My name is Melissa and I'm a professional make up and prosthetics artist. I have a diploma in makeup artistry, and an International Makeup Association qualification from the London School of Makeup. I have always had a passion for creative and fantasy makeup artistry, and went on to study creature FX and prosthetics at the Gorton Studio, which opened my eyes even more to the wonders of makeup and creation.
I've worked in the makeup departments on films including Star Wars IX and Marvel's Black Widow, as well as multiple music videos for artists such as JP Cooper and photo shoot campaigns for brands such as Lucy and Yak. I also love doing quirky and offbeat weddings, special events and cosplay.
I adore makeup and prosthetics, ranging from classic beauty to full creature transformations. Please get in touch to discuss any vision you might have in mind, and I would love to help make it a reality!
All makeup products I use are vegan are cruelty free.
CLASSIC AND BRIDAL
I am trained in traditional makeup techniques to create looks for any occasion! If you have any enquiries about daywear, special event or bridal makeup, please do get in touch. I particularly specialise in offbeat and quirky weddings, where I love to help bring a fantasy to life.
FANTASY AND ABSTRACT
Please get in touch to discuss any creative vision you have in mind! Whether this is in film, TV, music videos, events, cosplay and so on. I'm always happy to discuss and plan ideas around your concept.
PROSTHETICS AND SPECIAL FX
I have trained with the Gorton Studio where I learnt to create and apply prosthetics, building moulds and creature busts, and apply finishing touches such as painting, seaming and hair punching. I love working in workshops with creative teams to bring a concept to reality.
