Hey girl,

I'm guessing you're currently on my site because you are looking for a makeup artist for your big day or maybe you're trying to help your friend find one? Whatever the reason may be, I am so happy you're here!

All of my work is based on the art of making you look radiant. Makeup is truly a form of art, and it took years of practice before I decided to take that leap, and start my own business in 2020. Since then, I have been transforming my clients in the greater DMV area into absolutely stunning art. I am passionate about what I do, and love to spread my love for makeup and cosmetics to all of my clients.

Still trying to decide if I'm the right fit? I know it can be stressful choosing one makeup artist when you have hundreds of options...

Here's a little bit more about me so you can get to know me better! 

Let's see....I was born in Greece and in 2006 my family and I moved to Maryland. Watching Hannah Montana with subtitles and listening to country music is how I learned to speak English fluently.

Fast forward to 2013, that's when I started getting into makeup (thanks to YouTube). It was a brand new world for me but so fun and exciting. I got a job at Ulta and went to Von Lee School of Aesthetics and received my certificate fall 2014. After Ulta, I worked for Too Faced cosmetics, COTY and Tarte cosmetics.  I also started attending many convention shows in both New York and LA, and in fall of 2018 I had the opportunity to work for New York Fashion Week. Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 I also worked at NYFW.


I am also certified by Mario Dedivanovic. I attended his Masterclass in June 2019 in New York and received my certificate. Mario is one of the biggest makeup artists in the world and works with many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian. I was SO PUMPED to take his class and meet him. (He took the selfie, not a bad angle right?!)

I absolutely love traveling to my clients, spending time with them and doing their makeup. Weddings are so fun to me and it's always an honor being part of such a special day. I have been working in this industry since 2013, and have been lucky enough to do makeup for so many amazing clients. As an experienced Makeup Artist, I cater to clients’ needs, whether they want a natural look or a more dramatic look. No matter what, I always make sure my clients are happy!

Feel better now about whether or not you'd like to work with me?! I hope so and I promise you won't be disappointed!

I am a very hard working, dedicated, friendly and passionate individual. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your big day,  please contact me I'd love to work with you and your party.


So happy you're here!


Nikoletta with Mario!
