Melissa is so talented!
Melissa did my makeup, my mothers makeup and my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding day. She is such a talented artist! I had never loved my makeup so much before. My skin was flawless, and my eyes looked so big - I was obsessed! I don't wear much makeup on a daily basis, and her work made me look and feel like myself. She is also very kind and considerate when COVID-19 started to interfere. Whenever an issue arose, whether it be location or numbers, we were able to work together to find a solution that worked best for the both of us. I cannot recommend Melissa more. I have attached a variety of photos from different lights/cameras to show how well the makeup translates to images :)Sent on 14/01/2021

Gorgeous wedding makeup
Melissa made me look and feel so gorgeous on my wedding day! My husband cried when he saw me during our first look and I think part of that was because of the quality of the makeup ;)
Melissa was so sweet and a pleasure to interact with over e-mail an in-person. I would work with her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone looking for wedding makeup!Sent on 10/09/2020
Melissa Makeup Artistry's reply:Thank you so much Julia! I really appreciate your kind words. You were equally a pleasure to work with & I wish you all the best as a new beautiful wifey :) Hopefully I get to do your makeup again in the future.

Hire melissa for all your makeup needs!
I initially found Melissa through Wedding Wire when I began my wedding planning journey in early 2019. I was initially drawn to her work because of the knack she seems to have for glamming you up without hiding your true beauty. I have had the privilege of working with Melissa on three occasions. First, for my engagement shoot, second, for my bridal trial/bridal shower, and third, for my wedding day. Each time, I was impressed with her punctuality, professionalism, and easygoing nature. We always have the best conversation! She is super super easy to deal with via e-mail and responds in a prompt manner. When I needed to make changes to my wedding day makeup needs, she was super accommodating and was always super polite and thorough when explaining cost and details to me. Since my wedding day was packed, I needed to pay for an early start time fee. Melissa tried to make it so that we could start later so that I wouldn’t have to pay her an extra fee - talk about an honest business woman! Every single time Melissa does my makeup, I get so many compliments about how amazing yet natural it looks. She truly understands how to enhance your natural beauty while still adding some flare and fun to your face! The quality of work that she provides for the price that she charges simply amazing. I am already trying to find reasons and occasions where I can hopefully work with her again in the future. Thank you Melisssa for helping me feel beautiful on my wedding day! Do yourself a favour and hire her for all your special occasion makeup!Sent on 18/03/2020

Thank you Melissa!!
From the initial contact to the day of our wedding, Melissa was super responsive and helpful. She did amazing make-up on my girls and I, and me being really indecisive, she knew exactly what would work for me and also listened to my opinions as well. I am extremely happy with everything Melissa did!Sent on 09/09/2019
Melissa Makeup Artistry's reply:Thanks so much Marie for your nice words!! It was a pleasure to be part of your wedding day. You and your bridal party were great! You were a gorgeous bride!! :) xo

Natural glam queen!!
Melissa did such an incredible job on myself, my mother, and my two bridesmaids. I got married July 20th, 2019 and the weather was pushing 37 degrees. Feeling like +44. My makeup stayed on the ENTIRE day! I had people at 12 am saying how perfect it looked! Her commutation was great with me from the beginning and she was great at working under pressure when time got tight! thank you so much Melissa for making me feel like a princess on my special day!Sent on 26/07/2019
