HOW LONG WORKING WITH MAKE UP FOR EVER?

Nicholas began his career with MAKE UP FOR EVER in 2010 as a Retail Manager for the Las Vegas Boutique and has, since then, travelled the country, managing the MAKE UP BAG REMIX TOUR, and in his new role as Assistant Managing Educator, Retail.

WHERE DID YOUR PASSION FOR MAKEUP COME FROM?

Nicholas grew up with an affinity for the arts and at university discovered his love for theatrical makeup. He began studying makeup in his free time after being inspired by Kevin Aucoin’s book “Making Faces” and Frida Kahlo’s paintings. With this knowledge he began experimenting and practicing on performance art students, and was ultimately  hired to work as the makeup artist for the school’s opera productions.
