You’ve seen his work in Elle, Today’s Bride, and San Francisco Chronicle, on the runway for designers such as Max Azria, Adrienne Vittadini, and Imitation of Christ & on television in The Gayle King Show, and Say Yes to the Dress.
Nicky took a break from our S/B Ruby Red photo shoot to chat with us about the holidays!
What makeup trends are perfect for a holiday party?
I love the bold saturated colors for lips, as well as the contrasting matte and shimmer textures.
What makes a look especially festive for this time of year?
Creating a holiday look is about building in festivity with color, texture, and light. Making features pop and speaking to optimism while still respecting the canvas.
What was the creative process like for creating the TEMPTU Ruby Red Holiday look?
The process for creating a holiday inspired look around S/B Blush in Ruby Red was fun because I had free reign. I wanted something that festive and colorful while being relatable and attainable for real women.

What’s on your list for Santa?
S/B Blush in Ruby Red of course! It can be used beautifully anywhere on the face.
I also love TEMPTU’s Pink Pearl and Champagne Shimmer Highlighters.
In addition, everyone should have an amazing liquid liner (i.e. eyeko liquid liner in black).
What are some of your favorite TEMPTU products?
The S/B formula is a favorite for its beautiful natural looking finish and the Invisible Difference Powders are great for their lightweight & oil absorbing properties. And of course I love my Temptu Pro Airbrush System!
Any great vacations planned for the holidays?
The only vacation I’ll be taking anytime soon will be in my mind! LOL!
