Melanie was born in Zug, Switzerland and is currently working in New York City.
She always knew that she wanted to use the body as an art form. Wanting to conform to society she started working as a biology lab assistant in Basel, Switzerland. Through her contact with people she grew to realize that she needed to be more tactile in her creativity and attended the "Maria Schweizer" esthetitian and make-up school in Zürich, Switzerland. To emprove her knowledge, she studied make-up and hair in "Make-up Designory"'s Multimedia Program in New York.
During one year she used to practice in her own cosmetic studio in Basel, Switzerland and since two years she's working for several photographers in Switzerland and New York.
While working as a make-up artist, she discovered her passion about airbrush make-up, which she uses to bring her looks to perfection.
Melanie’s skills reach from clean, fresh, dewy natural looks to sophisticated polished and creative avant-garde. Her knowledge in color theory and anatomy of the face give her the possibility to incorporate corrective make-up applications in every kind of look.
