From Nico-

"I am a Makeup Artist who loves to be creative even if that means challenging myself. I have been obsessed with makeup since I was 13, rocking my Electric Eel blue eyeshadow from MAC and some fierce brows! So naturally I went to school for Esthetics to learn more about skin and makeup. Being good at makeup is not all that matters. Its about your face shape, the size of your lid space, how well you take care of your skin, your skin tone and beyond. I want to help every individual that sits in my chair not only feel and look their best but understand that I base each look off of the individual. What is best for you.

There are so many factors that I take into account with each beauty sitting in my chair.

Beyond that, with everything going on in the world through this pandemic I have taken extra courses on sanitation and Covid 19 to keep us all protected as best as possible! I want both of us to feel safe about creating magic. Please see below for my certifications."
