About Page The Founder Section
A trained makeup artist turned beauty business maven, Tisha Thompson, is the Founder and CEO of LYS™ Beauty with more than 18 years’ industry experience in clean beauty product development, brand management, marketing, finance and operations. 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 all 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 skin-first approach and strict formulation guidelines, Tisha has spent years intimately studying the beauty consumer overall but with a focus on people of color to fill gaps in the market as it relates to clean products, performance, shade offerings, undertones and marketing representation. Truly becoming one with the lab, she uses these consumer concerns to create products that give 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, and everyone deserves access to clean beauty. 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.
