About Melanie

I’ve been a licensed esthetician and makeup artist for 10 years. After graduating from the International Academy of Hair Design & Aesthetics in 2010 I have taken ongoing education from SWINA, Skin Script, PCA, Xtreme Lashes, Scalpa Academy, and The International Dermal Institute, becoming a certified Dermalogica Expert. I’ve always having a passion for creativity, and studied fine arts such as drawing, painting, and sculpture which has been especially beneficial in exceling as a professional makeup artist. I always listen to each client’s specific concerns and customize my services for their skin type and conditions. Whether helping clients to achieve a healthy glowing complexion or glamming them up for a special occasion, I love helping  people look and feel their best.

What People are Saying About Melanie…

Melanie always does a fabulous job! I used her three times! Once for my engagement photos, for my wedding and then again for my maternity photos! She is very talented at contouring and bringing out the best in you! I like the way she used natural colors for me! She does airbrushing and does a great job with it! She is punctual and reliable! I will use her again!



My lashes looked great! They looked natural, felt comfortable, and stayed on incredibly long!!! I couldn’t believe how many weeks they lasted! Mel was amazing!

Melanie is a talented professional. She is creative and artistic, but listens to her clients desired outcome. Melanie did a beautiful job with my daughter’s wedding makeup. She is incredible. I would highly recommend her!

 – Lynn

I have gotten facials from Melanie on several occasions and always have had a fantastic experience! She takes time to make sure the products used are compatible with my sensitive skin, and let me know if something might cause tingling or temporary redness before applying it. I’ve had facials at OTHER spas and had them scrutinize my pores under a microscope, which left me feeling anxious and self conscious. THIS place always makes me feel relaxed, refreshed, and beautiful. 🙂

 – Brandi

I got my eyelashes done by Melanie and they were amazing! I asked for more of a natural but noticeable look and she did exactly that. Overall it was a great experience!

 – Camille

My experience with Melanie was amazing. I desperately needed a jump start, my skin was a mess. She was very thorough and I felt so relaxed by the time she was finished. Three days later, my skin looked better than it had in months.

 – Mandy

Melanie gave me a chocolate mint facial that smelled yummy and felt great! The extractions was the coolest part I think… The next day at school I was getting compliments on my skin, I honestly didn’t think people could notice a change just because I did. But they noticed, and what’s more important I can feel my skin smoother, no bumps and there is less redness…. I am glad that we decided to visit this salon, no more trial and error for us. We have found our beauty sanctuary.

I’ve been to Simply Ravishing several times over the past couple of months and love it! Melanie, the aesthetician, is amazing. I am very specific about the look of my eyebrows and she got them perfect the very first time (this was after a very bad experience at another salon). I then started going to her for facials for some issues with acne. My skin was completely clear within one week of my first visit. I know go back on a regular basis for facials to keep my skin looking great. I highly recommend Simply Ravishing.

 – Jasmine

I have been getting services at Simply Ravishing for years now… I have had facials along with massages. Just recently my daughter had her make up done and up do for prom. Excellent job!

 – Susan

Melanie used a variety of facial, arm, hand and scalp massage techniques to calm my body throughout the treatment – it was by far one of the most relaxing facials I’ve experienced and my skin was seriously glowing when finished.

Melanie Foster did a fantastic job accommodating a very large wedding party for my sister’s wedding. She arrived on time with all of her supplies ready to go. She was very knowledgeable regarding which colors would look best on each of the girls and the make-up looked natural yet very polished. Our make up was done in plenty of time for us to have pictures taken with the wedding photographer and Melanie even offered to do any last minute touch ups that may have been needed. The make-up lasted all night yet was easy to take off at the end of the night. I would highly recommend Melanie’s services to anyone looking.

 – Holly

I love the lash extensions I got from Melanie! Her precision and attention to detail along with her steady hand made for perfect eyelashes! The entire process was so relaxing and went smoothly from start to finish! I was surprised at how long they lasted. Go with Melanie! You won’t regret it! (I can’t wait for her to do my glam makeup for my next special event too!!) ^^
