Brides By Melanie B.
I specialize in designing natural, yet glamourous looks for my brides. My clientele select my services because they notice that my brides are radiant and beautiful, yet they do not appear to be heavily painted. I have mastered the art of being able to enhance my brides features in a way that is flattering, appropriate for professional flash photography, yet does not look heavily applied. If you are that bride who absolutely loves makeup and craves full on glam, however, I have got you covered!
Having trouble deciding on "the dress?" I also offer concierge services, where I can assist you in shopping for your perfect wedding gown! While shopping for your wedding gown can be exciting, it can also be a source of stress and anxiety for brides. This is particularly the case when a bride is unsure of which styles are most flattering to her figure and body type. In addition, having family members, friends or even salespersons who may make you feel rushed or pressured, can result in you choosing a gown that you are not 100% thrilled about. Your wedding day is the single most photographed event in your life, so you want to nail it! Allow me to make the event fun and stress free for you!

Best Vendor Ever!
Melanie was truly a pleasure to work with! I met Melanie at a MunaLuchi Serenade event. When meeting her, I was apprehensive about having someone to do makeup due to prior negative experiences. Yet, was I in for a huge surprise! I am a real glam girl, but I love to look like myself after getting my makeup done professionally. Melanie executed the look I asked for perfectly!
After the event, Melanie stayed in contact with me. This allowed me to inquiry about her services for my big day with ease. She is truly a professional and expert when it comes to knowledge of her craft and her business practices. After solidifying her services for my wedding day (services for my mother, daughters, and I), I truly felt like we were now a part of the “Makeup By Melanie” family. She stayed in contact with me consistently until the big day (emails, calls, text messages, etc. just to ask to check in). She even sent me a few treats leading up to my big day that certainly made me feel special. Melanie also provided me with advice/recommendations for other vendors that I used on my wedding day.
Just when I thought she couldn’t get any better, Melanie took her services even further on our big day! She wasn’t just my makeup artist, she was willing to help wherever she was needed (my dress, hair, etc.). My mother and I couldn’t have been more pleased with our makeup and how great it kept from 7am until 10pm!
Melanie is the REAL DEAL and a true blessing to her brides! She was certainly the best vendor I booked on my wedding day!
Look No Further
You ever meet someone and it just feels right? Well that's how you know it is right! I attended a luxury bridal event at the legendary jeanralphthurin boutique.
So I arrived along with my mom, my sis and best friend. We conversed with other attendees and flowed into the room where I'd meet a woman whom is much more than a makeup artist. Now when I tell yall I did my homework, I did my homework! Planning a wedding of what my now husband wanted, was not easy lol But we made it! So here is this makeup artist, creating an experience starting off by offering us cottonandy cocktails..Now who does that? #MelanieB that's who! I'm thinking she must really have something to offer to put forth such thoughtful effort. After some time of talking and looking over her impressive portfolio, I realize I made a conscious note to contact her on Monday to inquire services. In my head I'm thinking wow, look at how the universe is working or maybe it was my grandfather's way of telling me to go with my gut! We exchanged contacts and she scheduled a 1:1 consultation with me for the following Monday.
The time came for us to have a "brief" touch base but when you just vibe with someone, the conversation is ongoing. We talked about EVERYTHING and from that moment forward I knew I wanted her by side on one of the most monumental moments of my life. Truth be told, her calm spirit always kept me grounded. Everytime I speak with her she provides clarity, professionalism and guidance towards whatever I need. It really showed throughout the past 9 months of meeting her. Not only did she provide unbeatable (no pun intended) makeup services that make you look and feel like your natural self and she went above and beyond to ensure myself and my fiance were well taken care of.
Oh wait, did I mention she's a #JaneOfAllTrades? If no one is around, she steps in to save the day! She's constantly adding to her portfolio. No matter the task or the weather, she literally held me down! I understand people may be hesitant to move forward with any particular vendor especially when it pertains to your wedding but trust me, I went with my gut and had my expectations superseded. Choosing Melanie as your artist will leave you with a peace of mind. There's no price to match that!

Amazing Professionalism !
Melanie will exceed all your expectations. She is knowledgeable not only about makeup, but stresses the importance of skin care and educating her clients about her craft. She went above and beyond for me on the day of my wedding, staying well past the ceremony to not only to help with any touch ups that were needed, but to lend support in so many other ways- checking in with me to see how I was feeling, helping to arrange my dress, etc. She helped to make the women in my family visually the best versions of ourselves for one magical day. She is a beautiful person, inside and out and you would be so lucky to have her on your team for your wedding or other event. I could not recommend her more.
