Melissa Nicholl is a Toronto based professional makeup artist who has worked in Toronto's vibrant beauty industry since 2001.


Her love of creativity began at an early age. She would spend endless hours painting and designing and being creative. Her ultimate goal in life was to be able to play dress-up for a living! Turns out you can. 

Even though her technical training has provided her with the nuts and bolts of the fashion and cosmetic world, it has been her real world experiences that have allowed her to hone her skills and find her niche in the industry.

With her diverse experience working with some of the world's top brands, Melissa's motivation has always remained the same. To make every person who works with her, feel like they are their most beautiful and confident self.
