Exclusive Interview with Nicole Halliwell

Nicole Halliwell and Bette Midler

Come, we fly! Nicole Halliwell is flying into action and brewing up her own success. Nicole’s version of Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus is on point. Between the outfit, hair and makeup, she has been crafting the perfect Winifred Sanderson look. If she wasn’t standing next to Bette Midler, I would have thought it was the real Winifred!

Nicole attended Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 Premiere back in September, showing off her own version of Winnie. She was on the “purple” carpet with her sisters. It was there that she met her idol, Bette Midler, the original Winifred Sanderson.

For her Winnie look, she wore a custom made wig by Tease & Floof. She says the hair is one of the most important things – from style to size – it can really make or break the whole look. She has a wig box that she carries around with her to make sure her wig stays in tact. Imagine that! Her outfit is an official Disney costume that she had modified and had tailored by seamstresses. As she shared with me, most of her outfits are handmade or custom designed. Her makeup, which she had perfected over the years, now takes her about 45 minutes from beginning to end.

Nicole loves to entertain, shock and wow audiences. Her work and talent is extraordinary, always going the extra mile to put together the look. I can see why Bette Midler was drawn to her during the Hocus Pocus 2 Premiere.

“Nicole doesn’t wait for work – she creates it.”

Nicole has many looks, which she puts in many hours to get the exact outfit, hair and makeup combination. As a fashion blogger, one of the most exciting moments for me was when Nicole hosted Paint Like a Queen. MAC Cosmetics partnered with Nicole to host the master class Paint Like a Queen in Sunny South Florida. She did step-by-step easy to understand tutorials, bringing a creative and fun new way to learn about cosmetics.
