  • After looking online for a makeup artist for my wedding, I came across Bridal Makeup by Meli. I loved all of her pictures of the natural, classic and elegant makeup she did. All of the women looked so beautiful. After reviewing her website and reading her words, I only called her. From the moment we spoke, it was like we were old friends and had a lot of the same ideas. Meli was so warm and friendly that I had a feeling in my gut that she was the one. I booked Meli for a trial for me and my Matron of Honor. We loved her and her work, which made us feel beautiful! I texted her when I had questions or felt stressed, and she was always there with answers and reassurance. I picked the best makeup artist for me and it would not have been the same without her! I highly recommend Bridal Makeup by Meli for anyone that wants to look and feel beautiful on their wedding day or any occasion! Thank you Meli! You are the best!!

    Hi Debbie, thank you so very much for your kind words and also posting the photos to this review! I am happy you felt connected since our first phone call as I also knew I was destined to work with you on your special day (especially as I told you that your wedding date happens to be my lucky numbers :) !!). I'm also thrilled that both you and Sue loved the makeup! Thank you for everything and I hope to stay in touch! :) xo, Meli

  • Meli was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. I went for my trial in September 2019 and booked her on the spot! I told her that I wanted a more natural look, and she absolutely crushed it. She was such a pleasure to work with and was in constant communication with me leading up to my wedding date. My entire bridal party absolutely adored Meli and everyone looked stunning! One of my bridesmaids is getting married in Virginia next summer, and she asked Meli if she would travel to do her wedding! If that doesn't speak volumes to her work, I don't know what does! In addition to all of this, Meli has clearly spent time perfecting her safety and cleaning procedures in response to the pandemic in order to make everyone feel comfortable. Getting married during a pandemic was no easy task, but Meli came completely prepared and everyone felt safe. I truly have never felt more beautiful in my entire life, and I owe that to Meli :) Look no further for a makeup artist! She is hand... Read more

    Hi Katie, it has been such a pleasure to meet you ever since your makeup trial last September! I know planning a wedding under these circumstances can be stressful but I am happy everything worked out and I could be a part of it every step of the way! Thank you for everything including your wonderful review, it is greatly appreciated! :) xo, Meli

  • do yourself a favor and book meli today. not only was she GOOD, but she took the extra time to maintain very sanitary COVID procedures. she spared no product for each girl, scooping from the pot to a spatula then cleaning the spatula and brushes (or using disposable ones) between each girl. i felt so safe with her process. she listened to watch each girl wanted, and enhanced all of our faces with very little product. it was a blistering hot august day and there wasnt a smudge in sight! she was professional and super fun. i would definitely recommend/book her again!!!! $845 for bride + 7 maids

    Hi Valerie, thank you so much for your amazing review! It was wonderful to get the opportunity to do your makeup for Katie's wedding and I hope I get the opportunity to again in the future! We will definitely stay in touch! :) xo, Meli

  • I recently had a "micro wedding" (due to COVID) on a totally different date than originally planned. I needed to find a makeup artist fairly last minute, and lucky for me, Meli was available on my date! Even without a trial beforehand, she did a phenomenal job and gave me the exact look I wanted. It was truly the best professional makeup I've ever had done. It looked natural and glowing, with some sparkle! In addition to doing a great job with the makeup, Meli has a great personality and was the absolute sweetest person to be around the morning of my wedding. Given all the stress and heartbreak we had to go through with multiple date cancellations, the support of people around me on that day was especially important. Even though our wedding was nothing like we planned, and 12 guests (instead of 300), my wedding was magical and I was able to feel like a princess. Thank you, Meli!!

    Hi Jennifer, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and I am happy everything worked out perfectly on the day of your micro wedding in NYC! It was the first wedding makeup I had done after taking an extensive break due to COVID (about 3 months) so it was just as special to me to be a part of it and get back into bridal makeup again. I could not have asked for a more wonderful bride, you were a dream to work with since our initial phone conversation and I hope I get the opportunity to do your makeup again in the future! :) Please keep in touch if you ever need anything and I look forward to seeing your professional photos when you get them! xo, Meli

  • I am so glad I went with Meli! I booked her last minute for my wedding and she had no problem accommodating me. I went with a traditional glam make up look. She was able to accommodate my mother, my mother in law, and my grandmother in law as well! She is able to work with all kinds of looks and doesn’t just stick with a one-size-for-all look. Everyone was very pleased with their results, thank you for everything Meli!!!

