I take a clean canvas and paint a masterpiece. Being a Makeup Artist allows me to play in colors; to transform someone's look, to make them look like someone/something else. I love when I have a client in my chair and the chair is turned around to reveal her look and they become speechless because they never imagined how great they could look. My favorite quote is "Beauty awakens the Soul to Act." When people feel and look beautiful (in their own eyes and others), they are more likely to take risks because they feel comfortable and confident in themselves.
We had a last minute MUA cancellation and NiSi was so kind to take over on her day off! She had free range to do whatever she thought was best and it turned out terrific! She made a 17 yr old feel and look so beautiful on her sr prom night! We could not be more pleased!! Very professional and so sweet!! Don’t look any further, book her!!!
Nisi was both professional and prepared to make my daughters makeup beautiful for prom. She was able to take my daughters vision and bring it to life. I recommend her to anyone who wants a great result. Thanks Nisi!!

What to Expect
My client will experience a drama free, professional service. Client will feel as if we've known each other for a while and be pleased with the professionalism, time management, and quality of my work.
I want my client to walk away from the event thinking,"she gave me more than I could have ever expected..."
I want to exceed my clients' and my very own expectations, because Beauty awakens the Soul to Act; I want my clients to feel more able to do anything they they put their minds to.
Who is Denise "NiSi" (pronounced Nuh-sigh) Lee? I am a Mother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Friend, Masters degree educated, nationally published MUA, Actress, Singer, Playwright, simply put- I am a tiny package filled with talents set to explode.
My love for entertainment and performing began as a child. Following everything my big sister was doing- I began singing, modeling and acting. In high school, I got really serious about Cosmetology- that sparked my love for makeup artistry. I completed Cosmetology school and my Bachelor of Fine Arts degee in Theatre Arts. Performing throughout North Carolina, I continued to get compliments on my own makeup. Eventually, I began teaching Drama for Kindergarten through 5th grade students. I was looking for something more.
During a conversation with E. Ashley Green (ArtbyAsh), she connected me with Makeup Artist Chandra Peak. I am currently a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant, and a freelance MUA. I have worked on weddings, photo shoots, films, Fashion On the Hudson (NY), Durham Fashion Week, and so many more to come. I enjoy making people look and feel beautiful. I enjoy trying new looks and challenging myself to give my client EXACTLY what they want and exceeding their expectations! A lot of my portfolio shows what happens when I have the opportunity to paint a clean canvas, it starts there.
