Atlanta based makeup artist Yanique Downer, Founder and Creator of YAYABEATSFACE, is truly the definition of a makeup maven.
Yanique, or YaYa, began as a makeup artist working behind the counter. Her hobby and part-time job quickly became a career choice as she fell more in love with the craft. Her charismatic personality, eye for details, and skillful use of color theory quickly gained her widespread success in the industry. YaYa quickly built a following in Atlanta but it also spread throughout the United States. Her work has been featured on VH1, MTV, and BET as well as in countless magazine publications. She adapted the “Beat Face” after many clients raved about their flawless application and claimed it to be the best “beat with a brush” they’ve received.
