Melinda considers happy clients to be her best asset!

It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Melinda’s Make up work. I hired Melinda as a Make Up Artist through her business Unique Make Up Artistry, where she was hired to be the make-up artist for myself, my wedding party and my close family. During the lead up to the wedding she always made herself available to bounce ideas off and on the day she was amazing to have around. Melinda showed genuine care to the anxious people in the room, she applied make up which suited each person (ages ranging from 3 – 60) and it was like having another friend in the room. I would definitely recommend her work to any person looking to hire her services. Thank you Melinda for helping my day run smoothly and making my friends and family look amazing!

Thank you so much for the Class yesterday. I personally found it very helpful, particularly the contouring and technique with the brushes (which I used to press quite firmly), as well as the eye shadow application. It was also great to have someone confirm that the foundation I was using wasn’t the perfect shade for me – I’d thought I was being way too fussy. I only very briefly chatted with the other ladies on the way to our cars and they said they really found it useful too.
