About Nicole Chilelli
At an early age Nicole had an interest in all types of art -- painting, drawing, sculpting etc. The older she became the stronger her love for horror and Halloween grew. Each Halloween she'd set up her house with props she had made in order to scare the neighborhood kids. Eventually, she took Halloween makeup class and then realized she had found the thing she wanted to do in life.
For Nicole, makeup merged two of her favorite things in life -- art and Halloween. Nicole took two more makeup classes, one for fantasy and one for professional makeup. She started working as a freelance artist on FX and Beauty Makeup, then worked as an artist for M.A.C Cosmetics.
Nicole has since opened her own shop, Vicious Vanity Fx, in Roseville CA. Vicious Vanity Fx is a full running shop offering everything from special effects to beauty makeup and classes.
On October 31, 2012, Nicole was crowned the first female Winner of Syfy's Face off Season 3. Face Off is a elimination competition television series testing the skills of selected artists from around the world. Challenges incorporate effects make-up and require a wide range of skills from prosthetics, 3-D design, sculpting, casting and molding.
After Face off Nicole continued to work hard at FX, winning her two more awards. Nicole was honored as Raw Artist of the Year at the 2012 RAWards in Sacramento, CA, and received the Vanguard Award from the California Film Foundation 2013.
