Welcome to Melissa Abel online, I am a makeup artist with over 10 years industry experience. Working all over the world creating bespoke makeup styles for fashion and TV, along with wearable makeup looks for an everyday appeal.
During the last 5 years I have moved on to specialise in beautiful romantic bridal makeup, lessons for ladies who would like to learn some industry tricks and re-vamp their makeup bags, and special occasion makeup applications for those events when you need to make heads turn. I also work with a verity of talented and creative photographers putting together make-over photo shoots, actor head shots and model portfolio's.
Working on a great number of photo shoots over the years has given me the expert insight into how to apply the optimum amount of makeup, ensuring my clients achieve exactly the look they would like to capture, for their treasured wedding photographs or those all important portfolio images. Using a selection of products from all of the leading beauty brands such as MAC, Illamasqua, Chanel, Bare Minerals and Lancome, a few well kept industry secret products and makeup artistry tricks my clients are always left feeling like their makeup vision has come to life; neat polished and defined, no matter what that vision may be.
I am based in the centre of Norwich, covering the east of England's makeup whims and requirements. Norwich is a fabulous location to enable me to easily reach the stunning selection of wedding & event venues that Norfolk and Suffolk has to offer, Voewood, Brastards, Elm's barn, Southwood hall, Cley Windmill, Chaucer Barn, Hengrave Hall, and St Giles House to name just a few of the premier locations where I can often be found attending to brides and their bridal parties.
Whatever your makeup requirement you can be confident that your face is in good hands.
