Welcome to my world of timeless natural beauty! I'm Nicole, a freelance make-up artist and licensed Esthetician, and I'm thrilled to have you here.
At the age of seven, I fell head over heels in love with makeup. It all began one magical night when my babysitter allowed me to stay up late and watch the iconic movie Grease. Witnessing Rizzo's mesmerizing transformation of Sandy, I was captivated. The power of makeup to metamorphose a schoolgirl into a confident, alluring woman ignited a fire within me. The very next day, I found myself drawing makeup palettes on the back page of my coloring book, eager to experiment. I even convinced my little sister to be my canvas, pretending to apply makeup on her face. In that moment, my destiny as a makeup artist was sealed.
For me, makeup is an artistry that allows me to unlock and celebrate the natural beauty that resides in each individual. It brings me joy to witness the transformative power of a skillfully applied brush or a perfectly blended shade. Whether I'm creating timeless bridal looks, enhancing the radiance of prom-goers, bringing fantastical characters to life for Comic-Con and Halloween, or delighting children with whimsical face painting at birthday parties, I am truly in my element. It is through makeup that I am able to express my boundless creativity in the most rewarding way.
In 2009, I embarked on a journey of professional growth and education, graduating from Spa Tech Institutes Advanced Esthetics program and earning my Cosmetologist license. These accomplishments were merely the foundation upon which I built my expertise. As a beauty adviser for Bobbi Brown and a freelance artist for Smashbox, I had the privilege of working with renowned brands and expanding my knowledge of the industry. Recognizing the importance of staying abreast of trends and mastering new techniques, I attended workshops and sought guidance from industry icons. Most recently, I had the incredible opportunity to study under the tutelage of the talented and knowledgeable makeup artist, Debra Macki. These experiences have enriched my craft and allowed me to continuously refine my skills, ensuring that I consistently deliver the highest level of artistry to my clients.
I believe that makeup should be a celebration of one's individuality, an enhancement that reveals and uplifts natural beauty. My mission is to empower individuals, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity, to embrace their unique features and radiate with confidence. I approach each client with personalized care, attentively listening to their desires and working collaboratively to achieve their desired look. Whether it's a bride seeking a timeless and elegant glow, a prom-goer longing for a look that exudes grace and youthfulness, or someone wanting to immerse themselves in the world of fantasy and transformation, I strive to exceed expectations and leave my clients feeling like the best versions of themselves.
Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey. Together, let's unlock your natural beauty and create captivating moments that will be cherished forever. I can't wait to be a part of your story. With warmest regards, Nicole, Freelance Make-Up Artist & Licensed Esthetician
