"I had an incredible experience working with Nic! She got up at the crack of dawn to our hotel so we could be out the door for our sunrise photo shoot by 6 am. Not only did she arrive early, she rocked my client's makeup and made her look like a goddess! I can't say enough positive things about Nic, she's fun, energetic, and amazing at her craft! I highly,
highly recommend working
with her."

"Nic was awesome! Came to my house before an event,and

transformed my 52 yr old face with a recent breakout, to natural beauty with a bit of kick!! I could never do it myself! I never knew I could look and feel 10 yrs younger!"

"Nic is amazing! She did make up for my 5 bridesmaids and I on my wedding day! She was professional, creative and very personable. I don't usually wear a lot of make up so this was a fear of mine before getting it professionally done. Nic made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. She is reliable and extremely talented! I would highly recommend using her!!"

-Carla H

"I can not say enough wonderful things about Nic Swanson! I am so incredibly lucky to have found her for my winter wedding. Not only was my wedding party and my make up exactly what I wanted, but her calm and reassuring manner made the day even more enjoyable. Her rates are competitive, she is extremely responsive to questions and arrived on site on time ready to make us look amazing. Could not be happier!"
