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