Professional hair and makeup artist, Nicole Gonzales, serving Austin, TX and the surrounding Hill Country.

As a makeup artist in the Austin area, I have enjoyed a variety of creative opportunities. Ten years ago, I got my start as an intern on a film project assisting hair, makeup, and special effects makeup. From there I would continue working on two additional films, learning the fast paced world of hair and makeup in the film industry.


Makeup is a medium that allows me to express myself and channel the creative vision of others. It is this personal expression and opportunity for collaboration that makes me love what I do. This profession also allows for continual exploration and growth as an entrepreneur.


My experience includes runway makeup, commercial, editorial, bridal, special occasion, and music video makeup. In addition to makeup artistry, I custom blend foundations, bronzers, and highlighters using Motives Cosmetics mineral and organic makeup. I offer blowouts and styling, makeup tutorials, and personal shopping and consulting. LGBTQIA Ally.
