Melissa’s passion for makeup artistry began 20 years ago when she began her journey to inspire women and impact the world of beauty. That experience has shaped a long career working behind the scenes in film, at magazine shoots, fashion week and leading seminars teaching artistry techniques. Her 9 years as an artistry educator brings real life experience and hands on expertise to her work. “My philosophy as an artist is to inspire, engage, and instill confidence in my clients. I believe that makeup artistry is a way for women to express their inner beauty, and my job is to help bring that forward.”
Melissa has a makeup studio in Los Angeles, California where she teaches students how to become professional makeup artists and gives private lessons to women to help discover their best beauty routines.
