WAIT! WHO IS TONOI?
This is the number one question I get when meeting a new client. I am Tonoi. My name is Markeisha Tonoi Similton. Ever since I was 6 years old I knew I wanted to be a makeup artist and "see my name in lights". I vowed to make that dream come true. Because Tonoi was what I used to call "chic me", I wanted to build my brand with my middle name verses my first.
After graduating high school I was told I needed to head to college, once I realized I had to pay- I dropped out and enrolled in beauty school, where my passion has always been. With my father being a former hairstylist and barber, I knew beauty was in my blood. After being Licensed (in Esthetics in 2010) and certified in Makeup and Eyelash Extensions in 2011, my passion for beauty grew. Without any help financially, I opened the doors to my baby, Mezmereyez by Tonoi, in 2013. Staying on top in the lash industry is so important to me. Yearly, I invest in my own education to bring back the latest trends to my clients.

Mezmereyez By Tonoi is OC's premier upscale Makeup and Eyelash Lounge created by Markeisha Tonoi. "My vision is to bring a feeling of confidence to each woman regardless of age, size, or color". I specialize in practical everyday beauty for the everyday woman.
I felt the need to create a venue where women could come together and enjoy each other's company, a place where women could lounge and get glammed at the same time... Men have barbershops, women now have Mezmereyez!
