Sisi Nike is a makeup artist and a proud New Jersey native. She is a woman that embodies a relentless work ethic and prides herself on exceptional service. Scouting out the best products on the market to stock her makeup kit when serving a diverse range of skin tones is a priority on Sisi’s list to be the best artist possible. Her past clients consist of brands such as IMAN Cosmetics, Jay Manuel Beauty and SheaMoisture. She also glammed musical artists and public figures like Keisha Epps, Tiwa Savage, Princess Sarah Culberson, Brianna Perry, and Angela Simmons -all names she never could have imagined working with as a student at Rutgers in her undergraduate engineering classrooms.
“Be who you want to be but BE STRATEGIC.”
Her passion for makeup grew intuitively while servicing close family and friends for their weddings. While working a corporate job in IT and management consulting, her passion quickly bloomed in to a profession and her very own luxury bridal business servicing affluent brides across New Jersey and New York. It was at this moment that Sisi decided to strike and go after the calls pouring in for her to work her magic.
Before taking the full leap, Sisi went on to earn her Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in personal care science and colloidal chemistry. She knew she loved being an artist but she understood the power and leverage by investing more in her technical education. Her technical background allows her to understand cosmetics in a way different than her fellow makeup artists.
Now a wife, mother and full-time freelance makeup artist, Sisi isn’t shying away from wearing more hats on a daily basis. She is the Voice and host of the “GIRL, Just Start” podcast, originator of the Custom Beauty Bag online makeup shopping service and founder of online accessories store, BLACSTAFF.
