T-shirt Tuesday! Nicole Bryan


I have known Nici for over 6 years.  I met her when we were both part of getting ready a wedding party- her to do hair and me doing the makeup.  We have worked together on several wedding parties since then and our friendship continues to grow.   Nici is my go-to girl for all things hair including when I decide to chop it off and dye it a new shade of red.  I am so grateful for her!


A little about Nicole:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?:   A fancy saying on a t-shirt, what could be better than that?

Tell me a little about yourself:    Wife. Mom. Entrepreneur.  My passion is hair and I am blessed to do it while raising my 2 kids and being loved by my supportive husband.  What more could I ask for?

Holyfield Wedding

When my friends get married and ask me to be a small part of their big day, I am so grateful and excited to do makeup!  Melanie and I were former coworkers, and kept in touch.  I loved that I was asked months in advance to do the makeup for both the beautiful bride and her mom!

The look for both women was a natural, with enough for pictures, look.  Eye shapes and contours were focused on without feeling overdone.

Krista and Kyle Engagement Photos

It was so much fun to talk with Krista and do her makeup for these engagement photos last week!  I was shown a smokey eye and I think we achieved just that.   I did a traditional smokey eye with a warmer twist.   Adding a warm brown helps to break up the intensity of the silvers and blacks.

I love how these images turned out!  Beautiful work by Studio 616

Phoenix Magazine December 2015

So much excitement around this issue of Phoenix Magazine!  An amazing opportunity to do makeup for this local guide to all things Phoenix, and to have my work on the cover was a complete BONUS!  The talent that came together for this feature was profound.  I am so grateful to have worked with every one of these individuals.

Celebrating A Cousin’s Wedding

I was excited and honored to be asked to do my cousin’s wedding makeup for her big day in Sedona, Arizona.  Kate chose a very natural look with focus on her eyes.  And in true Nault woman fashion, she applied her own mascara.  (Us Nault gals have a thing about our lashes!)  I loved it!  It was a beautiful wedding ceremony with a gorgeous bride.  The Sedona red rocks made for a stunning back drop to complete the pictures.

This shoot was so much fun!  I loved being able to do makeup for this shoot at a farm in Queen Creek.
