Nikki’s New Arrival at HHS


On May 2, 2019, Nikki Kasak, came to Hawthorne High School.

For those who do not know who Nikki Kasak is, she works for the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bravo, and Pnina Tornai from Say Yes to the Dress!

Nikki has experience working with cosmetic companies NARS and MAC! Nikki is well known in the Metropolitan area as a top bridal makeup artist. She came to HHS and gave a tutorial for a new prom look. Nikki gave some helpful tips to achieve the prom look and tips for makeup in general.

She also gave students a background story about herself and additional information on what she does. When she was 18, she had a part time job working with MAC. She graduated high school and went to college to major in art and minor in marketing. Originally, she wanted to go to college to major in fashion. She accomplished her four years! She has always believed that true beauty radiates from within and everyone is as beautiful as we feel. Now that we have gotten to know Nikki a little better, The Clarion got to ask her a couple questions!
