Architecture tempered by art.

Sweet Tea Cosmetics, LLC., is a fresh, modernistic makeup brand dedicated to serving face to EVERYONE. We sell high quality, luxury cosmetics to our customers. Our products are assured to be hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, allergy tested, cruelty free, and fragrance free*. 

Sweet Tea Cosmetics, LLC., was founded July of 2016 by CEO/Owner, Teanna Bass, in the summer before her sophomore year of college. Sweet Tea was created to give purpose and meaning into Teanna’s life when she was struggling with school, balancing multiple jobs at a time, and battling anxiety and depression. Once it was settled that Teanna wanted to regain control over life, she started Sweet Tea Cosmetics, LLC. 

It started with a tweet: “I want to own my own cosmetics line by the end of my junior year.” 

To now participating in the Entrepreneurial Scholarship Program and becoming a storefront operator/owner at the University of Missouri on behalf of the Missouri Student Unions... all before the end of her junior year of college. 

Now, practically 2 years later, Teanna has opened her store front marking the beginning of her senior year.
