Featured Artist: Melody

A talented & creative artist with an adventurous soul. Melody’s love for makeup began in high school where she would model for hair shows & competitions. Being so intrigued by what the makeup artists were creating, her curiosity led her to Vancouver 10 years ago where she completed her makeup artistry course. What she loves most about doing makeup is having the opportunity to bring out every clients natural beauty, & to enhance their unique features.

Originally from Hungary, Melody is active in the local Hungarian community, including being a part of a Hungarian dance group. This has also allowed her to utilize her incredible talent by doing makeup for the performances & events. She is a huge lover of travelling, going to the theatre, enjoying coffee with friends & spending time with her cute lil’ pup Hugo.

As a bride-to-be herself, Melody has an amazing eye & passion for bridal makeup. Through her years of being an artist, specifically in bridal beauty, Melody has become so versatile in the looks she creates- everything from a soft glowing natural look, to a more bold, dramatic look and everything in between. During her time here at Avenue Beauty, she has inspired us all & continues to do so as we watch her in her element and see her artistic skills flourish with each and every wedding season. We hope you get a chance to meet Melody- to experience her talent and to hopefully chat about some incredible places in the world.


Featured Artist & Stylist: KELLY

We can’t say enough amazing things about this beautiful lady. She is so full of love, positivity, drive and incredible talent. Kelly has been apart of the Avenue Beauty team for well over 6 years and we have loved every moment it. Her training started back in her native Chicago where she worked with Stewart Talent Modelling Agency in the commercial print department. From there, her talents took her doing photoshoots, weddings and reality tv. As a cast member of the Bachelor in 2003, she was able to continue her practice on her cast mates as well as for her post appearances including The View, Oprah and Ellen.

Once meeting her amazing husband (not from the bachelor), life took them over to Europe for a bit of time and she was able to continue her artistry on fashion shoots, public relation tours, red carpet events and personal styling. Her excitement for doing makeup, hair & fashion stems from using her beauty skills on a client’s outer beauty, which in turn makes that individuals inner beauty soar from within.
