Nicole was first captured by the Make-Up Industry when she suffered from acne in her teenage years, using make-up as a means to cover up. Nicole soon learned that her love for make-up was not in using it as a tool to achieve a certain beauty standard, but in enhancing an individual's natural beauty in unique and creative ways. She loves to create natural beauty, as well as build on traditional looks with bold uses of colours and textures that can express individuality and personality. Nicole especially loves when her makeup can enhance the natural beauty of her clients to bring out their confidence and support self love.
Make-Up for fashion, editorial and photographic media is also something that Nicole loves to create. Nicole has always had a love for the arts, in particular from her fine art background, which is often incorporated into her creative looks. Nicole draws on these skills and applies them to her make-up, taking inspiration from art, music, film, culture and nature.
