Self Taught Makeup Maven Turned Entrepreneur


Nina R. Nesbitt is a 22 year old D.C. native and makeup enthusiast who is changing the game.

The self taught makeup artist began learning from Youtube about 5 years back. She perfected her craft during her time at Howard University and launched Nina Renee Beauty, as she began taking clients for different events, such as pageants, graduation, photoshoots and more. 

In July, 2017 she expanded her vison, as she launched her first product line, LUXE LASH, luxury mink strip lashes. LUXE LASHES are not your average or typical drugstore lashes; Nina had a vision for 10 different styles for her customers to chose, so they could have the perfect lash for every occasion. The Lash Line was branded very well, with an appealing layout that all ladies will love and fabulous names like: Glamazon and Teenage Fever. These lashes are super affordable at $18 per style. You may think that is pricey, but these are hand crafted mink strips that can be resused if treated with proper care. If you are someone like me who loves lash extensions,        then this is a great deal if you aren't able to drop $150 on your lashes. 


Her businesses are doing so well that she's even decided to start offering classes. On November 5, 2017 she hosted her first Makeup Master Class entitled  "All Face No Filter" where she did a makeup tutorial, had a question and answer session, offered bottomless mimosas and a pair of her luxury mink lashes to everyone who registered and attended. 


Nina lives her life by the saying "Dream in glitter, think in gold, live in luxury and I am not only proud of her as a friend,but as a fellow black woman who is fueled by her passion and chasing her dreams. If you are    ever in D.C. and need your makeup done book my girl, she is a true up and comer in the beauty industry and someone to look out for in the future.
