The name behind the face
If you think our Trump women have the time or expertise to craft their infamous style alone, you’re largely mistaken.
In fact, there’s one woman in particular that takes care of both Ivanka and Melania’s makeup needs. Her name is Nicole Bryl.
Having been in the business for 30 years, Bryl is an expert stylist for power and celebrity figures. Her talent was fueled by her mom, who also had a career in hair and makeup.
Bryl also has her own anti-aging line of Vitamin C products that the Trump ladies incorporate into their daily skincare routines.
How she met the Trumps: Melania
Bryl initially met Melania way before she was the first lady. They were both working on a commercial shoot – Melania as a super model, Bryl as a makeup artist. However, it would be seven years later before they began their professional relationship.
Before their second encounter, Melania commented on the makeup styling of a family friend, Kathie Lee. Lee gave all the credit to her stylist, who happened to be Bryl. She’s been working for the first lady ever since – about 14 years to date!
Praise from Melania
“Congratulations Nicole Bryl on your skincare line. Your passion, talent & dedication to beauty is seen in your artistry and in your anti-aging vitamin C creations! I like to use the NB Vitamin C Face Lifting Water, Tightening Mask, Smoothing Scrub and Perfecting Serum daily! I incorporate the 4 minute artisanal treatment into my beauty regime!”
How she met the Trumps: Ivanka
Ivanka met Bryl after asking Melania for a recommended makeup artist. At the time, FLOTUS had been working as Bryl’s client for about a year for events ranging from red carpet and editorial photo shoots, to campaigns and TV interviews. The introduction marked Ivanka as Bryl’s second Trump family client.
Since then, Ivanka has also used makeup artist Alexa Rodulfo for her public appearances. It’s unclear who she goes to most for her makeup needs; however, Bryl posted a photo with the first daughter about five weeks ago, so they’re definitely still in touch.
Praise from Ivanka
“Nicole is an exceptionally talented makeup artist and her skin care line is a reflection of her passion and precision. I have been obsessing over the Nicole Bryl Vitamin C face tightening mask and smoothing scrub. My 2 favorite products! They are amazing. Incredible job!”
