Slayed by Melanie

I was so calm all morning because I knew I was in such great hands. My makeup looked great all day and night long with no touch up. When Mel told me that her make up will last until the next day, she didn’t lie. Our wedding is in Walnut Creek and it was an outside ceremony with almost 100 degrees weather but my make up still looked flawless until the end of our reception. I can't recommend Mel enough. Not only she is so talented at her craft and you can tell she really loves what she does, but she really made me feel like Beyonce that day. She had my back during the most awkward moment. She has a beautiful soul and her work really reflects that. If you're thinking of booking Mel, act quick before she gets booked up! She will be my go-to for everything!

Melanie does wonders!

Melanie is absolutely amazing! I contacted her about a year ago for my wedding. She was easy to communicate with and answered any questions I had. I went ahead and booked her for my make up trial for engagement shoot too and loved the look. She knew not to over do it for the shoot and save the glitz n' glam for wedding day. And I couldn't agree more. She made me look GOOD! A month before the wedding I had a couple changes and questions and she was super nice and accommodating. There were 6 of us in total to get hair and make up done. Melanie had a second person, Cathleen, to help her out on the day of the wedding and both did an amazing job. We started at 5am and finished by 8/8:30am with plenty of time to spare. I had asked about touch up make up but she said no need and was confident that her make up stays all day long. It has been tested! My make up lasted all day and night! Everyone commented on how well the make up looked that day and I've never felt more beautiful. Thank you Melanie!!

Melanie is amazing!!!

I don’t know where to even begin because Melanie is absolutely amazing!!! I have been following Melanie’s Instagram for a few years now and knew that I would contact her when I was going to get married... she was definitely one of the first few vendors I contacted! Melanie is so sweet and made all of us feel so comfortable! In regards to Melanie’s work, she is magical!!! I told her that I wanted natural looks for all my events and she did just that and I received a ton of compliments! Not only is her work amazing but it really lasts all day!!! On the day of my wedding, Melanie did my makeup at 4 am and it stayed perfect all day until I removed it at midnight!!! I can’t wait to work with Melanie again for future events!

So talented!

Melanie was so awesome! Morning of the big wedding day, Melanie showed up at our hotel room right on time. She did my hair and makeup along with three bridesmaids and my mothers make up. We all needed to be ready by 10am and she made it happen. I couldn't believe how much she can do in such a short time. She was very understanding and accommodating of our tight schedule that morning. I wanted something a little more than just neutral plus no shimmer and she worked her magic! My hair and make up literally held up from 9:30am until 1am, which is so crazy but of course in a good way. I loved it so much it was so sad washing it all away. Seriously, Melanie is beyond talented and she has such a sweet heart. She really made me feel so beautiful on my special day. Thank you so much girl! :)

She works MAGIC!!

As soon as I set a wedding date I knew I wanted Melanie to do my hair and makeup. Booking her for my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made. She was super professional and fun and made me feel at ease the entire morning. When it came to how I wanted my hair and makeup I really just trusted her and I am so glad I did! She knows exactly what she’s doing and what looks best and I swear she works magic! My hair and makeup were GORGEOUS and lasted all night! Through all my happy tears of my wedding day, all the hugs and kisses, my makeup did not move one bit. If I could give her more stars I would because she is incredible!

Hands down, thee best in town!!

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!

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.
