My dad used to say makeup was a shallow girl’s sport, but it’s not. It’s armor.

Nicole is a professionally trained and certified makeup artist. Nicole’s creative journey started long before she began working with makeup. In her college years, there was always a painting or drawing class on her schedule. For many years her full time job just supported her creative endeavors. It wasn’t until she met her then roommate, now sister in law who was working as a makeup artist, that she was inspired to pursue makeup artistry. Now instead of canvas, she works on faces. She finds it so rewarding to make a client feel beautiful and to see the confidence it brings.
