11/10-- can't recommend highly enough
Nichole is so, so awesome.Sent on 05/08/2019
She is super friendly and professional, and went above & beyond the call of duty as my wedding makeup artist. When my concealer creased during my trial (probably due to my oily skin), she went into investigator mode, finding techniques for me to try (fellow oily-skinned gals: mixing a tiny bit of setting powder into your liquid foundation is a game changer-- you're welcome!) to ensure that my makeup was perfect on my wedding day. While I loved my trial aside from that minor concealer issue, she was completely open to feedback and changing things up if I wanted to tweak anything.
When we had a day-of crisis (it didn't look like my outside, non-Artista hair stylist was going to show up-- she eventually did, 2 hours late... yep), I reached out to Nichole on the edge of panic to see if she could bring her hair kit just in case. She responded to my email immediately, reassuring me that she was bringing it & that we had a backup plan in the event that the hairdresser didn't show. This gave me so much peace of mind, and her professionalism throughout the day as she gave myself, my mom, & my maid of honor gorgeous looks for the day was so appreciated. It was sweet to see how special & pampered she made my mom feel as they visited during her turn.
Can not recommend Artista highly enough-- you will not be sorry if you hire her for your event.

Best makeup artist!
Nichole was the best makeup artist and was able to make me feel special on my wedding day. She works with you to figure out your comfort level to make sure you look great on your special day. She also worked with my bridesmaids to make them look gorgeous as well!Sent on 09/02/2019
We've had the pleasure of working alongside Nichole on several occasions. Her professional, yet friendly, approach is just perfect to add to the calmness of the Day. We just completed a wedding together on the central coast - a bride and 5 bridesmaids - and all requested extra eyelashes! Not only did she complete the task on time, very important for us the photographers, but the bridal party looked flawless and photographed perfectly. Her ability and natural mineral make-up are two big assets in achieving beautiful results. Don't hesitate to contact Artista Makeup. Loyal & Joan - L&JNewville PhotographyDesign
