About

"Custom Luxurious Experiences For Brides Around The World."

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!

Amazing Makeup Artist ????
Melanie provided me with an all star EXPERIENCE !! I walked out of her chair feeling like Beyoncé okay! I am big on customer service and Melanie went above and beyond my expectations. She was so professional, respectful, on time, made sure I felt comfortable and truly cares about you throughout the whole process! So so happy with choosing her for my engagement photos and wedding. She loves what she does and it shows. Money well spent!! If you’re reading this, BOOK HER ????

Wafer, the fact that you left my chair feeling like a superstar means I accomplished my mission! I am absolutely joyous that you were pleased with your experience. I had a ball taking care of you, designing looks 1 AND 2 for your wedding and then watching you make those FIRE entrances TWICE!! Thank you for inviting me to be a part of such an incredible occasion! I hope to have the opportunity to serve you in the future!!

Melanie is better than the hype! There aren't enough words to describe her black excellence!!!!
Melanie is better than the hype, she will give you LIFE on your wedding day!!!! I’ll be honest I’m not really a make up person so when it came to this aspect of my wedding I was a little worried. I wanted to look stunning, but I didn’t want to feel like I was wearing a ton of makeup or feel like I didn’t look like myself. The first day Melanie and I spoke all the concerns I had dissipated! She made me feel so comfortable and she just understood exactly what I wanted. On our wedding day, she had my wife and I looking like true queens!!! Our makeup was absolutely breathtaking!!!! Melanie is incredibly talented and knows exactly how to bring out the natural beauty in you!!! The only thing that may come close to her talent is her professionalism! She is extremely thorough, always on time, very professional, and goes beyond what you expect. She came with me to one of my dress fittings so she knew how to help bustle my dress on my wedding day. On our wedding day, she not only did my makeup but help with my dress, hair, veil and made sure I looked my best for EVERY photo! I also just have to say she is one of THE most thoughtful people you will ever meet!!! She will call and text just to see how you're doing leading up to the day. She is genuinely thoughtful and really cares about your special day. She doesn’t make you feel like just another bride. She truly has a beautiful spirit that just fills the room the moment she walks in. Trust me you don’t want anyone else, Melanie is exactly who you want to be apart of your big day!!! I guarantee she will be one of the BEST decisions you make for your wedding!!!

Best Bridal Makeup Artist
Melanie is nothing short of AMAZING! From our first consultation I was impressed by her knowledge and professionalism. After my bridal consultation I was sure that I made the best decision of trusting her with my makeup and hair for my wedding day. On the day her calm personality made me feel so relaxed while I sat in her chair letting her work her magic. My makeup turned out flawless and not overdone, the hair was perfect. I felt absolutely beautiful. She's the BEST!

Fantastic Service, Above & Beyond
Melanie is more than a make-up artist. She went above and beyond on my wedding day to not only have me looking spectacular, but also feeling confident and looking my best every step of the way. From letters, to cute gifts leading up to and on my wedding day, she set a standard of professionalism and luxurious service. She is a master of her craft and knew exactly how to have me looking great without being overdone on my big day. She also did a great job with my bridal party! I highly recommend Brides by Melanie B.

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.

Amazing
Melanie is everything I imagine and more???? When I first spoke to Melanie on the phone I knew just from the questions and her vibe that she was the one. Searching for a makeup artist is like looking for your wedding dress, your dress and your makeup needs to be fabulous! Especially on your wedding day. Melanie did just that! She made my makeup fabulous! Melanie is very professional, organized, prompt and prepared for everything. Melanie is overall amazing! Melanie was more than just my makeup artist the day of my wedding. Melanie went above beyond the day of my wedding. She has wonderful personality. I highly recommend Melanie.

Picture Perfect
I was asked if I had a make up artist and my reply was No. I was referred to Melanie in hopes that she would be apart of our journey. During our initial call, I had Melanie on the phone for a little over an hour telling her my life story and what my vision was for my special day. Simplicity! That was what I wanted to focus on. I wanted a natural look that had a pop of color. Melanie was not only patient with me, but she really pulled through my vision. So much so that my now husband LOVED my look during our engagement photos. (If anyone knows him, they know that he is more of a natural beauty type of guy) Melanie's professionalism and attention to detail made my experience working with her all worth while. She truely makes you feel like a nubian QUEEN! You literally get out of her chair feeling like you don't have anything on your face, but once you look in the mirror - pure perfection. Melanie does not just add color to a blank canvas, but more so reactivates the melanin beauty. Thank you soooo much for being apart of this journey and helping us to become The Jacksons!

Melanie the Gem!
Melanie, oh Melanie! I first spoke to Melanie on the phone in November of 2018. I found her on social media and admired her work. She just showed the beauty of her brides naturally; that was exactly what I was looking for especially for my wedding day. Speaking to her on the phone her voice was so soothing and re- assuring. The conversation we had assured me that she was not just going looking to get paid. It was a hard time financially planning my wedding; but God provides. Fast forward to April 2019 about a month before my nuptials I reached back out to her and she was available. I booked her right then and there. She walked me through the process. She was very informative. When I had my last minute engagement shoot she came to my parents home to do my trial. My father was amazed with the makeup, seeing that he prefers a bare face. I knew my wedding day would be wonderful due to Melanie’s aura, promptness, and energy. The days leading up to the day Melanie initiated contact with my other vendors to ensure my day was smooth and stress free. Melanie is so vested in her bride’s experience that when I informed her I did not have a garter she purchased one for me. The day of the wedding my bridal party had no complaints they respected her professionalism and so did I. Melanie is truly an amazing artist and goes beyond her role, when I had an issue the day of my wedding she sat in my limo with me to keep me at peace! She did not have to do it but she did and I am thankful for that. Icing on the cake is when she came back to the venue at 10:00pm to deliver my lipstick and lipliner! I tell you, you get more than what you pay for with Melanie. She is now my makeup artist forfuture events. May God continue to bless and keep you.
