BEAUTY
INDUSTRY

I have been working in the beauty industry for 8 years as a makeup artist and absolutely have so much love and passion for makeup artistry. I love that it allows me to let my creative side out. I would say I’ve always been a creative person but once I found makeup artistry, I just knew this was my thing. I love how every client is different, every face shape is different, and every appointment brings something different. I love connecting with people and providing a service that uplifts women and, in many ways, increases their confidence. I mean that in itself is job satisfaction. You get to be a part of so many important occasions in a women’s life from weddings to formals, graduations, etc you build a relationship with many of these women who trust you to make them look and feel beautiful, it really is a rewarding career.

BROW
ARTISTRY

I next became passionate about brow artistry a few years later when it rapidly grew into its own industry. I completed a few brow courses and then used the knowledge from them to create my own precision brow treatment. My clientele quickly grew, and I absolutely love working on people's brows. On brow day, they always say that it's the best day—and for good reason. Fresh brows can lift the eye area, give a more youthful appearance, and make your job as a makeup artist much easier. The two treatments go hand in hand. What I found with many of my brow clients was they needed a regrowth program, and, with that, they needed a brow product they could use between appointments to fill out sparse areas and keep the brows looking tidy.

BROW
PENCIL

I created my first product, a professional brow pencil, to meet the needs of my customers. Super pigmented, easy to use, long wearing, and affordable, my range has just grown from there. I’ve become massively interested in the natural skincare market recently. I love the sustainable and ethical ethos behind it, the benefits of natural skincare on the skin and the planet, and the idea of sustainable plant- based skincare that gets us back in touch with nature. My mission is to give my customers and clientele something fresh and different whilst educating them on the benefits of natural skincare.

EDUCATION
TRAINING

It has been an incredible journey to complete my level 3 education and training and this year, I'm so excited to finally see the Nicola McLaughlin Makeup Academy open its doors and welcome its first artistry students. Teaching and sharing the knowledge I have acquired over the years brings me an immense sense of fulfilment and purpose. From a young age, I was destined to be an entrepreneur, always looking to make something, create something, and make money from it – a funny story to tell indeed! However, my biggest accomplishment is being a mother to three wonderful kids – they are a big part of why I do what I do. My other purpose in life is to inspire fellow women to dream, to believe that you can achieve a life you can be proud of if you work hard and have faith in yourself.
