Introspection | Self Awareness | Clarity
I started off wanting to do my own makeup due to a lack of self confidence. Through makeup, I developed an alter ego, Nicki Rouge. I could be bold, confident and completely sure of myself when wearing makeup. It was that exact feeling that I wanted to give the clients that sat in my makeup chair! I soon understood that when I washed my makeup off, I was the same person who had the same issues. I decided to invest in self work to truly improve my self awareness. Through introspection, I gained clarity and acceptance of who I truly am. I love myself the same whether natural or in full glam. Makeup is truly an enhancement and an outward expression of the beauty that lives inside me. This is the evolution of me and my brand. I hope you see the beauty inside of you!
