Hey y'all, it’s Riss!

More than six years ago, I was a professional makeup artist helping women feel confident in applying their makeup. I started a YouTube channel to share my love for all things beauty and inspire other women. Thus my tribe was born.

If you’ve been along for the journey with me since then, thank you! You were there when I reached 100,000 subscribers and when it doubled. You’ve seen me transition through several seasons, including dating my now husband, becoming engaged, getting married (both times, IYKYK), and now life as a girl mom. 

Today, I’m blessed to be a full-time entrepreneur, wife and mother. How things have changed! I get to do what I love and inspire women across the country and around the world. Women like you. 

Here on LorissaNelson.com, you’re gonna get a lot of beauty, a lot of realness, a lot of faith, and a lot of encouragement. When you look in the mirror, I want you to see Beautiful You. It’s not about the makeup you wear, how you style your hair or the latest fashion trends. More than anything, I seek to inspire my tribe to live a life of true beauty—beauty that is felt, not just seen. 

I believe I am uniquely positioned to empower others. You’ve got dreams. Me, too. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed. Me, too. We’re all just taking it one step at a time, and if no one has told you today, I’m on your side.
