HI, I'M MELISSA!

I'm a freelance media makeup artist based out the Twin Cities. I originally started my career journey in the corporate world as an Account Executive before following my dreams and becoming a makeup artist. I graduated from Faces ETC of MN in 2014 and have been freelancing in the industry for over four years. 

My makeup style is a clean beauty look applied with a delicate touch. My goal is to always enhance my clients features to make them feel like the best versions of themselves. Clean, fresh skin with a pop of blush or lipstick is my signature style.
