"She did my makeup for my engagement party, and I am so happy I decided to work with her. She came to my home on time, and took her time making me look beautiful. She was really easy to work with, and went above and beyond to accommodate me. Thanks so much Melanie!"
"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."
"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."
