Booking Melissa and her team was one of the BEST decisions I made for the day! Melissa and Miranda did my make-up as well as my maid of honor and the bride and groom's mom's make-up. Everyone loved how their make-up came out and we received so many compliments throughout the day on how our make-up looked so natural and stayed so well. Melissa also provides a amazing service to provide touch-ups on location before, during, and after pictures. She came with us to our picture location, and stayed with us until after the ceremony to make sure I and my bridal party still had lipstick on, wasn't shiny and looked as fresh as we did earlier in the day. If you are going to have your make-up done I highly recommend this service, especially during the hot and humid summer months. I had been for a couple of trials and just wasn't getting the look I was looking for. I wanted something natural while still looking great in pictures. As soon as I had my trial I knew that Melissa was it! The touch-up service she provides does provided me with the reassurance that no matter what the weather my make-up was going to look great and also gives you that ``movie star`` treatment that you deserve on your day. I would recommend Melissa and her team without a doubt to any friend or family. You will not be disappointed in her work!

Where do I start?? I had three awful experiences when looking for a make up artist. I was going to give up. I finally met with Melissa and I was so happy I could have cried! She understood EVERYTHING I loved and didn't like with make up. She took the time to ask questions and listen. At my trial I was blown away by my amazing make up. I booked her right then and there. Come wedding day, Melissa was 15 minutes early with a smile! My make up was perfect and stunning. It was glamorous without being too much. She does natural glam so well. Thank you Melissa! I would recommend her to anyone and she will be my go to artist for every special occasion.

M.A.W was a fantastic choice! My entire bridal party and myself felt absolutely beautiful. Hair & makeup flawless!! The girls were very professional, time efficient and catered to the wishes of each member of my bridal party. We truly enjoyed working with Melissa & her team and would recommend M. A.W. Studios to any bride to be!

Melissa did hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. She did airbrush on everyone and it was AMAZING!!!! I was very concerned because I had an outdoor wedding and it is very hot and humid in the Dominican during this time of year, but Melissa made us all look like movie stars even in the blazing heat. Our makeup looked flawless and it didn't smudge or smear even after standing in the sun for my ceremony. Melissa styled my hair in a side swept cascade of curls. I was afraid that due to the heat and humidity my hairdo would fall as soon as I stepped outside, but she did an amazing job, she used great products which gave my hair the appropriate amount of hold without looking stiff. My curls were full and bouncy and they stayed the entire night, even through the hot weather and night of dancing! I was so happy with the way I looked on my wedding day. I can tell that she's really passionate about what she does. She's so creative and talented and it shows in her personal presentation, the job she did on me and my bridesmaids, and even in the way she organized her tools before she began working on my bridal party. I would absolutely recommend Melissa's services to any bride, it was well worth bringing my own makeup artist from home to my destination wedding.
