My name is Brandy Nicolas, I am a Freelance Makeup Artist, Amongst other things. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO., where I had a fun and creative childhood. A social butterfly in the eyes of many, but I’ve always been secretly shy. Those closest to me will agree that I put on a very convincing portrayal of an extrovert. I’m positive that growing up in the visual and performing arts school system influenced and cultivated my deep affection for the arts, so naturally, I am an advocate for keeping the arts in schools.
During my time in St. Louis, I contributed to a handful of successful Image undertakings, and assisted in launching a new and thriving promotional company, which brings me to present day. Despite my devotion to family and friends, I decided to try my hand in sunny L.A., LaLa Land, The City of Angels; a melting pot of creativity. I have so many things I want to do, and Los Angeles just made the pursuit seem attainable. Now I'm back in Chicago. The city I fell in love with and lived for a couple of years. When I think about it, seems my goal may really be to take over the world lol.
Nevertheless, I’m here and I’m ready to see where it takes me!
I am the Makeup Artist, the Hairstylist, and the Wardrobe Stylist for the shoots in my portfolio. I would love to work with anyone who's up for pushing lines with creative/editorial concepts and beauty.
