My name is Nicky Cox, I am a fully qualified freelance make-up artist based in Wrexham covering Chester, Mold, Flintshire & The North West.
I have always had an interest in makeup even as a small child, my first encounter with applying makeup was when I was 6 years old on my Girls World head and I have never looked back since! I left school at sixteen and then trained as a beauty therapist, I worked in a few salons in and around Wrexham and it was my passion and natural flair for makeup that lead me to become a consultant for some of the top makeup houses on the high street. Back in 2010 I had a fairytale wedding at Peckforton Castle and it was during the planning of my big day that I completely fell in love with all things related to weddings!
As all you brides-to-be will know, finding reliable, friendly and cost effective suppliers is the most stressful part of planning a weddding. During my search for a local make-up artist for my Bridesmaids and mother of Bride / Groom I really struggled to find one. The closest that I came was a lady in Stockport as artists nearer were either fully booked, over-priced or didn't even reply to my countless emails or telephone calls! I finally found a lady (albeit from the other side of Cheshire) who did a lovely job at a fair price. The wedding day all went to plan and I was a very happy Bride.
After the honeymoon I started thinking about the lack of bridal make-up artists within the Wrexham area and I seriously considered setting up on my own. It was the support and encouragement from my family and friends who gave me the confidence to finally fulfill my dream of becoming my own boss as a makeup artist - and Paint Me Beautiful was born!
It is the sheer love and passion of what I do that I feel I offer a second to none service. I am friendly, reliable and most importantly have a great sense of humour; I have been a bride myself so can totally understand the emotions and stresses that you will experience during the run up to the big day so will do my best to help in any way that I can.
