Madeline Nielsen

Makeup. Styling. Fashion. 

My love affair with makeup began as a way for me to express myself creatively. I believe make up is an art form that is organic and grows from my connection to my clients. My growth as a make up artist really started with wanting to enhance Natural Beauty of my Clients and in myself. 


Professionally, I spent over four years interacting with vendors, artists, models, and clients with one of the country's most prestigious department stores, Nordstrom representing the international makeup brand, MAC Cosmetics. My time there taught me the importance of listening to clients and knowing how to help them achieve their dream looks.

As an Independent Freelance Makeup Artist, I have focused on bridal and commercial contract makeup for the past five years. Brides are so special to me. There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing a bride see her finished look on her wedding day and knowing she feels absolutely stunning. 

Styling came very naturally to me. Growing up my Mother made all of my clothing. Everything was so organic and one of a kind. Those looks really followed me into my adult life. Being born and raised in Seattle gave me immediate access to music, art, media and fashion in the City. Seattle inspires so many of my Creative Visions with the cities history and Uniqueness. I love the feeling of getting dressed up just to go to the grocery store. Each creative project I do holds a special place in my heart.  My love of fashion comes out everyday and I love sharing that with my clients. 


 "Maddie is one of a kind! She is an amazing artist and an even more amazing human. Before Maddie arrived to do my makeup, on my wedding day, I had a complete meltdown. Sobbing! I was puffy and a mess. She fixed me and made me feel like the most beautiful I have ever felt. I'm so thankful for her!!" -Alyse LoPatriello

"I was so nervous for when it came to pick my makeup artist for my wedding. Spending the day with your future hubby, loved ones and having it all documented - the makeup artist had to be a top-notch pro! Maddie was all of that and more! When it came to the big day she was on time with all of her supplies, ready to get the party started! She listened to everyone's requests and worked with a variety of skin tones. Everyone looked FABULOUS! So much so, that my mom didnt wash her makeup off after the wedding because she wanted to show it off the next day! I felt beautiful, she gave me an amazing natural glam look that to this day, my friends still compliment how beautiful my makeup was on my wedding day! I cannot thank you enough, Maddie! Anyone looking for a makeup artist, I would recommend Maddie in a heartbeat!"

"I got married early summer 2018 in Eastern Washington and was lucky enough to have Maddie grace me with her talent and presence! She traveled over 2 hours to get to my venue. She was timely, professional and came well equipped with everything she needed to make my bridal vision come true. Although I am a fan of bold and fierce makeup, I really just wanted my bridal makeup to be soft and subtle. She listened to all of my preferences and accomplished the perfect look for me on my special day! Would recommend her to anyone." -Shelby Stanford
