BEHIND THE BRUSHES
Looking for a Makeup Artist for your special day? Need an HMUA for a music video, filmed production or editorial shoot? My name is Nipona, I've been in this industry for over 14 years and I love my job! UK is my home, but I've had the pleasure of working in the USA; video work, celeb makeovers & TV amongst other things. I've built up tons of hair & makeup experience through the years and have seen many happy clients. Until recently I worked at MAC Cosmetics as a Retail Artist and as part of their Pro Artist Team where I got to work London Fashion Week for a second time! Most recently I worked on 'The Grinch Musical!' which was filmed for Tv during the pandemic.
I'm based in the South of England but will travel to where I am needed. I qualified through Delamar Academy, next to Ealing Studios in London. I offer Hair, Makeup, FX and from time to time a little Henna. A lot of clients worry about an artist's experience with skin tones, please take a look at my portfolio, your mind will be put at ease when you see that skin tones are not an issue for me. I cover all types of makeup application from Bridal beauty to Theatrical & Casualty Makeup.
My passion for creativity, artistic flair and an eye for detail is what led me to become a Makeup Artist, I'm not ashamed to say I'm a perfectionist! I take a lot of pride in my work, I strive for perfection and customer satisfaction. I do not rely on retouch, I like my work to be as perfect as it can be! I always try to stay current with trends & learn new techniques, my skills get better with every year that goes by. Makeup was always the only thing I truly wanted to do, so I took that leap and here I am now. I am a friendly, passionate & professional artist, I work well alone or as part of a team.
