She said an eye shadow primer was essential to avoid colour creasing and improve vibrancy. 

‘I pack colour on the base and use tiny brushes to blend and not lose vibrancy,’ she said.

She also likes to mix different tones of one colour for a fun, bright result and says her favourite colour to use right now is aqua.

‘It’s important to make sure you have set every part of the base before applying any additional eye make up,’ she added,

Nicole also revealed her natural eyebrows are actually thin and long, which seems impossible when looking at her photos.

What are Nicole’s tips for beautiful, glowing skin and perfect makeup? 

• Make sure you properly remove your make up after each wear – this is essential for keeping your skin looking fresh

• The P Louise Base is my go to beauty product for make up application

• Use a colourful eye shadow palette – my go to is brighter colours but always suggest blending out with neutral colours to make the look more wearable (but still fun)

• I like to add on lashes – I’d say this is very personal as everyone has their own style, but my preference is a medium sized lash. I like to add a deep black mascara onto lashes so the coloured eye shadow can pop

‘I use four products to create the perfect brow,’ she said.

Each day she uses a brow gel to colour and thicken the appearance of her natural hairs. She then fills in ‘the bald spots’ with powder before drawing in extra hairs with a pen.

Once her brows look complete she uses a clear gel to ‘lock everything into place’.

She also said doing brows last, instead of first, is a game changer.

‘Doing them last is much quicker as you get a better sense of how much product you need,’ she said.

For perfect skin the beauty guru recommends a back-to basics approach.

‘I’ve completely stripped back my skin routine and now I’m getting the best results I’ve ever seen,’ she said.
