The melli Brand has always been about a natural effortless look. Skin that looks like skin. Lashes that are lifted,defined and fluttery. Eye shadow that brings out your eye colour and soft pretty lipsticks. ( Mind you we do have a few 'statement' shades in the range which are usually a limited edition ) but the majority of our shades are timeless,natural soft and pretty.
Meghan Markle could almost have been a melli cover girl for the natural look that we love,promote and aspire to.
To achieve Meghan's look -
Velvet Mousse Primer - mainly over the tzone as the perfect skin prep
A melli Custom Blend Foundation - or if you dont have a Foundation Bar near you the melli Luxe Lumiere is a sheer to medium slightly dewy foundation that you can buff into the skin to achieve that sheer glow that lets your skin shine through
Sweet Cheeks Cream Blush -applied to the apples of your cheeks
Chocolate Brown eyeliner - Placed on the inner rim ( waterline ) on the top and bottom lashes
Adorn eyeliner - Slightly smudged into the lashline top and bottom
Chocolate Eyeshadow - smudged ever so softly over Adorn eye pencil
Fibre Mascara - layered into the lashes from the roots to the tips and fanned out on the outer lashes
Naked lipliner - to line the lips to even out the shape then colour the lip all over as a base
Cupcake lipstick - applied in 2 layers for longevity ( our best selling bridal lipstick )

Ada Nicodemou from Home & Away was recently made up by talented resident Home & Away Makeup Artist Laura Vazquez.
Laura actually was a regular character in the bay playing Sarah Thompson in the 90's. Very cool that she is back on the set, but now on the other side of the camera making everyone look gorgeous !

I love to create the illusion of healthy glowing skin by applying Sweet Cheeks Cream Blush to the apples of the cheeks.
Its the perfect shade of peach with a pack of pigment and being a true cream blush ( doesnt dry to a powder finish) it gives a dewy youthful look to the skin.
Best applied with a slightly damp beauty pod...just smile and pat into the apples and feather it back to the ear with the strength of the colour on the apples of the cheeks.
Its my go to product for creating healthy skin with a pretty flush of natural colour.
I use it for all my red carpet events and regularly on Channel 9 each week.
Erin Molan one of my favorite faces ever to makeup up .

With ten years up our sleeve of creating Custom Blend Foundations we were honored to be interviewed by Professional Beauty as the Aussie specialists in Custom Blend in their Personalisation reshaping the Beauty Industry article.
Its a fantastic read about Custom Blend to give you a little more insight on the real deal and specialists in the worldwide market of Custom Blend.
Here's a little of the article -
Melissa Carter of personalised makeup brand Melli Cosmetics believes online shopping and the globalisation of beauty retailers are behind the inspiration for her company, with the Australian entrepreneur dedicated to standing out in a market saturated for choice.
“Women are more informed and have a plethora of choice but are still seeking more,” she tells Professional Beauty. “This is where customisation comes in.”
“It’s imperative to really and truly listen to the client when it comes to a custom made product. Communication and a thorough consultation is the key.”
“We have always said this is not just a service but an experience. We love that the client walks away feeling special. We have listened, we have connected and they leave with their bottle of foundation that wasn’t just purchased off a shelf but ‘ formulated with love ‘ just for them.”
