Welcome to Maui Makeup by Holly Nicole.

I am an exceptional makeup artist with a great eye for style and beauty. I have over 18+ years experience specializing in weddings, special occasions and photo shoots.

My professional training started at the Lu Ross Academy in California where I learned everything from basic make-up, to tv/film and photography, to special effects and airbrushing.

My beauty journey continued to flourish after being hired at Nordstrom in Seattle. There I was trained as a beauty stylist perfecting my knowledge in all the cosmetic brands Nordstrom had to offer. I had the pleasure of working with my favorite luxury brands while traveling the country with Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL), Chanel, Dior and more.

I was also enlisted to work special events, conduct seminars, and teach beauty classes at Nordstrom, Niemen Marcus, Saks and even at private estates.  Throughout my makeup career I always continued to work weddings, my true joy! I find so much honor in creating the perfect look for such a special and memorable day.

I am homegrown on Maui and have been fascinated with beauty since a very young age. I am well versed in the locations on the island and make it my priority to encompass the Aloha spirit in my daily life, especially my work.
