Nicki was wonderful to work with! She has such a great personality and amazing talent! Nicki did my wedding makeup this September and it was flawless. Being an indian bride, I wanted a look that worked with both my white dress as well as my blue sari for the reception. With Nicki's work she covered all my scars and acne marks, which literally made my skin look flawless, but it felt so light, and was able to create a look that went with both outfits. I received a ton of compliments. She did my makeup around 10-11am and it lasted till midnight! And that's after hours of dancing. It was also very easy to set up a trial with her. She's very flexible. I am so happy I worked with her on my special day!

I had Nicki do my makeup for my indian wedding and reception August 8-9th 2014. She was such a professional and made me look gorgeous for all the events, and there were many events!
Most of all, she was so kind and patient with my stubborn mother who hates getting her make up done. I was so glad to see my mother look as beautiful as I know she is on my special day - that really was the best thing that Nicki did.
I actually knew Nicki waaay back in high school and I was so proud to be able to work with her on my big day. This girl is going places, I knew it back in high school.. and it is very clear now!
Book her quick, because she is definitely turning into a hot commodity!

She rocks! I was the bride, and she made me look amazing on both days. I got so many compliments and truly felt like a bride! She also took my outfits, style (via pictures and a Pinterest board), and hatred of makeup into account. I looked NATURAL and gorgeous! Thank you so much! I want to find other excuses to get my makeup done now! =)

Nicki is probably the one of the best makeup artists out there! She is very professional, accommodating and so sweet! I would definitely refer her to others who are looking to have amazing makeup!

I love Nicki!
I was the sister of the groom, so this is not a bridal review, but I was SO happy with the results. She showed up on time, stayed as long as needed to make sure my mom and I were satisfied and happy (no easy task with my mom). She was professional, personable and listened. We had 4 different looks that she completed for us over 3 days, and each day, I looked different from the last, which I LOVED. I had some pictures and colors that I wanted to use, and she went from there...My mom, who is critical, thought she looked "flawless and not very cake-y."
We got tons of compliments (maybe as much as the bride! whoops!) and a totally reasonable price.

Nicki was absolutely fabulous to work with! I had been planning to do my own makeup for my wedding, but as the date drew closer realized that I didn't have the time to devote to perfecting my skills to a point that I would be happy with the result.
I contacted Nicki about 2 weeks before the day. She was kind enough to squeeze me into her busy Saturday schedule (she told us she had come from getting people ready for a bridal shower and was headed to a wedding in the 'burbs immediately after finishing with us), but we never felt rushed or like we weren't getting her full attention.
We tried a couple of different ideas at my trial, and I was able to select one for the day of. My mother and sisters loved their results, and Nicki answered all of our questions about how to day-to-day makeup application. (I might have gone out and bought the foundation and brush she used on me afterwards because they were so good!) She also gave us a little of each of the lipsticks she used in a container that one of my sisters carried in her purse so we could reapply them before the reception.
Nicki was professional, kind, helpful, and super skilled. We loved all of the work she did and the advice she offered. I would definitely hire her for any of your makeup needs!
