Melissa’s passion for makeup artistry began over 20 years ago when she discovered the art of making women look and feel beautiful!

Melissa McNamara Hollywood Makeup Artist

That experience has shaped a long career working behind the scenes at magazine shoots, fashion shows, fashion week and leading seminars teaching artistry techniques to makeup artists and to every-day women who want to learn professional techniques they can use at home.

Her 10 years as a makeup artistry educator also delivers real-life experience and hands-on expertise.

As the former Training Executive at Smashbox Cosmetics and the lead instructor for LA Makeup School, Melissa now has her own business teaching women one-on-one and teaching group workshops. Melissa also conducts a professional makeup artistry training program at her private studio in Los Angeles, California.
