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. :)Sent on 09/11/2019

Engagement Shoot Make-Up
Let me start by telling you that Melissa is fabulous!!! I reached out to a few make-up artists in my area before an engagement photoshoot and she was the first to respond. She was so easy to talk to and flexible as the shoot was on a Sunday and I needed my make-up done early. She was so fun to talk to and made me feel so comfortable. She shared tips about make-up application and taught me a lot about skincare, too! I would recommend Melissa for her responsiveness, fun personality, high quality work, and value! I will continue to recommend her to my family & friends and hope they choose Melissa because I know they will look and feel beautiful! :)Sent on 11/13/2018

Melissa did an awesome job doing both traditional and airbrush make up for myself, 4 bridesmaids and 2 moms on our wedding day. She is very thorough with her work and puts in a lot of attention to detail to ensure everyone looks great. Throughout the planning process she was very quick to respond and answer any questions I had. She also coordinated very well with my hair stylist Cori Alexandra who she works with frequently and I also highly recommend. I highly recommend working with her!Sent on 08/25/2019

Melissa was absolutely amazing! I couldn't be happier that I picked her to do my bridal makeup. Melissa traveled to the hotel on the wedding day and to my house for a trail the day of my engagement photo shoot, which was not only super convenient but it was great to see how my makeup was photographed. She was also very responsive to all of my emails and texts. I had a very large wedding party and Melissa finished with plenty of time with no stress or rushing! My makeup and my girls makeup came out beautiful! My bridal party was stunned by how talented she was. I had the airbrush makeup done and it stayed on all through the night even with my many happy tears. I will continue to highly recommend her to many brides! Thanks- Ariane

Melissa did a wonderful job with my makeup trial and my day-of makeup! She was professional, timely, and extremely talented. I got married on (literally) the hottest day of 2016. I was so worried that my makeup would be ruined by the end of the night. On the contrary! My makeup looked just as perfect at midnight as it did when Melissa first applied it. Thank you!Sent on 10/17/2016

Melissa exceeded my expectations in every way and went far and beyond imaginable. I just instantly felt comfortable with her. During my trial she listened to how I'd like my make up and she did exaxtly what I had pictured.Sent on 05/19/2017
On the day of my wedding she showed up early smiling with excitement! Not only did she do my makeup and my bridesmaids makeup absolutely beautiful and flawless, but she make sure I was looking flawless even right before I walked down the isle. She is absolutely wonderful and has an amazing talent for what she does! She is a godsend to every bride! I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Melissa

Lauren · Married on 05/16/2015
Melissa did the makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and both brides the day of my wedding. She traveled to my venue, was prompt, friendly and did an amazing job. I was nervous about finding the right makeup person because I wear very little makeup day to day and wanted a very very natural look. Melissa listened to exactly what I wanted and from my first trial with her I knew I could trust her on my big day! I recommend her without hesitationSent on 05/23/2017
