Book Melanie for your wedding!

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!

The Beauty Gem of the Bay Area

There are not enough words to explain how amazing Melanie is. From the moment she walked through the door, her energy was calming and I knew that myself, my bridesmaids & mother were in the best hands. From excited tears, to tears of missing my passed father the day of my wedding, the makeup held through~ maybe even looked better by the end of the night!! And don't even get me started on what a phenomenal job she did on my hair. With the help of some extensions, I truly felt that her work made me look and feel like a queen. If I could give her more stars I would do it in a heartbeat. You WILL have the best of the best on your big day if you choose Melanie like I did.

The Best of the Best!!

Melanie is the best of the best! I hired her to do our wedding party hair and makeup. She's very professional and punctual! She's very efficient as we got done way ahead of time! The wedding party was able to relax and do other things before the ceremony. She was so sweet, she was able to squeeze in a hair-do for one of the flower girls, and still got done early:) Everyone was gorgeous and we received compliments all day! She made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. My make-up stayed on all through the tears!! She's super sweet and made sure she meets our expectations while at the same time giving her professional advise. I will definitely hire Melanie again for all our future events!!

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!

She is the best!

Melanie did an amazing job doing my hair and makeup during my wedding on 1/4/19. She worked very fast and I had so much time just relaxing and taking pictures while my other bridesmaids get ready. Melanie also recommended to do a side low bun when I showed her my dress instead of having my hair down. I'm so glad I listened to her.. She knows what looks best because of her experience. I highly recommend her. Every bride needs to feel confident and beautiful on their wedding day and Melanie gave me that feeling on the most special day of my life. ❤️

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Melanie was amazing!!! I've seen her work on IG and instantly loved her talent. I booked her for my wedding hair & makeup and she made everyone look GORGEOUS! Everything lasted over 8 hours. Thank you so much, Melanie'

I mean why wouldn’t you book her?

I first found Melanie on IG then later while looking through my videographers preferred vendors list I saw her name. I took it as a sign and reached out to her. I met her on the day of my trial hair & makeup and I just immediately knew my wedding day was going to be a good day. Not only do you need to have a good hair & makeup artist, it needs to be someone you can trust. I never once told her how to do anything because she’s the professional. On the day of she did such an amazing job on my hair & makeup. She also did my 6 bridesmaids & they just loved it. She began make up on my first bridesmaid at 6 am. And after the wedding at 2:30 am I remember looking over at her and asking her if she had touched it up her self because she still looked flawless. Just 4 hours shy of 24 hours with no touch ups and we still looked amazing!! All of this because Melanie is truly amazing & talented.

Beautiful INSIDE and OUT

As many have already mentioned, Melanie is amazing! Words cannot describe how much I love her and how happy I am that she was a part of my special day! Melanie is one of the sweetest, funniest, brightest people I have ever met. From the moment I reached out to her to the moment we met for my trial session, I never had a doubt that she would be the best. We clicked INSTANTLY and the rest is history. As someone who wears very minimal makeup on a daily basis, I did not think the look she created for me was possible, but of course Melanie blew me away! My bridesmaids looked beautiful and my wedding GLAM was ON POINT! It lasted all night with no touch-ups. I highly recommend Melanie and will always recommend her to any friends or family looking for makeup services. Not only did I find a wonderful makeup artist, but I ended up gaining a precious friendship with a beautiful soul. I love you Melanie!

She is amazing!

Words can’t express how happy I am to have chosen Melanie to glam me up for my special day! Her bright personality and her amazing talent! She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! Love her!!

Amazing Makeup Artist (and person)

Where do I begin with how amazing Melanie is...she had me feeling my most beautiful on my wedding day. She knows how to highlight all the right features and cover any imperfections. I still looked like myself, but just a better more glamorous version (which is obviously the goal). She also did the makeup on all 7 of my bridesmaids, my mom and my step mom...and everyone looked beautiful! In a nutshell, if you're lucky enough to have a date where she is available you need to book her. Because if you don't someone else will. Thanks again Melanie! xoxo, Mika

SUPER Day

Melanie is amazing!! She's professional, on time, sweet, and fun to work with. Melanie and my mom had good laughs. She did an amazing job on my bridal party, my mom, MIL, and of course, myself. I felt like a true bride. I don't know how she does it, but my make up lasted all night even after I was sweating so much from dancing.

