Melanie made me feel like the prettiest girl in town. She made me look flawless, without looking like I had too much makeup. She knows what she is doing. So, if you’re that person who doesn’t know what they want, you can trust her to be that artist! If you just peep my photos, my face is just glowing! And luckily, I booked her 1.5 years in advance. That’s how in demand she is in!
Trust me! You won’t disappoint! I have done and seen makeup on people and clients, and I can truly say my overall experience with Melanie was absolutely great, from our trial to my big day! I found Melanie on IG and hired her my hair and makeup. I told her my style and type of look and she delivered! I thought I was a perfectionist, but so is Melanie. :D She’s not going to leave you until you feel 100% ready to walk down that aisle. And I was ready 5 hours before my I do! My make up and hair lasted all day and all night! I usually sweat around my face and I would have to reapply my makeup but on this day, my face beat by Melanie, I didn’t have to reapply anything. I only had to blot my sweat away bc I was dancing all day. And when I look back at my photos, all my makeup was still there and my hair still intact. Let’s just say I had to deep scrub my makeup off at the end of the night. To top it off, her makeup products were safe and I didn’t have any skin reaction(s). I received so many nice compliments from my guests - my make-up look still looks like me, and no clown business! Melanie enhanced and beautified my features! Thank you for making me extra stunning and gorgeous on my wedding day! :) To all the future brides: go book now before Melanie becomes unavailable!
Melanie, Melanie, Melanie....I cant put into words how talented this women right here is! She did such an amazzzzzing job with us October 5th, 2018. There were 7 of us girls (bride, bridesmaid mom, grooms mother, and 4 bridesmaid) she did each & everyone of us back to back with set time. Her work is flawless...mind you I got my make up done early @ 930am & the wedding didn’t start until 430pm. My makeup lasted all night & through the day with my tears & sweat. Trust me even through the whole day of my makeup it even lasted the next day still looking amazing. & believe it I had th makeup on the next day too. I’m not one to wear lots of make up so I asked to look natural but also like I’m wearing something and she did the job! She made it happen alllll the way! It’s a bummer she’s not located here in San Jose otherwise I’ll be driving to her house every morning before work to get my makeup done. Lol. She’s soooo sweet & relatable. Never a dull moment when she does your makeup. You’re so interested & entertained the whole way through & then she’s like “boom your done!” You look in the mirror & you’re like “she got skills!” Everyone at the wedding was in awe of the bridesmaids makeup & commented so much about how we looked flawless. Even after till this day people who are at this wedding says “hey who did your make up that one time” I say BeautybyMelanie hooked me up. Here’s her instagram follow her- message her. She commuted that time so I would def. let her know I’m advance if you need her service. Overall I’m so happy with the outcome & will never forget what & how she made me feel that day....if you are reading this Melanie...girl you are the best hands down! & so beautiful your soul, your heart, everything. For those who are wondering if you should book her. YOU SHOULD! No questions asked...just do it. I promise she will not let you down!
I can't recall how I found Melanie, I think I was referred to her by another makeup/hair artist who was unavailable. As soon as I scrolled through Melanie's Instagram and saw all of the beautiful brides she's worked on, I was instantly sold and emailed her immediately, crossing my fingers that she was available for our wedding date. She's had 10+ years of experience, so I completely trusted her! Melanie did an amazing job for my 2 bridesmaids and I. My wedding was in Napa at 10am. Melanie was such a good sport about starting as early at 2am (she drove all the way to Napa from the Bay Area!) She was so friendly and kind-hearted, both at the bridal makeup/hair trial (about 1 month prior to my wedding) and on the morning of the wedding. And the makeup and hair lasted all day and into the night. I didn't want to wash it off at the end of the night! And one more thing: initially I didn't want to hire a makeup/hair artist for my wedding. I thought I'd go cheap and just watch a few YouTube tutorials, then do my own makeup and hair on the morning of. My best girlfriend (also one of my bridesmaids) pushed me into hiring an artist because she told me how stressed I would be on the morning of my wedding. And you know what? She was right. It was such a blessing to just relax on the morning of my wedding as Melanie did her magic on me. Honestly, the money was completely worth it. Thank you so much Melanie! I felt like princess on my special day!
Melanie transformed my bare face into a stunning vision with her careful eye for detail and color. She has the ability to transform you without using a heavy hand but instead enhancing your features. Melanie is not only talented in her craft but she is so pleasant to work with her easygoing and humorous personality. I was happy, comfortable, and confident in the way I looked at my engagement shoot and throughout my wedding day. And don’t stress about touch-ups since her magnificent face art is long lasting since the products she uses are great high-end quality.