    Hi Jacqueline, thank you so much for your review and I'm happy I was able to create the glam look you were looking for on your wedding day! I'm also happy that everyone loved their makeup. Thank you for everything! :) xo, Meli

  • Melissa did an amazing job on my wedding makeup. I wanted a very glamorous look and she took my vision above and beyond. I received many compliments on how beautiful my makeup was. I’ve known Melissa for over 10 years and she’s done my makeup many times in the past so it was only natural that I wanted her to do my bridal makeup and she more than exceeded my expectations. She is also very kind and receptive to feedback. She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy with their final look. She is also very punctual and professional. Book her!!!! You will be so happy you did!!!

  • Meli was an extremely wonderful, talented, and professional artist to work with; I highly recommend her. Not only did Meli make me feel absolutely beautiful and radiant on my wedding day, she made my mother, mother-in-law, and bridesmaids radiate with charm and allure. Meli was gentle and supportive with all of the girls, especially my mother, whom usually doesn't wear very much makeup. Even more, Meli did a gorgeous job with all of our skin complexions, which ranged from very fair to rich dark tones. To add to the entire experience, Meli's punctuality, patience, and humor made me feel truly happy and stress-free . You will be very satisfied if you choose to work with Meli.

  • Meli was an absolute pleasure to work with from initial phone consultation through to final lip gloss application before first look. She has a genuine and caring demeanor that would put even the most nervous bride at ease! Meli took time to speak over the phone for an initial consultation and gave a clear breakdown of services and prices. When meeting with her for my makeup trial, she definitely understood my vision for my wedding make up and ran with it. She took notes about the products she used so she could replicate the look exactly on the wedding day, which I really appreciated! On the day of the wedding, she and a colleague did makeup for myself, four bridesmaids, a flower girls, and both moms. Meli and her colleague worked quickly to ensure that everyone had their makeup done within the time frame allotted, but the work did not suffer at all even though they worked fast. All the girls were thrilled with their makeup including myself! Meli was a calming and pleasant presence to h... Read more

  • It was an absolute pleasure to work with Meli. She was very professional, responsive and pleasant. She always stayed in touch and promptly returned texts and call. She was flexible with scheduling a trial as well as accommodating with doing my Mom's makeup at her hotel and my makeup at the venue. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. She was not pushy and made lots of excellent suggestions. We worked together to design a look for my son's Bar Mitzvah that I was comfort with and looked amazing. She was a huge asset to me! I would not only highly recommend her but I will most definitely use her for my other son's Bar Mitzvah in two years!

    Hi Marcy, thank you so much for taking the time to write a makeup review for Ethan's Bar Mitzvah. I'm happy you felt comfortable with the look I created as that is always my top priority! It was such a pleasure to be a part of it and I look forward to doing the makeup again for you in two years for Ray's Bar Mitzvah (or perhaps sooner)!! :) Please also keep in touch any time, you are awesome!

  • Since I spoke with Meli on the phone I knew she would make my wedding day better than I could have ever dreamed of! Her work is not only beautiful, but her personality is caring and personable. She uses her bubbly personality and respect towards her work, and it is definitely noticeable when the big day comes! She spoke with me over the phone about a picture in my head of what I imagined my makeup to look like on my wedding day. She took that image, combined her subtle touch and matched my pictured image with my personality to make it above and beyond! She made me shine on my wedding day but still be me deep down. She also was so easy to speak to and communicate about many things. Her response time was incredible. Some of my bridesmaids were hesitant for their makeup to be done based on their facial characteristics, Meli made sure they felt comfortable and worked with their wishes and personalities as well to match their imagined style. To this day my bridesmaids and the two Mom's stil... Read more

  • I can only say wonderful things about my experience with Melissa on my wedding day! She arrived on site the morning of and efficiently did the makeup for all 7 girls in my bridal party as well as myself and my mother. She was professional and so sweet to work with! I honestly booked her because she was local and had experience with asians (eyes can be tricky and myself and 2 of my bridesmaids were asian) but she exceeded my expectations. She made sure that everyone felt comfortable with their look and really made sure that everything was perfect. She even made sure to check for touch ups on the girls who went first, which was greatly appreciated. I am not someone that wears makeup daily but she really made me feel beautiful and I am so happy that I booked her!

    Hi Lindsay, thank you so much for your detailed and thoughtful review! I'm happy to hear that you loved the makeup on your wedding day and that everyone also loved their makeup!

  • My experience with Meli was great from start to finish. She was very accommodating and flexible with scheduling. During the makeup trial, she redid my makeup a few times until I got exactly what I wanted. On the day of the wedding, she worked at a pretty quick pace while still maintaining a lot of attention to detail. Everyone loved their makeup. Furthermore, because she was so efficient, Meli was able to do one other bridesmaid's makeup because the other artist (not affiliated with Meli) was running behind. I highly recommend Meli for your bridal makeup!
