We had the good fortune of connecting with LaToya Taylor and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LaToya, we’d love to hear your perspective on online dating (or interesting anecdotes).
Oh my goodness, where do I even start on my views on online dating?! I did attempt to try at one point in time with some friends of mine to see how it would go. I will say that it is not for me at all. My experience was interesting, to say the least. I didn’t really know what to expect going into it since it was my first time trying it. I will say that I did have some interesting/funny experiences though. I had a guy try and talk to me who wanted to fly me out to L.A. to meet and move in with him and this was the first initial conversation. There is so much more that it made me never want to try it again. I do applaud those that can do it though!

What should our readers know about your business?
I am the owner and operator of Redd Karpet Makeup. I am a traveling makeup artist and what I believe sets me apart from others is that I give my clients an experience every single time. I take my time to listen to what my clients want and I pay attention to the detail in my artistry. I make them feel like celebrities when they’re getting their makeup done. It has been a long and continuous journey to get to where I am today business-wise. It has not been easy by far! I will say that I have learned and grown a lot during the journey. I have become stronger through it and learned a lot from some amazing people who are successful entrepreneurs. I overcame a lot of challenges by not comparing myself to others in their journey with their businesses and to just continue to keep moving forward no matter what things look like. Those small steps will continue to get you closer to your goals and the vision you have for your business. What I am most proud of and excited about is that I have taken a leap of faith and am about to launch my first product for my brand. It is something that has been a dream of mine for a very long time. This is the first of many products to come and I couldn’t be more excited.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I have lived in Dallas for a very long time and I still have not experienced everything here. There is so much to do and experience here. I would definitely take my friend downtown since there are so many things that can be done. I would take them to see the different museums and art galleries. I am a foodie so I definitely would take them to enjoy some of the good food downtown Dallas has to offer as well.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my family and friends. I can honestly say that I have an amazing tribe! They encourage me when I feel like giving, up and tell me the truth no matter what. I truly thank God for them!
