MÉLANIE VIGER

Celebrity Makeup Artist
 

I strongly believe that makeup is one of the most impactful ways to express yourself. Everyone's idea of beauty is different and individual to them, whether that is all-natural to full glamour. Your face is the first thing others see when connecting with you for the first time. Creating a positive first impression of oneself is so important and easy to achieve. Each and every application I do is specifically tailored to that persons' personality, image, skin type, and style. I thrive on my clients feeling as beautiful and unique on the outside as they do on the inside. 

I am a Toronto based Makeup artist who is highly active as an industry influencer working with many tv stations, commercial brands, photographers, designers and models with work seen in several magazines, print, fashion shows, newspapers, television, the oscars and growing.  I Have also partnered with PUR cosmetics as their Celebrity Makeup artist to design their "PRO Lashes" collection.

My love for makeup is based on my passion for art. When I was into arts as a child I often painted and drew portraits of pictures I saw in magazines. As a young teen I suffered from Severe Cystic Acne and I started to research skin conditions, treatments, and was constantly trying to find ways to conceal it. Through these experiences I moved on to eventually become certified as a Professional Makeup Artist by Versailles Academy in Ottawa and certified as an advance artist by the Pro school or Makeup in toronto.
