Perfect Soft Glam

Melissa is the best! From the get-go, Melissa knew the soft glam vision I was going for. I have always been hesitant about airbrush makeup and how it can look cakey, but Melissa reassured me during my makeup trial that the oil-based airbrush is the way to go. I had my trial 3 months prior to my makeup and loved how it looked so natural. I only had a few minor tweaks from the trial to change for the wedding. Melissa took photos of the makeup look from the trial and used those photos as the basis for the wedding makeup look with my small changes. She also provided makeup services for my 4 girls, my mom, and my mother-in-law. Each one of them loved their makeup look and said it fit their style. We all looked so beautiful and the makeup lasted throughout the night. Highly recommend Melissa!

Airbrush makeup applied perfectly!

Melissa uses air brush makeup, which is a HUGE bonus. Makeup artists who still apply foundation directly to the face with brushes are behind the times.

Melissa's communication is STELLAR! I reached out to a few makeup vendors when I first started wedding planning over a year ago. She got back to me immediately .. and even with an accurate pricing quote .. all in the same afternoon. On the day of my wedding, she made my makeup look and feel absolutely flawless. I received infinite compliments and felt so special. Melissa understands the exact amount of makeup one should have on her face so that the camera captures your "look" perfectly. Excellent!

If you want to feel straight out of a bridal magazine, Melissa is your girl.

If you want to feel straight out of a bridal magazine, Melissa is your girl. I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa years back through a side job we both did. Through the years I’ve watched her career grow and her makeup skills flourish!! When I was finally engaged, I knew I had to have Melissa on my special day! I had my “trial” before my engagement photos so I could insure I liked the way I looked. Melissa blew it out of the water! The airbrush was flawless, natural & not caked on. As someone who doesn’t usually wear heavy foundation- this was key for me. The makeup lasted in 90 degree heat, hours of sweat and even in the ocean!!! How crazy is that!?! Melissa was wonderful through the pandemic. She always answered quickly, dealt with our changing counts & traveled three hours to Vermont for our wedding! She’s professional, super sweet & incredibly talented. When my original hair stylist gracefully bowed out due to COVID related issues, I turned to Melissa for help. She recommended her colleague Lexie Kelly. I didn’t even ask any questions or info- I just booked her! Alone Melissa is amazing. Together they are a beauty dream team. I felt like the picture perfect bride. My mother, grandmother and sister also all LOVED their makeup / hair too. My sister cried because she said it was the first time in years she actually felt pretty. Thank you Melissa (and Lexie!) for everything.