Hands Down THE Best Make-Up Artist

One of the best decision ever!! In all modesty, I was a damn beautiful bride and I owe it to her. I have never looked and felt so beautiful getting up at 3am on less than 2 hours of sleep. In addition, she did an amazing job on my bridesmaids, both mothers and the rest of the ladies on both sides of the family. Melanie is one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met and although she is kind, funny, down to earth and is accommodating she is also very professional and punctual. To date, Melanie has done my make-up 3x and on all three occasions her make-up has lasted the entire day!! (One of those occasions was spent outdoor in the San Francisco wind and light rain for an engagement photo shoot). She is truly a talented and skilled artist. So if you’re thinking about booking her you better do it quick. Her process from the date of inquiry to getting a contract executed is seamless. My advice: trust her to work her magic on you. You won't regret it. I promise.

Amazing job!

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, you’re one talented soul!

Melanie is such an amazing person with a beautiful heart and soul. She was so easy to communicate with from the first e-mail to my wedding day. I was so lucky to have her as my make up and hair artist the day of my wedding, I don’t know if I could trust anyone else to accomplish my dream looks for future occasions in my life. Melanie’s work is unique, crafty and overall flawless in person and pictured. She is truly talented at what she does and her talent shined when she did 7 bridesmaids hair, 1 mother of bride, 1 groom of bride and 1 grandmother of groom all in one morning. She showed up on time and ready to go the morning of my wedding and made magic happen with each and every woman that was part of our wedding party. I was truly amazed with how long everyone’s hair was styled and how our make up stayed up until the very end of the night! I’m truly blessed to have met Melanie and definitely plan to hire her for more occasions. Thank you so much girl, your talents are a dream come true! :)

LOVED my hair and makeup!!

As soon as I got engaged in July 2016, I immediately started searching for a makeup artist. I wanted someone who was able to work with my Asian features (i.e. round face, high cheekbones, almond eyes). I discovered Melanie when a fashion blogger I was following on IG had just gotten married and her features were similar to mine and her wedding makeup was gorgeous and flawless. I contacted Melanie for a quote and booked her right away which was also a year before my wedding date on February 17, 2018. As I anxiously waited for my wedding date, I enjoyed all of the bridal looks Melanie posted on IG of her brides and I couldn't wait for her to do my hair and makeup. The morning of my wedding date, Melanie arrived bright and early to work on my bridesmaids and me. While she worked on all of our hair and makeup, she was so laid back and fun to talk to. We all really enjoyed her company and her easygoing personality. Melanie did an AMAZING job on everyone and we were all extremely happy with how our makeup and hair turned out. Her eyebrow skills are especially fantastic. I am huge on eyebrows and believe they are one of the most important features on the face and Melanie did an excellent job on everyone's eyebrows. Best part was our makeup stayed put the entire day and night. My eyeliner did not smear or smudge and I've always had that problem when doing my own makeup. Although our lipsticks did fade, but that was because we were constantly wiping them while eating and drinking. Everything else did not budge. Pictures don't really do justice to how my makeup looked in person. I received compliments from all of my guests for my hair and makeup and how good it still looked at the end of the night. I would HIGHLY recommend Melanie. Thank you again Melanie!!

Melanie is THE BEST!

Melanie did my makeup for my wedding shower and wedding and she is truly talented at what she does. I'm pretty simple and plain and I told her I wanted to look like me but flawless and she delivered. The makeup lasted all day and all night! When I look at the pictures from my wedding and see me and my bridesmaids I tell myself, "Damn, we look HELLA good!" I told people, if you're not going to book Melanie for your wedding, you're not planning your wedding right.

Melanie is the best!

Melanie arrived on time and was super easy to work with! She did an amazing job on my hair and makeup, which lasted the whole day even through all the crying. She also did hair for 3 of my bridesmaids and makeup for my mother in law and one sponsor. I am so glad I decided to go with Melanie for my wedding because she was definitely worth it!

Melanie is the real deal!

Melanie is an amazing and talented makeup artist! She’s down-to-earth, accommodating and an absolute pleasure to work with. I instantly hit it off with her and she made me feel like we’ve been friends forever. She makes you feel beautiful inside and out because she has genuine positive energy. Im so grateful to have had Melanie glam me up for my wedding day. She gave me advice on how to upkeep my makeup throughout the day, but I didn’t actually need it because my makeup continued to look amazing up until the wee hours of the night. She’s fabulous and you won’t be disappointed by her work!
