My name is Melanie and I've been a certified makeup artist in Chicago since 2011. I attended makeup school after graduating from Dominican University with my degree in Education. Makeup had always been a passion of mine, so I knew I had to pursue it somehow. I went to makeup school at night while teaching preschool full time! I attended London Eyes International School of Makeup.
Weddings are my favorite kind of events to do! I love being a small part of someones big day! I love the energy and excitement on wedding mornings! My favorite part is seeing the bride's face when she sees her hair, makeup and dress all come together! It's such a beautiful moment, and I love knowing I was a small part of that!
When I'm not doing makeup, I'm a full time flight attendant! I love traveling and makeup and I feel so blessed I've been able to turn both into my career!
Other obsessions of mine include but are not limited to, my dog Reagan, any kind of true crime series or documentary on Netflix, and wait for it......Halloween.
My guilty pleasure is staying in on a Friday night with Keith Morrison on Dateline and a glass of red wine.
