Professional Makeup Artist
Melissa is a complete all star and sweater than you can imagine. She's got a fantastic eye for subtle, natural looks with a real passion for makeup. In her own words "I love being a makeup artist, it allows me to create something beautiful, while thrilling the client in the process. It fills my cup, challenges me, it delights me in a way that nothing else can!" She is so skilled, I've recently brought her on as our artist educator, taking our newest artists through training. In addition to working for Smashbox Cosmetics, Melissa has a long list of editorial work; including underwater photo shoots! She's had her work published in numerous magazines, on runways and even in a murder mystery on the Bio Channel! [I thought that was the coolest thing when I brought her on!] On top of being a stellar makeup artist she is also a mom to two of the most adorable little babes this side of the state. She's obsessed with fitness, laughing and making people feel beautiful. I am so excited to introduce you to her, I just know you'll love how fabulous she'll make you feel.
"Special shout out to my makeup maven, Melissa, who took the time out to listen to each of us, learn about our personalities & skin types and adapted her makeup to fit them. On top of her serious makeup skills she was also just so much fun to have join our morning. Really, can't say enough positive things about my interactions with Alison Harper & Company!"
