Hi guys! My name is Nicole Kestenbaum and I was born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and I’m bilingual and Hispanic even though my name might not sound like it. I moved to the USA 9 years ago at the age of 24. I’ve always been told I look like a “gringa” but I’m proud of my roots and where I come from which is why we are raising our son bilingual.
My passion for beauty transcends time—it’s what I’ve always done: from launching the first newspaper in high-school, to working in a women’s magazine as a beauty columnist, make-up artist and photographer and interning at a local magazine in Houston; I love this life I’ve created. I was a journalist and photographer back in Honduras but now I am a full-fledged beauty blogger & photographer in Texas!
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and Advertising, 2 certificates from the Anhemi Morumbi University in Sao Paulo, Brazil where I took summer courses and an Associates Degree in Commercial Photography from Houston Community College.
In this crazy blogging journey I have been featured as a stylish Latina on a national website and as one of the best beauty bloggers in Texas. I’ve even chatted with Kate Hudson on the phone, been featured in the biggest national newspaper in my home-country, had Jason DeRulo repost my photo and taken selfies with Nigel Barker.
Or even if you have any make-up questions, I’d love to hear from you!
