It has been 5 years since my wedding and every time I see my bridal pictures, I feel so happy with my decision to get my makeup done from Nikki. She is a true professional and gave me the exact look I wanted. When I took a trail makeup done, I knew that she is going to be the perfect choice for my bridal makeup. I was looking for soft natural tone makeup and Nikki made sure that both my looks are natural toned yet different from each other. If you are looking for a flawless makeup let be for any occasion, Nikki should be your choice and I am sure you won’t regret.

When I booked a makeup trial with Nikki I knew I had made the perfect decision. She was extremely patient and took hours understanding the look I wanted and trying on every shade possible to get the right look! I was very particular about having a no-makeup and a natural look for my wedding. It is very difficult to find a makeup artist who understands that, and thank god i found Nikki! She was perfect!

I approached Nikki for my wedding make up and I have regrets about my decision. Nikki was professional, experienced and nice to work with ! Loved that she was punctual, realistic and totally on point with the look I wanted - all natural but wonderfully highlighted. Thanks so much Nikki for giving me pictures to cherish for a lifetime ☺️

Nikki is amazing at what she does. I was very particular about having a very natural look for my wedding and she did a fabulous job with my make up. She is extremely professional and very approachable. Along with being creative she is very technically sound with Colors, lighting, make up contents and composition. We did a trial make up to understand my needs. Excellent quality make up was used even during the trial. I have skin allergy and she was very careful and considerate while using the products. She also gave me tips to work on my dark circles naturally. Highly recommended artist if you wanna look elegant and classy. Thank you Nikki for making me look so pretty on my big day.

Nikki is a thorough professional, pays attention to details, knows exactly what the client wants. I wanted to keep my look fresh & light for one event and a bit heavy for the second look She did wonders for both the looks. She is good at enhancing your natural beauty and doesn’t make you look like an artificial painted doll. I looked the better version of me in pictures and in real. I felt so confident with the work as it was exactly how I wanted. No exaggeration here! If you want to look real yet elegant and beautiful and not over the top (cakey makeup) then Nikki is the one you can rely on. I can vouch for it:)

I wanted to look like "me" at my wedding - with my best highlighted and my not-so-best covered. Nikki is a magician - she did exactly that for me! I searched for over two months and interacted with dozens of artists - hoping to find someone who was dependable, professional, no-nonsense, believed in natural looking make-up, understood that make-up should enhance one's beauty and not change what one looks like... and voila! Fate smiled on me and I met Nikki! From the first meeting until the trial and D-day itself, Nikki was absolutely in control, responsive, reassuring and outstandingly capable. Of the many things I had to manage in the run up to my wedding, one thing I did not stress about at all was how I would look (the main deal!). Nikki insisted on a trial several weeks in advance and gave it her all to figure out the best look. This ensured I looked my best on a milestone day of my life and the gazillion compliments that came my way stand testament! Brides; if you are looking for someone to make you look the best version of you - please don't hesitate and contact Nikki immediately! A fan for life and am certainly coming back to Nikki for all my make-up needs in the future!

Calm, Uber Talented and an Absolute Perfectionist! So glad I booked Nikki for my hair and make up. She's highly experienced, open to feedback and provides sensible advice but always ensures the client is comfortable. Her calm and friendly attitude made everything really easy and stress free on both days. From a nude look to a girl-next-door look and eventually to a regal bride, she ensured I looked perfect for each and every occasion. She is a pleasure to have around and I would highly recommend her. Thank you Nikki!!
