Book with Nicole for your wedding!!

If there is one thing to take away from reading this long review I am about to write, let me just say BOOK NICOLE FOR YOUR WEDDING ASAP! First, she is the most genuine, sweetest person you will meet and want by your side for your wedding day. Secondly, a make-up artist and esthetician all in one? What more can you ask for? When I found Nicole’s business and past reviews from others, I knew I wanted her for my wedding day! I have always been insecure about my skin and wanted to feel my very best on my wedding day, which is exactly how I felt thanks to her! I did her Bridal Boot Camp package (do it you won’t regret it) and my skin was the best it ever looked and felt leading up to my wedding day. Not only did I love my make-up and look for my wedding day, but my 7 bridesmaids and my mother (yes she did all 9 of us by herself cause she is a rockstar) all loved their looks as well and could not say enough about Nicole as a make-up artist and person overall. We had the best time hanging out with her in our getting ready suite and she made each of us feel the most beautiful without overdoing it and not looking like ourselves. She can go as natural or glammed up as you request. Having my skin and make up look perfect was a top priority for my wedding and Nicole went above and beyond at every facial appointment and the week leading up to my wedding day to make sure we accomplished just that. BONUS**** She also does airbrush tanning and I last minute decided I wanted a little something extra to boost my overall look and we got my airbrush done with a trial before and the actual one two days before my wedding and I was so happy with that service as well! Nicole made me feel like the most beautiful bride and it really came across well because so many guests told me how beautiful I looked. Lastly, after my make up trial I decided to sleep in my make up (I know should never do this and I usually do not) but I wanted to see if it would stay all night long and let me tell ya, I woke up and my make up looked the same as when we applied it. On my actual wedding I did not have to touch up or check my make up at all, just reapplied some lipstick as my night went on feeling flawless thanks to her. She is a make-up magician and I love her! We keep regular facial appointments now. Book her!

Nicole is the best in the business

Nicole is an absolute dream to work with. She is kind, an excellent listener, and a master at her craft. She will make sure that you get exactly what you want on your wedding day. Nicole is incredibly easy to work with and made me feel stunning on my wedding day. Nicole also did my mom's hair and make up on my wedding day and she had never felt more beautiful. Not only is Nicole amazing with hair and make up, but she is also a master in skincare and taught me how to best prep my skin for the make up to look it's best. I would HIGHLY recommend Nicole, anyone would be lucky to work with her.

Hair & Make Up Artist

Long overdue revue! I can’t recommend Nicole enough! She was absolutely amazing! She took the time to make sure I liked the hair style and the make up choices. I don’t wear much make up generally and fully trusted her with each decision! I’ve already started recommending her to my friends who are engaged. She made me feel beautiful on my wedding day!
