Hi I'm Melissa Greening a talented and experienced Freelance makeup artist from the West Midlands. I knew I wanted to be a makeup artist from the age of 7 when I used to become very excited about blue eyeshadow in those £9.99 sets from Argos. At the age of 16 I'd had enough of dreaming and decided to make my dream a reality and enrolled on a specialist Beauty course at College for two years. I then went on to manage a beauty salon for 5 years and although I loved working in the salon and meeting so many great people my passion was still makeup focused and I wanted to pursue the ultimate dream of becoming a professional full-time makeup artist.
I have been lucky enough to be trained by top celebrity makeup artist Ariane Poole who has appeared in various fashion magazines and worked with high profile celebrities, this has led me to work on many fantastic and exciting projects over the past year.
I have been able to build an amazing portfolio and have a career in an industry I really love and that I'm really passionate about. I've been able to travel, work on catwalk shows, TV shows, work with celebrities and real life brides.
Thank you for visiting my site and please take some time to look at some of my work. Remember to pop back whenever you get chance as this site will be regularly updated with exciting future projects.

London Fashion week

My latest big adventure was working at London Graduate Fashion Week from the 6th - 8th June. For the first time in my career I had to manage a team of ten Makeup artists and create makeup looks for each of the individual catwalk shows, some of the which also had up to four different looks. 

Here are some images of the various make-up looks I created. Each college presented me with a "look book" which I then I adapted, I showed my vision to my team of students and we then re-created it on the models. 

Check out the fabulous outfits from all the talented fashion students!
