Melissa is amazing!!! I was married a few weeks ago, and not only was I thrilled about my makeup, my whole entire bridal party was!!! I had a trial run in November with Melissa, and she was so obliging and very quick to respond and kept in regular contact with me throughout the whole process. I was very overwhelmed planning a wedding so close to Christmas but with everything else chaotic, Melissa put me at ease and I knew everything was going to be awesome. She was really able to go with the flow, very professional, prompt, and prepared! My sister has already booked her for her wedding in the spring! Anytime I need professional makeup again I wouldn\\\\\\\'t dare go to anyone else but Melissa!! Thank you girl!!!

I became engaged in July and planned our wedding for Oct. 12, 2013. It was quite the whirlwind planning a wedding in two months. I searched online for a makeup artist and I was so grateful to find Melissa. She quickly responded to my request and came to my house for a trial makeup session. I was happy with the trial and booked her services. \r\nMelissa kept touching base for the next month, which really made me feel at ease. I changed my mind numerous times on hair and makeup. I even changed again the day of, and Melissa just went with it. I loved the way my makeup looked and all of the girls in my party were happy as well. I felt like I looked like me, only better than normal. \r\nIf a bride out there is looking for a great makeup artist, Melissa is wonderful. \r\nI do have a few of my wedding photos on my face book page (Temple Current), if you would like to check them out. I hope to have more soon, from the photographer, to provide to Melissa.

She forgot my wedding date- which is TODAY!! Totally unprofessional!!!! I had to text AND call her to ask where she was when she never showed up 30 minutes after she was supposed to have been here! Then she asked if I could postpone my wedding 30 minutes to accommodate her!!! Which I couldn't because I only hired the photographer for 2 hours, so thanks for ruining my wedding day Melissa.

I am recently married and have been a long time customer of Melissa when she was with Bobbi Brown and also at MAC here in Wilmington. I knew there was no one else I could trust on my wedding day. She\'s was so eager and happy to talk about the look I was trying to achieve and her talent and artistry is unmatched. I have had her do my makeup for holiday parties, birthdays, etc.. and she is always punctual and professional. She was flexible with her availability during this crazy time and I can honestly say I wouldn\'t trust anyone else on such an important day. You are in good hands with Melissa!!

Melissa did my bridal party\'s makeup a couple weeks ago and she was fabulous! Not only was she extremely professional but she was very patient cause we had a few indecisive girls in the group. The bridal party was a mix to young teenage girls, to my elderly grandmother and she treated everyone like she had known them for years and tailored the makeup to their appropriate ages. She kept everyone calm and collected and the end results were absolutely amazing!! She is truly a professional and talented artist and I would highly recommend her and I actually I did and she\'s doing my best friends wedding in March!!Thanks Melissa!!

I was married just a few weeks ago. I had sent Melissa an email inquiring about makeup services, and was surprised on how quickly she responded! (I was a bit of a neurotic bride you could say, lol) She was so prompt and flexible and willing to work around my hectic work schedule as well as planning my wedding on my own! Everything from the trial run to the day of my wedding turned out to be beyond what I had envisioned, I felt gorgeous!! She did such an incredible job on my bridesmaids and I, and she was so calm even through my anxiety. I loved having Melissa be apart of my wedding day, and I would highly recommend her to any bride who wants to look and feel her very most beautiful self!!!

Melissa is amazing at her craft. She has many years of experience and it shows. Before booking Melissa for my wedding in May, i tried several different MUA and looks but was never completely satisfied. There wasn't anything majorly wrong with my makeup done from the other artists but I never looked in the mirror and thought "Yes! This is the look I want!".

I had heard of Melissa before and seen her work through many photographer blogs, IMDB and websites so I knew she was good. When I sent her an inquiry she was super quick to respond to emails and I decided to go with her without ever meeting. I'm so glad I was able to have het beautify me for my wedding! She will look at your face and knows what will work and what won't. On the day of the wedding, she would constantly touch base with me to let me know what she was doing with the makeup and make sure I was okay with how it looked.

Another great thing about her is her expertise, she is very quick and efficient. We had allotted over 3 hours that morning in case we ran late but she showed up to my house bright and early and promptly at 5am and were finished about 2 hours later. When she was finished with my makeup, I checked myself in the mirror and can say i was 100% so happy with the results. My eyes smoky but not too dark and I still looked like myself. That was the best part; still feeling like I was me.

As brides, you have enough to worry about on your big day. If you don't want to worry about looking your best, hire Melissa as your MUA!
