Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Nisa, and I am a makeup artist currently located in Austin, Texas. I’d like to use this first post to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born in Trinidad & Tobago. My family came to the States when I was seven years old. As a child I enjoyed staying up late and watching runway shows during Fashion Week. I loved seeing interviews with the designers and makeup artists, as they discussed their inspirations and techniques. My passion for the arts led me to earn an Associate of Arts degree in Studio Art. I went on to pursue a degree in Fashion Design from Drexel University, but eventually completed my Bachelor of Arts in International Area Studies. Why did I switch my major? I got scared of pursuing my dreams. Doubt set in about my talents and abilities, so I chose to study something more academic.
