I don’t know if there is enough space for me to rave. Nicole is amazing. Being African American it’s hard to find someone who really knows how to do your makeup. Nicole came highly recommended, so I emailed her. From the start her enthusiasm showed thru on her correspondence. I had had makeup mess ups before, and she made me feel so comfortable I knew I was making the right choice. She worked with my time line, time frame and was willing to make changes to her typical schedule for me. When it came to the week of my trial, I had to reschedule last min. She was so nice about it- and was able to make an apt that week for me. She opened her home to me just so I could meet with her(ps most adorable daughters EVER) the trial was fantastic. She spent a full 90 min making me look AHHH-MAAZING! I am someone who usually wears makeup, so I wanted a dramatic and different look. She exceeded my every expectation. As I sat in her chair, I tried to think of when I had something coming up that I could use her for again! She also educated me, told me tricks, and why she did this or that- and then gave me a full list of all product used for me to purchase! I CANT wait for my wedding!!!! I know she will make it perfect, I can’t imagine getting married without her magic. THANK YOU Nichole!.

There are not enough words to describe the wonders of Nicole’s work! As soon as I got engaged I knew I had to book Nicole for my hair and make-up! She is a true artist and on top of that an amazing person ?? ??I first worked with Nicole for my engagement photos and could not have been more pleased. She made me look like and feel like a movie star! I couldn’t wait to work with her again! ??As part of your package you get a trial run of your day of look. I came prepared with pictures and Nicole was able to translate the pictures into and even better reality! I looked amazing for the trial run that I knew on my wedding day I was in perfect hands. The day of came and Nicole arrived on-time at the hotel and worked her magic on not only myself but my bridal party as well. She made us all feel and look so beautiful! Her assistant Chrystal helped with hair and was also amazing to work with ?? ??I cannot thank her enough for her amazing work, but even more for being such a wonderful and kind person! I look forward to the next time I can go out and get all dolled up to have my hair and make-up done by her again! Thanks Nicole:).

I’m not a big make up person hence the reason I knew I wanted my make up done professionally on my wedding day. But Eugene did not have many people to choose from. I found Nicole through some research on my own and due the the distance between us we never did a trial run and just communicated through email. I trusted her completely and gave her total freedom on my wedding day. My thought process was she’s done this a million times and I’ve never been married before so why not trust an expert? She did AMAZING!! I’ve had my make up done at mac counters before and felt super overdone and caked with foundation. Not at all with Nicole even though she uses Mac products I felt so gorgeous (and never greasy even at the end of the night). ??Nicole was so freaking nice too and easy to talk to on an otherwise stressful day =) I had her bring an extra person to help with my 7 bridesmaids, 2 moms, and an extra mom friend and she did just as amazing on all different ages. The wedding photos and video came out so beautiful in part because of the awesome make-up =) Can’t say enough about Powder Inc. My cousin (who was a bridesmaid in my wedding) just hired Powder for her wedding next August and as the saying goes immitation is the sincerest form of flattery =) They are the best in Oregon hands down..

Nicole was absolutely amazing to work with! She met me on site an hour and a half from her house, and proceeded to make my wedding make-up and hair dreams come true! She takes the utmost care with her work, and is very detail oriented when applying make-up and styling hair. She’s a true perfectionist, which I really appreciated! I highly recommend her for any wedding hair and make-up style. She will truly make you look like a super model!.

From the time I got engaged, I tirelessly researched vendors for every aspect of my wedding. I used the guide of various publications in Oregon, but found that most vendors I went with were ones I genuinely found to be the best. Nicole and her team is top ranked throughout Oregon and certainly lives up to that! It is very evident, for any bride, that she stands above the rest. From her website, to before and after photos on her FB page, it made the decision so easy to go with Powder inc. She portrays herself and business in the most professional way while luring in brides across Oregon wanting her to work her magic for their big day. Nicole personally did my hair and makeup and brought in Lindsey and Janelle to help with my 8 bridesmaids and my Mom. I called her about 8 months before my wedding and she had another bride that day, but still fit my wedding in. She is an EXTREMELY hard worker and after going in for my trial run I realized what a kind and beautiful person she is. I have truly never liked anyone else doing my makeup and walked out of her studio feeling so excited for my wedding. Not to mention her attention to detail as she sent me an excel spreadsheet to help time out all my bridesmaids for hair/makeup the day of ?? Every single one of my bridesmaids and my mom felt beautiful on the day. She is truly a talented artist, who trains her team well and has both the business and artistic perspective down! Thank you Nicole and Powder Inc for adding so much beauty to my wedding day!.

