Nikki is the make-up artist of choice right now with celebrities including Rosie Huntington-Whitley, Jourdan Dunn, Dua Lipa and Zendaya booking her when they need to dial up the drama on the red carpet or a glossy front cover. In fact, she is so in demand, that working seven days a week creating different looks for editorial shoots and events, juggling multiple clients in one day – one will inevitably be an A-lister – is simply the norm.

The key to Nikki’s look is always the eyes, and whether it’s a graphic flick or a smokey shadow, it always involves eyelashes. “There are certain things you can do make-up wise that can really transform and complete. I’ve always felt that one of the most important features on a face to achieve a polished and flattering make-up look, is beautifully defined lashes,” she explains. “I use false lashes on almost every look I create on shoots or red carpet looks, but have always struggled to find the perfect lashes to suit my needs.”

So, seeing the need for easy to apply lashes that make an impact, Nikki decided to create her own “lash wardrobe”– a collaboration with Stockholm-based eyelash brand Sweed Lashes, who specialise in handmade lashes for make-up artists. The range comprises four keystone styles that cover each of your lash needs: Corner, Cluster, Bottom and No Lash-lash. “I’ve spent a long time designing each style to ensure anyone can easily and instantly create any look,” says Nikki. “These are the only lashes you will need.”

For those looking for an elegant feline look, try the Sultry Corner Lashes – 3D half lashes which used together create a cat-eye effect. Apply them to the corner of the eye after mascara for and elongated and enhanced shape.

Looking to channel a ‘60s aesthetic? Try Underlash, says Nikki, which she created after years of experimenting to find the perfect bottom lashes. “These come in individual sections, making them easy to apply for doll-like drama.”

Meanwhile, Cluster Lashes are the obvious go-to for adding a little lift to your usual make-up routine. Available in single, double and triple clusters in four different lengths, they offer an easy way to elongate your eyes or create a full fluttery lash.

“My favourite of all these lashes is the ‘no lash-lash’ – individual lashes that are absolutely unlike anything else on the market,” says Nikki. “They are refined, delicate and beautiful. Each pack contains four different lengths, so they can be used to create natural yet impactful lash looks. This natural look is down to design – each individual lash is handcrafted and is tapered at the end, mimicking the exact shape of natural lashes.”
