Melinda is my preferred hair & makeup artist. It goes without saying that she is always punctual, professional and proficient in her craft. Moreover, Melinda has a unique capacity to imbue any set with her quiet confidence and excels when working with talent of any caliber or celebrity. Beyond her outstanding performance as a hair & makeup artist, Melinda has also proved herself to be a remarkable asset to the production process. Along with her good humor and robust work ethic, Melinda brings with her excellent organization skills and has been willing and capable to adopt and/or adapt to any challenge. I recommend her services without hesitation.
Recently I had the pleasure of having my makeup done by Melinda for my first actors Headshots. I was just so happy with the finished look which made me feel really confident going into the shoot.
One of the great things about working with Mel, is that she doesn’t have a “one look suits all” approach to her clients. She really takes the time to understand what it is that you want from your makeup and what she can do to make sure you are 100% happy with the finished look. Mel tailors the makeup for each client, she is able to recognize what makes you unique and knows how to enhance your features to make you feel beautiful.
Mel really puts a strong focus on understanding what it is that you want. For me as someone who is quite fair I was so glad that Mel didn’t try to put too much makeup on me. It didn’t feel or look like I was wearing a mask, it was natural just as I wanted. I’m so glad that I had Mel do my makeup for my shoot. I was so much more relaxed knowing that my makeup was just as I wanted.
I would highly recommend Mel for anyone looking to get their makeup done for any occasion, she is professional, friendly, extremely talented and you will walk out feeling absolutely beautiful!
I absolutely loved my makeup for my head shot photo shoot. Melinda created the exact look I wanted and the makeup was flawless!
I was so happy and comfortable in my skin and had so many comments afterwards about how great the makeup looked!
Melinda is a genuine and highly talented makeup artist who not only did the job, but did it superb. I really liked how she gave me many options of how she applied the make-up (for e.g. darkness of eyebrows, liner of under eye etc.) which made me feel very comfortable. I don’t usually come across a makeup artist that gives you these options and can still deliver!
Highly Recommend for anyone seeking a Makeup Artist!!!!
Melinda is a very talented makeup artist, I looked so natural, I wore my makeup for the photoshoot, went to the beach in the heat and still at 7pm that evening a friend commented on how great my makeup looked even after nearly 12 hours since it was done. As a bonus Melinda is a beautiful soul, so gentle, caring and understanding.
Mel made getting hair and makeup done such a breeze. Mel was very welcoming and easy going. I’ll also add that Mel kept me informed and updated through the whole process leading up to the shoot. Very talented hair and makeup artist. Thanks Mel

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mel throughout the years. Her talent as a Make up artist is highly recommended. Not only does she make you feel gorgeous!, she is so friendly and professional to work with and you know the end results is just going to be amazing!
I absolutely love the way Melinda did my wedding make up! The mineral make up she used felt so light (like I wasn’t even wearing make up at all!), yet provided excellent coverage, while still looking natural. I particularly loved my “smokey eyes” and lash extensions. They made me feel very glamorous! My make up stayed put the whole day & looked amazing! Melinda was also an absolute delight to work with. I would certainly recommend her, whatever your make up needs. I have since purchased some of this mineral make up and am throughly enjoying it!
It is hard to believe, this time three weeks ago, Aaron & I just finished celebrating our wedding day. We really had the most amazing day and wanted to thank-you for being a part of it. Apologies for the belated thanks, but with the honeymoon and moving house we just haven’t had the chance to thank those that made the day itself so enjoyable and run so smoothly.
I was so happy with how our make-up turned out, you really made me feel so beautiful. And those fake eyelashes, I just LOVE! We received so many compliments through-out the day, our skin was just glowing. It lasted perfectly during the day (despite the heat & tears), so well it was a shame to take it off at night! Thanks for working your magic on us and being an absolute pleasure to work with.
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Melinda for the past 5 years after having met her on a shoot for my son. I was greatful for her warmth of character and genuine approach back then, and that perception has grown into a deeper respect on a professional level. It is rare to find someone with so many years of experience who is still in touch with the latest trends and techniques. Melinda’s authentic approach is a credit to the service she offers, and her passion for make up sees her continually investing in nothing but the best products for her clients. As a co-worker, I have always found her to be professional and reliable, and in all honesty, the best make up artist I have ever had the privilege of working with.
I had the pleasure of having my make up done by Melinda for a mother and daughter photo shoot I was given for Mother’s Day. Let me just say I was completely amazed by my transformation from ordinary to “WOW”!
I have the photos hanging up on my walls at home and everybody comments on just how stunning I looked. Melinda did a fabulous job of not only applying my make up but making me feel very comfortable. My only regret is that I didn’t know about her on my wedding day!
Thanks Mel, you’re amazing!
