The former paramedic nurse is famous for her full-face glam makeup looks.
However, the 27-year-old also isn’t afraid to share her barefaced ‘before’ look with her 800,000 followers.
On the latest episode of the Beauty Boss podcast, Nikkia shared how it’s helped her feel more comfortable in her own skin.
“A lot of the time in this industry, the bloggers and girls in magazine look so perfect all the time. For me, that was never really that relatable,” she said.
“I’m not perfect, I have breakouts, I have oily skin. I struggle with everyday things that people struggle with.”
Rather than trying to hide this, Nikkia decided to use it as a way to help others.
“I’m a completely normal human and the best way I can help other people is to be as real as possible and to show everybody what I go through.”
In doing so, Nikkia has also helped herself!
“Before I did this, I didn’t feel comfortable leaving the house without makeup, I was quite self conscious about it,” she said.
“But through this journey and constantly being in videos with no makeup on, I now feel totally comfortable without makeup on its completely changed my perspective.”
