Nikkie, Nikkie, Nikkie!
Discovered in 2008 that she was so passionate about makeup she wanted to share that passion with the world. She found her passion for makeup after searching on YouTube to find out how she could do her makeup like the women on the TV show, The Hills. What she found was a makeup tutorial that inspired her to want to create her own.
Three months later she brought her inspiration to life when she filmed her first makeup tutorial for YouTube. Despite the fact that her first video garnered only three comments and eight views, she began to post makeup tutorials on YouTube every week.
She called her channel NikkieTutorials and quickly gained a following. Before long her channel had more viewers and subscribers than any other channel run in The Netherlands, Nikkie’s home country.
Thanks to the success of her YouTube channel, Nikkie was contacted by Pascale Tesser, a well-known makeup artist. At the time, Pascale Tesser was a makeup teacher at Amsterdam’s B Academy. This inspired Nikkie to take the teacher’s course, and as a result, the two of them became friends.
After she completed the course she chose to work as Tesser’s assistant during photoshoots. Nikkie also went on to take other makeup courses at the academy.
After working as her assistant, Nikkie became a member of Tesser’s Colourfool Agency. This led to her work on projects such as Hollands & Benelux’s Next Top Model and Miljoenenjacht & The Face. Not content to stop there, she also modeled for Fashionista, Lina, Marie Claire and Talkies Magazines. Her work with Fashionista Magazine led her to writing a column in the Teen Magazine Fashionista.
Though her time working at the Colourfool Agency was productive and beneficial to her career, in 2014 she chose to begin working as a freelance makeup and hair artist instead.

In addition to filling her blog with makeup recommendations, tutorials and advice she continues to find ways to communicate with her fans and followers.
