Who is Alicia Nicole?
I am a 25-year-old married mother of a baby girl. Like many women before me, I’ve had a passion for makeup since I was a little girl when I played with my mother’s mascara and lipstick. Whether it’s a full face glam look or a natural look for the grocery store, I see makeup as an art form where the face is the canvas.
I started taking makeup seriously in 2015. That same year, I started practicing regularly and considered entering esthetician school. In March of 2016, I found out that my husband and I were expecting our first child. I then put school plans on the back burner and continued to develop my makeup skills on myself. In October of 2016, my first child was born and it has been a roller coaster ride since she’s been home. Now that she’s here and I’m a stay-at-home mom, I want to continue my dream and pursue my esthetician’s license. My goal is to reach as many people as possible. I want to provide my readers with positivity, motivation, and inspiration. I hope that this blog is able to do that for anyone who is willing to read.
