Nikkie’s passion and love for makeup came out of an unexpected corner back in 2008.Feeling sick and not too well, Nikkie spent the weekend in bed watching a ”The Hills” weekend break on MTV. Completely inspired by the gorgeous looks of Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Audrina Patridge she began to search for ”The Hills Makeup” on YouTube. (…)

When things started getting really big for Nikkie, she got contacted by Makeup Artist Pascale Tesser: A makeup and hair artist who had done lots of shows and photoshoots, and was now teaching fashion makeup at B Academy, Amsterdam. (…)

In Fall 2010 Nikkie decided to follow the Makeup Course by Pascale Tesser at B Academy. A tough course, where she learned everything about professional makeup for photoshoots and shows. Ending up having a good friendship with Pascale Tesser, Nikkie decided to stay close to Pascale and assist her for shows and photoshoots.

Later that year Nikkie also followed the Hair on the Set: Level 1 Course at B Academy. This to be a a perfect all-round artist who could get booked for any job.

In 2011 she joined Pascale Tesser’s agency called Colourfool Agency. With Colourfool Agency, Nikkie has worked on some great projects like Hollands & Benelux’s Next Top Model, Miljoenenjacht & The Face. She worked for spreads in magazines like Marie Claire, Linda, Talkies and Fashionista.

Horror TAG

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN MOVIE?

220px-Rec_poster 220px-Carrieposter 220px-Halloween_cover 215px-Hellraiser_poster images (1) American_Horror_Story_Asylum_DVD The_Shining_poster 220px-Martyrs_tp01  220px-Psycho_(1960)

The toughest question right at the start… I assume that Halloween movie here refers to any kind of horror movie?  I’ve seen so many horror flics over the years that I probably will forgot about some that I really enjoyed… So where shall I begin?

The Shining is certainly in my list of favourite horror movies, a classic that doesn’t need gore to be creepy. One of the most gruesome ones I’ve seen must be Martyrs. I really think The Descent is scary, especially because it is so dark and you kind of feel claustrophobic watching it.

In terms of vampire movies, I really enjoyed watching 30 Days of Night, although the story might not be the most original one, the vampires are actually scary and the imagery is amazing. Rec is a pretty good Spanish zombie movie if you ask me.

The first Hellraiser is a must watch, the sequels I didn’t really enjoy. You can never go wrong with some of the classics, like the first Halloween movie, Carrie, Psycho and so on…

And when it comes to horror series, my favourite is American Horror Story Season 2: Asylum. Very disturbing.

Well, as you can see, I can’t really decide on one…

2. IF YOU WERE IN A HORROR MOVIE HOW FAR WOULD YOU GET?

Well, I think thats a bit of a stupid question to be honest, because it would really depend in which movie you are in, right? Let’s put it that way: I’ve watched so many horror movies that I would hope I have enough knowledge how to get rid of any kind of monster, zombie or supernatural being to survive the movie. 😉

3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY OF HALLOWEEN?

Where I come from we don’t celebrate Halloween, so it is only in recent years that I took part in Halloween parties, but only because I really like to dress up with scary costumes.

4. YOUR BEST/WORST HALLOWEEN COSTUME?

halloween

I quite like the one I wore last year. It wasn’t any movie character or anything in particular, but I wore a black dress and head scarf, so I guess it looked a bit like a nun. Then I put in some white contacts and used a lot of fake blood for bloody tears.

5. HOW DO YOU GET INTO THE HALLOWEEN SPIRIT?

Usually by decorating the flat, though this year I haven’t done anything like that. If I go to a party I would also consider doing some food that is decorated scarily.

6. FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN DECORATION?

Skulls. I used to have really nice fairy lights with little skulls on it, but I would certainly put up some spiderwebs as well and orange napkins, that kind of thing.

7. NAME ONE UNUSUAL THING THAT YOU’RE AFRAID OF

I guess the fact they I don’t particularly like display dummies is rather unusual?

