Melissa made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day, I can’t say enough about her work! I had such a wonderful experience with her, it certainly added to the magic of my day. She was so kind, my 8 year old niece got to have her make up done for the first time and was over the moon. She does BEAUTIFUL work on all ages, my girls and Mom were stunning. I appreciate her understanding and patience with some of us who were a little more nervous with someone around their eyes did not go unrecognized, I appreciate you so much for that. If given the opportunity to work with . . . BOOK HER!!

Having Melissa and her team perform her magic for my wedding day was an absolute dream! The positive energy she brought to what can be a stressful morning was exactly what any bride needs. Not only did I look my most beautiful, but my bridesmaids glam was off the charts! You will not be disappointed.

I couldn't recommend Beyond the Skin enough! Melissa did my makeup for my wedding and she did such a great job. She made me and all of my bridesmaids feel so beautiful and we all received compliments on our makeup from family/friends attending. I would definitely book with her again and would tell all of my loved ones to as well.