The Powder Inc. Makeup team is amazing. I felt absolutely gorgeous on the day of and loved that my makeup artist created a look to go specifically with my hair and makeup. My dress had an old Hollywood vibe, and my hair felt vintage-inspired. Everything was perfect. If you’re wavering on whether to spend the money to get your makeup done or not, don’t think about it anymore. It was so worth it. And I looked fantastic in my pictures, which I will have forever. My husband’s jaw hit the floor when he saw me walk down the aisle. You feel pampered, your girlfriends and female family members feel pampered, and everyone loves it. ??I didn’t actually feel like a bride until I sat down in that chair. I got nervous and excited and it really hit home that I was getting married. Powder Inc is the reason for that. Love them, book them, feel fabulous.

I must start off by saying, I am extremely picky when it comes to my hair and makeup! Nicole Wagner at powder inc. is above and beyond the best makeup artist and hair stylist in Oregon! She is sweet, reassuring, complimentary, professional and most of all talented! I am so confident in her talent that I would walk down the isle on my wedding day without even looking at myself in the mirror first! I highly recommend powder inc for any special occasion you want to be done up for, or even for a self esteem boost if anything else. I have never felt so beautiful in my life and I owe it to Nicole!.

I am just waiting until the next time I get to have my hair and makeup done by Nicole. She is amazing. Not only does she do an incredible job as far as making you look like a movie star version of yourself, she makes you feel like you are just hanging out with one of your girlfriends. I will always recommend her to anyone looking for hair and makeup services..

I had Nicole do my make up for a personal photo shoot and while I knew she was good, I had no idea HOW good until I saw myself. She did a simply amazing job, bringing out every good feature and making it look even more incredible with her skilled hand and trained eye. She was sweet, kind, and took the time to explain what she was doing so I had a hope of recreating some of the look on my own. ??Nicole has a great personality, is easy to talk to, was flexible for scheduling and reasonably priced. Hands down the best thing I’ve done for myself in years!!.

Hi Nicole, I just want to express my gratitude for your awesome beauty talent!! I know that you have heard this a million times so I will be the million and first person to tell you this…your talents surpass any other makeup artist out there. Your gift is truly special and what most makeup artists should be…an artist!! Every girl would like to think that we’re born beautiful but behind every beautiful girl in Portland is a Powder girl!=)We had a blast when you were doing our makeup and hair! It was like we’re just having a grand slumber party with talented girlfriends doing our makeup and hair. I’m glad that I was persistent and didn’t take no for an answer…because you did my makeup anyway!!!!! You rock!! Hopefully a year and half from now you’ll do my makeup again for my “baby bump” photo shoot=). Once again, thank you for taking your time away from your family to make me look like Lucy Lui! Best wishes to you!.

My wedding was yesterday and I literally could not wait to review Nicole. Like most brides, hair and makeup was the most important to me and the thing I was most freaked out about. I don’t wear a lot of makeup and wanted a look that would ensure I was beautiful on the wedding day both in photos and in person, while still looking like me. I live in SF and was only able to be up in Portland for consults on two separate occasions, and long story short I was contracted with another hair and makeup artist but was just NOT happy so I went for a consult with Nicole and once I saw the finished product I knew I HAD to have her. She just looks at you and knows instantly what look is right for you. She had another wedding scheduled for the morning of my wedding but she worked with me and ended up even arriving an hour ahead of schedule which helped us out a TON in terms of our timeline. Jein did my little sisters makeup and my mom also got hers done. I felt like an absolute knockout the entire night and my mom and sister looked gorgeous as well. We all got compliments nonstop the entire evening about how stunning we looked. On top of this, Nicole is super cool and fun to work with….I just cannot recommend her enough. She is fun, flexible, professional, kind, and her work is truly flawless..

To make a long story short I would say I do not think that I could become more beautiful than what Nicole Wagner made me for my day and I did not even have a trial session with her. She listens to you and does exactly what you ask her. From my previous experience with other stylists, I knew It is better to have something in mind so I had decided what I wanted for my hair style. However, I did not have specific suggestions for my face. I am so happy about my experience with her. I loved her personality and I cannot imagine anybody regretting working with her. She is amazing in every way!

Nicole is nothing short of amazing. She’s incredibly professional, but still manages to be friendly, she was flexible with times, the order that the girls had their services done on the day of the wedding, and she even packed up all her supplies and moved everything to a different room when our hotel room became available. And the work itself is wonderful. She accommodated 4 totally different styles of makeup and kept everyone happy. And everyone told us all night how amazing our hair and makeup looked. She is dedicated to the work that she produces and is worth every penny..
