Nikki trained at the London College of Fashion and has been a professional makeup artist for twelve years. She has worked in film, music, TV, and print, with names like Sophie Ellis Bextor, Sophie Dahl, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kim Katrall, Pink, Patsy Kensit, Duffy, Melanie Sykes – and many more. Nikki wanted to get into the industry from an early age. Her father was a fahion photographer and she recalls that ‘growing up I was fascinated with the transformation of the models coming out of the makeup room. I’d use paint brushes and mum’s makeup to try and recreate the look of the cover stars of the 80’s.’ Having progressed from raiding her mum’s makeup drawer, Nikki now gets to do it for real.