WHICH IS SCARIER?
8. VAMPIRES OR ZOMBIES

Hmm, I think I’ll have to go with vampires, because I always loved watching vampire movies (30 Days of Night, Let The Right One In) and series (Buffy, True Blood), though there are some really amazing zombie movies out there as well.

9. WEREWOLVES OR GHOSTS

Werewolves! I do prefer them over any ghost movie or story. I’ve recently watched Dog Soldiers, which was really good and more for a classic An American Werewolf in London is really worth seeing.

10. CREEPY DOLLS OR CREEPY CLOWNS?

270px-1572 it

That’s a tough one… After watching It by Stephen King I’ve never looked at clowns the same way again. I do have this weird things about dolls though and display dummies creep the shit out of me, so I think I will go for creepy dolls here… 🙂

11. DO YOU BELIEVE IN GHOSTS?

No, I don’t.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

One of the channels that made me start watching makeup tutorials on Youtube was the one from the beautiful Heather, also known as Sokolum. When she began her videos, she was still working as an accountant and used the channel to share her love for colourful makeup. By now, she is working as a makeup artist with an interest in special effects makeup, which is reflected in her channel. One can see that her skills developed a lot over time, but I still enjoy watching her old stuff. If you like colours, definitely go and check her out!

7 deadly sins of makeup tag

1) GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

I guess most expensive that must be either my YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain Lip (about £22.50/6ml) followed by the Lancome Rouge in Love lipstick (£21/4.2ml). Cheapest on the other hand I think must be the MUA nail polish (for £1.00/6.2ml) I own and the 2True Twist’n’Line Eye Definer (£1.99).

2) WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

I would say I have a love/hate relationship with Sleek’s Eau La La Liners, as I really like their concept, but the two that I have are faulty and very hard to use as the lead comes out. Nevertheless, I try using them once in a while, as I like the colours that I bought.

I like the Catrice products, which are reasonably priced and often of good quality. Only problem is that in Scotland these products are not available. In particular I think here of the Hollywood Fabolous Fourties Limited Edition, where I made my mum hunt for it and send me the products. I have to say I do not regret it, as all of the products she sent me are part of my favorite ones, like the blush that I showed in the Colours of the Rainbow Tag.

3) GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products? 

I really like the smell of my Alverde loose powders and my MUA lipgloss. Generally I am not a big fan of products that smell very intense, especially if it is a very artificial smell. I once bought a lipgloss by Calvin Klein and I could not stand it for a second on my lips.

4) SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Lipgloss! I hate re-applying it and generally simply prefer a lipstick over a gloss, so my little collection just waits for its time to shine. 😉

image

5) PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

I would say lipstick or concealer. I know many answer with mascara, but I honestly could well live without it, although I enjoy wearing it for a more dramatic look. I do have rather dark under eye circles so I always use concealer, but on the other hand I love how putting on lipstick can change the way you feel and look so quickly. I think I would choose lipsticks as it gives me more of a boost and I am always looking forward to choosing a colour for the day.

image

6) LUST: Which item is at the top of your beauty wish list?

I would like to try out some of the Hourglass products, especially the Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick and the Ambient Lighting Powder. They are not the cheapest products and as I don’t really need them I successfully retained myself from buying them for now. I would not mind receiving them as a gift though. 🙂

7) ENVY: What makeup product/look is great on others but not on yourself?

Well I generally don’t really care if others would say something suits me or not. I wear what I feel like and express myself through makeup. Personally  I think blonde hair doesn’t really suit me (and yes, I’ve tried), so does that count?image

Swedish blogger Viola from Gothenburg is blogging about makeup and a bit of fashion since 2008. She has absolutely gorgeous looks, and as she is a vegan, she also tries to review cruelty-free beauty products on her blog. Her looks vary from very natural ones to more dramatic and vampy styles, she really does cover the whole range. I think it is also worth checking our her old blog for some inspiring looks. Once in a while she is posting videos on Youtube as well.
