work! There is absolutely nothing like being on set, collaborating with other departments, reading a script, making breakdowns, designing a character's aesthetic and bringing it to life. I especially love working closely with Directors of Photography and the Camera Department to learn their lighting setup, so I can adjust my application accordingly. My experience as a Production Assistant on larger budget projects and a Producer/Casting Director for regional projects gives me special insight into how a film set works and how all departments, above and below the line, collaborate to produce a successful project. Besides working on dozens of film and commercial photo projects I'm also one of the most sought after makeup educators in the area, teaching an average of one group makeup lesson per month. I also have the great honor of being a freelance artist through one of the biggest bridal makeup and hair artist companies in the Southeast!
I've been a professional makeup artist for more than 10 years now. My interest in makeup began as a youth, participating in my local youth theater. While I lacked the skill and memory to act, I found myself cast in smaller, supporting roles and spending many hours backstage, killing time in the Makeup and Hair room. There, I witnessed the transformation of the actors and was hooked. Couple that with my love of literature, history, and my life's experiences and voila! I'm pursuing my life's passion as a professional makeup artist and hair stylist. I take great pride in being considered one of the top "Multi Media Makeup Artists" in the Carolinas and cannot wait to bring my skills to you!
