"Melissa and her team were the absolute best. We received so many compliments on our makeup and hair and all of the girls were raving about what an amazing job she did. She was so professional from trial to the big day, and really put me at ease no matter what questions I had for her. I would highly recommend Melissa and her team to anyone! She really made me look and feel special on my big day!"

I was chosen as the 201 Bride the year I was getting married. Melissa was there to do my makeup for so many special occasions that year. She is professional , clean, organized and so patient. She did my makeup for my engagement photos, engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party and wedding day. Many of those were featured in the magazine that year. Melissa can master any look you are looking for!

Beauty Services

I’m passionate about all things beauty. My gift as a makeup artist is  much deeper than applying makeup. It is bringing out someone’s confidence, & making women feel empowered. True beauty lies within. It is self-acceptance. Your true beauty is more felt than seen. Makeup should never be used to hide yourself. It should be used to enhance your natural beauty. It is my  job to make you feel and look your best self. 

When I’m not working my bridal business, I’m working private appointments in my home studio. I do a lot of lessons, beauty bag makeovers, makeup parties, and offer makeup appointments for all occasions. I'm also running my own social media makeup business helping women build self esteem.
