About Me

**For more examples of my work please view my website at, follow me on instagram @Meli_Mermaid or tag search #MakeupByMeliG**

Hey everyone,
I am back in the swing of things! Open to all work, paid or TFP! My schedule is very open. I have some amazing ideas, LET'S COLLAB?

Thee name is Melissa. I'm a San Francisco based makeup artist. I hope to network with models & photographers who might be in need of a makeup artist. I began doing makeup in 2006, it quickly became an obsession. I do all styles of makeup with professional quality results, I just haven't had the time to work on my portfolio. I have a million and one ideas bouncing around in my head. I find inspiration in absolutely EVERYTHING. I am looking to work with other creative individuals to bring to life my abstract & out-of-the-box visions. My prices are very reasonable, But I am willing to do TFP work as well.

Job History:
Freelance 2006-2007
MAC Cosmetics 2007-2010
NARS Cosmetics 2010-2011
Giorgio Armani Beauty 2011-2012
Currently: Freelance MUA

For Trade work, please send me jobs that I will benefit from. Trades in which I will receive professional & portfolio quality photos.
What would I like to see in my port right now?
1. Something abstract.
2. Something bloody
5. Basic head shots >PROFESSIONALLY EDITED< model wearing any type of beauty/glamour makeup.
6. Editorial/High Fashion.
7. Traditional Indian makeup. Deep cut-crease, jewels, vibrant colors...

What type of work will I turn down for TF shoots?
1. No pornographic nudes, unless head shots are also taken at some point during the shoot. (artistic/tasteful/implied nude okay.)
2. If I don't think the theme of the shoot will benefit my port, I might first ask for compensation or I might respectfully decline. Please inquire!
3. I will not do trade for a basic "smokey eye", simply because I have enough of that type of look in my port already & need to showcase a broader range of my abilities. (this is flexible depending on the shoot, please inquire.)

I am pretty open, feel free to inquire if you aren't sure if I'll accept trade or not.

Thanks =)

Have a blessed day!
