NICOLE’S PHILOSOPHY AS A MAKEUP ARTIST:
As women, I feel we pick ourselves apart from head to toe, yet we possess beauty in so many ways. I look at life as art and I am constantly trying to create innovative ideas to bring that art to life. When I work with women, I love being able to bring out beauty that they usually never see… highlight their features and collaborate with them in creating a look that embraces who they are. My goal is to make them look at themselves in a different way and to appreciate, themselves. Women make me feel good about what I do, they make it possible for me to be passionate about my career. I want us all to be able to feel better about ourselves, and admit that we are HOT sometimes! There are no rules to makeup only guidelines, no limitations. You must be open, and willing to explore everything. You will be amazed what you find, and what you learn about yourself.” – Nicole Palermo
