" The relationship between a makeup artist and their client is very intimate. They are up close and personal and it can often feel intimidating. Nikki Strachan is by far one of the most warm welcoming, talented, easy to work with, fun to be around, professional artists I’ve ever worked with. I can spot a “Nikki face” (a face that she has painted) from a line up. She is not only incredibly good at her job, she truly knows how to enhance your natural beauty. I have never left a session with Nikki feeling less than my best. Her energy and magic is truly an experience everyone should witness. "

“If there is a magic to amazing makeup and Nikki is the grande wizard. Getting your makeup done requires a kind of trust and intimacy that isn’t always easy to attain. Nikki Strachan makes it easy - not only through her gentle and calm personality but also through her madly versatile makeup wizardry.” - Cynthia Loyst / The Social Host
" I really can’t say enough good things about Nikki and her amazing ability to make me look and feel my best! She is a true artist and has such a range in style making her the perfect makeup artist for any occasion and any face.
Nikki’s ability to really listen to your tastes and makeup preferences means that, whether you like a lighter or heavier hand, or trendy or more classic makeup, she will deliver the most amazing results.
When Nikki does my makeup, I never have to worry about it budging. From 7 o’clock in the morning to when I wash my face at night, my makeup never slips. For me, she strikes the perfect balance by giving me a long-lasting face without making me feel like I’m wearing makeup.
If you’re looking for the perfect cat eye and bold red lip, Nikki is your girl! Basically, she’s a total dream!"
