Hi ! My name is Valeria Nova.

I am a hair and makeup artist, educator and entrepreneur, with a passion for unforgettable makeovers and teaching women to look and feel their best!

I created Two Chicks and Some Lipstick to celebrate women and to help bring out the best versions of YOU!

“I truly believe that with the right product and simple techniques, every woman can learn to look and feel beautiful! I thank you for letting me be a part of your beauty journey.”

I’ve been doing makeup forever!

As a makeup and beauty junkie, I would spend my allowance on fashion magazines (this was pre-internet! O.M.G.) and obsess over the photos.

When I was studying drawing and painting at Ontario Collage of Art and Design, I discovered Kevyn Aucoin’s makeup books.

I graduated with a BFA and decided to transition from painting beautiful portraits to doing makeup.

I worked at MAC Cosmetics for about a year while developing my portfolio and collaborating with photographers.

Then I got a website for my work.

And then I had the opportunity to go solo and freelance, working with photographers who shot for some of the biggest fitness and glamour publications.

With an impressive list of celebrity clients and over a decade of professional experience, I teamed up with a friend & fellow makeup artist to create twochicksandsomelipstick.com; a fun blog dedicated to sharing our love of makeup with women who want to look and feel beautiful.

In 2019, I took over Two Chicks and Some Lipstick Inc.

I always knew that Two Chicks was something special. And it is.

Two Chicks started with Val and Lori and grew into YOU and ME.

I am here to inspire women to connect with their feminine spirit. Through makeup! I mean, what is more feminine tag applying your favourite lipstick? Or styling your hair? Don’t those little acts of self love make you FEEL like a ROCKSTAR??

After years of doing, watching, learning and asking, I have the tools to teach and empower women to put their best face forward, and show women of all ages that makeup is fun and can be an instant confidence boost!

As a makeup educator, I had the tools to create

The Two Chicks Makeup Method

..an online program to teach and empower women to embrace makeup, love themselves and become their very own makeup artist!

Makeup doesn’t have to be intimidating or complicated. Makeup is not all or nothing. Let me show you how to use makeup to help enhance your already gorgeous features!

Let me teach you how to do your makeup like a PRO!
