“My roots are in Chicago, but I draw my inspiration from around the world. Whether it’s working on a photo shoot, getting a bridal party dolled up, or sharing the tips and tricks I have acquired through the years, I always seek out and thrive on opportunities to apply my passion for creativity, art, and helping people feel special and beautiful. I love being part of someone's 'moment'.”

She first discovered her deep-rooted love for makeup artistry as a teenager but it wasn't until she was recruited to work at MAC Cosmetics, that Nicole decided to pursue a career in makeup. Since 2006 she has received her makeup artist certification from MAC as well as attended countless workshops, classes and masterclasses for beauty, editorial, bridal, and special effects makeup. Nicole has become a sought-after artist whose roles include principle hair, makeup, and wardrobe stylist for a top Chicago photographer, Featured Makeup Artist and event speaker for Estee Lauder, and makeup artist for the Ryan Seacrest-produced Bravo reality series, “The Shahs of Sunset”.
