Mel trained to become a professional makeup artist at Southampton Solent University, graduating with a BA(Hons) in hair and make up design. Since graduating she has worked on a variety of assignments from music videos, short films and feature films to beauty and editorial shoots. As well as working privately for a number of clients on weddings and special occasions.
Mel prides herself on having a professional attitude on every job, and knows the importance of having a calm and reassuring manner towards every client she encounters.
With a passion for eco friendly, cruelty free and organic makeup brands, Mel founded e-commerce website Glow Organic in September 2015. Her aim is to get as many women as possible using natural, organic, cruelty free and eco friendly brands, and prove that they work just as well as mainstream products. Many ingredients in mainstream products are still to this day tested on animals, and the packaging is often not eco friendly. These brands also often use harsh, chemical ingredients to preserve products, or add fragrances that are not necessary. Skin can be irritated by these ingredients, especially when worn for long periods of time. Mel strongly believes in not compromising the environment, animals and our health in the name of beauty.
