Nicole Antionette has been expressing her creativity through makeup for the past twelve years. She began to explore her craft as an apprentice under one of Toronto’s top makeup artist Shauna Llewellyn who introduced her to the world of music video, television commercial and editorial makeup. She has since then flourished and expanded her skill and knowledge of the art, specializing in fashion and beauty makeup. She has had various opportunities to work in the fashion industry doing makeup in large scale fashion shows such as Fashion Cares and working with various designers in Toronto’s Fashion week. Using makeup as an art form she has taken her skill from the face and extended it to the body doing body painting for such events as Jeanne Becker’s FQ Magazine launch and M.A.C’s deck of cards.
As a freelance artist Nicole enjoys doing makeup for weddings as well as creative photo shoots. Her main philosophy about cosmetics is that “Every woman has their own sense of style and beauty. Makeup can only enhance what already exists. Trends come and go but your beauty remains your own...and a little mascara never hurt anyone!”Welcome Nicole! Stay tuned for more from her!
