Testimonials

I cannot speak highly enough about Nicole's amazing work as a makeup artist! She is one of the most calm, kind, and sweet individuals I have ever worked with in any capacity. Having her around made us all feel more relaxed and at east from the moment she arrived. It was an absolute pleasure having her in the room for part of our getting ready process. During my bridal trial, Nicole asked a lot of questions and got a great understanding of what I was looking for. She even mentioned being excited to try out her skills with my ideas because I wanted something a bit different with my makeup, as I asked for a bit more drama and darkness around the eyes and lips. She delivered on every level while still making sure that I looked classy and relatively soft for my big day, even with a smoky eye and red lips! Nicole provided the makeup not only for myself (The Bride!) but also four female members of the bridal party and our flower girl; every single one of us felt transformed and wonderful for the big day. It would be impossible for me to put into words how happy I was with what Nicole did for me and my bridal party, but I hope this communicates even half of how happy we were with the whole experience! ~ Alexandra B.

I had the pleasure of being Nicole's (and her assistant's) canvas on my best friend's wedding day, and not only was I incredibly impressed with the outcome of her expertise but inspired by her talent as well! I only wish that I wrote this sooner, as the wedding was in February, and her forte deserves great recognition! Nicole is such a kind and pleasant person to begin with, she made me feel so comfortable in the chair behind her brushes, not only because she is genuinely easy to talk to but because her happiness is more than apparent - I could feel the passion infused in her work. Work, isn't even the correct word for it, clearly she thoroughly enjoys expressing her creativity through makeup and it certainly showed that day! My makeup stayed on well beyond the night, after the wedding, and remained in tact (even the eyelashes!). She used a warm, romantic colored palette that worked well with each skin tone, and beautifully complimented the plum dresses we all wore. I am certain she has the eye to do the same for any color theme anyone uses. The bride, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride all had stunning makeup done by Nicole and I highly recommend her to any person searching for a makeup artist, for any occasion. ~ Nicole B.

Nicole was a dream to work with. She came to my house for the pre-wedding make-up trial, which was great, because it saved me time and energy. She is friendly and easy to work with as well as being very professional. We discussed the 'look' I wanted for the wedding and after she'd completed the trial we took pictures. It made me feel that I knew, without worry or doubt, what I'd get on the day. In fact, on the day, her work exceeded my expectations. Not only did she arrive early to set up, but her calm demeanor and professionalism put all the girls in my wedding party at ease. That's not to mention how incredibly stunning I felt all my girls looked. On that day we all felt gorgeous. Not only was her work stunning, but she added happiness and cheer to the day. Her kindness went above and beyond, and her joy for my husband and I made me feel like I was getting my make-up done by an old friend.

Nicole is an award-winning makeup artist and beauty blogger, named one of Allure Magazine's Top 15 Beauty Bloggers of 2014, and earning a coveted spot in The Knot's  'Best of Weddings 2017' list of Best Bridal Makeup Artists. Currently based in Santa Fe, New Mexico but originally from the New York City metro area, Nicole has a diverse bridal and fashion skill set. With a background in photography and fine art, her time spent as a photographer and model gave her an inside peek at the fine details of camera-ready makeup artistry and she instantly fell in love with the craft.

Nicole was Sephora's first Senior Artist in Connecticut, responsible for training and certifying makeup artists across the state. She has done runway makeup for New York Fashion Week and has worked with brands such as Bobbi Brown, Hourglass, Marc Jacobs, Nars, Smashbox, Stila, Too Faced, and Urban Decay.
