Katie Bouchard

 

Katie specializes in

A clean natural look. "I love subtle but power looks, the kind that make a first impression of glowing beauty and not "contoured to the gods" makeup."

Favorite makeup product

Makeup forever HD foundation, it's such a well rounded foundation between its build-able coverage and lovely satin finish.

Favorite wedding venue

Beauty Muse has taken me to Islands, Mountains, Cities and Backyards. It's so hard to pick one venue, I'm just grateful I get to work-and take in these beautiful spaces; it's incredibly therapeutic. 

Favorite career accomplishment

There's nothing better than going out shopping in the city only to find a store front completely covered in posters of your work. Getting to work on national campaigns always reminds me how far I've come in this industry. 

Besides makeup Katie is passionate about...

When I am not doing makeup I am cuddling with wolves or creating new products for my botanically based skin care line. I volunteer at Wolf Hollow, a wolf sanctuary in Ipswich MA. I will always have a soft spot for the very misunderstood creatures in this world. I also have a spiritually and physically restoring skin care line that I created with my best friend. These two things keep me grounded and focused on what's important to me.

Melissa Mack

 

Melissa specializes in

Versatility - it's all about what the client wants. I can create a beautiful natural look to a dark and sultry smokey eye. One of my best qualities as an artist is my ability to bring the bride's vision to life. I take the time to really listen and ask questions, I want to put my clients at ease when they leave their trial.

Favorite makeup product

Bobbi Brown Black Gel Liner, along with Laura Mercier smooth skin foundation.

Favorite wedding venue

I  love venues that are different than your regular ballroom. I had a bride get married at the Wang Theater. Her pictures were unbelievably beautiful because of the ornate decor and lighting inside,  I love when brides do photos on Boston Common, so beautiful!

Favorite career accomplishment

Working on all ethnicities for all occasions throughout my career as a makeup artist. I have worked in the beauty industry for 16 years with Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier and Tom Ford.

When Melissa is not doing makeup...

 I work with my husband in our antiques store. I am an animal lover and I love tending to all of my flower gardens on my days off.
