Nicole has done my makeup a number of times, so she is familiar with my temperamental skin. This year I experienced an extreme allergic reaction, which caused my eyes to swell and my skin on my face to burn. When the recommendations from dermatologist and allergist did not... Read More work, I immediately thought of Nicole. She was able to recommend a lotion and natural oils that helped soothe the burn and repair my skin. She also taught me a skin care routine, how to apply makeup on top of the oils, and recommended makeup that works well with extremely dry skin. I have experienced several similar allergic reactions since, but the oils and lotion always help to expedite my recovery. You know you're in good hands when your makeup artist's advice trumps your dermatologist's!

After loving the work that Nicole did for my wedding, I decided to schedule a personal shopping session and makeup lesson with her. It was fantastic! Nicole helped me find products that were better for my skin type to improve coverage, and also suggested some new great... Read More products I wouldn't have picked out. The lesson was super helpful as well. I learned how to apply concealer, foundation and an undereye concealer with a natural finish that doesn't feel over done but also looks flawless. She helped me develop a daily routine that doesn't take too long but makes me look incredibly healthy and pretty. I highly recommend doing this with her, especially if you have trouble picking out products or knowing how to effectively apply them. Thanks Nicole!

My sister and I were the fortunate recipients of beautiful makeup at the talented and sure hands of Nicole Cudzilo. I was the Matron of Honor, older than most for this auspicious position. Nicole made my sister into the most beautiful bride! She was prompt, kind, courteous,... Read More listened and was clearly skilled! My sister being younger than myself, looked amazing! Nicole was thoughtful in her work, used the perfect colors to make my sisters features and skin glow. She kept the timing perfect for this special event and it was never rushed- a hard balance for sure! There was easy and joyful talking and laughing which put us all at ease. When it was my turn for makeup I was surprised that not only a younger woman could be so beautiful, but so could I. With artistic talent, Nicole preformed the same magic on me as well. I have never seen myself look so pretty. I learned Nicole is an artist with skills in photography, drawing and modeling. She has been able to take her specialties and use all of the important aspects of color and design to make each person look their absolute best. In the end we felt as if we were a prized, loved piece of art she skilfully crafted by hand. If all this was not enough, Nicole's easy, pleasant,relaxed and fun personality along with her strong interpersonal skills in listening made us truly feel special; like we were old friends or family. In the many years of contracting people for different jobs, I have learned that I could find talented people, OR people that were prompt OR courteous. But I know it is rare to find all the things one wants in one person. Nicole fits that bill! She is all one could ever ask for in a makeup artist- skill, talent,responsibility and personality! It just doesn't get better than that! Thank you, Nicole for sharing in my sister's special day! Thank you for being much more than a makeup artist! We will call on you again for all of our special engagements! I am pleased to let the world know all about you! You are a treasure and I know that others will feel the same about you once they have worked with you!
