Natalie Sikorski
ESTHETIC

I grew up in Chicagoland but have had Wisconsin roots for 17 years now. I graduated from Panache Academy of Beauty in 2016 and focused on my love for Special FX makeup before joining Lotus in February 2020. I have done prosthetics and makeup for a few small independent films and loved every minute. My true passion is skin care and community. I believe through education and commitment we can change how women view themselves and others; even if it's just a spray tan or set of lash extensions - we can embrace what we have and feel beautiful every day.
