Shennel Patrick, better known as Nelli, is a Makeup Artist, Beauty Expert and a Serial Creative whose vision extends far beyond the palette. She’s making strides in the beauty industry, landing celebrity clients, magazine features, and success as a Beauty Educator + Content Creator. Nelli’s unwavering ambition and stubborn determination have meant that not even a challenging childhood, many difficult years as an undocumented immigrant in the concrete jungles of Brooklyn, or a near-fatal car accident could deter her passion for Makeup Artistry and all things Beauty.
Nelli's commitment to her Artistry is total - MIND, BODY + SPIRIT. God being the ultimate Creator + Artist, she believes He places a calling over the lives of the ones He blesses with the Gift of Creating. Far beyond tips + techniques, she also believes her purpose as an Educator is to enlighten Artists (particularly in the Beauty Industry) on the importance of staying connected to the Giver of their gifts in order to manifest it's intended power. Your gifts can only make room for you through TOTAL submission to God.
As she grows professionally and spiritually, Nelli's vision is to expand the way in which she connects to and transform her client's Beauty. Blessed with the gifts of creating, inspiring, educating and healing, Nelli believes that GOD has called her to awaken the BEAUTY WITHIN. With hopes of one day being a Global Beauty Educator + Healer - Nelli stays awake studying African Beauty across the globe. The mission is to highlight, honor and celebrate African Beauty, internationally.
Spirit has begun a GOOD work and Nelli is excited to be a vessel!
"Outward beauty is merely a veil - if your Spirit has not yet found it's way home." xoxo Nelli
