"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working closely with Nicola since 2008 when she was the Head of Makeup for my television series The Jaquie Brown Diaries.

Most recently I have been using Nicola on a freelance basis to do my makeup for appearances on TV Three's The Project. She is able to create a high fashion look one week and a beauty look the next. I always feel I am in safe hands when she comes at me with her brushes! Apart from her wonderful work ethic and high skill level, Nicola is a beautiful person with a generous and gentle nature. She is a pleasure to be around and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for any future work."

"I am so grateful that I had someone of your calibre and vast experience to teach me. You are an incredibly talented artist who has the exceptional ability to teach others in an effortless manner. The professional insights that you incorporate to maximize a client’s experience are priceless, thank you for sharing these with me. Whilst they are second nature to you, they are also unique to you and it’s these, seemingly small elements, that set you apart!

I can’t wait until I have mastered what you have taught me, you have introduced me to an amazing industry and I have learnt far more than I ever expected. THANK YOU!"

"Over the past 5 years Nicola has been providing on going makeup service for my daughters as our personal makeup artist, for balls, special occasions etc.

We love using Nicola as she always leaves my girls feeling great and looking as beautiful as ever. She is professional, reliable and friendly and welcome in our home where she provides us with her mobile makeup service. I have also arranged lessons where Nicola has taught my girls how to apply their makeup in an age appropriate way, so they feel confident when left to their own devices!

Nicola has also provided her personal shopping service to ensure my eldest daughter purchased the perfect products for her for natural to evening makeup looks.

I would happily recommend Your Makeup Artist without hesitation, to any of my friends and associates looking for a fantastic makeup artist."

"I’m so glad Nicola was there on my big day – she made me and my bridesmaids feel beautiful. It was really important for me to have great bridal make up but still look like myself – just the best version of myself! She did a great job of highlighting my best features and hiding those little flaws from the photographer’s lens. I have recommended Nicola to all my friends and will definitely be using her services with Your Makeup Artist again for other special occasions."

"I used Nicola on my wedding day and we had a fabulous morning getting ready with the girls!!! Nothing was a problem for her, even traveling out to Drury for me. She was happy to meet up for a pre-wedding consult to make sure we had the same ideas and the MAC makeup she used was great, lasted all day and into the evening!! Thanks Nicola"
