Mel has always had a passion for beauty and art for as far back as she can remember. What started as an affinity for colouring in books had transferred to a new medium – face painting – the art of makeup.
During her time at The Alberta College of Art and Design - ACAD in Calgary, AB she discovered her true passion of professional makeup artistry. She later would graduate from the Blanche MacDonald Centre’s Makeup Diploma Program in 2003.
Besides makeup artistry, Mel has a background working in retail cosmetics – a testimony to being truly customer focused and diligent about what new products are available to meet her client’s different needs.
