"Melissa was beyond amazing to work with for our winter wonderland cottage wedding!
She is so sweet, friendly, fun and professional. Melissa made my entire bridal party, family and I feel at ease and look gorgeous! My bridesmaids and family, who are very particular about their makeup and hesitant to let anyone do their makeup., couldn't stop raving about Melissa and what an incredible job she did. Melissa made us all look so fresh and natural and feel so pretty!
I am so grateful for your amazing work, the smiles and laughs on our special day!
Thank you for making us all feel so comfortable and beautiful."
I hope I get the chance to work with you again,
It was a pleasure to have you be part of our day.
"My husband and I got married August 9, 2014 at Horseshoe Valley. We used Melissa as our makeup artist and she did a FANTASTIC job! There were 7 females who all had their makeup done (Myself and 6 bridesmaids) and all of us had an incredible experience! Melissa was professional, timely, respectful, flexible, easy going and extremely skillful. Before my wedding we sat down and had a trial to figure out what I wanted and didn't want so it would be a smooth morning the day of our wedding. This was a great idea, because I felt comfortable the morning of my wedding because I knew what to expect as well I was able to leave my bridesmaids in her hands while I had my hair done and finished up some last minute details before the wedding. Melissa was easy to talk to, great to work with, and was flexible with how the girls wanted their makeup to look. The makeup was light, felt natural and lasted 12+ hours. We had an incredible day and our experience with make Me Beautiful was perfect and I would recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their wedding."
"My wedding day was the coldest day of the year, and Melissa was a ball of sunshine. She brought lightness and laughter to a day that can be stressful and nerve-wracking. Melissa was all smiles and bubbliness- she even had my mother (who was white as a ghost when she arrived) giggling and forgetting about her nervousness.
Melissa is a phenomenally talented makeup artist as well as an incredibly caring, warm and fun person to be around. Working with her will make you look and feel truly beautiful inside and out.
Thank you so much!
"I found Melissa through an online Facebook group and I was instantly blown away by her portfolio. My bridesmaids had found another makeup artist they thought they wanted to use for my wedding day, but when they saw Melissa's work they agreed she was the makeup artist we wanted. Besides a million other looks, she has the ability to make even natural looking makeup look very glamorous, which is exactly the look we were going for! Melissa is not only amazing at what she does, but she is such a kind and easy going person-which is so important for your wedding day. We had a trial before the wedding day and I immediately felt comfortable with her (despite how uncomfortable it can be having a stranger do your makeup)- we laughed and joked as we got to know each other, but still she maintained her professionalism while she created several different looks for me. She made the morning of my wedding completely care free-not only did she make me feel the most beutiful I have ever felt, but she knew exactly what to say and do to calm any nerves! My bridesmaids still rave about her talent but also what a great person she is.
Melissa I can't thank you enough for being part of my wedding day,
you truly are amazing!
"As a bride, you want to look your absolute best on your wedding day and there is a lot of pressure to do so. I'm beyond happy that I had Melissa do my makeup for my big day and felt completely confident that she would help me to look my best, and she did. She was extremely professional and definitely knew her stuff when it came to complimenting and defining my features. My makeup lasted perfectly all day and night, even with all the smiling and crying I did! As a bride, airbrushing, contouring and fake lashes are a must, and Melissa is an expert at all three! I would recommend her to any bride and hope to use her again one day."
"Thanks Melissa for making me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day!"
"Melissa Hall did my makeup for both my engagement photo shoot and my wedding day. I couldn't have been happier on either occasion! The engagement session makeup was perfect for the occasion and daytime setting. It also gave us the opportunity to discuss ideas for my wedding makeup.
The day of my wedding Melissa came to my house to do not only my makeup but also my mom's and entire wedding party. I was so pleased with her expert technique and how she completed my overall look. I felt so beautiful and was so happy with how it came together. My makeup lasted all day and night and it looked amazing in my wedding pictures. My wedding party was also highly impressed with how flexible Melissa was, working with each person to complete a look for them that was perfect to their individuality.
On top of her talented abilities, her easy going personality, sense of humour and professionalism, makes her such a pleasure to work with and share in your special occasions."
" Melissa was such a pleasure to work with. From the first email we exchanged to our trial, to the wedding day, every moment working with her was seamless. She was professional, easy going, and completely open to what I wanted as a bride and what my bridesmaids wanted for their makeup. She made the day go so smoothly and was completely understanding when things got very hectic.. My wedding day was a combination of hot humidity and the occasional rain pour, and my makeup lasted through it all. It still looked amazing at the end of the night. I would recommend Melissa to anyone for their wedding or any occasion they need a professional makeup artist service. She has an amazing talent.
