How it all Began
As a young girl, Nicole was fascinated by makeup. Never allowed to wear any, in her eyes makeup was a shrine of colorful forbidden fruit. "My mother only allowed me to wear clear lip gloss, and then finally on my first day of high school, at the age of fifteen, she let me wear a brown lipstick. It was as if the heavens opened up and rays of light shone down on me. Ok, a little dramatic, but I was super excited to wear colored makeup for the first time! Even if it was just a plain brown lipstick.”
Then and there Nicole knew that makeup is where her passion lied and didn't want it to be just a hobby but a career. After several years of being discouraged from going into cosmetology in College; Nicole finally said enough is enough, tuned out all the negativity and went after her dreams. "I was always told that makeup is just a hobby, that I will never make money from it and that I needed to find a real career to support myself and future. Although it took some time, I am glad that I followed my heart."
Nicole enrolled in the Chellsey School of Aesthetics in Toronto, where she earned her certificate of Makeup Artistry upon graduating. Being one of the top skilled Makeup Artist in the class, she was then invited to take part in her very first Toronto fashion show. "I was over joyed, shocked and humbled, when they chose me to do editorial style makeup for this Toronto fashion show. I will never forget all the excitement and the rush that comes along with a fast paced fashion show.
After that wonderful experience, Nicole went on to freelance, offering makeup services for special events and commercial clients. "I had a vision of what I wanted and began to develop my business slowly. I changed my business name three times before I decided to use my government name; I then became Nicole Webster Makeup. I continued to develop my skill in makeup artistry and learned new techniques along the way. Not only do I offer Makeup services, but now hair styling and skin care as well." Nicole went on to work with countless bridal clients, local photographers, designers and movie producers in Calgary, AB where she now resides. Her love for makeup as well as writing, prompted her to become Beauty Editor of the Nicole Webster Makeup blog, a lifestyle, beauty and fashion blog: which then blossomed into how-to, educational videos on YouTube. You can find some of Nicole's work and writings featured in online magazines. "I never stop creating goals and dreaming big dreams. There's always room to grow, to inspire and I encourage all of you to follow your heart and go after what it is that you want."
In addition to running her company, Nicole continues to pursue her craft by creating looks for local fashion shows and designers. Making brides and their bridal parties beautiful for their big day, providing services for corporate & special events and offer other services such as makeup lessons, facials and so much more.
Nicole has a passion for young people, and is working on creating a program for young teen girls. "A young girl’s self-esteem and self-worth is very important, and a lot of these girls today, has a very negative look on that. I want to restore their confidence and let them know they are beautiful just the way they are."
Nicole continues to climb the ladder in hopes of impacting many lives and reaching out through big name publications and media.
What does confidence mean to Nicole?
"Confidence is being secure in who you are and what you are worth. When you find yourself and can truly love and appreciate your mind, body and soul for what it is. No one can take that from you and you won't let anyone treat you less than.
Nicole believes makeup is just another accessory, like earrings, hair clips or a designer bag. You wear them to add pizzazz to your look. Makeup makes you look and feel like a more confident, more beautiful you; with easy to use cosmetics in a wide range of shades, textures and colors. You too can enhance your natural beauty and reveal a radiance that shines inside and out.
