My favourite part about being a make-up artist is being able to make my clients feel like they’ve just been transformed into the most beautiful and confident version of themselves!
I completed my Professional Make-up and Hair Design/Styling courses at Kohl Make-up Academy in 2011 and continue to upskill myself by attending masterclasses, trade shows, and via online education by some of the world’s most skilled artists.
My artistic style reflects my calm personality and I’m drawn to timeless, romantic and elegant looks. I enjoy openly communicating with my clients to ensure I create the unique looks each one desires.
Melissa’s Make-up is a mobile service based in Joburg north but travels to your location of choice, offering both make-up and hairstyling for every occasion.
My make-up philosophy is centered around enhancing every client’s natural beauty and favourite features in a way that’s most complimentary to them.
With a focus on skin prep before make-up is applied, the results are glowing, healthy-looking skin and a seamless application that lasts for hours.
My kit is a well-curated selection of professional products I’ve tried and tested over the years, to ensure I achieve the best results with every application.
Kit hygiene is crucial. I pride myself on maintaining the highest standard of sanitation and cleanliness in my kit and using the cleanest tools/products on my clients, which are free from cross-contamination.
In the Kit: MAC, Bobbi Brown, Nars, BECCA, Anastasia Beverly Hills, By Terry, Stila, REN, Guinot, Paul Mitchell, Schwarzkopf, Tigi & Veaudry.
My make-up & hairstyling kit set-up is fully mobile and I’m well-equipped for almost anything on a job.
I pride myself on being punctual, reliable and organized so that I can offer the best services to my clients.
