Hello BEAUTIES & Gents! My name is Nicole Palermo and I have been a Baltimore Maryland makeup artist for 24 years. A true city girl at heart! I love art, and I am open to others ideas. My personality is extremely outgoing, and I treat people with respect. Thinking out of the box is what I prefer, and enjoying the experience. I like to take risks with my work, that is when the true magic happens. I embrace, beauty and I also love projects that are strange, Weird or just plain odd.
So let me tell you a little bit about what I do, I run a Pro Artistry business, and I have had my business now for 14 years. What I consider to be my security income are my weddings/Boudoir Shoots. I book 100+ events a year. So working with beautiful brides, who can be a bit stressed, has taught me patience. This Year I hired a Pro Team to work for me, amazing artist's that I have personally trained with MAC pro products and Cutting edge Hair stylist's!
I worked for MAC for 8 years, and currently freelance for the company as well. When it comes to makeup, I embrace every artistic experience I can! As you will see by my port, I do a little bit of everything. 7 yrs ago I started a Boudoir business, I create the looks, wardrobe styling, and sometimes the set design, then I hire the photographer for the shoot. I am very skilled in posing my clients and I know the angles that work for a woman's body. My clients LOVE IT!
ABOUT ME: A few other important things to know about me, I love people(that are kind), I am very professional & have good energy to bring to a set, I am ALWAYS on time or early, I supply everything needed for an amazing shoot and have a kit with only the best products, and supplies. I am confidant and driven, however I do not have a big EGO.
FEES: If you are interested in working with me on a project, please write me. Tell me all about your idea, your vision and then we can discuss everything in detail. I am always eager to embrace a new idea by another artist. My rates are $100 an hour. Most of the time I require at least a 4 hour day. I also charge travel (.54 per mile to and from the location) For a full day rate, I always work out a price and I am sensitive to budget needs. Do not be AFRAID to ask, I will not be offended by what your budget is for a project. If you need a hair stylist, I will be able to book that for you and go over costs involved.
TFP: please don't hesitate to ask me. Most of the time I get as excited about your project as you are.. something new and fresh, that I can create, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! There are times I have rejected an idea, but only because I have not felt comfortable with the content. I like ODD, even bizarre but some things are just not something I want to be involved in.. I will be very upfront with you always.
Even though my schedule is a bit insane at times, when I know about something in advance, I can book it. Once it is on my book, it is etched in stone. Remember I run a Freelance business so I have flexibility, as long as I have time to plan it. I also have days during the week that I can shoot.
