Chanelle Nicole began her career in Miami, Florida where she graduated from the International Makeup Career Center in 2008 with her diploma in Makeup Artistry. Her training quickly led to many oppurtunities such as working on the set of the Telemundo original movie, "Gabriel" and as a personal artist to Louis Aguirre in association with Miss Teen Florida 2009. It was always her dream to work for the internationally renowned cosmetics company, M.A.C. and in 2011 her dream came true. Chantelle acquired many tips, tricks and beauty secrets right from the hands of some of the most respected artists in the industry. Utilizing the programs M.A.C. had to offer, Chantelle obtained four makeup certifications including lesson and technique training. With these certifications she has gone on to teach various M.A.C. Technique classes along with personal in-home makeup lessons to many of her clients.
"Teaching is something that comes second nature to me. I really enjoy being able to share special and helpful techniques that make the everyday woman feel like a makeup artist!"
After two years of working full-time alongside some of the top artists of M.A.C., Chantelle's career began to take off landing her the prestigious spot as key makeup artist to the beautiful dancers of the Miami City Ballet alongside talented photographer Alberto Oviedo. Her connections expanded exponentially as she began working for Goat Rodeo Productions and Miami Swim Week. She also was fortunate enough to work with music video director Neiver Alvarez, Simply The Best Magazine and many talented South Florida professional photographers.
Chantelle currently operates out of Buffalo, NY where she has honed her beauty skills and is primarily focused on wedding parties and styled shoots. She has beautified weddings all across South Florida and has now brought her passion for bridal beauty to the Northeast region and even into Canada.
"Making a bride feel her most beautiful on her wedding day is so indescribably special that it reminds me each time why I love what I do."
While staying busy in the wedding circle, Chantelle enjoys booking various freelance jobs with photographers, creative directors, modeling agencies and personal clients. She is available for travel nationwide and internationally.
