I’ve been working as a Makeup Artist for over ten years, and in that time I have been lucky enough to work with a huge number of brides seeking the perfect look for their big day. I have also worked with many women wanting to look their most beautiful for a special event and those looking to enhance their knowledge of how to use makeup for their every day lives. I began my journey in makeup artistry at the London College of Fashion where I completed a course in fashion makeup. Having caught the makeup bug I continued my training at Retford International College on a two year adventure in makeup for film, television, specials effects and fashion.
After my training, I worked at SpaceNK for two years where my talent for making people feel beautiful was truly realised. This is where my career in makeup really began, as I was able to hone my technical skills, working on different skin tones on a daily basis. This gave me a broader depth of understanding of how different tones and textures work on various types of skin.
My absolute passion is working in the bridal industry and being a part of someone’s special day. I started to offer bridal hair styling as part of my service four years ago, being able to do both hair and makeup styling means that I can really put a whole look together.
It’s important to me that my brides have the best experience of having their hair and makeup done for both the tria,l and the wedding day. When we meet for your wedding trial, we will take our time discussing colour schemes, your wedding style, your dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, accessories, hair styles, skincare and your current makeup routine amongst other things so together we can create the perfect hair and makeup look for your wedding day.
I also offer bespoke makeup lessons and hair and makeup for proms, special events and photography. I’m extremely passionate about what I do and take great pride in making you feel confident and red carpet ready.
I’ve always thought I was a perfectionist when it came to make-up – but Nicky takes this to the next level!!! I wanted to steer clear of the heavy British bridal make-up as it’s not my style – and Nicky managed to create a romantic, simple look without going too heavy at all – she built my look up gradually until we got to a point where both of us were very happy with the end result. Aside from the make-up, it was just a pleasure to have Nicky around – she was calm, relaxed and helped me stay stress-free throughout the whole time before the wedding.
Thank you so much Nicky for doing my hair and makeup for our wedding last month. You were so patient with me at the trial and let me try a few styles so on the day I felt such it would be perfect. My mum loved having her makeup done by you, thank you for getting her to try new colours. xx
