Unapologetic in her pursuit to diversify the marketplace, Tisha built LYS™ as a landing-place for makeup and skincare solutions that are uniquely catered to various skin types, textures and tones, while addressing common skin concerns, like hyperpigmentation, dark spots and sensitive skin. With ingredients as her tool and confidence as the goal, Tisha is on a mission to dispel the myth that clean beauty, deep shade ranges and high-performance products cannot coexist.
Following a listen and respond approach to innovation, Tisha has spent years intimately studying the beauty consumer to fill gaps in the market as it relates to performance, shade offerings, undertones and marketing representation. Truly becoming one with the lab, she relays these consumer concerns for a final result that gives you the immediate payoff you want with the lasting benefits your skin needs. Because when it comes to your skin, compromising shouldn’t be an option.
Innately curious and hungry for change, Tisha dedicates her time traveling the world to discover best beauty practices, emerging trends and consumer-facing concerns to create products that break down barriers and build up confidence. She is known for celebrating the non-conforming views of beauty through globally recognized campaigns.
As a millennial mom of two, beauty enthusiast and undisputed go-getter, Tisha understands the industry’s need for clean products that are equal parts effective and inclusive. She dedicates her time traveling across the world to discover emerging trends, ingredients and practices and consumer-facing concerns, which are echoed throughout the company to produce a carefully curated collection of products that satisfy the needs of the global consumer. When she’s not at the baseball field with her two son’s, you can find her testing products in the lab, conceptualizing beautiful packaging or brainstorming strategies to break down the barriers in the beauty industry.
