Melissa was born and raised in Virginia. at the tender age of 12 years old, she found her passion for makeup as she watched Lord of the Rings. She was drawn to the combination of both beauty andthe fantastically grotesque prosthetics used. Her passion grew in college, and in 2014, she was hired to work as an independent contractor for the bridal company, "GoGo Gorgeous," In Fredericksburg, Virginia.

 

In March 2018, she trained professionally at Victoria Duke's Academy of Glam in Fort Lauderdale, FL, where she not only received a certificate in makeup artistry, but received personal mentorship from celebrity makeup artist Victoria Duke herself.

 

In 2019, Melissa moved to Los Angeles to pursue even more training in television, film, airbrush, and special fx. She trained for 7 months under some of the top artists in the industry. She graduated Cinema Makeup School with multiple certifications in  January 2020.
