They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Nicole Martin also believes it is in the hand of the makeup artist. Nicole is a freelance makeup artist from Portland, Oregon. She learned basic makeup application skills, in her teen years, by doing makeovers on her friends for prom, school formals and events.
Ready to turn her hobby into a professional career, she studied with renowned makeup artist Margaret Kimura at MKC Beauty Academy, in Hollywood, CA. Living in the fast world of LA, and learning from current makeup professionals, sharpened her artistry skills and techniques. Upon returning to Portland, Nicole has joined the local beauty and art scene. Working with local designers, models, brides and musicians, has refined her artistry skills to a broad level. Her goal is to give every one who sits in her chair the confidence to shine and feel their best. Nicole is available to travel on location, and welcomes you to view a portfolio of some of her work.
In her free time, Nicole enjoys the Portland life by flipping through fashion magazines in local coffee shops, eating yummy vegetarian food and attending concerts with her friends. She also enjoys crafting hair accessories, jewelry and sewing.
