Having had the opportunity to grace the pages of local magazines of the Turks & Caicos Islands and walked runway shows for international as well as local designers, Melissa then took advantage of this and headed towards the road of becoming a professional Makeup Artist. A true believer in making dreams become reality this established Makeup Artist has worked for prestige fashion shows in the Turks and Caicos Islands and her work can be found throughout the Islands from magazines to billboards.