"I have never been the one to love my makeup after having it done professionally. So when I met Melissa I was so excited to have found an artist that knew exactly what colours would work for me. I booked her immediately after our trial, I felt so comfortable it was like having a girlfriend over for the afternoon to do my makeup. She was able to make 5 bridesmaids, 2 Mothers and one bride (with all very different tastes) look stunning on my wedding day. She met us at our suite to get started in the morning and followed us to the salon to finish up. I loved my makeup on my wedding day. Mel was able to listen to what I wanted and modified it to make it a reality and last all day! if you're looking for a talented artist who has the skill and experience to just get it so right, Melissa Hall is your girl. Look forward to the next event to book her again!"
"Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with! From our initial correspondence to set up dates, cost, etc, Melissa was always very professional, replying promptly and thoroughly. On the day of my trial, Melissa tried various things to ensure I got the exact look I wanted. On the day of our wedding, Melissa arrived early and allowed for extra time to ensure that we would be on time, and not rushing to finish everything last minute. All of us were thrilled with Melissa's work, and got the exact looks we were looking for. Melissa was also very accommodating fitting in my nieces and making them feel extra special as well. I would absolutely recommend Melissa, and look forward to working with her again in the future."
I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful job you did on the girls and myself on our wedding day. The girls looked flawless and so beautiful and I got a lot of compliments as well! You were really fun and professional and I'm so happy with the way things worked out! Thank you for being so flexible with the location, it worked out beautifully. And my Husband did cry when he saw me...so that's all that counts!!! lol
Just wanted to thank you for the makeup lesson. I learned so much from you.You made me feel relaxed & answered all my questions. I felt very confident that I could do it. (I did practice a few times) I did my makeup for my son's wedding & it turned out wonderful.
I received so many compliments & I felt truly beautiful.
Thank you for the wonderful makeup application you did for my corporate video, it looks wonderful! You were able to quickly assist me with visualizing the look and knew exactly which features to play up so the look held up to the cinematic camera yet maintained a professional appearance.
I also really appreciate your attention to the cleanliness of yourself and your makeup brushes. As a dental hygienist I always notice if people take the time and effort to be conscientious of this and you certainly did!
Melissa you are everything a makeup artist should be- creative and professional! Thank you again for your fine work that lasted through the entire shoot-even though I was wearing masks- and straight through till bedtime when I washed it away.
Thank you again for doing such an amazing job.
Everyone just loved their makeup and commented on how sweet
of a person you are.
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful makeup application that you did for Ahseea, Ayesha and me for Ayesha's wedding on Sept. 1. She looked radiant and I have not looked so alive in the last 20 years. I tend to wear no makeup other than lipstick because I can't be bothered and am highly untalented. I might have to make an exception again for special occasions if I can make the trip from B.C. to Barrie to have you transform me.
"From the first time we communicated, I knew that Melissa was the makeup artist I HAD to have for my engagement photos and wedding. Melissa was friendly, professional, classy and an overall beautiful person. She came to my house for my engagement photos and I couldn't have been happier. Melissa was able to create a look that was unique to me, my personality and style. On the day of my wedding Melissa arrived on time and prepared at the salon. She worked tirelessly on my six bridesmaids, my flower girl, my mom, and myself. Melissa followed us from the salon to our house to finish up. We all looked so stunningly beautiful in our own way. I would recommend Melissa to anyone and I will ask her to do my makeup for any future events."
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Thank you everyone for your help in creating these spots. They were a lot of fun, and made even more enjoyable by working with a great team of professionals. Even more importantly:
The clients are thrilled with them!
Working with Melissa for my wedding was easy, professional, and fun-from the trial to the big day, she was great at communicating, making sure that she understood what I wanted, and delivering on that. Everyone was very happy with how their makeup turned out, especially me, and really appreciated Melissa's expertise and tips as they were not
only fantastic for getting through the day but could be applied to any makeup worthy occasion. And, having spent the better part of the morning with us on a very important occasion, Melissa's friendly personality and easy-going attitude really helped to set us off on the right note. I would be happy to work with her again and would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
Working with Melissa in preparation for my engagement photos was a pleasure. She arrived at my doorstep promptly and went over inspiration photos with me and helped me determine what would be the best for me and for the occasion. She took her time and made sure everything was perfect, touching up or adjusting where I wanted/needed until we were both satisfied! She was friendly, funny, and wonderful to work with. She made the experience enjoyable and even educational! I was beyond thrilled with her work and would happily book her again!
Melissa is a true professional from the get go. I found her services on LinkedIn and I'm truly glad that I was able to connect with her. She was willing to provide me with all the essential information that I needed to ensure I could make the right decision. I had the opportunity to meet with her for a makeup consultation and the rest was history. Her incredible cheerful and warm personality definitely helped me feel completely comfortable. On the day of my wedding, she was extremely punctual providing beauty services to my two bridesmaids. She did my makeup so beautifully and was more than pleased, she captured the glamorous look that I wanted. I highly recommend her today person who would like to feel beautiful
from the core. She is professional and a seasoned makeup artist. Thanks again for everything- and I hope to work with you again in the future.
