The story of MGC

My love for beauty began in the modest coastal town of Wollongong, where I was captivated by the joy of enhancing how people felt about themselves. This passion quickly evolved from offering makeovers to friends and family for their special occasions, to a deep-seated desire to pursue this path professionally.

I decided to fully immerse myself in the world of beauty and took a significant leap by enrolling in a Sydney makeup academy. There, I mastered the nuanced art of makeup artistry, sharpening my skills and defining my style. This experience didn't just refine my abilities; it redefined what I believed makeup could do.

Now, with over twenty years under my belt, I am humbled to be recognised as a leading figure in the Australian beauty industry. My work, which has adorned the pages of Vogue and Australian Woman’s Weekly, added glamour to top-rated TV shows, and lit up red carpets, is a testament to the dedication I've poured into my craft. And as my brand, Melissa Gigliotti Cosmetics, garners international acclaim, I am reminded daily of why I started this journey.

To me, Melissa Gigliotti Cosmetics is far more than a business—it's the embodiment of my lifelong devotion to beauty. I believe makeup is a powerful form of self-expression and empowerment, a means for every individual to celebrate their unique beauty and feel confident in their skin. This belief didn't just inspire my cosmetics line; it's the very foundation upon which it was created.

Each product is a love letter to those who wear it, inviting them to not only look their best but to feel their best.
