MY STORY

Hi There

It's great to have you here - thanks for stopping by! My Name is Melissa, I'm 42 and I live with my husband and 2 gorgeous daughters, Neave and Lila in Norwich. I'm a Norfolk girl, and although I travelled far and wide in my earlier years, I have always come back home to this beautiful county. 

I have been working as a makeup artist for over 16 years. I started my career and completed the majority of my formal training with MAC cosmetics where my journey began in 2004. While working with the company I had the fantastic opportunity to travel the world, creating beautiful makeup for fashion shows, corporate clients and customers of the brand. I delivered talks, training and product demonstrations to hundreds of makeup lovers during my time with MAC, and fully cemented my love of the design and creativity in makeup artistry. I also discovered a real joy for making connections with people; helping women to feel their most beautiful was, and still is, hugely rewarding to me.

In 2010 I became a freelance makeup artist, initially working from a photography studio focused on corporate businesses, and where I still work as a freelance artist to this day. I design the model look for photoshoots for brands such as Lotus cars, Marie Reynolds skin care, Windsor Bishop fine jewellery, Adrian Flux insurance and Odeon cinemas. As I began to be part of studio life I also started working with brides who were looking for a professional, experienced artist to help them make their dream wedding look a beautiful, timeless reality.

I love and take pride in my work, and it has become a huge part of my identity. My commitment is delivering my clients a calm, relaxed experience with beautiful results that will fill them with confidence for their wedding, photoshoot, prom or special event.
