    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.

    Beautiful, Elegant, Classy! That's How Melissa Made Me Feel!

    Melissa has the creative touch, the professional approach, and the beautiful colors and tools to make you feel and look AMAZING! She recently did my make-up for my niece's wedding and all I and others can say is WOW! The make-up application was flawless and looked so natural and....FUN! I would strongly recommend using Melissa for your next event. 5-stars all the way. :)
