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. Also you might be interested in the best Halloween costumes.
