Some kids play with toys, some run riot in the park, but Mel Arter’s favourite activity was witnessing her mother at her dressing table, artfully applying makeup. Both art and makeup became passions, and after passing A level Art with flying colours she enrolled on a fashion photographic makeup course. Within a year she had her first agent, and she went on to teach at the world-renowned Glauca Rossi school.
Mel soon became a backstage regular at global fashion weeks; her cool, conceptual style (informed by Hitchcock and Kubrick’s movies and her extensive music collection) is in demand from designers such as Mark Fast, David Koma and Maria Grachvogel to name just a few. It’s not just in a show environment that Mel thrives; glossies turn to her to create some of their most beautiful, creative beauty shoots and stories.
It wasn’t long before Max Factor snapped her up as a brand ambassador, and along with the legendary likes of Caroline Barnes and Pat McGrath Mel continues to innovate and push the boundaries of beauty. Celebrities love her subtle touch too- Mel was Amy Winehouse’s go-to make-up artist and inspiring women such as Kate Winslet, Kristen Scott-Thomas and Venus Williams have all benefitted from Ms Arter’s artistry. As a Get The Gloss expert, Mel will also be on hand to lend you her tips, tricks and extensive wisdom.
