Three decade Makeup Maven turned Founder of Nicole Bryl®, New York
More than a makeup artist, Nicole Bryl is the person her clients turn to again and again for friendship, confidentiality and a guiding hand behind their image, making them look and feel their most beautiful and supported. It’s no wonder Nicole is one of the most sought after makeup artists in the world and now combined with her signature Vitamin C, 4 Minute Anti-Aging Skincare Treatment (a daily 4 Step Method skin prep which she invented in her kitchen and which is now loved and used by all of her clients before she applies their makeup), her subjects are left with a beauty experience that is unmatchable.
Whether it be an inauguration, inaugural ball, state visit, national convention, red carpet, television appearance or fashion spread, Nicole’s unique touch can always be recognized.
Under the gaze of her nurturing and undivided attention, both skin and makeup designs for celebrity and society beauties alike, blend together for a scene worthy of framing.
By age 14, already excelling in acting and painting at the Rudolf Steiner Waldorf School in New York City, Nicole’s passion for creative expression soon translated into the form of being a makeup artist.
By 16, Nicole traveled to Paris and met there with legendary behind the scenes fashion photographer Roxanne Lowit who invited Nicole to trail her work backstage at the Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix shows. Having had the honor on this trip to spend close amounts of time with Paloma Picasso and designer Christian Lacroix, Nicole’s creativity and standard of excellence were inspired even further. Through Paloma’s regal manor and innate understanding of art and beauty, coupled with Christian’s visionary attention to detail and design, Nicole was left with a strong impression that would raise her standard of “Artist” forever.
A graduate of Fordham University at Lincoln Center, today Nicole’s subjects faithfully count on her integrity, reliability, creativity and flawless execution.
