Meet Nicole Sweeney, Key Makeup and SFX Makeup for The Family Way: Coming Home.
Nicole is a SFX makeup artist who dabbles in everything bloody, gory, weird, strange, and mythical. Her love for film was discovered early on when she would sneakily watch Predator with her cousin when they were 4 years old. Horror/SciFi films were engraved into her childhood from her film buff father who would stay up late and watch films like Alien, Evil Dead, Poltergiest just to name a few. But it wasn't until early adulthood she discovered her passion for makeup. And another few more years to put two and two together.
Her makeup career started in 2012 which lead her to be one of a dozen chosen to do makeup 2 years in a row for the Zombie Run (2012-2013), a web series Unded Nation (2013-2015, and had her makeup on the cover of We Rise Magazine (Sugar Skull Makeup 2013). Her hard work landed her lead makeup for a feature called Predatory Moon (2016) along with many other films such as The Figure (2016), Harbinger (2014), Hungryland, Never Again (2014), and Never Go Back (2017).
In 2015 Nicole signed on with Siren Productions Media and has gotten to travel all around the state of FL creating bad ass monsters and loving every minute of it.
