Lanii is a self-taught makeup artist and licensed cosmetologist from Elizabeth, New Jersey. Lanii became infatuated with art at 9 years old when learning about Claude Monet. Coincidentally Lanii’s art teacher bought her first canvas and paint brush set. It was then that she learned that painting was her outlet. Doa made the bold decision to transition from canvases to the human body. After spending one year perfecting her craft, Doa began taking clients and opened her own business, Lanii Doa Cosmetics. With the help of social media, referrals, and an undeniable hustle, Lanii is here to stay.
