Nisa has been doing makeup for over 15 years in Austin, TX. She started as an esthetician in 2001 and quickly fell in love with makeup. She is a former MAC Makeup Artist and has attended several education classes over the years learning new techniques, fine tuning her skills and cultivating her talent.

Nisa continues to stay up on the latest trends, styles, and products bringing them to all of her clients. Practicing cleanliness, sterilization and "hands-off" techniques is very important to her and it keeps Nisa from cross contamination or exposing her clients to harmful bacteria.
