"When people say that they can tell that makeup is my passion, I quickly correct them and say, 'EMPOWERING WOMEN is my passion.'"
- Monica Nicole
Raised in the small, but growing town of Sumter, SC, Monica always enjoyed DIY at home pampering with face masks made of fruits found in the kitchen and foot spas for an at home pedicure. Excelling in leadership roles in school and organizations, it's no wonder that life led Monica to a path of entrepreneurship in the Beauty Industry. Monica obtained her massage therapy license in 2014, her esthetics license in 2016, and is on track to earning her esthetics instructor license by summer 2019. Throughout the years, Monica has gained experience offering massage and skin care services in the private and medical spa settings, catering to women and men of varying walks of life.
Although makeup began as a personal hobby, Monica quickly recognized the demand and began offering a wide range of services locally. Fast forward to 2017, the opportunity to expand came about and in true Monica fashion, she seized the moment and spontaneously moved to Charlotte, NC. Now residing in the Queen City, Monica enjoys providing bridal and beauty makeup services to a diverse clientele. Her most popular service, the Monica Nicole Signature, manifests Monica's signature style with a makeup application focused primarily on flawless skin, manicured brows, and lashes that add a cherry on top. In addition to providing premium services for brides and bridal parties, Monica's beauty clients use her services for television appearances, pageants, photoshoots, performances, speaking events, and other special occasions. When Monica isn't providing makeup services, she can be found conducting 1 on 1 makeup lessons, attending networking events, or acting as a guest speaker at local events.
It is Monica's hope that every women views self care and self empowerment, by whatever means, as a necessity and commits to taking care of self first.
