Mely Cruz

As far as she remembers, Mely always dreamed of being on the runway surrounded by the flashlights and glamour. As a teenager, that dream came true when she became a professional model in her hometown, Monterrey, Mexico. Later, she started her modeling career nationally and worked with numerous photographers and fashion designers in advertising campaigns and commercials. Being a model helped her understand and love the fashion and beauty industry not only in the spotlight but also “behind the scenes”. Enjoying what she did, she became eager to discover all the secrets about beauty. While combining her career in Politics and International Relations and being a professional model, she studied to become a Certified Aesthetician, specializing in makeup and hair. Having the fortune of knowing many interesting people in the modeling industry, her name quickly became well known in the fashion world in Mexico, as a model, and makeup and hair artist who understood the two sides of the business. In 2006, Mely launched her own makeup + hair artistry company, “PrettyFaces”, allowing her to acquire more experience in the industry, not only in big productions as runways and fashion shows, but also in the bridal and the day-to-day look. During the last years, Mely has performed thousands of makeovers, makeup lessons and seminars motivating many to discover their own beauty through her unique concept. 

In 2010 "Pretty Faces" (now Mellum Artistry) expanded internationally and established in Houston, TX where she is quickly growing! Later on, while on a trip to NYC she had the opportunity to create her ver own makeup label, Melon Cosmetics, something that she had always dreamed of! Mely’s mission is to use her amazing gift and life experience to continue encouraging women to discover their beauty inside and out, and to believe that dreams do come true!
