Hi, I’m Nicola. An internationally published, cruelty free hair & makeup artist based in Yorkshire. I create soft, romantic hairstyles and classic traditional or flawless airbrush makeup perfect for brides. Makeup for your wedding day is completely different to everyday makeup. It should perform at its best in all different types of lighting and weather conditions. I regularly research and update my kit, ensuring I use only the best cruelty free hair and makeup brands suitable for this type of application.
I love getting to know about your plans and work with you to create a look that is timeless and unique to you. I will be with you every step of the way to guide you through the process. My aim is to create the perfect look for your day providing you with a relaxing and enjoyable experience that is tailored to you and your bridal party.
I am known for my relaxed, calming manner on busy wedding days and going above and beyond for my lovely brides. I adore what I do and feel so incredibly lucky and privileged to be able to share in a bride’s big day.
We met Nicola last year and I knew immediately that I wanted her to do my wedding makeup. Not only does she do beautiful and natural makeup but she only uses cruelty free products also which was a massive selling point for me. We all absolutely loved our trial with Nicola and were even happier with the makeup that she did for us on the wedding day. We all received lots of compliments for our makeup and in particular for simply looking like a better version of ourselves rather than being unrecognisable. Nicola is such a lovely person; she was happy to be on the other end of the phone for me when I needed advice and provided so much support on the morning of the wedding that went above and beyond her role as our makeup artist.Emma
Nicola was a pleasure to have in our home on our wedding day. She gave fab advice and worked with all four of us to create the looks we wanted. She met with me initially to discuss what I was looking for and to look through her portfolio which I really appreciated and gave me a chance to get to know Nicola. She then came for a trial day and spent more than enough time working with us on what we wanted for the day. Nicola went above and beyond for us and was such a calming influence on my wedding day. As well as a fantastic make up artist, Nicola is an all round lovely person who loves her work and speaks passionately about it. I would definitely book Nicola again without hesitation! I cannot say thank you enough!Ashley
I really wanted cruelty free makeup for my wedding day which is why I found Nicola. After our first meeting I was made to feel at ease about the whole process, Nicola was really easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable. We worked together at our trial to make sure my make up was what I wanted and on the day Nicola had listened to everything and did my make up perfectly as well as helping me feel calm before the ceremony. I was very pleased I’d booked her. Marie
