GUEST INSTRUCTOR 2015/2016
Follow your dreams when it comes to work, as well as your personal life.
Nikol Nikolakis was born and raised in Italy. Upon graduating in Foreign Languages at the University of Trieste, she moved to London to acquire a degree in management, after which she decided to redirect her studies towards make-up. Shortly after that she became a Professional Make-up Artist, focusing on photoshoots and catwalks. During that period she finished her education for a Make-up Instructor and started working in that field as well. The passion for make-up emerged when she was just a child, and she always dreamed that her biggest passion would become her job. Because being a Make-up Artist is mainly a freelance job she doesn’t have a single place or company where she works, but if she could single out her main activities they would be a teaching position in JL Style Academy in Zagreb, and running the chain of perfumeries in Italy.
When it comes to make-up, the thing that excites her the most is creativity and constant meeting of new people, while as a Make-up Instructor she can express her passion for her job and transfer it to her students. Apart from her talent and skills in the make-up artistry, the thing that singles her out from the crowd is her strength to manage stressful situations and the ability of working in teams. Also the best proof of her everlasting love towards this specific industry is the fact that she changes hobbies very often, and the only one she never got tired of is make-up. The icons she admires the most are Frida Kahlo and Coco Chanel, because even thou they were two different women from completely different worlds, they both lived their lives to the fullest and they both created something special by transforming their weaknesses into strengths.
