I am a professional freelance Make-up Artist based in Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne and surrounding areas, specialising in bridal, photographic and occasion makeup.

I’m Melanie, Award winning Make-up Artist in Northumberland with a huge passion for make-up. I specialise in Bridal, Editorial and Occasion make-up.
I’m married with a family and have my lovely little Jack Russell called Monty who I love taking for walks. I’m lucky enough to have worked in the Beauty Industry for over twenty years and turned my love for Make-up into a business I truly love . It’s true when they say “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Working in the cosmetic Industry has gained me many years of experience working with all ages, keeping me up to date with constant trend changes and innovative new products. I absolutely love make up and have always had a passion about learning different looks and techniques and understand the importance of keeping up-to-date with ever changing trends.
Having originally trained as a Beauty Therapist at college I quickly realised my main passion was make-up and making people feel good about themselves. My business ethos is built upon inspiring women of all ages. I have pride in myself that my natural style can make women, regardless of age, look and feel confident in their own skin. My natural signature style is timeless and chic. It compliments all women, all genres and all ages. Make up should build upon and emphasise the beauty that already exists.
Over twenty years I’ve gained experience working within the Fashion, Photographic, TV and Bridal Industries. My early television debut was on a well known make up programme. It was a wonderful experience and I gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise on how make up reacts differently under the camera and lights. The experience was incredibly valuable as it gave a true insight into real women and their insecurities. Building confidence is therefore an integral part of my job. I aim to create a beautiful look that boosts self belief, creating the assurance needed and being comfortable within yourself.
I have been running my business within the Bridal industry for over two decades. I can’t tell you enough how much I truly love it.
My relaxed and friendly personality makes it easy to discuss your very own requirements so that you can have your make up exactly how you want it and fit in with your own make up style.
I’m fully insured and work either mobile or studio based. My beautiful bespoke studio is in Cramlington. My exclusive make-up kit contains luxury branded products that look amazing in real life but are also incredibly photogenic and also in print. The products have been expertly picked to ensure that they are transfer and humidity resistant and will last you for the full day.
I am constantly keeping up with many new techniques, although it is often the classic makeup that stands the test of time. Working within the beauty industry keeps me up to date with the latest trends, looks and products. I am passionate about finding out about newly launched products and love to talk about and share them with you over on my Facebook page and the blog.
I now have my studio where I offer a variety of luxury treatments that you can book as a pamper and indulge. You can even add on these Pre bridal services to create a unique bridal package. A variety of express beauty treatments which include :
