Hello, nice to meet you!
HI, I'M NICOLE!
WHAT'S YOUR BACKGROUND AS A MAKEUP ARTIST?
My background is in the arts. Graphic Design specifically. I’ve built a corporate career working as a Graphic Designer in the Apparel Industry here in Toronto since I graduated from OCAD University in 2007.
My interests in Makeup + Hair came later in 2010. I took my interests even further by attending George Brown School of Makeup in 2012. The classes took me into working at fashion shoots which evolved into assisting artists at wedding bookings and eventually turned into a love of wedding mornings and the start of my own wedding beauty business.
If I’m not working as a designer creating product, I’m helping my clients get ready for their wedding day. You can say I’m a lifelong creative person balancing my two career loves :) I love to make stuff, and I love to paint faces.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WEDDINGS?
Actually, it’s the love of helping people feel great about themselves - whether it’s a wedding or not.
Helping people feel amazing is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling for me.
WHAT DO YOU YOUR CLIENTS LOOK FOR?
My clients usually want to look and feel like themselves for their wedding day. Polished, flawless, yet not distracting from themselves. This usually means skin that looks like skin, but perfected. Features and hair enhanced, and elevated.
I love working with clients to help create their overall look for the day.
No two brides are alike, and my makeup and hair services are highly customized to fit each client.
WHAT IS YOUR MAKEUP APPLICATION STYLE?
My preferred medium for working on Brides is airbrush.
I have an airbrush specific kit - and I love creating a complexion with the airbrush technique and product because of how flawless, lightweight feeling, long lasting, radiant, and "natural" it looks.
Airbrushing is quite technical, but when done correctly, the result creates a beautiful skin like finish that does not feel cakey at all.
