Nicole K. Lundy is a certified professional freelance makeup artist, specializing in beauty and fashion makeup. Her training and experience includes: New York Fashion Week, New Jersey Beauty& Fashion Week, events, weddings, TV & photo shoots, and red carpet occasions.
SKINCARE is the foundation of all of Nicole’s beauty programs, services, classes, and workshops. From a teenager, she struggled with uber-sensitive skin. It always seemed to be reacting to something no matter what degree of precaution was taken. This problem still persists. When Nicole decided to go full-time into the field of beauty she also decided to create a skincare line that would keep her skin and the skin of her clients healthy, rejuvenated and free from any signs of stress and aging with a soothing formula. Nicole had the name ‘Ne`lani’ reserved for her first-born daughter but soon discovered that it would be a perfect name choice for her burgeoning age-balancing skincare line. In translation Ne’Lani means ‘calming and balancing.’ As if divinely orchestrated, the name Ne`lani will be shared by both her skincare line and her first-born daughter.
Nicole earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Oakwood University (formerly Oakwood College) in Huntsville, Alabama. From graduating in 2005, Nicole worked at two Fortune 50 companies, Verizon Investment Management Co. and Dow Jones & Company, Inc. before leaving the field of Finance for good in 2009 and launching her beauty business. Although, Nicole’s corporate life was short-lived, she was very happy to leave the ‘ugly’ life behind and go into beauty.
Nicole has also been featured on MSNBC, eHow.com and in the Huffington Post Style. She will be releasing her first book – Beauty.Brains.Brilliance in 2013.
