Hi, Nikolina Tepavac Ivanova here.
I am a Professional Makeup Artist, CEO, and lead educator at Glam Sophisticated Makeup Academy.
I have helped countless students launch and elevate their makeup artistry businesses, secure their ideal clients, and make more money while doing something they have the passion for.
6 years ago I quit my corporate retail job in Macy’s to pursue my dream of being a freelance makeup artist. Since that time, I have never stopped working, practicing, and perfecting my skills. I have been recognized for an outstanding career as a makeup artist, and two years ago, I started teaching makeup classes and lessons.
I have taken premium makeup certifications and training from other well-known celebrity makeup artists such as Mario Dedivanovic (MakeupbyMario - Kim K's makeup artist), Tamanna Roashan (DressYourFace), Ella Vardanyan (BeautyByElla), Lilit Caradanian, and have worked with business coaches with costs of $3000 per session and more. In 2020 I founded my dream business, a makeup academy in the heart of Las Vegas.
Now my mission is to help other aspiring makeup artists build successful makeup artistry businesses and brands.
Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy at all.
It took time and a lot of hard work and patience, but I knew I wanted to have my own business and make my own schedule while doing what I loved.
I struggled, lost thousands of dollars and a lot of time trying to figure out how to consistently make a great income.
Then, I figured what exactly is the key to having a successful makeup artistry business, and I applied all those lessons when I was building my dream business, Glam Sophisticated Makeup Academy.
