Nadine is a zesty Makeup Artist, born in Birmingham, England. Growing up Nadine was influenced by the browns, greys and green landscapes of Welsh countrysides and English beaches. Contrasted against the lively tropical yellows, oranges and turquoise on the island of Jamaica, where she would spend holidays. This contrasting style, of calm and energetic colours, soon became Nadine's core colour pallet displayed through early paintings and drawings.
An early appreciator of anything with shoulder pads, diamonds and high heels. Nadine quickly fell in love with the glamorousness of 80s fashion. Her favourite time would be watching her mother prepare to go out. The dresses, the fur shawls, the pearls and of course the makeup. A little rouge here, eyeliner there, and finally lipstick, et voilà! The transformation of her working class mother to what could only be described as a suitable rival for Ms Alexis Colby herself! Nadine was hooked!
Throughout school, college and university, Nadine explored all of the arts, music, theatre and dance, however she would always come back to art. She began to apply her lessons in art and her Mothers tutorials, to her own makeup. And before long she was transforming herself, friends and family.
In 2003, Nadine joined Mac cosmetics as a part time makeup artist, after less than a year she was sent to Paris to launch a new mac counter.
