Philosophy: Armed with the belief that makeup is a powerful tool for individuality and empowerment, David Nicholas strives to help every client be the best version of themselves. He doesn’t want to make the 65-year-old woman look 30, but he does want to make the 65-year- old woman look amazing.

What’s Unique: His passion for his craft—and it is a craft, (just check out his portfolio!).

Insider Tip: Appointment needed! Nicholas operates by appointment only, but is more than willing to work with clients on days and timing, just make sure you reach out in advance.
