making your day

editorial bridal makeup artist in the tri-state

My name is Melanie! I am a lover of all things art! When I am not doing make up, dancing, or watching Grey’s Anatomy I am playing with my puppy Pepper…I’m obsessed with him. Chocolate ice cream is everything to me especially over a good book. I LOVE to travel—Caribbean destinations are my fave…destination brides meet me there!

You've most likely found yourself here because you are recently engaged and I cannot wait to hear more of your story!

and so much congrats!

welcome!

"I couldn’t recommend Melanie enough! I was thrilled with my and my bridesmaids’ makeup designs. She truly embodies what a makeup artist should be because that’s exactly what she is: an artist! Each face is like a piece of art to her and you can see that through her patience, attention to detail, and sheer joy in what she is doing."

I could not recommend Melanie enough from her kind nature, expertise in skincare (perfect for brides with sensitive skin like me), and overall professionalism. There was no silly question I could ask her as she soothed any worry I had. Not to mention, she made me look exactly how I wanted on the biggest day of my life. An amazing artist and an even better person to work with! I have and will absolutely continue to recommend Melanie to brides or anyone looking for the perfect makeup for any special event.

I could not have had a more perfect experience with Melanie on my wedding day. Everything from the consultation, trial, and pre-wedding coordination was smooth and stress free. She really listened to any concerns I had, and truly created beautiful work for myself, my mother, and my bridesmaids. I look back on my pictures and I am so grateful that Melanie made my wedding day so special. I wholeheartedly recommend Melanie to make your special day even more beautiful than you could imagine!

"Melanie is the absolute best! Everyone looked absolutely stunning and her skill was evident looking back at the photos from our big day. Melanie is a true professional. She arrived on time and did not stop working until everyone looked flawless.  She also worked extremely well with our photographer and videographer, helping create memories we will cherish on film for years to come."

Taylor

Such an amazing experience using Melanie Makeup Artistry! Melanie was so accommodating when it came to doing a pre-wedding trial and even traveling to our wedding venue to do our makeup first thing in the morning. I would recommend her again and again!
