Nicole's involvement with makeup dates back many years. As the daughter of a painter she has always gravitated towards the artist side of things. Her original goal in life was to be part of the motion picture industry. While attending Full Sail University, in pursuit of her dream, she was exposed to the transformative process, an actor goes under for a role, and fell in love. It was then, that she realized what she truly wanted out of life; to become a Professional Makeup Artist. Nicole furthered her immersion into the makeup world, after receiving her BA at Full Sail, by enrolling at Joe Blasco Makeup Academy. While attending Joe Blasco, she worked hand in hand with some of the industry's best makeup and special effects artists. Armed with the experience one gains by attending such prestigious institutions, she set out to follow her dreams.
While Nicole's initial focus in the makeup world had been editorial in nature -- focusing predominately on high fashion and film shoots -- over the past seven years she has cultivated a niche within the New York City wedding industry as a bridal makeup artist.
There is nothing in the world, that Nicole values more than being able to bring a bride's vision to life, on her wedding day. Nicole's style and core belief is that makeup should be simple, captivating, and highlight the best features of every woman. Nicole combines traditional makeup application techniques with high-definition airbrushing for a beautifully natural look that appears as good in person as it does when captured by digital photography and production.
Beyond bridal makeup, Nicole is highly active in other facets of the makeup industry as she continues to expand upon her robust portfolio of editorial work. In addition, Nicole's talents have been featured in a number of leading blogs and magazines covering the bridal and fashion industries.
