Add-Type -AssemblyName  System.Windows.Forms
$message = 'Your system will shutdown soon!'
$title = 'Alert'

[System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show($message, $title, [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons]::OKCancel, [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon]::Warning)

These are the available button styles:
