Triumphant Transitions founder La Trice Edwards likes to say she hangs around the Stars! She actually is referring to clients for whom she donates countless hours in providing makeovers and other services to those in transition from difficult circumstances. For those who know this Gary native and Ball State grad, she is a professional makeup artist and entrepreneur inducted for her servant heart in launching Triumphant Transitions. Indeed, more than 300 clients have been served since its founding in 2005. Fact is, her work as a makeup artist has been seen on major films and television networks in such hits as Public Enemies, Transformers 4, Chicago Fire, and Empire. Currently, she is working on Widows directed by Steve McQueen, renowned for 12 Years a Slave, with the Legendary star Viola Davis. That said, her road has not been easy with a fall that broke her left arm, but after a successful surgery, she was able to return to work. Still, her disability sidelined her for an entire season, and yet, her spirit remained indomitable. She delayed her surgery because of a commitment to serve women from Sojourner Truth House. “I told the surgeon that I need to take care of God’s people first.” Most recently, this faith-based artist launched a t-shirt line called “Power Style Tees.” It is fashion with a purpose as a portion of the proceeds benefits charities.
