Nisa was incredible! It was hard to find a makeup artist that would come on site for bridal makeup only, but she was flexible and met me at my getting-ready location to do my bridal makeup. She did an absolutely incredible job; she nailed "making me look like me, but the most... Read More glamorous version of me ever." She listened and adjusted to feedback well. She's also super nice and responsive. I would highly recommend Nisa; next time I have a big event, I know who my go to MUA will be!

My friend recommended Nisa and I booked without even doing a trial run! She was amazing and did just what I asked. I normally don't wear much makeup, and she knew how to give me the right coverage without making me feel like I had too much makeup on. My bridesmaids were so... Read More impressed, some of them actually ended up booking her for their weddings also!! Coulnd't have been happier with the experience!!

Nisa was absolutely amazing to work with! I went with my mom and mother-in-law for a trial run prior to the wedding, and Nisa did a wonderful job. She had us take pictures throughout the night to see how the makeup would hold up, and came prepared the day of the wedding with... Read More photos of what we did at the trial and our notes on how to update our looks. The day of the wedding Nisa and her assistant did my makeup, my mom's, my mother-in-law's, both grandmas, and all 5 bridesmaids. Everyone looked absolutely stunning!! I was truly blown away by the way they enhanced everyone's natural beauty and made sure everyone looked like themselves. I had multiple people comment on how they asked every single person how they normally do their makeup to ensure they weren't doing anything that would make them look too different than daily life. They were both fun, and attentive to work with the whole day! When Nisa walked in the first thing she asked me is how my skin felt. I admitted I hadn't slept at all the night before and she quickly went to work putting moisturizer on my face, eye cream under my eyes to reduce puff and dark circles, and even put a lip exfoliator on before starting on anyone else. Her attention to detail and caring for her clientele is unmatched by anyone I have ever worked with! She was even able to put my 80 and 90 year old grandmas at ease and enhance their natural beauty as well. I would highly recommend Nisa to anyone, of any age, looking for a true professional who really cares about the people she is working with! Thank you, Nisa!!

I dropped the ball on booking a makeup artist until pretty last minute, but I'm glad I did because I stumbled upon Nisa and she was amazing! She is so talented and professional and truly listens to what you want. I was nervous about getting air brush foundation for the wedding... Read More because I did not want it to look too caked on, but Nisa did an awesome job of applying my makeup so that I felt like a more beautiful version of myself. All of my bridesmaids were raving about Nisa and the ones who had opted out of make up were regretting that decision once they saw her work. I definitely recommend Nisa to anyone and will be using her for future special occasions!

Nisa was an absolute joy to work with, and she did an AMAZING job on my wedding makeup in March. She was super friendly and professional. She made me feel really comfortable.

On the day of my wedding, Nisa made me feel really relaxed. My makeup look was exactly what I wanted. I can't wait to see the pictures!

Nisa is the best! I never ever ever wear make-up, but I decided I wanted to for my wedding, hoping that I would look like a more radiant version of myself. Nisa totally made this happen.

Nisa is truly magical. I wish she could make me up every day! We did a practice run and she took tons of time to get an idea of the look I was going for and to make sure I was completely happy.

Phenomenal Work

Reviewed on 10/04/2013 Sarah M

Nisa Nicole was a delight to work with, and I don't think I've ever looked as beautiful as I did on my wedding day. She was professional, easy to communicate with, and a extremely talented artist. I would absolutely recommend her to brides or to anyone who just wants to add... Read More pizazz for a special occasion. As someone who rarely wears makeup, I wasn't sure what I wanted. We experimented with a couple different styles, and throughout all of our trial runs, her primary objective was making sure I was happy with the result. It was easy to have an open dialogue with her about what I liked and what I didn't. I felt like she genuinely cared about getting to know me, and it payed off because on the day of the wedding, she knocked it out of the park. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Best Ever!

Before Nisa, each time I had my makeup done professionally I was unhappy with it. It felt unnatural and I never felt like myself. I strongly considered doing my own makeup for my wedding, but then someone recommended Nisa. At the trial, I could tell that she was very skilled but... Read More also very responsive to her clients' needs. I got exactly what I wanted at the trial, and, much more importantly, at my wedding! I felt beautiful, and I only wish I could have Nisa do my makeup all the time! If you are looking for a makeup artist, you have found the very best!

Nisa Beats Carmindy in Makeover Talent!

Reviewed on 9/10/2013 Danielle S

Nisa did my wedding makeup and I can't recommend her enough! To save money, I skipped the "trial run" and only met Nisa on my wedding day, and the results were glorious. I looked extraordinarily beautiful in exactly the way I wanted: natural, glowing, radiant and without looking... Read More like I had a lot of makeup on my face. I laughed, cried, ate BBQ and did some breakdancing at my wedding, and my makeup stayed perfect the whole night!!! Nisa took inspiration from and enhanced my natural coloring. I am a redhead with prominent freckles and I was worried about foundation & "airbrush makeup" for my spotty complexion, but Nisa did an outstanding job. I really recommend getting "airbrush" makeup because its longlasting effect is awesome. I also got fake lashes that Nisa applied in groups of 3 or four (instead of doing the whole lash at once) and it was dramatic but very natural. Natural was important to me, so while doing my makeup, Nisa went slow and kept getting my input about how much more drama I wanted so we wouldn't go too far. She really has great taste and knew exactly when to stop. Nisa was very flexible before my wedding because I changed the venue for getting makeup done several times, and she was lovely, professional, kind, quick-working and serious about her work while doing my makeup on the Big Day. Nisa came recommended by my photographer, who sais Nisa was one the most talented makeup artists who she had every worked with. That's important coming from a photographer, who is #3 right after bride and groom in terms of caring about how the bride looks on her wedding day! Confession: I was on What Not to Wear years ago and got my makeup done by the famous Carmindy. Looking at side-by-side pictures for comparison, I can absolutely say that Nisa did a superior job to Carmindy. Nisa won! I loved the makeover so much that I wanted to know which products Nisa used so that I might try to imitate the effect on my own. After my wedding, Nisa was kind enough to email me with a detailed description of the brain, types and shades of makeup she had used on my wedding day, which was really going above and beyond! Thanks, Nisa!
