Born in Manchester, but London based, Melanie has over 10 year’s experience working in the makeup industry. After joining MAC Cosmetics as an Artist, her love of makeup lay in beauty and bridal, as she enjoyed making people look and feel like the very best versions of themselves. As she grew in her role, her passion for teaching and customer service became apparent and soon became a Trainer and later a Regional Trainer looking after MAC’s most prestigious free standing doors and department stores in London.
In 2018, Melanie joined the Illamasqua team to head up Education and Training and has since worked backstage at Fashion Week under Pablo, as well as building the strategic and educational content to ensure the Illamasqua heritage of artistry and service excellence is upheld to the highest standards.
"Where will you find me next? Doing some live QVC shows, creating training content or coaching our instore teams."
