MEET THE CURATOR
Takeesha has always had an eye for anything beauty/health related since she was a little girl. Through cultural standards, she was always expected to be a doctor, nurse, or lawyer but truthfully, she was interested in neither. The interests she shared revolved around makeup, hair, and nails! She graduated from Bridgewater State in 2017 with a Bachelor’s in science focusing on Health. Her courses included topics such as health promotion, stress management, and public health. Even though she obtained a BA in Health, she managed to start her beauty career while still going to college full-time, by volunteering in fashion shows, time for print photoshoots, and more. She is even a former Sephora employee from 2016-2019 where she learned about color theory and was able to advance her makeup knowledge and application skills there. Takeesha is a self-taught artist and has also furthered her education in Makeup Artistry through QC Makeup Academy.
At the age of 16, Takeesha was diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa. (HS) is a chronic autoimmune disease. It causes painful, boil-like lumps that form under the skin. It often affects areas where the skin rubs together, such as your armpits and groin. The lumps become inflamed and very painful.
Since being diagnosed in 2010, Takeesha was informed by her PCP that she wasn't able to use commercial body care products anymore due to certain ingredients causing the inflammation. She struggled for years trying to find products that were good for her and more importantly, inexpensive.
YOUR BEAUTY IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY
December 2019 Takeesha started experimenting with different recipes and discovered that making her own products were more suitable for her auto-inflammatory condition.
In high school she had become infatuated with the beauty industry and it became her ultimate goal to exceed expectations and play a prominate role in caring for others the best way she knows how -- through BEAUTY.
The Curative Beauty was created to provide a holistic approach to mild/severe skin conditions and the goal is to raise awareness and help curate positive results no matter the age, skin type, or gender.
