Keisha Elise is a former educator and mother to three beautiful children.  Keisha found her passion for makeup and fashion at an early age. However, she put her dreams on hold when she found out she was pregnant with her now 13 year old daughter. She was a single parent for many years and struggled to put herself through school while providing for her children. As her children got older, Keisha started to realize she was very unhappy with her education career. She then decided to take a leap of faith and quit her teaching job to pursue her dreams in the beauty industry. 

Keisha Elise Cosmetics was founded in 2019. Keisha was passionate about creating a brand that represented herself as well as her daughter. Her goal is to continue to show more representation of women of color to the beauty industry. Motherhood has not always been easy but always worth it. She prides herself in sharing her personal experiences and empowering women to find their passion in life.
