Mélanie VigerCelebrity Makeup Artist
Toronto based celebrity makeup artist Mélanie Viger has definitely made a name for herself in the industry. From working with TV hosts on several stations to red carpet events at the Oscars, Mélanie’s work has also been published in several magazines and showcased in many fashion shows worldwide.
Originally from Ottawa, she moved to Toronto as a certified makeup artist after studying at the Versailles Academy of Professional Makeup. Upon her move, Mélanie wanted to obtain a second certification at an advanced level and studied at the Professional School of Makeup in Toronto.
Her love for makeup is based on her passion for art. As a child, Mélanie often painted and drew portraits of pictures she saw in magazines. As a young teen she suffered from severe Cystic Acne. She started to research skin conditions, treatments, and was constantly trying to find ways to conceal it. Through these experiences, she moved on to eventually become certified as a professional makeup artist.
Mélanie has had some amazing experiences travelling all over New York, Montreal, Atlanta and Miami, where she has used her makeup artistry talents and expertise on many models like Keisha Chanté, Jessica Mulroney, Jeanne Beker, Chef Mark McEwan, Chef Wolfgang Puck and professional wrestler Trish Stratus!
Mélanie has always had an extreme eye for detail, and in wanting to bring the best products and techniques to her clients, she started her own company MUAVEE in 2010. She strongly believes that makeup is one of the most impactful ways to express oneself. Everyone's idea of beauty is different and individual to them. Your face is the first thing others see when connecting with you for the first time. She thrives on her clients feeling as beautiful and unique on the outside as they do on the inside.
“Anyone who is looking to follow their dreams as an artist, is to never give up, be positive and practice as much as you can!”
