A HOLLYWOOD BEGINNING
Founder Melanie Mills is a two-time Emmy award-winning celebrity makeup artist. Melanie Mills is one of Hollywood’s leading makeup and beauty experts. Five Guild Awards, multiple Emmy and Guild award nominations, on camera beauty expert and author of “Glitter & Glam”.
Melanie has worked on multiple hit shows and films and is most known for her work as department head makeup for Dancing With The Stars. On the set of Dancing With The Stars Melanie found herself battling bad and over used sunless spray tans. Melanie had never even heard of sunless tanning before the show. The pro dancers were obsessed as tans make skin and the body look more toned. The pro girls were using sunless tanning products from all around the world, these products paired with using them too often resulted in dried out and discolored skin.
With the new age of HD TV, one of a kind handmade costumes and a hit show that showed a lot of skin on National television - let’s just say the body makeup was stressful. Because what was available on the market wasn’t working for Melanie’s needs she started mixing up her own formulas testing them on the girls on the live shows.
When Melanie finally hit the mark the pro girls said “Melanie you did it! We are GLEAMING!” That is how the name of the product “Gleam” was born! Once she saw it was hot and in demand she collaborated with top cosmetic labs to develop the now cult favorite Gleam Face & Body Radiance’s with expansion to the current line up. Melanie has been hands-on and refined her products to be industry leading.
In 2011 Gleam By Melanie Mills launched. In 2014 it was rebranded to Melanie Mills Hollywood. For 2021 Melanie Mills Hollywood Celebrates 10 years!
Beyond a cosmetic – Gleam is a state of mind. Feeling and being Gleamalicious is feeling modern, beautiful & confident in ones own skin. I have been making celebrities & models picture perfect for years.
”Our goal here at Melanie Mills Hollywood is to take all that I have learned to create Star Quality Beauty Products for EVERY WOMAN for EVERYDAY use. We want all women to feel like a star with products that are full of fabulous ingredients, vegan, cruelty free and easy to use!”
