Nikki Shelley has reached an impressive following on Facebook thanks to her makeup skills. The mother-of-three uses face paints to create a kind of different monsters and terrifying faces. She had no training and taught herself to face-paint at home in Rugby, Warwickshire.
“I began painting my kids’ faces for Halloween; then I asked Craig if I could paint him as well. But I knew I couldn’t paint on them all the time, so I started painting my face. I began to think of ways I could make my work unusual. I wanted to stand out and try new things. Luckily it has paid off.”
Shelley now offers her service at events such as birthday parties and weddings.
