About me

Professional Makeup Artist Johannesburg

My name is Nikkita Naidoo; I am a creative, dynamic, young lady who also happens to be the creator of Nikki’s Beautique. Nikki’s Beautique is a fully mobile make-up artistry service that is available in the Gauteng, South Africa area.  My main areas of specialty are print and bridal make-up; however I also have expertise in a vast number of other genres.

The long story short is I stumbled into the make-up industry unintentionally when I decided to try a make-up course in 2015. I started to realize that make-up was the blood in my veins that my heart was unknowingly longing for. I honed my skills, networked and built a portfolio (that I will continue to improve until my hands do not work). I was eventually ready to take a leap of faith and be a fulltime professional make-up artist in Johannesburg and have not looked back since!

I am honoured to wake up each morning and do what I love most; this passion fuels each and every single make-up application I do. I created Nikki’s Beautique on these basic principles: defining, enhancing and preserving natural beauty. I believe that all women and men from every walk of life are blessed with a unique beauty. My job (more like my privilege) is to help you embrace your radiance. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, and you do not tell yourself that enough! Let me help you embrace every inch of your beauty. Yes, it’s true, confidence radiates from within but when your exterior shines, it only boosts the sparkle in your interior.

Make-up is so many things to so many people. It is a pick me up when you put on some red lipstick. It is glamour when you watch celebrities walk down the red carpet. It is  a confidence boost when you can cover a blemish. It is the feeling of being on top of the world when you finally found the perfect foundation shade. It is more than a little bit of paint on your face. It is art on a real life canvas. Most of all, make-up is not about hiding who you are, it is about finding yourself and loving yourself. With that said, make-up is personal; I ensure that I adapt my skill set to your tastes so you can leave my chair feeling like the best version of yourself.
