Nicky Posley's journey into makeup began through a strong fascination with the transformative power of beauty, art, and fashion. A fine artist first, Nicky experimented with many visual art forms, eventually finding the medium he felt most at home with. He is both a working artist and a respected educator of his craft.

He believes that makeup is an art and that art is empowerment. Whether it be slick and modern or primitive and rudimentary, art can evoke emotions deeply rooted in the human experience. Like the human experience, it is ever-changing. . . always evolving.

We sit down to discuss the history of Kodak‚Äôs Shirley card and how the technology of film impacted the rendering of skin tones, especially those of people of color.
