Melissa has a passion for make up that has carried her across the world. She has collaborated on projects for such fashion dignitaries as Alexander McQueen, Oscar De La Renta, Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood.
Her precise eye for detail has allowed her to work with a variety of celebrities from Tilda Swinton, Helen Mirren, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys and Pamela Anderson among others.
She is comfortable in any situation where she has the opportunity to talk make up. From television shows such as Canada AM, City Line, E Talk and ET Canada where she is called upon to be the voice of the expert, to back stage at such events as Deal or No Deal Canada and fashion shows in both Brazil and Australia as the Key.
